KBS’s upcoming drama “Tale of Nok-Du” has provided a behind-the-scenes look at the cast’s antics during the poster shoot!
Based on a webtoon of the same name, “Tale of Nok-Du” is a historical rom-com about a man named Jeon Nok Du (played by Jang Dong Yoon), who disguises himself as a woman to enter a mysterious all-female community. There, he meets Dong Dong Joo (played by Kim So Hyun), a girl who wants to run away from her training as a gisaeng (female courtesan).
The poster shoot begins with individual shots of Jang Dong Yoon. He explains that he’s gotten used to being dressed as a woman because he stays like that for the majority of the drama, but he still hasn’t quite adjusted to the overwhelmingly enthusiastic reactions of the people around him.
He becomes embarrassed when the female staff tease him and says, “I don’t think I’ll get this kind of reaction when I’m dressed as a man.” Throughout the shoot, he is constantly showered with praise, with the crew commenting that he looks like a cosmetics brand model and that he’s so pretty, to which Jang Dong Yoon replies, “Please don’t say I’m pretty!”
Kim So Hyun is the next to go in front of the camera. She gestures over to Jang Dong Yoon and quips, “Our female protagonist is over there.” While monitoring the pair’s couple poster shoot, Kim So Hyun jokes, “It’s so annoying. [Dong Yoon] looks like an elegant lady.” Despite the competitive atmosphere, Kim So Hyun says she feels satisfied with how pretty she looks and is complimented by the staff.
The three main leads also show off their friendly chemistry as they look over photos from the shoot. Kang Tae Oh comments to Jang Dong Yoon, “You look like a lily. This photo is really nice.” They admire a photo of Kim So Hyun next, and Jang Dong Yoon teases, “Is there such a pretty person on the cast?”
