At a press conference for tvN’s “New Journey to the West 4,” PD (program director) Na Young Suk talked about the differences between Lee Seo Jin and Kang Ho Dong, who have both worked with the producer for a long time.
He said, “Lee Seo Jin is like a friend, which is why we often treat each other very informally. I’m comfortable with Kang Ho Dong now only because I’ve known him for a long time. He’s always been a big name celebrity since my younger days, so he feels like a senior. He taught me a lot about the broadcasting industry, and I’ve grown as a PD during the time we’ve worked together.”
The then jokingly said, “Simply put, I’m comfortable with Lee Seo Jin and not comfortable with Kang Ho Dong. Kang Ho Dong was a huge mountain to be climbed.”
