The filming set of the movie "April Snow", starring Bae Yong-joon, was opened to reporters for the first time in Samcheok, Gangwon Province. On that day, the usually serene village near a squid fishing port was crowded with over 350 journalists.

The scene filmed in front of the reporters was the first date of the movie's main characters In-soo (played by Bae Yong-joon) and Seo-young (played by Son Ye-jin). It was an ordinary dating scene of a man and a woman enjoying the warm sunshine together. In the scene, the two characters realize for the first time that they have strong feelings for each other.

"I feel like I am learning acting from scratch. Although I am well familiar with director Heo's style, I never imagined it would be so different this time", said Bae. But he added that by the time the movie is finished shooting, his acting style will be much more similar with the director's work style. "It's a transformation in terms of acting rather than in terms of character", noted Bae.

Apart from Bae, there is another reason high expectations are being placed on the movie: the lead actress Son Ye-jin, who is known to be very talented in melodramatic acting. Her character falls in love with Bae's character, and the two begin a complicated and entangled relationship. Since both actors are adept at melodramatic roles, their acting in the first filmed scene looked very real.

"April Snow" will open in September of this year.
