FT Island’s Lee Hongki displays his unusual friendship with actress, Choi Ran.

Lee Hongki is making his drama comeback after a period of 5 years, in the SBS Wed-Thu drama “You’re Beautiful“, which will start airing on 7th October. Lee Hongki said that, he has a cross-generation friendship with actress, Choi Ran, who is playing the role of his mother in the upcoming drama.

After filming the drama “Freezing Point” in 2004, Lee Hongki became a singer. It has been 5 years till now. Choi Ran acted as his mother in “Freezing Point” and they are coming together again to work for the new drama. They have also been keeping in touch with each other all this while.

In actual fact, Lee Hongki who’s born in 1990 and Choi Ran who’s born in 1960 have an age gap of 30 years. If the period of 30 years is considered as a generation, then the friendship between the both of them is a “cross-generation” one.

“I was very happy to see her again,” Lee Hongki expressed, “Though it’s a pity that we do not have any scenes together in the earlier part of the drama, she still calls to give me encouragement.”

The new SBS Wed-Thu drama “You’re Beautiful” talks about the growth of a teenage band and the love between the members, with Lee Hongki playing the role of “Jeremy“. “You’re Beautiful” will start airing on 7th October, taking over the slot of “Swallow The Sun“.
