Lee Jong Suk Talks About Being A Successful Fan Of Lee Na Young And His Upcoming Military Enlistment
During the event, Lee Jong Suk commented, “[I played] developing-type characters in my previous works. This character is closer to the complete style. If my previous projects had elements of fantasy, this drama is very realistic. However, the fact that such a character exists seems like a fantasy in itself for Kang Dan Yi [Lee Na Young’s character]. He’s an extremely charming character, to the point where I felt I wanted to be a little like him, so it’s also difficult.”
Lee Jong Suk then mentioned his upcoming military enlistment, stating, “I think I’ll end up enlisting this year. That’s why I have to finish this drama well. I wanted to show this to fans. It’s my first time trying the romantic comedy genre. I received a lot of help from Lee Na Young so I’m filming well.”
The actor then continued to talk about his co-star as one reporter asked him, “It’s been said that you were originally a fan of Lee Na Young.” In reply, he laughed sheepishly while saying, “I hoped that particular question wouldn’t be asked.”
He commented, “While shooting, everyone knew, but I didn’t want anyone to say anything.” Lee Jong Suk then said, “I think I’m a successful fan,” as Lee Na Young listened with a shy smile.
