Actress Gong Hyo-jin said she had a hard time kissing actor Jo In-sung in her latest rom-com “It’s Okay, That’s Love” because of his “big nose.”

The rom-com queen said, “His nose is so big that it keeps poking my eyes during the kiss scene,” driving the audience into laughter during SBS talk show “Midnight TV Entertainment” on Wednesday.

Jo, although embarrassed, immediately struck back, “I downsized my nose but I guess it was not enough,” rationalizing his aggressive nose. Actors Sung Dong-il and Lee Kwang-soo, who represented the drama with Gong and Jo, also burst into laughter.

Sung, 48, complained that he has not had a single kiss scene, except in film “Hearty Paws 2 (2010)” when he “kissed” the dog. The actor debuted in 1991.
