One of the more-anticipated K-dramas to premier close to July is The Time I Loved You, 7,000 Days. The story is about two incredible close platonic friends, Jang Ha Na and Choi Won. On the cusp of Ha Na’s 30th birthday, Won claims aging for men is like wine as they get better time, while women are like grapes in which time shrivels them up into raisins. Determined to prove him wrong, Ha Na strikes a bet on which of the two will marry first before turning 35.
Just by the synopsis and the fact Koreans are excellent at directing romance in their dramas, K-drama fans highly-anticipated the show’s premier, something that is thankfully happening despite an earlier plagiarism case. Now, there is even more signs pointing to The Time I Loved You, 7,000 Days going beyond the high standards K-dramas have set with their romances as Ha Ji Won claims Lee Jin Wook is her “most appealing” co-star yet.
According to KDramaStars, Ha Ji Won made the claim during an interview with Korean media outlet Newsen. Ji Won spoke about Lee Jin Wook and how he compared to her previous co-stars from past K-dramas and films.
“I think he’s the most appealing so far. All the women are going to fall for him.”
This is a big deal given the fact Ha Ji Won has worked with some of the most attractive Korean actors in K-dramas and movies. This includes Hyun Bin in Secret Romance, Lee Seung Gi in King 2 Hearts, and both Ji Change Wook and Jo Jin Moo in Empress Ki. Despite what those men may bring to the table, it is Lee Jin Wook’s “most sparkling eyes” that places him above the others in Ji Won’s opinion. This revelation probably came by the method Ha Ji Won “brings out the best” in her leading men.
“I look at my partners with loving eyes and then I think that viewers do the same. So they look even better. I don’t have anything else up my sleeve.”
The Time I Loved You, 7,000 Days airs on Saturday and Sunday at 10 p.m. KST. For those who are unable to watch it on the Seoul Broadcasting System, it will be available to view for free (with ads) on DramaFever.
