“Comedy” road rage meat It’s coming to Netflix on April 6, and it’s probably not a very early moment for stars Stephen Yeun and Ali Wong, who may have felt relieved to do so. Speaking at South By Southwest Q&A (via diverse), Yoon stated that their bodies were “sealed” when they finished filming, and Wong added that they both “broke out in hives” after filming. “I had mine on my face. It was covering his entire body because he is so weak,” Wong explained. She also indicated that something gross had happened to Yoon’s elbow, but she didn’t elaborate for the sake of the audience.
meat, which comes from creator Lee Sung Jin, stars Yeun and Wong as two people involved in a road rage incident (he almost got back into her car, or maybe she almost hit him while she backed out?). No matter who is really at fault, a series of insults and insults turn into full-blown hostility as they systematically try to destroy each other. It’s like one of those funny TV prank wars, only sometimes it doesn’t look very funny (we put “comedy” in quotes there, and the show is described as a “comedy-drama”).
Gene also noted during his SXSW appearance that the road rage incident on the show was based on something that really happened to him, where someone in a luxury SUV honked and yelled before driving away. Like Yeun on the show, he decided to follow them afterward, but said it “didn’t end like the show did — that’s why I’m here, able to talk to you today — but it definitely made me think about how we live in such subjective realities where we’re introduced to people We don’t know them.”
