Watcha’s drama, “Semantic Error,” was well-liked by its audience and quickly rose to the Watcha Top 10 after its release. Due to the popularity of the original web novel, “Semantic Error” was produced as a series of webtoons and animations before being adapted into a drama. It depicts the romance story of introverted Chu Sang-woo (Park Jae-Chan) and his outgoing personality, Jang Jae-young (Park Seo-Ham) on the college campus.
Park Seo-Ham and Park Jae-Chan stated that they began filming after reading the original novel as many times as they could. “Except for the genre BL, the script itself was so much fun,” Park Jae-Chan said. “It was close to a young, vibrant campus. In fact, I believe the barrier to entry into the BL genre is low.“
“I felt at ease just because it was BL,” Park Seo-Ham said. “I didn’t worry much and didn’t feel pressured because I thought I should try and fail rather than not try and regret it.”
While starring in “Semantic Error,” the two became “best friends.” They even swap clothes. Park Jae-Chan started his personal SNS just before the release of “Semantic Error,” and his first post was a photo of him wearing Park Seo-Ham’s clothes. Fans reacted to the two people’s Instagrams as “Lovestagram.”
The original novel “Semantic Error” is “rated 19,” so teenagers cannot see it, but the drama “Semantic Error” was set to “12 years old” in consideration of public accessibility. However, there is a passionate kissing scene that confirms the two’s romance. The two hinted at a behind-the-scenes story about the kissing scene.
“When I was filming the kiss scene, I really thought about whether or not to drink,” Park Seo-Ham explained. “In the end, I told myself, ‘Let’s just have a drink.'”
He continued, “We talked a lot before the shoot. The waiting room was a stir-fried squid restaurant. We didn’t want to delay shooting the kissing scene because it was such an important scene in the drama. We practiced different angles and kept looking at each other’s faces in front of the camera at the squid stir-fried house.“
The audience is already anticipating whether or not there will be another season. The two shared their thoughts on Season 2 of “Semantic Error.”
“There are a lot of fight scenes in season 1, so I hope there will be more sweet scenes in season 2,” Park Seo-ham said. Park Jae-chan laughed, “If season 2 is the theme of getting married, I think there will be endless stories stemming from that marriage.”
