Continuing, Kang Dong Won revealed the future he pictured by saying, “Unlike my parents, I haven’t thought in-depth about my future family, but when I think about it for a brief moment, I would like it if it was a really warm family. If a family is created, I think I would rely on them a lot. I’m the type that thinks work and family are the most important things.”
Next, the actor revealed that he was good at studying when he was a student.
Park Kyung Lim read a listener’s story, who revealed that he was Kang Dong Won’s classmate. In the story, the listener confirmed, “Kang Don Won was good-looking and was good at studying.”

Afterwards, DJ Park Kyung Lim talked about“Temptations of Wolves,” the movie that shot Kang Dong won to stardom.

Kang Dong Won revealed his thoughts about the film by saying, “When I think about it now, it would’ve been nice if I could have seen that scene in the theater, secretly. However, at that time, I thought to myself, ‘Don’t get caught up in it, it won’t last long. It’s only for a moment.”
Continuing, he said, “When I see a lot of people in a movie theater, rather than feeling good, I feel kind of empty. I wonder, from the people who already like me, how much more will they like me?”
Meanwhile, “My Brilliant Life” will be released on September 3. Kang Dong Won will be appearing with actress Song Hye Kyo, who plays his wife in the film.
