The KBS TV drama "Sorry, I Love You" (2004) starring So Ji-sub and Lim Soo-jung will begin airing on a Japanese terrestrial TV network on May 17.
According to So’s agency, BOF, "Sorry, I Love You" will air on TV Tokyo every week from Monday to Thursday at 12:30 a.m., starting from the 17th.
From May 18, weekly portions of the drama episodes will be rerun every Thursday at 2:30 a.m.
An official from BOF said, "Since TV Tokyo broadcasted a special program introducing the drama on May 6, Japanese fans have expressed great interest in it on So Ji-sub’s homepage in Japan. We expect that a national-scale fan club for So will be organized in Japan sooner or later."
"Sorry, I Love You" portrays a tragic love story between So, who plays an adopted child, and Lim. The drama has attracted great popularity from a wide-ranging group of fans for its unique cinematography.
An official from KBS said, "’Sorry, I Love You’ has already been exported to six regions — China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Singapore and the Philippines. The drama has won a favorable response from those regions, except for China, where it has not been broadcast yet."
