It has been confirmed that BIGBANG’s T.O.P and Japanese actress Juri Ueno will be starring alongside one another in a new drama. The drama is a Korean-Japanese co-production, organized by CJ E&M and AMUSE Inc.
According to a representative of CJ E&M on March 31, the upcoming drama will follow the story of two people who live completely different lives—a Korean man, Woo Hyun, and a Japanese woman, Haruka. The storyline will focus on the process of overcoming the pain of these two characters’ first loves and finding a new love.
T.O.P is set to play the lead male role of Woo Hyun, a man who holds the pain of his first love yet still wants to believe in love, while Juri Ueno will be taking on the female lead role of Haruka, a woman who still wants a lot of answers when it comes to love.
The director of this Korean-Japanese co-produced project, Lee Seung Hoon, shared, “This project has finally entered production after going through nearly a year of planning. I am very happy to be able to work with T.O.P and Juri Ueno, as we had them in mind for the leading male and female roles since the planning stages. We will make a fun production that many people will be able to enjoy.”
