The leading actors of the new SBS drama "That Winter, the Wind Blows" expressed their thoughts on the popular new show recently, and how it feels to be stepping back into the limelight. The soap is drawing much attention as it marks the return to TV of Jo In-sung and Song Hye-kyo after long layoffs during which their careers have gone in different directions.

"I've wanted to work with him for a long time, but I've never had the opportunity", Song said about her co-star. "We haven't done much shooting together yet. But he's been very considerate and we hit it off pretty well, so I'm enjoying working with him".

Song said she often felt lonely while shooting the show as she tried to fully immerse herself in her role of a blind heiress of a large company who has to battle on alone after her father passes away. This marks her first drama after she appeared in "The World They Live In" in 2008, and she said she found it a struggle at times to portray a character who cannot see.

"I can't look at other actors' eyes", she said. "I feel a lot of pressure, but it's quite rewarding when each scene wraps up. I think it's going to continue to be pretty tough throughout".

Jo, who is making his first appearance in a TV drama after he finished his mandatory military service in 2011, said, "I'm happy to be involved in a high-quality drama after having to wait such a long time".

The soap will start airing on Feb. 13.
