The official posters for KBS’s new rom-com, “Cantabile Tomorrow,” were released on Monday, showing the resemblance between the lead actor Joo Won and the original character from a Japanese graphic novel.

In the posters, Joo Won is dressed up in a black tuxedo and white shirt, a trademark outfit for the maestro of an orchestra. The actor perfectly matches the original character Shinyichi Chiaki from the Japanese graphic novel “Nodame Cantabile” by Tomoko Ninomiya.

The Korean heartthrob plays the lead character Cha Yoo-jin, a talented but extremely self-centered aspiring maestro, who ultimately falls in love with the eccentric piano student Seol Nae-il.

The Monday-Tuesday drama is scheduled to launch in October.
