When it comes to romantic leads, South Korean actor, Jung Hae-In is just about the perfect one. With his boyish good looks and reserved demeanour, the 31-year-old star has been the leading man in some of the most popularity romantic K-dramas in recent times such as Something In The Rain and One Spring Night. Fans of Jung will be delighted to hear that he will be back on the small screen very soon with a brand new TV series for tvN. Titled A Piece of Your Mind, the drama revolves around an unrequited love.

Jung plays Ha-Won, an introverted and gentle-spirited AI programmer who has been harbouring an unrequited love all these years. So much so that he eventually resigns to a life of loneliness, loving from afar. Enter Han Seo-Woo (played by I Am Not a Robot‘s Chae Soo-Bin), a classical sound engineer who falls for the kind-hearted Ha-Won and his passionate yet unrequited love.
From the official posters that were released, the Korean drama definitely gives off a Winter Sonata-esque vibe with Jung dressed in all black in the snow. The trailer enforced this aura thanks to the late-night-radio narration, sentimental piano music and warm, hazy filter. This looks to be a sappy tearjerker, ladies and gents! So prepare the tissues.
Jung has been on a roll lately and has been working on project after project since his big break in the tvN’s Prison Playbook. Soon after, Jung has been consistently landing lead roles opposite some of the biggest female stars such as Son Ye-Jin and Han Ji-Min. We certainly hope that Jung will venture out to do different roles. But for now, we are content with Jung’s perfect portrayal of a man in love (slash) boy-next-door in these irresistible romance dramas.
A Piece of Mind is set to premiere 23 March 2020 on tvN with English Subs on Viki.
