[Trans] 100712 Eriko Kitagawa: Congratulations To Jejung + Heaven’s Postman Extension

Congratulations To Jejung!

A lot of people have sent over information, and from the replies in the blog, I’ve come to know that “Sunao Ni Narenakute” has received an award from Nikkan Sports. Everyone that has congratulated me, thank you very much. Jejung, who is receiving the supporting actor award, congratulations!!!

Although I’ve already expressed how thankful I am… I didn’t search for the article from Nikkan Sports, so it isn’t fake right? It’s not fake, so thank you so much. I can’t help but say congratulations Jejung!

So thankful, I’m really unfamiliar with Nikkan Sports’ Drama Grand Pix, but being congratulated by everyone makes me really happy (laughs). Everyone, thank you so much. I’m preparing to pass this onto Jejung. Alright, now I’m going to congratulate him.

[Trans] 100712 Musical Actor Kim Dong Ho Talks About U-Know Yunho

Currently performing in the musical “Cat On The Roof”, musical actor Kim Dong Ho (25) has also been invited to participate in the musical “Goong”. He can be considered quite charming in terms of his musical performances, and his stage acting is also very outstanding, so he can be counted as a senior with plenty of stage experience.

This time, he will be assuming the role of the lead character as Prince Shin along with the leader of idol group TVXQ, U-Know Yunho. He humbly expressed that he wanted to take U-Know Yunho, who was challenging musicals for the first time, as a normal person, or someone he could naturally interact with under ordinary circumstances.

The tickets for U-Know Yunho’s appearances were sold out within 2 minutes, which has evoked a huge amount of popularity and attention towards Goong. In response to this, Kim Dong Ho expressed calmly that although he had thoughts of making Yunho a competitor, Yunho did ask of plenty of guidance in terms of his acting from all the actors, so he was really thankful because he himself had areas where he wasn’t sufficient in.

[Trans] 100712 Seung Gi Vs Hyunjoong Vs Yoochun – Drama Showdown

Three top stars of the same age will be battling it out in our living rooms.

Singer Lee Seung Gi, SS501’s Kim Hyunjoong (Leader) and Tohoshinki’s Yoochun will be starring in dramas during the August – September periods. Lee Seung Gi was born in early ’87, and Hyunjoong and Yoochun were born in ’86 are of the same age. They will be competing on the acting stage to see who comes out tops.

Firstly, Lee Seung Gi. His comeback midweek drama “My Girlfriend is a Nine-Tailed Fox” is scheduled to start airing on 11 August on SBS. He plays a man who lives with a nine-tailed fox spirit (Shin Min Ah) whose seal is broken after 500 years.

So far, Lee Seung Gi’s star quality in acting has been recognized via his dramas “Famous Princesses” and “Shining Inheritance.” “My Girlfriend is a Nine-Tailed Fox” will probably serve to establish his position as an actor further.

Next, Hyunjooong, whose acting debut was the role of Yoon Ji Hoo (Hanazawa Rui) from F4 in “Boys over Flowers.” He will be touching girls’ hearts again in MBC’s new midweek drama “Mischievous Kiss.” This drama, like “Boys over Flowers”, is adapted from a popular Japanese comic, and Hyunjoong’s character is expected to shine, just like the actual comic character.

“Mischievous Kiss” will be directed by Hwang In Roe, who also directed “Goong” and is expected to air in August after “Road Number One”.

Finally, Yoochun will be officially kicking off his acting activities in September with the KBS drama “SungKyunKwan Scandal.” Unlike Lee Seung Gi and Kim Hyunjoong, he will not be competing at the same time slots, but the pressure for his debut is still great. Together with Park Min Young, Soong Joon Gi & Yoo Ah-In, Yoochun will be part of “Chosun Dynasty’s F4,” helping to alleviate his burden.

“SungKyunKwang Scandal” has received much interest both locally and internationally, and distribution rights were sold to Japan even before production began.

After Lee Seung Gi, Kim Hyunjoong and Park Yoochun’s drama are over, Super Junior’s Choi Siwon and Tohoshinki’s Changmin will be taking over. Choi Siwon will be featured in SBS’s “Athena : Goddess of War” and Changmin will be acting in “Paradise Ranch.”

T/N: Midweek dramas are actually called “Wednesday-Thursday” dramas, referring to the days that they are being aired on. “My Girlfriend is a Nine-tailed fox” and “Mischievous Kiss” will be showing at the above day slots, while “SungKyunKwan Scandal” will be aired on Monday & Tuesday.

[Trans] 100712 POPEYE August Issue – 3HREE VOICES

Korean men who are gentle, determined, and in their twenties
Jejung and Junsu, who are receiving high popularity in Japan, are 25 years old in average. However, what’s their behaviour like when they are alone? We are here to interview MASAH-san and Yousuke-san who have been their stylists before.

MASAH-san said, “When they debuted in Japan, I thought they were going to be proud and overly confident. Surprisingly, they were very humble and polite. Maybe it was because of Korea’s culture; they were more respectful towards their seniors. They looked pleasantly different and handsome, too. By wearing suits, they showed off their perfect body shape. They are tall and well-built. In conclusion, no matter what they wear, they will still look perfect wearing tailor-made apparel. Being their stylist, I always think, ‘Ah, it was really worth it having this set of clothes worn by them.’ Also, their relationship with each other is extremely good, just like a family. Right now, when I think of it, it brings back good memories. Everyone was so blissful that time.”

Similarly, stylist Yousuke also said, “From their debut until now, nothing has really changed – despite gaining a lot of popularity in Japan, their attitude towards the others remains the same. Yet, they did get better and better in their music. Previously, when we were preparing for a concert in Osaka, not only did Jejung came to me regarding their clothing, he even went to my house to discuss about them. He did that just so the fans will be pleased. Also, the three of them love clothes, especially Yuchun and Jejung. They have a deep interest in Japanese fashion. Being their stylist, I felt very happy.”

Jejung, Yuchun, and Junsu are humble and gentle, and they work with a passion. The stylists felt that the three are very handsome, even though they were men too. Their charms are just irresistible.

Junsu (born in 1987), Jejung (born in 1986), and Yuchun (born in 1986) formed a new trio.
28th of July “3HREE VOICES” DVD Official Release

With the combination of a brown leather jacket and jeans, you’re told a little about his fashion style. The belt with the metal studs enhances the overall feeling. Yuchun, who stayed in the US before he debuted, suits this style very well.

Junsu, who started his solo activities as ‘XIAH junsu,’ wore cashmere and a military-style coat over a knit shirt and rigid jeans, giving it a very simple look. He even said that he wanted to try this style in private.

Jejung, who came to Seoul at the young age of 15 for his dreams, working and practicing at the same time, wore a black jacket and a shirt, combined with a pair of jeans with dark stripes; for accessories, there was only a silver necklace. Still, he wore the clothing with a very regal air.

[Trans] 100712 JYJ – “(Park) Yong Ha-Hyung, Sorry We’re Late.”

“(Park) Yong Ha-hyung*, sorry we’re late.”

The TVXQ trio, Jaejoong, Junsu and Yoochun returned from America and immediately went to Park Yong Ha’s grave, paying their respects to the spirit of the deceased in tears.

Around 1pm on 12 July, Youngwoong Jaejoong, Xiah Junsu and Micky Yoochun visited the Memorial Hall Gyeonggi-do where Park Yong Ha is buried and offered flowers and prayed that his spirit would find happiness in the next world.

As they stood in front of the picture of the deceased and said, “Hyung, we’re really sorry we came so late”, they finally shed tears. This was especially so for Youngwoong Jaejoong, who received a great shock when he received word of his death, as he had made contact with Park Yong Ha while he was in the United States.

The trio finished recording their album the previous night, on the 11th, in LA and returned to the country through Incheon International Airport. Despite their fatigue from their late flight home, they left their houses early in the morning in order to visit the late Park Yong Ha’s grave. At 1pm, the trio arrived at the cemetery and witnesses who were gathered said that they wept silently.

The TVXQ trio had a very close relationship with the deceased. This was because of the bond that was formed between them when they were all active in Japan at the same time.

Youngwoong Jaejoong, who was especially close to Park Yong Ha, was said to have received a huge shock when he received the news suddenly while he was recording for their album in the United States. A close aide said, “Xiah Junsu, Youngwoong Jaejoong and Micky Yoochun were so shocked to receive the news of Park Yong Ha’s death that they were unable to speak.”

On the other hand, Xiah Junsu, Youngwoong Jaejoong and Micky Yoochun worked with well-known American rapper and producer Kanye West for their album and returned home on the 11th after concluding the recording.

With Asia as their primary target market, the TVXQ trio’s album will be distributed under a US record label which has a worldwide distribution network.

The 3 members, who have filed a lawsuit regarding their exclusive contract with their former company, SM Entertainment, have shown that they are a force to be reckoned with, going back to work after a short break. Also, Micky Yoochun will be making his TV debut with the drama “SungKyunKwan Scandal”, which is set to air in September.

[Trans] 100711 ELLEgirl August Issue – Changmin Q&A

We meet again Changmin~
Q&A on more things we want to know.

Q: This time’s theme was “night date”. Where would you want to take a girl during the night?
It would be an amusement park, especially one in Japan. I want the both of us to take a ride on the cable cars at night. If it’s in Korea, then it’s the Seoul Tower. Not only is the night view really pretty, there’s a place where couples can get locks to pledge their everlasting love. It’s really romantic. By the way, I haven’t put up a lock with anyone yet (laughs).

Q: It’s been 2 months since your last photoshoot. How’s Japan after a long break?
To me, Japan is like my other home. It doesn’t feel like I’m coming to a foreign country, it’s feels more like I’m traveling within my country. This period of time, recently, I’ve only been able to stay for two days and a night, so it’s a bit sad. My luggage always takes up roughly one bag only.

Q: Your drama shooting has finished, so are you still training your body?
Since the filming ended, I’ve been eating a lot again and I gained some weight so I have no choice but to train. Everyday, I go to the gym, jog and lift dumbbells, working out for an hour and a half or so. The parts I want to work out the most are my calves. As a man, they’re too skinny.

Q: You’ve been on a break, so have you been going to university?
I can’t go as regularly as normal students, but I do go a bit. The coffee in the school cafeteria is really nice.

Q: Where did you watch the Korean matches for the World Cup?
To be honest, I really wanted to watch it outside while drinking beer, but because I had work, I watched it at home with Yunho, who I live with, his friends and our manager, cheering and making a total ruckus. Aside from the Korean matches, I also wanted to watch the other matches in real time, so I’m very sleep deprived (bitter laugh). But because the World Cup is a festival, I didn’t feel like it was difficult at all!!

Q: Living with another man, Yunho. The pros and cons?
The bad thing is I can’t stand the mess, so I have to clean up the house. It’s not that I hate cleaning, but seeing a dirty house makes me frustrated (laughs). Sometimes I would joke to Yunho, “Should we stop living together?”. He becomes frantic and apologises immediately. About what’s good, because I’m younger, so he always pays for me when we go out. Lucky~ (laughs).

Q: “Friends”, “Family”, “Lover”, “Work”, “Myself”, please rank the five of these.
Right now, I think it’s “Myself” first. Recently, the way I think have changed a little…… If it’s something I want to do, I devote myself to it. Next is “Family”. After that I think it is “Work”, “Lover” and “Friends”. Even so, it might change depending on my mood that day. But, if I have to say, from these five, the ones who give me strength are family and lover. Because if I have those two, I can do my best for my job.

Q: Please give a message to all your fans in Japan!
As I’m in the midst of Korean activities now, compared to before, my activities in Japan have certainly gone down. But I feel that working in Japan is really fun, and I really want to show my various sides through activities in Japan. It might take a little while more, but I would like it if you wait for me!

NEWS! ELLEgirl Japan September issue (7/28 release) will also feature Changmin! Don’t miss it!

[Trans] Chinese Girl Group iMe Korea Training – Encounters Idols TVXQ

During the time that the five honey girls of iMe secretly trained in Korea, they met with an interesting episode. One day during their recording, TVXQ were coincidentally in the room next door recording too. This caused the girls to turn into fangirls, continually asking to see their idols. But they were too shy to go up to them and greet them, so they could only look at their idols from far away.

TVXQ’s serious attitude towards their work allowed iMe to realize that the reason why TVXQ was able to achieve such huge success was only through putting in more efforts than others. iMe expressed that they wanted to learn that spirit from them.

[News] 100716 KBS TV series “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” press conference

From left, actors Yoo A-in, Song Joong-ki, Park Min-young and Micky Yoochun attend a press conference for upcoming KBS TV series “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” held at the show’s set in the city of Hwaseong in Gyeonggi Province, South Korea on July 15, 2010. [Chae Ki-won/10Asia]

The atmosphere at the press conference for KBS TV series “Sungkyunkwan Scandal,” held July 15 on the set in Hwaseong city, Gyeonggi Province, was unusually warm and it was not just because of the beautiful faces of actors Micky Yoochun, Song Joong-ki, Yu A-in and Park Min-young. When Micky Yuchun would pour out ridiculously humorous comments, such as “bed scene with just the bed” or “Sungkyunkwan Sweat-candal,” Song Joong-ki, who was sitting next to him, would subtly provoke him by saying, “If you send me the questions for Micky Yuchun, I will translate his answers for you in the future.” On top of this, Park Min-young, who remarked “When the director saw Micky Yoochun’s body, he asked if TVXQ didn’t have to work out,” and Yu A-in, who says he was “relieved when he saw Micky Yoochun’s body,” try to pit one against Micky as well. Then they say, “We love Micky Yoochun” and make him unable to say or do anything. “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” is a historical romance drama, based on the popular novel ‘The Days of Confucian Scholars at Sungkyunkwan,” about the female-disguised-as-male scholar Kim Yoon-hee (played by Park Min-young), the perfect man Lee Seon-joon (Micky Yoochun), the suave guy Goo Yong-ha (Song Joong-ki) and the animalistic boy Moon Jae-shin (Yu A-in). Below is the conversation between four actors who, even prior to the show’s airing, are showing a strong bond amongst themselves, one that is as solid as their characters who are called ‘The Jeulgeum Foursome.’

Q: Could you each introduce your characters?
Micky Yoochun (Micky): First of all, I am glad to take on my first acting challenge through “Sungkyunkwan Scandal.” From a third-person perspective, my character Ga-rang Lee Seon-joon is an extremely stiff, cold, indifferent and cold-blooded person. But he does have a humane side to him. And it is appealing how he worked so hard to make a name for himself without the help of his remarkable father.
Song Joong-ki (Song): I play Yeo-rim Goo Yong-ha in “Sungkyunkwan Scandal.” The pen name Yeo-rim is made up of Chinese characters ‘yeo,’ which stands for female, and ‘rim’ which means the woods. That is how much the character is into women and booze, and he is very good with them. I wouldn’t have been attracted to the character if that was all there is to him, but there is a different side to him. What impressed me was that he hides the sadness in his heart and pretends to be happy on the outside.
Park Min-young (Park): Kim Yoon-hee is a character who has an insatiable desire to learn but cannot achieve her dream because of her handicap, being a woman living in the Chosun Dynasty period. Then, by chance, she gets to enter Sungkyunkwan in place of her brother. There she meets all these great men, experiences love and friendship, and starts having grand dreams.
Yu A-in (Yu): Gul-oh Moon Jae-shin would be, what we call nowadays, a wild guy or animalistic guy. But when he meets good friends at Sungkyunkwan, he gradually starts changing and grows up.

Q: Micky Yoochun, this is your first public appearance and your first acting challenge since TVXQ announced that it would cease to work as a group. How have you been doing since and what made you take on acting?
Micky: I expected that this question would come up. When there was no activities to carry out as TVXQ, I lived an incredibly normal life. I studied music and practiced acting a lot. I went to see movies like other people do and spent a lot of time with my family, whom I hadn’t spent much time with because of work. And I had been working as a singer all these years so I always had this image as ‘Micky Yuchun’ but through acting, I could become several different people. That was extremely appealing to me.

Q: Did Hero Jaejung or Kimi Hyun-joong give you a lot of advice since they had already debuted as actors?
Micky: I usually don’t talk about uncomfortable things when I meet Hyun-joong. Jaejung didn’t so much give advice but he helped me feel comfortable around this particular time, which is a big turning point in my life. Oh, I told him I was going to the set today and he said, “Go and die.” (laugh)

Q: It must not be easy playing the perfect man Seon-joon.
Micky: It is not hard at all. I have been wanting to live the good-boy life but I was busy working.. I am sorry. (laugh) This is my first dramatic role so it’s not so much difficult but there are many new things that I am learning. I think hard and work hard in order to approach the character Seon-joon. I try to imagine various background information about him that were not all revealed in the original story. For example, how did he get so good at archery and why does he work so hard in everything? Sometimes I even write a diary from Lee Seon-joon’s perspective before I go to sleep. When I eat at home these days, I never start eating until my mother picks up her spoon. Because Seon-joon is a well-mannered young man. (laugh)

Song: Mister Yoochun, you are not supposed to lie when answering a question. You have to tell the truth, right?
Micky: It is the truth!

Q: Then Song Joong-ki, what kind of person do you think Micky Yoochun is?
Song: I am learning a lot from Mister Yoochun in order to create my character Yong-ha. The director said that if I played Yeo-rim the way Mister Yoochun lives his life, I would no doubt win the grand prize in acting. (Looking over at Micky Yoochun) What, you didn’t think I would talk about this? I came here determined to talk about this. (laugh)
Yu: In Micky’s defense, Joong-ki is no pushover. (laugh)
Park: I think Yong-ha is similar to Joong-ki in real life. Hahahaha. There is a scene in the show where Yong-ha is practically living at the gisaengs’ place and there was a big fuss in the editing room. That the actor and the character matched up the best.
Song: I forgot to say this a little while ago, but I personally love Micky Yoochun. (laugh) Of course, I am only saying this because of the TVXQ fans.

Q: I heard that Micky Yoochun is trying to be Seon-joon in his everyday life. How are Song Joong-ki and Yu A-in each approaching their characters?
Yu: Everybody thinks that I have this pretty boy-ish image but, in fact, I have never played such [pretty boy] role. In my previous works, I played unconventional roles like an orphan, a crazy-and-weird boy and a boxer. Jae-shin, in particular, is the most uncommon character. He is extremely tough and unrealistically macho. There are some parts [about the character] that are hard for me to take in, so I am often sorting them out with the director as I work.
Song: In my case, I think I have always played characters who are bright, clean and nice except in the film “A Frozen Flower.” I sometimes mentioned in my previous interviews that I wanted to play a character who had two different sides, and am truly grateful that I get to play this character. Yong-ha is similar to the real me, but I am not saying that we are alike in how we are good at drinking and seducing women. I am incredibly cheerful most of the time, but contrary to how I look I do have some strong aspects inside. And these aspects much resemble Yong-ha. On the outside, Yong-ha looks mellow, happy and enjoys the arts but he reveals a masculine side and composure underneath that appearance.

Q: There is a bed scene between Seon-joon and Yoon-hee towards the latter half of the original novel “Sungkyungkwan Scandal.” Should we be looking forward to that scene in the drama?
Micky: I’m guessing only the bed will be shown since it’s a drama. (laugh) I’m sorry, the crew has told me to stop making these nonsensical jokes.
Everyone: (Stands up) We are sorry.
Micky: Anyway, I think it would be difficult

Q: Then can we look forward to seeing you three male characters bare some skin?
Park Min-young (Park): You must’ve seen us filming a few days ago. (laugh) We shot a skin baring scene two days ago. It’s the scene where Seon-joon and Jae-shin both change out of their clothes thinking that Yoon-hee is a man and I noticed that they both [Yoochun and Yu] didn’t eat anything before going into shoot for that. But the director said something after seeing Yoochun’s body. (Looking over at Yoochun) Should I not say it?
Micky: … (Steals the microphone.)
Park: (Takes back the microphone) The director said “Don’t they make the members of TVXQ work out? Don’t they make you get into shape?” That’s how slim a physique he has maintained. On the other hand, you have Yu who plays a rough and wild character but changes with time. His face gradually becomes darker and his body becomes slimmer. He’s the person that exudes the most becoming figure on set. But I’m not saying that Yoochun has a bad body. He has the body of an rich and elegant person. (laugh) I like Micky Yoochun too! (laugh)
Yu: I worried a lot because my original body frame wasn’t that great and for a rough and wild character, a six-pack and muscles are a given. So I was relieved after seeing Yoochun’s body. (laugh) Honestly, there is pressure to being called rough and wild. That is why I’m in the process of pulling out more of the rough and wild characteristics from within me. (laugh)

Q: Park, you have gotten to work with three goofy pretty-faced guys. What is the image you have of them from on set?
Park: You’re asking me a risky question. (laugh) I was the last one to be cast and I was worried whether they’d be able to pull off their characters because they look so innocent and pretty. But once they put on their wardrobe, I saw that they looked better in them than I expected. In the drama Yoochun comes out as a clean-cut and wholesome guy. He always manages to lie down in an upright position and whenever he looks at someone, he will look into that person’s eyes directly. It’s as if he was born to act. Yu is actually a sentimental person but when we begin shooting, he will put on this piercing look. Everyone is doing well. I guess the main issue is whether I have the potential to pull off my character.

Q: What was it like to play a woman disguised as a man?
Park: It has both its advantages and disadvantages. In my previous project, I played a princess but now I get to wear more comfortable clothes so I get to sit down whenever I want and I can also roll around while lying down. But it’s very hot because it is summer and I’m wearing bandages to hide the fact that I’m a girl. Another con is that I have to stand on a platform while we are filming because I’m short. (laugh) I feel that I’m losing my identity as the shoots go on. The crew treats me like a guy too. (laugh)

Q: You must’ve felt pressured to play your role somewhat differently because a lot of dramas have been about women disguised as men.
Park: I myself have enjoyed watching such dramas so I’m well aware of the fact that because this is about the frequently used subject of a girl in disguise as a guy, it could easily become boring for viewers. “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” is about how one person achieves her dream after overcoming numerous obstacles during the Joseon Dynasty so I’m trying to deliver a certain sincerity by focusing on Kim Yoon-hee as an individual, rather than someone in disguise.

Q: You must have a hard time shooting a historical drama due to the hot weather.
Park: Unlike what they look like, these three men here sweat a lot. To the extent that I can see sweat running down their faces when they’ve shot just one scene. It takes much more time for them to wipe off their sweat than to shoot the scenes. That’s why Micky calls our drama “Sunkyunkwan Sweat-candle.” (laugh) Ridiculous jokes like these are overplayed on set. [Looking at Micky] You have something to say?
Micky: Park is scared of bugs but she’s good at catching them. Hmm, maybe this isn’t it.
Song: That’s not what it’s like. Park caught bugs? I didn’t know. Anyway, we need to say something fun, not say things like these. [Toward reporters] I’m very sorry but from now on, if you direct the question to me, I will hear Micky’s answer first and then translate it for you. And I would like to say one more time that I love Micky Yoochun. (laugh)

Q: You’re still in the early stages of shooting the drama but you all seem very close. Maybe it’s because you’re in the same age range?
Park: The first time I went for script rehearsal, Yoochun immediately said we should speak in lower form. [Koreans use honorific form to people older than them or new people. And I just thought, oh okay, and started talking to him in the lower form. And we’ve become really close because we shot a very romantic scene from the very beginning. I was acquainted with Joong-ki because we’re in the same agency, although I wasn’t close to him, so I called him ‘oppa’ [term Korean women use to refer to men older than them] at first. But he told me to treat him comfortably since we’re the same age so I call him ‘Joong-ki jjang.’ So I think I’ve become close to them much more quickly because of how I’ve been speaking to them in the familiar form, although I’m developing a love and hate relationship with Yoo because he hit my bottom in our first scene together. (laugh) We’re so busy chatting away on set that the director has to tell us to concentrate.

Q: Could you each say a line which best describes the drama?
Song: I can’t remember then line I said for the shoot at 10 this morning. What was it… Ah, it was the scene where Sun-joon enters Sungkyunkwan. I say, “Congratulations on getting in, Lee Suk-joon” which actually contains a lot of meanings.
Micky: Sun-joon thinks Yoon-hee is a guy so he says indifferently, “Take off your clothes.” (laugh)
Park: Then this is how I answer. [Turns to Micky] What?????
Yoo: And then this is what I say after I go into the room they’re in. “Get lost! I said get lost!!!”

[Trans] 100715 Micky Yoochun States, “A Bed Scene May Be Too Much”

TVXQ member Micky Yoochun, who is taking a chance at acting for the first time, has revealed his honest opinions about any upcoming bed scenes.

The press conference for KBS 2TV’s new Monday-Tuesday drama ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ took place on location at the drama’s set in Hwasung.

When asked whether he has discussed the bed scene that appears in the latter half of the original novel with the director and screenwriter, Micky Yoochun said, “Since it’s a drama, won’t only a bed show up in the scene?” He followed this with a bashful smile and said, “I’m sorry for the ridiculous joke. I think that a bed scene may be too much for me.”
