Lee Yoo Jin Shares How His New Drama “Three Bold Siblings” Changed His Thoughts On Family
“Three Bold Siblings” is a new romance drama starring Im Joo Hwan as Lee Sang Joon, an A-list actor who is the eldest son of his family. When he gets into an unexpected accident during filming, he is reunited with Kim Tae Joo (Lee Ha Na), his first love from elementary school, who is also the eldest of her siblings and grew up sacrificing everything for her family.
Kim So Eun will also star in the drama as Kim So Rim, the middle child of the Kim family and Kim Tae Joo’s younger sister, while Lee Yoo Jin will play their younger brother Kim Geon Woo.
Explaining why he had chosen the character of Kim Geon Woo for his next role, Lee Yoo Jin remarked, “Because I’m the only son in my household, I feel an especially strong sense of responsibility towards my family. Geon Woo is also the only son and the youngest of three siblings, so I found it appealing that we had similarities in terms of our family environment.”
The actor went on to describe his character by saying, “Although Geon Woo is a character who loves his family a lot and feels a strong sense of responsibility towards them, he also reflects on himself and discovers new sides of himself that even he hadn’t known before.”
“As he discovers new sides of himself, he faces new concerns and conflicts,” continued Lee Yoo Jin, “but he makes an effort to move forward towards a better version of himself.”
Finally, Lee Yoo Jin revealed that the experience of playing Kim Geon Woo had made him want to change the way he interacts with his own family in real life.
“I’m not the expressive type [with my emotions] in real life, so I don’t have as friendly or cute of a personality as Geon Woo does,” explained the actor. “Playing Geon Woo gave me the chance to think again about what it means to be a son, and it made me think that I should be more friendly and affectionate towards my family in the future, the way Geon Woo is.”
“Three Bold Siblings” will premiere on September 24 at 8 p.m. KST.
