“Black Knight” Director Wants Kang Yoo Seok to be an ‘Action Monster’
While “Black Knight” includes top stars like Song Seing Heun and Kim Woo Bin, up-and-coming actor Kang Yoo Seok impressed not just the viewers with his amazing performance but also director Cho Ui Seok.
He once revealed what the “Black Knight” director told him after passing the audition.
As mentioned by a media outlet, he recalled that Director Cho Ui Seok wanted him to “become an action monster” for the character of Sa Wol.
Since the character required a lot of physical activities, he engaged himself in exercise and practiced for fight scenes.
“Three months prior to production, I worked out every day with the stunt team. I built a lot of physical strength through that process, and when it came time to shoot the action scenes,” he said.
Kim Woo Bin’s Smoking Scene is Purely CG
After the premiere, viewers raised concern regarding Kim Woo Bin’s scene, smoking a cigar in “Black Knight.”
Since the actor had just recovered from nasopharyngeal cancer, fans are worried that the series might affect his health.
However, Director Cho Ui Seok assured viewers that they prioritized Kim Woo Bin’s health and explained that the said scene was 100 percent computer graphics.
Esom Gained the Moniker ‘Som-dier’
Esom once again portrayed a badass role in “Black Knight.”
Playing the Defense Intelligence Command major Seol Ah, she needs to have a tough exterior, and as part of her preparation, she revealed working out and doing stunt practices a lot.
However, the “Black Knight” director says she doesn’t need much of it and instead, she should focus on gun handling.
At the press conference, the media named her som-dier, a word play for her name, Esom, and the word soldier.
