[Interview #2] Kim So-hyun, "I nearly died in the sea swim scene"

2016/03/07 Source

There must've been difficulties that followed the good parts. In "Pure Love - Movie", Soo-ok is the daughter of a female diver so she had to be comfortable with water. However, So-hyeon doesn't even know how to swim so she experienced a slight trauma in the sea. The most difficult scene for her was the sea-swimming scene.

Kim So-hyun said, "At the beginning of the movie, there is a scene where I jump into the ocean with my friends. About two days were decided for this. However, on the first day, the water was so deep it scared me. The director wanted the scene to be a long take, but I had swallowed too much water already. It was salty sea water as well. I couldn't do it so I yelled for help. The staff who were in the water were so surprised they lifted me up right away".

Still, she made it through thanks to Do Kyung-soo, Yeon Jun-suk, Lee David and Joo Ah-reum. "I haven't been this close to those near my age. I was in "Who Are You - School 2015" before, but I didn't see anyone in particular for more than 2 weeks. This time, we got close and I remember we were always together".

Kim So-hyun worked with Do Kyung-soo the most. About his image as a member of EXO, Kim So-hyun said, "I didn't mind that at all. I looked up all his past works after hearing that he was going to be in "Pure Love - Movie". I was impressed by "Remember You - Movie". I also thought he was perfect for the role of Beom-sil".

She had to be carried on Do Kyung-soo's back all the time and she smiled at this. "I was nervous about that. It was my first time being piggy-backed on someone. I'm sure he was tired but he didn't express it. I felt really bad so I apologized over and over again".

"I decided to cut back on dinner so that I would seem lighter. He must have been really tired as he had to be EXO as well. I didn't want to burden him with more work. He hurt his ankle slightly in the middle of making the movie but he still had to carry me. He didn't even complain about the pain".

Lee David was the joker of the set. Kim So-hyun had worked with him in "Pure Love - Movie" so she was slightly more comfortable with him. "He's fun. He loves to dance and sing along to music. Sometimes I wondered if he was acting or not. He even learned how to dance from Kyeong-soo".

Kim So-hyun was the youngest one on set so she had it easy. She was just tired from having to work continuously straight after "Pure Love - Movie". She was worried she would be a burden to the people on set. She is a lovable character as she cares about what others think and she's very considerate of the people around her.

Kim So-hyun said, "I am hard to get close to at first but the others approached me in the beginning. I was touched by that and the awkwardness didn't go a long time. I hope those people who watch our movie think about their first loves".
