Cute Teaser Posters Released for Upcoming Seo Kang Joon JTBC Drama “The Third Charm”

Although Are You Human? wasn’t a ratings success, it gave Seo Kang Joon more acting cred and garnered him a slew of new fans who will be happy to see him again so quickly.

The Third Charm tells a 12-year-long love story about two 20-year-olds who meet on a blind date. Will it be like When Harry Met Sally?

Seo Kang Joon (Entourage, Cheese in the Trap) plays On Joon Young, a straight-laced, good university student while Esom (Because This Is My First Life) plays Lee Young Jae, an honest, spontaneous hairdresser. As expected, their personalities clash and it’ll lead to love.

Other cast include Yang Dong Geun (Missing Nine) as Lee Dong Jae, a barista and the brother Lee Young Jae lives with; Lee Young Ji (Ex-Girlfriend Club) as Baek Joo Ran her boss; and Park Gyu Young (Just Between Lovers) as On Ri Won, Joon Young’s younger sister.

It’s directed by Pyo Min Soo (The Producers, Full House) and written by Park Eun Young & Park Hee Kwon (Romance Full of Life). I think this director does a great job with romances so I just might check this one out.

Here are the posters:

The Third Charm is scheduled to premiere on JTBC on September 28th.

    Maybe it wasn’t a ratings ‘success’ in South Korea as it aired without counting things like video uploads etc, but it’s a ratings success on the streaming sites.
    The antiquated ratings system SK still uses does NOT reflect the true popularity of anything.

      I wish there were a reliable way for them to track international viewers. With all the illegal sites I understand that that would be nearly impossible. But even if they just used Viki, DF, and Kocowa, they could surely get an idea? But, what do I know. I was really surprised by how much I loved this show! I went in with little expectations and it became my most anticipated drama. I really need lovely love stories like this and the messages about unconditional love and acceptance came through loud and clear. The only thing is, it really needed to be a few episodes longer. Human Shin deserved to have his story more fleshed out and have a longer redemptive curve than the slapdash quick ending they gave.
