  • Jang Geun Seok: ‘I Focused All My Energy on Filming Kiss Scene’
  • [2011-10-07]
  • During the production presentation of the movie “You Are Pet,” which was held in Lotte Cinema Picadiri on October 5, actor Jang Geun Seok -- who is very popular in Japan -- remarked about a kiss scene with actress Kim Ha Neul, “I filmed a kiss scene for the first time during my acting career. We usually just place our lips on the other actor’s lips when we film a kiss scene on TV, but you might be able to see a huge difference when you watch our movie. We focused all our energy on filming the kiss scene.” His comment created a friendly atmosphere during the production presentation, which is usually very formal.




    “You Are Pet” is a romantic comedy movie about a love story between a career woman named Ji Eun (Kim Ha Neul), who is not skilled at having relationships, and a handsome young man (Jang Geun Seok), who wants to become a dancer. They come to live together by forming a strange relationship, one of "pet" and "owner," and they will have a romance while living together. The movie is based on the original cartoon with the same title published by Japanese company Kodansha.




    In the movie, Jang Geun Seok will play a character who was once a capable ballet dancer and wants to become a musical actor and choreographer. He joked, “Actually, Kim Ha Neul kissed me too enthusiastically, which was different from the original script -- maybe because she wanted to satisfy her own desire through filming. It was my first time to film a kiss scene, and I definitely learned many things from this experience.” He laughed and continued, “She also showed her enthusiastic response in exposing scenes. There is a scene in which she washes me, and I was very surprised to see that she prepared for the scene for almost one week. In addition, she prepared thoroughly for the kiss scenes and bedroom scenes. At some moments, I felt scared.”

    Kim Ha Neul refuted his comments, saying, “It is ridiculous.” She explained, “I am older than him, and I thought that I needed to give an accurate impression of a woman in my age, so I tried my best during filming.” In addition, Jang Geun Seok expressed his feelings about appearing with Kim Ha Neul in the movie, saying, “I have been waiting for such a long time to work with her. When I heard that I would appear with Kim, I was very happy.”




    Kim Ha Neul also said, “When I choose a work to appear, the harmony with my counterpart is a very important factor. Jang Geun Seok perfectly matches the character whom he plays in the movie.” The director Kim Byung Gon, who came from the directing team of world famous director Krzysztov Zanussi, directed the film.

    “You Are Pet” will be released in November in Korea and next year in January in Japan.
