On April 18, SBS held a press conference for their new Wednesday-Thursday drama “Entertainer” starring Ji Sung, Hyeri, Chae Jung An, Kang Min Hyuk, and more.
Ji Sung revealed Lee Bo Young’s opinion on Hyeri’s casting and commented, “After looking at the script for ‘Entertainer,’ I wondered who would be Green and it turned out to be Hyeri. My wife was really happy about it. I didn’t watch ‘Reply 1988,’ but [my wife] told me she acts well, praised her, and said it turned out well.”
The actor then confessed, “Honestly, I felt good but I was burdened by the age gap. I don’t know how Hyeri feels about this, but when we met I asked her to think of me as an oppa (older brother),” and laughed.
Ji Sung will be acting as Seok Ho who worked for a top entertainment agency and has become the head of a new agency.
“Entertainer” will air on April 20 at 10 p.m. KST.
