In fact, a representative for “Prime Minister And I” told Sports Seoul, “The atmosphere on the set of the drama is hardly any different than it was before. YoonA shows the same focus toward the drama as before. Since relationships are a personal thing, the other actors or staff appear to not be paying any attention to it.”
News of YoonA and Lee Seung Gi’s relationship went public on January 1. Since then, public interest towards YoonA’s drama, “Prime Minister And I” has increased. There had also been some concerns about the news negatively affecting the drama’s effort to create a romantic line between YoonA and the Prime Minister. Some were especially concerned with viewership ratings, since the “Prime Minister And I” was airing its 8th episode now out of 17 total episodes.
The same representative for “Prime Minister And I” stated, “We believe that the public will be able to differentiate between reality and dramas. And because of that, we’re able to continue filming without any difficulties.”
The “Prime Minister And I” will air its final episode on February 4.
