With a month left before premiering, the crew of Sungkyunkwan Scandal has been moving into high gear, and lead actress Park Min-young has basically moved to the film set — she’s in standby mode practically 24 hours a day, ready to film. The above shot is the latest to come from the set, where Park has made herself at home.
Park said, “It’s not overstating things to say that these days I’m at the filming location 24 hours a day. Since it’s a project I really wanted to do, I’m very attached to it and I’m taking the approach that I have to work hard no matter what. Also, the location is pretty pretty rural so at the end of the day I would have to return to our lodgings, and it’s not like we can come back up to Seoul. So I’ll stay at the set and we’ll keep each other awake. I just think of this as my home and spend my time comfortably.”
What do you think, does she look any more of a boy in that photo than she did in any of the previous photos? At the moment I can’t quite see it, but I’m keeping my mind open; I wasn’t sure Moon Geun-young would be able to play a boy either, but she pulled it off admirably in Painter of the Wind. Not that Park Min-young is in Moon Geun-young’s league, acting-wise, but I’m being optimistic.
Sungkyunkwan Scandal also stars Micky Yoochun, Song Joong-ki, and Yoo Ah-in (and despite the bigger names of the other three, I think Yoo has a pretty good chance of running away with this drama, actually — but we shall see). It airs on KBS, premiering August 30.
