Fans have loved seeing Youngjae, the member of K-pop boy group GOT7, on multiple variety shows with his members or as a solo artist. Ahgases are aware also of the fact that it had been the singer's long-time dream to act and it seems like his exit from the label JYP Entertainment is helping it. After all seven members of the group decided against renewing their contracts with JYP back in 2020, GOT7's Youngjae landed his first acting role.


Back in June, Youngjae landed his first acting role in the Netflix Korean sitcom 'So Not Worth It' where he played a side role. Youngjae played the character of Sam, the son of the president of an Australian tteokbokki global food chain. Following that, Youngjae went back to what he does best and released his first solo album as ARS (his pseudonym) titled 'Color from ARS' which was a global success. Back in November, Youngjae was confirmed to play his first lead role in the upcoming Kakao TV drama, 'Love and Wish' which is based on the webtoon of the same name. 'Love & Wish' is scheduled to be released as a movie and a short drama through domestic and overseas OTT platforms in December.

According to the synopsis of the show, the drama focuses on the story of Son Da-eun played by Choi Ye Bin who is a 17-year-old. She is the youngest of three sisters and since she was quite young, she and her sisters would spend their time reading romance-themed comics and novels. Son Da-eun would spend her nights dreaming of finding true love while her family suddenly moved to Seoul. She finds herself living next door to a handsome high schooler named Kim Seung-hyu played by GOT7’s Choi Young-jae (Youngjae).


The character of Seung-hyu is charming and attractive and Da-eun feels that perhaps he might be her first true love. She soon discovers that Kim Seung-hyu is her classmate and hopes that all that she dreamt about would eventually fall into place. With everything in place, she starts talking to Seung-hyu and soon finds out that he has been a victim of school bullying in the past that has left him emotionally vulnerable. The show follows the journey of these two teenagers and deals with the question: Can love conquer all, or will the demons of the past derail their fledgling romance?



In the short trailer that was released for the show, the character of Son Da-eun, the main lead of the show appears to be shocked as she first sees her next-door neighbor, Seung-hyu outside school. From the outset, she is inclined to tell him how she feels about him but has to hold back because Seung-hyu seems to be hiding a secret from her. The trailer also shows the character of Nam Yoo-il who reveals a secret to Da-eun that has the potential to make or break her future with Seung-hyu.
