Watch: Lee Ji Ah Has Fun Speaking English And Doing Fight Scenes Behind The Scenes On “The Penthouse”
On December 28, SBS released a new behind-the-scenes video from “The Penthouse.”
The behind-the-scenes video begins with the scene in which Shim Su Ryeon (Lee Ji Ah) and Logan Lee (Park Eun Suk) confront Joo Dan Tae (Uhm Ki Joon) with his daughter, Joo Hye In (Na So Ye), who is in a wheelchair.
In this scene, Shim Su Ryeon and Park Eun Suk speak English. Lee Ji Ah and Park Eun Suk both spent part of their childhood in the United States, which makes their English lines sound fluent and natural. Eugene is also in the scene and knows English because she grew up in Guam, an American territory, prompting Uhm Ki Joon to jokingly complain that he is the only one there who does not understand all the English lines being thrown out around him.
In the next scene, Lee Ji Ah and Uhm Ki Joon film their violent fight scene after Shim Su Ryeon hides Joo Hye In away. The two actors are careful about each other’s safety and full of laughter compared to the tense emotions of the scene. After Uhm Ki Joon pretends to fling Lee Ji Ah at the wall, he tells her that she should hold her balance so that it doesn’t look like she’s fainting in his arms. In another moment, Lee Ji Ah plays with a rubber prop that she is meant to hit Uhm Ki Joon with, and later bursts out laughing when it bounces loudly off his head.
