▶ Choi Minsik and Park Yuchun
“Choi Minsik sunbaenim came to find me at 4 a.m. during the after party of <Haemoo>’s VIP premier even though he was really busy. He touched my cheek and said, ‘You’ve been through a lot.’ My father passed away early so, I never get to feel this kind of feeling. It was a fatherly feeling.”
▶ Called an idol? I’m a Hollywood kid!
“Actually, I don’t wear nice clothes (laughs). When I am not working, I wear t-shirt and training suit and my staffs complain. During my rest days I only watch movies throughout the week. I think during that time, I’ve watched 30 movies…There are no classification of genres though. I watch to see why major films are popular but at the same time, minor films have their own attractions too. Now when I invite my friends over to my house, they fail to show up. We almost got to watch a movie together (laughs).”
“After debut, I can feel the charm in the job which I’m doing now. When I was still in school, I could not understand why I had to attend school. So, I did not go to school often (laughs). I liked composition. My compositions are still piling up at home.”
▶ A bed scene from first movie, I don’t care
“In my first filming piece, <Sungkyunkwan Scandal>, my body weight dropped to 50 kg. I was so burdened that I could not eat well. I also received a lot of stress. However, I gained confidence in thinking that ‘I can also become an actor.’ Nevertheless when it came to <Miss Ripley> I became worried again. It was crucial. After some time had passed, when I was filming <Rooftop Prince> I seemed to begin feeling the fun and enjoyment.”
