“There are no regulations or restrictions to what is broadcast through YouTube so we’ll be able to express our affection to each other in a deeper way. Hence, you’ll get to see a more natural-looking married couple,” Kim said with a smile of the newly produced online version of the drama which tells of the twos characters married life.
Directed by Hwang In-roi of “Goong” (MBC, 2006) and “The Return of the Iljimage” (MBC, 2009) fame, Kim and actress Jung So-min had starred in the TV show which ran for eight weeks from early September on public network MBC.
The TV show’s producer Group 8 and YouTube owner Google came together to create a YouTube version which was newly shot in seven ten-minute long episodes with the same cast and director from the TV show but with new or additional details.
Song Byung-joon, CEO of Group 8, explained that he focused on making each episode fun and distinctive since a TV drama has continuity to its story but it would not be the case for the web-based version.
Showing every Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, the online version of “Naughty Kiss” will premiere at 7 p.m. today and run till November 16. Two episodes containing behind the scenes clips will show on November 17 and 18.
