Seo Kang Joon and Gong Seung Yeon talked about their first leading roles in a publicly broadcasted network and what it was like to work with each other.

On May 31, upcoming KBS drama “Are You Human, Too?” held a press conference ahead of their premiere, with the director and cast members such as Seo Kang Joon, Gong Seung Yeon, Lee Joon Hyuk, Park Hwan Hee, Kim Sung Ryung, and Yoo Oh Sung in attendance.

The drama is notably both Seo Kang Joon and Gong Seung Yeon’s first lead roles in a drama broadcasted on a public, terrestrial broadcasting station.

Seo Kang Joon plays the two roles of human Nam Shin, and his robot counterpart Namsin III. On his dual roles, he commented, “I felt quite a lot of pressure because so many people have put their efforts into [creating] the drama. I was worried about whether I’d be able to do well.” He explained that whenever he felt this way, he would focus on being faithful to the acting itself.

He also talked about how Gong Seung Yeon had helped him a lot. Seo Kang Joon shared, “We’re the same age, so I felt comfortable. Since I’m playing two roles, there were times when I got things mixed up. She helped me feel the differences in acting between the roles. The other actors were a great source of strength as well.”

Gong Seung Yeon also shared her thoughts as she stated, “I thought I was being given more than I deserved. So I took it on with a continuously grateful heart.” On her co-star Seo Kang Joon, she commented, “It was the first time acting with someone my age. He’s got a lot of great energy.”

“Are You Human, Too?” will air its first episode on June 4.
