Watch: “River Where The Moon Rises” Cast And Crew Play Pranks On Each Other On Set
KBS released a fun behind-the-scenes video of the “River Where the Moon Rises” cast and crew playing silly pranks on each other between takes.
The jokes begin when Kim So Hyun accidentally messes up a take by looking up too fast and she quips, “I did that so I could leave faster.” On the throne, Kim Bup Rae (who plays King Pyeongwon) closes his eyes to focus, but Lee Ji Hoon playfully sneaks behind him and makes finger hearts before tapping on the shoulder and ducking down behind the throne. On his second attempt, however, Kim Bup Rae catches him red-handed.
Later, Lee Ji Hoon tells the director, “I wanted to buy a lot of Pepero, but they were all sold out.” The director asks, “Is it Pepero Day?” and Lee Ji Hoon confirms that it is. Pepero Day is November 11 in Korea and it is custom to give Pepero (thin cookie-like sticks dipped in chocolate) to one’s friends. The director says sternly, “You should have given some to Kim So Hyun,” and Lee Ji Hoon says that he did. In mock affront, the director says, “So I was the only one you didn’t give them to?”
Kim So Hyun finds herself cracking up in fits of laughter even in a serious scene like when Choi Yu Hwa is being dragged by guards. Choi Yu Hwa and the other cast members catch her infectious laughter and laugh too, while the director jokes, “It’s coffee time!” (The scene involves drinking a potion that looks like “coffee”.) The reason for Kim So Hyun’s frequent laughter is shown when the director throws himself into each scene, over-acting each character’s part and shouting all the lines passionately to demonstrate to the actors what he wants to see.
