After playing indelible characters, ranging from a vulnerable yet outwardly confident girl in “Burning” to a psychopath in “The Call,” Jeon Jong-seo is set to portray the girl-next-door in the new romantic comedy film, “Nothing Serious.”
Jeon, who was most recently seen in the Hollywood movie, “Mona Lisa and the Blood Moon,” plays Ja-young, who is dumped by her boyfriend after dating for a month. Broken-hearted, Ja-young joins a dating app to ease her loneliness.
Son, who is known for his roles in the dramas “Sense 8” (2016-17), “Be Melodramatic” (2019) and “D.P.” (2021), plays Woo-ri, a sex columnist who dreams of writing his own novel. He still hasn’t recovered from a breakup and is bad at dating, but also decides to join the dating app.
Under an agreement not to share personal information, such as their real name, reason for joining the dating app and feelings for each other, they meet and find they have a lot to talk about.
Having much in common naturally leads to love, but the two are still recovering from previous relationships.
“Nothing Serious” is the first commercial film directed by Jeong Ga-young, known for her short films including “Love Jo, Right Now” (2017). The cast also features talented actors Kim Seul-ki, Gong Min-jeung and Im Seong-jae.
“Nothing Serious” will hit local theaters in November.Internet Explorer Channel Network
