With less than a week left until the MBC drama Playful Kiss airs, anticipation continues to build, and a press conference was held at the Seoul Imperial Palace Hotel this afternoon.
Kim Hyun Joong (who will be playing the drama’s leading male role, Baek Seung Jo) expressed his feelings about the kiss scene with his female partner in the drama, Jung So Min (who will be playing the character, Oh Hani):
“I rarely had eye contact with her, and the kiss happened when we were both in a situation where we didn’t have any lines. It was very awkward. But the awkwardness was essential for that scene, which fits perfectly with the storyline. It was a ‘Playful Kiss’."
Kim Hyun Joong also expressed how he felt about acting as Baek Seung Jo:
“It wasn’t easy acting out the character of a genius with an IQ of 200.
The script was packed with words that I wasn’t familiar with. Because there were several words that I didn’t know, I had to study a lot.”
The drama will make its debut on September 1st through MBC.
