Since the first episode, “Scarlet Heart: Goryeo” has been surrounded by the controversy of idols acting. Both IU and EXO’s Baekhyun have been criticized on not fitting with the tone of historical dramas. As these criticisms surround “Scarlet Heart: Goryeo,” Seohyun is another idol actor who will be stepping into the drama.
During the press conference, Seohyun stated, “Because it’s my first time taking on a traditional drama, it makes me excited but also nervous. I really like traditional dramas, but they are much harder than modern dramas. There were lots of areas that I was concerned about, so I learned a lot from the director as well as the senior actors.”
Seohyun also shared her opinion on working with Nam Joo Hyuk, saying, “I thought we would look good together. Because Nam Joo Hyuk is so well-mannered, I was able to immerse myself into character.”
