He also commented about his “married” life, saying, “This is my second time being married because of the MBC show ‘We Got Married‘. But when it comes to dramas, it is my first time getting married.”
He added, “Since Youtube does not have strict restrictions, we were able to show a steamier love scene than on television. I believe that the couple will look more natural than on TV. Youtube is a place where netizens of the entire world can share and communicate. I hope ‘Playful Kiss’ can participate in the phenomenon and become an international icon.”
Kim Hyun Joong explained that the the Youtube episode will conclude the mini series. “The TV series ended with the marriage, but the viewers are probably more curious about the life of the newlyweds. We included episodes the viewers would have wanted to see.”
Meanwhile, the special episodes of ‘Playful Kiss’ will be divided into seven different videos, about 10 minutes each. The first episode will be posted on Tuesdays and Wednesdays starting on the 2nd.
