Joo Sang Wook undergoes a nerd makeover for new drama 'Sly and Single Again'
Joo Sang Wook and Lee Min Jung’s new romantic comedy drama, Sly and Single Again, has revealed behind the scenes stills that show each character’s personality. Joo Sang Wook will show another side of his acting in this drama. He transforms into a nerd who is studying for a technology examination before getting married to Na Ae Ra (Lee Min Jung), which is a totally different character than we've ever seen him as before.
In the disclosed pictures, Joo Sang Wook is an untidy test-taker. The actor usually takes on roles as men who are cynical, smart and rational with a cold heart, but this time he will be a credulous and sensitive man in the beginning of the drama.
Joo Sang Wook showed up to the drama set with well-combed, rounded hair and thick black horn-rimmed glasses. It was said that no one recognized Joo Sang Wook because of his perfect makeover, and staff members were looking around for him confusedly. After Joo Sang Wook received the scripts, he showed his passion to become Cha Jung Woo by trying on various wigs and eye glasses and asking questions of hair stylists.
This drama’s first shooting was for a scene where Lee Min Jung and Joo Sang Wook are first dating. Lee Min Jung is just sitting on a duck boat and enjoying the Han River’s scenery while Joo Sang Wook presses down the pedals, sweating it out as he drives the boat alone. This scene gives us a window into their past relationship. In the present, they are divorced, but this duck scene shows their happy moments.
Watch exes duke it out and fall back in love in the comedic medical drama Emergency Couple.
Sly and Single Again is a romantic comedy drama about a divorcee, Na Ae Ra (Lee Min Jung)’s tactics to chase her ex-husband, Cha Jung Woo (Joo Sang Wook), who becomes rich after their divorce.
