Check out our full interview below:

1. Before choosing a project, what do you usually consider?

For me, the most important thing to consider is how I feel when I read the script. When I read the script and find something that’s unique, I am drawn to it. An actor isn’t everything in a drama or a movie. Good actors, a good director, and good staff are all also important.

2. As an actor and drama/movie viewer, what do you think is more important: a good story or good acting/directing? Why?

Both as an actor and an audience, I like a good story that grabs your attention from the beginning to the end. For that reason, I think it is important that everyone can enjoy and share a story together.

3. Your last drama was “Oh My Venus” in 2015. What genre do you want to try for your next drama project and why?

I hope to experience various aspects of life through acting. If I could discover different sides of myself, I would like to try any genre including romantic comedy and action.

4. The ending of “What Happened in Bali” left a lot of people surprised when it first aired! If you could re-write the story yourself, would you end it the same way or would you write something different?

I agree that a sad ending is suitable to Kang In Wook’s character.

5. You’ve played a lot of characters before but which character did you find the most difficult and why?

Since my latest character is Choi Chil Seong in “Battleship Island,” it comes to ming as the most memorable and the most difficult.
