Watch: Park Bo Young And Ahn Hyo Seop Know When To Be Silly And Serious In Making Video Of “Abyss”
“Abyss” is a fantasy drama about a magical marble that reincarnates the souls of the dead as entirely different people. Park Bo Young stars as Go Se Yeon, a breathtakingly beautiful prosecutor who is murdered and then brought back to life as an ordinary-looking woman, while Ahn Hyo Seop plays Cha Min, Go Se Yeon’s best friend of over 20 years who is magically transformed into a stunningly handsome man. After their mysterious reincarnations, the two lifelong best friends embark on a quest to find Go Se Yeon’s killer.
The video starts off with Park Bo Young trying to a sneak a kiss on Ahn Hyo Seop. Just when she leans into him, a noise catches her off-guard, and she quickly pretends to be asleep. The director can’t hold in his laughter at her brilliant comical acting, and she explains with a smile, “I had to writhe in embarrassment.”
The clip then shows Ahn Hyo Seop pretending to be Conan Edogawa from the manga series “Case Closed” as he says, “Me? My name is Conan Edogawa. I’m a detective.” He must have realized his embarrassment because he quickly asks his impersonation to be edited out. Then he asks, “Why do I have a feeling it won’t be [edited] out?”
Next, Ahn Hyo Seop, Park Bo Young, and Han So Hee prepare to film the scene where they have to be shocked by a car explosion. They discuss the timing of their reaction with the director who tells them, “Make sure you don’t say, ‘Danger! Boom!” The actors burst into laughter at that, and they joke around with the idea before going into official filming.
Then Ahn Hyo Seop, Park Bo Young, Lee Si Eon, Han So Hee, and Song Sang Eun rehearse the scene where they gather in the hospital room Park Bo Young is admitted in. Park Bo Young says, “We have to catch the culprit,” while holding out her fist in determination, and Han So Hee and Ahn Hyo Seop also hold up their fists in fighting spirits. Then all of them put their hands in the middle to cheer themselves on.
Despite their enthusiastic spirit, the actors continuously make mistakes with their lines, and they eventually burst into laughter. However, being the experts they are, they finally film the scene with no mistakes. When the director points out that they may have missed a line, they refute, and Park Bo Young adds, “We may seem chaotic, but we do everything we have to.”
The behind-the-scene video ends with Park Bo Young and Ahn Hyo Seop filming the kiss scene. Park Bo Young confesses, “Min [referring to Ahn Hyo Seop] made a request to me yesterday. He told me to prepare an acting that will make hearts burst. So I thought about it all night.”
The two actors go over their position with the director. Ahn Hyo Seop asks the director many questions but leans towards Park Bo Young as he attempts to find the best way to film the scene. The director points out, “You’re so funny, Hyo Seop. You’re asking me about my opinion while you’re getting ready for the kiss.” Ahn Hyo Seop explodes with laughter as he claps at the observation.
Although Park Bo Young and Ahn Hyo Seop goofed off behind-the-scenes, when it came to filming the important kiss scene, they made sure to act it sincerely with every detail in order to create a memorable scene for the viewers.
