Before many K-dramas are broadcast, it is a common practice to hold a Prayer Ceremony to wish its success. These is a video and photos of the the ceremony held for “Take Care of the Young Lady.”
I found a video of the ceremony! It’s very interesting to watch…I wish it had captions in English!
Video Cr. Star News
Here are the photos: Cr. On photos.
Right after the Ceremony, the cast and crew were treated by Yoon Sang-hyun fans to hot soup! That’s right HOT soup! During the hottest days of the year, something referred to as “sambok” days, people believe that eating a Samgyetang is really good for your health. Remember Samgyetang from a previous post? It is a chicken stuffed with rice and spice soup in which there is ginseng.
I am not sure if on this day Yoon Eun-hye fans also treated the crew to cold drinks and lunch. Jung II-woo? Jung II-woo fans were the first to treat the crew to dduk (rice cakes) and snacks earlier in the month while commemorating Ilwoo’s thousandth day in the business.
Jung II-woo in turn gave the cast and crew 150 shirts to show his gratitude. It was a really hot summer and in Jung II-words: “In this constant heat and tight filming schedule, the ones suffering the most are the staff. I prepared this gift with a thankful spirit as we all hope for a successful run for the drama.”
These are the photos of the Jung II-woo and Soon Sang-hyun enjoying their Samgyetang lunch.
I thought this is quite a beautiful tradition until I watched the video and saw the pig head. Is there a need for that really…? I understand it when it happened you know like 400BCE, but in 2009? Maybe I’m over sensitive because I just watched Okja? It upset me a lot…
