Lee Jang Woo Talks About Upcoming KBS Drama, His New YouTube Channel, And More
The drama is about various people who gather at a house called Samkwang Villa run by a woman named Lee Soon Jung (Jeon In Hwa). It shows how people who start off as strangers begin to open up their hearts and love one another, and the show conveys the message that no matter how tough the world gets, the priceless warmth of love still exists in human relationships.
Lee Jang Woo plays Woo Jae Hee, an extremely detail-oriented architect, while Jin Ki Joo plays Lee Bit Chae Woon, a professional interior decorator with a strong sense of responsibility.
First, the actor shared why he decided to star in this drama. He explained, “I chose this project because I kept thinking about it after hearing the synopsis. My motto is to just portray comfortable characters, but this time I wanted to play a sharper character. The drama gives off a comfortable vibe, so everyone will be able to enjoy it.”
When asked why he continuously chooses to star in dramas that all ages can watch, he replied, “I’ve always pursued warm and friendly characters. It’s nice to look cool, but I like to depict characters who are more like the ‘boy next door.’ I know these roles may not be as popular, but I think they suit me better.”
Lee Jang Woo also talked about his new YouTube channel. He commented, “I wanted to show my own content clearly, and since social media is where people can express their individuality, I used mine to express all my thoughts. Actually, I’m interested in film production, so I want to try it someday. I want to make a pleasant movie, like something that fits with our country’s sentiment.”
Last but not least, he said, “I don’t like stereotypes, so I’m trying to jump over them. When I was young, I used to criticize people a lot and speak my opinions strongly, but now I have changed a lot. I accept other people’s opinions and hope that I’ll be able to work out something with them.”
“Homemade Love Story” will premiere on September 19 at 7:55 p.m. KST.
