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."

Did you watch 'Moonlight Drawn by Clouds'?

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...

Hyeriioo Thursday, October 27, 2016

Pedo pervert!!!!!!!I do not agree to pedo Hang out in my country!!!!!!

nctu_127 Thursday, October 27, 2016

its not just about her age. Her leading male actor is a shit ton older than her soo... thats a bit odd but I mean its just acting ._. but korean standards are different from americas so who am I to say anything :3

fantasticlau nctu_127 Thursday, October 27, 2016

6 years is a shit ton? Wtf?

nctu_127 fantasticlau Thursday, October 27, 2016

yeah.. normal ranges are from 2-4 years older. mind you i said normal.

Kit_Sidney nctu_127 Thursday, October 27, 2016

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.

nctu_127 Kit_Sidney Thursday, October 27, 2016

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.

fantasticlau nctu_127 Thursday, October 27, 2016

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.

nctu_127 fantasticlau Friday, October 28, 2016

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.

They would be a very cute couple

jpnAyelor Wednesday, October 26, 2016

Luckyyy& also her Korean age is 19

jpnAyelor Wednesday, October 26, 2016

*18

jpnAyelor Wednesday, October 26, 2016

Plus in America kids on nickolodeon shows are like 13 and kissing

DZico jpnAyelor Thursday, October 27, 2016

in america kids have sex before they even get their periods , america have to put some strick rules that's why they have many kids being teen parents and drop out school . it's ridiculous .

MyTwoCent DZico Thursday, October 27, 2016

oh please...u act as if sk kids are so pure and innocent-waiting til marriage and all. uh huh whatever lol

slebony Wednesday, October 26, 2016

yes technically she is a child, but c'mon 16. and a kiss? so what about singers dressing sexy for their age? nothing wrong.

abthurd Wednesday, October 26, 2016

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.

shyloone abthurd Wednesday, October 26, 2016

apparently the age for consentual sex is 13 so dont know why anyone is really complaing about that little kiss , dont think no tongue was involved lol, b

shyloone Wednesday, October 26, 2016

complaining

Happypeoo abthurd Wednesday, October 26, 2016

I had 24 boyfriend when i was 17...

bangeryun94 shyloone Wednesday, October 26, 2016

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.

abthurd Happypeoo Thursday, October 27, 2016

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.

shyloone bangeryun94 Thursday, October 27, 2016

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..

shyloone Thursday, October 27, 2016

The age of consent is 13.[72][73] According to Section 305 of the Criminal Law of the Republic of Korea

shyloone bangeryun94 Thursday, October 27, 2016

Wait your wrong an even my Bf said its younger than 19 but hes not sure what exact age is, an heres what i came up with The age of consent is 13.[72][73] According to Section 305 of the Criminal Law of the Republic of Korea

bangeryun94 shyloone Thursday, October 27, 2016

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?

shyloone bangeryun94 Thursday, October 27, 2016

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

bangeryun94 shyloone Thursday, October 27, 2016

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.

hiroonakamura Wednesday, October 26, 2016

it's weird how they had an underage kid have makeout scenes with an adult man. highly uncomfortable

minwooswifey19 hiroonakamura Wednesday, October 26, 2016

makeout??? this is called acting for a reasson and they chosde her for reason case she's good and she chose this project for her own reasons nobody forced a kiss scene down her throat she just did her job dont make it seem perverted

nctu_127 minwooswifey19 Thursday, October 27, 2016

chill. this person is entitled to their own opinion sucks to suck you don't agree with it.

minwooswifey19 nctu_127 Thursday, October 27, 2016

just because i gave my opinion in response to hers its not big deal im entitled to that who cares if i dont agree w/ it i have that right to express my disagreement. at the end of day both our opinions wont change so y did u feel the need to make this statement.

nctu_127 minwooswifey19 Friday, October 28, 2016

i can ask you the same thing :3 why did you feel the need to message back?

qybbomi Wednesday, October 26, 2016

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