(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Myeong-eon Oh = The posts of Korean actor Chae Jong-hyeop, who recently surpassed 2 million subscribers on Instagram, have more comments in Japanese than in Korean.

From words like “cute,” “cool,” and “I love you,” to “Thank you for appearing in a Japanese drama,” “I’m looking forward to Tuesday because of Tae-oh (played by Chae Jong-hyeop),” and “I was touched by the way you spoke Japanese lines fluently.” “, and even a series of affectionate comments, such as ”

He’s sturdy, has a gentle and cute appearance, and is full of aggressive affection. Yoon Tae-oh (played by Chae Jong-hyeop), a Korean student studying abroad who embodies the fantasy of a ‘K-younger man’ like a big dog, is heating up the Japanese archipelago.

It is no longer surprising that Korean actors are popular in Japan, but the drama ‘Eye Love You’ starring Chae Jong-hyeop attracts attention because it is a Japanese drama produced and broadcast in Japan.

The Japanese TBS drama ‘I Love You’, which began airing on the 23rd of last month, was unusual in selecting a Korean actor as the lead role in a prime-time Japanese terrestrial broadcast drama.

Yoon Tae-oh, a Korean student studying abroad, played by Chae Jong-hyeop, studies endangered animals at a Japanese university and works part-time delivering Korean food. She meets and falls in love with her neighbor Yuri Motomiya (Fumi Nikaido), who enjoys eating Korean food.

Yoon Tae-oh, who is not good at Japanese and is not familiar with Japanese culture, is different from other Japanese men. Even though they are not close friends yet, he insistently asks Yuri’s name instead of his last name and chases after him, calling him by his first name in Korean style.

The way of expression is also much more direct. He expresses his feelings freely to Yuri, saying, “Kirei (pretty)” and “Sukides (I like him),” and actively conveys his feelings in Japanese, which he is still not good at, saying, “He quickly likes me.”

The drama naturally dissolves the cultural differences between the two countries. Teo’s Korean expressions such as “Let’s go eat ice cream” while drinking, or saying “I picked it up when I came” while handing over a gift, and following the ‘Korean way of making promises’, Teo puts his little finger on Yuri’s hand and stamps it with his thumb. The scene is considered a fresh and exciting point among Japanese viewers.

Since the male protagonist is Korean, there is a lot of Korean-related material. Yuri, who is obsessed with Korean food such as bibimbap, pancakes, and Rabokki, often eats at Korean restaurants, and Chae Jong-hyeop speaks quite a few lines in the play in Korean.

Most Korean lines are broadcast without Japanese subtitles, but some say that it stimulates curiosity and adds to the fun.

Yuri has the ability to read people’s minds telepathically by looking into their eyes, but Tae-o’s inner thoughts are spoken in Korean, so Yuri cannot understand them. Viewers also get to hear Tae-oh’s inner thoughts without subtitles, so they can infer Tae-oh’s inner thoughts from the same perspective as Yuri.

This drama, which features Korean actors and tries to be fresh through cultural differences, is very popular locally. As soon as the first episode was released on Netflix in Japan, it immediately ranked first in the series category and has maintained its position in the top 10 for three consecutive weeks. It is also doing well in Korea, ranking 5th in the series category as of the 15th.

In the past, actors Kim Tae-hee (99 Days with Me and the Star, 2011) and Shim Eun-kyung (County Office, 2021) have appeared in Japanese dramas, but as the popularity of K-content increases day by day, the boundaries of dramas are breaking down further.

Hwang Chan-seong of the group 2PM was also recently cast as the lead in the drama ‘Sundabangyeon’ co-produced by Japan’s Fuji TV-TWO and Hikari TV.

It is a fantasy drama that depicts the story of a Korean owner and the people who visit the coffee shop, set in a retro coffee shop on the outskirts of a shopping mall. Hwang Chan-seong plays Si-woo, a Korean who runs the coffee shop.

Cases of popular foreign actors coming to Korean home theaters have also become more frequent.

It is a fateful love story that unfolds when Hong (Lee Se-young), who was studying abroad in Japan, meets Jun-go (Sakaguchi) and reunites in Korea five years after experiencing a heartbreaking love and separation.

Taiwanese top star Xu Guang-han (Heo Guang-han) also challenges Korean dramas with the STUDIO X+U drama ‘No Way Out’. He plays the role of Mr. Smile, a killer who comes to Korea after receiving a request for a case in a mystery thriller depicting the battle between ‘those who want to kill’ and ‘those who want to survive’.

Kim Kyo-seok, a pop culture critic, analyzed, “Due to the global popularity of K-content and the influence of OTT (video streaming) platforms, actors are now able to work across borders much more actively than before.”
