“The Time We Were Not In Love”: Ha Ji Won & Lee Jin Wook’s SBS Midnight TV Interview + The Oh Family + Choo Soo Hyun Crushes On Our Hero In Uniform

As we count down to the premiere of The Time We Were Not In Love (just one more day 😀 ), there have been promotions aplenty to cool our antsy pants. It has been a big week for the show as it rolled out a press conference, a long preview, and more stills! And then, there’s this interview with the leads on the SBS program Midnight TV Entertainment.



Watching this interview (and looking through their press conference photos), you wouldn’t think Ha Ji Won and Lee Jin Wook hadn’t known each other before working on this drama. Having only been acquainted with each other for a few months, the level of familiarity between them is comparable to one that exists in 17-year friendships.

Is Ha Ji Won always this bubbly in interviews? In any case, she seems to be enjoying promoting the drama. She certainly made it known at the press conference that she’s having a good time being at work every day, and my delusional fangirl side thinks having Lee Jin Wook as a co-star contributes to that pleasure. You can tell that his admiration for her is genuine, and it isn’t just backed up by his praises but also by his body language and his attentive gaze at her during parts of the interview. I wish it were me sitting next to him, feeling conscious about his extended arm draped just behind me, and wishing he’d “accidentally” touch my shoulder … Yeah, where was I? Okay, yeah, I think there was some flirtation on his part during the interview, and who wouldn’t be naturally attracted to Ha Ji Won? 😉 Subconscious attraction or what not, the chemistry between these two is exploding, and there are 16 episodes to keep us high on it!

Speaking of chemistry, there’s this family portrait of Oh Ha Na’s family. It’s a cute household!



I’m not programmed to pay attention to the chemistry between Lee Jin Wook’s Choi Won and Choo Soo Hyun‘s Lee So Eun, so, the following stills don’t really do anything for me, other than I can relate to her crush on him. LOL. It’s still early to say if she’ll be as cloying as Maggie, but I hope not.

    Yes, Ha Ji Won is always very smiley and bubbly in interviews. I can’t tell if she’s really happy to act here because she’s this happy and friendly with her costars in every project!

    Well as for me… I think she’s enjoying promoting and filming with Lee Jin Wook oppa. They’re si heesy to the bones! I want them to be real. That would be great. I haven’t heard any relationship with Ha Ji Won in the past. However, as we all know, Lee Jin Won briefly dated Gong Hyo Jin recently. But, but, but, looking at their on and off screen closeness is so out of control. Who wouldn’t notice them? They’re so dang pretty and handsome that when you see them sitting togther, they have his different glow in them. Aww fan girling Lee Jin Wook oppa and hoping for the drama and so as for them [for real, seriously]!! Hey hey hey! Howdy jinx. Crossed fingers! 😉

    Yeah that’s her natural state she has a lot of aegyo. watch running man ep 86 where she is the guest she is overflowing with aegyo.. I bet acting in TTWWNIL feel like more natural for her since she is so bubbly in real life…
    I wish she get married soon…

  • CHERRYBOMB says:

    Choo Soo Hyun‘s Lee So Eun I hope that her role here isn’t annoying as lala in In Time With You TW ver…

    Thanks for posting this ! And yes, HJW is known for her bubbly personality. She actually toned it down during the press conference (compared to her press conferences, lol). Btw, any possibility of having this interview translated ?
