A Man Called God’s underwater kiss
Han Chae-young mentioned an underwater kiss scene in the recent press conference for A Man Called God, and now the drama (drumming up for its premiere tomorrow with a constant stream of promotional releases and stills) has released photographs. You can barely tell in the shot above, but that’s Han with her leading man, the drama’s revenge-driven hero played by Song Il-kook.
The underwater scene was filmed at a studio in Pocheon over six hours. Han explained that she’s not a strong swimmer and worried about the scene, but thanked Song for showing careful concern for her well-being throughout the shoot. Song stated that the scene was pretty difficult; he has also suffered a myriad of injuries from various stunts he has been performing, such as being stabbed and falling from a horse.
(As an aside: Can I call for a moratorium on underwater lip-locks that are supposedly rescue maneuvers used to transfer oxygen but are merely an excuse to kiss? I mean, really. It seems like there’s one in every third drama.)
After all this noise marketing, we’ll finally be able to see for ourselves whether A Man Called God will live up to its hype as a high-budget blockbuster action series. This underwater scene will be featured in the first episode, which airs Saturday.
