ONE Shares His Fears About Relationships On “The Romance”
Kim Ji Suk and Yoo In Young, who have been friends for over a decade, disagreed on whether the drama should have a happy or sad ending. “I want it to be extreme,” Yoo In Young said. “The beginning can be beautiful and lovely, but the ending should be impactful.” She advocated for a sad ending with both the loss of love and friendship.
Kim Ji Suk said, “I was taken aback by how different our starting points were. I think that being realistic is the trend right now. I thought I knew her well, but I didn’t expect her to think so differently from me.”
Kang Han Na and ONE enjoyed the Jeju Island scenery together and talked about their script over dinner. Kang Han Na said, “Whenever we meet someone, we think, ‘What are they thinking?’ I think that that is where the story begins.” She added, “I think that the female lead should be bright and the male lead should be introverted.”
ONE said, “I find it easy to relate to male leads who can’t express their feelings.” He shared that because he was so bad at expressing himself, he ended up being coached by a friend. “I have a strange compulsion not to lie in the slightest,” he said. “You can say something if you’re 95 percent sure of the answer, but I couldn’t even do that. Because I couldn’t express myself, my friend told me to copy what he did. But I couldn’t do that either, so I got really frustrated. At some point, I became afraid to have deep relationships with people. I kept thinking to myself, ‘Am I still so immature? Is dating really that hard?'”
“The Romance” airs on Thursdays at 6:25 p.m. KST.
