SF9’s Rowoon Talks About Why He Was Drawn To His Character In Upcoming Romance Drama “She Would Never Know”
An adaptation of a popular web novel, “She Would Never Know” will tell the complicated office love story of two co-workers on a marketing team for a cosmetics brand. Won Jin Ah will star as perfectionist Yoon Song Ah, while Rowoon will play her dashing younger colleague Chae Hyun Seung, who has been with the company for a year. Although Yoon Song Ah is initially unable to see Chae Hyun Seung as anything other than a younger colleague, Chae Hyun Seung only has eyes for her.
Describing his character, Rowoon remarked, “If I had to sum him up in one phrase, Chae Hyun Seung is someone who is ready to love and also ready to be loved.”
The idol-turned-actor’s fondness for the character shone through as he went on, “Rather than being calculating and thinking, ‘I want to look like this in other people’s eyes,’ Hyun Seung’s altruistic behavior comes from being genuinely, innately considerate. He has a strong sense of responsibility about the work he takes on, and he also has the courage to confidently stick to his beliefs.”
Explaining why he had chosen the role for his next project, Rowoon shared, “I really wanted to play the character of Chae Hyun Seung. I wanted to worry over how to fill up a character who has no shortcomings, and I also wanted to play that kind of character, which is why I ended up choosing this project.”
“She Would Never Know” will premiere on January 18 at 9 p.m. KST, following the conclusion of JTBC’s “Live On.”
