Ahn Hyo Seop Talks About Friendships With “Dr. Romantic 2” Cast, SF9’s Rowoon, And Lee Jae Wook
Recently, Ahn Hyo Seop participated in a “tipsy interview” with Ilgan Sports where he talked about his friendships with other celebrities!
The interview began with Ahn Hyo Seop revealing that his tolerance for alcohol had increased. On a particular drinking habit, he shared, “I sleep on the floor rather than the bed. The floor is marble, so I have no idea why I sleep on the floor, but when I wake up, I’m on the floor.” When asked if he has a drinking buddy he often meets up with, Ahn Hyo Seop revealed, “I often meet up with SF9’s Rowoon to talk about acting. I also recently saw Lee Jae Wook frequently. We became close thanks to Rowoon.”
Last month, Ahn Hyo Seop received the Best New Actor award at the 56th Baeksang Arts Awards for his performance in “Dr. Romantic 2.” He revealed that many people at his agency, as well as Lee Jae Wook and the director of “Splash Splash Love,” all congratulated him on his award. He added, “Above all, I think my family was the happiest.”
Ahn Hyo Seop also revealed that he only knew Lee Jae Wook at the award show. He explained, “It was difficult to even just stay seated. I really felt the aura of the senior actors. After the ceremony ended, I went and greeted Hyun Bin and Son Ye Jin as well.” Ahn Hyo Seop added, “I was walking around the stage when Hyun Bin congratulated me first. At that point, I thought, ‘Am I a celebrity too?’ I was a fan of Hyun Bin since a young age, so it was an honor to take a group photo with him.”
The actor revealed he had been extremely nervous when receiving the award, especially since he felt the other nominees were also all great actors. He shared, “Even at that time, I didn’t think I received the award because I was good at acting. It was possible thanks to the director, scriptwriter, and senior actors. I think of it as an award received by ‘Dr. Romantic 2.'”
Ahn Hyo Seop expressed his gratitude for Han Suk Kyu and shared that “Dr. Romantic 2” was an eye-opening experience for him. He also revealed that the actors have a group chat where they frequently conversed. He elaborated, “We often meet at Lee Sung Kyung‘s house, Bora‘s house, or Kim Min Jae‘s house. We congratulate each other’s birthdays too. This is the first team I’ve continued to have such a deep friendship with.” He continued to add that the cast was also close to Yang Se Jong, who starred in “Dr. Romantic” and appeared as a special guest on “Dr. Romantic 2.” He said, “I met up with him before he enlisted. I think the members of ‘Dr. Romantic 2’ will visit him together.”
In addition to voice acting lessons and pilates lessons to help with his acting, Ahn Hyo Seop has been learning the guitar, reading books, and gaming in his free time. The actor also briefly mentioned the possibility of opening a personal YouTube channel to communicate with fans and showcasing his singing in the future.
