Here’s a fact about K-drama press interviews that you might not know: they are usually dead serious. No matter the genre of the show they are plugging, everyone — except the host — would be solemn and reserved. Not sure why.
Ironically, it was at the recent presser of the dark and gory Netflix drama Hellbound that people actually laughed with abandon.
The six-episode M18 series is about beastly executors from hell who come to Earth to execute humans in the most ghastly way and then send them to hell. The supernatural phenomenon gives rise to a religious cult founded on the idea of divine justice.
Actor Yoo Ah-in — who tickled the curiosity of many after actress Song Hye-kyo posted a photo of them together in July — is the star of the highly lauded drama, playing cult leader Jung Jin-su. But it was his older co-actor Yang Ik-june who stole the show during interviews with the Asia-Pacific media.
