Back in April, KBS released a video of Gong Hyo Jin and IU of “Producersupposedly meeting for the first time. The clip is filled with some cringe-worthy awkwardness, as they compare ages and descend into a painful silence.

On May 16’s episode of “Entertainment Weekly,” the stars admit that it was all staged for laughs.

Gong Hyo Jin says that it wouldn’t have been any fun if they had seemed too comfortable around each other. In reality, the two had chatted together before they’d filmed the video.

The interviewer confirms with IU, who says, “Yes, we were actually really comfortable around each other.”

“Producer” is currently airing on KBS.
