Hon goes underwater, on rooftops to build up horror
Hon looks like it’s really building up the creep factor with its bloody promo pictures, its adult rating, and eerie shoots, like this one which involved submerging lead actress Im Joo-eun underwater for ten hours.
Such was the harshness of the conditions that Im suffered symptoms of hypothermic shock; the shoot began in the afternoon and extended till dawn the next morning. This particular scene which will air in the drama’s second episode..
According to one of Im’s reps, the actress has a fear of deep water based on a traumatic memory of falling into the ocean in the past. To prepare herself for this shoot, she practiced swimming in advance, although she still found it difficult to shoot because of severe eardrum pain due to the depth of the water. Still, upon wrapping the shoot, she expressed her satisfaction with the results, saying, “I’m glad that it came out better than I thought.”
Meanwhile, another of the drama’s uncomfortably horrific scenes involves the suicide of a high school student, who falls off the roof of a five-story building. As the girl falls, she meets eyes with Im Joo-eun’s Hana character, and after her death, Hana starts to become more like the dead girl.
The drama premieres tomorrow, August 5.
