Actress Choi Ji-woo has filmed a short television drama with Japanese star Takuya Kimura. The Japanese sports daily Sankei Sports reported on June 20 that Choi and Takuya co-starred in a drama that will air on Fuji TV's program "SMAPÓ-SMAP" on June 27. Choi visited Japan last week to film the drama in a studio.

The newspaper also wrote that the drama starring Choi and Takuya is from the psychological game genre. In the story, the two main characters try to read each other's thoughts and mindset through facial expressions and gestures while playing cards.

Sankei Sports said Choi showed a completely different side of her acting talent by playing a composed and cool-headed woman, unlike her sensitive and emotional character in "Winter Sonata". The newspaper said Choi and Takuya looked serious when cameras were on, but laughed a lot when the filming was over or when they were checking just-filmed scenes on the site.

Sankei Sports also wrote that Takuya asked Choi about drama production in Korea. In response, Choi explained that each television drama in Korea usually consists of 20 episodes which air twice a week, and that oftentimes the filming lasts all night long. Takuya was reportedly very surprised to hear that each drama in Korea typically has up to 20 episodes.

The newspaper said Choi expressed her thanks to the Japanese production team in Japanese after the filming was over, and projected that this drama will draw significant attention as it features two high-profile stars who are Korean and Japanese.

Sankei Sports also wrote that preliminary sales of Choi's first DVD and photo album "Jiwoo Travel in Diary", which will be released in late July, have already begun on the Internet portal website "Excite".
