Global streaming platform Disney+ didn’t forget the romance as it went musical with its third Korean-language series, “Soundtrack#1.”
Starring Han So-hee and Park Hyung-sik, the music drama revolves around two characters who have been best friends for 20 years, as their relationship changes in a romantic way.
Taking the role of songwriter Lee Eun-soo, Han, 27, said that her character is a bright, honest person who does not know much about love.
“Unlike the characters that I played in my previous projects, I am happy that I finally met a character that shares many similarities with me. Through Eun-soo, the viewers will learn and know everything about unrequited love,” Han said during an online press conference Wednesday.
Park, 30, who co-stars the series as rookie photographer Han Sun-woo, hoped to capture viewers’ hearts with the couple’s emotional story.
Though director Kim Hee-won, who tested positive for COVID-19, was not able to participate in the press conference, the production company quoted Kim’s statement that she sought to focus more on the original soundtracks featuring renowned musicians, including singers Kim Jong-kook, Monday Kiz, Davichi, Lee Hi and Kyuhyun.
The first episode of the series was made available Wednesday and the subsequent episodes are set to be released on Wednesdays.
The four-part series is available exclusively on Disney+.
