Lee Do Hyun Reveals How He Prepared For

In a recent interview and pictorial for 1st Look magazine, Lee Do Hyun dished on his latest drama and more!

The actor is currently starring in JTBC’s “18 Again” as Hong Dae Young, a 37-year-old man on the brink of divorce who suddenly finds himself back in his 18-year-old body.

When asked how he tackled the challenge of portraying a supernatural phenomenon that he has never personally experienced, Lee Do Hyun revealed that he had gone to great lengths to study the habits of his co-star Yoon Sang Hyun, who plays Hong Dae Young before he magically finds himself looking 18 again.

“I closely observed and studied Yoon Sang Hyun,” recalled Lee Do Hyun, explaining that he wanted to convey as convincingly as possible that they were the same person—albeit in two different bodies. “How he walked, even the shape of his hands when he held his cell phone… I tried hard not to miss these kinds of small details.”

Lee Do Hyun also shared what he considers his greatest strength as a rom-com star.

“No matter how cheesy my lines are, I can deliver them in a way that feels light and not too awkward,” said the actor. “I try my best to figure out ways to make viewers enjoy and accept those kinds of lines, so that even as they think, ‘Wow, that’s so cheesy, how can you say things like that,’ they also think, ‘I really like that.'”
