Juri Ueno meets Korean “Nodame Cantabile” Shim Eun Kyung

Korea will be running its own adaptation of the beloved manga and Japanese series “Nodame Cantabile“. Actress Shim Eun Kyung who plays Nae-il, the Korean version of Nodame, met Juri Ueno, the Japanese female lead of the said series. The two had the chance to meet as part of the 10th Anniversary Korea-Japan Festival 2014 in Seoul. The drama production company behind the remake, Group Eight, released a photo of the two together.

In regards to the Korean version, she reportedly said

“I don’t think I can set any expectations for it. I just can’t wait to see it.”

“I heard Shim Eun Kyung is currently the same age as I was while filming ‘Nodame,’ and this is her first lead role in a drama. She is in a similar situation as I was, and I hope she enjoys success through the drama. I heard Korean actors have strong mind control when it comes to challenges. I believe the cast is perfectly fit for the drama.”

The Korean version “Tomorrow Cantabile”  will be airing at KBS2 starting October.
