The kiss that never was
Fans may be expecting young leads Nam Gyuri and Kim Bum to be locking lips when their upcoming horror movie Go-sa: Bloody Midterms releases on August 6, but they’re not gonna see it.
The supposedly “hot” (yeah, right) kiss scene was cut from the final edit and not shown at the recent VIP premiere/press event, despite the fact that it had been heavily hyped and promoted. The production company explained that the kiss “unfortunately was not essential to the content and flow of the plot, so it was deleted.”
In the uncut version of the movie, Nam Gyuri’s character had received an invitation from Kim Bum’s character to a club event, after which he surprised her with a kiss. However, due to the cutting of another related scene, the kiss no longer was relevant. It’s too bad that the production company and marketing team had prematurely created previews and ads including the scene, stirring strong fan response.
(Still, something tells me it’s not much of a loss anyway.)
