If someone ask what is the garnish for a drama, that would be its behind the scene (BTS) videos or photos. It gives viewers another layer of excitement in their watching experience as they get some glimpses on how the drama was made together. Warm and Cozy is no exception and MBC has been kind enough by regularly releasing the drama’s bts vidoes and photos.

Let’s check some of the BTS videos of Warm and Cozy!

Video 1: (Angel) Yoo Yeon Seok prepares coffee for crew and staff on set. He is seen grinding the coffee beans himself and later brewing it before serving. He is serving Americano but he said that he can make Latte as well. Can we say yes to that offer please?

Video 2: Baek Geun Woo realizing the ‘uncomfortable’ feeling he is having when he catches Lee Jeong Joo in her sleep. Yoo Yeon Seok and Kang Sora are seen perfecting the fluttery scene at the expense of Yeon Seok’s back strain. Hahaha.. An old man already, huh?

Video 3: Yoo Yeon Seok, Kang Sora and Jin Young fight the forces of nature in form of strong wind and chilly weather to shot some scenes in episode 5.

[20150508] Stories from Warm and Cozy Press Conference

This is the longest week leading up to the debut of Warm and Cozy, but at least we had the press con today to tide us over till Wednesday, 13th May.

The press con was held at 2pm KST at MBC, and after the MC made a brief introduction to the upcoming drama Warm and Cozy, the main supporting cast came on stage one by one. We have B1A4’s Jinyoung coming up first, followed by Lee Han Wie, and then Kim Hee Jung. Lee and Kim share the stage for some photo shoots, as Lee’s character will have an unrequited love for Kim’s character in the drama.

Lee Sung Jae then comes on stage, and takes some photos together with Kim Hee Jung. Kim Sung Oh is up next, and MC mentioned that he had hurt his foot rather badly recently. Kang Sora appears next, and Yoo Yeon Seok joins her on stage for some couple photo shoots. They actually color- coordinated their outfits!

Yoo Yeon Seok is then joined by Seo Yi An, who looks cute in a white kinda puffy dress. All the actors and actresses then come back up on stage for a few group shots, before being joined by the PD-nim for some more group shots.

The cast and PD-nim then returns to the audience seats, before a long teaser clip (which the MC calls it scene highlights) was shown. After the clip ended, the cast and PD-nim took the stage again, and Yoo Yeon Seok and Kang Sora sat in the middle since, of course, they’re the leading cast.

It is then the Q&A session, where reporters field their questions. My understanding of Korean is still quite unrefined, so there’s only this much I can understand. There’s a question to Yoo Yeon Seok, about his character, and he said Baek Geun Woo grew up rich, and so he just does whatever he wants, but he is a warm and kind-hearted guy. Another question is something along the lines of comparing between the roles both Yoo Yeon Seok and Kang Sora had played before, and their current role. Yoo Yeon Seok mentioned Chilbong and that Chilbong had received alot of love, so he wanted a role different from Chilbong. He wanted to shatter the image of Chilbong off him. When the script of Warm and Cozy came, he felt Geun Woo is pretty different from all the other roles he had played, so he decided to take on this role.

Yoo Yeon Seok also mentioned about the difficulties having to act a donggap (same age) with Kang Sora in the drama, because in reality he’s a few years older than her. Kang Sora calls him oppa, and said that they often discuss how to act their roles, and they share a good oppa-dongseng (older brother – younger sister) and good friends relationship.

Yoo Yeon Seok also mentioned Baro (aww, the bromance!), and he believes that Warm and Cozy will give people the warm fuzzy feelings, and he wants to do a production that will make people feel good, and the drama will be taking over the Angry Mom slot (which is why he mentioned Baro). Kang Sora adds on that she thinks viewers will want to visit Jeju after watching the drama.

The PD was asked about the casting choice, and he reveals that the crew decided to cast Yoo Yeon Seok and Kang Sora because of their solid acting skills and experience.

A few other questions were fielded to the other actors/actresses on stage, and one particularly funny question was to Kim Hee Jung. She revealed that each time she meets Lee Sung Jae on set, her character dies (Gu Family Book, Suspicious Housekeeper). Hopefully this being the third time, she wouldn’t die? Especially since they’re supposed to have a loveline here.

Press con wrapped up at slightly past 3pm KST and MBC once again is giving away prizes by releasing behind the scene pictures of the press conference.

[20150502] Sneak Peek Into Baek Geun Woo’s Picturesquely Warm and Cozy Restaurant

Earlier today, a blogger in Naver who goes by the name of Jeju Gyuri (제주 규리) shared several photos of the filming set of Baek Geun Woo’s Warm and Cozy restaurant. My oh my.. The set is simply breathtaking. It’s warm and does look super cozy.

During the blogger’s visit, Yoo Yeon Seok was present on the set with co-star B1A4’s Jin Young. Kang Sora is said to had come later that night. She wrote that she is happy and satisfied to have Yoo Yeon Seok signed for her during the break although she couldn’t take a picture together with him (which she jokingly admitted that her face will look bigger than his).

From the post, we also learned that the probability of two sets being used for the drama filming. The first one is the Bomnal Cafe which appeared in the first trailer as the exterior set of the restaurant. Bomnal Cafe itself is a real cafe located in Jeju Island by the sea. For the shooting purpose, its name plaque has been replaced by the signature “warm and cozy” restaurant logo.

Meanwhile, it appears that the production team uses an entirely different set for the restaurant’s interior. The interior set is said to be so beautiful that it can be made into a real cafe business. The blogger added later on that the picturesque warm and cozy restaurant in the beautiful Jeju will be perfect for the youth love story of a man and a woman.

Start your count down YeoNizens (if you haven’t by now ^o^), Chef Baek Geun Woo’s warm and cozy restaurant might swept off your feet the moment you see it on your screen in 11 days time. The drama will air on 13 May 2015 from 22.00 KST.
