Ahn Hyo Seop Talks About His Experience Working With Yang Se Jong And Shin Hye Sun On “30 But 17”
The actor sat down for an interview to mark the end of SBS’s Monday-Tuesday drama “30 but 17” and was asked about his co-stars. Ahn Hyo Seop said, “I’m quite shy, so I’m not very good at being the first to approach someone. Both of them approached me first to say hello.” He also added, “I had so much to learn from them. I was just learning new things nonstop.”
Ahn Hyo Seop then went on to talk about his work with Shin Hye Sun as he said, “She’s been such a nice person to me, like an older sister. I felt a sense of pressure at first, but I just kept working hard to create good scenes with her. I was always watching her acting and incorporating what she was doing into my own scenes. I asked her a lot of questions and we talked a lot throughout the drama.”
When talking about Yang Se Jong, Ahn Hyo Seop said, “He and I have similar personalities, which actually made it difficult for me to approach him at first. But because our characters in the drama are so close and really love and care for each other, we naturally became closer. We really care about each other, so much that we sometimes held hands on set. It was an expression of close friendship for us.”
He didn’t hold back on his praise for his co-stars as he continued with, “They’re really great at becoming one with their characters. Their ability to immediately focus their attention on their characters amazes me,” and “Sometimes when you’re filming a drama, you’ll feel tired or the circumstances aren’t in your favor. But they were always able to overcome things like that to focus on their characters, and that left a deep impression on me.”
“30 but 17” revolved around the story of a 17-year-old girl who fell into a coma and woke up when she was 30 and a man who had cut himself off from the rest of the world. The drama came to its conclusion on September 18.
