Watch: Jang Dong Yoon And Kang Tae Oh Are Energetic And Playful For Their Kiss Scene In “The Tale Of Nokdu”
The clip begins with Jang Dong Yoon and Kang Tae Oh discussing their kiss scene before the cameras begin rolling. Jang Dong Yoon laughs as he reveals that he is eating a ginseng-flavored candy, and Kang Tae Oh insists, “Give me one too.” Jang Dong Yoon seriously says, “Since we’re in the Joseon era, you can focus if you take in that traditional smell.” Kang Tae Oh responds that if that’s the case, he’ll eat herbal medicine.
Kim So Hyun later appears to say, “I heard [Kang Tae Oh] brought lip balm,” and Kang Tae Oh surprises everyone when he says, “This is my first historical drama kiss scene.” When the trio finally begin rehearsing the scene, Jang Dong Yoon catches everyone off guard with his dramatic acting. When he makes a move to go in for the kiss, all of the surrounding actors shout in excitement.
In between takes, Kim So Hyun dances around in her seat, but she catches herself and says with a serious expression, “Oh I’m sorry, I was too… you know.” Kang Tae Oh stays in-character as he comments, “Nok Soon’s lips were very soft and moist. But she said [my face] felt rough.”
The rest of the video shows Jang Dong Yoon and Kang Tae Oh shooting several takes of their kiss scene. Jang Dong Yoon nags at Kang Tae Oh to close his mouth, and the director remarks that the scene looks strange because Kang Tae Oh is standing so still. The two actors continue their friendly conversation and give each other a hug after they’re done with the scene.
