Broadcast channel ENA confirmed on October 17 that actors Jung Woo Sung and Shin Hyun Been will be the main characters of the upcoming series “Say You Love Me.”
“Say You Love Me” will be shown to the public starting this November. The series will base its story on the Japanese romance drama “Aishiteiru to Ittekure” which premiered in 1995 on TBS Japan. The Japanese drama received various recognitions from Japan’s The Television Drama Academy Awards.
Jung Woo Sung and Shin Hyun Been will be the main leads of the drama portraying the characters Cha Jin Woo and Jung Mo Eun respectively. The two will be joined by actors Kim Ji Hyun, Lee Jae Kyoon, and Park Jin Joo as part of the cast.
The upcoming series will reveal the romance between a painter with a hearing impairment named Cha Jin Woo who connects with people through his art, and an actress named Jung Mo Eun who communicates with him with her heart. The two communicate as their eyes speak and confess through their facial expressions.
“Say You Love Me” will be helmed by director Kim Yoon Jin who also created the romance drama “Our Beloved Summer.” The script will be penned by “Love In The Moonlight” writer, Kim Min Jung. The series will be produced by Studio & New.
It will air in November exclusively on the ENA channel.
This will be the official comeback of Jung Woo Sung to K-dramas after 12 years. Back in 2020, the actor became the replacement for Bae Sung Woo in the series “Delayed Justice.” In 2021, the actor made a cameo appearance in “The Silent Sea.”
