Watch: Woo Do Hwan, Yang Se Jong, AOA’s Seolhyun Fondly Talk About Their First Day On Set Of Upcoming Drama “My Country”
JTBC’s upcoming drama “My Country” has released a new behind-the-scenes clip of its cast!
“My Country” takes place between the end of the Goryeo Dynasty and the beginning of the Joseon Dynasty and tells the story of the conflicts that arise due to people’s desire for power and protection. The drama stars Woo Do Hwan, Yang Se Jong, AOA’s Seolhyun, and Jang Hyuk.
The clip begins with Yang Se Jong talking about his first day on set. He recalls having to run around a lot after his character becomes entangled with Seolhyun’s character, who is being chased by soldiers. The actor fondly says, “That’s when the trio’s relationship begins.”
The camera later pans to Seolhyun, who stares at a poster of her character hanging on the wall, and she remarks, “I think [the cast] took some time getting used to the set.” She later expresses concern about having to film a scene in which her character headbutts Yang Se Jong. He reassures her that it’s fine, and she films the scene without any trouble. Seolhyun comments, “Despite it being the first time [we filmed together], Se Jong and I were able to work well together, and the director helped point out all the details. Even though it was the first shoot, I remember having fun.”
Woo Do Hwan reveals that he only had to shoot one scene on his first day. He smiles as he says, “I asked the director, ‘Director, isn’t this just the test run?’ and he replied, ‘The first day on set is usually like that.’ So I told him I’d see him later and went home.” Although he says this casually, the clip later shows Woo Do Hwan asking the director if they can shoot one more scene, showing his excitement for the drama.
The three actors finally shoot a scene together and share ideas on how Seolhyun should exit the scene. They laugh as they act out the scene themselves, and Seolhyun takes their advice when the cameras begin rolling.
