I collected the filmography of kkotminam representative Kang Dong Won. Having more female fans that anyone else, he is diligent enough to shoot one or two movies per year.

Let's look at the back story of some of his movies.

1- A Violent Prosecutor 

Kang Dong Won and Shin Hye Sun's kiss scene was not in the original script. It was added after opening an emergency meeting during shooting, and Kang Dong Won and Shin Hye Sun had to shoot a kiss scene without saying a word to each other.

2- The Priests

The piglet from The Priests cried so much during early filming that shooting couldn't proceed. However, the moment Kang Dong Won hugged him, he was silent and they resumed shooting.

3- Kundo: Age of The Rampant

In the fight scene where Kang Dong Won's long hair was released, Kang Dong Won wanted to keep the wig disheveled and messy. But the makeup team wanted him to look beautiful and managed to spray treatments on the wig. 

4- Too Beautiful To Lie

The scene of eating Cheongyang chilli pepper at the bachelor meeting was Kang Dong Won actually eating the chilli pepper for realism.

Kang Dong Won read the script for the first time on a plane to Bangkok, he re-read it 5 times. Although he tried to avoid crying, the crew saw him cry and brought him a towel.

8- M
