The cast of Song Hye Kyo and Park Bo Gum's new drama met up for their first official script reading. The drama, previously titled Boyfriend, is now called Encounter.
Hye Kyo will play Cha Soo Hyun, a politician's daughter who has never been able to lead her own life. She is forced into an arranged marriage with the heir of a wealthy businessman, which eventually ends in divorce. Soo Hyun meets Kim Jin Hyuk (Bo Gum), who the actor describes as "youthful and refreshing like a green grape."
According to the cast and crew, real-life friends Hye Kyo and Bo Gum had a lot of chemistry. Impressed by the cast, director Park Shin Woo remarked: "It makes me think that I really need to do a good job. I will work hard so that, once [Encounter] is over, it'll be a drama that we can be even more proud of."
Encounter is set to air in November 2018!
