Lee Soo Hyuk Talks about His Career Ambitions in Pictorial for Elle
Lee Soo Hyuk will be featured in the March edition of Elle magazine through a pictorial and interview. He talks about his aspirations for his acting career and how his body is different from his modeling days.
While he began his career as a model. Lee Soo Hyuk is now acting in television and films. His body has changed significantly from his modeling days, as he has gained weight and has put on some muscle. Regarding this change, he shares, “Gaining weight can make me look more ordinary, and I think that will give me more opportunities to play a variety of roles.”
Lee Soo Hyuk is enjoying a growing presence as an actor and recently wrapped up his role as carpenter Kim Joon in tvN’s “Valid Love.” In “Valid Love,” he played a character who is in love with a married woman. It could have been a character who was easy to hate, but he was able to portray the character sympathetically.
He describes the hard-work he put into the character of Kim Joon. “Out of all my previous works, I had the most scenes in this project. As he was a character with deep emotions, I had to be focused so it was difficult at times.”
He says that he’s known what direction he wants to go in life but was never ambitious about the rate at which he was going. However, he is now becoming more ambitious. “I’ve developed a greed and even impatience now. As I experience good results, I have confidence in and enjoy my work. I want to keep doing it.”
