More information is out on the upcoming drama, Orange Marmalade (I can’t be the only one out there who keeps trying to call it Orange Caramel) and while I’m not super pleased with the idol-actress heroine (Seolhyun from AOA), I continue to get more and more excited about it. Like really excited. As in, I’m not entirely certain the last time I’ve looked forward to a drama like this. Especially not over a high school drama.
I like the rest of the casting as I do love me some CNBlue boys and a weekly dosage of Jonghyun will do nicely. Why do I not care that he’s an idol actor and Seolhyun is? What can I say? I’m fickle and boy biased like that.
Umm…. that’s a lie. I don’t mind idol actors, but I’d just like them to work up to lead roles. And since the hero on this drama is Yeo Jin Gu one of the most exceptional young actors out there, I worry about her being able to keep up.
Then there’s the other thing. Since writing the last post on this drama, I’ve been reading the webtoon and I like it, I mean I really like it. It’s cute, and fun and the characters are really endearing. Of course I’m only 10 episodes in so that could change (considering they just cast Song Jung Ho from Answer Me 1997 as a character I haven’t even met yet), but for now, despite any casting they go with, I’m totally going to watch this drama. I’m probably may even simulcast it. Yes, me the staunch non-simulcast-er.
And if you want to read the webtoon, you can read it fully subbed here. When you do, let me know what you think! Also–tell me who you think should play the aunt? She is such a cool character and I hope they cast her well.
