2AM’s Lim Seulong to Transform into Elite Lawyer in Drama ‘Hogu’s Love’
2AM’s Lim Seulong has been confirmed for Hogu’s Love.
tvN’s upcoming drama Hogu’s Love is a romantic comedy about Kang Hogu (Choi Woo Shik), who has no experience in dating at all, reuniting with his first love and the national swimming team’s goddess Do Do Hee (Uee) and getting involved in a complicated relationship and dangerous friendship.
Lim Seulong will be acting as lawyer ‘Byun Kang Chul,’ who has never experienced failure in his life. As a member of 2AM, Lim Seulong has expanded his activities to dramas and movies, receiving recognition for his acting ability.
‘Byun Kang Chul’ is a perfect man who grew up in the top 1 percent of Korea. Unlike Hogu, who has never had a girlfriend and has no dating skills, Byun Kang Chul has been superior since birth to the point where he doesn’t need dating skills. However in reality, he is sloppier than Hogu and will be catching the hearts of the female viewers with his charms.
An affiliate of tvN stated, “With Lim Seulong joining, the four main cast members, including Uee, Choi Woo Shik and Lee Soo Kyung, have been confirmed. Hogu’s Love is a romance drama about Korea’s representative ‘hogu’ (pushover), who always gets pushed and tricked, named Kang Hogu, the national swimming team’s goddess Do Do Hee, the ace lawyer Byun Kang Chul and the expert of ‘push and pull’ Kang Ho Su. It will be a cheerful and comical drama with unique characters, so we ask for your anticipation.”
Meanwhile, Hogu’s Love will be directed by director Pyo Min Su, who worked on KBS’ Iris2, Full House, The World That They Live In and more, and written by writer Yoon Nan Joong, who wrote the scripts of Flower Boy Ramen Shop, Queen of the Office and more.

The drama is set to begin on February 9 at 11 p.m. (KST) following Valid Love.
