South Korean actor Park Seo Joon shared his views on doing steamy scenes in television series. The 29-year-old artist spoke on the bedroom scene with actress Park Min Young in TVN's recently-ended drama What's Wrong with Secretary Kim.
The romantic comedy features Seo Joon as the narcissistic businessman Lee Young Joon and Min Young as his secretary Kim Mi So.
In an interview, while talking about the raunchy scenes, Joon said, according to Soompi: "Bed scenes are very difficult for actors. We also depend on the director for certain parts as well. Since the script alone does not portray the situation, we rehearse a lot on the set, and rather than going with my thoughts, it's important to know the relationship between the two characters, whether it's their first night together or if they're long-term lovers, to make it natural."
Joon revealed that his method completely depends on acting natural. He added: "I think the reason the bed scene got attention is mainly due to the atmosphere rather than the scene being so risqué. It got attention because of things like the emotions drawn together from the first episode. It is hard to monitor on the spot because of how the camera director films. When I watched the broadcast, the angle in which it was filmed did sort of make me feel like I was kind of intruding."
After making his debut in 2011, Joon has starred in numerous TV dramas including Dream High 2, Pots of Gold, One Warm Word, Witch's Romance, Kill Me, Heal Me, She Was Pretty, Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth and Fight for My Way.
During the interview, Joon was asked whether he felt proud for being praised for his romantic comedy acting. He stated: "I wasn't proud of myself as my real personality and the drama's character were different, but I always have confidence in my acting. I am not a person who has a strong sense of self-regard or is used to showing off though."
