“Welcome To Waikiki 2” Stars Share Their Favorite Scenes, Stories From Set, And What To Look For In 2nd Half

JTBC’s Monday-Tuesday drama “Welcome to Waikiki 2” is heading into its second half!

The “Welcome to Waikiki 2” stars, Kim Seon Ho, Lee Yi Kyung, Shin Hyun Soo, Moon Ga Young, Ahn So Hee, and Kim Ye Won, recently shared some stories from the set, their favorite scenes from the drama so far, and what to keep an eye on in the second half.

Kim Seon Ho said, “I remember the scene where I had to play the pipe with my nose. It was really hard when filming, but I learned a lot about letting myself go.”

About her singing scene, Moon Ga Young said, “I’m not a good singer but I’m not on Soo Yeon’s level. I love the song ‘Through the Night’ a lot, so it was even harder to pretend to be tone-deaf. If my acting was awkward, I was afraid it would ruin the episode, so I looked up a lot of similar videos and incorporated it into my acting.”

Ahn So Hee talked about the scene where she and Lee Yi Kyung dressed up as beggars and said, “When I first saw the costumes, I was a bit concerned, but then I thought, ‘If I have to be a beggar, I better do it well.’ I laughed a lot when I saw myself in the mirror, but I was proud that the viewers found it funny too.”

Kim Seon Ho also picked his favorite line from the drama as, “In Episode 1, Ki Bong says, ‘Joon Gi, I pooped.’ That was really memorable. I think that you can see what kind of drama ‘Waikiki 2’ is from Shin Hyun Soo’s lovable way of speaking and looking. When I saw the way he approaches comedy, I thought I needed to step it up as well.”

Shin Hyun Soo said, “I was actually really moved and touched by the scene when Ki Bong’s friends came to cheer him on at his first tryout.” Moon Ga Young also picked a scene with Ki Bong, saying, “The most memorable scene for me was when Ki Bong had to quit baseball because of his injury. He had set his heart on this dream, but he had to give it up.”

For her favorite scene, Ahn So Hee said, “The one where I had to eat ramyun, play ping pong, and type on the keyboard with my feet. I practiced a lot and the staff helped me make the scene as funny as I could.”

Kim Ye Won said, “I remember the scene where Woo Shik and Soo Yeon finally get over their tone-deafness. It’s a sincere but comedic scene, so I think the actors had to bring a lot of energy. I really wanted to applaud them. They both worked really hard and when I watched the scene on TV, it was very funny.”

As for the second half, Kim Seon Ho said, “Since it’s a story about youth, you can’t forget about ‘love.’ I hope viewers will stay tuned as to whether Woo Shik’s one-sided crush on Soo Yeon will develop into something more.”

Lee Yi Kyung said, “The introductions are over and I think we will see even more ‘Waikiki’-like scenes in the second half. Sometimes the comedy seems really random, but it will make you smile. I hope that viewers will laugh along with us until the end.”

Shin Hyun Soo said, “I hope that people will stay interested in the stories of these six friends, who are heading toward their dreams and also hoping for love.”

Moon Ga Young said, “Viewers can look forward to seeing what happens to these six youths, who get up even after they fall down, as well as whether Soo Yeon will finally recognize Woo Shik’s true feelings.”

Ahn So Hee said, “I think how Joon Gi and Jung Eun move forward will be something to keep an eye on. Also how many more ridiculous scrapes the guesthouse members can get themselves into.”

Kim Ye Won added, “Every episode of ‘Waikiki’ feels like a fresh start. After filming amidst such energy and passion, it feels like we passed the midway point in no time. I hope the viewers will be able to feel our passion and warmth through the screen as well.”
