Watch: Hyun Bin, Park Shin Hye, And Chanyeol Show Off Their Acting Skills At “Memories Of The Alhambra” Script Reading
On October 7, tvN released the first script reading for upcoming drama “Memories of the Alhambra” on their official YouTube channel.
The video starts with all the actors and crew gathering in the meeting room. Park Shin Hye jokingly tells Hyun Bin that Chanyeol is her younger brother. The cast introduce themselves and their characters. The director, Ahn Gil Ho, addresses the cast, “I hope this can be a drama where we help fill each other’s difficulties.” Writer Song Jae Jung says “I hope we won’t lose our strength and keep pushing till the end of the drama.”
The video shows Hyun Bin getting into character as investment company CEO Yoo Jin Woo, looking fierce and assertive. His character seems a bit arrogant but charismatic as he says “No need to thank me. I bought it at that price because it was worth that much. I’m a businessman; I don’t waste my time.” He then gets angry, shouting “If I lose this, it’s all your fault!”
Park Shin Hye shows off her character, Jung Hee Joo’s clumsy and unique personality as she makes the whole cast burst into laughter through her lines. Her character seems flustered as she says “You’ve seen me perform? Where?” She shows her character’s honesty, saying “My dad’s been through a similar fraud situation.” Her unique charm shows through the way she talks to herself, saying aloud “Calm down. Don’t get worked up. Don’t make any mistakes. Stay calm.”
EXO’s Chanyeol plays Jung Se Joo, Jung Hee Joo’s trouble making younger brother. The mysteriousness of his character is shown through the way he slyly and subtly delivers his lines. His character calmly asks, “Is this Yoo Jin Woo’s cell phone number? You know CEO Cha Hyung Seok right? You guys are friends.”
Hyun Bin and Park Shin Hye reveal a moment where their characters are talking to each other, with Hyun Bin asking if there’s any empty rooms and being flustered at Park Shin Hye’s response that there are no rooms except for a single room on the sixth floor, with the catch being that the elevator isn’t working. She then recommends him to find another place to stay. The two characters bicker back and forth and their relationship slowly progresses as they start wondering more about each other’s strange personalities.
The rest of the cast also get into their characters as they read their lines with passion.
