“Love is for Suckers” tells the story of a “realistic survival romance” between Goo Yeo Reum (Lee Da Hee) and Park Jae Hoon (Super Junior‘s Choi Siwon), who have been best friends for 20 years. The pair begins to experience romantic feelings for each other after unexpectedly meeting as a producing director (PD) and cast member of a reality dating show.
Jo Soo Hyang stars as Kang Chae Ri, the overall director for the reality dating show “The Kingdom of Love,” which is breaking records in viewership ratings with its evil editing and sensational setting. Although she and Goo Yeo Reum started off on the same foot by attending the same college and entering the entertainment department at the same time, they have vastly contrasting results to show for it after 10 years. Unexpectedly, the two wind up working on “Kingdom of Love” together, creating fierce competition in both work and love.
The newly released stills capture Goo Yeo Reum and Kang Chae Ri glaring at each other after running into one another in the broadcasting station hallway. Goo Yeo Reum forces out a smile while holding back her anger, while Kang Chae Ri maintains a pokerface, raising questions about how they came to be enemies.
However, despite their rival status in the drama, the two actresses showcased great teamwork and chemistry on site, impressing the staff. The production team shared, “Lee Da Hee’s and Jo Soo Hyang’s [characters] create friction at every step due to their opposite personalities and different directing styles,” sharing that they will have relatable chemistry as co-workers.
ENA’s “Love is for Suckers” premieres on October 5 at 9 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki with subtitles.
