"Do you still have feelings for me? Are you regretting you lost me after it's happened? Why are you badmouthing Bae Sung-hyun?" "It's only because I'm worried! You had a hard enough of a time by dating someone like me so I don't want to see you crying again!" The girl's heart aches over her new boyfriend and the ex-boyfriend takes the girl's side while taking shots of soju. This may seem incomprehensible, given that the two broke up after ten years of dating but in a weird way, it also almost seems understandable.
The filming for cable channel tvN's "In Need of Romance" took place at a pork rinds restaurant in Seoul on a pouring morning on July 11. The show, which goes better with a bitter shot of soju than sweet cake, showed well on this set as well. While a member of the crew worked hard at grilling meat in one corner of the restaurant, the drama's two main characters Cho Yeo-jung (Sunwoo In-young) and Kim Jeong-hoon (Kim Sung-soo) practiced their scene of bickering while slurring their speech with no focus in their eyes. And the emotions Sung-soo feels towards In-young who is in misery over Sung-hyun (Choi Jin-hyuk) was important in this scene so director Lee Chang-han gave detailed directions on this to Kim Jeong-hoon who did not let go of his script up till the very moment he goes into shoot. "Sung-soo, even the briefest single expression that you show will decide whether you'll be forgivable or not. You won't be forgiven easily nor immediately but I think it'll happen if you keep building on those emotions. The only way you can live is to bring out the details."
