Actors Ji Chang-wook and Shin Hye-sun said about the setting of falling in love with their ex-lover again, "It's difficult if it's me in real life."

On the afternoon of the 1st, the production presentation for JTBC's new Saturday-Sunday drama 'Welcome to Samdali' was broadcast live online. Actors Ji Chang-wook, Shin Hye-sun, and director Cha Young-hoon attended the event.

'Welcome to Samdali' is a romance in which Samdal (played by Shin Hye-sun), a dragon born in a stream at the foot of Hallasan Mountain, loses everything and falls, returns to his hometown with Yongpil (played by Ji Chang-wook), who cherished the stream, and finds love while catching his breath. drama. Director Cha Young-hoon, who directed 'When the Camellia Blooms' and 'Meteorological Administration People: The Cruel History of Office Love', and writer Kwon Hye-joo of 'Confession Couple' and 'Hi Bye, Mama!' have teamed up for the first time.

Director Cha Young-hoon introduced, "This is a story about the love of two people who were born on the same day, lived together for 38 years, were friends and lovers, and had no choice but to break up for undisclosed reasons."

He continued, “It can also be said to be a story about space and people. My home is in a city located in the countryside, but I know this well because I am from the countryside. When I come up to Seoul, I have a desire to achieve my dreams, move forward, and run, but when I come back to my hometown, I feel at ease. I feel comforted. Because we all have such spaces and people. I tried to create a story about a space represented by my hometown that can support and comfort me wholeheartedly, and people represented by family, lovers, and friends. “I did,” he said.

Like Cho Sam-dal and Cho Yong-pil in 'Welcome to Samdali', will they be able to fall in love again with their ex-boyfriend and ex-girlfriend who broke up 8 years ago? Ji Chang-wook said, "Because reality and drama can be different. Considering 'Welcome to Samdali', I think it's quite possible, but I don't think it will happen due to personal reasons." He added, "If you look at the reasons why we inevitably broke up, it will come out. “I think I’ll be able to love you enough when we meet again,” he said.

Shin Hye-sun nailed it, saying, "When I look back on my life, it's impossible for me. That's why I think our drama is a fantasy. I think it's going to be difficult."

‘Welcome to Samdali’ will be aired for the first time on the 2nd at 10:30 PM.
