SBS Star’s Lover starring Choi Ji Woo and Yoo Ji Tae started airing a fortnight ago. With regards to the many scenes where Lee Ma Ri (Choi Ji Woo) reminisces about past memories with her first love, many netizens are implying that the unnamed guy who plays her first love and looks like Bae Yong Joon, is implying that Bae Yong Joon and Choi Ji Woo was once romantically involved.
The guy who plays Choi Ji Woo’s first love in the drama has been dubbed the “Little Bae Yong Joon” by some. Although he doesn’t show his full face, he does look like Bae Yong Joon from his expressions and from the side view.
Choi Ji Woo once revealed that Star’s Lover had already been ready for filming 1 year ago. But she had deliberated over taking the role then. She was scared that the many scandals in the drama might be linked by others to that it really happened to Choi Ji Woo in real life. But according to the scriptwriter, the idea of linking Lee Ma Ri to so many men in the drama was to put across the stress that female stars have to face with regards to love scandals.
While Winter Sonata was airing (starring Choi Ji Woo and Bae Yong Joon), the both of them was spotted in Australia, doing the catwalk for a fashion show. Since then, the both of them have avoided appearing in public together.
