Ueno Juri meant it when she expressed her anticipation for the Korean remake of Nodame Cantabile. She just upped her endorsement of Tomorrow Cantabile with a meeting with her Korean counterpart, Shim Eun Kyung.
Ueno is beloved for playing Nodame, a piano prodigy with an offbeat personality and odious hygiene, and so, when a Korean remake was announced, it wasn’t received with everyone’s welcoming arms. The casting bar was set so high; however, there was much relief when the award-winning Shim Eun Kyung joined the cast to take on the lead role. It’s even more comforting that Ueno has blessed the actress and the Korean production with her full approval.
While recently in town for the Korea-Japan Festival 2014, Ueno offered supportive words to Eun Kyung when they met. With this ultimate encouragement, how can Eun Kyung not be excited for the remake? 😉
Group 8, the company producing Tomorrow Cantabile, has just published a photo of the actresses’ brief get-to-know-you moment; I think a friendly bond has been formed between them. Maybe Ueno can be persuaded to do a cameo appearance on Tomorrow Cantabile? Who would miss that?!
