Radio Romance is set to air this January 29, 2018, on KBS2’s Mondays and Tuesdays 22:00 (KST), starring actor Yoon Doo Joon and actress  Kim So Hyun.

The story will flow this way: Song Geu-Rim (Kim So Hyun) works as a radio program writer. Her mother is blind, and she listens to the radio frequently with her mother. This led her to become a radio program writer, but she is not exactly talented in writing. Now, the radio program that she works on is facing cancellation. Song Geu-Rim succeeds in casting top actor Ji Soo-Ho (Yoon Doo Joon) who can do acting without the script. The drama will be about them working on a script-free live broadcast radio show together.

Netizens have mixed reaction about this drama because of the age gap of the lead stars. Watch the teaser here.
