Jang Geun Suk revealed how he felt during the scene when he had to chew on a real snake for the SBS drama 'Daebak'.
At the press conference for the drama on May 20, Jang Geun Suk said, "I was already expecting hard work and heard the script writer's thorough explanations beforehand, so I had trust and decided to follow no matter what."
He continued talking about the difficult scenes, saying, "When there was a hard scene, I started by wondering if I am capable to do them. Out of the many that required my great focus, there was never a scene this hard. It really allowed me the time to rethink my job as an actor."
Jang Geun Suk then brought up the snake eating scene. He said, "It wasn't that hard eating snakes and stuff. When the red light comes on the camera, there is a pressure to portray something. In 'The Royal Gambler', I just chewed on a live crab, but later on when I think about it, I can feel vomit coming up my throat." He also added, "At first I doubted that it'll be a real snake, but they actually brought one, so I filmed it with a real snake."
