On the latest episode of “The manager,” Ku Hye Sun. told behind the scenes stories about her hit drama “Boys over flowers”!
Her first appearance on a variety show since their divorce, Ku Hye Sun was a guest on the November 7th episode of MBC’s reality program. She also introduced viewers to the head of her new agency, Kim Sung Hoon, who had worked with Ku Hye Sun for many years in the early days of her career.
In an interview, Kim Sung Hoon recalled the grueling process of casting Ku Hye Sun in her legendary lead role in “Boys Over Flowers”.
“The competition to cast the drama was extremely tough,” he said. “Every agency that had actresses in this age group asked to cast their actresses. I also spent so much time waiting in the production company, going back and forth and meeting the director several times until Ku Hye Sun was finally cast in that role. ”
While Ku Hye Sun was sharing a meal with Kim Sung Hoon and his son (who is also their manager), she complained with a laugh, “Which I found most unfair [about ‘Boys Over Flowers’] was that at the end of a scene the guys would arrive in pretty dresses and then steal the show. But from the start I was hit by eggs and flour until they showed up, and then the scene would end. It was ultimately the male lead that benefited from it. ”
Kim Sung Hoon replied, “But that’s why people loved Geum Jan Di’s character more because she suffered. It was a true Cinderella story. “Watch footage of your conversation from the studio, presenter Jun Hyun Moo agreed: “People chose her.”
Ku Hye Sun also revealed that she suffered a concussion while filming the scene in which she falls backwards into a swimming pool.
“But I had to continue filming immediately,” she continued. “If I didn’t continue filming right away, the drama couldn’t be broadcast as planned. So I pushed myself to keep filming. Then, about a week later, I felt sick and dizzy. I finally passed out while filming and went to the hospital. ”
Ku Hye Sun later shared that she ultimately broke up with her then-boyfriend because of filming the drama overseas.
Ku Hye Sun stated that she had no cell phone reception in New Caledonia, where the drama’s beautiful island scenes were filmed. “I had a boyfriend at the time and he couldn’t get in touch with me. But he didn’t believe me when I said I had no reception there. I thought it was an excuse. So we broke up. ”
