“Ghost Sweepers” Actor Lee Je Hoon Says Scenes with Kim Soo Ro Were Ad-lib Fest in “Elle”


Actor Lee Je Hoon was featured in the September issue of fashion magazine “Elle.”  The actor sat down for an interview and a photo shoot in romantic, rainy Jeju Island. 

The actor has been extremely busy this year with two movies and a drama out.  

Lee Je Hoon filmed two movies for 2012.  “Architecture 101” was released in March and also starred Uhm Tae Woong, Han Ga In, and miss A member Suzy.  His second movie “Ghost Sweepers” (also known as “The Fortune Tellers”) is to be released in October and also stars Kim Soo Ro and Kang Ye Won. Lee Je Hoon also starred in SBS spring drama “Fashion King” with Shin Se Kyung, Yoo Ah In, and Girls’ Generation member Kwon Yuri

The busy actor has two more movies which are scheduled to be released in 2013 and has been busy filming his scenes ahead of his late 2012 military enlistment.  “My Pavarotti” will come out in 2013 and features Han Suk Kyu and Kang So Ra (who recently finished her stint on “We Got Married” with Super Junior member Leeteuk).  “Ethics of Fury” will come out in 2013 and feature Moon So Ri, Jo Jin Woong, and Kwak Do Won.

On traveling and what he does in his free time, Lee Je Hoon: “My mind is always dreaming about traveling, but up to now my schedule has not allowed me to travel.  I have about one day or two days to rest, so I go to the theater or meet friends and acquaintances for tea.  My hope is that if I have more time, I can go for long walks.”

On being unguarded in his conversation, Lee Je Hoon: “Because when I meet people it’s such a precious time, I talk start conversations with people first and I express myself.  But, when it’s time to focus, I don’t talk a lot.  I cannot frequently change back and forth from laughing and talking to then suddenly getting back into the zone and start shooting again.” 

On how he got involved with new movie “Ghost Sweepers,” Lee Je Hoon: “The movie “Ghost Sweepers” was a movie produced by my entertainment company, and it was in pre-production process for about 2 years, but came to me naturally.  I thought the story was interesting.  The problem was that as it was my entertainment company’s work, I wanted to be careful.”

On working with Kim Soo Ro, Lee Je Hoon: “Almost all of the scenes I did with my acting senior Kim Soo Ro were an ad-lib fest.”
