Watch: Kim So Hyun And Jang Dong Yoon Get Playfully Competitive While Filming “Tale Of Nok-Du” Teaser
Based on a webtoon of the same name, “Tale of Nok-Du” is a Joseon-era romantic comedy about a man who disguises himself as a woman (Jang Dong Yoon) and a woman who wants to run away from her apprenticeship as a gisaeng (Kim So Hyun).
The video opens up with both actors cheerfully greeting the camera while wearing hanbok (traditional Korean dress). They prepare to film the part where they play alkkagi (a stone flicking game), but before they start, they are asked about the atmosphere of the set. They reply that it’s great, and Jang Dong Yoon adds, “Is my disguise as a woman revealed for the first time in the making-of video?” Kim So Hyun adds, “Isn’t it the first time it’s officially revealed?” She asks him what he thinks of his disguise, and Jang Dong Yoon answers, “It’s nice. I like it.”
While filming, Kim So Hyun can’t help but burst into laughter at Jang Dong Yoon’s alkkagi skills, and she comments, “You’re really bad at this.” When the crew asks about his skills, he jokes, “You saw it earlier. Are you purposely asking about it? I’m bad at it. I’m worse than Dong Joo [Kim So Hyun’s character].” Kim So Hyun asks, “Are you worse than me?,” and Jang Dong Yoon changes his mind as he answers, “I think I’m better than her.”
The two become humorously competitive with the game, but due to Jang Dong Yoon’s strict rules, Kim So Hyun dismisses the stones and says, “I’m not playing! I’m not playing!” Jang Dong Yoon looks shocked by her outburst but abruptly asks if she’s hot. He fans her with too much enthusiasm and causes her bangs to blow, and Kim So Hyun flatly asks the camera, “What do I do? When will he become mature?”
Watch their playful chemistry in the making-of video below!
“Tale of Nok-Du” premieres on September 30 at 10 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki.
