Their comic transformation occurred for a scene in which Jung Woo (Joo Sang Wook) was shooting a CF for Dontalk as the company’s CEO.
Although Jung Woo initially protested strongly against being in the CF, he eventually donned the Superman outfit, complete with fake abs. Ex-wife Ae Ra (Lee Min Jung) appeared as Marilyn Monroe, instead of the female colleague who was originally supposed to be in the CF.
Jung Woo was flustered and annoyed upon realizing that it was Ae Ra appearing opposite him. The couple made jabs at one another’s appearances, and while they awkwardly tried to remain aloof during the filming, the chemistry between them was clearly evident.
