Lee Seung Gi and Ha Ji Won Film a Kiss Scene
Lee Seung Gi and Ha Ji Won have already finished filming their first kiss scene!
At the press conference for MBC’s upcoming drama The King 2Hearts on March 8, director Lee Jae Gyu said, “Up till I came to this press conference we were shooting. In the morning Lee Seung Gi and Ha Ji Won filmed a kiss scene in bed."
Lee Jae Gyu added, “It wasn’t a kiss on the lips but a kiss on the back of the neck. If [Ha Ji Won and I] were not close, filming a scene like that would have been awkward. Both Ha Ji Won and I are like that. Thankfully she has been so nice and always smiling since our first meeting. I think the viewers will enjoy it.”
Ha went on to say, “Despite [Lee Seung Gi] being younger than me, he was bolder than I was. Though I’ve had more experiences with kiss scene than him, he wasn’t shy at all and was quite bold. I think [Lee Seung Gi] is a lot more mature than I thought. Though I was a bit concerned, Lee Seung Gi did so well we were able to finish the shoot well.”
In addition to director Lee, Lee Seung Gi and Ha Ji Won, they were joined at the press conference by their co-stars, Lee Yoon Ji, Jo Jeong Seok and others to answer questions with the press, raising anticipation for the drama.
