Netflix has confirmed June 4, 2021 as the worldwide release date for new romance film Sweet & Sour. The film depicts a realistic tale of modern romance following three young people. The seemingly contradictory title alludes not only to the first sugary stages of love but also to its bitter end, as will surely come with the passage of time. The cast of Sweet & Sour includes rising stars Jang Ki-yong, Chae Soo-bin and Jung Soo-jung.
Jang Ki-yong, whose steady rise to fame across genres began with roles in Search WWW, The Bad Guys: Reign of Chaos and this May’s My Roommate is a Gumiho, portrays very “real guy” boyfriend Jang Hyeok. His unfiltered portrayal of the realistic boyfriend will quicken viewers’ pulse with infatuation and rage as he gradually transforms from a sweet guy, in the beginning of the relationship, to an unresponsive one.
Jang Hyeok’s lovely girlfriend Da-eun is played by Chae Soo-bin, who established herself as a major next-gen rom-com star through roles in I'm Not a Robot, Where Stars Land and A Piece of Your Mind. Many young viewers will relate to her character Da-eun, who is frustrated with both her job as a nurse and her love life.
Bo-yeong, the woman whom Jang Hyeok meets through his job assignment with his big name corporate employer, is played by Jung Soo-jung. Demonstrating a different kind of charm than her usual chic image, Jung shapes Bo-yeong into an interesting character in a love-hate relationship with Jang Hyeok while they collaborate and compete for the same permanent position at the corporation.
Director Lee Kae-byeok’s fresh and funny take on this realistic love story is further enhanced by the chemistry among actors Jang Ki-yong, Chae Soo-bin and Jung Soo-jung. Sweet and Sour will be released worldwide on June 4th, only on Netflix.
