This because, again, here we have this almost 30 years old guy - who happens to be one of the hottest hallyu stars, oozing sexiness as much as he oozes cuteness - giggling and blushing, _really_ blushing below the CGI's blush, and looking shy and downright adorable while telling the interviewer that while filming the couch scene he burst out laughing because Hyunie was too sexy.
And the "sexy" thing was already something in itself. Because it's not a comment you often hear from actors talking about their co-star, and because it went against Wookie's usual pattern up to that moment: always nice and supporting words for his leading ladies, but at the same time always careful to avoid anything that might fuel rumors.
Still, if this had been a written interview I concede that a doubt would have lingered in my mind about how to interpret his words: did he burst into laughter because the young, innocent girl acting all grown up and sexy was actually ridiculous? Was he teasing her about that?
But no. Despite too many cuts in the footage of that interview that make it difficult to dive into a proper analysis of the flow of the whole thing (so I will forever wonder, among other things, what was the actual question this time ) his giggling and blushing while narrating the anedocte were there for everyone to see and instantly dispelled any possible doubt, and said everything that needed to be said. He wasn't making fun of her, he wasn't teasing her. He was just telling her (and the interviewer, and all the viewers) that she was indeed sexy, and he was affected by it to the point of turning into a giggling schoolboy at the mere memory. And not just that: he was showing her (and us) that he didn't mind one bit and that he was also OK saying it in public, even at the risk of being misunderstood.
This just feels so sweet.
