[HanCinema's News] Lee Jong-suk Fuses Bromance and Melodrama into "Romance Is a Bonus Book"

2019/02/17 | 678 views | Permalink

Lee Jong-suk has been earning attention for his work on "Romance is a Bonus Book" and the drama's popularity has been catching. Lee Jong-suk has been nicknamed "chemistry fairy" by online fans for his work.

"Romance is a Bonus Book" is about Lee Jong-suk's work as an editor at a publishing company. One way or another, he becomes critical to various romances around the office, leading to his designation as "keyman" or "chemistry man". The term is a form of slang English used in spoken Korean.

In the last episode, Mister Bong (played by Jo Han-cheol-I) relied on Lee Jong-suk's sunny disposition to get him through grief. Though Mister Bong comes off as a very cold and logical man, he came to show a brighter warmer side of himself to subordinates at the office. This storyline has contained strong elements both of melodrama in terms of the conflict as well as bromance toward the resolution.

Across all platforms "Romance is a Bonus Book" maintained an average viewership rating of 5.4% and was eighth place in its timeslot over the weekend.
