Kim Seon Ho talked about his new role for tvN’s upcoming weekend drama “Start-Up”
“Start-Up” takes place in South Korea’s fictional Silicon Valley named Sandbox and is about people in the world of startup companies. Suzy stars as Seo Dal Mi, who dreams of becoming Korea’s Steve Jobs, and Nam Joo Hyuk stars as Nam Do San, the founder of Samsan Tech. Kim Seon Ho plays Han Ji Pyeong, a team leader at SH Venture Capital, and Kang Han Na plays Won In Jae, a CEO and second-generation chaebol.
Kim Seon Ho revealed his reason for choosing to star in the drama. He shared, “I was very drawn to the point that the drama will portray the beginning and challenges as well as the growth of young adults. Above all, I really liked the description of Han Ji Pyeong.” He added, “Furthermore, I was glad to be given the opportunity to work with director Oh Choong Hwan and scriptwriter Park Hye Ryun.”
The actor continued to share his process of preparing for the drama. He explained, “Although many startup businesses are near us in our lives, I studied properly about the field of startups through this project. I read books relating to the subject, looked up terminology on the internet, and watched related lectures in an effort to earn various information.”
When asked about Han Ji Pyeong’s unique skill, Kim Seon Ho replied, “I guess it must be that he’s a skilled investor who possesses great wealth. I’m referring to the ability he has and his sharp eye for investments.”
Kim Seon Ho continued to describe Han Ji Pyeong’s personality. He revealed, “He has not yet completely matured since he also had a difficult adolescence, so he may be imperfect on the inside.”
