Namgoong Min, Lee Chung Ah, and Seolhyun get energized by a cute puppy during filming for “Awaken”. That makes fans feel funny!
“Awaken” is a murder mystery drama that will follow the connections between mysterious events unfolding in the present and the secrets behind an enigmatic incident that took place in a village 28 years ago.
Namgoong Min kicks off the video as he films his individual scenes in what looks like an abandoned building. He exudes all the confidence and charisma of his character Do Jung Woo, the eccentric and brilliant team leader of a special task force at the National Police Agency.
AOA’s Seolhyun then joins the shoot, playing the passionate police officer Gong Hye Won. They have to film a scene where Do Jung Woo is surrounded by the police, including Gong Hye Won, pointing their guns at him. While they’re cheerful before the scene, the mood on the set becomes intense as soon as the cameras are rolling.
Afterward, Namgoong Min teases Seolhyun by saying, “You were going to play a joke, right?” Seolhyun laughs and insists she wasn’t.
Lee Chung Ah later arrives to film her scenes as FBI agent Jamie. Her character was adopted as a young child and returns to Korea to solve the serial killer case connected to her lost memories of her childhood from 28 years ago.
She’s given something to eat by the child actors, but she kindly looks after them and insists that they eat it themselves. After a closeup shot, she charmingly asks if she can do another take.
The video next shows the three stars taking photos for the drama’s posters, which have separate themes of “day” and “night” to fit with the Korean title of the show (“Day and Night”).
On the set during the day, Seolhyun is charmed by an adorable puppy while off-camera. She laughs as it heads toward the camera and says, “It’s aware of the camera!”. During their night shoot, Namgoong Min and Lee Chung Ah visit with the puppy during their break, and they smile as Lee Chung Ah gives it a pet. The caption describes that they hung out with the puppy until right before the shoot.
Watch them create their teasers and posters below!
