tvN’s “Doom at Your Service” has revealed a behind-the-scenes look at the recent episodes!
The fantasy romance is about an ordinary woman named Tak Dong Kyung (Park Bo Young), who calls for ruin (myulmang) upon the world when she finds out she only has 100 days to live. Instead she gets Myul Mang (Seo In Guk), the mysterious god of death and destruction, who offers her a dangerous contract.
The video begins with Park Bo Young and Seo In Guk at the hospital, where Seo In Guk’s character becomes a doctor. He takes advantage of the rehearsal to joke around with Park Bo Young, shining the flashlight close to her eyes and her ear. Park Bo Young plays along, but glares at him and jokingly swears to get revenge. Seo In Guk also has fun tossing her phone at her as he walks by, but after the cameras begin rolling, he tosses it so carelessly that Park Bo Young drops it to the ground. The director scolds him afterwards, saying, “I knew you’d throw it like that.” Park Bo Young asks him to throw more carefully, but Seo In Guk gives the excuse that he doesn’t want to hurt her.
Next, the pair moves outside to rehearse a kiss scene as the director guides them through their lines. At the end of the scene, Park Bo Young runs away at the director’s signal. At first, Seo In Guk wonders where she went, but soon finds her hiding behind a tree. When they begin filming, Seo In Guk forgets to stay inside the frame, earning himself yet another lighthearted scolding from the director. Finally, they successfully film the important kiss that brings back their characters’ memories.
Seo In Guk and Park Bo Young then work on the tones conveyed through their voices in the next scene. The director compliments them on their tones, commenting dryly that they understood his directions even though they were awful. When Seo In Guk attempts to compliment him in return, the director pretends to ignore him as he points to the next location. Seo In Guk and Park Bo Young also practice the positioning of their hug, with Park Bo Young commenting that it’s just like the drama’s poster. Park Bo Young also grows jealous when Seo In Guk is complimented for his scene, telling the camera with a smile, “I want to be loved too.”
The pair are also in good spirits when filming their goodbye kiss scene, with Seo In Guk unable to hold back his laughter as the strong wind complicates their scene. Park Bo Young jokes, “This world really is doomed.” However, they shake off their laughter as soon as filming begins, completing the emotionally-charged scene in a professional manner.
The video ends with a bonus clip showing Park Bo Young’s struggle to pin Shin Do Hyun, who is much taller than her, against a wall. The director suggests standing up on her tiptoes and hitting the wall with force. When Park Bo Young makes another attempt at the move, the director comments that the tiptoes are the key point of the scene. Park Bo Young just smiles as she laments her aching calf muscles and asks, “What if I can’t come back down?”
