It's been confirmed that SNSD's Yoona will be appearing in 'Prime Minister is Dating'.
According to Dramatic Tok, in charge of the promotion for the drama, Yoona has been confirmed as the lead role of the KBS 2TV Monday/Tuesday drama 'Prime Minister is Dating' (or 'in a relationship'.. will depend on what people start calling it).
'Prime Minister is Dating' will consist of a love story between a country's prime minister and a young, female reporter who is trying to gather news on him. Yoona will be taking on the role of a 28-year old female reporter, and her opposing role of the youngest prime minister in his 40s, will be played by Lee Bumsoo.
'Prime Minister is Dating' was originally planned to air under the title 'Prime Minister and I', but through a recent discussion, a title change and extensive story change were decided on. Also, it was known as being a Korean version of the film 'Sound of Music', with a story about a prime minister and a private teacher to enters his home. However, the production team and writer decided to draw out the story with emphasis on the prime minister and reporter. 'Prime Minister is Dating' will be a family, romantic comedy between a prime minister in his 40s, and a female reporter in her 20s, with a winter background.
A source stated, "Yoona and Lee Bumsoo will start filming at the end of October. Though the two leads have a 20-year age difference, with Lee Bumsoo being 43-years old and Yoona 23-years old in real life, a new kind of chemistry is being anticipated. Yoona's acting transformation will also become an important point to watch."
Meanwhile, 'Prime Minister is Dating' is scheduled to begin airing in December, following 'Choice of the Future'.
