Why Was Lee Hyun Woo′s Back Hug with IU Cut from MV?
Before he was the loveable Cha Eun Gyul on SBS’ To the Beautiful You, rising star Lee Hyun Woo appeared in IU’s You and I music video.
Coming out on August 28’s broadcast of SBS’ Strong Heart, Lee Hyun Woo explained how his awkwardness got himself edited out of the music video.
“I was given the chance to work with IU and upon receiving the offer, I immediately took it because it was IU,” explained Lee Hyun Woo.
“Before the actual music video shoot, I received IU’s contact information through T-ara’s Jiyeon, and exchanged a few text messages. But when it came time to shoot the music video, IU greeted me brightly, but I ended replying back formally and suddenly things got awkward.”
One of the scenes in the music video included a back hug by Lee Hyun Woo and the young actor expressed his nervousness in filming the scene with IU.
“When the director suggested it, I thought it would be a good chance to get closer to IU, but the back hug ended up looking so awkward that it got completed edited out.”
A picture of the back hug was brought out, making the people in the studio laugh.
The MCs remarked, “It looks like you’re picking up a mannequin.”
