[HanCinema's News] Kim Soo-hyun Noted for Putting Fingers in Ears During Kiss Scenes


Various online communities on the South Korean Internet have been discussing a peculiar detail in "It's Okay to Not Be Okay" that had until now largely gone unnoticed. In the eleventh episode of the drama, there was a kiss scene that prompted a rating restriction of 18+ due to its intense content. But behind the scenes still for that scene show something surprising. Kim Soo-hyun appears to be fingering the ear of his co-star Seo Ye-ji.

This has prompted spirited debate about whether Kim Soo-hyun was, indeed, digging into Seo Ye-ji's ear on the set, or whether this particular still simply looks peculiar out of context. Analysis of the scene in question appears to suggest that the still was just poorly timed. However, some observers have noted that Kim Soo-hyun had his hand similarly positioned in "Producers" during his kiss scene with Cha Tae-hyun.

The discussions do not appear to harbor any particular ill will toward Kim Soo-hyun. Indeed, the kiss with Cha Tae-hyun, who is a man, was played for comedy. The kiss scene with Seo Ye-ji was played for serious drama. Nevertheless the apparent tic has interested many fans. Kim Soo-hyun has relatively few kiss scenes over his career, after all, compared to his reputation.
