He continued, “And the people in North Korea already knew who IU was even before the drama.”
The production company of the drama,“A Story,” stated, “The actors and actresses are in awe at the news that this drama is popular in North Korea. They are working even harder now. We think that IU’s acting skill and the touching storyline are the reasons why people in North Korea like this drama.”
