[Interview] Seo In Guk Knew He Would Become the Bad Guy after Touching Jung Eun Ji′s Breasts
Seo In Guk spoke up about the shocking scene in which he touched Jung Eun Ji somewhere he shouldn′t have on tvN′s Reply 1997.
In a recent interview with enews, Seo In Guk talked about the scene in which he had to put both his hands on Jung Eun Ji′s breasts.
"I was so embarrassed," he said. "I knew that once the scene aired I would become the worst man in the world."
In the scene, which aired in the first episode of the drama, Sung Si Won (Jung Eun Ji) lied to her teacher who was checking her homework that she didn′t get to finish it because she had lent her book to Yoon Yoon Jae (Seo In Guk). Her teacher caught on to the lie, however, and so Si Won was punished for not doing her homework.
Later on Si Won, thinking that she was punished because of Yoon Jae, surprised him with a frog to have her revenge on him. Yoon Jae tried to run away from the frog and in the process, accidentally put his hands on Si Won′s breasts.
After the scene aired, viewers continued to tease Seo In Guk by calling his hands ′bad hands′, and the close encounter made issues across the web.
Seo In Guk said with an awkward smile, "I made many mistakes while shooting the scene. I should have curled my fingers a little when I put my hands on her breasts after coming down the stairs, but I felt so awkward I kept them straight open. I monitored the scene and it didn′t come out well, so I decided I should make it as real as possible."
Of course Seo In Guk had Jung Eun Ji′s permission to carry on with the realistic touch scene. She would′ve been taken aback because she was asked to act in such a scene when it was her first time as an actress, but she still gave her permission.
"Since I couldn′t put my hands on her breasts for real, we thought up a way to make some space by putting air in her jacket," Seo In Guk said. "Then even if I bent my fingers Eun Ji wouldn′t feel harmed and I would be able to put on some realistic acting."
"Since Eun Ji is a female idol and has a lot of fans, I thought a lot of people would feel betrayed. Still, I was satisfied the scene came out nicely," he finished.
Seo In Guk became known as an actor through Reply 1997. In the beginning of the year he had started his full-fledged promotions on this career track with the KBS drama Love Rain as Kim Chang Mo, and managed to relate to his viewers through Reply 1997. Next he plans to appear in the MBC drama Rascal Sons.
"In my next drama I won′t be a nice guy like Yoon Yoon Jae, but I′ll be a playboy that women hate. I don′t want to lock myself up behind one type of role; I want to grow by taking up a variety of roles," he said.
He then added, "I believe this drama will be another challenge for me. I showed my potential as an actor through Reply 1997, and I believe next I′ll be able to show a different part of myself to me and my viewers."
