Starring NCT singer Doyoung and actress Han Ji-hyo, the new series will centre itself around Seo Hee-soo (Han), who comes across a magical notebook that can can make one fall in love with another person for a month, and uses its powers to embark on a brief one-month romance.
Meanwhile, her close friend, Jung Si-ho (Doyoung), is the only person apart from Hee-soo to know about the notebook’s powers, and becomes worried about her increasing reliance on it.
The new clip offers insight into Hee-soo’s overuse of the notebook in her love life, as she gets into new romantic relationships every month. It doesn’t go unnoticed by Si-ho, who begins worrying about her as he confronts Hee-soo: “Will you be okay? Are you able to date someone with no emotions?”
Despite Hee-soo’s initial disregard for Si-ho’s warnings, she begins to slowly realise the truth to his words, as she ponders about the reality of who exactly she wishes to be loved by, as imagery of Si-ho flashes by. Dear X Who Doesn’t Love Me is set to premiere exclusive on South Korean streaming service TVING on July 14.
