It was revealed that the kiss scene in SBS‘ “Angel Eyes” was actress Nam Ji Hyun‘s first kiss… ever! As the drama focuses on the innocent first love of a blind girl named Soo Wan and a smart student named Dong Joo, the first two episodes of the drama displayed the cautious, but sweet relationship of the two child actors. As Nam Ji Hyun played the younger version of Soo Wan while Kang Ha Neul acted as the younger version of Dong Joo, drama viewers were thrown back 12 years in to the past to see the first steps of the developing relationship.
In episodes one and two, viewers saw how Nam Ji Hyun and Kang Ha Neul exchanged their first kiss on the stairs, and then another kiss in front of a telephone pole. However, it was noticed on set that the actress was extremely nervous to film the kiss scene, and it was soon revealed that it would be the actress’ first kiss in her entire life! Unlike Nam Ji Hyun, Kang Ha Neul had a kiss scene with other actresses in his past dramas such as “To the Beautiful You,” “Monstar,” and “The Heirs.”
According to the kiss scene, a representative of “Angel Eyes” said, “I remember that Nam Ji Hyun was really nervous before her kiss scene, and then we found out that it would be her first kiss. Perhaps it was that reason, but Nam Ji Hyun and Kang Ha Neul were able to portray a more innocent and sweet scene.”
Sadly, we won’t be able to see Nam Ji Hyun and Kang Ha Neul together anymore because the drama went back 12 years to the present, where Soo Wan and Dong Joo have all grown up. However, you will still be able to see a drama about a sweet and fragile love as Goo Hye Sun will act as the older Soo Wan who, after many years, is approached by her former first love Dong Joo, played by Lee Sang Yoon. Check out the sweet kiss scene in episode two from below!
