Koo Hye Sun confessed that she had to break up with her boyfriend while filming for the 2009 hit drama Boys Over Flowers.
On November 8, Koo Hye Sun revealed her daily life in MBC’s Omniscient Interfering View.
While having a meal with her agency CEO and his son, who is also her manager, Koo recalled her Boys Over Flowers days. The head of her agency, who was her manager back then, said, “At the time, there was an intense battle over the cast lineup. Almost all actresses pitched for the role. I also beat a path to the production company’s door.”
Recalling the time, Koo Hye Sun said, “I can only remember the hardships. But at the time, I had no time to complain. What’s really annoying was that I would get hit by eggs and flour would have been poured all over me, then at the last scene, the guys would appear in flashy clothes and still the show.”
She also added, “When I was filming for the scene where I dived into the pool, I hurt my head and had a concussion. But I had to continue filming. Because if I stopped, the drama wouldn’t be able to air on schedule. Then, about a week later, I started feeling nauseous and dizzy, then I eventually fainted. To make matters worse, I was involved in a car accident.” Koo continued, “Back then, you had to be brave to be an actor. If you said you couldn’t do it, then you were no longer an actor. So it was an endless routine of getting hurt and going to hospital.”
Soon, Koo Hye Sun shared another episode that involved her boyfriend at the time. Explaining that she didn’t have cell phone reception in New Caledonia, where the drama’s gorgeous island scenes were filmed, Koo said, “I had a boyfriend back then, but I couldn’t get in touch with him for a week. I explained the situation to him, but he didn’t believe me. I think he thought that saying there was no cell reception was just an excuse. So we broke up.”
