During a photo shoot with allure, actor Kim Min Suk discussed his latest two acting roles and how they differ from each other.
Kim Min Suk received a lot of love for his role as Seo Jang Hoon in the recently-concluded JTBC drama “Age of Youth 2.” Three days after the drama ended, he greeted viewers for a second time with tvN’s “Because This Is My First Life” as Shim Won Suk, an innocent man who has been in a 7-year relationship with his current girlfriend.
When asked about his back-to-back activities, Kim Min Suk confessed, “To be honest, it was rough at times because filming for the dramas overlapped, and I was always worried about becoming a hassle with my scheduling conflicts.”
He continued to add, “Before I pick a role, I try to find similarities between myself and the character I’ll play. Reading the script [for ‘Because This Is My First Life’], I felt drawn to the character because it reminded me of my own long-term relationship. I think Shim Won Suk will be a completely different character from Seo Jang Hoon in ‘Age of Youth 2.'”
Expanding on his experience filming “Age of Youth 2,” Kim Min Suk said, “That drama was very meaningful to me in a lot of ways. I gained a lot of confidence through the drama because it felt like people were starting to recognize me for my ability to work with a partner and have chemistry together as a romantic pairing.”
Finally, when asked what’s changed since getting famous, the actor said, “I like that I’m able to treat my friends to meals or drinks. I think of the people around me as my most prized assets in life, and I like hanging out with my friends. Being able to spend the money I make for my friends makes me happy.”
