Since the premiere of SBS‘s new Webtoon adapted K-Drama Business Proposal, everyone just can’t get enough. With each new episode, it continues to rise in popularity due to its romantic-comedy storyline, charming cast, and iconic moments. It’s certainly taking all of the K-Drama tropes we know and doing everything right with them!
The SBS drama (premieres simultaneously on Netflix) follows Shin Ha Ri (Kim Se Jeong), who pretends to be her friend on a blind date. However, that blind date happens to be with the CEO of her company, Kang Tae Moo (Ahn Hyo Seop)! The troubles start when Tae Moo unexpectedly sets his eyes on marrying Ha Ri, still thinking she is her friend.
The drama is filled with tons of hilarious moments as not only are the writers skilled at jokes, but each actor has excellent comedic timing. It turns out the actors deserve even more credit…
One of the most iconic moments thus far in Business Proposal is the “slap scene” in Episode 6. By this time, Tae Moo has recognized that his feelings for Ha Ri are real but is unsure how to communicate them to her. So, he sets up some dates disguised as business trips, such as a movie screening, claiming it was for research purposes. Yet, viewers could tell it was clearly meant to be a date as he picked out snacks for them and rented out the most expensive theater.
Still, Ha Ri ended up running into coworkers at the cinema. So, she returned to the theater to warn him that they would need to be careful not to run into them.
Yet, the two coworkers ended up wandering into their theater. Ha Ri slapped Tae Moo’s face continually in a panic, signaling him to move out.
This physical comedy and Ahn Hyo Seop’s facial reactions were too hilarious. It’s become one of the viewers’ favorite scenes of the whole K-Drama thus far.
It’s even become a new meme!
Well, it turns out that we may have Kim Se Jeong to thank for it…
SBS uploaded a new behind-the-scenes video of Business Proposal Episode 6. In it, we see what really went down as the actors filmed the movie theater scene.
By the looks of it, Kim Se Jeong had improvised the slap!
The way Ahn Hyo Seop handled it was perfect too. He’s a true gentleman.
Kim Se Jeong Caption: (So sorry)
Ahn Hyo Seop: I’m gonna go watch you from over there while touching/soothing my cheek.
Caption: Tae Moo makes a joke to stop Ha Ri from feeling so sorry
After filming it, Se Jeong apologized for slapping Hyo Seop. Thankfully, he made a sacrifice for the art!
It’s all making sense now… Despite being absolutely hilarious, the slap didn’t feel forced or fake as some outlandish moments can sometimes.
Fans applaud the actors for this scene as a result. Kim Se Jeong and Ahn Hyo Seop are comedic geniuses!
Ahn Hyo Seop and Kim Se Jeong’s chemistry has actually influenced another scene. Read about it below:
