On July 12th, actor Song Joong Ki and actress Park Bo Young held a press conference at the Seoul Yongsan CGV theatre for their dubbing roles in the animated film, ‘Rio‘.
‘Rio’ tells the story about the sufferings of the last living macaw bird, ‘Blu‘ (Song Joong Ki), who travels to Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro to mate with the only living female match, ‘Jewel‘ (Park Bo Young).
When Song Joong Ki was asked, “There were rumors that you memorized the script when you dubbed?“. He responded, “I memorized the entire script? That’s just what PR was saying. Overall, I memorized the outline and didn’t go into memorizing the details. During the filming process, I improvised a lot, which was the fun part.”
Park Bo Young also mentioned in the press conference, “When Song Joong Ki did his parts before I did, I felt pressure on me grow as I saw how well he did. When Song Joong Ki was doing the ‘Tico Taco ya ya ya’ part especially, I went home and looked at the scenario again and practiced before I went to dub.”
‘Rio’ is set to be released in Korea on July 28th. Meanwhile, you can check out the photos from the press conference below.
