Jang Dong Yoon and Kang Tae Oh currently star as Jeon Nok Du and Lord Cha Yul Mu respectively in the drama Tale of Nokdu, and fans are loving the chemistry between the two actors…as well as their characters!
The drama storyline consists of how Nok Du disguises himself as a woman (named Nok Soon) in order to enter a mysterious all-female community, and meets Dong Dong Joo (Kim So Hyun), a gisaeng-in-training who does not want to be a gisaeng at all.
On the October 14 episode of the drama, Nok Du, as Nok Soon, has to pretend to be in love with Cha Yul Mu in order to prevent his cover from being blown. The two characters have a lot of notable(read: romantic) interactions, like Nok Du falling asleep on Yul Mu’s back while riding on a horse together:
Or when Yul Mu helped Nok Du off the horse:
Fans of the drama, however, note this particular scene as the most memorable:
Tale of Nokdu even released a behind-the-scenes video of the two actors rehearsing the scene over-and-over, with Jang Dong Yoon arguing hilariously with Kang Tae Oh about why he has to keep his mouth open during the kiss:
