The recently ended KBS drama 'Moonlight Drawn by Clouds' received warnings and even underwent review by a censorship committee due to several "inappropriate" scenes of underage actress Kim Yoo Jung. To News 1, Kim Yoo Jung spoke up about the issue, especially the kiss scenes, and revealed her thoughts. 

She said, "[During the time of filming the kiss scene], I wasn't overwhelmed because I'm underage, but I was worried about the viewers' reactions. Since I debuted as a child actress, many elders love me like their granddaughter, so I was curious to how they will perceive it."

Kim Yoo Jung continued, "[Rather than my young age], I was worried about the kiss scene where both of us had Sangtu (ordinary hairstyle for men during the Joseon dynasty). The kiss scene in the last episode came out really pretty though. Kiss scenes like that with a woman and the prince are very pretty, but the kiss where both of us are with Sangtu was worrisome. But thankfully, it came out youthful and good overall."

    Well there isn't a big gape so I'm not totally uncomfortable with that kiss scene. But still, underage kid kissing adult actor is a bit concerning...

    You must have not heard of that other drama, Let's fight Ghost, where the girl lead (Kim So Hyun, Kim Yoo Jung's close friend in real life) is just 17 and the guy, Taecyeon from 2PM, is 28. And they had a lot more kiss scenes. While there were some who complained, majority saw it more brightly.

    no i seen a lot of people bring that up. You must not see that I'm not entirely complainging because I stated in my comment that I agree it's just acting. I just find the age differences a bit odd.

    There's not a big difference between 4-6 years. It's not like they're 15 years apart. They are both from the 90's they're both from the same generation. And in the drama they were around the same age.

    okay.. in the drama. Im not sure if you're reading my comment correctly?? like i know it's acting and I'm chill with it. but in real life 6 years is a big difference, like would you be cool if your 15 y/o started dating a 21 y/o i mean they are from the same generation.

    She is still below 19 tho. She is still a child actress. I'm surprised some people said it is ok cause it's like college boy dating a high school student. Would you allow your sister in high school (below 18 years old at that) making out with a sophomore/3rd year college student? I don't think so. Having a relationship yes, but I bet you would put boundaries to what they can do. Point is she is not at that age to be doing this thing yet.

    No the age of consent is NOT 13. Just how bloody barbaric do you think we are? The age of consent is 19, Korean age.

    If you want to do it on you personal space fine with it. But this show is being aired. It would set certain examples outside and will set a certain trend. Young girls are more vulnerable then what it seems. It's even harder to protect them now and then if you're putting this kind of situation in, the circumstances will be even harder. People will said they can seduce an older guy etc etc. If you get what I'm trying to say now you'll understand where am I going. This time around, I agree with what the board did because she's still a damn child actress. They need to be protected until they're are at the age where they can take care of themselves.

    I said apparently and blame allkpop for that thats what they told everyone on here, when they put up about that 13 year old with disabilities or what ever having sex several times with someone, and they were complaining about her disability rather than her age, because they said that 13 was legal for consentual sex..

    It's 19. The law has changed. It's 19. I don't know how many more times I have to tell people that don't even live here. Do you actually think it's okay for a 30 year old man to have sex with a 13 year old girl or the other way around and it be legal?

    Of course i dont think its ok for a 30 yr old man to have sex with a 13 yr old i dont even think its right for anyone under 18, well thats a stupid that S Korea even had that law in the first place 13, is actually sick, but anyway you dont have to live in a country to know there law and my BF is from S Korea and he dont know all there laws

    I don't care about your boyfriend. And you just admitted he didn't know all the laws yet you insist he knows it's 13. How much sense does that make to anybody? The age of consent in Korea is 19. It's 13 in Kentucky ... but not in S Korea.

    Yeah I agree. I don't see the big deal. It wasn't like the kiss scenes were really physical.
