Seo In Guk played Lee Min Suk, who lives a double life by attending both high school and work. His easily excited personality compliments the awkward but calm Jung Soo Young , who is played by Lee Ha Na.
On the success of their on-screen relationship, director Yoo Jae Won stated, “Seo In Guk and Lee Ha Na shared many conversations, where they came up with a lot of useful ideas for the drama. The actors’ friendship was the key. Acting with a comfortable mind made it more realistic.”
Yoo Jae Won also complimented Seo In Guk, stating, “Before the filming, he studied his character diligently.” He continued, “He’s very intelligent, so he was able to understand and pull off what direction I wanted him to go.”
“Lee Ha Na knows that when she makes a fool of herself, the viewer’s response will be good.” Yoo Jae Won continued, “She is aware of her own charms. During filming, she fixes her make-up and hair according to the situation.”
“High School King” sadly made its finale on August 11, but don’t forget to watch the special, which airs August 12!
