Kim Yoo Jung and Ahn Hyo Seop Confirmed As Lead For JTBC’s Upcoming Drama


Kim Yoo Jung and Ahn Hyo Seop has been confirmed as the lead in JTBC’s upcoming drama “Clean With Passion For Now”.

“Clean With Passion For Now” is based on a popular webtoon about Jang Sun Kyul (Ahn Hyo Seop), who has wealth and good looks, but suffers from severe mysophobia. Jang Sun Kyul (Ahn Hyo Seop) is obsessed with cleaning and even owns his own cleaning company. However, when he meets a carefree and untidy girl named Gil Oh Sol (Kim Yoo Jung) after she enters his company as a new employee, they fall in love and change each other under rather bizarre circumstances.

Gil Oh Sol (Kim Yoo Jung) has worked all sorts of part-time jobs while striving for a full-time job and does not have the luxury to be clean or date. Gil Oh Sol (Kim Yoo Jung) gave up on being neat after facing the tough reality of the world, and is known for always wearing her trademark tracksuit.

A source from the drama commented, “We have casted Ahn Hyo Seop as Sun Kyul after several rounds of meetings. While he faced fierce competition at the auditions, he is a rookie who stood out for his understanding of the character as well as his appearance, which seems to have popped out from the webtoon into reality.”

“Clean With Passion For Now” marks Kim Yoo Jung’s drama comeback after two years, and also her first role since becoming an adult. Kim Yoo Jung shared her reasons for choosing the role, saying, “I was drawn to the drama as soon as I read the script because the subject is so unique. I want to portray the fresh and bright Oh Sol’s optimistic energy well, in addition to the fresh atmosphere that encompasses the drama itself.”

The actress added, “Through this production, I want heal the viewers who are weary and tired, so their hearts can become clean and shiny again. I will prepare hard, so please look forward to it.”

“Clean With Passion For Now” will broadcast its first episode on JTBC in April.
