AceShowbiz - "The King in Love" cast recently visited Im Siwan who is currently serving in the military. Joining her co-stars during the visit, Yoona didn't come empty handed. In a new interview, the Girls' Generation member reveals what she gave to Siwan. "I don't know if it'll give him strength, but I also gave him a signed Girls' Generation CD," she says.
"Im Siwan appeared to be as cool and energetic as ever," Yoona says of Siwan. "He said that he was unable to watch any of 'The King in Love' because of training and such. I told him to not worry because there were many people who liked [his character] Wang Won."
The 27-year-old idol also reveals that the visit was planned all by themselves, without the help of managers or producers. She explains, "We have a group chat on a messaging app. We all voted on a date together, pitched in to reserve a bus, and prepared food. It was the first time I've experienced something like this. It felt like I was going on an university field trip."
Kim Jung Wook who played Eunuch Kim posted on his Instagram account a picture from the cast's visit. Among the 13 cast members who visited Siwan two days ago were Hong Jong Hyun, Oh Min Suk, Yoon Jong Hoon, Park Young Woon and Choo Soo Hyun.
Siwan enlisted in the military on July 11 after completing the filming of the MBC historical drama. He recently completed basic training and received assignment for the rest of service. He will be serving as an assistant instructor for new recruits of the 25th division, his agency Plum Actors has confirmed. He is scheduled to be discharged on April 10, 2019.
Meanwhile, "The King in Love" aired its last episode on Tuesday, September 19. To bid farewell to fans, Yoona shared several behind-the-scenes photos during the filming of the series, including some funny pictures with Siwan and Jong Hyun.
In the caption, she thanked everyone who has watched and loved the show. She also gave a shout-out to the cast and crew who worked hard during the production.
