- Ejay Falcon shares his experience working with Koreans on the K-Drama series ‘Where Stars Land.”
- The actor was impressed with how a Korean production works.
- He said that he can’t even find time to take a bath because the production’s timetable is very strict.
Ejay Falcon and Lauren Young recently flew to Korea to shoot the Korean drama “Where Stars Land.”
Ejay’s role was a Filipino who faked his passport just to see his wife (Lauren Young) in Korea.
The actor explained that the project’s production team is very strict when it comes to time management. In fact, he can’t even find time to take a bath in his hotel because the call time is too early.
He shared, “Nung una nangangapa ako, kasi pagka-land ko, pagdating ko doon ng mga four in the morning, sabi ko, ‘Pwede po bang mag-hotel para maligo?’
“Wala raw kasi 6 AM calltime ko, kailangan na akong kunan.
“So walang ligo, wala lahat. So sabi ko, sige gawin ko na.
“Buti na lang ‘yung role ko, depressed, hindi kagwapuhan, so sumakto siya, lapot-lapot.”
The actor also shared that he did his own research about K-Drama and how a Korean production works.
“Pinakwento ko muna, and then tinanong ko muna kung papaano sila magtrabaho sa Korea kasi alam ko na ang daming differences like yung language barrier natin.
“So, ang daming adjustment na gagawin ko. Kaya talagang nag-aral muna ako and kaunting research about K-dramas.”
Ejay is grateful to the production team for inviting him to be part of the series.
Having to work with a Korean production for the first time, and realizing how great the team is, the actor was immediately tempted to do more Korean drama.
“Sabi ko nga nung nandun ako, ‘Baka pwede naman kung may role (pa) kayo mag-audition ako,’ kasi okay din talaga sa kanila, maganda magtrabaho sa kanila.”
The episode of “Where Stars Land” where Ejay Falcon and Lauren Young appeared aired on October 9 on SBS Korea.
