South Korean actor Bae Yong Joon called on his fans in Japan to watch an ''anime'' series of his signature drama ''Winter Sonata,'' for which he provided a voice-over, prior to the release of the series in Japan next month.
''The plot is different from the original drama and that gives the anime series a new kind of charm,'' Bae said in a press release earlier this month.
Bae recalled the difficulties of doing a voice-over for the main character, based on his role in the original series. ''It was harder than I imagined as I had to express my feelings using only my voice,'' he said.
Actress Choi Ji Woo, Bae's co-star in the drama, also did a voice-over for the anime series, which has 26 parts including episodes that were never depicted in the TV drama, such as what happened to the couple -- Kang Joon Sang and Jung Yu Jin -- after they parted.
While the conclusion of the anime version has yet to be finalized, Bae said, ''I'm very interested, like many people, in what kind of climax will come.''
