Woop! The uber popular youth romance A Love So Beautiful won the hearts of many when it first premiered back in 2017 and now thanks to the love it received from international viewers on Netflix, it appears the show will also be getting its very own Kdrama version slated to be produced by Kakao M. The original web drama which starred then rookies Shen Yue and Hu Yitian had viewers rooting for the happily ever after of longtime neighbours Chen Xiao Xi and Jiang Chen as the story takes us through the gradual progression of the pair’s relationship blossoming from the awkward first stages of young love into adulthood.
As for the potential names of actors being tossed around for the series’ lineup, it has been rumoured that actress So Ju Yeon who was most recently seen as Kim Min Jae’s bubbly love interest in the Korean hit drama Dr. Romantic 2 has been tapped to play Shen Yue’s effervescent and easy going Chen Xiao Xi. Meanwhile Korean media has also reported that Kim Yo Han who debuted as part of the now defunct eleven member group X1 from the survival show Produce 101, is also in talks to play the introverted character of Jiang Chen in the Korean version.
