Song Jae Rim, who acted as guard escort, Kim Jae Woon to Lee Hwon (played by Kim Soo Hyun) in MBC’s recently ended Wednesday-Thursday drama, The Moon That Embraces The Sun is seeing his popularity soar lately. His rising popularity is casting a spotlight on his past activities. Among these, the one that has been garnering the most interest is the image he portrayed in a music video with 2NE1′s CL.[ad#GA-468-img-Jo]
In 2010, Song Jae Rim starred as a bad guy in 2NE1′s Go Away music video. In the music video, Song Jae Rim portrayed the bad-guy role he had to play, to near-perfection when he angrily slapped CL in a scene.
Song Jae Rim recently met up with Newsen to speak further about a previous comment he made on the scene, “Bad guy… To be honest, at that time, even I felt that (scene) was too much”.
“That was the direction I received at that time,” Song Jae Rim said. “It’s my job. I didn’t really hit her. Because of the angle, it appeared like I did.”
He continues, “At that time, I thought this. The more of a jerk I act here, the more sympathy CL will receive. This was what I hoped to achieve and that was my intent. The worse I behave, the more pitiful the character CL was portraying in the music video will appear,” he explained.
Note: Parts that are not about CL have been omitted.
