EXO’s D.O. Gazes At Nam Ji Hyun Under Cherry Blossoms In “100 Days My Prince”
tvN’s new romantic comedy tells the story of Lee Yool (EXO’s D.O.), a perfect crown prince-turned-nobody Won Deuk. Nam Ji Hyun has been cast as Hong Sim, Joseon’s oldest unmarried woman who ends up meeting Lee Yool. The drama will be set in a fictional Joseon era.
With a handsome appearance and excelling in both literary and martial arts, Lee Yool is a perfectionist crown prince who is not liked by many at the royal palace and a symbol of “no communication.” Hong Sim, the oldest unmarried woman in town, carries herself with intelligence and the strongest will. She is ordered to enter a marriage in order to alleviate a bitter drought, but begins an unwanted relationship with Won Deuk, the useless crown prince who has lost his memories, instead.
In the photos, Lee Yool and Hong Sim are dressed as a scholar and noble woman, instead of their real identities as a perfectionist crown prince and oldest unmarried widow in Joseon. Hong Sim gazes with gentle eyes towards the cherry blossom flowers with a smile on her face, while Yool stares only at her. They do not meet or exchange any words, but just by standing under the cherry blossoms together they showcase their relationship.
Previously, two teasers were released for the drama that revealed more about the two character’s 100-day relationship.
Additionally, tvN released a behind-the-scenes video of the cast of the drama holding their first script reading and lead actors D.O. and Nam Ji Hyun expressed their feelings of participating in the session.
D.O. commented, “I was nervous and excited, but after going through the script reading, I was able to have fun completing it,” while Nam Ji Hyun revealed that although she was initially nervous about the script reading session held with the rest of the cast, she was now excited after seeing her seniors do so well. The cast exchanged laughs after hearing the humorous lines from the script and was able to end the session joyfully.
