The idol-turned-actor will be making his return to the small screen through the role of Ji Su Ho, an immensely popular A-list actor renowned for his superior acting skills and his squeaky clean personal life.
Yoon Doojoon remarked, “I thought it would be fun to live the life of a superstar, which I haven’t been able to experience in real life.”
He also shared that he was drawn to the role because of its honest portrayal of celebrity life. “Su Ho is a character that strongly depicts the ‘other side’ of celebrities,” he explained. “Although he has wealth and fame, he is a gloomy man who is completely empty inside.”
He continued, “The character of Ji Su Ho is a difficult but enjoyable challenge for me. In my acting, I’m trying to focus on Su Ho’s psychological state as he slowly evolves over the course of the drama by facing a variety of unexpected situations.”
In “Radio Romance,” Ji Su Ho ends up working as the DJ for a radio show, despite the fact that he has a hard time doing anything without a script. The drama follows his struggles amidst the exciting, action-packed daily workings of a radio station, where nothing ever goes according to plan.
Yoon Doojoon revealed that part of the reason “Radio Romance” had captured his attention was because he had always harbored a sentimental fantasy about radio. “I had a good feeling about the drama from just hearing the title,” he recalled.
The Highlight member went on to compare the drama to an actual radio show, saying, “‘Radio Romance’ is a drama in which each character has his or her own story. I think it’s a drama that can be best enjoyed by watching it as though you’re listening to and sympathizing with a caller’s story on a radio show.”
“I’m nervous and excited to be returning to the small screen after a long time,” confessed Yoon Doojoon. “Please give the show a lot of interest and love.”
“Radio Romance” will premiere on January 29 at 10 p.m. KST, after the end of “Jugglers.”
