Lee Seung Gi comments on his ‘The King 2 Hearts’ role and that he misses his parents

On this week’s broadcast of MBC‘s ‘Good Day‘, singer and actor Lee Seung Gi talked about his role on ‘The King 2 Hearts‘, and expressed that he missed his parents while spending long hours filming the drama.

The star was interviewed on the set of ‘The King 2 Hearts’, and he talked about his difficult CBR training scene.

“It was no joke. I’ve never done it before so I thought ‘Let’s actually spread the chemicals in the air when we film’,” he said. “But the director told us, ‘If we do that, you’ll die. You won’t be able to act’, so we went with fake smoke.

“I think that spreading fake smoke for 4 hours is equivalent to airing the chemicals for 2 minutes,” he continued, explaining how difficult the scene really was.

Lee Seung Gi also commented on his ‘scarf kiss’ scene with actress Ha Ji Won that’s been causing a lot of buzz lately.

“We weren’t very close at the time, so I thought, ‘Is this okay?’ I felt pretty shy about it, but the director and noona (Ha Ji Won) said that I was actually pretty aggressive.”

When asked what kind of son he is at home, he responded, “When I have a lot of work and am juggling a busy schedule, there are times I’ll complain and get annoyed easily like any other son.”

While filming this drama, there was a week where I was barely at home because of work. Until then, I didn’t realize what it felt like to miss your parents, but I really missed my mom and dad during that week,” he continued.

Meanwhile, according to AGB Nielsen Media Research Korea, ’The King 2 Hearts’ which tells the story of a South Korean prince and a North Korean military official, drew in an impressive viewership of 16.5% thanks to both Lee Seung Gi & Ha Ji Won’s impassioned performances.

SpoilersLee Seung Gi’s character meets North Korean SONE on ‘The King 2 Hearts’

On the fourth episode of MBC‘s ‘The King 2 Hearts‘, Lee Seung Gi, who plays Lee Jae Ha (Prince of South Korea), teased Jeong Man Sik (North Korean Soldier) about his secret love for Girls’ Generation. This unnecessary act by Lee Jae Ha caused Jeong Man Sik to explode in anger and confront the prince.

In previous episodes, Lee Jae Ha unwillingly joined a joint military team consisting of North and South Korean soldiers to promote peace between the two Koreas. The team is a six man party which includes Kim Hang Ah (Ha Ji Won), Choi Kwon (Kwon Yeong Bae), and Jeong Man Sik (Ri Kang Seok) who are all North Koreans. The remaining three South Koreans are Jo Jeong Seok (Eun Si Kyung), Kwon Hyeon Sang (Yeom Dong Ha), and the prince, Lee Jae Ha. Prince Lee Jae Ha, who has a rebellious and irresponsible character, didn’t get along with Jeong Man Sik from the start.

In this latest episode, Lee Jae Ha decided to play a prank on his North Korean teammate by presenting him a laptop for his birthday. Of course it wasn’t just any ordinary computer. Lee Jae Ha programmed it so that it would automatically play Girls’ Generation’s “The Boys” as soon as the device was turned on. Delighted, Jeong Man Sik happily watched the video until a video message popped up with Lee Jae Ha. “True friends understand each other’s feelings without speaking words right? You don’t need to be shy. To be awed by the culture of a highly developed country is nothing to be ashamed of,” Lee Jae Ha teased.

Enraged Jeong Man Sik grabbed a hold of Lee Jae Ha’s collar and retorted, “South Korean scumbags don’t understand different values!” After noticing the ruckus through cameras, military officials soon came to prevent the situation from escalating further.

Although North Korea is an isolated country, the locals get many of their South Korean entertainment content from China. There are bound to be a few Girls’ Generation fans (officially called “SONES“) there.
