Song Hye Kyo And Jang Ki Yong’s New Drama To Pre-Record Press Conference Due To His Military Enlistment
SBS’s upcoming drama “Now, We Are Breaking Up” (literal translation) will be pre-recording its press conference ahead of Jang Ki Yong’s enlistment.
“Now, We Are Breaking Up” is a new romance drama starring Song Hye Kyo, Jang Ki Yong, EXO‘s Sehun, Girl’s Day’s Yura, and more. Last month, Jang Ki Yong’s agency YG Entertainment confirmed that the actor would be enlisting in the military on August 23, a few months before the drama’s premiere in November.
On August 11, the drama’s producers officially announced, “We will be pre-recording the press conference in advance and then releasing it before the drama begins airing.”
While many dramas and films have recently opted to livestream their press conferences online due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing requirements, it is unusual for a Korean production to pre-record its press conference in advance.
“Because male lead Jang Ki Yong’s military enlistment date was suddenly set for mid-August, we inevitably had to pre-record our press conference,” explained the producers. “Since our drama belongs to the emotional romance genre, we decided that it was especially important to show the leads’ relationship and chemistry [during the press conference]. Therefore, instead of holding the press conference without actor Jang Ki Yong, we decided to greet the press a bit early, with everyone present.”
“Now, We Are Breaking Up” is currently slated to premiere in November.
