At a press conference for MBC’s upcoming drama “Ruler: Master of the Mask” on May 8, INFINITE’s L revealed his thoughts on acting in his first historical drama and his ambitions in acting.
He expressed, “Because this was my first historical drama, I watched a lot of [historical] movies and dramas. I will be taking on both the child and adult versions of my character, so I practiced showing the differences in tone, behavior, way of speaking, and going from a peasant to a king. I hope you will watch over me as I grow.”
He then added that although it’s difficult to act while promoting as a singer, he will show that he is capable of it. He stated, “Acting in this drama calls for many changes, so please forget about INFINITE’s L while watching it. I will show everyone a new side to myself as actor Kim Myung Soo.”
“Ruler: Master of the Mask” tells the story of a crown prince who righteously fights against a wealthy and powerful organization that monopolizes Joseon’s water supply. Starring actors include INFINITE’s L, as well as Yoo Seung Ho, Kim So Hyun, and Yoon So Hee.
The drama will premiere on May 10 at 10 p.m. KST. Watch the recently revealed preview while you wait!
