Caption: tvn Monday Tuesday Drama “Oh Hae-young, Again” Special commentary
MC: Hello. I am Shin Young-il. Welcome to the Highlight Commentary on tvn’s new TV series on Mondays and Tuesdays, “Oh Hae-young, Again”. We have the three main protagonists of the series with us here. Hello, everyone.
MC: Could you each please introduce the character you play?
Eric: I play, Park Do-gyeong, a sound director who’s caught between the two Oh Hae-youngs. He can also see the future.
Hyun-jin: The Oh Hae-young I play is very plain… in looks, in wits, in romance.
Hye-bin: I am the other Oh Hae-young, who was born with a silver spoon in her mouth. We share the same name but not the same luck
MC: So there is two Oh Hye-young. That’s why it is “Oh Hye-young, Again.”
Hyun-jin: It’s a romantic comedy about mistaken identities.
Did I sound like I memorized that?
The story starts with a misunderstanding. What I felt during filming was that
it’s a story where everyone’s an undeserving victim.
Everyone’s pitiable and their lives get all entangled together.
MC: Could you compose a three-line poem with the lines starting with Oh, Hae and Young?
Let’s start with Seo Hyun-jin. Oh!
Hyun-jin: Oh, it’s all a misunderstanding.
MC: Oh, it’s all a misunderstanding. Hae!
Hyun-jin: Hae-young is my name.
Hyun-jin: Young anin (Far from appealing) Hae-young I am.
MC: You put some thought to your poem! You prepared it in advance!
MC: Next, Eric is up. He must be feeling the pressure. Will his poem be better? Oh!
Eric: Oh Hae-young is..
Eric: Hae-young is.
Eric: Young-guk saram (a British person).
Hye-bin: Come on. Do the last line over again.
Hyun-jin: Cut. NG.
Eric: I can only think of Young-guk(Britain). Younghwagwan(theater), she went to.
Hye-bin: Where can I go from here? There’s no way of salvaging this.
MC: It’s up to you now, Jeon Hae-bin. How are you going to save the day?
Hye-bin: My poem will be about people’s reaction to “Oh Hae-young, Again.”
MC: People’s reaction to “Oh Hae-young, Again.” Oh!
Caption: Hah hah hah hah
Hyun-jin: Good save.
Hye-bin: Oh yeah.
Eric: We’ll go with this poem.
MC: Hehhh… What’s that?
Hye-bin: You know, like the Japanese exclamation, ‘ehhhh’?
MC: So you are even thinking of exporting to Japan.
Hye-bin: That’s right.
MC: Your poems were all quite impressive but a bit lacking in information. Let’s try to add some more content. Oh!
Hyun-jin: Oh-weol (May) 2nd.
Eric: Hae-yo(It’s on.)
Hye-bin: Younghwa(Movies) have nothing on this TV drama.
MC: “Oh Hae-young, Again.” It’s awesome.
Caption: Everyone is pleased with their poem.
MC: So, let’s take a look at some hightlight scenes from the show.
Caption: Highlight scene from “Oh Hae-young, Again”
MC: The first scene is an action scene.
Man: It only took 2 weeks to film the movie. Why is the sound part taking over a month?
Hye-bin: They learned the foley technique to actually do the foley process in the scene.
MC: Eric actually learned the technique?
Hyun-jin: Not Eric. The other actors. Eric just gave orders.
Caption: Perfectionist sound director, Park Do-gyeong.
MC: Cut! and a blow.
Hye-bin: This is where the symptoms start.
MC: He’s starting to see things, right?
Hye-bin: He’s seeing the future.
MC: His eyes look different. He’s seeing something. Park somewhere else?
Hyun-jin: How did you film that scene?
Eric: We actually dropped a real signboard.
MC: So a real signboard was dropped on a real car?
Eric: That’s right. After dropping the signboard, there was broken glass powder everywhere in the air.
MC: That’s not a scene you can afford to retake. How did you manage to succeed in a single try?
Eric: First: we tied the signboard up and shot the actors first.
After we shot everything, we shot the signboard dropping.
The sound was much louder than I’d thought. I wondered whether I should have made my reaction bigger but by then it was too late to change anything.
MC: What’s your opinion on your reaction now?
Eric: I think it was appropriate.
Caption: Hah hah hah hah hah
MC: Eric Moon, the actor, is satisfied with his acting
Hye-bin: This is the first scene Seo Hyun-jin appears in.
MC: Let’s take a look.
Caption: This man’s secret super-power.
MC: This man’s secret is his super-power.
Man: Our daughter Oh Hae-young’s wedding scheduled for today has been cancelled.
MC: How could you look so cheerful in such a situation.
Hyun-jin: You’ve missed it. My lips are smiling but my eyes aren’t. I’m forcing myself to smile. My eyes were actually crying but I guess it doesn’t show.
MC: That’s what it was?
Hyun-jin: My eyes are crying but my lips are smiling. But I guess it wasn’t obvious enough.
MC: No, I think I see it now.
Hyun-jin: Why did it stop there?
MC: Wow. That’s some editing.
Hyun-jin: I didn’t know my skirt was raised that high up.
MC: Our editor always fails to find the right scenes but I think he did this in purpose. This was intentional.
Hyun-jin: Oh my god.
Hye-bin: You have a clear view of her behind.
Hyun-jin: I wasn’t aware of this during the shooting. I did feel cool for some reason.
MC: You must have felt quite cool.
Hyun-jin: I’m so embarrassed. Please move on to the next scene.
MC: That scene is a keeper. It seems Seo Hyun-jin is in charge of the slap-stick department here.
Hye-bin: That’s right.
Hyun-jin: She’s the pretty one and I’m the ugly one.
Eric: She looks and acts like a cartoon character.
Hyun-jin: Is that a compliment or an insult?
Eric: It’s a compliment.
Hye-bin: What’s that? What did you throw?
Eric: Is that meat?
Hyun-bin: That was beef feet.
Caption: Crazy woman Oh Hae-young
MC: Beef feet.
Hyun-jin: I threw it like I meant to kill someone with it.
MC: You’re a bad daughter to your parents.
Hye-bin: No, she’s not.
MC: She’s not?
Hye-bin: There’s a story behind this. The plain Oh Hae-young was left by her fiancé just before the wedding. He told her he hated even the sight of her eating. But her parents don’t know about this. So it’s a heart-breaking situation for her.
MC: This story is getting even more interesting. These people know how to get you hooked. I can’t wait to watch the show. Were you trained to do this? Let’s continue. Is this when they were students?
Hye-bin: Again, I’m the pretty Oh Hae-young.
MC: The popular girl.
Hye-bin: Yes, I was popular even back in school.
Hyun-jin: My character felt envious of her even back then.
Hyun-jin: She was the pretty girl.
MC: You look lovely.
Hyun-jin: They helped me look lovely on camera.
Eric: That’s where we will hold our fan event.
MC: You’re holding a fan event at the shooting location if your viewing rate surpasses 3%, right?
Hye-bin: We’re going to serve tofu.
MC: I see.
Caption: Tofu? Hah hah hah.
MC: What’s this scene? Oh my.
Hye-bin: It’s a bed scene.
MC: Is that all to the bed scene? Or is there more?
Hye-bin: There’s a bit more. This was actually my first bed scene ever.
MC: You can’t see the faces clearly.
Hye-bin: That’s me.
Hyun-jin: I went to the shooting a bit early because I wanted to see the bed scene. But by the time I got there the shooting was over. I was very disappointed.
MC: Why did you want to see it?
Hye-bin: You’re strange.
Hyun-jin: Wouldn’t you want to see one? I did. I was very curious.
Hye-bin: I actually really like this scene. I was really moved by this scene. All women have cried like that once in their life.
Hyun-jin: When they were shooting this scene, our director asked me if I’d ever cried out loud like this. I said of course and asked him if he’d never cried like this before. He answered no.
Hye-bin: This is how you cry when there’s no one and your heart is broken to pieces.
Hyun-jin: It comes from your guts.
MC: What went through your mind when you shot that scene?
Hyun-jin: That’s a secret.
Caption: Hah hah hah hah hah
MC: Give us at least a hint. Was it something from your past? Hyun-jin: I can’t say.
MC: Was it that big of a deal?
Hyun-jin: It was.
Hyun-jin: Actually no. I don’t remember what I was thinking.
Hye-bin: I think a lot of female viewers will see their own faces overlapping with Seo Hyun-jin’s face in this scene. It’s a really powerful scene. There’s a lot of handsomeness in this scene.
MC: Yes. Handsomeness full on.
Caption: Handsomeness Handsomeness
Hye-bin: So handsome.
MC: Yes. It’s there.
Oh, you can’t take your eyes off of it.
Do you work out regularly and is this how your body looks all the time? Or was this a rushed effort?
Eric: It was a rushed effort.
The proper way to build your body would have taken much longer.
Hyun-jin: He’s serious. He’s very serious.
Eric: I’m supposed to be a sound director so I thought I shouldn’t have a perfectly chiseled body.
Hye-bin: Is that really the reason?
Caption: Hah hah hah hah hah
MC: Ye Ji-won’s character is also quite something.
Eric: I love that posture. It’s like a cartoon.
Hyun-jin: I just pass through in this scene.
Caption: The beginning of all misunderstanding. Oh Hae-young is back “again.”
MC: Wow, all the men are going crazy when Jeon Hye-bin appears.
Hye-bin: Who acts like that in an elevator? But this is a drama character so please understand.
MC: Let’s stop here. This is the taekwondo scene you were telling me about before.
Hyun-jin: All the moves and kicks were choreographed by Ye Ji-won. The scene with the water bottle kick was also choreographed by her. She held the bottle, kicked the bottle and basically did the scene all by herself.
MC: Was the scene dangerous to shoot?
Hyun-jin: No. She was very accurate with her kick so the shooting was finished in one try.
MC: It was all done in the first try?
MC: That’s amazing.
Eric: I love this dance.
Hye-bin: I love this scene. Everyone loves this scene.
MC: What is the dance supposed to mean?
Hyun-jin: It’s a desperate situation. We’re dancing to save our lives.
MC: Is that what it is?
Hyun-jin: Doesn’t it look like that?
MC: I can see the dance is done in desperation. Was the character supposed to be drunk when dancing?
Hyun-jin: No, she’s quite fine.
MC: She’s fine?
Hyun-jin: She’s really dancing to save herself.
Hye-bin: It’s her last attempt to feel alive.
The funny thing is her mom approaches her to scold her but ends up dancing together with her.
MC: It looks like a variation of the Gaedari Dance. Why is the mother dancing with her?
Hye-bin: She empathized with her daughter.
MC: What’s your take on the highlight scenes?
Hye-bin: I think this drama will help people get over their Monday blues. You should definitely see it before going to bed.
MC: Okay. All three of you are convincing but I think Jeon Hye-bin is the most convincing. She must have gotten special training from the PR department. She’s going a great job.
Caption: Feeling proud
MC: What was the scene that stayed in your head for the longest time after shooting it?
Hye-bin: I did a kiss scene with Eric recently. He was very nervous. So I took the lead and did a good job.
Eric: I always listen to women.
Hye-bin: He was a good follower.
Eric: The first scene Hye-bin had to shoot was the bed scene and the second scene was the kiss scene. I just did as she told me.
Hye-bin: As I told you.
Hyun-jin: How sweet it must have been.
MC: I hear you are disappointed you don’t have a kiss scene yet. Will you get one before the show’s over?
Hyun-jin: I’ll get one just before I die of old age.
MC: So there will be one later? I’ll be looking forward to it. Let’s finish with our commentary. Can you leave our viewers with a last comment?
Eric: We will do our best to make a good show. We hope to present our show soon. Thank you.
Hyun-bin: We’ve got a great script and we’re paying attention to details. I hope you enjoy our drama.
Hye-bin: I hope you enjoy “Oh Hae-young, Again” which will make you feel refreshed in this lovely spring season. The drama will start soon. We are doing our best to present a great show. I hope everyone enjoys it.
MC: This wraps up our commentary with the three main protagonists. The first episode of “Oh Hae-young, Again” will be on May 2nd, Monday night 11pm. We hope you enjoy the show.
