The following is not a word-for-word translation, just a summary of a related news report - translated by Pao)
Popular Hallyu stars LBH & CJW will appear in KNTO's TV Ad to help promote Korea's image in Japan. In the Ad, LBH & CJW looked every inch the happy couple when they enjoyed an intimate dating on the beautiful Namee Island.
At the shooting location, the actors exchanged opinions before filming started. CJW, who was wearing a dress on that day, got a bit worried after knowing that LBH would be carrying her on his back. Eventually, the acting was repeated more than 20 times hence LBH got exhausted.
The filming location was crowded with fans. As BH & JW are lovers in Beautiful Days, the audience look forward to the reunion of the couple in the CF.
The stars were too engrossed in their acting that their overt gestures of affection set tongues wagging. To counter the rumour, LBH said he and SHK are going strong although they're not able to meet up frequently due to tight working schedules.
CJW has gained amazing popularity in Japan after the telecast of Winter Sonata. LBH's popularity is also on the rise. It is reported that both Hallyu stars intended to continue their charm-attack in Japan.
