Watch: Moon Ga Young Reacts To Cha Eun Woo’s Aegyo Behind The Scenes Of “True Beauty”
tvN’s “True Beauty” has released new behind-the-scenes footage from filming!
On January 28, the popular drama adaptation of the hit webtoon shared a cute new behind-the-scenes video of its cast on set. The clip begins with the Lim family rehearsing a scene by running lines together before a take.
When Moon Ga Young recites her line asking why she isn’t allowed to do the things she wants to do and be with the person she wants to be with, her on-screen mother Jang Hye Jin breaks character to remark sadly, “But this is so pitiful.” Her on-screen husband Park Ho San teasingly replies, “Just say your lines.”
However, Jang Hye Jin goes on to share that she struggled with her lines berating Lim Ju Gyeong, revealing, “I was wondering why I was having a hard time memorizing my lines for this scene, and I think it’s because I feel too sorry [for Lim Ju Gyeong] to say these lines to her.” Playfully pretending to tear up, she adds, “I even cried while rehearsing.”
After filming a take of the emotional scene, Jang Hye Jin turns to Park Ho San and praises Moon Ga Young’s acting. Pointing to Moon Ga Young, she marvels, “She’s so good,” and Park Ho San agrees, “She pulls it off so easily.” He then jokingly tells Kim Min Ki to learn from his on-screen sister, who majored in acting in college in real life, by saying, “To get into college, you need to act like this.”
Later, Jang Hye Jin praises Kim Min Ki by affectionately pointing out, “He’s improved so much.” Park Ho San chimes in, “I think he’s gotten taller, too,” and when Jang Hye Jin agrees, Kim Min Ki is adorably unable to hide his excitement as he exclaims, “Really?”
The clip then moves on to Hwang In Yeop and ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo filming the scene in which their characters take down defaced posters of Lim Ju Gyeong at school. After successfully wrapping up the scene, Cha Eun Woo briefly takes on the role of cameraman as he personally films the classroom scene in which Yoo Tae Hoon (played by Lee Il Joon) does aegyo to cheer up his girlfriend Choi Soo Ah (played by Kang Min Ah).
In the next scene, Moon Ga Young comments that she has the “Ottoke (What Should I Do) Song” stuck in her head. When asked if she’s seen the video of Cha Eun Woo singing the aegyo song, she replies with a laugh, “Yes, I saw it. As expected, he did a great job.”
The video then cuts to Cha Eun Woo shyly filming the scene in question—and getting adorably embarrassed once he’s done.
Finally, the clip ends with Cha Eun Woo and Moon Ga Young filming the scene in which Lee Su Ho gives Lim Ju Gyeong a piggyback ride after she gets tired of walking. The two co-stars meticulously practice how Cha Eun Woo will pick her up and carry her, and they finally figure out how to get it just right.
Once the cameras stop rolling, Moon Ga Young asks, “Am I heavy?” and Cha Eun Woo jokingly replies, “Did you think you’d be light?” However, he later adds that she wasn’t hard to carry at all, commenting, “She feels like she’s eaten exactly three dumplings.”
In order to protect his ears from the cold, Cha Eun Woo dons a pair of earmuffs, and Moon Ga Young jumps at the opportunity to tease him. Joking that he looks like a street vendor selling roasted chestnuts, she playfully asks, “How much are the roasted chestnuts?”
