In the interview he talked about the support he got from Kim So Hyun during the drama filming.
He also discussed the kiss scene that went viral of the two child-turned-adults actors.
Many people were concerned if the kiss was real, Kim So Hyun is a minor and six years younger than him, he said their lips only touched, he commented,
“I didn’t mean to do it but I had to, we were shooting at night and the director told me to pull her in by the waist. The scene came out pretty well and the director and camera worked made it look very real.
We really didn’t kiss, only our lips touched, but the camera work did make it look very real to all viewers.”
When asked if they’d ever date, he gave such a funny response, he said,
“I’d feel like a criminal if it happened!”
Kim So Hyun is a 1999 liner and is legally (internationally) is 17 years old and recently turned 18 years old, but is still considered a minor and kiss scenes with older co-stars has always been a topic of discussion.
How did you feel about their kiss scene? Did you like it? Or did you think it shouldn’t have happened?
I think they would be a good couple..maybe 2 or 3 years after, it would be good to see them in a modern drama. I guess, the fact that Yoo seung ho is constantly paired to older females has led us to believe that he’s so much older for kim so hyun. We are used of watching Yoo seung ho play an adult person especially in ‘missing you’ and ‘remember’ while we were used watching kim so hyun as a high school student. With that status, watching them could be awkward at first but i believe they could be a good couple after a year or so:)
My comment is a little too late. 3 years after this post was posted dnnsns. But anyway, this is the problem with child actors when they’re trying to transition themselves as adult actors. They have years of experiences in acting but their roles become a bit limited due to their age. Some of them even got stucked playing the same high school roles until their 20s(see, Lee Hyunwoo) and the public mostly remember them as child actors and when they tried to play much older characters, they look like children playing dress up. Their image as child actors are very strong and this was even admitted by Yoo Seungho himself. He said it was very difficult for them to shed their image as child actors, hence, why they started young to challenge themselves with adult roles (and he even played a character as a married man when he was 17).
I understand why Kim Sohyun and her team took this decision to play in much heavier drama. She wanted the experiences and also to break her image as a child actress. But this come to the expense of the child actors’ safety instead. Kiss scene between an adult in 20s with a teenager is of course very problematic and shouldn’t be acceptable. Even Sohyun didn’t know she would have a kiss scene with Taecyeon before that. This kind of scenario shouldn’t happen at all. What S.Korea need is a law that can protect the children from such situation
i ship them both. dont know why. just ship.
I like the drama, it’s worth watching, I like them both, they were actors and actresses and I think what camera does good! As long as it’s for work and for me, they were both good in acting specially seung hoo
