Lee Yoo Joon Talks About Working With Park Seo Joon And Hwang Bo Ra In “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim”
The actor appeared in the drama as Jung Chi In, the department head affiliated with the vice president of Yoo Myung Company. He tried to know of all the information circulating through the company and butted in the affairs of not only Lee Young Joon and Kim Mi So, but all the workers in the vice president’s secretariat.
Lee Yoo Joon first discussed working with his cast members. When asked if there were any actors that remained in his memories, he replied, “They were all great. Hwang Bo Ra in particular was like a vitamin. I think I learned [from them] more than anything. To be honest, everyone except for me seemed to already know one another. I wondered a lot about how to act with the other actors when it was awkward. Right then, I saw Bo Ra throwing herself out there without any reservation. I felt then that it wasn’t about acting well, it was about acting while having fun. After that, I started filming while having fun as well. I was shocked and amazed by Bo Ra.”
Next, he was asked about Park Seo Joon’s acting as the vice president, and what he was like in real life. Lee Yoo Joon replied, “The character of Young Joon was really unique. There were some cringy lines in the drama like, ‘Young Joon, you bastard,’ or ‘Aura.’ He probably felt that it was cringy as well, but he took it in well as if those were his lines. It was amazing. I watched ‘Midnight Runners,’ which he stars in, but he seemed different from back then. I was really surprised. His appearance and personality were great as well. He worked extremely hard and put in a lot of effort on set. I’m thankful towards Seo Joon of course, but I’m truly grateful towards his fans. They sent us a coffee truck where we could drink ice-cold coffee in the sweltering heat.”
Finally, he was asked about Park Seo Joon and Park Min Young’s dating rumors that followed the finale of “What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim.” After being asked if he heard anything on set, or if he felt anything as part of the secretariat, Lee Yoo Joon responded, “I also learned of [the rumors] from the news. I didn’t even hear about it on set. It was to the point where I wondered, ‘Am I the only one who didn’t know?’ After the news broke, we didn’t say anything in our [the actors’] group chat. I’m not very knowledgeable about dating rumors within the entertainment industry, nor am I interested.”
