Watch: Jang Nara And Lee Sang Yoon Talk About Their First Impressions Of Each Other And Most Memorable Scene From “VIP”
“VIP” is about a task force in charge of taking care of VIP customers of a department store, and it tells the stories of working women surviving in the workforce and their marriages.
The video is conducted in an interview style manner that parodies the couple variety show SBS’s “Same Bed Different Dreams,” and it begins with the actors introducing themselves. Jang Nara will play Na Jung Sun, a member of Sungwoon Department Store’s VIP management team, and Lee Sang Yoon will take the role of Park Sung Joon, the leader of Sungwoon Department Store’s VIP management team and the husband of Na Jung Sun.
In the interview, Lee Sang Yoon reveals that Jang Nara was very shy and introverted during their first meeting. He shares that he suggested that the two talk informally from the first day they met in order to get closer to each other as fast as possible, even though Jang Nara normally has difficulty talking informally to others. Jang Nara says, “You did really well. If he hadn’t [done that on the first day], it would have taken a really long time [to get close].”
To Jang Nara’s surprise, Lee Sang Yoon says she’s hard to get along with at first, but once people overcome her initial barrier, she acts even more friendly. Meanwhile, Jang Nara shares that Lee Sang Yoon has a cute, younger brother like charm. Lee Sang Yoon also comments, “Since [Jang Nara] looks really young for her age, I was worried if we could look like a couple.”
On the most memorable scene that they filmed, Lee Sang Yoon picks the couple’s bed scene that they filmed that morning, describing how it was difficult to act like a natural couple and portray the scene realistically while sticking to broadcasting standards.
Furthermore, Jang Nara picks “innocence” as Lee Sang Yoon’s charm while Lee Sang Yoon says that Jang Nara’s charm is that she gets highly immersed into her role. They even jokingly share that Jang Nara got angry at Lee Sang Yoon during their first meeting because she was so immersed into the script. Lee Sang Yoon explains, “Suddenly it was as if Na Jung Sun was talking to Park Sung Joon.”
Finally, the actors share that they had a blast while filming, expressing their hopes that viewers enjoy the upcoming drama.
“VIP” will premiere on October 28 and will be available on Viki. Watch the full video below!
