Actress Jeon Do-yeon's new film with actor Gong Yoo will hit theaters next month.
Set in Finland, the melodrama called "A Man and a Woman" is about an extramarital affair between a man and a woman after they coincidentally meet in the Nordic nation.
"It's a tale of passionate love, which I hadn't done in films for a while," said Jeon during a press event last week.
"As I had to play a role of an unfaithful woman, I tried to fully immerse myself in the script to the point where I was thinking that there are various forms of love that exist in this world."
Gong said the film fulfilled two of his dreams. "I was happy to work with Jeon. That was one of my wishes as an actor. The other was that I wanted to make a grown-up love story," he said.
Jeon also expressed her appreciation for Gong, saying "He treated me so comfortably and I felt like I was being loved, and that really helped me get into character. I had my birthday while we were filming in Finland, and he threw a party for me."
