Watch: Kim So Hyun Playfully Knocks Jang Dong Yoon Around In Rehearsals For “The Tale Of Nokdu”
The two actors are currently starring in the KBS drama “The Tale of Nokdu,” which tells the story of a man who dresses up as a woman to gain access to a mysterious all-female community, and a gisaeng-in-training who wants to pursue a different path in life.
The behind-the-scenes video released on October 9 begins with Kim So Hyun and Jang Dong Yoon rehearsing a scene in which Dong Joo grabs Nok Du by the collar and pushes him up against a wall. After rehearsing the scene a few times, Jang Dong Yoon goes to have his makeup retouched and Kim So Hyun jokes, “He’s having so much fun dressing up as a woman. He was so excited to have his makeup done.”
Jang Dong Yoon suggests that his makeup go even harder for the scene and ends up smearing red lipstick all over his face. Kim So Hyun finds this hilarious and says, “Nok Du is so pretty,” but quickly changes her mind when he smiles like the Joker and creeps her out.
Later in the clip, the two actors rehearse a scene in which Dong Joo almost pokes Nok Du’s eye out through a paper screen. The director tells Jang Dong Yoon to make his acting more dramatic, and a crew member jokes, “Dong Joo should actually poke him in the eye.” On the other side of the screen, Kim So Hyun remarks, “I think my finger has gotten the hang of it now” and jokes to a staff member, “Do you want to poke him instead?”
Jang Dong Yoon says to the camera, “It’s a little scary because Dong Joo will actually poke me. In fact, I think I’ve been poked in the eye three times already. My life is in danger but you can hear her laughing behind the screen.” Kim So Hyun says on the other side, “I think I felt his eyeball that time. This is very thrilling.”
