Kang Tae-oh announces new collaboration with Lee Sun-bin in drama 'Potato Research Institute'
Actors Lee Sun-bin and Kang Tae-oh present a warm and fluffy romantic comedy. The two were born in 1994 and are the same age.

tvN's new drama 'Potato Research Institute' has confirmed the casting of Lee Sun-bin and Kang Tae-oh. 'Potato Research Institute' is a romantic comedy set in a potato research center in a mountain valley. The romance between two polar opposites, grilled, fried and boiled, causes laughter and excitement. Director Kang Il-soo and writer Kim Ho-soo, who directed 'Rookie Historian Goo Hae-ryeong' and 'Solomon's Perjury', are coming together again.

Sunbin Lee plays the role of Kim Mi-kyung, a researcher who is crazy about potatoes. At first glance, easy-going Kim Mi-kyung seems like an unemployed person in the neighborhood, but when you get to know her, she is a 12-year-old office worker who is serious about potato research. He cultivated a life as simple and pure as a potato, but encounters upheaval when he meets So Baek-ho (played by Kang Tae-oh), who stimulates his fighting skills. Sunbin Lee expressed her determination, saying, "I'm really happy and happy to be able to work with a tvN drama after a long time. I'm excited to show a new side of me to the viewers. I'll prepare hard and show a good side of myself."

Attention is also drawn to the fact that this is Kang Tae-oh's first comeback after being discharged from the military. The role he plays, 'So Baek-ho', has a fatal charm. Although he has a bright smile, he is actually a merciless capitalist grim reaper. One day, he suddenly appears at the Mountain Valley Potato Research Institute and sparks constantly fly with assistant manager Kim Mi-kyung (played by Lee Sun-bin).

He said, "I'm a little nervous because it's my first work after being discharged from the military, but I'm very excited to be able to meet my fans with a good work. I'll film as hard and have fun as you have waited, so please show a lot of interest and anticipation for 'Potato Research Institute.'" reported. This raises curiosity about what new side he will show as he received great love as the 'nation's disgusting man' in the drama 'Weird Lawyer Woo Young-woo', which created a syndrome.

tvN's new drama 'Potato Research Institute' will be broadcast in the first half of 2025.
