An interview was conducted after their delightful photoshoot. Transformed into Bong Ye Bun, a whimsical vet in Behind Your Touch, Han Ji Min said, “This is my first real comedy. I was curious about how viewers would react to the genre combining comedy and thriller. Whenever the trailer came out, I recalled the shooting. I thought our show would become a meme-creator.”
Regarding why a comedy genre is needed, she conveyed, “There is nothing as challenging and rewarding as making someone laugh. In the moment of laughter, all worries and concerns vanish. If the viewers can burst into laughter at that moment, that’s the greatest joy as an actor.”
Lee Min Ki, who plays the elite detective Mun Jang Yeol in need of Ye Bun’s ability, chimed in, “When something unpleasant happens, the gloom spreads. But the bright energy quickly spreads among people. Such an algorithm of joy is needed,” explaining the reason works like Behind Your Touch are necessary.
He then confessed, “Honestly, I have the desire to make people laugh,” and revealed affection for his character. He commented, “As time passes and people change, (our) acting also changes. Mun Jang Yeol has simpler aspects than previous characters, exaggerated aspects unique to the comedy genre, and reckless aspects as well. I tried to incorporate Lee Min Ki’s everyday parts into him.”
Meanwhile, Behind Your Touch is a comic investigation drama showcasing the adventures of Bong Ye Bun, a vet who can see the past of animals and people, and elite detective Mun Jang Yeol.
