Lee Jong Won Talks About Playing Object Of BTOB's Yook Sungjae's Envy In New Fantasy Drama

Lee Jong Won has shared his thoughts on his character in MBC’s upcoming drama “The Golden Spoon”!

Based on the webtoon of the same name, “The Golden Spoon” is a new drama about a student born into a poor family who uses a magical golden spoon to swap fates with a friend born into a wealthy family. BTOB‘s Yook Sungjae will be starring as Lee Seung Chun, the student who hopes to turn his life around with the titular golden spoon, while Lee Jong Won will play Hwang Tae Yong, the privileged friend whose life Lee Seung Chun covets.

“What I found the most appealing was the story of characters that go back and forth between silver-spoon privilege and poverty,” said Lee Jong Won. “I thought it would be fun to have to act as Hwang Tae Yong and Lee Seung Chun, who are very different characters from one another.”

He continued, “Since Hwang Tae Yong is incredibly wealthy, to the extent where he even has his own personal assistant, I think he’s someone whom anyone would envy.”

Lee Jong Won also spoke fondly of his character as he described Hwang Tae Yong’s hidden charms. 

“I think Hwang Tae Yong is a character who’s really charming on the inside,” he remarked. “Although he seems extremely cynical on the outside, he’s a character who’s actually searching for very small joys.”

“The Golden Spoon” will premiere on September 23 at 9:50 p.m. KST.
