  • Kang Ta: `I Have Never Been Beaten Up This Much`
  • [2005-04-21]
  • "We modeled fighting scenes after action dramas. I have never been beaten up this much before," said Kang Ta, 26, about his new role in the Monday-Tuesday KBS TV2 miniseries `Loveholic,` which is to premiere May 2.

    In `Loveholic,` whose shooting began in early March, Kang plays high-school troublemaker Seo Kang-uk, who falls in love with his teacher, Lee Yul-ju (played by Kim Min-seon), who is four years his senior. In the drama, Kang had to appear in many violent scenes to portray his character -- a problem child who was raised by his grandmother after his parents died.

    "We had to suspend the shooting several times because of the injuries that I received during fighting scenes in the first three episodes. Once I even blacked out during a scene where I was hit in the head with a bar," said Kang.

    Kang said he had a hard time when his face swelled up as he was slapped and beaten more than 20 times in all, but tried to hide his pain from the production crew, who were doing their best to produce high-quality scenes.

    The actor also said he was very sorry to fellow actress Kim, who bruised her face when Kang stumbled over some filming equipment and fell down in a scene where he was running while carrying Kim on his back. The shooting was suspended for a few days due to the two actors` injuries.
