Jung Yong Hwa and Yoon Eun Hye Enjoy a Blanket Date for "Future Choice"

Jung Yong Hwa and Yoon Eun Hye Enjoy a Blanket Date for "Future Choice"

Jung Yong Hwa and Yoon Eun Hye Enjoy a Blanket Date for Future ChoiceJung Yong hwa and Yoon Eun Hye were filmed enjoying a quiet blanket date.

On the October 21 episode of KBS2TV’s “Future Choice,” Jung Yong Hwa s and Yoon Eun Hye’s characters were shown having a secret date in an empty office.

The episode showed the two characters warmly sitting next to each other under the same blanket, sharing a conversation.

The October 11 filming of Jung Yong Hwa’s and Yoon Eun Hye’s blanket date was due to a mistake made by Yoon Eun Hye’s character, Mi rae, that caused both Se Ju (Jung Yong Hwa) and Mirae to become drenched. The intimate scene between the two actors portrayed the developing feelings between the two in the drama, causing many viewers to wonder about Mi Rae’s future choice.

However, the behind the scene action portrayed a different story as the professionalism of the two actors was not unnoticed throughout the difficult conditions. Although being soaked by a water truck for about one hour in order to film the scene, both actors remained attentive, focusing on their characters rather than the cold.

Moreover, Jung Yong Hwa showed his manners as he covered Yoon Eun Hye with a blanket and provided the actress with a mini heater and warm water, as the actress had to endure a longer time filming while being drenched.

Representatives of the drama complimented the actors by stating, “Watching both Yoon Eun Hye and Jung Yong Hwa will make the audience of the drama melt with warmness as the ‘fresh-romance’ couple will leave a deep impression. Fans of the drama should anticipate the development of the story as well as the surprises and secrets that will be revealed in the love story of Yoon Eun Hye.”

“Future Choice” airs on KBS2TV every Monday and Tuesday at 10PM KST.

The second episode of “Future Choice” broadcast on October 15 had a nationwide rating of 8.6%, according to a Nielsen Korea ratings report on October 16. This was a slight drop of 1.1% points from the first broadcast, causing the drama to drop to third place.

[Spoiler] "Choice of the Future" Lee Dong-geon and Yoon Eun-hye's ill-fated relationship

Lee Dong-geon sprayed Yoon Eun-hye with water.

On the second episode of the new KBS 2TV drama ""Choice of the Future", Kim Sin (Lee Dong-geon) had Na Mi-rae (Yoon Eun-hye) misunderstood and sprayed water on her, bad mouthing her as well.

Kim Sin thought she was threatening him for driving without a license and sprayed her with water. He said, "Now do you get it? Should I have used ice water? Until where has your plan progressed to? What do you want? Money? Are you a reporter? I will surrender myself tonight and report you for threatening me".

Na Mi-rae retorted, "You are the one that caused the accident a day before Independence Day. You're the one who kills the one I love". She realized he was the ill-fated man future Mi-rae (Choi Myeong-gil) said she'd run into.

"I won't pretend I am alright. I will survive. I will show everyone that I can do it". She yelled and turned around with tears. Park Se-joo (Jeong Yong-hwa) comforted her and hinted a love triangle.

Futures Choice The Suspicious Housekeeper

The new drama "Future's Choice' got off to a good start this week,only slightly trailing the ratings for the existing frontrunner "TheSuspicious Housekeeper."

It's hard to predict future ratings from onenight, since one of the contenders "Goddess of Fire" was postponed for abaseball game. But the new drama's future looks promising.

"Goddess of Fire: Jeonji," the historical drama, starring Moon GeunYoung, Lee Sang Yoon and Kim Bum has been third place for weeks now.

The series about Korea's first female potter has little chance ofincreasing ratings, as it winds down and will probably not attract newviewers for the final episodes.
