“Practice, Practice, Practice”

Hello, I’m Ryu Tae Oh, no, Lee Joon now. Have you all watched ‘Gap Dong’ which ended on 21st? It ended with Ryu Tae Oh’s death. He closed his eyes after when Oh Maria (Kim Min Jung) says “Thank you for watching the end”.

Actually, this line was also intended for audiences meaning ‘thank you for watching Ryu Tae Oh’s acting’. I felt hard since I had weak body shooting the drama. In The early stage of the shooting overlapped with MBLAQ album activity, and I got distracted from the South America Tour in the last stage of the shooting.

Ryu Tae Oh’s cordiality is contained in the last scene. So I did my best to shoot the scene. I was worried that I would disappoint audiences with my bad acting, but I don’t know where to put myself at compliments. I think I’m good at ‘carrots’ than ‘skicks’.

Shall we see the hectic 24 hours of Ryu Tae Oh again?

This is at the filming site of Paju on last 18th. Tada! This is the script of the last episode of ‘Gap Dong’. This is where I meet Cha Do Hyeok (Jung In Gi), the meeting of real Gap Dong and little Gap Dong. It was the most expected and nervous scene among the shootings.

We cannot just pass this scene since I met the ‘real’ Gap Dong, as they say, right?

“Nice to meet you, Gap Dong X2”

External image


“Facial expression of getting goose bumps~”

External image


“How is it like? Am I scary?”

External image


“Joker’s lips now~”

External image


“Now! Is the time to meet him!”

External image


Finally, Gap Dong meets Cha Do Hyeok. I have privately met senior Jung In Gi by senior Ma Dong Suk’s introduction. It was when I finished shooting the movie, ‘Rough Play’. I was so thankful to him since he complimented my bad acting and an honor to act with him in this drama.

We give brief explanation for those who didn’t watch the broadcast live.

Ryu Tae Oh : Cha Do Hyeok, who was once my god and my spirit. I have overcome you now.

Cha Do Hyeok : Overcame me?

Ryu Tae Oh : (charging toward Cha Do Hyeok) I will strangle your neck….

Ryu Tae Oh : So 9413 you’re not the real Gap Dong, but I am.

External image


I focused repeatedly. This was the scene where I mock Cha Do Hyeok by saying ‘I’m the real Gap Dong’. Fortunately, senior Jung In Gi matched the lines with me for several times.

The most elaborated work was the facial expression at the mocking scene when I ask “How will you kill me?” with horrified eyes, and asks “How will a guy fucked up like you?” I gave changes in tone, making low and middle-low tone according to my facial expressions.

External image


The shooting ended well otherwise with my worries. This was the last scene of ‘Gap Dong’ for senior Jung In Gi. With the ‘OK’ sign of director Jo Soo Won, staffs gave applauses. I also took a proof-shot with a sad mind.

External image


“Senior, let’s meet again~”

☞ This is the time to meet Ma Ji Wool (Kim Ji Won).

External image


We cannot miss out this scene too. It is where I get expression lesson from Ma Ji Wool. Ma Ji Wool wanted to teach small feeling to psychopath Ryu Tae Oh. She did not lose the hope that Ryu Tae Oh could change until the very last.
Shall we see this scene too?

# In the café.

Ryu Tae Oh : It’s really weird.
Ryu Tae Oh : Why are you like my mom even though you’re more younger than me?
Ma Ji Wool : I wanted to see you to give this, so I will go now.
Ryu Tae Oh : Why are you doing this to me? Am I pathetic?
Ma Ji Wool : (cannot continue words) Actually Ddol Joong is going to have dangerous operation. He could die. I have nothing to do for him. Who knows if I behave well, Ddol Joong would be blessed instead.

Kim Ji Won is the only sister at the spot. It is somehow uncomfortable even though seniors such as Sung Dong Il, Jung In Gi, Yoon Sang Hyun, and Kim Min Jung make me comfortable. On the other hand, I always played jokes on Kim Ji Won whenever I met her. She is the most comfortable friend.

External image


“Ma Ji Wool, don’t cry now~”

External image


“Our chemistry is good, right?”

External image


I met a child after shooting with Kim Ji Won. He was riding a two-footed kickboard. I slightly approached him too. He recognized me fortunately, so he gave me the kickboard. It was since a long while that I rode it, but my skill hadn’t gone away.

External image


“Oh! He is Gap Dong!!”

External image


“Gap Dong, will you ride it?”

External image


“Aren’t I good at riding it?”

External image


“Ring Ring~ watch out your way~”

☞ This is the time to see detective Ha Moo Yeon (Yoon Sang Hyun).

This is in front of a hospital in Dongjak-gu. Ryu Tae Oh also ran out of strength since he met Gap Dong and Ma Ji Wool at the same time. I began to sleep in a chair while staffs prepared shooting. I couldn’t stop thinking about the scripts of Ryu Tae Oh even when I was sleeping.

External image


I began to work the scripts after waking up. This was the scene where Ryu Tae Oh is possessed with illusion that he got freedom by himself after meeting Gap Dong. Oh Maria said, “With this feeling, I feel I could do anything, stopping and also ending.”

However, there was no complete freedom as Ryu Tae Oh’s wish. He had a premonition of his death after seeing a male chasing him. I still remember this line, “I behaved too frivolously to Gap Dong. This couldn’t be stopped until I die.”

I wanted to show dramatic character change, since I acted wicked Ryu Tae Oh in the first stage and Ryu Tae Oh who wanted to become a human in the middle stage of the drama. I got the point of Ryu Tae Oh who wanted to get pitied in the last stage of the drama. He acts with the feeling that he has given up everything.

“The last of Ryu Tae Oh”

External image


It’s a bit brutal, right? Ryu Tae Oh gets stabbed by two killers at the front and behind. We rehearsed several times in order to prepare for the accident that could happen, even though it was a fake knife. We set the detail position where I get stabbed with junior actor, Lee Seung Ho.

I discussed the falling scene with PD Jo Soo Won. It’s a secret that the PD set all my flows in the first stage, but he assigned them all in the last stages. He encouraged me by saying, “Do as you want”.

External image


“Am I going to die now?”

External image


“You should stab me well”

External image


“I’m confident in acting of feeling pain”

External image


We went in shooting without practicing facial expressions in the past. It was a set acting. But since someday, I began to naturally act my facial expressions. This scene is also included. I did not fake my expressions. I acted out as if it was real by looking at the scripts, lying down on the floor.

External image


“It couldn’t be stopped”

External image


“before I die”

External image


“Shall I stress this part?”

External image


“I’m doing well on my own, right?”

External image


Kim Min Jung ran toward me finally. This scene is where Oh Maria sees the end of Ryu Tae Oh as his wish. I was closing my eyes, but my heart ached at her crying acting. It would become a decent scene thanks to her enthusiastic performance.

Shall we see the last scene of Ryu Tae Oh and Oh Maria again?

External image


Ryu Tae Oh : It was somehow weird that I could leave now. It’s like a dream, this freedom.
Ryu Tae Oh : Am I out now?
Ryu Tae Oh : Thank you for watching my end, not at the back, but in front.

External image


Kim Min Jung kept saying good words to me during the shooting. It is embarrassing to say with my own lips, but she said she was surprised by my reaction with lines. She said I was good at acting even though I’m a rooky. I got encouraged whenever I heard compliments from her. Thank you, Kim Min Jung.

External image


“I thank you so much~”

☞ Actually, I have the last shooting scene separately.

External image


Do you remember this scene? This is the image of Ryu Tae Oh with a foreigner at a temporal jail before he gets exiled. This was the last shooting scene of me in ‘Gap Dong’. I felt weird. I hesitated even though there was a cut sign from the PD, since I felt I had to move to the next shooting place….

External image


“Is the shooting really over?”

External image


“ You have done well, Ryu Tae Oh ”

External image


“Let’s take a picture~”

External image


“I received a bunch of flowers”

External image


“Let’s go to the after-party of the drama’s conclusion”

External image


This was at the after-party of the drama’s conclusion. I went to it by sitting up all through the night since I had to shoot movie, ‘Guest’. I couldn’t be there with my planned schedule. But I wanted to be there. I couldn’t drink due to the movie shooting next day, but I left many pictures with seniors.

Are you still curious about the answer of Ha Moo Yeom and Ma Ji Wool’s last question?

Um, if I was the real Ryu Tae Oh….

Ha Moo Yeom : I want to ask if you really wanted to stop.

Lee Joon : I could’ve stopped. Ryu Tae Oh believed that he could stop murdering, so he went to Gap Dong and mocked him. Ryu Tae Oh got murdered in the end, but he would’ve felt happy since he found freedom which he always wished.

Ma Ji Wool : I want to ask why you had to be that bad.

Lee Joon : I would’ve apologized to Ma Ji Wool that I’m sorry of being so bad until the very last. Ryu Tae Oh regretted making Ma Ji Wool do rock-paper-scissors. Would Ma Ji Wool have felt more comfortable if he didn’t erase ‘I’m sorry’ in the text…? But Ryu Tae Oh finally felt sorry in the last part.

Oh Maria : ………..

Lee Joon : Ryu Tae Oh always liked his teacher, but had hard time expressing his feelings. So he asked her to look at his end. He would’ve felt happy for the first time in his life since the teacher was next to him in his end.

‘Gap Dong’ was an adventure to me. It was a chance to test myself. I will do also from now on. I will become a developing actor. I have to get out of Ryu Tae Oh since I met a new character, but I hope you audiences remember him for a long time.

Ah, I will tell you one breaking news. I have been chosen as the youngest evaluator at ‘The 13th Mise-en-scene’s Short Film Festival’. Directors have recommended me to it. I’m deeply ashamed of myself. I will do my best for the film festival.
