“49 Days” Lee Yeo Won & Jung Il Woo Share…Spoiler Alert!
Before you go any further…If you don’t want to be spoiled about tonight’s upcoming episode, you might as well press the back button. If not, scroll on down!
49 Days’ heroine Song Yi Kyung (Lee Yeo Won) and Song Yi Soo/the ever-popular Scheduler (Jung Il Woo) share a sweet moment on tonight’s episode! The scene is a flashback to when Yi Kyung and Yi Soo were at the happiest moment of their lives. The two share a romantic moment at a bench under cherry blossom trees. In the scene, Yi Soo proposes to Yi Kyung with roses and follows it with a kiss on her forehead. Now a kiss on the forehead has many meanings; but in Korea, it’s a sign of tenderness and love. It’s one of the most endearing kisses – a sign of true affection rather than lust. The audience was already aware of the intimate relationship between Yi Kyung and Yi Soo from last week’s tender kiss while picnicking in the middle of the fields.
The upcoming episode takes the audience back to Yi Kyung’s high school days. The scene is set at Jinan, Jeollabukdo, just southwest of Seoul, with a beautiful lake and cherry blossoms in the backdrop. Yi Soo gets down on his knees and proposes to Yi Kyung with pink roses. He then kisses her sweetly and tenderly on her forehead.
Hundreds of people at Jinan for the Cherry Blossom Festival stood by to watch the two actors film the scene. It took Lee Yeo Won and Jung Il Woo ten takes to get the scene just right. The upcoming episode will also reveal the hidden fate between Han Kang (Jo Hyun Jae) and Ji Hyun (Nam Gyuri).
Lee Yeo Won and Jung Il Woo’s kiss has already been dubbed as the “forehead kiss,” just like Secret Garden’s “foam kiss” between Hyun Bin and Ha Ji Won. Representatives of the drama stated, “The contact between Jung Il Woo’s kissable lips with Lee Yeo Won’s beautiful forehead created the perfect forehead kiss scene we were aiming for. We believe the forehead kiss will receive as much attention as the foam kiss.”
You can catch the highly anticipated forehead kiss scene in tonight’s episode at 9:55PM KST on SBS.
