Wi Ha Joon Reveals His Dream

In a recent interview and pictorial for The Star magazine, Wi Ha Joon talked about Season 2 of his hit drama “Squid Game,” his ideal type, and more!

The actor, who will be gracing the cover of the magazine’s December issue, recently skyrocketed to global stardom following to his scene-stealing performance in “Squid Game.” Just this month, the rising star made People magazine’s list of the “25 sexiest men on TV”—despite the list focusing almost entirely on American TV.

Commenting on his surging popularity, Wi Ha Joon humbly remarked, “Even now, I still can’t believe that this kind of thing could happen to me. I had the amazing fortune of appearing in a great drama.”

Wi Ha Joon also went on to share his personal hopes for his character in the upcoming second season of “Squid Game.”

“Because my character had to explain things from an observer’s point of view, there were a lot of limits to the emotion [that he could portray],” said the actor. “If I were to imagine Hwang Joon Ho in Season 2, I’d want him to find his brother again and ask him what in the world happened [to him].”

When asked what he considered his greatest strengths as an actor, Wi Ha Joon pondered the question for a long time before finally answering, “The versatility and duality that comes from my physical appearance. And I think I’m pretty good at action scenes.”

As for his ideal type, Wi Ha Joon shared, “I like people who are wise. My dream partner is an admirable person who is strong enough to stand up to those who are strong and who is generous to those who are weak. I think that in order for us to grow and improve, I need to be able to learn a lot from them.”

Wi Ha Joon also opened up about a time in his acting career when he considered giving up altogether.

“There was a time when I kept failing auditions, and my self-confidence dropped to the point where I started wondering, ‘Should I not act?'” he recalled.

“But thanks to the people around me who encouraged me a lot, I gradually became more relaxed, and I now have faith in myself. Since I have a lot of things to show, I want to display even better acting from now on, and I think a lot about what I should do to be able to act for a long time.”

Finally, when asked about his personal goals, Wi Ha Joon revealed, “I want to hear people say, ‘You can always count on Wi Ha Joon’s acting. I want people to feel that I’m a warm person, and I also want to express my feelings and give a lot of love from now on.”
