KNTV Guide : The kissing scene in ep. 1 between the both of you became the talk of the town.
Yoo Yeon Seok : The sudden kiss scene made the viewers surprised. Dong Joo, whom I played, has totally fallen in love with Seo Jung sunbae who appeared to be so cool when saving a patient. And he also felt the vulnerability as a woman when seeing the senior, whom he thought as having a much stronger mind than him, crying secretly, and he kissed her impulsively.
Seo Hyun Jin : Seo Jung whom I acted as, had a guy whom she was seeing. She had a passive relationship with that man. And if with him she had a mixed of respect and love kind of relationship, then I think with Dong Joo she had a fiery love.
Although they were in a relationship where they always quarrelled hatefully, but I think if she really hated him, she wouldn’t quarrel with him. Her heart was shaken as they kissed.
It’s a very beautiful scene.
Yoo Yeon Seok : We shot the kissing scene right after we started filming. So to somewhat make the scene a little smoother, I brought some wine to the filming set. We drank the wine together and filmed the scene. The staffs shot the scene beautifully, with different passions from those at surgery scenes.
Seo Hyun Jin : The director told me that “The kiss scene cannot be unconvincing”.
“Because it’s an important scene from now on leading to the conclusion of episode 20, we must shoot it beautifully so it doesn’t feel random” he said.
So together we did our best to film it.
