[INTERVIEW] Protect the Boss Lee Heewon. “Mr. Jaejoong’s Fans Actually Gave Me Support.”
On October 31 the actress Lee Heewon paid a visit to the main building of Max Movie. She appeared as the elite secretary who assists Kim Jaejoong in the SBS drama Protect the Boss that recently finished in the midst of popularity. When questioned whether she worried about the eyes of the fans while collaborating with a popular idol member, she was relaxed: “On the contrary, I even received presents asking that I protect him well. My role was to assist him and so I was not worried.”
Q: You took the role of Kim Jaejoong’s secretary in the drama. I am curious as to the ease of that collaboration.
Because it was a role that did not have much movements but rather one that assisted, tailing him and bringing him paperwork, when we filmed the atmosphere was one that was extremely serious. My personality is actually very mischievous and so I wanted to laugh and to play pranks but I could not. (laugh) I think we had an easy time collaborating.
Q: Was there any aspects that were difficult in acting with an actor with singer origins rather than a full-time actor?
Actually I think I had more worries like that in my previous project, Playful Kiss. I played a person who had feelings for Kim Hyunjoong. I thought about whether the fans would not take kindly or whether they would become jealous. However, back then I was supposed to like him, but this time I was supposed to support him and so to be frank I did not have any fears. While doing this work, I even received letters from the fans of Mr. Kim Jaejoong. It said “please protect Kim Jaejoong with all of your effort” and it had cosmetics for the body. (laugh) It was good that I was to support him. Read More →
