According Varietyan audience member asked the couple how they relaxed after filming the anger-filled scenes.

“Our bodies shut down,” Yeun said.

“Steven and I broke out in hives after the show. Mine was on my face. His was all over his body because he’s that weak,” Wong said. “He definitely affected us, but we didn’t even realize it until after the show ended. I mean, I won’t even talk about what happened to your elbow.”
