Omasa Aya and Yoochun will act as lovers! Below is the live interview~
Omasa Aya and Yoochun, who possesses mega popularity in Asia, will both star in BeeTV’s new television drama. Omasa Aya acts as a paranoid 22 year old reporter, Hinata, who dreams of becoming a novelist.
A: This is my first time acting as a woman of profession, so the clothes are different from before and my hair is dyed to a more bright color. Before the drunk scene, I had to ask the director for direction on how to do it! (laughs)
In a tight-packed schedule, the filming in the various locations in Kanto had a very amiable atmosphere. But this is still Yoochun’s first time acting in Japanese!
Y: I feel a lot of pressure, so on the first day I couldn’t really eat anything.
A: And you also couldn’t sleep?
Y: Yes, and I was still very nervous once I arrived on-set. But once I became familiarized with everyone, I became a little bit more relaxed and worked hard.
A: Whether it’s Yoochun’s Japanese or acting skills, they have both improved tremendously! I only know a little bit of Korean, so I have to study hard too. Instead of sleeping every night, furiously memorizing the lines is really impressive.
Joking in Japanese and Korean to loosen the filming set
How was it when the two of you first met?
Y: Although I’ve seen pictures, meeting her in real life with her dyed black hair made her look more mature.
A: At that time, I received a CD from Yoochun.
Y: After greeting each other, I couldn’t say anything else… it was kind of awkward… it must have been hard on you! (laughs)
A: Please don’t go back to that! (laughs) I was also really nervous at first. This is my first time acting with a music artist. But this time, whether it’s the staff or the other actors, it was easier to become familiarized with each other.
Y: The atmosphere is also really good! It is one that never hears an end to laughter.
A: But sometimes there will be weird conversations. It feels like a deliberate way of draining time?
Y: Ah! Bum pen, ball point pen! (t/n: the beginning syllable of his joke matched with the last syllable of her sentence)… Japan’s gags.
Y: Just like this type of feeling… most of the time.
A: After that, we’ll always whistle.
Y: Actually, there is some singing as well, but maybe next time. (laughs)
On the day of this interview, let’s welcome Yoochun, who has finished filming first
Y: Upon receiving the script with my Japanese name on it, it was pretty tough reading over it and practicing, but that’s what left a deep impression on me. Even though it’s an obvious love story, please take notice of my acting too.
A: There are sad scenes, but there’s also cheerful interactions with Yongsu. (Yoochun)
Although it may seem like Hinata and Yongsu’s first encounter was at the most terrible time, there are such situations that actually do exist
A: There should be…
Y: For me… Aya was my first encounter. Just kidding! It’s been hard on you. (laughs)
