Lee Jae Hoon, lead actor of tvN's new fantasy romance drama 'With You Tomorrow,' revealed that he is a big fan of lead actress Shin Min Ah and has almost waited 10 years to share screen space with her.

"So I thought if I could work with this actress within a love story, it would be nice. I really, really wanted to meet her, so when I got the chance to meet her, I was incredibly happy," Lee Jae Hoon said.

He added that chemistry plays a great role in enacting romantic sequences. "... we're the same age, so we got to talk comfortably while we filmed on an enjoyable set. In romance, the chemistry with the other person is very important, and Min Ah made me feel very comfortable on set, plus she made me laugh a ton with just the way she was, which helped me to become engrossed in my character and act him out well," Lee Jae Hoon was quoted by AllKPop.

When the press further asked him whether he would like to travel to the future, Hoon said he would like to know who is his life partner while Min Ah said no. The show—directed by Yoo Je-won—will be replacing the record-breaking Goblin. The filming began in September 2016. Actors Lee Min-Ki and Han Ji-Min were earlier offered the lead roles, but they have turned it down for various reasons.

According to viki.com, the synopsis of the show is as follows—Yoo So Joon is a time-traveler owning a real estate company worth 200 billion won. When he sees his future self-living unhappy, he decides to avoid that fate by marrying Song Ma Rin without love. While their start is a fake marriage, he sees that his wife gets hurt because of him, and it starts to distress him. The story is about him slowly falling in love with her, despite marrying her for selfish and loveless reasons.

The teaser of the show has been extremely well received by viewers and fans are already on cloud nine to see the sizzling chemistry between the lead pair. 'With You Tomorrow' premieres February 3 at 8 PM KST!
