They have such sweet interactions that they even got into dating rumors
Song Hye Kyo – Jang Ki Yong
“Now We Are Breaking Up” is known as a melodrama, yet the couple Song Hye Kyo – Jang Ki Yong does not have many love moments in the film. Throughout the 16 episodes, the pair struggled in the “breakup” scene.
In exchange, this couple is exceptionally close behind the scenes. They frequently chuckle and make intimate gestures to one another. Even Song Hye Kyo‘s supporters must admit that it’s so rare to see her so cheerful backstage.
Song Hye-kyo and Jang Ki Yong have opened up about working together ahead of the premiere of Now, We Are Breaking Up.
“Jang Ki Yong is well-mannered and kind. When I said something, I liked how he tried his best to get it done,” said the veteran actress of her co-star, per Soompi. Song added that she felt Jang had perfectly embodied his character, Yoon Jae-guk. “I thought, ‘Our chemistry is going to be great moving forward.’”
“I’m so thankful to Song Hye-kyo. Even now, I still can’t believe that Song Hye-kyo is next to me. It was even more fascinating when we were working together in front of the camera,” Jang Ki Yong replied.
He added, “I was nervous during our first filming but she was so considerate on set. When I joke around, she’s like a close older sister, but when we start filming, she’s an impressive actor who turns into Ha Young-eun (Song’s character).”
Han So Hee – Song Kang
The “Nevertheless” couple has a lot of bed scenes, kissing scenes in the drama, but that’s nothing compared to their sweet interactions behind the scenes. Perhaps because they are the same age, the two easily become close. They have sweet interactions off-screen as if they were a newlywed couple. Their chemistry even caused the couple to be entangled in dating rumors.
In an interview, Han So Hee and Song Kang was asked what did they feel when they knew they were working together.
Song Kang shared, “I thought from appearance and her expressions she was like Na-bi , and she’s also got an ambiance and she’s very frank. So I was very surprised and happy to know she was my costar.”
Han So Hee added, “I also thought he was very similar to Jae-on. Before the drama there were a lot of online polls and fan picks for the casting and I thought he’d be a great pick. Song Kang has a bubbly character, and his charms are very different from Jae-on since he’s very pure (in real life), so that contrast makes him more charming”
Song Joong Ki – Jeon Yeo Bin
Because “Vincenzo” is not a melodrama, Song Joong Ki and Jeon Yeo Bin’s characters have little opportunity to flirt with each other in the drama. However, the couple was so amorous behind the scenes that they were even rumored to be dating.
After “Vincenzo”, the couple continued to enthrall the audience by publicly supporting each other’s new projects and having sweet interaction when they had the chance to meet again at big events.
In an interview, Song Joong Ki was asked to choose a character and actor that he thinks he had the best chemistry with and he revealed it to be Jeon Yeo Bin in an instant. He went on to say, “You may think I won’t choose anyone in case anyone gets upset, because Vincenzo interacted with many characters. But I pick Jeon Yeo Bin’s Hong Cha Young no matter what.”
He added, “It can’t be helped if the other actors get upset, it is an undeniable fact. I personally felt that she was very charming and I grew attached to the character while acting together. Jeon Yeo Bin and character Hong Cha Young both have really grown on me a lot.”
