“Your Honor” PD Talks About Being Impressed By Yoon Shi Yoon’s Stamina And “Tough Guy” Image
On July 25, the new SBS drama (directed by Boo Sung Chul and written by Chun Sung Il) held a press conference. The PD said honestly, “There are a lot of legal dramas these days, and even though the writer and I spent so much time preparing, we thought, ‘Should we do this? Should we cancel it?’ We thought about it for a long time.”
About the casting of lead actor Yoon Shi Yoon, the PD said, “Toughness is the most important part of Kang Ho’s character. It had to be a sweet kind of toughness that would appeal to female viewers. I thought that Yoon Shi Yoon would fit that role perfectly, and he’s doing very well.”
He added, “He’s from the marines so his stamina is very good. I was shocked every day [by how strong he was]. The law has changed now to ban all-night shoots, but in June we filmed a lot of scenes overnight. His stamina was so good. But I chose him because of his ability to come across as ‘sweet but tough.'”
Yoon Shi Yoon’s co-star, Hello Venus’s Nara, was also full of compliments. “I film most of my scenes with him, and there are a lot of affectionate scenes. I’m not very good at those scenes yet, but he takes the lead well and helps me during rehearsals.”
“Not just him, but seeing all the other seniors made me realize, ‘This is how they became great actors,'” she added.
“Your Honor” will premiere on July 25 at 10 p.m. KST. Check out the trailer on Viki below!
