The cast of KBS2 hit drama Boys Before Flowers are over-worked and very tired. Lead actors Lee Min-ho (Gu Jun-pyo) and Kim Hyun-joong (Yun Ji-hoo) have dropped 8kgs and 6kgs respectively from their normal weight. With an impossible filming schedule and various other promotional activities the boys are burnt out.
In the recent F4 Special Talk Show that was aired on 02 March, Lee Min-ho said that on a good day, they get about 2 – 3 hours sleep a night!
Lee Min-ho : “We get about 2 to 3 hours of sleep in a good night. When shooting is tight, we have to get by on one or two hours, finishing one night’s shoot and jumping straight into the next day’s.“
With tight deadlines to meet, sleep and proper meal times is difficult. This resulted in drastic weight-loss for Lee Min-ho and Kim Hyun-joong. Both the actors’ management companies are alarmed because of this — the boys have insufficient rest and their nutrition intake is questionable.
Lead actress Gu Hye-sun (Geum Jan-di) is also having difficulties with the rigorous schedule. Moreover, she has been experiencing “accidents” such as knocking her head at the bottom of the pool while filming a diving scene, and meeting with a car accident (not minor as reported!) which resulted in a delay in airing episode 17. She is also suffering from fatigue due to insufficient rest.
However, all the hard work the cast and crew put into this drama is not all in vain. Fans are adoring it and the drama is a big hit in Korea and other parts of the world.
Malaysians tune in to Boys Before Flowers on KBS World (Astro channel 303) on Mondays – Tuesdays at 9pm. Re-runs on Sundays, 12:10 – 2:30pm.
