Shim Eun Kyung Meets “Nodame Cantabile” Star Ueno Juri

Actress Shim Eun Kyung has come face to face with Japanese actress Ueno Juri ahead of the release of forthcoming KBS2 drama “Tomorrow Cantabile.” The drama is based on a series of Japanese manga novels called “Nodame Cantabile,” which tells the tale of a quixotic young pianist who falls in love with a budding composer.

The manga series spawned a hit television drama adaptation in Japan, with Unero Juri playing the title role of Nodame. Shim Eun Kyung will be playing the role of Seol Nae Il, a character based on Nodame, in the new KBS2 series.

The two stars had the chance to meet as part of the 10th Anniversary Korea-Japan Festival 2014 in Seoul on September 14, and posed for a photograph in front of a large white piano. The Japanese star explained that she would be sending her Korean counterpart her support as shooting on the series continues.

Earlier this week, Group 8, the company that is responsible for producing the drama, released still pictures taken from a scene shot outdoors, as well as promotional shots of Shim Eun Kyung and male lead Joo Won.
