Jung Seok Won Responsible for Majority of ′Rooftop Prince′ Bloopers
A recent blooper cut from SBS’ Rooftop Prince gave viewers a big laugh.
The blooper scene was revealed during the April 16 broadcast of SBS’ Good Morning and proved to be funnier than the original behind-the-scenes from the popular drama.
Although Rooftop Prince has comic, melodramatic and mystery elements, as a predominantly comedy drama, there seemed to always be a lot of laughter on the set and the bloopers scenes were unavoidable.
Among them, Jung Seok Won - who was the cause of much laughter the more he tried to show his serious side – proved to be the main culprit behind the many blooper scenes. In one scene, Jung induced the laughter of his costars by swallowing the gargled water after learning how to brush his teeth from Park Ha (Han Ji Min). In another, Jung couldn’t hold his laughter during a scene featuring Han’s impersonation, causing yet another blooper scene.
In particular, the viewers’ attention was drawn to the behind-the-scenes secret of the steak cutting scene involving Woo Yong Sool’s sword. In the dinner scene, Woo (Jung) showed his fabulous steak cutting skills using his sword. However, it was quite different in reality during the shooting as Jung was seen noisily swinging the sword in the air. Moreover, his excessively serious expression was the cause of another blooper scene.
Meanwhile, Rooftop Prince recorded a 12.5 percent viewership rating for the April 5 episode (according to the AGB Nielsen Media Research) and claimed the top spot in its Wednesday-Thursday drama timeslot.
