Jung Woo Sung Confirmed To Star In His First Drama In 10 Years With Shin Hyun Been
On September 22, STUDIO & NEW announced that Jung Woo Sung and Shin Hyun Been will be starring in the new romance drama titled “Tell Me That You Love Me” (literal title) together.
“Tell Me That You Love Me” is based on the romance drama of the same name which aired on TBS in Japan in 1995 and swept the awards for Best Picture, Best Screenplay, Best Actor, Best Actress, and more at Japan’s The Television Drama Academy Awards.
Jung Woo Sung will take on the role of Cha Jin Woo, a hearing-impaired person who feels freedom in his own quiet world and who is easygoing despite the prejudice against him. Shin Hyun Been will play Jung Mo Eun who has self-respect as she proudly fulfills her dreams and love. In addition to the two star actors, the drama also raises anticipation with the collaboration between screenwriter Kim Min Jung, who wrote “Love in the Moonlight” and “The Sound of Magic,” and director Kim Yoon Jin, who directed “Our Beloved Summer.”
Jung Woo Sung is returning to the small screen after almost 10 years since his last drama “Padam Padam,” which aired from 2011 to 2012. In 2020, Jung Woo Sung filled in for Bae Sung Woo‘s role in “Delayed Justice” after the actor stepped down toward the end of the drama, but this is his first official drama comeback in 10 years.
Filming will start at the end of this year, but the broadcast schedule is still under discussion. Stay tuned for more updates!
