Sungkyunkwan Scandal is based on a novel and gets started when a female character enters school at Sungkyunkwan in place of her younger brother, poses as a male, and meets the characters played by Micky Yoochun, Song Joong-ki, and Yoo Ah-in. (So, basically a historical version of Hana Kimi meets You’re Beautiful?) The female role will be played by Jung Da-young of the currently airing Fine Windy Day.
It’s been a year since Yoo Ah-in’s last drama, The Man Who Can’t Get Married; his most recent film was Sky and Ocean, and Antique Bakery prior to that. I don’t think those projects showed him off to his best advantage, and the reason I’m excited is because he’s an actor who can look adorable one minute, but is capable of being a chameleon and doing some fierce emoting the next. He was practically the only cast member who bothered to put any effort into Strongest Chil-woo — which is also the role that convinced me he had the skills to pull off intense and dramatic acting. (And if you’re skeptical about that, here’s a refresher of role he played — a mysterious assassin — in that series.)
The drama will premiere in September.

The story has many painful scenes but the scene when Jaejoong-san playing Doctor and Kinami-san playing MingHa comes out the viewers say they feel relaxed. It seems like the brother and sister are really close…
That makes me happy! I really feel like “what drama am I filming?” that’s how much the sibling scene is different *laugh*. It makes me think is it alright to have all these fun scenes? We filmed the scene today where for the first time Haru-san (Ueno Juri) comes to our house, Haru-san seemed to like the house… She said “this house is fun!” *laugh*.
The setting is Korean siblings, the script is in Japanese but the Japanese isn’t smooth. Was that discussed and decided with the director?
In the beginning I wasn’t supposed to have any accent but I wanted everyone to feel that im playing a Korean role. We had a rehearsal and tried to balance the accent with Jaejoong-san. But from a Japanese person its difficult to tell how to do it. So I had Jaejoong-san or my Korean friend read the script then I check it and practice. Because of that when I talk normally I have an accent *laugh*. At my house I watch tv shows that Yoon Son-ha-san is in.
What is your impression on Jaejoong-san who plays your brother?
He is very nice. In a good way he is normal. He’s a normal 24 year old guy… The scene where he’s with his sister he’s always bright so I have an image of him being bright. From his past works I had an image of him as an idol or a star but he’s very natural and I think that’s what is loved by everyone. So I feel like he’s my real brother. Even though we’re the same age *laugh*.
