What made you decide to play a role in this drama?

I was a long time fan of writer Park Hye Ryun. I loved watching I Can Hear Your Voice and Pinnochio. It was the same with director Oh Choong Hwan. I enjoyed watching Doctors and Hotel Del Luna and wanted to work with him. After looking at the script, I realized the storyline was pretty and beautiful. After reading the book I thought how great it would be to work on this project and thankfully I was given the opportunity.

We know you put in a lot of effort into this drama. Give us your final thoughts about finishing the drama.

Some could say it was a long time while others could say it was a short time, but I was truly happy to be able to work on this drama together. It was nice that the crew I was with was able to laugh and have a good time until the end. The production crew and actors were all great people so I was able to happily finish the drama with no difficulty. I am sad that it’s over. I am very sad that I can’t meet Ji Pyeong anymore. It was an honor to live as Han Ji Pyeong.

How similar is Han Ji Pyeong in comparison to actor Kim Seon Ho?

Since I played the role of ‘Han Ji Pyeong’ I think it would be about 50%. Like Ji Pyeong, I can’t speak coldly to others and I don’t really have a nice house or car, but because I acted out this role I think about half of my real self is embedded in Han Ji Pyeong.

What are your future plans?

I will continue to greet fans through my appearance on ‘1 Night 2 Days’ as well as through the play ‘Ice’ which will premiere in January. Next year I want to approach fans as a comfortable actor. Above everything else, I want to become an actor that can continue to grow and show an upgraded image to fans.
