Scent of a Woman shoots in Okinawa

Here’s a batch of fresh new stills and photos from Scent of a Woman, SBS’s upcoming weekend drama. The first couple of stills shown here were taken in Okinawa, and feature leads Kim Sun-ah and Lee Dong-wook on a picturesque beach date.

The cast flew to Japan on July 2 for the shoot; the beach scenes were filmed on their second day there. In fact, the crew had quite the welcome upon their arrival in Japan, with a press conference held at Okinawa’s Naha airport. (Photos from which are posted at the very bottom of the page.) Second lead Seo Hyo-rim was also there for the Japan shoots, although Eom Ki-joon (pictured below in his character’s doctor’s gown) was not.

Asked about filming with her co-star, Kim Sun-ah said laughingly, “I’ve filmed a lot of scenes by myself in the time before Lee Dong-wook was released from military service” — he joined the Scent production directly upon his discharge — “and now that we’re shooting together, I love it, and I really enjoy having a partner like Lee Dong-wook with his face like a sculpture.” (Meaning, chiseled and handsome.)

Lee Dong-wook said, “Kim Sun-ah sunbae gives me really good acting guidance, and I’d been nervous after such a long break from acting so it’s encouraging to hear her praise. The mood is great on set, so I think the drama will come out well.”

Plot refresher: Kim Sun-ah plays an ordinary woman who’s given a short period of time left to live. Lee Dong-wook is the chaebol who falls for her, Eom Ki-joon her cynical doctor who loosens up because of her, and Seo Hyo-rim the chaebol’s passionate and rich fiancee who once loved an ordinary man, only to realize he’d only been after her for her money. When she catches wind that the Everywoman heroine is about to steal her man out from under her, she puts up a fight.

From the looks of the stills, Kim undergoes a transformation at some point, probably in keeping with her new live-life-to-the-fullest attitude. And if we know anything about Drama Shorthand (and we think we do), a curly-to-straight hair transformation = a bolder, sleeker, more confident new attitude.

We’ll see how well Scent of a Woman strikes upon its rom-com tone, but for now I can say that at least the thing looks gorgeous. The drama premieres on July 23.

I was thinking the same thing. But at least now maybe we won't get childish comments about her character's weight like there were in City Hall and obviously Sam-soon...

OMG! She must have lost A LOT of weight. I totally did not recognize her since I never remember her name when I watch Samsoon.
She is so skinny now. Wow.
Does anybody think she resemblances Choi Jin Shil (bless her)? Or is that just me.

i've read somewhere that she had her nose done...nevertheless it doesn't matter, she's a great actress...i loved her as Kim Sam Soon and Mi-Rae...

Required fields are marked *

she had plastic surgery on her nose and eyes, but that was a loooooong time ago, before she was well-known as an actress and before the kim sam-soon drama, so that's prob not the reason why you don't recognize her.

other than that, recently she lost a lot of weight(obviously), and she got braces, which can sometimes change the shape of your lower face some.

personally i think she looks skinnier but still pretty much the same as her kim sam soon days.

also, before kim sam-soon she was always "skinny", but after she had put weight on for that drama she had struggled to lose it. looks like she finally did, good for her.

I get that most people know KSA from her Sam Soon days so they are use to seeing her a little chunkier but yea, she use to be skinnier. And I hate to admit this but KSA is one of those girls that just looks better on the skinnier side since she's so tall.

She was play-punchig him in the stomach when he did not do a scene right. So playful - Love her. They are filming at the Manza Aqua Luce chapel today. You can find out the latest info from LDW's baidu tieba. According to that, they will be here till Jul 9.

Looks cute. I love both leads, and can't wait to see them together.

However, as someone who has naturally curly hair (and gave up trying to straighten it), I hate how curly hair = ugly in these shows.

The first picture of them is absolutely gorgeous. This is one hot pairing. As for the premise of the drama I'm still wary about it but I'm hoping it'll come out with flying colors and be another K-drama drug lol.

she is actually a chameleon...her look changes with every drama or movie she makes...sometimes subtlety like a weight gain which widens her face and shortens her neck...or more extreme like now, where she lost a lot of weight making her features more pronounced. Make-up and eyebrow shape can also change one's looks. So no, I don't think she had surgery...even her old pictures do not suggest that she had one...I should know I am a doctor.

KSA brings out the best in male actors and I'm hopeful that will happen for LDW -- who is oh-so-handsome but kind of wooden in his acting. They both look so great and I'm looking forward to this show!

How nice for LDW. The drama is waiting for him just after the MS. Sure enough, he will be most delighted to perform again after a period of long absence. He is just awesome... more handsome and with great body. KSA is also pretty as before despite after many years performing in Kim Sam Soon.

i skipped the comments as most are about KSA's weight - which i do not really care at all.

because the most important things is > will Lee Dong-wook have a nekkid shower scene? which is almost mandatory post-MS.

and since they're at the beach, i'd settle with him shirtless.

yes, yes, i'm shallow..
