The actor revealed that he had not expected to feature beyond the second episode, but that he was thankful for the additional scenes, calling it the “best opportunity.”
Yet despite having relatively few appearances in the drama, each of his scenes was full of impact, especially the confrontation in the first episode where the young king stands unfaltering before the charismatic, approaching Kim Shin (Gong Yoo).
Kim Min Jae said, “Senior Gong Yoo is a person that has it all. From sexiness, height, face, and charisma to kindness, he has it all. He’s a person that I admire and like very much, but during filming, I strove to see him as the character rather than a senior. Since I’m the king, I thought that if I am overpowered, I wouldn’t be a king [anymore]. With the thought that I cannot lose in that scene for the production [to turn out well], I did a lot of mental control, and focused on my character.”
