K-Drama to Watch: Cyrano Dating Agency

Make way for the latest drama from tvN’s oh! boy series, Cyrano Dating Agency! This Monday-Tuesday drama started this week and everyone has big anticipation!

After Flower Boy Ramyeon Shop, Shut Up Flower Boy Band, and Flower Boy Next Door (<my favorite), now we have flower boys (and an ahjussi) who work as cupids. I mean the work in a dating agency called Cyrano, trying to help their clients to find love using various (read: strange) ways and methods.

Let me introduce you to the main characters of this drama:

Seo Byung Hoon (Lee Jong Hyuk)
Seo Byung Hoon used to be a director and now has a lot of debt he needs to pay. He is now the leader of Cyrano Agency.
This is the one ahjussi that I just mentioned. Unlike the previous three dramas from this oh! boy series, this drama’s main character is not a boy, but a gentleman. I mean he’s one of the gentlemen from drama “A Gentleman’s Dignity”, Lee Jung Rok.

Gong Min Young (SNSD’s Choi Soo Young)
Gong Min Young worked in a dating agency but she’s fired because she matched two clients with different ‘classes’. She’s hired by Seo Byung Hoon and now works at Cyrano Agency.
The dramas from oh! boy series are all popular among girls. But because of Soo Young, I’m sure this drama will also be popular among boys (and ahjussis).

Cha Seung Won Pyo (Lee Chun Hee)
Cha Seung Pyo is the owner of a restaurant next to Cyrano Agency.
Clumsy Chun Hee, or you may know him as Chunderella from Family Outing, is back. His image in my mind is totally ruined because of Family Outing, and just looking at him makes me laugh. Maybe this drama will somehow restore his image? Keke.

This drama is a prequel of a Korean movie titled “Cyrano Agency” (2010). I haven’t watched the movie so I can’t give any comments or compare one with the other. I have only watched the first episode of this drama, and what actually attracts me is not the story nor the casts, but the music!

If you watch “A Gentleman’s Dignity”, “King of Dramas”, or maybe “7th Grade Civil Servant”, I’m sure you know big bAby driver, awesome indie musician from South Korea. I recognized her music and her sweet voice and I asked whether it’s really her, and she said yes. (follow her on twitter @BigBabyDriver and tumblr)

What I love about her songs is their ability to affect your mood, and unsurprisingly, her new song is also really nice but it’s not released yet, so let’s just wait. Meanwhile, watch the first episode of the drama and listen to the song played when Cha Seung Pyo (Lee Chun Hee) is cooking at his restaurant.

Ah, I'm also surprised seeing so many familiar faces appear as cameo for this drama. (Ji Jin Hee ahjussi! I miss you!)

I’m going to watch the second episode now so… Bye!


  1. Thank you so much! I've been looking for any clue to that lovely song since yesterday and finally I found it here.

  2. You're welcome!^^ Glad to hear that. You may also enjoy her other songs, they are all lovely :)
