[Hot Takes from the Noonas] Lee Yeon-hee and Yeo Jin-goo courted for fantasy romance “Reunited Worlds”
The brainchild of the writer and director of “The Girl Who Sees Smells”, “Reunited Worlds” is looking to team up Yeo Jin-goo and Lee Yeon-hee as lovers who were born at the same time but aged differently.
Does this count as a noona romance? Not exactly, though given the actual age difference between the two possible leads, it definitely looks like one. Lee Yeon-hee has been offered the role of a woman who works as a nurse in the home of a rich housewife, but dreamed of being a manga artist until life got in the way. Yeo Jin-goo, meanwhile, has been offered the role of well, a high school student.
There’s no explanation yet of why they’re not the same age, but since Chaeyeon has already been cast as the younger version of Lee Yeon-hee’s character, we can assume that at some point they were? Either way, I’ll be curious to see if the team who pulled off “The Girl Who Sees Smells” can do the same with this oddball premise.
“Reunited Worlds” is set to air in July on SBS.
