On December 4th, Yoona attended a press conference for her upcoming drama, “Prime Minister and I“. The event took place in the Grand Ballroom of the Ambassador Hotel in Seoul. Yoona’s costars, Lee Bumsoo, Yoon Siyoon, and Chae Jungan, were also present.

During the press conference, Yoona spoke about the ease with which she was able to act as her character, reporter Nam Dajung, saying, “I haven’t done many dramas but this character is one of the weirdest and shows a lot of weird sides,” and, “There is an easy side to it because I am actually weird most of the time. I had fun acting as this character because this character is more ‘Im Yoona-tic’ than any other characters I’ve played. Sometimes I even think, ‘Is it okay for me to be acting this way?'” Lee Bumsoo also mentioned that there is no lip-touching kiss scene yet, but to possibly expect one later.
