Watch: Cast Of “Youth Of May” Celebrate Go Min Si’s Birthday On Set
KBS has released behind-the-scenes footage for “Youth of May” episodes three and four!
“Youth of May” is a drama about the romance between Hwang Hee Tae (Lee Do Hyun) and Kim Myung Hee (Go Min Si) set against the turbulent background of May 1980, a historically significant time period in South Korea. Lee Sang Yi and Geum Sae Rok co-star as Lee Soo Chan and Lee Soo Ryun, siblings from a wealthy family background who have different goals in life.
The video begins as Go Min Si first notices the camera and points it out to Lee Do Hyun, immediately making him bow. As they’re joined by Geum Sae Rok, the three all eagerly wave. Later, Geum Sae Rok is busily taking pictures of staff members, who adorably have stickers with her face from a coffee truck plastered on their clothes.
As they film a scene at the dinner table, Lee Sang Yi looks after Go Min Si by putting a piece of galbi in her bowl. When the cameras stop rolling, she surprises him by commenting, “Did you know you gave me a carrot?”
Later, Go Min Si catches sight of Park Se Hyun’s extravagant transformation and struggles to keep in her laughter while filming. The director comments to Lee Do Hyun, “I think it’s okay to flinch. Seeing her today, I think you would flinch.” Go Min Si also pulls out her polaroid camera, showing Lee Do Hyun how it works and taking photos of her cast members.
During a break for their hospital scene, Lee Do Hyun states to Go Min Si, “Now that I look at it, your height is the same as mine sitting down.” Geum Sae Rok adds, “Right, she’s so small! She’s so cute, I’m going to die.”
Geum Sae Rok then tells Go Min Si and Lee Do Hyun how much she’s enjoying the drama “Sweet Home,” which the two appear in as siblings. She explains that she’s on episode three and Go Min Si comments that she’s really cherishing the experience. Lee Do Hyun jokingly responds, “That just means she’s lazy.”
On February 16, the cast and crew help celebrate Go Min Si’s birthday, which was the day before. After a brief moment posing with her cake and saying thank you, she then immediately transforms back into Myung Hee as she says, “Should we do rehearsals now?”
Lastly, Go Min Si and Lee Do Hyun film a scene with Park Se Hyun and her on-screen father Heo Jung Do. Lee Do Hyun and Heo Jung Do showcase their incredible chemistry and hilarious antics, causing Go Min Si to struggle to contain her laughter.
