During a media day at a music store in Mapo, Seoul on December 26, Siwan stated, “Kwanghee always says he’s jealous of me on TV, but he’s really just trying to be funny.”
“He has nothing to be jealous of,” Siwan continued. “Kwanghee and I both recognize that we are on different paths and have different goals, so there is no jealousy between us.” He also added, “we congratulate each other when we win at award shows, too. We don’t envy one another.”
Siwan appeared on the popular tvN drama “Misaeng,” which portrayed him as Jang Geu Rae, a failed professional baduk (go) player who is thrust into the real world and must find a job. The series ended successfully, pulling in 8.2 percent viewership after starting at 1.6 percent.
