Lee Yoo Young has shared her thoughts on her upcoming KBS2 drama “Dare to Love Me”!

Based on the webtoon of the same name, “Dare to Love Me” is a romantic comedy about the love story between Shin Yoon Bok (INFINITE’s Kim Myung Soo), a 21st-century scholar from Seongsan village who believes deeply in Confucian values, and his art teacher Kim Hong Do (Lee Yoo Young), who has a reckless and straightforward personality.

Describing why she decided to star in the upcoming drama, Lee Yoo Young recalled, “It was the cutest and most comic drama and character out of any of my projects up until now, and the script was so much fun. I found it lovable how Kim Hong Do remained plucky and cheerful even amidst situations that unfold because of a clash between Confucian and modern values, which is why I decided to join the drama.”

Regarding her approach to the role, the actress revealed, “I wanted to make Kim Hong Do a relatable character by focusing on her passion and courage as she chases her dreams, as well as portraying her realistic struggles in a balanced way.”

As for what she struggled with during filming, Lee Yoo Young shared, “Because I was playing a cheerful character, I gained positive energy [while acting], but because I also had to constantly maintain that level of energy, there were times when I struggled due to my physical stamina. I carried around snacks like chocolate so that I could raise my energy level by refueling with sugar.”

Finally, when asked to choose what she considered a “key point” of the drama that viewers could look forward to, Lee Yoo Young replied, “A key highlight [of the drama] is how completely different Shin Yoon Bok and Kim Hong Do are, as well as the fun situations and cute chemistry that unfold within their relationship.”

She went on to add, “Please give ‘Dare to Love Me’ lots of interest and love.”

“Dare to Love Me” premieres on May 13 at 10:10 p.m. KST and will be available with subtitles on Viki.
