“I’m in the midst of transitioning out of my Lee Kangto character.” He stated in the interview. “To prepare for my next work everything I do, from crying as I watch a movie by myself or talking to my friends, is part of the process of me moving on from being Lee Kangto.”
For the interview Joo Won was dressed in a simple tracksuit that is not usually seen on celebrities. “I’m not someone who cares so much about style. I feel like my head will burst when I have to think too much about fashion,” he confessed truthfully to the fashion magazine.
While he may have been comfortably dressed for the interview, Joo Won was all class and style for the supplementary photo shoot. He exuded charisma and looked nothing less than a model as he wore contrasting black and white suits.
A staff member from the magazine praised Joo Won for his modeling. “Joo Won comes off differently on entertainment programs like ‘Happy Together’ or ‘1 night 2 days’ compared to his character in ‘Bridal Mask’ but through the photo shoot we were able to see the real Joo Won. Although we dressed him up in suits instead of comfortable clothes like jeans for the photo shoot, Joo Won displayed a variety of poses like a professional model.”
