BTOB’s Yook Sungjae And Lee Jong Won Share Keywords To Describe Their Upcoming Fantasy Drama “The Golden Spoon”
The male leads of “The Golden Spoon” have picked key points to describe the drama!
Based on the webtoon of the same name, MBC’s “The Golden Spoon” is 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. Lee Jong Won plays Hwang Tae Yong, Lee Seung Chun’s privileged friend who lives the life he covets.
After growing up in completely opposite households, Lee Seung Chun and Hwang Tae Yong experience a body swap when the magical golden spoon switches their fates and there’s lots of anticipation to see how Yook Sungjae and Lee Jong Won will portray this transformation. With the drama’s premiere quickly approaching, here are the keywords chosen by Yook Sungjae and Lee Jong Won to describe “The Golden Spoon”!
Yook Sungjae chose “realistic imagination” and explained, “Even if it’s not [because of] money, , when life gets hard or tiring, I think anyone has thought about wanting to live as someone other than yourself for even a day. While [the plot] is a fantasy that can only come out in a drama, I believe anyone can realistically have this kind of imagination.”
Lee Jong Won expressed “The Golden Spoon” as “greed and ambition” before sharing, “I believe that excessive greed always leads to anger and within the drama, that idea is naturally melted in. If you think about this aspect while watching the drama, I think it’ll become a fun viewing point.”
Yook Sungjae also pointed out the cast’s brilliant chemistry and thanked his co-stars, saying, “As I was working with actors playing roles of people who confronted or helped my character Seung Chun, I think I was better able to bring out Seung Chun’s various tendencies.”
In turn, Lee Jong Won expressed his gratitude for Yook Sungjae as he shared, “Sungjae is the actor I’m working with the most. When i act out the image of Tae Yong transforming into Seung Chun, I talk a lot with Sungjae about how to express those scenes in detail. As he generously shares his thoughts on the character, he helps me act really comfortably.”
MBC’s “The Golden Spoon” premieres on September 23 at 9:50 p.m. KST and you can check out a teaser here!
