【Extravagant Challenge】 Ivy Chen appears in kimono, Choi Siwon goes wide-eyed and praises that she is beautiful
Taking a photo in front of a 100-year-old building, Siwon laughed and commented that it looks like an international marriage
Ivy Chen discarded her chicken outfit, and changed into a Japanese kimono to become a famous kabuki, successfully stopping male lead Choi Siwon, who plays opposite her, in his tracks. Aside from causing his eyes to brighten up, he also praised that: “(She’s) very pretty! Not everyone can pull it off this well.” On the other day, the production team went to Danshui* Itteki Memorial House for filming purposes, and the both of them took photos in front of the Japanese-styled house which had a hundred years of history. To the outsiders, it may seem as though that they were a couple taking their wedding photos. Choi Siwon laughed and replied in fluent Mandarin that: “It looks like an international marriage with Yihan.”
They who looked compatible in front of the camera lens, had to withstand high temperatures of up to 36 degrees under the sun in order to film for their scenes. From 10am when the UV rays were the strongest, they filmed until the time when the sun sets in the evening before they wrapped things up. The male lead was wearing a suit, while the female lead was wrapped in layers of the thick kimono. Ivy Chen smiled bitterly and said that: “My whole body has been restrained, I can’t open my legs, can’t eat well, and I’m covered in sweat!” She only had the opportunity to walk under the shade away from the sun after the filming that ran close to 8 hours had ended. During that period of time, Ivy Chen could only walk in small, dainty steps, and in accordance with the script she was required to kneel down for long periods of time and perform the tea ceremony. In front of the camera, it was full of Japanese flair, but no one knows that her legs were hurting to the point that they had no energy left in them. Siwon admired the female lead for being able to maintain her posture and actions in a graceful manner, (saying that) she was very dedicated.
