As Kim Soo Hyun is recently filming popular SBS drama “My Love From the Stars,” his agency Key East Entertainment has revealed an update: “He had a CF lined up as well, so he filmed the CF and then went right back to the drama set at night. It is practically impossible to leave the drama set. Kim Soo Hyun plays an alien who came to earth 400 years ago, so he has to film scenes from the Joseon dynasty as well, so he has a really tight schedule.”
It’s not just him with a jam-packed schedule. The cast of “Emergency Man and Woman” were extremely tired, yet still professional, at their recent press conference. Director Kim Chul Kyu commented, “Just coming out of filming one time means today becomes tomorrow. We don’t take breaks in the middle, just a trip to the sauna for a bit, and then it’s right back to filming.” Cast member Lee Pil Mo admitted, “There’s no going home to sleep. A corner of the emergency room has become home, and after sitting on the sofa for a while, we go straight to filming. In typical dramas, usually I go to the salon before coming to the set, but our set is an emergency room, so there’s not really any need to look good. Instead of going to the salon, I just sleep.”
As well, the recently-finished drama “Reply 1994” had its toll on its own respective actors, one of which, Go Ara, confessed after filming finished: “My dark circles were down to my chin, and my eyes had lost focus. I was spaced out while filming.” Kim Sung Kyun also shared “By the end of filming, everyone had become a zombie,” while Yoo Yeon Seok revealed, “Beginning from the middle of December, I barely got an hour of sleep a day. The staff displayed superhuman powers.”
This schedule is even harsher on celebrities with overlapping schedules for different roles. This brings the term “jjok-jam,” referring to the little and uncomfortable sleep the actors and staff get on set.
