Joo Sang Wook Comments On Working With Lee Min Jung Again In “Fates And Furies”
Joo Sang Wook shared his thoughts on working with Lee Min Jung again.
On November 30, a press conference was held for SBS’s newest drama “Fates and Furies” with actors Joo Sang Wook, Lee Min Jung, So Yi Hyun, Lee Ki Woo, Yoon Hak, and Park Soo Ah in attendance.
“Fates and Furies” tells a story about four people whose lives are intertwined, and their love and anger. In the drama, Joo Sang Wook appears as Tae In Joon, the CEO of a large company who falls in love with Goo Hae Ra (played by Lee Min Jung).
Speaking about his character, Joo Sang Wook said, “He’s a second-generation chaebol, but he doesn’t really have anything. He’s someone who’s trying to find his place while seeking revenge, and finds fateful love after meeting Goo Hae Ra.”
He continued, “I liked the overall color of the drama, atmosphere, and the emotions that the character Tae In Joon had. I focus on how much of the character I can express, and the role of Tae In Joon was really interesting in this aspect.”
In this drama, Joo Sang Wook and Lee Min Jung reunited as co-stars four years after appearing in “Cunning Single Lady” together. “We met again after becoming a married man and woman,” he said. “Since time passed and we became more mature, I think our acting has more depth and became more mature as well. The genre is completely different, so I think the acting will be very different as well.”
About his wife and actress Cha Ye Ryun, he said, “Before I go to work, she always puts honey water, burdock tea, and various snacks in my bag. She always takes care of me every time I go to film and helps me that way.”
“Fates and Furies” will premiere on December 1. In the meantime, check out the teaser with English subtitles below:
