[Interview] Kim So Hyun Spills on Umbrella Kiss Scene with EXO′s D.O
Kim So Hyun shared her thoughts on the umbrella kiss scene with EXO′s D.O.
Ahead of the release of film Pure Love, Kim So Hyun sat down for an interview at a cafe in Seoul′s Samcheong-dong on January 28, where she said of the ′umbrella kiss scene,′ "If I′m being completely honest, when I saw the script and even right before we went into shooting, I thought it was a little weird." She said, "I even asked the director, ′Does Kyung Soo (D.O) oppa really kiss the umbrella? The other actors also wondered how that scene will play out. I heard the staff was split on it too. The women said he should kiss the umbrella, while the men said he has to do the real thing."
Kim So Hyun continued, "But the director insisted that we had to do the umbrella kiss. So we shot it, but when it came to actually shooting it, it didn′t feel weird at all. It was just sad and unfortunate. I thought Bum Shil′s pure heart in that he likes her but can′t approach her was conveyed well. I think it showed on the screen too, so I′m satisfied."
She also said, "Although we didn′t kiss for real, it felt like our lips were touching, so shooting that scene was really difficult."
Pure Love is a melodrama about first love and friendship, centered on five friends, told through a 23-year-old letter delivered to a radio DJ during a live broadcast. It stars EXO′s D.O, actress Kim So Hyun, Yeon Jun Suk, Lee David, Joo Da Young, Park Yong Woo, Park Hae Jun, Kim Ji Ho, and more and is set for release on February 24.
