All About Lee Sung Kyung & Kim Young Kwang New Korean Drama, CALL IT LOVE
Disney+ successfully made its presence among Korean drama fans with Snowdrop last year. Even with various issues and controversies surrounding its historical distortion, Snowdrop managed to captivate the viewers with Jung Hae In and BLACKPINK Jisoo as its main cast, giving Disney+ a steady and powerful root in the community.
This year, the platform welcomed 2023 with its first Korean drama Connect. Although the response may not be as massive as Snowdrop’s, fans truly enjoyed watching Jung Hae In, Go Kyung Pyo, and Kim Hye Jung’s performances in the psycho-thriller drama.
Today, Disney+ returns with a whole new different genre for its new Korean drama project, Call It Love. Set in a romance melodrama genre with revenge as its central issue, Call It Love depicts a story of a woman going against her real personality to take revenge on the person who made her life miserable. But in the process, she questions her purpose and reaches a different realization.
Lee Sung Kyung as Shim Woo Joo
Dancer-model-actress Lee Sung Kyung will be playing the main character Shim Woo Joo, a woman who goes against her real personality for her revenge.
Shim Woo Joo’s ordinary life suddenly takes a turn after her father gets involved in a romantic affair. Her life becomes miserable due to her father and his mistress, and it worsens after her father’s death. Even though the mistress only dated her father for a while, she kicks Shim Woo Joo out of her home, ignoring that she is the legitimate daughter.
Bitter and hurt by the mistress’ actions, Shim Woo Joo decides to go against her constitution and personality to get revenge. She starts by approaching the mistress’ son, Han Dong Jin, and uses him to begin her revenge plot.
Little did she know that Han Dong Jin was entirely different from what she had expected. She begins to develop mixed feelings in the process. Does the man really deserve her revenge? Will Shim Woo Joo continue her revenge, knowing that she starts falling in love with him?
Lee Sung Kyung gains massive anticipation for this role because it will be the first time the actress performs a character with such a conflicted inner battle.
Seeing how she had perfected her roles in Sh**ting Stars and Dr. Romantic series, Lee Sung Kyung is expected to portray the complicated emotions in Shim Woo Joo perfectly, producing a brand new transformation and giving her a massive leap to rise as South Korea’s top-tier actress.
Kim Young Kwang as Han Dong Jin
Acting alongside Lee Sung Kyung is actor Kim Young Kwang who will play the mistress’ son, Han Dong Jin.
Han Dong Jin is a young CEO of Choiseon Fairs. He is your basic workaholic male-lead character who likes to bury himself in his work. Being the son of her father’s ex-mistress, Shim Woo Joo targeted him as the start of her revenge plot. However, as they get to know each other, she realizes that Han Dong Jin has suffered from loneliness all his life.
The appearance of Shim Woo Joo in his life begins to change Han Dong Jin’s life. But what will he do after knowing Shim Woo Joo’s revenge plans against his mother?
Actor Kim Young Kwang has previously showcased stunning performances in Somebody and Hello, Me!. This time, anticipations are high as he will be portraying the complexity of a person who has spent his entire life in loneliness. Will he be able to do it well?
EXID Hani as Kang Min Young
Following her sensational performance in Hit the Spot adult romance drama, idol-actress EXID Hani returns to the small screen with a completely different character.

Kim Ye Won as Shim Hye Sung
Finally, we have talented actress Kim Ye Won playing Shim Woo Joo’s older sister, Shim Hye Sung.
Unlike his little sister Shim Woo Joo, Shim Hye Sung decided to focus more on her life. Therefore, she wanders in search of the true love she long desires. The question is: will she find it eventually?
When is The Release Date?
Now that you understand the storyline and the basic concept of Call It Love Korean drama, are you excited for its release date?
Indeed, Call It Love Korean drama may not be a cruel noir revenge project like My Name or The Glory. However, it will give us another brand-new perspective on revenge. Instead of focusing on the past wounds and payback, it may provide us with more relatable insights to move on and heal ourselves from such horrible heartbreak.
As of today, there have been no updates on who will play the ex-mistress of Shim Woo Joo’s father. But we sure hope that the actress will be someone who can ignite the viewers’ emotions in performing the character.
