Secret Garden’s Ha Ji Won + Hyun Bin bickers their way into a pond
Translated from a chosun.com’s The Star article
The fighting spirit of Ha Ji Won and Hyun Bin can be seen as they jumped into a freezing pond with temperatures below zero during filming for drama ‘Secret Garden’.
To be broadcast tomorrow (Nov 21), episode 4 of the SBS weekend drama will show the duo bickering before both ending up in the pond. While they were at Ju Won’s estate, Ju Won (Hyun Bin) tosses an object into the pond and then tries to retrieve it before Ra Im (Ha Ji Won) does.
Filmed on Nov 13 and 14 at Gyeonggi-do Yeoju, this scene requires Ha Ji Won and Hyun Bin to enter a chest-deep freezing pond. They tried their best and their acting received applause by surrounding staff. Fortunately, they also received the OK from the director and managed to finish the scene just once, without NG.
What’s more, Ha Ji Won had to wait in her wet clothes after getting out of the pond as she had a continuous scene after that. Despite shivering in the cold weather, she still smiled brightly at the staff who were worried about her, warming up the atmosphere at the set.
A spokesman from production house Hwa and Dam Pictures said, “Actors usually think of their safety first, but Ha Ji Won and Hyun Bin’s determination during the filming shows the professionalism of top actors.”
“Under the circumstances where their safety is not compromised, their passionate acting has contributed to good footage for the drama.”
Created by the combination of writer Kim Eun Sook and PD Shin Woo Chul (‘Lovers in Paris’, ‘Lovers in Prague’, ‘City Hall’), Secret Garden stars Ha Ji Won, Hyun Bin, Yoon Sang Hyun, Kim Sa Rang and Lee Philip.
