Missing Nine is a drama I haven’t been paying much attention to. The little I knew of it made it sound like a Lost rip-off but with the first teaser released, I read up on it and say what? It’s a rom-com!
Seo Joon Ho (Jung Kyung Ho) is an unsuccessful top star who went through hard times. He was once a leader of a popular idol band, but his public image was ruined, and he is now reduced to being a D-list fringe celebrity. Meanwhile, Ra Bong Hee (Baek Jin Hee) is Joon Ho’s new stylist. She left her home to pursue her dreams in Seoul. Her first day working ends up with a plane crash and landing on a uninhabited island.
I’m not particularly impressed with either of the leads but the drama could be fun if done right. And it just might be because it’s written by Han Jung Hoon (38 Task Force) and directed by Ashbun (Angry Mom).
The teaser makes it look more like an action-packed thriller than a romantic comedy so I wonder if the intel is wrong. We’ll see.
Missing Nine takes over for Weightlifting Fairy, Kim Bok Joo, premiering in January 11th on MBC.
