May 13, 2024

tvN’s “The Midnight Romance in Hagwon” released its first behind-the-scenes clip!

Helmed by director Ahn Pan Seok of the hit drama “Something in the Rain,” “The Midnight Romance in Hagwon” is set against the backdrop of Daechi, a neighborhood known as the epicenter of private education in Korea due to its high concentration of hagwons (private educational institutions).

Jung Ryeo Won introduces her character Seo Hye Jin as a cold, down-to-earth, and workaholic person who worked as a Korean instructor in Daechi for 14 years, advancing her career as an ace instructor in Daechi Chase Academy.

In the making-of video, she proudly remarks that it is difficult to get such a good working atmosphere, good people, and a good project all at once and that she is happy and proud to be working with a director that she admires. She continues, “I’m not sure if it’s because all of the actors get along well with the director already, but the atmosphere was so comfortable that I felt like I knew them for a long time.”

Wi Ha Joon portrays Lee Joon Ho, whom he introduces as a very confident man who grew up in Daechi. He is confident enough to resign his promising job from a large company only to be with Hye Jin, his former teacher, and they start working together. They will not only elicit good chemistry in the drama as a couple who will continue to develop their relationship by learning from each other as Wi Ha Joon explains, but the two actors can’t stop bursting into laughter behind the scenes every time they see each other.

Wi Ha Joon and Jung Ryeo Won promise the viewers a realistic and beautiful story that has a moral behind it. The actors’ performances are so realistic that the director even forgets that he is filming. At the same time, the actors remark that the drama gets even more entertaining as it progresses, asking for lots of love and support.
