The stars of “A Love So Beautiful” shared some insights into the filming of their drama!
Kakao Ms “A Love So Beautiful” features a cast led by Kim Yo Han from WEi, So Ju Yeon, and Yeo Hoe Hyun. The drama is a remake of the Chinese drama of the same name and is about a bright and energetic student named Shin Sol Yi (So Ju Yeon) and her childhood friend, Cha Heon (Kim Yo Han), with whom she has had a crush for 17 years. Yeo Hoe Hyun plays Woo Dae Sung, who hides his feelings for Shin Sol Yi and is always there for her.
On December 28, Kim Yo Han, So Ju Yeon, and Yeo Hoe Hyun attended an online press conference for the show along with director Seo Min Jung.
Kim Yo Han described his own character as “a perfect man in school that Shin Sol Yi has had a crush on for 17 years”. He added, “He’s aloof and arrogant, but he’s also a charming guy as he is sometimes kind to others.”
Commenting on the reason he chose to cast, Kim Yo Han said, “Cha Heon’s personality contradicts my own, but I thought that portraying that type of character would not be a bad thing.” He added, “I really liked the character too and wanted to try it.”
Director Seo Min Jung commented, “I thought Kim Yo Han was an acting genius when we were filming.” She added, “When he was told one thing, he would pretend to have been told 10 things.”
Kim Yo Han said of taking on his first acting role, “To be honest, I was nervous and it was difficult because it was my first time acting and I hadn’t studied.” He continued, “However, the director treated me well and my co-stars also gave me tips on set and comforted me so that I could get over it quickly and be relaxed while filming.”
When So Ju Yeon joined the cast, she said she wanted to be on a romance-oriented project and people around her suggested that she would be a good fit for the role. Yeo Hoe Hyun said, “I was sure that I wanted to play a cool character.”
The stars also spoke about their first impressions of each other. “She started a conversation with me first and approached me kindly,” said Kim Yo Han. “That’s why I was able to feel comfortable with her too.”
So Ju Yeon said, “I approached him thinking that I should quickly find out his tendencies or preferences.” She added, “After that, I realized that he was number 1 for a reason and I understood why he is loved by a lot of people.”
Yeo Hoe Hyun added, “I was also very shy, but she came up to me and said,” Let’s talk. “She was a great leader and felt responsible. I thought she had tremendous strengths as an actress.” Since the five lead actors had many scenes together, Ju Yeon worked hard to make sure they were close to get their chemistry going improve.
Yeo Hoe Hyun commented on his character Woo Dae Sung: “He’s not good at expressing his feelings for someone and keeping them hidden.” He added that however, the character is such a pure hearted person that he would risk his life for the woman he likes and give whatever he has that will make his feelings apparent to everyone.
Woo Dae Sung is a great swimmer, and Yeo Hoe Hyun said, “I have never received any special training in swimming.” He said, “I really wanted to practice, but couldn’t do much because of COVID-19.” He said that the athletes who had come to film as stunt doubles had kindly taught him a lot on set. “I worked hard to create great scenes,” said Yeo Hoe Hyun.
On the main points to look out for in the drama, Yeo Hoe Hyun said, “There have been a lot of exciting and funny dramas lately, but our drama is charming in that it warms your heart and makes you feel relaxed.”
So Ju Yeon said, “It’s going to be a lot of fun to see the cast of our actors and classmates.” Kim Yo Han commented, “The school environment and the images on the screen are beautiful.”
“A Love So Beautiful” premiered on December 28th.
