On February 13th Netflix Korea posted a video on its YouTube account featuring an interview with the film’s leading stars, Seohyun and Lee Jun-young. The interviews appear to have been conducted separately, as Seohyun and Lee Jun-young are not on-screen at the same time, though the video is edited in such a way as to make their answers seem like responses to each other.
English subtitles are not available as of this writing
The style of the interview is also extremely fast. The video is only four minutes long, and questions appear very briefly in subtitles at the bottom of the screen to which the stars react. Lee Jun-youngfor example, is asked if he has confidence, and he very quickly replies that he does not. Seohyun is also asked if she is ready, to which she quickly replies that she is, with immediate fanfare and a switch to a clip from the film under discussion.
Other comments about the film are presented without preceding questions, with Seohyun calling something charming and Lee Jun-young talking about large dogs. The video mostly proceeds without clear spoilers, with references to glasses or stomping being presented with minimal context. Seohyun also took a moment to thank fans for sending her a coffee car. “Love and Leashes” was released internationally on Netflix this past February 11th.
