K-Wave Star ‘Has No Plans to Wed’

Aug 18, 2006

Korean Wave star Kwon Sang-woo has told to a Japanese film magazine he does not plan to get married any time soon. Ahead of the Japanese release of his film "Youth Comic," the actor gave a promotional interview to Cinema Today magazine on his goals as he heads into his thirties. "It’s not that I want to put work before marriage, but there just aren’t any plans," he is quoted as saying. "I want to give better performances, and I am making better work." He confessed to feeling more comfortable now he is 30. "I have a responsibility as an actor, and I have a little more leeway," he said.

Kwon, who has previously admitted to dreams of appearing in a Japanese soap, named the actor Toru Nakamura, who has appeared in Korean movies, and Takeshi Kaneshiro as two stars he would like to work with. The interviewer swooned over Kwon’s smooth style. "Throughout the interview, he looked me straight in the eye and answered in a gentle and respectful voice, exuding the charm that has captured the hearts not just of Korean women but of Japanese women as well," Cinema Today gushed.
