1. A GFB staff member who’s friends with a Korean fan told her(?) this.
Shin Woo Chul PD is famous for being cold and rigid among actors. But, he likes our Kang Chi a lot. They are always discussing and exchanging ideas on the filming set. So the atmosphere on the set is very happy and wonderful.

2. Another junior staff member confirmed that Shin PD was difficult to get along. He (?) has worked on a previous drama by Shin PD, and the atmosphere there was kind of heavy, not very good. He never thought things would change so much for GFB. Furthermore, actors who’ve worked with Shin PD say he is the kind who remains silent and wears a blank expression even when actors get a NG. That’s why actors were all in fear of him. But, Shin PD totally melted when exposed to our Born Communicator! During the filming of GFB, even when there was no NG, when Shin PD felt the scene was okay, our Kang Chi still asked him for a re-shoot. Kang Chi said he wanted to use a better way to interpret the scene. And Shin PD would reply kindly: Oh, really? Okay then. Let’s have another go.~~~~Whatever happened to PD Cold? ~~~~~~~

    LOL Thank you AnnMichelle for the translation. I noticed it when he kept looking at our Kang Chi with that loving gaze during the press conference. I thought ‘He must really like Seunggi’ and ‘He seems like a nice person’. Didn’t expect him to be cold 😀 He’s in my favourite pd list now along with PD Na and PD Park ^^

    Seung Gi really makes people fall in love with him in a big way….from Big Ceo to Polotician….he just swept us unaware until its too late….
    Well….we only a mere common mortal subject.
    Shin Pd eyes and smile gave away his feeling…
    Ah…we really can see through those pics that he completely fell to ‘uri Seung Gi’

    Thanks AnnMichelle. Seung Gi is talented, hardworking, sincere, polite, respectful, considerate, has a great sense of humour, popular, good-looking……….I doubt if there is any PD who does not enjoy working with him.

    Who can ressist our King Charming once you get to know him? He’s really loved by his directors and writers. I would also like to imagine too that HJW helped Seung Gi out by sharing Shin PD’s character as he was her director in SG.

    During the Press conf I was very impressed with Seung Gi’s eloquence and presentation. He’s definitely the best spokesperson for This new drama. Very pleased to see PD Shin appreciating our Beloved Seung Gi’s strength and talents! Hope Shin PD, Seung Gi and the entire cast have fun working and showing us a DAEBAK saguk drama!! Can’t wait to meet Kang Chi!!!

    I know he’s always had the whole noona killer image, but it’s always funny to see grown men fall in love with him just as much. He’s really something special.
