Bae Yong-joon and Choi Ji-woo Reunite for Winter Sonata after 7 years

Bae Yong-joon and Choi Ji-woo, who played Joon-sang and Yu-jin in the 2002 KBS drama Winter Sonata, will reunite to play the same roles after a break of seven years.

The two stars have provided voice-overs as Joon-sang and Yu-jin for the Japanese animation Winter Sonata, which aired for 15 episodes on SKY PerfecTV. They will make actual appearances in the final scene of the final episode.

The animation is a joint Korea-Japan production of the KBS drama Winter Sonata, which has played a major part in spreading Hallyu, or the Korean wave, in Asia and other parts of the world. The “Animation Winter Sonata, Another Story” event held at Tokyo Dome attracted some 50,000 fans in last September to celebrate its airing.

A member of the production crew said, “An increasing number of Japanese viewers are interested in the animation Winter Sonata with each episode. The producers and actors decided to shoot a live action ending scene to show our gratitude for the viewers’ support.”

Meanwhile, the final episode of the animation Winter Sonata is scheduled to air on April 24.
