Eric Moon raves about his favorite kisses in Another Oh Hae Young
Viewers of this summer's surprise hit Another Oh Hae Young quickly fell in love with the leading couple and their stirring romance. The two stars, Eric Moon and Seo Hyun Jin, had so much chemistry with each other that a significant kiss scene was even filmed in one take. Now let's see what Eric, nicknamed "Kiss Master," reveals about his favorite kisses in the drama.
SPOILER ALERT: The kiss scenes discussed here take place in episodes 9 and 13, in case you haven't watched them yet.
1. The first kiss comes with the most impact.
Their first kiss is also the most popular kiss of the romantic drama. It arrived in the 9th episode, and the two stars were able to finish it in one take, without NG, despite the pressure.
Although the audience was prepared to see the couple get together at this time of the story, the powerful kiss scene still caught viewers by surprise.
Let's take a look at the video and then see what Eric says about this kiss scene.
Eric said, "The first kiss scene in the drama was in Episode 9. It was a late one, and it was an intense point in the drama where a lot of pent up emotion was released at once, so I was really happy when I saw it in the script."
“When [the scene finally came around], I was worried because I thought it would be too difficult. Director Song Hyun Wook told us he wanted minimal cuts, and a dirty, no-holds-barred fight between a man and a woman, so Seo Hyun Jin and I made a couple of promises to each other beforehand, and we shot the scene in one take," continued the handsome actor who played the brooding sound specialist Do Kyung, who fell in love with Oh Hae Young (Seo Hyun Jin) despite his best resistance.
Eric also revealed that he and Seo Hyun Jin couldn’t wait to watch the scene during the broadcast.
2. The reunion kiss heals the broken hearts.
This kiss came after the couple broke up. They loved each other dearly, but the obstacles seemed too high to cross, until Do Kyung made one last effort.
Eric explains why he loves this kiss scene: “One of my personal favorites is the scene where Hae Young runs to me in front of the hospital and kisses me. I was the one to take the lead for the wall kiss and the ‘grilled clam’ kiss scene, and this was one where Hae Young initiated the kiss and the emotion. Seo Hyun Jin acted beautifully, and with sincerity.”
“From the point where the background music stops, showing a closeup on Hae Young’s shoes, all the way to the kiss, it was such an emotional scene. Since we went so strong at the start with the wall kiss, all the skinship scenes that followed were natural and comfortable.”
(The "grilled clam" kiss was even Eric's idea.)
Eric has now been nicknamed "Kiss Master" because of the popular kisses in this drama. But he gives all the credit for the success of the drama to his leading lady Seo Hyun Jin, saying that she brought the charming character of Oh Hae Young to life.
He said, "Her acting is that good, and she was so bright on set. Even if she had a lot of lines, and even if she didn’t sleep the night before, she brought a great energy to the set. She’s a jewel.”
We agree! The two stars have made Another Oh Hae Young such a special romance that it's worth savoring now and again.
