Musical actor Min Woo Hyuk joined the cast yesterday, and it seems that he’s ready to become the best second male lead of 2018! Scroll down for synopsis, cast of characters (Seo Kang Joon, Lee Som, and more), and premiere date for this upcoming JTBC show.


When in love, we look through rose-colored glasses. The title, ‘The Third Charm,’ refers to this tendency to see things about one’s partner in a positive light. It takes us to On Joon Young (Seo Kang Joon) and Lee Young Jae’s (Lee Som) love life through four seasons, time lapsing 12 years: Spring of the year they turn 20, summer of the year they turn 27, fall and winter of their year 32. ‘The Third Charm’ will be produced by prolific director Pyo Min Soo of ‘Full House,’ ‘The World That They Live In,’ ‘Iris 2,’ ‘Ho Goo's Love,’ and ‘Producer.’ ‘The Third Charm’ is scheduled to premiere in September.
