While waiting for Cheongdamdong Alice to air and the wave of official promotional materials to hit, I got lucky that male lead Park Shi Hoo has a movie coming out soon that he’s been promoting so he’s been giving interviews that mention CA. He’s expressed great eagerness to work with Moon Geun Young and was really impressed with how grounded she was when he first met her. Now comes the hilarious true story which revealed two things, one of which I already knew and the other left me giggling at the incongruity. Park Shi Hoo told the story about how he recently went out to eat with Moon Geun Young and the writers of the drama recently to bond and discuss their characters. During the dinner, he drank one beer and then passed out. No, I did not make that up. Turns out Park Shi Hoo cannot drink at all, and when forced he pretty much drinks soda with the occasional sips of alcohol. I’m still processing the notion that Park Shi Hoo cannot hold his liquor and falls asleep upon imbibing. So. Cute! In a twist of genders, Moon Geun Young is known for being to hold her alcohol so during the dinner she kept waking him up and making him drink, and he would drink, and then she would let him nap for another few minutes. I recollect that Jang Geun Seok and Moon Geun Young also went out to discuss the drama over drinks prior to filming and really bonded. Plus during a memorable scene in the first episode of Mary Stayed Out All Night where Mu Gyul made Mae Ri drink, Jang Geun Seok later revealed that they were really drinking soju. I love hearing funny behind-the-scenes stories and I’m hoping being drunken drinking buddies even once means Moon Geun Young and Park Shi Hoo have broken the ice and we can continue to expect an explosion of chemistry between them onscreen. Check out new filming stills from the drama.
This is the first look at the onscreen family of the leading lady Han Se Kyung. Her parents are in front and next to her is the younger sister, played by Hye Jung of idol group AOA. Below are fan snapped pictures of Park Shi Hoo and Moon Geun Young filming a car accident scene. His hair is interesting, and until I see it clearly and up close I won’t be able to decide if it looks good or veers into helmet hair territory.
