Singer-actress Lee Hye-ri is set to meet her former co-star and love interest Park Bo-gum in the actor’s ongoing tvN drama Record of Youth.
Hyeri’s special appearance was revealed by the end of episode 12, which aired on October 13. Ahn Jung-ha (Park So-dam) introduced her as a new artist during the next-episode preview. In this regard, Creative Group ING officially announced on October 14, “Hyeri will appear in episode 13 of Record of Youth.”
As a result, anticipation has skyrocketed for Hyeri (Miss Lee) and Park Bo-gum’s reunion, four years after their romantic pairing as Duk-sun and Taek in the massive hit series Reply 1988 (2015–2016). The drama revolved around five childhood friends and their families who all grew up living in the neighborhood of Ssangmun-dong, Dobong District, Northern Seoul. Based on its average nationwide TV ratings by Nielsen Korea, Reply 1988 ranks 5th on KDramaPal’s list of the highest-rated Korean cable dramas of all time. With that, viewers are eager to find out what happens when Duk-sun meets Taek once again but in a different “time.”
Record of Youth is an inspiring romantic drama that follows the lives of three young people with dreams of making it big in the fashion and entertainment industries. It is helmed by director Ahn Gil-ho of WATCHER (2019) and penned by screenwriter Ha Myung-hee of Temperature of Love (2017). Aside from a power cast composed of Park Bo-gum (Encounter), Park So-dam (Cinderella and the Four Knights), and Byun Woo-seok (Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency), the Monday-Tuesday drama has been pulling in more and more viewers by broadcasting cameo appearances of high-profile stars, including Kim Hye-yoon (Extraordinary You), Seo Hyun-jin (Black Dog), Kang Han-na (Designated Survivor: 60 Days), Park Seo-joon (Itaewon Class), and Lee Sung-kyung (Dr. Romantic 2).
Meanwhile, Lee Hye-ri’s episode on Record of Youth is slated to air on October 19 at 9:00 p.m. KST.
