JTBC’s new Saturday special drama Nevertheless follows two people’s journey in finding romance after promising not to love again. Han plays Yoo Na-bi, an art student at a university whose heart was broken by an unfaithful lover. She decides never to fall in love again but finds herself wanting to break that promise after meeting Park Jae-eon, played by Song, an art student who attends the same university. He is a natural flirt but does not actually believe in love. For Jae-eon, dating is a waste of time and is uninteresting, until he meets Na-bi, who makes him want to change his perspective on romance.
The first released poster teases viewers of a budding romance with an image of a man’s and woman’s legs and feet. These two people, who are likely to be Na-bi and Jae-eon, are standing close to each other under the warm sunlight and seem to be sharing physical contact. Described as excessively sweet and romantic, the love story of two young people who want to fall in love even though they know it is bad, is expected to stimulate the love cells of the viewers.
The production crew said, “[There is] no need to explain Han So-hee and Song Kang’s chemistry. They brought out the charm of their characters by adding their own colors. The flirty romance that the two young actors will complete will bring excitement. In order to preserve the fun and romantic feelings [the story has], we have decided to air the 10-episode drama once a week.”
Nevertheless, also known as I Know But, is scheduled to air beginning June 19 at 11 p.m. KST.
