‘Misaeng’ PD Uses Computer Graphics to Tone Down Im Si Wan′s Rosy Ears and Lips
With viewers noticing his rosy ears in the drama, ZE:A’s Im Si Wan and director of tvN’s Misaeng talked about Im Si Wan’s ears.
On November 5, the cast and production staff of Misaeng held a press conference at Seoul Square in Namdaemun. Kim Won Seok PD, Im Si Wan, Lee Sung Min, Kang So Ra, Kang Haneul, Kim Dae Myung, and Byun Yo Han attended.
During the press conference, the subject of Im Si Wan’s ears was brought up as many viewers noticed that his ears get very red in the drama.
“After taking on the role of Jang Geu Rae, I’ve become shy. My ears show it too by turning red. Even now, I’m nervous” explained Im Si Wan, on his shy drama character. “Some people look at it and say I’m acting even with my ears. But more than acting, that’s just me getting startled, which is why it comes off so naturally.”
Kim Won Seok PD also added that some viewers thought the production staff makes Im Si Wan’s ears redder using computer graphics.
“Im Si Wan’s ears and lips are just really red. We’ve somehow become a production staff that even transforms an actor’s ears,” said the PD. He shared that the production staff actually works on toning down the redness for the drama.
Im Si Wan said that it won’t be easy, but he’ll try to tone down the redness in his ears.
Misaeng is about the realistic stories of the people working in the corporate world.
