Written by Lee Ji-min and brought to life under the direction of Park Beom-soo, ‘Single in Seoul‘ follows the tale of an editor and a writer thrust together by fate, despite their initial differences.

At the center of the story is Park Yeong-ho (Lee Dong-wook), an instructor and influencer who takes pride in his single lifestyle, attributing his success to the dedication he poured into himself after a past breakup.
