Watch I Need Romance

I Need Romance is a Korean drama that takes an in-depth look at the love lives of modern Korean women in their thirties. The show follows the stories and romances of three main characters as they try to maintain their careers, deal with their families and find love.

Park Seo-yeon, played by Choi Yeo-jin, is trying to run a clothing store called Y Style. Because her store is online, Seo-yeon has a flexible schedule, and often takes time to do whatever she wants, including going out to clubs or to dinner with her friends. Seo-yeon often seems to have a carefree lifestyle, but she is incredibly driven when it comes to pursuing the man she is interested in.

Sun Woo In Young, played by Jo Yeo-jeong, is a hard working concierge at a prestigious hotel. She is also very much in love with her boyfriend. However, In Young and her boyfriend have been dating for ten years. In Young keeps expecting her boyfriend to propose to her, but it is now beginning to seem like that may never happen, and In Young is feeling restless. Things become even more complicated when In Young spontaneously kisses one of her co-workers at a night club.

On the outside, the third main character, Kang Hyun-joo, played by the actress Choi Song-hyeon, appears to be a determined and somewhat unapproachable woman. She is a divorce lawyer and is very focused on her career. However, in reality, Hyun-joo is a sweet woman with a gentle personality. What Hyun-joo does in life is often dictated to her by her controlling mother. Hyun-joo is not lucky in love, either. Her boyfriend of three years recently left her at the altar.

As the story progresses, the three women find that not everything in life works the way they expected. New friends, career changes and the ups and downs of romance mean that their days are always filled with excitement and drama.
