On November 21, a press conference for an upcoming romance drama 'Encounter' took place in Nonhyeon-dong, Seoul.
Song Hye Kyo said, "Many people think that we were close friends before filming 'Encounter', but that is not true. We actually met through this drama."
She continued, "Bo Gum is younger than I am, but it wasn't so easy for me to approach him. We got to talk a lot while shooting the drama though. He would listen to my opinion well, and so we had no conflicts."
She went on with a laugh, "But I have gone on a diet for this drama, as I'm acting with Park Bo Gum. I wanted to look pretty."
The two characters unexpectedly meet one day, and start falling for each other.
The drama is scheduled to air its first episode on November 28.
