Shin Sung Rok Has a KakaoTalk Doppelganger

Actor Shin Sung Rok made an appearance on KBS 2TV’s “Entertainment Weekly” for an interview on March 8.

He was asked if the real Shin Sung Rok shares any similarities with his villainous character Lee Jae Kyung from “Man from the Stars,” and surprised the interviewer with his answer.

The actor replied, “Yes. Not in the way that we think, but we have similar expressions. I think I have unconsciously made some of his facial expressions before. I’d be in big trouble if I had the same personality as him.”

Shin Sung Rok added, “When I get angry, my eyes resemble that of a comic character.” He demonstrated several expressions, drawing comparison to a popular KakaoTalk dog character.

Shin Sung Rok recently wrapped up filming for SBS drama “Man from the Stars,” and is currently rehearsing for a musical “Le Roi Soleil,” which opens in April.
