The Chinese fans of Korean actress Gong Hyo-jin provided a catering service for the actors and filming staff of SBS’ new drama “It’s Okay, That’s Love,” the broadcaster said on Sunday.

The members of fan club “China Baidu Gong Hyo-jin Ba” sent a truck of meals to the drama’s filming site on July 17, wishing for a successful kickoff to the television series.

Wearing her trademark smile, the actress thanked the fans for the generous gift and for traveling all the way to the regional area where the filming site is located.

Starring Gong and actor Jo In-sung, “It’s Okay, That’s Love” portrays a love story between a romantic detective novelist and a cold, chic psychiatrist.

Gong plays Ji Hae-su, a seemingly chic, hysterical but soft-hearted psychiatrist in her early 30s. While Ji’s excellent performance as a psychiatrist is acknowledged by many, she cannot help wondering if the job really suits her.

The Korean drama will be aired simultaneously in Korea and China on July 23 at 10 p.m., on Korean television broadcaster SBS and Chinese video platforms Youku and Tudou.
