On November 21, Song Hye Kyo, Park Bo Gum and director Park Shin Woo attended the upcoming tvN drama “Boyfriend” press conference.
“Boyfriend” marks the highly anticipated comeback dramas of both hallyu actors Song Hye Kyo and Park Bo Gum. Both actors have enjoyed a great 2016, Park Bo Gum starring in the immensely popular historical drama “Moonlight Drawn By Clouds” while Song Hye Kyo starred in “Descendants Of The Sun.”
Fans have been waiting for their comebacks and two years later they were cast in the same drama. They’re both acquaintances since Song Joong Ki is Song Hye Kyo’s husband and Park Bo Gum’s best friend and sunbae.
During the press conference, Song Hye Kyo shared that she wasn’t so close to Park Bo Gum as many had expected, she said,
“People think we’re very close but to be honest, we didn’t know each other well before meeting in ‘Boyfriend.’ He is younger than me but I still had difficulty approaching him.
I talked a lot with the director and Bo Gum on set, we had no disagreements in each conversation, we were always on the same page.
Now I think we’re much closer after filming together.”
Park Bo Gum also expressed his gratitude to Song Hye Kyo, he said,
“It was an honor to work with Song Hye Kyo, she takes good care of me.”
About the casting controversy that surrounded the drama, director Park Shin Woo said that viewers prejudice will disappear when they watch the show, he added,
“Its not a story about their age difference but rather about two people who have feelings for each other despite their various difference which dissolve after they meet.”
Song Hye Kyo was asked about how her husband felt about her upcoming drama with Park Bo Gum, she said,
“He said to work hard and that he would enjoy watching the drama.”
“Boyfriend” will air its first episode on November 28 taking over “The Smile Has Left Your Eyes” time slot.
