ICYMI, Crash Landing On You's Lee Shin Young has a new K-drama called How To Buy A Friend! The show, which is Shin Young's debut lead role, will reportedly have eight episodes.

According to Soompi, the drama is based on a webtoon of the same name and tells the story of ~ordinary~ high school student Park Chan Hong (Lee Shin Young). He starts a "contractual friendship" with the school's "legendary fighter" Heo Don Hyuk (Shin Seung Ho) because of a poem he writes. The show also stars Kim So Hye as Chan Hong's first love Uhm Se Yoon.

In the character teaser for Park Chan Hong, which was released on March 19, we see him being threatened by Heo Don Hyuk! According to a translation by Soompi, Don Hyuk asks Chan Hong if he killed a girl named Shin Seo Jung, his girlfriend. The teaser ends with Chan Hong thinking: "I shouldn't have written that damn poem."
