Another day, another Reply 1988 content that will make you soft: Go Kyung Pyo, who played Sun Woo in the iconic K-drama, recently thanked his onscreen eomma (and our fave ahjumma!), Kim Sun Young, for sending a coffee truck to the drama set for his upcoming series, Private Lives!
The actor posted on Instagram a photo of his Reply 1988 mom’s gift, and an image of the award-winning actress (which you have probably seen in a lot of dramas). Sun Young’s message was included in the truck’s banner, which reads: “I hope that all the cast and crew of the drama Private Lives will wrap up filming in good health! I’m cheering on actor Go Kyung Pyo.” She also wishes the drama’s cast and crew to “enjoy and hang in there.” Sweet!
In a translation by Soompi, Kyung Pyo showed his gratitude by captioning the IG post with: “Support I received from mom Sun Young. I was so grateful for this gift during our late-night filming. I’ll get my strength up as I film. Thank you.” This was followed by the hashtags “Actress Kim Sun Young,” “Reply 1988,” “Sun Woo’s family,” and “Kim Sun Young.” We love an onscreen family that never forgets!
In case you’re curious, sending food and coffee trucks is a touching gesture in South Korea. Since filming is tedious and takes a lot of time to finish, the cast and crew are sure to be energized with the goods served from these trucks. This is a way of supporting and showing concern to a certain actor, given by his friends and fans. In return, the actor posts a thank you letter to them, along with a photo. Last month, Kyung Pyo also thanked his fellow Seven Years of Night actor, Ryu Seung Ryong, for sending a comforting gift. He also received a food truck in July from his fans.
Kyung Pyo will play the lead in the JTBC drama Private Lives (his first drama after being discharged from the military) alongside Girls’ Generation’s Seohyun. It revolves around the story of con artists. On the other hand, Kim Sun Young appeared in the recent drama Backstreet Rookie, and will star in KBS’ weekend series, Oh! Samkwang Villa.
We wish all the best for Sun Woo and his eomma’s new pursuits!
