Watch: Lee Yi Kyung Jokes About Contributing To High Ratings While Filming Cameo On “Monthly Magazine Home”

JTBC’s “Monthly Magazine Home” shared a new behind-the-scenes look at Lee Yi Kyung’s cameo!

The JTBC rom-com stars Jung So Min as Na Young Won, a woman who believes houses are for living in, and Kim Ji Suk as Yoo Ja Sung, a man who believes houses are for buying.

Lee Yi Kyung has taken on the role of freelance reporter Kwon Min Guk who comes to write a promotional article with the magazine.

The video begins with Lee Yi Kyung and Kim Won Hae sharing great chemistry while filming introduction scenes. During the break, Lee Yi Kyung affectionately pats Kim Won Hae’s stomach and asks, “Why did you lose so much weight?” Kim Won Hae plays along and shares, “No, I’ve gained weight.” Lee Yi Kyung asks again, “Why did you gain so much weight?” but tells him he did a good job regardless.

While waiting to film their scene, Jung So Min and Ahn Chang Hwan can’t stop giggling while joking around. Jung So Min brings out a hidden candy from the pencil case and shares, “I gave it to him, this candy.” Ahn Chang Hwan finishes her sentence by elaborating, “[This candy] wrapper.” Jung So Min sweetly hands an actual piece of candy to the person filming the making-of video, and Ahn Chang Hwan puts the empty candy wrapper back in Jung So Min’s desk.

In another scene, Jung So Min forgets to leave the office immediately, so Kim Ji Suk silently stares at her until she notices. She forgets to leave the second time, causing Kim Ji Suk to awkwardly leave the set himself. Kim Ji Suk asks, “Are you not going to look at the script?” making Jung So Min burst out laughing while apologizing.

Kim Ji Suk asks Lee Yi Kyung, “Do you bring hit ratings?” referring to the high viewership ratings his last drama “Royal Secret Agent” achieved. Lee Yi Kyung comments, “I’m like someone with a spiritual sense.” Kim Ji Suk questions what percentage of the ratings Lee Yi Kyung contributed to in “Royal Secret Agent,” and Lee Yi Kyung replies, “It’s exactly half.” Kim Ji Suk states, “Oh, 7 percent? There wasn’t even a second of hesitation. Weren’t there three [main actors]? Shouldn’t it be divided evenly in three ways then?” Lee Yi Kyung laughs and jokingly states, “How can it be divided evenly?”
