Watch: “Sh**ting Stars” Cast Gives Yoon Jong Hoon A Birthday Surprise + Welcomes Guest Stars Song Ji Hyo, Moon Ga Young, Kim Dong Wook, And Choi Ji Woo
“Sh**ting Stars” has released behind-the-scenes footage from Episodes 7 and 8!
tvN’s “Sh**ting Stars” is about the people who work behind the scenes in the entertainment industry cleaning up the messes created by the stars. The drama depicts the realistic story of people who stand behind the celebrities and shed blood, sweat, and tears to make them shine like stars in the sky.
At the start of the clip, Star Force Entertainment’s PR team shows off their close friendship as they joke around during rehearsals. Later, they film CNBLUE’s Lee Jung Shin’s housewarming party. As the cast listens to the rules of the drinking game they’re about to play, the competitive bunch gets into a hilariously heated discussion even before the game starts.
Kim Young Dae and Yoon Jong Hoon film the scene where they’re sharing a meal and discussing Gong Tae Sung’s love life. Kim Young Dae quietly shares, “I…like someone…” Yoon Jong Hoon responds, “It’s Han Byul, right?” Kim Young Dae catches him off guard as he responds, “Nope. It’s you.” After a quick countdown, all the staff members surprise Yoon Jong Hoon by singing “Happy Birthday,” as the actor’s birthday fell on a day of filming.
The next bit of the video gives a look at filming with the star-studded lineup of guest appearances for “Sh**ting Stars,” including Song Ji Hyo, Moon Ga Young, Kim Dong Wook, and Choi Ji Woo. Song Ji Hyo starred in “The Witch’s Diner” while Moon Ga Young and Kim Dong Wook starred in “Find Me in Your Memory,” both of which are directed by Lee Soo Hyun, the director of “Sh**ting Stars.”
While preparing for their upcoming scene, Lee Jung Shin asks Lee Sung Kyung, “Were you always tall?” Lee Sung Kyung answers, “In ninth grade, I suddenly grew like 10 centimeters (approximately 4 inches),” which Lee Jung Shin immediately relates to. He hilariously adds, “In ninth grade, I was suddenly able to see the top of the fridge.”
The two begin sharing random tips to grow tall, with Lee Jung Shin explaining, “I slept like 18 hours at a time.” Lee Sung Kyung agrees and continues, “I slept a lot and ate a ton.” When asked if they drank a lot of milk, which is commonly assumed to be correlated with height, the two stars instantly answered, “Why would we drink milk?”
Following their special appearance, Moon Ga Young shares, “I’m so happy we got to meet our Ha Jin-Jung Hoon couple [from ‘Find Me in Your Memory’] for the first time in awhile. Right? I’m so glad to have been able to greet you through this opportunity and we will support ‘Sh**ting Stars’ so that it does well.”
Song Ji Hyo comments, “I met with director Lee Soo Hyun today for the first time in awhile and came to cheer her on. For the first time in awhile, I was able to meet with staff members from the past so it was a very happy time. Be successful, ‘Sh**ting Stars’!”
