Hani has landed another major acting role in the new Disney+ original series Call It Love. Call It Love is a romantic melodrama about a woman named Woo Joo (played by Lee Sung Kyung), whose life falls apart when she learns about her estranged father’s affair after his death. Woo Joo becomes homeless when her father’s mistress sells Woo Joo’s family home and invests the money into her son Dong Jin’s company, so she vows to take her revenge out on Dong Jin. On the surface, Dong Jin (played by Kim Young Kwang) is the seemingly perfect CEO of Choisun Exhibition, but in reality he is a very lonely and unhappy man—too pitiful to be the target of Woo Joo’s vengeance. Call It Love is the story of two people who were never supposed to meet, but their lives become intertwined by revenge and an unexpected romance blooms.
In the teaser poster that was revealed before the drama’s release, the five main characters are shown seated together. The phrase “When love and life don’t go our way,” is written at the top of the photo. Seated at the very left side is Yoon Joon (played by Sung Joon), who is Woo Joo’s close friend. On the very right side is Woo Joo’s older sister, Hye Sung (played by Kim Ye Won).
So where does Hani come in? She plays Kang Min Young, Dong Jin’s ex-lover. Min Young cheated on him, and Dong Jin pretended not to know for a year. After their painful breakup, she is left heartbroken with numerous regrets. In Min Young’s character poster, she asks, “Can’t we start over?”
On the morning of February 21st, Hani and the rest of the main cast of Call It Love participated in a production presentation that included a photo op and Q&A session. Hani said that, while she sympathized with Min Young’s desire for love, it was difficult for her to get into character because she and Min Young are so different. Hani was careful not to reveal too much about Min Young.
After the production presentation, the main cast also did a live interview that is available to replay on NAVER NOW.
