Super Junior’s Choi Siwon, Kim Min Jung, Lee Yoo Young, And More Describe Their Roles In “My Fellow Citizens”
The cast of KBS 2TV’s “My Fellow Citizens” shared their thoughts on their drama.
“This is a nerve-racking and meaningful day,” began Choi Siwon, who’ll be portraying a veteran conman named Yang Jung Gook who’s never been caught by the police. “I’ll be portraying a conman. I’m not the only conman [in my family]; I’m the only son in a household of three generations of conmen. With a police officer wife, he goes through many ups and downs and faces his life’s biggest crisis. It’s a project that has the actors and staff’s devotion, love, and effort, so I ask for lots of your love.”
Lee Yoo Young will play a police officer named Kim Mi Young who finds herself unknowingly married to a conman. “Kim Mi Young is a police officer and was once a troublemaker,” explained the actress. “Thinking that police officers looked cool, she wanted to become that kind of police officer and became a homicide detective. She even became a team leader at a young age. She loves her job the most, is always full of energy, and is a straightforward and confident woman.”
Kim Min Jung will appear as Park Hoo Ja, who’s the fourth daughter of a legend in the moneylending industry. She said, “I was just drawn to Park Hoo Ja. I think characters are the most important when choosing a project. I would feel burdened if I received an offer for this kind of role if I was in my 40s. I thought that it might widen the spectrum of our country’s female characters. It’s a refreshing drama, and it may seem like Hoo Ja is a heavy character since she’s a private moneylender, but she’s not. I didn’t want to express it that way, so I discussed it with the PD and writer.”
Tae In Ho will portray a rookie politician named Han Sang Jin. “I didn’t think I should imagine the average politician,” explained the actor. “I saw [the character] as someone that’s different from a politician. He’s someone who’s average but wants to practice politics. I was curious about Han Sang Jin as a person and thought that it would be fun [to play the role]. I wanted to try playing a normal character. Instead of imagining the appearance of a member of the National Assembly or a politician, I’m trying to portray a rookie politician who’s an average person who wants to be in politics.”
Kim Ui Sung concluded, “There is no connection between my role and my political preference. I think it’s important to tell a fun story. I think that it’ll be fun to tell a story that starts from the fun imagination about what would happen if a conman was to run for a seat in the National Assembly.”
“My Fellow Citizens” premiered on April 1 at 10 p.m. KST. Check out the latest episode of “My Fellow Citizens” below!
