Watch: “Hotel Del Luna” Reveals What It Was Like For IU And Yeo Jin Goo To Film Without CGI
The pre-CGI video highlighted IU and Yeo Jin Goo’s acting skills as they looked on a brilliant cityscape view that turned out to be filmed in front of a blue screen. Later, they looked on a beautiful beach scene that turned out to be filmed in front of the ordinary East Sea.
The video also highlighted the degree of practical effects used in “Hotel Del Luna.” Much of the ghost scenes were done with a mixture of CGI and practical effects, like the little girl ghost who hovered in the corner of the elevator. While her arm was extended through CGI, her hovering was created through the use of wires.
The other video contained bloopers from IU and Yeo Jin Goo’s time on set. In the first scene, IU accidentally hit Yeo Jin Goo in the face with his shoe and the two ended up bursting into laughter. In another scene, Yeo Jin Goo startled IU when he took away her glasses but continued acting, unaware that she had already broken character and laughed.
Yeo Jin Goo also deliberately lightened the mood on set, such as when IU had to film a running scene. After the camera had shot most of the scene, he chased after her and said, “CEO! You know your knees are bad!”, prompting IU to laugh and retort, “You want to die?”
“Hotel Del Luna” aired its final episode on September 1.
