In a forthcoming space drama, Lee Min Ho and Gong Hyo Jin are drawn to one another despite not sharing a gravitational field.
“Ask the Stars” (literal translation) is a new romantic comedy about an astronaut and a tourist who meet and fall in love at a space station. The drama will be helmed by director Park Shin Woo of “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay” and “Lovestruck in the City,” while the script will be penned by writer Seo Sook Hyang, who is known for hits like “Don’t Dare to Dream” (“Jealousy Incarnate”) and “Pasta.” Lee Min Ho will take on the role of gynecologist Gong Ryong who paid an astronomical amount of money to travel in space as a tourist. Gong Hyo Jin will play top astronaut captain Eve Kim, a perfectionist who does not tolerate any mistakes.
The stills preview captain Eve Kim and tourist Gong Ryong wearing spacesuits. One of the stills captures the moment when Eve Kim is fixing Gong Ryong’s headset, standing very close to him. The way they gaze at each other makes viewers’ hearts flutter, raising anticipation for the story that will unfold in the space.
In addition, other talented actors including Oh Jung Se, Han Ji Eun, Kim Joo Heon, and Lee El are expected to drive excitement by enriching the drama. It is reported that all the cast members are working hard every day to perform wire action that requires high level of skills to realistically express the state of weightlessness in the spacecraft.
While the broadcasting channel has yet to be decided, “Ask the Stars” is slated to be released in 2023.
