South Korean singer and actor Seo In Guk has opened up about his thoughts starring in Shopping King Louie. The MBC drama broke its own record of highest TV rating and continues to gain popularity.

During an interview with Ilgan Sports, Guk talked about the rise in ratings. He said: "Whenever I feel that 'Shopping King Louie' is getting love from more people I feel very happy. Despite working hard and staying up all night, I gain strength when I think of how more and more people are starting to love our drama."

Guk had also shared his thoughts on the kiss scenes with Nam Ji Hyun during a press conference. He said: "Kiss scenes are one of the flowers of a drama. For the kiss scene to be beautiful, there has to have been a backstory between the characters. Fortunately, Louie and Bok Sil's story together was beautiful leading up to the kiss scene, and that's why I think the kiss scene was also beautiful. It's a relief that it came out well."

The 29-year-old actor continued: "I don't prepare when filming kiss scenes. That's because the kiss scene is different from the overall plot. Beyond a doubt, what viewers extract is the love story within the kiss scene."

"I think the story plays a big role [in how a kiss scene turns out]. When filming kiss scenes, I prefer my co-star and I to be completely immersed in the moment rather than being calculating. I think [the kiss scenes] turned out well because we made it fit our chemistry and the characters," he said.
