Song Hye Kyo Offered Role In Drama Which Park Bo Gum Is In Talks For
On May 28, it was reported that the two actors will be starring in the upcoming drama “Encounter” (formerly known as “Boyfriend”).
In response, Song Hye Kyo’s agency commented, “It is true that Song Hye Kyo has received the script for the drama ‘Encounter.’ However, she is just considering the offer and is not confirmed.”
Park Bo Gum’s agency also shared that he is still in talks as previously revealed.
“Encounter” is about a woman who seems like she has everything in the world and an ordinary man who’s the complete opposite and seems like he has nothing. The drama focuses on the question of whether it’s more difficult to give up wealth and honor or a normal lifestyle.
Song Hye Kyo has been offered the role of Cha Soo Hyun, whose father goes through various political roles such as being a member of the National Assembly, mayor of Seoul, and a political party representative. Her family forced her into marrying the son of a chaebol as soon as she graduated from college, but she eventually gets divorced.
Park Bo Gum is in talks to play Kim Jin Hyuk, an ordinary guy who works part-time jobs as he searches for a full-time occupation. With the money he saves up from his part-time jobs, he embarks on a trip abroad that he has been planning for a year.
“Encounter” is expected to air in the second half of 2018.
