There are warning signs ahead for the romance between ‘hard-fist couple’ Choi Si Won and Lee Si Young.
On KBS 2TV’s Poseidon (written by Jo Gyu Won, directed by Yoo Chul Yong), a serious talk scene between Kim Sun Woo (played by Choi Si Won) and Lee Soo Yoon (played by Lee Si Young), the ‘hard-fist couple’ loved by the audience due to their sweet romance, was released.
On the 13th episode of Poseidon, which will be aired on the 31st, Soo Yoon is going to storm out crying bitterly while talking with Sun Woo with a serious look on her face.
Above all, it was reported that the set went silent because of the bitter tears she shed realistically. This increased the audience’s curiosity about the reason why Sun Woo made Soo Yoon cry and what Sun Woo did wrong.
The scene recently taken at one of the cafes near Hong Ik University was created in a solemn atmosphere in order to help the actors to focus on their parts. Especially Choi Si Won and Lee Si Young didn’t forget about being considerate to each other since they had to create a serious situation on the set.
The production company, Annex Telecom, said, “Choi Si Won and Lee Si Young are very close together and compatible with each other. So the romantic scenes between them are easily created. Please give your big support and interest to the investigation reaching the climax and the romance between Choi Si Won and Lee Si Young.”
