Nozomi Bando On Netflix’s Love Like A KDrama
Japanese actor and model Nozomi Bando is one of the 8 cast members of Netflix’s Love Like A KDrama. The show follows eight hopeful actors as they land roles in romantic K-dramas while searching for love. For the first time ever, the series will reveal whether the cast members’ on-screen chemistry will translate into reality.
Nozomi appears in the show alongside Song Ji Hyuk, Kim Won Shik, Lee Tae Gyun, Kim Dong Kyu, Ayano Kudo, and Rio Yamashita.
Falling in Love Like a Romantic Drama, the Japanese version of the soon-to-be-released series serves as a sort of precursor to the show.
Viewers may get to see genuine romance in the vein of K-drama in this “romantic cross-border journey,” which follows four Japanese actresses as they take on a daring project that needs them to work with Korean actors to find new roles that match them in romantic series. All eight of these competitors will be living together in pairs for the length of the reality TV show as they try to secure main roles in six mini-dramas.
Will these candidates be able to support the person they have a soft spot for as true romance blooms, or will they lose their romantic interests to someone else? The idea itself will give life to the common K-dramas’ depictions of heartache, misery, and possibly even one-sided love.
Before the premiere, Nozomi added, “Hey! It has finally been announced! I will be appearing in the Korean drama Koi ga Shitai which will be aired on Netflix from November 28th! I lived in Korea for about a month! It’s been years since we lived together! It felt like that, but it was fun because it reminded me of the old days. Yes, for some reason, those days reminded me of my old self! Well, I guess I fell in love with acting. () Actually, it’s so scary to see Hayabusa-kun, whom I’ve known since I was a kid, watching me🤣I wanted to ask him what he thought, but I decided not to. Sigh. I get nervous watching the broadcast. 🤣Everyone did their best, so please support us. Please .”
Nozomi Bando Boyfriend
Kim Dong Kyu and Nozomi Bando who were the remaining cast members to pair believe that they were meant to be. They reportedly met at an arcade and they believed that fate brought them together. Nozomi accepts Dong Kyu’s proposal to pair up and the two hit it off.
Nozomi also admired his height and grin as well.”He looks like he came straight out of a K-Drama,” Nozomi says. “So far, I think he’s the most charming of the guys.”
In one instance of the show, Dong Kyu unexpectedly excuses himself from a casual outing for dumplings, saying he has to use the restroom. But he takes a brief detour to a local flower store and buys Nozomi a bouquet. She was obviously happy when he gave her the flowers when he got back to the grocery store.
Even when they later went to the coffee shop, Dong Kyu disclosed—at Nozomi’s request—that he had never intended to be paired with anyone else and that there is a deeper meaning to the sunflower, which he referred to as a “secret.”
Even though he had the option to select someone else for a better chance at the part, Dong Kyu decided to give Nozomi another chance at the audition. They went out to eat, and Nozomi revealed in her confessional that she had always been drawn to “guys born in June.” Dong Kyu acknowledges that Nozomi drew his attention the most! Despite losing the second audition as well, they had better ratings from the judges, and the hosts thought they were starting to click both on and off-screen.
The relationship status of Nozomi Bando is unclear. She hasn’t updated her relationship status after the show.
