What is Yang Se Jong, the adorable leading man from Temperature of Love, up to these days? After his fantastic break-out year in 2017, he is coming back in an unusual romantic drama. The surprising twist is that he is practically unrecognizable when you first see him again. You'll have to see these photos to believe it!

Yang Se Jong emerged from a unknown rookie without an acting portfolio to starring in four major dramas within a span of one year.

He first impressed us as a handsome and aloof doctor in Doctor Romantic, then as the younger version of leading man Song Seung Hun in the historical romance drama Saimdang: Light's Dairy. He proceeded to take on a challenging triple-role in the suspenseful sci-fi thriller Duel, before enticing our romantic hearts as a gourmet chef in Temperature of Love.

He will now return in Thirty But Seventeen, a new romantic drama which co-stars Shin Hye Sun (Stranger), whose 17-year-old character wakes up from a long coma 13 years later.

The story sounds interesting by itself already, but what's even more intriguing is Yang Se Jong's character.

Did you recognize him?

And, yes, it's supposed to be a romantic drama. We can't help but wonder how the two characters will meet and fall for each other.

When questioned about his new role choice, Yang Se Jong replied:

“I wanted to show a unique and comical side of myself that I haven’t been able to show yet in my previous works. I’m working hard to create a fresh and fun story, but I’m a little worried about how people will take the dramatic transformation I go under for the role. I’m excited though, as it’s a chance to show a new side to myself. I’m having fun on set, so please give our drama your interest and support.”

Is there any doubt that his fans will give him all the support and watch his new drama?

And now, the best news is that Thirty But Seventeen will premier on DramaFever, starting July 23.
