Lee Jang Woo Talks About Working With Uee Again + Worrying About His Career While He Was In The Military
“My Only One” is about a woman whose life gets twisted after her dad appears for the first time in 28 years. Her father, who had to live while hiding his identity, meets a life partner and finds hope to live.
Lee Jang Woo appears as Wang Dae Ryuk, a second-generation chaebol and department head of a food company. He’ll fall in love with a woman named Kim Do Ran (played by Uee). The actor explained his character, saying, “He’s a chaebol who doesn’t abuse his powers. He’s a young man who works hard to make his company more successful.”
About working with Uee again, Lee Jang Woo commented, “When I heard that my co-star would be Uee, I was so happy. We were MCs for ‘Music Bank’ together for about a year. We know each other’s personality well, so we didn’t need any time to get close. We’re filming well.”
Lee Jang Woo entered the military in April 2016 and was discharged this January. He commented, “From the outside, it seems like a short amount of time. But when I was inside, it felt so long to the point that I wondered if I could act again.”
He continued, “Many things have changed on set and these days. They now film wirelessly. I was surprised that the microphones and monitors all work wirelessly.”
Jung Eun Woo added, “There was about a two-month difference between when Lee Jang Woo and I were discharged from the military. They say that good viewership ratings are guaranteed for weekend dramas, but in some way, I felt burdened that my comeback drama would be receiving lots of attention. I felt pressured about acting with many senior actors. While working together with young actors, I’m building confidence and becoming comfortable.”
“My Only One” will premiere on September 15 at 7:55 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki! In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
