Protect the Boss Ji Sung and Kim Jaejoong. Generous Gifts of Group Meals. Indeed, They are Directors of Headquarters
Ji Sung and Kim Jaejoong of the SBS Wed-Thursday drama Protect the Boss have each bought a group meal for the production crew— as good friends.
Ji Sung playing Cha Jihun provided for the production crew and the appearing cast a meal that neared in quantity to feed 100 persons in the filming that took place recently in SBS Ilsan Production Center. This was suggested by Ji Sung in order to commemorate the fact that the episode aired on August 11 had recorded 18.7% in Seoul on AGB Neilson Media Research and thus had taken the #1 spot among Wed-Thurs dramas.
Ji Sung revealed: “I always wanted to share a meal with the production crew who work so hard—but due to having to manage the scheduled filimings that had piled up because of the frequent rain, we did not get to have a proper group meal. I felt great being the #1 drama in ratings. Thanks to that, I am so happy that we are able to have a conversation through a meal.”
Then a member of production staff jokingly questioned and made everyone laugh: “Can we keep calling group meals if Boss keeps on being the #1 drama?”
Continuing, Kim Jaejoong playing Cha Muwon provided samgyetang (T/N: whole-chicken soups with medicial herbs) for malbok on the 13th (T/N: “malbok” is a day on which Koreans usually eat a dish that is especially nourishing to the body) and received great cheer from the production crew.
At this, one of the production crew did not spare his bragging: “If you just look at how the warm sentiment of the actors treating (the staff) to a meal one by one, you can tell that the teamwork of the Boss team is excellent. From now on also, we will keep on making the best of dramas with good teamwork.”
