Kim Min Jae, Park Gyu Young, And More Share Insight Into Their

KBS is bringing back a Wednesday-Thursday drama for the first time in three months!

On September 16, KBS 2TV’s upcoming drama “Dali and Cocky Prince” held an online press conference with main actors Kim Min Jae, Park Gyu Young, Kwon Yool, Hwang Hee, Yeonwoo, and director Lee Jung Sub.

“Dali and Cocky Prince” is a romantic comedy starring Kim Min Jae as Jin Mu Hak, a man who lacks schooling and book smarts, but is extremely resourceful and talented at making a living. Park Gyu Young stars as Kim Dal Li, a woman who is intellectually polished and comes from an elite background, but doesn’t know how to take care of herself.

Director Lee Jung Sub commented, “This is a story of whether ‘new money’ Jin Mu Hak, who lacks education, and the blue-blooded Kim Dal Li will protect or lose the art museum. Since art is the subject matter, we paid a lot of attention to the art. Within the drama, a large-scale exhibition is held around three times, and we thought that they had to be actual works of art to feel real, so the result was created by real-life artists working for two to three months. I believe that viewers will be able to enjoy it as if they were touring an art museum.”

While Kim Min Jae’s character Jin Mu Hak lacks formal education, he has no insecurities about this fact and instead takes pride in his extremely good sense for money and business. Park Gyu Young’s character Kim Dal Li is a person with deep knowledge in various fields who works as a researcher at an art museum in the Netherlands, but she struggles to take care of herself. Kwon Yool plays Dal Li’s first love Jang Tae Jin, and Hwang Hee will play Dal Li’s childhood friend Joo Won Tak. Yeon Woo plays Chak Hee, who meets Jin Mu Hak on a blind date and becomes close friends with him.

Regarding his chemistry with Park Gyu Young, Kim Min Jae shared, “This isn’t our first project together. We met for the first time in a while, but it felt comfortable. Thanks to that, I was able to focus well during this project. We filmed [the drama] while talking to each other a lot and being very considerate of one another. I really liked it.”

Park Gyu Young responded, “Although it’s not our first time meeting, it’s the first time we’ve worked together for this long. On set, Min Jae is very soft and flexible, but within that, he has incredible charisma and tenacity. He was very considerate, and I also learned a lot and got lots of help [from him], so I was able to film comfortably and enjoyably.”

Kwon Yool, who last played a realistic husband in “No, Thank You,” is now playing a chaebol heir. Regarding his role, he shared, “I tried to portray my emotions and actions with less restraint. My character is one that receives a bit more spotlight than [typical] second-generation chaebols. Inevitably, I think the appearance of the drama is what gives us synergy.”

Hwang Hee chimed in about his own character, “He’s someone who is blunt with everyone except Dal Li, but is also extremely charming. I think viewers will also really like him.”

Regarding Chak Hee, Yeonwoo shared, “She’s a character who is so overflowing with cuteness that you cannot hate her. Even though she is occasionally vain, air-headed, and unlikable, you don’t hate her. I hope people adore her lots.” She added, “In my last project, I played the role of an art student, so it was interesting to get the role of a gallerist in ‘Dali and Cocky Prince.'”

When asked about the drama’s key points, director Lee Jung Sub answered, “This time, I created this project with actors that I’m working with for the first time. Since they’re rising stars, I liked that we could create their colors together and that we could attempt various new things. It was an honor that ‘Dali and Cocky Prince’ could be part of their journey of growth.”

Kim Min Jae shared, “The three codes are ‘art, romantic, and comedy.’ Things have been hard these days, but I think you’ll be able to enjoy yourself while watching the drama, and I think the comedy genre will make you laugh. Please give [the drama] lots of love.”

“Dali and Cocky Prince” premieres on September 22 and will be available on Viki. Check out a teaser here!
