Photographs of Lee Hyun Jin and Woori in their “Heartstrings” characters have recently surfaced online. The stills show the two actors in an embrace and their mouths very close to a kiss. 

In the drama, Lee plays Hyun Ki Young, a talented theater major plagued with intense stage fright while Woori is Han Hee Joo, Ki Young’s junior and an ambitious would-be actress, who also happens to be the only daughter of their school’s chairman of the board. 

Thus far, it has been revealed that Ki Young and Hee Joo will play lovers as leads in the school’s 100th anniversary musical production.  Their onstage kiss is anticipated to raise a reaction from Yeo Jeon Hee (played by Kang Min Hyuk), who has explicitly declared his romantic interest in Hee Joo.

Meanwhile, the photos garner interest from the netizens, as Woori has recently revealed the story behind her nude photo shoot in late 2010 with BEAST’s  Yoon Doo Joon.  Comments such as “After posing with Yoon Doo Joon, she gets to kiss with Lee Hyun Jin” and “I’m envious of her” have come out. 

“Heartstrings” airs on MBC, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 9:55 PM KST.
