Korean Stars Song Hye Kyo & Park Bo Gum To Film K-Drama 'Boyfriend' In Cuba
Song Hye Kyo and Park Bo Gum will be traveling to Cuba soon to film their upcoming Korean TV drama Boyfriend. The production of the tvN series is originally set for Granada, Spain. However, reports indicate that there will be changes in the location shoot of Boyfriend.
The cast and crew of the TV series are most likely to head in the Caribbean island although the Cuba filming is not 100 percent certain at the moment. Soompi quoted a source from the drama production as saying that they are still working on necessary requirements to film overseas.
"We are planning on going to Cuba to film, although we still have much to be worked out locally... There are still matters that are up in the air regarding filming there, including the fact that we don't yet have permission to film in certain places. We are taking many things in consideration at this moment in time, but it is true that it's very likely we'll be going to Cuba," the insider said.
Once things have been arranged, Song, Park, and the rest of the cast will be flying to Cuba by the end of the month or early October. Another cast member that has been confirmed to join the show is Block B member P.O. as the younger brother of Park Bo Gum's character.
The upcoming tvN drama has started filming in Seoul last week. Song Hey Kyo was spotted shooting some scenes at Dongguk University while Park was seen onboard a bus.
Boyfriend tells the love story between two individuals who seem to have nothing in common. Cha Soo Hyun (Song Hye Kyo) is a daughter of a politician and ex-wife of a chaebol while Kim Jin Hyuk (Park Bo Gum) is a regular guy who finds happiness even in small things in his ordinary life. The two meet by chance and will develop a romantic relationship but their new found love will create chaos in both of their lives.
Boyfriend is one of the most anticipated TV series this year as it is the TV drama comeback for both Song and Park. Song Hye Kyo took a hiatus from acting after the success of Descendants Of The Sun in 2016 and getting married to her leading man Song Joong Ki the following year. Park Bo Gum, on the other hand, had his last TV drama Love in the Moonlight in 2016. He recently appeared as a part-time employee in the second season of variety show Hyori's Homestay.
Boyfriend is set to premiere in November on a Wednesday-Thursday timeslot. It will be helmed by Don't Dare to Dream (Jealousy Incarnate) director Park Shin Woo.
