First stills from Heading to the Ground
MBC’s Heading to the Ground is still in the early stages of filming, and the production has now released stills of the drama’s recent rainy-day shoot.
The scene features the show’s star Jung Yun-ho (U-Know Yunho), who trades in his idol polish for a humbler image as he films this scene standing barefoot in the rain. While he gets soaked as he drags his pojangmacha food cart along, co-star and love interest Go Ara remains dry.
In the story, Yun-ho’s character, a devoted soccer player, boasts extraordinary shooting skills — but due to his “reckless personality” he often faces difficulties. However, he is persistent and dogged “like a weed,” and finds himself at all sorts of jobs, like working a part-time gig for a chicken restaurant selling skewers at a stand.
His barefootedness comes from the chivalrous act of lending his own sneakers to Ara’s character, whose high-heeled shoe has broken. (Looks like he’s also giving her a ride — what, she couldn’t give the shoes back? Lol.)
