“It is stronger than a kick” Actor Lee Byung Hun Revealed a Hillarious Behind-The-Scenes Details of being Slapped by Kim Sun Young

Lee Byung Hun, the renowned actor, recently shared a fascinating behind-the-scenes account of an intense scene in the film “Concrete Utopia,” where he was slapped by Kim Sun Young, leading him to momentarily lose consciousness.

During the production briefing for “Concrete Utopia,” directed by Um Tae Hwa, which took place at Lotte Cinema in Seoul’s Gwangjin-gu on June 21st, all eyes were on the anticipated scene featuring Lee Byung Hun‘s character receiving a slap from Kim Sun Young.

Kim Sun Young expressed her admiration for Lee Byung Hun, stating, “I felt a tremendous surge of energy while acting alongside him.”

In response, Lee Byung Hun shared his own perspective, revealing, “I, too, have experienced that energy before. There is a particular scene in which Kim Sun Young slaps me, and it was an unprecedented experience for me in my over 30-year acting career. The impact was more shocking than a physical kick.”

He went on to disclose, “I momentarily lost consciousness for about a second. In that moment, I thought to myself, ‘So, this is what it feels like to faint.’ Despite enduring the ordeal with unwavering determination, my mind went blank, resulting in no change in my expression.”

Lee Byung Hun‘s revelation significantly raised expectations for the scene in question, leaving fans eagerly awaiting the film’s release.

Adding a touch of humor to his account, the actor shared a delightful anecdote, saying, “The scene was so realistic that I immediately assumed it was fine. However, the director remarked, ‘That shot didn’t require you to be hit or slapped.’ It was a somewhat disappointing behind-the-scenes story,” eliciting laughter from the audience.

Meanwhile, “Concrete Utopia,” slated to hit theaters in August, is a captivating disaster drama that revolves around the aftermath of a major earthquake, transforming Seoul into a desolate wasteland.

The film follows the gripping narrative of survivors who gather in the Hwanggung apartment complex, the only remaining structure, grappling with the challenges of their new reality.
