Gong Hyo Jin And Lee Min Ho’s New Space Romance Drama Finishes Filming
On April 19, the production team of “Ask the Stars” (working title, also known as “Where the Stars Gossip”) shared that filming for the drama was completed on April 12 and that they are preparing for post-production.
“Ask the Stars” is a new romantic comedy about an astronaut and a tourist who meet and fall in love at a space station. The drama will be helmed by director Park Shin Woo of “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” and “Lovestruck in the City,” while the script will be penned by writer Seo Sook Hyang, who is known for hits like “Don’t Dare to Dream” (“Jealousy Incarnate”) and “Pasta.” Lee Min Ho will take on the role of gynecologist Gong Ryong who paid an astronomical amount of money to travel in space as a tourist. Gong Hyo Jin will play top astronaut captain Eve Kim, a perfectionist who does not tolerate any mistakes.
As the drama is set in space, a lot of VFX (Visual Effects) will be used in post-production work which is necessary to improve the quality of the drama. The production team remarked, “We are using various filming techniques to express the weightless state inside the spaceship, the grandeur of stars outside the space station, as well as the expansive scenery of the universe, so please look forward to seeing [the splendor].”
The production team added, “We are deeply grateful to all the actors and staff who worked hard day and night so that the filming could be completed safely. Thanks to Lee Min Ho and Gong Hyo Jin’s perfect chemistry, the filming went even more smoothly. Viewers will be immersed in the performance of the two actors like being sucked into a black hole.”
The release schedule and broadcast platform of “Ask the Stars” are yet to be decided. Stay tuned for more updates!
