On September 17, Kakao TV officially announced that the two idols’ upcoming drama “Jinx” (literal title) will premiere on October 6 at 9 a.m. KST.
“Jinx” is a fantasy romance drama starring Chani as Kyu Han, a seemingly ordinary student who is cursed with an unlucky jinx. Every time he sneezes, things go exactly the opposite of what he hopes, forcing him into all sorts of unfortunate situations in his daily life. However, despite his supernatural bad luck, he still romantically chooses to pursue his one-sided crush, believing that if he just tries his hardest, there’s nothing he can’t achieve.
Chani remarked, “Although Kyu Han is always experiencing unpredictable bad luck, he never loses his sincerity and his perseverance. He’s a character that will warm viewers’ hearts, to the extent where I found healing in playing the role. Because he’s a character with many charms, I had a lot of fun playing him, and I hope that viewers will enjoy watching [him in the drama] as well.”
Meanwhile, Eunseo will star as Se Kyung, Kyu Han’s beautiful but seemingly frosty co-worker who is brusque with her words and actions. Although she seems aloof and uninterested in romance, Se Kyung has a hidden soft side and is secretly struggling with painful memories.
Eunseo commented, “Because the cast and crew all filmed together in a convivial, friendly environment, I think viewers will be able to enjoy watching the drama as well. Please show a lot of interest in ‘Jinx,’ which will premiere on October 6.”
Kakao TV also released two romantic posters for “Jinx,” which it describes as a “relatable fantasy romance.” One of the posters features Chani and Eunseo holding hands on a swing set, while the other captures them looking at each other as the caption reads, “Will we be able to love?”
After premiering on October 6 at 9 a.m. KST, “Jinx” will air every Wednesday and Saturday through Kakao TV.
