"The Light in Your Eyes" is living up to its name with its cast and creators, and yours truly was surprised to see the names of the latter. The drama is being brought to us by PD Kim Seok-yoon, and writers Kim Su-jin and Lee Nam-gyoo, who have worked together on several projects between them, including "Awl" and "My Wife Is Having an Affair".
"The Light in Your Eyes" is about a woman who loses her time before getting to live it, and a man who wastes his own during the most brilliant time of his life. It is a 'time-out' fantasy romance between a man and a woman who live in the same time, yet in completely different times.
Attending the script reading were PD Kim Seok-yoon, writers Lee Nam-gyoo and Kim Soo-jin-III, as well as actors Kim Hye-ja, Han Ji-min, Nam Joo-hyuk, Son Ho-jun, Ahn Nae-sang, Lee Jung-eun, Kim Ga-eun, Song Sang-eun, Jung Young-sook,Woo Hyun and others.
In a potentially confusing, but funny twist, Kim Hye-ja plays Kim Hye-ja, whose body is in its 70s, but whose soul is 25. Han Ji-min is Hye-ja's younger version. Nam Joo-hyuk is Lee Joon-ha, the young man wasting his life away, while Son Ho-jun is Kim Yeong-soo, Hye-ja's older brother and a one-man content creator living aimlessly.
The supporting cast fills my heart with rainbows and unicorns as well. Kim Ga-eun and Song Sang-eun portay Hye-ja's best friends, while Ahn Nae-sang and Lee Jung-eun are Hye-ja's parents. Jung Young-sook and Woo Hyun are members of the 'Veteran Avengers', a public relations center for the elderly.
Now that I know the creators attached, I'm feeling really drawn to this, so I'll be keeping an eye on "The Light in Your Eyes" moving forward. The drama will premiere sometime in the first half of 2019 on jTBC.
