Recent behind-the-scenes footage of Island shows that even while the reality of filming the exorcism scene wasn’t quite as sexy as the finished product, Cha Eunwoo is still as attractive as ever.
In the footage, Cha Eunwoo keeps his composure throughout the filming, even though the actress behind him loudly yells her lines, also committing to her character.
And when they take a break, Cha Eunwoo asks his fellow actors for help with Italian, which he had to use for his role as a priest.
Cha Eunwoo also always diligently films his scenes. For instance, when he struggles with using the restraints, he asks for guidance from the staff before filming it again to ensure they get the perfect shots.
The idol also immediately apologizes to the actress his character is exorcising, making sure she’s okay after their intense scene.
Cha Eunwoo was so hard-working and kind that not only did fans admire him, but even the staff were charmed by his personality, which you can read more about here.
