Netflix has announced new K-drama The Interest Of Love will be dropping on the platform next month.
By Netflix’s standards, the announcement of the programme is rather last-minute, considering the first episode is less than a month away. The office romance programme stars Yoo Yeon Sok and Moon Ga Young, who work as employees at the Yeongo branch at Nara Bank.
The screenplay has been crafted by Lee Hyun Jung, Lee Seo Hyun, and director Jo Young Min. Meanwhile, in South Korea, The Interest Of Love will air on cable television, jTBC. In total, the first series contains 16 episodes, and they are expected to be released on a weekly basis. It’s the latest K-drama to air on Netflix after Gyeongseong Creature.
According to What’s On Netflix, the synopsis reads: “Takes place at Nara Bank’s Yeongpo branch, which is celebrating the 99th anniversary of its foundation. The story focuses on the scandalous office romance between the characters Ha Sang Soo, Ahn Soo Young, Park Mi Kyung, and Jung Jong Hyun. Ha Sang Soo, the senior head of the comprehensive consultation team at Nara Bank’s Yeongpo branch.
“Ha Sang Soo has had this position for three years already, and he is a handsome, intelligent, and sturdy person who will not waver in the face of life’s difficulties. Although he is an upright character, Ha Sang Soo is not cold or too formal but rather warmhearted with a humorous side. Not to mention, he has an athletic form fit for a national athlete rather than a bank employee. He entered his job as the top employee from Nara Bank’s training center, so he is very popular but also the source of envy for many others.”
It concluded: “Ahn Soo Young is a fourth-year chief bank teller at Nara Bank’s Yeongpo branch. Known as the goddess of Yeongpo branch, she possesses gorgeous looks and a sweet voice. She started off as a part-time teller and is now a fourth-year chief, but she seems to be forever stuck at that level.”
