“Yawang“s (or “Queen of Ambition“) male lead Kwon Sang Woo, who plays the role of Haryu, recently expressed his frustration through his fan cafe by posting, “I think Haryu is going downhill.” In Korean, the word “haryu” also means, “the downstream” or “the lower classes.”
On March 13, Kwon Sang Woo posted on his fan cafe, “I think Haryu is really becoming ‘haryu’ these days. For me to act this part… mm. Stress on many levels. I just hope the script comes out well.”
It seems that Kwon Sang Woo is reacting to the public’s opinions on Haryu’s character in “Yawang” and the hardships of filming. Many netizens also seemed to think that Kwon Sang Woo was not pleased with his character portrayal.
Not too long after, Kwon Sang Woo’s agency Bel Actors Entertainment stated, “Kwon Sang Woo normally does not partake in SNS but he just wanted to communicate with his fans, which is why he left that post on the fan cafe,” and “He wrote that message because he is struggling a lot with the overnight filming and the last minute scripts.”
Meanwhile, “Yawang” recently ended its 18 episode and is running into the final stretch. In related news, DBSK‘s Yunho also shared his thoughts on his run with the drama as well.
