Song Hye Kyo is set to return to small screens through her upcoming comeback drama titled Now, We Are Breaking Up. Most, if not all, fans know that the 39-year-old South Korean actress went on a temporary hiatus after the success of the 2018 romantic melodrama Encounter, which also starred Park Bo Gum.
To keep avid followers of Song Hye Kyo on their toes with all the thrill and excitement, here are some of the most important details about the imminent Now, We Are Breaking Up series, including its release date, cast and storyline.
Now, We Are Breaking UpRelease Date
As of this writing, SBS has not yet announced an official release date for Now, We Are Breaking Up. However, there have been reports claiming that it is likely to premiere in the second half of 2021 and will air every Friday and Saturday on SBS TV at 10:00 p.m. KST.
Filming for the imminent SBS drama series kicked off in April in Seoul. On July 26, Song Hye Kyo shared a black-and-white photo of herself, alongside her new leading man Jang Ki Yong, which suggests that they are still shooting their new K-drama project together.
Now, We Are Breaking UpStoryline
The forthcoming new K-drama series centers on the story of a design team leader named Ha Young Eun (Song Hye Kyo), who is a cold-hearted realist and a woman who prioritizes stability over anything else. Not only that because she is also self-disciplined, beautiful, smart and is very sensitive to trends.
Moreover, Ha Young Eun is the daughter of Kang Jung Ja and Ha Taek So. She is also a close pal of Jeon Mi Sook and Hwang Chi Sook.
Song Hye Kyo's character would, then, meet a popular freelance fashion photographer named Yoo Jae Kook (Jang Ki Young), who is intelligent, handsome and rich.
It remains to be seen, however, how this dreamlike story of love and breakup will unfold in Now, We Are Breaking Up.
