KBS has released a new behind-the-scenes video for “The Tale of Nokdu”!
The drama is a romantic comedy about a man named Jeon Nok Du (played by Jang Dong Yoon), who disguises himself as a woman so he can enter an all-female community, which holds clues to uncovering the truth of his past.
In the latest behind-the-scenes look, Jang Dong Yoon and his fellow cast members have a blast as they film scenes of Nok Du’s first days in the all women’s village.
The first scene shows Nok Du’s encounter with the village guard after entering unaware of the women-only rule. After being confronted by one of the guard, Jang Dong Yoon says to the actress, “You’re so intimidating. Even more so because you’re tall. I feel like I’m really going to get hit.”
Jang Dong Yoon adds, “I really feel like a guy that walked into a women’s locker room. It’s scary.”
Later, the actresses offer Jang Dong Yoon some fresh fruit, and he tells them that he’s already had some. Jokingly, they reply, “Did you say you’ve already had some? Why didn’t you share?”
During a bath scene with a disguised Nok Du, the village guard, and Dong Ju (Kim So Hyun), the actors try to work out how much of Jang Dong Yoon’s top they can take off in the scene. Seeing his exposed shoulders, the actresses comment, “You’re saying we’re not supposed to know he’s a guy? His muscles look too good,” and they eventually decide on only exposing one shoulder.
After falling into the water, Jang Dong Yoon says, “It feels like my legs are paralyzed. No lie, it’s colder than ice water.”
