Moonlight Drawn by Clouds cast members Park Bo Gum and Kim Yoo Jung looked awkward in a behind-the-scenes clip of their recent kissing scene.
Named in some territories as Love in the Moonlight, the KBS series features Bo Gum as Prince Lee Young. Kim Yoo Jung plays Hong Ra On, who used to masquerade as an eunuch before becoming the prince?s love interest.
Hesitant to kiss?
The lead character’s? love story had started to develop during the most recent episodes. Fans have gone to social media to express their excitement over the two?s onscreen chemistry.
However, a Moonlight Drawn by Clouds behind the scenes video on Youtube showed Bo Gum and Yoo Jung being seemingly uncomfortable with a kiss for the show?s seventh and eighth episodes.
While filming a kiss scene with his 16-year-old leading lady, Bo Gum joked around and seemed both hesitant and apologetic. “Sorry, I am bad at this,” the 23-year-old actor said. Aside from making funny faces after each kiss, he also wiped off his makeup from Yoo Jung using his thumb.
Even though the clip may seem awkward for some fans, several viewers said that the awkwardness seemingly added to the two?s appeal. Some said that Bo Gum seemed very concerned for his way younger co-star. Others said that his shy antics made him look even more adorable.
There were also comments about Yoo Jung?s highly professional attitude for someone who is still a teenager. ?She was previously known as Korea’s top child actress and [has] now grown up to be a great actress!? a fan posted under the clip
Fan event pushing through?
