Soul Mate is written and directed by Shunki Hashizume. According to Netflix’s announcement, the drama will narrate a love story spanning over ten years and across various cities, including Berlin, Seoul, and Tokyo. Hayato Isomura, who previously garnered attention in Alice in Borderland Season 2 (2022), will play Ryu, a man who left everything behind in Japan. Taecyeon’s character, Yohan, is a boxer who struggles with his inner wounds.

The plot thickens when Yohan accidentally saves Ryu’s life abroad. This encounter provides an opportunity for both characters to change each other’s lives forever, slowly learning the meaning of life and love.

As someone who appreciates the depth and nuances in drama series, I am genuinely excited about Soul Mate. Taecyeon’s dedication to his roles has always been commendable, and his willingness to take on challenging characters speaks volumes about his growth as an actor. Pairing him with Hayato Isomura, another talented actor, promises a dynamic and heartfelt performance.

The storyline spanning different cities and over a decade provides a rich tapestry for exploring complex emotions and relationships. The character development, combined with the beautiful backdrops of Berlin, Seoul, and Tokyo, sets the stage for a visually and emotionally engaging series.

In conclusion, Soul Mate is shaping up to be a must-watch drama. With Taecyeon and Hayato Isomura bringing their characters to life, fans can look forward to a story that not only entertains but also touches the heart.
