Kang Seung Yoon Talks About What He’s Learned From “Kairos,” Recording The OST, And More
In “Kairos,” Kang Seung Yoon played the role of Gun Wook, a close friend of Han Ae Ri (Lee Se Young) who played a key role in the solving of the “time-crossed” mystery.
“It feels like I became one with Gun Wook after spending half a year with him,” Kang Seung Yoon said. “I am really grateful to have learned so much working on a good set with good people, and I feel disappointed about having to leave. Personally speaking, I had so much fun filming every day that I can say that it was the best set I’d ever been on.”
Asked what he had learned from “Kairos,” he replied, “I think I developed the mindset of ‘let’s work hard to learn.’ I realized anew the importance of focusing on acting and immersing yourself in your character, but also the importance of improving with each project and working hard and learning from whatever you’re working on. On set, the director and senior actors gave me a lot of detailed advice. I tried to incorporate what they said instead of letting it flow past me. There will always be regrets, but I am grateful that people have recognized that I’ve grown.”
Kang Seung Yoon also recorded an OST (original soundtrack) for “Kairos,” titled “Can You Hear Me.” He said, “I was fortunate to receive a request from the producers. When I was recording the song, it felt like it was a recreation of the story in ‘Kairos.’ Like the song title, ‘Can You Hear Me,’ the drama is about the importance of two people connecting through words even if it’s just for a minute. I sang the song thinking about how I could bring that meaning to life. I also wanted to make my voice sound appropriate for the drama. I’m grateful that the viewers seemed to relate to the song and gave it a good reception.”
Kang Seung Yoon concluded with a message of thanks to the viewers and said, “At first, the viewers had a harsh reaction to Gun Wook betraying Ae Ri at the beginning of the drama, but that soon turned into support. I’m grateful because it meant that the viewers were immersed in the drama and reacting honestly to what they saw. When I see reactions like that, it made me think, ‘I did well.'”
