Was Park Bo Gum Nervous About His First Kiss Scene on “Reply 1988”?
On February 4, he met with a writer from Kookmin Ilbo at a café in Seoul and spoke of his time on the show. The writer remarked, “Many people pick your kiss scene as one of the most memorable on the show,” to which Park Bo Gum smiled shyly and said, “I was really fascinated by that response as well.”
He added, “Both Hyeri and I were nervous about this scene. We wanted people to watch it and feel that sense of youth and emotion. I was really nervous but the director did such a good job and everyone from the shoot took good care of us so I think it was able to come out well because of that.”
The second hotel kiss scene received an even greater response from the viewers. For that scene, Park Bo Gum remarked that he was still nervous but tried to appear calm.
“I had heard that in those kinds of situations, the male actor should take the lead and take care of the female actor,” he said. “So although it was the first time for me to do such a kiss scene, I worked hard so that it would come out well with Hyeri.”
Despite his nervousness, there were a lot of words that came out in support of him. The netizen responses to his kiss scene were glowing, with one even calling him the expert of kissing. “The expert of kissing? Me? Haha,” Park Bo Gum responded by throwing his head back and laughing at that comment.
He added, “I was so thankful for the positive response that it received. I heard that the dream kiss scene received the most views on the Internet and I was so fascinated by that.”
Park Bo Gum debuted in 2011 with the movie “Blind,” and has raised his stardom with the recently concluded “Reply 1988.” While he has received many offers for his next role, it is said that he has not decided on anything yet.
