It was revealed that Lee Jong Suk took part in the first filming for the drama on April 15. Lead actress Shin Hye Sun was not present as filming centered around the actor as he worked with other cast members. Though the drama is mostly centered around the two leads, other cast members will be making notable, special appearances.
“Death Song” is a two-part series about the tragic love story between famous soprano Yun Sim Deok (played by Shin Hye Sun) and genius playwright Kim Woo Jin (played by Lee Jong Suk). Yun Sim Deok, a real-life soprano, released a song of the same name in 1926. The drama will also feature Kim Woo Jin’s lesser known works to the public.
The drama is slated to air in the latter half of the year.
