Jung Yong-hwa said was "like a dream" meeting Juri Ueno

Korean singer Jung Yong-hwa of band CNBLUE has said it was "like a dream" meeting Japanese actress Juri Ueno during a shoot for Korean television show.

Ueno, visiting Korea to promote her film "Nodame Cantabile - The Movie 1," made the remark during a press conference on Thursday, explaining Jung's reaction upon seeing the Japanese starlet whom he has revealed as his ideal woman.

"As soon as he saw me, he looked very happy, saying it was like a dream," Ueno said, reflecting on her first encounter with Jung on variety show "We Got Married" where he plays a make-believe couple with Girls' Generation member Seo-hyun.

She went onto explain, "I told him that he should treat me comfortably because I'm just me...... He treated me like a friend, opening up to me once I approached him imitating Nodame."

"I promised him to meet him if he visits Japan for a concert," she added.

"Nodame Cantabile" is the sequel to the award-winning live-action drama adaptation of the manga of the same name which received the Kodansha Manga Award for best shojo manga in 2004.

The two stars from the TV series, Ueno and Hiroshi Tamaki, have again taken on the lead roles for the movie about a pianist and genius conductor falling in love with each other.

The film is set for a release on September 9 in Korea.
