Yang Se Jong, Woo Do Hwan, And AOA’s Seolhyun Smile Through The Challenges Of Filming A Historical Drama
“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 premiered on October 4 and caught viewers’ attention with its strong and intense storyline, as well as the relationship between Seo Hwi (Yang Se Jong) and Nam Seon Ho (Woo Do Hwan), who go from being the best of friends to mortal enemies. Caught between them is Han Hee Jae (Seolhyun), who is searching for her own fate.
In the behind-the-scenes photos, however, the actors are all smiles when the cameras aren’t rolling. The actors prepare for action scenes on horseback while discussing details of the sequence with the director, Seolhyun closely monitors her own performance, Yang Se Jong grins as he gets into position on an outdoor set, and Woo Do Hwan calmly gets into character as he rehearses a sword-fighting scene.
The production staff stated, “The actors, who focus intensely on their characters and participate wholeheartedly in filming, are the main source of power behind a well-made period drama. The atmosphere on set is fun yet focused. Please look forward to their synergy as the story really gets started in Episode 3.”
“My Country” airs every Friday and Saturday at 10:50 p.m. KST.
