“Red Swan” Rain “Small eyes, I even fasted for eye acting”

Rain revealed efforts behind eye acting in "Red Swan"

On the morning of July 2nd, the press conference for Disney+’s original series “Red Swan” was held at Conrad Seoul in Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul. Attendees included actors Kim Ha-neul, Rain (Jung Ji-hoon), Jung Gyu-woon, Seo Yi-sook, Ki Eun-se and director Park Hong-kyun.

Rain, who plays Seo Do-yoon, a bodyguard of the Hwain family, shared, “I wanted the action scenes to look cool, so I had many conversations with the martial arts director. I paid a lot of attention to these aspects during filming.”

He added, “Instead of having many cuts, we aimed for long takes to show the full scope of the action. I haven’t seen the final product yet, so I’m looking forward to it.”

Rain, who had to portray deep emotions toward Wan-soo (Kim Ha-neul) even in extreme situations, confessed, “It was very challenging. When you’re sad, you have to show sadness; when you’re lonely, you have to show loneliness, but I couldn’t use words and had to convey everything with my eyes. That was difficult.

Confident in his “eye acting”, Rain said, “I have small eyes, so to prevent them from swelling, I fasted the night before or ran for 30 minutes before shooting.

“Red Swan” tells about Wan-soo, who dreamed of a perfect life in the upper class by marrying the heir of Hwain Group, encountering Do-yoon, a bodyguard who wants to protect her, and facing the secret of Hwain Family.
