Joo Won Reveals His Passion for Acting and His Ideal Type for “InStyle”


Actor Joo Won recently participated in a shoot for an “InStyle” magazine pictorial. Even though the weather was cloudy and drizzling, Joo Won managed to bring out his cool and refreshing charms for the camera while surrounded by greenery. 

In an interview that took place after the photo shoot, he said, “Since acting is my calling, I can’t imagine myself doing anything else. I even told people before, ‘If I hadn’t chosen acting, then I wonder if I would have been bumming around.’ Back then, when I was standing at a crossroads trying to decide if I wanted to pursue acting or not- I can’t tell you right now how glad I am that I chose the path of an actor.” 

When asked about his thoughts on fellow rising and “hot” actors Kim Soo Hyun, Kim Woo Bin and Lee Jong Suk, he said, “It’s stimulating and also feels burdensome.” He also went on to detail his own strengths that might set him apart from other male actors in their twenties. “Since I don’t have a particular image, I can try different characters and not be limited to specific ones.” 

Joo Won also talked about his ideal type saying, “In the past, I used to think if you loved somebody that was everything. But now instead of a fiery and passionate love, I think I prefer someone who is comfortable. I want to meet a wise woman who treats her parents well and listens carefully to what elders have to say.”
