Sung Hoon and Im Soo Hyang will grow closer together now after working on their third drama, Woori The Virgin.

Both Sung Hoon and Im Soo Hyang found themselves together in a new drama after they were tapped to lead the remake of the American show Jane the Virgin.

In the drama, Im Soo Hyang plays the role of Oh Woo Ri while Sung Hoon stars as Raphael. The actor’s character is a hopeless romantic CEO who wants to meet the woman who can give him the love and happiness he has been craving and looking for.

Woori The Virgin is their third project together. They previously worked in the drama New Tales of Gisaeng in 2011 before reuniting five years later in Five Enough.

With that, they are expected to present different but more powerful chemistry to the viewers.
