Nevertheless is JTBC’s upcoming Saturday romance drama that follows two people who helplessly fall in love with each other no matter how hard they try to avoid relationships.
Taking center stage are Song Kang as Park Jae-eon, an art student who likes to flirt but actually does not want to be in love, and Han So-hee as Yoo Na-bi, an art student who avoids being in relationships after the issues from her past love.
In the main poster released on May 26, Park Jae-eon is leaning on Yoo Na-bi’s shoulder comfortably. Their gazes contain different complex emotions, and their hands are slightly intertwined, as if they want to be with each other but are hesitating to act on their feelings.
The drama also released Song’s character stills. In the images, the actor’s visuals stand out as he transforms into Park Jae-eon, who is shown as a person with two different sides.
Jae-eon finds romantic love unnecessary and prefers to flirt instead. Sometimes, he is warm to people, but in other times, his face has no emotions at all. He can be sweet and friendly but also cold and indifferent.
Song Kang shared, “The drama is definitely different from the other youth romances I’ve seen before. I was attracted to it, and I thought I could show my new image through it. It’s a very honest drama. Therefore, I think that it can [bring out] a new [kind of] excitement.”
Nevertheless is a 10-episode drama that will begin airing on June 19 at 11 p.m. KST.
