[Drama 2018-2019] Encounter / Boyfriend, 남자친구

Recommended Posts

Thank you for creating the thread :)


I am not familiar with the writer and can’t make comments about this, but a successful drama depends on a great script, I believe. I was hoping for a comeback drama from Kyo as I missed her onscreen a lot and Honestly this pairing was not what  I was expecting and never imagined,  the age gap is not a joke, but I trust Kyo and Bogum, they are professional actors and it’s their job to make us to believe in this pairing and i think the script must be really interesting for them to decide in this project and really hope for the best to come.


i guess the filming should start very soon.







edit: it had been a while I made a post and I can’t seem to remember how to post a pic :blink:

Oh my...the drama has not even filming yet....but this thread is already here....thank you for the one who created this. Anything about kyo will make me interested...I am a BIG and loyal fan to her. Hopefully this drama will be great and successful...despite of all the fuss about their age gap and Park Bo Gum being a close friend to her husband, Joong Ki..


FIGHTING dear Song Hye Kyo!!!

i'm more concerned about writer as well, i have no worries about age gap or real life relationship or anything since both are them are professional actor/actress. SHK is a veteran in the industry. i watched her various work(mostly drama) and i can say her choice of works are good. My favourite is That winter the wind blow which was melo drama many years ago and i'm so happy her comeback is that genre but a lot more mature character (divorce and have kid).


Same goes to bogum, i remember for Moonlight he spent a lot of time studying Crown prince character, the way they speak (chosun royal) or their history. i think he took time before accept any works. i read his interview recently that the factor for him for casting is that he wish for the character that's fit his own age. so i guess this one is also right. There's no detail much about Kimjinhyuk apart he's poor part-timer lol but i believe and trust that it's not simple character but a heart-warming person who can touch viewers heart, the role that bogum wanted.


ok back to writer issue. even her past works are flop or seems forgettable. i seriously wish this work will change 360degree of people's perception and will be great that dont have to rely on stars power of the casting. i hope for the best for Both SHK and PBG comeback after 2 years.

That drama though with low rating was her work with the best chemistry ever. 

At a point(I didn't know much about them then), l have to google the two up cos what i was seeing was affection beyond acting. I wasnt surprised  bit they shared something in common.


One good aspect of her is she knows how to make her o actors fall for her effortlessly. 

Just wanted her to try other genre.its time. She shouldn't be stuck in one place only.

Song Hye-kyo, Song Joong-ki to return to small screen



Seoul | Sat, July 28, 2018 | 06:00 pm
Song Hye-kyo, Song Joong-ki to return to small screen
Following a break of about two years, newlywed couple Song Hye-kyo and Song Joong-ki will each star in their own TV dramas, in their respective returns to the small screen. 
(Omitted parts)
Song Hye-kyo is also to star in a tvN series, tentatively titled “Boyfriend.” She will play the daughter of an influential politician who marries into a wealthy family. She is cold and ignorant, but is to change, meeting the male lead character. 

Her partner will be national heartthrob Park Bo-gum. The casting, confirmed earlier this month, grabbed the public’s attention as Park is known to be close to Song Joong-ki, as they had starred together in an ad campaign. 


Though shooting for “Asadal Chronicles” and “Boyfriend” both is to start soon, “Asadal Chronicles” is set to air next year, as the production involves a great deal of computer graphics post-production. “Boyfriend” will air later this year.

Which drama are you referring to? Worlds Within?

Yup, despite low ratings, the drama itself showed a realistic story and the actors have good chemistry


I think she has tried various roles. She once acted as a doctor, visually impaired, director, writer, casino dealer, nun, office employee, sufferer of chronic disease, school teenage, ghost, actress, mother with sick child, documentary filmmaker, mysterious woman (shaman), historical figure, and upcoming role as widowed with a child..


For genre, she has tried romance comedy, melodrama, historical period, horror, mystery-thriller (indie film). Yup, hopefully next project we can see her in genre such as law, crime, war, action, suspense, film noir, dark comedy, adventure, mystery-thriller with long duration, etc.


if I'm not mistaken, shk once said she likes realistic and humanistic stories more than fantasy stories



got info from DC, seems Boyfriend will start shooting next month (the fourth week of august) till January 2019. I think (maybe) the production team wait until the summer vacation end.




"wait us in November"

~~~ BO GUM and KYO ~~~

Song Hye Kyo And Park Bo Gum’s Upcoming Drama To Air On tvN

E. Cha July 29, 2018



Song Hye Kyo and Park Bo Gum’s upcoming drama will premiere on tvN this fall!


On July 30, the producers of the new drama “Boyfriend” (literal title), which will star Song Hye Kyo and Park Bo Gum as star-crossed lovers, announced that the drama’s broadcast network and programming schedule had officially been determined.


A source inside the drama’s production company stated, “‘Boyfriend’ has been confirmed to air on tvN as a Wednesday-Thursday drama. It is scheduled to premiere this November.”


“Boyfriend” will tell the love story of Cha Soo Hyun (played by Song Hye Kyo), the unhappy daughter of a prominent politician and ex-wife of the heir to a wealthy conglomerate, and Kim Jin Hyuk (played by Park Bo Gum), an ordinary, innocent young man who knows how to find happiness in the small things. An incidental meeting between the two, who seemingly have nothing in common, ends up leading to a heart-wrenching romance that wreaks havoc on both of their lives.


According to the drama’s producers, “Boyfriend” will begin filming as soon as the full cast is finalized.


Are you excited to see this new drama air on tvN in November? Leave your thoughts below!
