Watch: Hani And Yoon Shi Yoon Practice Filming Their Steamy Kiss Scenes In “You Raise Me Up”
wavve’s “You Raise Me Up” is a comedy drama about Do Yong Shik (Yoon Shi Yoon), a man who develops erectile dysfunction in his thirties. When he goes to a urologist for treatment, his doctor happens to be Lee Ru Da (Hani), his first love.
The new making-of film starts off with rehearsals as the two actors practice their movements and discuss ideas with the director, making him laugh with their antics. Hani comments to Yoon Shi Yoon, “I think it’ll feel very precious.” Referring to his character’s dorky charm, he jokingly responds, “Do I just have to leave out my typical smooth abilities [for this kiss scene]?”
After filming the steamy kiss, Hani watches it over and excitedly comments, “It’s so pretty, it’s crazy!” while Yoon Shi Yoon hides out of embarrassment.
As the filming continues, the two complete multiple takes to get the timing right. During one sequence, they both stop and look over at the director at the same time, causing him to laugh. Despite the romantic kiss, Yoon Shi Yoon’s character abruptly gets up, leaving Lee Ru Da confused.
Later, the pair is filming another kiss scene outside when Yoon Shi Yoon shows off his bouquet of flowers, commenting, “These are so much more expensive than you’d think.” He begins to pretend the bouquet is their baby and Hani adorably plays along, saying, “So pretty… Looks like me.”
After rehearsals, the staff notice a boat pulling up, which is meant to damper Do Yong Shik’s romantic plans. The “yacht man” turns out to be KCM, who is making a special appearance in the drama. He shares, “I’m really embarrassed to even call it an appearance. It’s just a brief cameo. They said there was a singing scene, so I came with hopes of being of a little help and I didn’t think much of it, but I’m really nervous.”
Hani and Yoon Shi Yoon then continue filming the scene and joke about how funny the concept is of having the extravagant event in the background. Hani shares that she’s never seen anything like this, and Yoon Shi Yoon jokes, “This drama suits you really well.”
