“Man from the Stars” Kim Soo Hyun Shows Tireless Effort for His Roles

Kim Soo Hyun is truly an actor that works hard for any role that he plays.

The January 20 episode of SBS’s “Good Morning” analyzed the appeal and charm of Kim Soo Hyun, who plays the alien Do Min Joon in the popular drama, “Man From the Stars.” One of the actor’s charms was that he’s a very hard worker.

Kim Soo Hyun is originally left-handed. However, he learned how to use his right hand for acting, even surprising his senior, Choi Min Soo, while filming together.

The actor previously pulled off a dining scene pretty well with his rough right-handed ability. Eventually, with continued practice, he successfully and smoothly handled chopsticks and even wrote with his right hand in “Man From the Stars.” One would never be able to tell, at least not with close examination, that he’s not actually right-handed.

Moreover, in the film “Secretly, Greatly,” his killer abs were 100% his own, not enhanced with production technology in any way, and they were a result of his hard work and sweat for several months leading up to the movie. 

Also featured in this episode of “Good Morning” was Kim Soo Hyun’s student days, and the story behind the actor’s debut.
