Kim Min Jae Talks About His Resemblance To Yeo Jin Goo, 2nd Season Of “Dr. Romantic,” And More
“It was my first time taking on a lead role, as well as filming such a long sageuk [historical drama],” he said. “That’s why I think I learned a lot.”
He added, “The character Ma Hoon had to communicate with most of the major characters in ‘Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency.’ I think that just as Ma Hoon learned new things from everyone he met, I learned a lot from taking on my first leading role and communicating with my co-stars and crew members.”
Kim Min Jae was also asked about his resemblance to Yeo Jin Goo and his next acting project.
“I’ve heard that [I look like Yeo Jin Goo] so often now that I don’t really feel anything,” he said. “I just think, ‘Oh, I see.’ I went to the same school as Jin Goo. We’re very different people, but people around us always say we look alike. So I’m like, ‘I see,’ but I don’t actually think about it that much. This was true back when I debuted and it’s true now – I’ve lived a different life from Yeo Jin Goo and I’m sure I have different values and directions in life. I think that if I just live my life, one day I’ll become ‘just Kim Min Jae.'”
About the second season of “Dr. Romantic,” he said, “I really liked the vibe on the first season. I learned a lot and it was fun to be around the cast and crew. Season 2 is almost exactly the same. It’s like coming home after spending the day outside. I’m glad that I could return, and I’m filming in a happy mood.”
He added, “I have to manage my physical condition. It’s okay for now, but the second half has a lot of surgery and emergency scenes, so I have to start managing my condition now in order to conserve energy. I go to the gym, receive physical therapy, and eat well.”
Kim Min Jae picked Han Suk Kyu as his role model from the show and said, “I often thought that I wanted to become like him. His acting is amazing, of course, but his leadership qualities, his kindness, his respect, and his humor made him very cool in my eyes.”
