Shinhwa’s Eric Explains Why He Chose New Rom-Com As 1st Drama in 4 Years After “Another Oh Hae Young”
Shinhwa’s Eric spoke about his decision to star in “Yoo Byul Na! Chef Moon.”
This upcoming Channel A romantic comedy is about the love, growth, and success of reckless world-famous fashion designer Yoo Yoo Jin (played by Go Won Hee) who suffers from memory loss and meets star chef Moon Seung Mo (played by Eric).
Moon Seung Mo is the only son of a household that has owned an 80-year-old pork soup restaurant and he’s a star chef spreading Korean cuisine all over the world through pop-up restaurants. He’s a character with a warm heart despite his cold manner of speech and gestures.
“Unlike my previous dramas, I wanted to appear in a heartwarming project in the friendly landscape of the countryside,” said the actor. “When I read the script, I felt like this project had the ability to convey that charm.”
He added, “I felt even more confident because it’s a project that is being directed by Choi Do Hoon, who I worked with in previous projects.” Eric previously starred in the director’s 2006 SBS drama “Super Rookie Ranger.”
Describing his role as Moon Seung Mo, Eric stated, “He’s a character who’s professional and perfect when it comes to being a chef and also has a cold side. But he’s also surprisingly human and clumsy, so I’m discussing with many people including the director to portray a more dimensional character.”
“Yoo Byul Na! Chef Moon” premieres in March as the follow-up to “Touch.”
