“Daebak” filming crews talked about the passionate acting of Jang Keun Suk.

In SBS Mon-Tue drama “Daebak” episode 6 aired on the 12th, Daegil (Jang Keun Suk), through his survival instinct, managed to stay alive having fell off a cliff after suffering from broken arms and legs and a knife stab.

Having lost his memory, he was sold as a slave and suffered beatings, and was even thrown into the faeces pit. Encountered a tiger in the mountains when rescuing a girl who was bullied in the middle of the night. Buried in the mud exposing only his face, munching eating crab. To the extent of chewing off a live snake due to extreme hunger.

An actor’s zealous acting could easily be masked in such dramatic scenes and storylines, Jang Keun Suk however displayed his perfect acting.

PD Nam Gun speaks about the stories behind episode 6 mud and snake scenes.

PD Nam through the agency said, “Both the mud and snake scenes were filmed as per the script, it was mentioned upfront during our first meeting with Jang Keun Suk that there will not be fake shots. Jang Keun Suk ironically was very happy and accepted the challenge readily, and felt good during the filming.”

The atmosphere was relaxed and happy during the filming of the mud scene. Prior to munching the crab, they have completed the filming the scene of eating the live snake, hence there is less burden. During the filming of the snake scene, all the production crews were very tensed, on the contrary, Jang Keun Suk would teased the staff to lighten the mood. He actually wasn’t successful in tearing the snake meat off on the first attempt but succeeded on the second, he acted without fear. As soon as that scene was completed, he received applauses from all the production crews.

He also cited Jang Keun Suk as an actor who exudes confidence.

“Jang Keun Suk is an amazing actor, no matter how tired he is physically or mentally, he always stays alert and diligent in his acting. Truly impressed by his humbleness and respect towards all the seniors and the production crews. He depicted the character of Daegil with great dedication. For me coming from the perspective of an audience, I am excited and looked forward to see the transformed Jang Keun Suk going forward”
