Watch: “Once Again” Cast Dishes On Filming Romantic Scenes + Dances To BTS And Rain In “Ask Us Anything” Preview
Referring to the drama’s explosive popularity, Kang Ho Dong tells the actors, “I bet that even if you went outside wearing a mask, everyone would recognize you now.” Lee Sang Yi cracks everyone up by replying, “Actually, they don’t recognize me.”
Kang Ho Dong proceeds to tease Lee Cho Hee and Lee Sang Yi, who play the fan-favorite couple Song Da Hee and Yoon Jae Suk in the drama, over the possibility of a real-life romance. He first asks Lee Cho Hee, “Isn’t [Lee Sang Yi] lovable?” After she agrees that he is, Kang Ho Dong presses her, “Do you like him?” When Lee Cho Hee shuts him down by saying, “Let’s get to work,” he hilariously replies, “This is my job.”
The cast then talks about filming romantic scenes for the drama, with Oh Yoon Ah sharing, “It was my first time filming a kiss scene and my first time filming an embrace scene.” She goes on to tell an amusing behind-the-scenes story about her co-star Ki Do Hoon, recalling, “He was supposed to kiss me on the forehead, but he kept kissing the crown of my head instead.”
Lee Sang Yi goes on to share tips for how to properly film a “back hug” (embracing someone from behind). Using Super Junior‘s Kim Heechul as his partner for a demonstration, he explains, “In order for it to look pretty, you have to smoothly slip [your arms] in between your partner’s arms and stomach.” The cast of “Ask Us Anything” then attempts to act out what they’ve learned—with hilarious results.
