Gong Yoo and Yoon Eun-hye, who starred in MBC's hit rom-com "Coffee Prince" (2007), will reunite on a two-part documentary that sheds new light on the show.
MBC floated a teaser video of "My Dear Youth ― Coffee Prince" on Wednesday, featuring the stars of the 17-episode series.
"I hesitated to appear in the documentary at first, fearing that my good memories about the drama would be spoiled or distorted," Gong Yoo said in the clip. "It is usually a bit embarrassing to look back at the characters that I played, but Coffee Prince's Choi Han-kyul was different ― I don't know why."
Yoon said: "The drama's filming site was like an exciting playground for me."
"Coffee Prince" is the romance story of Go Eun-chan (played by Yoon), who dresses as a man to get a job at Coffee Prince, a cafe run by Choi Han-kyul. The series, based on the namesake novel written by Lee Sun-mi, was one of the biggest hits of its time, with the last episode garnering a 27.8 rating.
The documentary airs on Sept. 24 and Oct. 1.
