Uhm Tae Woong and Kim Ok Bin play the star-crossed lovers from enemy households. Since the two actors are to play a tragic couple, the stills show them holding hands but having sad and solemn facial expressions.
Uhm Tae Woong and Kim Ok Bin expressed their excitement about working together for the first time in this drama. Uhm Tae Woong commented, “While I was reading about my character in the synopsis, I thought about Kim Ok Bin. I thought that she would go very well with the character. So when I heard she was cast, I was very surprised.”
Kim Ok Bin also stated, “I’m very excited to be acting alongside Uhm Tae Woong, who is a great actor and very handsome. I met him for the first time through this drama but for some reason, it didn’t feel unfamiliar,” and “I felt a bit pressured because this is my first drama in a while but I think I will be able to rely on Uhm Tae Woong a lot.”
“Sword and Flower” will first air on July 3 after “Heaven’s Mandate” ends.
