Would it be possible for a divorced couple to fall in love with each other again?

In the recently ended tvN drama Emergency Couple, Choi Jin Hyuk acted as ‘Oh Chang Min’ who falls in love with his ex-wife ‘Oh Jin Hee,’ played by Song Ji Hyo.

In a recent interview with Newsen, however, Choi Jin Hyuk waved off as he said, “It’s not an easy thing for a divorced couple to fall in love with each other again.”

He continued, “Of course, it’s possible and it probably happens somewhere. But among the cast members, we said that it’s possible because it’s a drama, especially because Chang Min and Jin Hee hated each other when they split up.”

As personal thoughts are separate from the drama role, what did Choi Jin Hyuk do to play Oh Chang Min, who falls for his ex-wife?

He said, “I constantly thought to myself, ‘Song Ji Hyo is pretty, she is pretty.’”

When asked, “But isn’t Song Ji Hyo pretty even without telling yourself?”, Choi Jin Hyuk laughed said, “That’s true.”

But it must have been difficult for Choi Jin Hyuk to have a beating heart towards her, like Chang Min did towards Jin Hee, as they always had to face each other at the filming site. Another reason Choi Jin Hyuk had to mind control was the killer schedule required for the drama filming.

Choi Jin Hyuk revealed, “I started counting down from ten days before the last filming. I told myself, ‘seven more times, five more times.’ There was a time when I had to film through three nights in a row. The schedule was a killer, especially for me and Song Ji Hyo.”

Still looking tired, Choi Jin Hyuk said, “The lighting and reflection plates saved us. Our skin got so bad that it was hard to cover it up without the lighting. Thankfully, the camera director was a veteran and was good at that.”

It has been about a week since Emergency Couple ended. When asked if he has become more relaxed now, the actor explained, “I still have some schedules piled up. I will need to carry them out since I postponed them due to drama filming. I have to go for photo shoots, keep official promises I made…I think I’ll be busy for awhile.”
