Watch: Shin Min Ah, Kim Seon Ho, And Lee Sang Yi Play “2 Days & 1 Night” Games On- And Off-Camera In “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha”
tvN has shared a new behind-the-scenes look at episodes 7-8 of “Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha”!
The video shows the scene in which Kim Seon Ho, Shin Min Ah, and Lee Sang Yi’s characters end up at the house of Hong Du Shik (Kim Seon Ho’s character). In order to get Hong Du Shik to work as a guide for the show, Ji Sung Hyun suggests that they play variety show games, and if he wins, Hong Du Shik has to agree to work for him. One of them is an homage to “2 Days & 1 Night’s” famous “sand lance extract coffee” game, where two glasses of black coffee are presented, one mixed with sand lance extract.
Kim Seon Ho, as a cast member on “2 Days & 1 Night Season 4,” is extremely familiar with this game, and comments, “This sand lance extract is pretty mild.” Curious, Lee Sang Yi tries to drink the sand lance extract coffee as his character does in the show, but he eventually gives up and the director sympathetically subs in plain black coffee for the scene instead.
Although this doesn’t appear in the show, Kim Seon Ho also teaches his co-stars the “tteok [rice cake]” game, where members take turns saying the syllables of a series of rice cake names but substituting certain actions in place of the syllables that say tteok. This game was invented on “2 Days & 1 Night Season 4.” Shin Min Ah proves to be quite good at the game, to Kim Seon Ho’s surprise.
Throughout the video, Kim Seon Ho and Shin Min Ah share a playful, bantering relationship, with Shin Min Ah threatening to chop his windpipe in a scene that involves their characters fighting and Kim Seon Ho tattling to the director that Shin Min Ah accidentally broke a prop.
At the end, the three lead actors share a brief interview about the location of Gongjin, the town in which the drama is set. Gongjin is a fictional village, but the drama is filmed in Pohang, a city in North Gyeongsang Province on the eastern coast of South Korea.
Shin Min Ah says, “The sea is beautiful, and since it’s summer, the weather, the water, the sunlight, the wind are all beautiful. I think the beauty shows up well in the drama. When I first filmed in the dental clinic location, it was so pretty that I took photos myself. I think that it’s a healing place for both Yoon Hye Jin and me.”
Kim Seon Ho says, “It’s so beautiful and amazing, I think that it’s healing in itself. There were many times when I admired the scenery, but in particular, there’s a real fish market in Pohang, and when we filmed there, I thought, ‘This is really Gongjin.'”
Lee Sang Yi says, “My character ends up shamelessly barging in on Ms. Gamri’s house, but I think he feels a warmth and emotion there. That’s why I think that’s the most healing place. That’s the most memorable location for me.”
“Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha” airs on Saturdays and Sundays at 9 p.m. KST.
