“The Glory” Actor Kim Gun Woo Unintentionally Draws The “Ire” Of His Castmates During A Live Press Conference
The Glory actor Kim Gun Woo unintentionally “disappointed” his castmates during a press conference.
On March 8, Netflix held a press conference for the upcoming second season of its hit K-Drama, The Glory. During the press conference, fans got a chance to ask the actors questions, and the actors, in turn, shared the backstory behind several memorable scenes.
Kim Gun Woo, who is receiving rave reviews for his portrayal of Son Myeong Oh in the drama, picked the scene depicting characters Park Yeon Jin and Ha Do Young’s wedding as his most memorable.
While explaining his reason for picking the scene, the actor unintentionally drew the ire of his castmates. The actor stated that when they filmed the scene, the actors weren’t that close.
There weren’t any special episodes (incidents), but I believe at the time (of filming the scene) we weren’t that close to one another. But it was very fun (filming), and we laughed a lot.
— Kim Gun Woo
Fellow castmates Kim Hieora and Jung Sung Il then interjected and jokingly yelled, “What are you talking about? We were all close,” filling the room with laughter. Kim Hieora then stated, “What do you mean? By then, we were all very close. We even took a lot of pictures.” Jung Sung Il then followed up by expressing his disappointment.
We became close way before then. Ah, I guess you were the only one that was guarding your heart.
— Jung Sung Il
When the host of the press conference poked fun at the actor, stating, “I guess you’re the type to keep boundaries,” Kim Gun Woo admitted defeat and fumbled his words while explaining that he had meant to say something much more touching.
No, I mean, now we are really a family, but at the time, we weren’t as close as we are now. So I was trying to share an episode saying how the acting from the scene was (great) despite the awkwardness and say something touching like that, but I guess it can be interpreted this way as well.
— Kim Gun Woo
Meanwhile, Kim Gun Woo, Jung Sung Il, Cha Joo Young, Lim Ji Yeon, Lee do Hyun, and Song Hye Kyo return with the second season of one of the most-watched K-Dramas in the world, The Glory, on March 10.
