131021 Yoona Cast as Lead Female Role in New Drama, ‘Prime Minister Is Dating’

“Prime Minister Is Dating” will consist of a love story between a country’s prime minister and a young, female reporter who is trying to gather news on him. Yoona will be taking on the role of a 28-year-old female reporter, and Lee Bumsoo will play the opposing role as a prime minister in his 40′s, the country’s youngest ever.

“Prime Minister Is Dating” was originally planned to air under the title “Prime Minister and I”, but through a recent discussion, a title change and extensive story change were decided on. It was also known as being a Korean version of the film “The Sound of Music”, with a story about a prime minister and a private teacher who enters his home. However, the production team and writer decided to draw out the story with an emphasis on the prime minister and reporter. “Prime Minister Is Dating” will be a family and romantic comedy between a prime minister in his 40′s, and a female reporter in her 20′s, with a winter background.

A source stated, “Yoona and Lee Bumsoo will start filming at the end of October. Though the two leads have a 20 year age difference, with Lee Bumsoo being 43 years old and Yoona 23 years old in real life, a new kind of chemistry is being anticipated. Yoona’s acting transformation will also become an important point to watch.”

Meanwhile, “Prime Minister Is Dating” is scheduled to begin airing in December, following the drama “Choice of the Future”.
