It’s Time For Rest[Oct-2007]
Aricle sr:baidure-posted@yoohouse by SantaLFBefore I wrote this article, I had a look again at a copy of last year’s Esquire December 2006 issue, which was really quite well written. Just about one year after, “Esquire” wanted to have another article about an interview with Gong Yoo, but not the kind where we sit down together with a tape recorder, but to go to Jeju Island with GY for a short trip together, and write my feelings about the experience, now I have been sitting in front of my computer staring blankly for a long time, because all the words that come to mind are the words which seem to be the words which were already used in last year’s article, and retrieving a copy of last year’s article in my computer confirmed that the words are the same, my impressions of GY this time are exactly the same as they were last year.Transcripción y traducción hecha por: jenniusagi para i love yoo fan club.

Articulo sobre Gong Yoo en la revista Esquire

Tiempo para descansar.

Esto es una transcripción de lo que el artículo dice.

Antes de escribir este artículo, eché de nuevo un vistazo a la copia del fin de año del 2006 de la revista Esquire, el cual estaba bastante bien escrito. Cerca de un año después, “Esquire” quería tener otro artículo sobre una entrevista con Gong Yoo, pero no del tipo donde nos sentamos con una grabadora, sino ir a la isla Jeju con GY en un viaje corto juntos, y escribir mis sentimientos sobre la experiencia, ahora he estado sentada frente a mi computadora mirando inexpresivamente durante mucho tiempo, porque todas las palabras que vienen a mi mente son las palabras parecen ser aquellas que ya utilicé en el artículo del año pasado, y la copia que tengo de ese artículo en la computadora confirmó que las palabras son las mismas, mis impresiones de GY esta vez son exactamente las mismas que las del año pasado.

El hombre cambia con el tiempo, nadie está exento de ello, y sólo el grado en que se da el cambio es distinto. ¿Entonces en el trascurrir de un año, este hombre llamado GY no ha cambiado en lo absoluto? De su experiencia como actor, el GY de un año atrás es completamente diferente del GY de ahora. Por supuesto, fue durante este año que el personaje de Choi Han Kyul en el drama de moda “The No.1 Shop of the Coffee Prince” lo convirtió por completo en una verdadera estrella.

Tomando prestadas las palabras que utilicé la última vez, Seo Gun en “One Fine Day” es similar a GY en imagen, pero en CP, hay una sensación de principio fin de que “el rol fue escrito exactamente para GY ¿no es así?” como estuve observando al verdadero GY sé sobre el movimiento en la pantalla de tv. Basado en las circunstancias actuales, Choi Han Kyul es la imagen de lo que todas las mujeres en Corea quieren en un hombre, físicamente apuesto y divertido, adinerado y capaz, el parece ser un poco frío, pero de hecho muy en lo profundo nadie puede ser mas atento, moral, parece que CHK es incluso más como el verdadero GY [de lo que Seo Gun podría ser].

En realidad, en este viaje a la isla de Jeju para hacer la sesión fotográfica, el primer objetivo es trabajar, el segundo es, dado que nosotros hemos estado ocupados todo el año, estaba esperando tener esta oportunidad para ponernos al día. Yo estaba realmente ansiando este viaje a la isla Jeju, pero a causa del aniversario de la revista, acabo de completar 13 días de trabajo sin parar viajando entre Asia y América, estaba extremadamente cansada y somnolienta. GY ya se encontraba en su período de descanso y el equipo de fotógrafos le pidió que se quedara en la isla Jeju por algunos días, pensé que esperaría hasta que el volviera a Seúl ya que hubiera sido mejor llamarlo y entonces interrogarle para confirmar las cosas que quería hablar por teléfono, así podía ponerme al corriente y poder dormir un poco con la fresca brisa del mar en la Isla de Jeju, beber vino y hablar con él y decirle que ya lo estoy lamentando, “la vida se vive en medio de lamentos, una viva vivida sin errores no tiene ningún valor ni significado” [Esto se refiere a la cita de GY en el artículo del 2006 con la cual el explica su concepto de la vida] .

El es como mi buen amigo, no alguien a quien solo llamas cuando pasa algo urgente, sino que intenta ver desde mi punto de vista; el me preguntó primero cuál era la estructura de nuestra entrevista, usando su magnética voz baja (ya se a cual se refiere jijijiji) como un amigo para recordar a sí mismo de la hora acordada para nuestra cita. Cuando el tiempo de hablar llegó, el no mostró ningún cansancio del viaje, y yo directamente le pregunté “A través de “Esquire” di a todos lo que quieres hacer”. ” ¿Quieres aumentar mi carga? después de 40 minutos de charla desde que comenzamos, en realidad, el era el único que hablaba, todo lo que yo decía era “si”, “es así” expresando que estaba de acuerdo con él, incapaz de decir otras palabras durante la entrevista. Este hombre pronto a cumplir los 30, está sorprendentemente teniendo algunos problemas en su vida, un actor profesional de repente se vuelve un actor popular, mientras menos pueda lidiar con este proceso, más difícil será. El comienzo de este año fue el mas difícil período de su vida, uno de los problemas mas grandes para él era el de ser incapaz de sentir ninguna felicidad al actuar, y el miedo comenzó a crecer en él, la incertidumbre de que la actuación sería meramente una la forma de ganarse la vida. El comienzo de su carrera en la actuación fue cuando tenía 20 años, y luego el sintió que al principio era muy joven así que el tomó las cosas de manera simple, pero al igual que lo que la mayoría de la gente después de ver CP llegó a la conclusión de que el 2% que faltó fue confirmación de su innata urgencia[la verdad no sé bien a que se refiere, pero creo que habla algo de que para el basta con que falte un 2% para que las cosas sean consideradas como fallidas], la cual se manifestó en miedo, así que nadie podría haber estado mas feliz con el éxito de CP e incluso el me dijo: “Me gustaría agradecer a todos aquellos que me dijeron estas palabras -”Nunca olvides tus sueños, vuelve a ser el GY apasionado una vez más y crece con el reto de tu próximo trabajo”. Hablando sobre toda la gente que trabajó en CP a quienes ahora no ve regularmente, siente soledad, si dices que su preocupación en trabajos previos era la de satisfacer sus propias expectativas individuales, esta vez fue capaz de comprender durante el proceso de filmación, como influyes en la gente con la que trabajas, en el director y en el equipo de producción, trabajar juntos al unísono es lo más importante, por lo cual el está muy agradecido. Por supuesto, sería difícil estar satisfecho si este estándar es también utilizado para elegir su próximo trabajo. El parece que quisiera tomar un bolígrafo y escribir en un papel: “No voy a dejar que mi pasión disminuya…” y un hombre capaz de escribir estas palabras es de hecho un hombre que tiene pasión. Como actor, pronto tendrá 30 años, su pasión por el trabajo no se escabulle, esto es lo que más me emociona de él, porque, por un lado, su pasión es algo realmente me impresiona, pero por otro, preocupa que no pueda ser extinguida repentinamente, para mantener la energía que necesita ser constantemente recargada. Otras cosas no son importantes, lo que importa es que uno haga lo que lo haga sentir feliz, la persona que él es aquella capaz de soportar todos los tipos de dolor, la calidad es el elemento necesario que una estrella de esta generación debe tener. No estoy segura de quien le dijo que tu solo necesitas que falte un 2%, no importa si en el pasado o hace un año o ahora, nada falta, el es realmente un arquetipo de lo mejor de la juventud en Corea. Si bien puede haber un cierto grado de duda acerca de él para algunos, yo creo firmemente es esto.

Man changes as time changes, nobody is an exception, and only the degree of change may be different. Is it then that in one year’s time, this man called Gong Yoo did not change at all? From his experience as an actor, the Gong Yoo from one year ago is completely different from the Gong Yoo now. Of course, it was during this year that the character of Choi Han Kyeul in the 2007 Korean trendy TV drama – “The No.1 Shop of the Coffee Prince” completely made him into a real star.

Borrowing from words I used last time, Seo Gun in “One Fine Day” is similar to Gong Yoo’s image, but in CP, there is a feeling from beginning to end that “the role was written for Gong Yoo, isn’t it ?” like I was watching the real Gong Yoo I know moving about in the TV screen. Based on the current circumstances, Choi Han Kyeul is the image of what all the ladies in Korea would like their men to be, physically handsome and cool, wealthy and capable, he may seem a bit cold, but actually deep inside nobody can be more thoughtful, morally upright, it looks like Choi Han Kyeul is even more like Gong Yoo himself [than Seo Gun was].

Actually, for this trip to Jeju Island to do the photo-shoot, the first objective is to work, the second objective is, given that we have been busy the whole year, I was hoping to take this as an opportunity for us to catch up with one another. I was really looking forward to this trip to Jeju Island, but because of the anniversary issue of the magazine, I just completed 13 days non-stop work going around Asia and America, I was extremely tired and sleep deprived. Gong Yoo was already on his rest period and asked by the photography team to stay in Jeju Island for a few days, I thought I will wait until he flies back to Seoul as it would be better to call him then and ask him questions to confirm the things I want to talk about by telephone, so that I can catch up with some sleep with the cool sea breeze on the Jeju Island seaside, drinking wine on the one hand and chatting with him on the other hand telling him I’m already regretting , “Life is lived in the midst of regrets, a life lived without mistakes is meaningless.”(This refers to GY’s quoting this line in the 2006 article to explain GY’s approach to life.)

He is like my good friend, not someone who only calls when there’s something urgent, but tries to see things from my viewpoint; he first asks me what my arrangement for our interview is, using his magnetic low voice like a friend to remind himself of the agreed time for our appointment. When the time to talk has come, he did not show any tiredness from his trip,I directly asked him “Through “Esquire” tell everyone what you want to do.” “Do you want to increase my burden?” after 40 minutes of talking since we started, actually, he was the only one talking, all I said was “Yes” , “It’s like that” expressing my agreement with him, unable to get any other words in during the interview. This soon to be 30, 29 year old man, is surprisingly having trouble with life , a professional actor suddenly becoming a popular actor, the more he could not come to terms with this process, the more difficult it will be. The beginning of this year was the most troubled period in his life, one of the biggest problems for him was that he was unable to feel any joy in acting, and a fear started to grow in him that acting will merely become a means to earn a living, he began acting when he was 20, and later he felt that at the beginning he was too young so he approached things too simply, but like what most people concluded after CP ended, the 2% lacking was borne out of his innate urgency which manifested into a fear, so that nobody could have been happier with the success of CP

[NB: see Side Note below], and he even told me : I would like to thank all those who told me these words – “Do not give up your dreams, become the passionate Gong Yoo once again and rise to the challenge of your next work”. Talking about all the people who worked with him in CP whom he now cannot see regularly, he feels a sense of loneliness, if you say that his concern in his previous works was to meet his own individual expectations, this time he was able to comprehend during the filming process that how you influence the people you work with, the director and the production team, to work together in unison is what is most important, for this he is very thankful. Of course, it would be difficult to be satisfied if this standard is also used to choose his next work. He looks like he wants to pick up a pen and write on a piece of paper

“I will not let my passion wane …”

and a man able to write those words is indeed a man who has passion. As an actor, soon to become 30, his passion for his work is not lacking, this is what moves me the deepest about him, because his passion is something I am genuinely in awe of on the one hand, but on the other hand, concerned that it must not suddenly be extinguished, to maintain the energy there needs to be constant recharging. Other things don’t matter, what matters is that one is doing what makes one happy, the person that he is that is able to take all kinds of pain, this quality is a necessary element that a star of this generation must have. I’m not sure who told him that you only need 2% lacking, no matter whether in the past or one year ago or now, there is nothing lacking, he is truly an epitome of the best of Korea’s youth. While there may be a degree of doubt about this for some, I firmly believe in this.

[Side Notes: Not sure if something may have been missed in the translation from the original as this 2% seems to come out of nowhere so not sure of the context it is being used. But I presume one interpretation is that he may have set high standards for himself so he only needs to lack 2% to consider it to be a failure, as artists like him are prone to perfection.]

(2007) Entrevista con Cine21
 
¡¡¡Anngyong!!!Les taigo una entrevista que encontré por el internet; Yoo la hizo para Cine21 justo una semana después de haber terminado Coffee Prince. Ahí nos habla de su punto de vista al termino del drama y de como le llegó la popularidad.
Q= ¿Cuándo te sentiste popular?
GY= No nos dimos de lo que sucedía afuera, pues todos estábamos concentrados en nuestra actuación. A pesar de que escuchábamos a la gente decir: “Se están haciendo la gran sensación, chicos”. No intentamos créenosla o dejamos de escuchar, la directora hizo lo mismo, hasta que la serie llego al final pudimos verlo, una gran cantidad de gente estaba alrededor de HongDae, donde el café se encuentra. Su reacción fue muy grande.Tuvimos que usar nuestro carro para entrar al café ya que no podíamos caminar por la muchedumbre.  Ahí fue cuando me di cuenta de que el drama tenía mucha popularidad.
Q= Regresando a Gong Yoo después de HanKyul…
GY= Experimente dificultades cuando termino el drama. Era “Hello My Teacher” un inesperado vacío que llego, era la primera vez que tenía ese tipo de sentimiento. Fue algo fuerte y no sabía que hacer, pero ahora que he hecho un par de dramas más y posiblemente por que he madurado y he tenido más experiencias que no sufro como antes lo hacía. Ahora que ha pasado solo una semana desde que termino Coffee Prince, me siento vacío.Me fue dicho que sobreponerse rápido a un personaje es un elemento esencial para ser un buen actor; pero no se si es la respuesta correcta. Supongo que no podemos decir que sea bueno o malo, solo lo dejaré ir naturalmente.
HanKyul recibió mucho amor pero HanKyul se queda en el drama a pesar de que yo lo haya creado. HanKyul es HanKyul no es Gong Yoo. A la gente le simpatizo por el carácter fresco del drama; yo solo viviré mi vida como suelo hacerlo. Amé el personaje de HanKyul, así que al momento a solo una semana del final, no puedo decir como lo dejaré ir tan rápido. De hecho no me siento con ganas de hacer eso… ¿volveré a tener tanto amor de nuevo?Q= Las personas de Coffee Prince…GY= Me han dado enormes recuerdos que nunca podré olvidar, los aprecio de todas las maneras, perdí mi objetividad con ellos si llegarán a robar, estaría de su parte. Son unas personas adorables y amables y espero que me consideren de la misma manera.

Q= ¿ Hankyul & Gong Yoo en que se parecen, y en que no?

GY= No soy mucho de camisas con botones, la mayoría de las que tengo en casa son playeras. Lo que HanKyul es diferente de mí…es que él siempre usa camisas en el drama. No usar cinturón y comúnmente vestir tenis con los pies desnudos es mucho más como soy. No me gusta la ropa justa y perder movilidad por la ropa. La ropa incomoda me restringe lo que hago y luego afecta lo que pienso. Ser libre debería ser lo único similar a mí. Lo que es diferente HanKyul de mí es que le gustan las camisas y a mí no.

“Seré un actor cuyo último sea mejor que el inicio” era de uno de mis fans que me ha estado apoyando desde mi debut. Estaba impresionado por ello y luego le dije a mi fan que yo sería así. Bueno, no se si habrá un último momento, difícil de explicar con palabras, incluso si estoy viejo y débil espero poder tener la pasión que ahora tengo y que tuve al principio; sin pasión solo hacer dinero o por la realidad.

No quiero actuar con un caparazón vacío, ya de viejo espero tener esa pasión de este momento que soy joven no importa si seguiré trabajando o no,  tal vez lo desee mucho o lo idealice pero espero poder hacerlo.

Q= ¿Cuándo te veremos en pantalla?

GY= El genero y el carácter que me gusta hacer es lo que todavía no he hecho. Supongo que todos los actores esperan lo mismo. No he hecho un personaje realmente malo. El que hice en “My Tutor Friend” no era sinceramente malo. Era mas un idiota y las personas lo vieron un tanto lindo.

Quiero hacer un personaje que sea muy cruel, sin piedad o mentalmente enfermo. Eso es lo que quiero pero no estoy seguro, si pueda tener la oportunidad; desde que el drama termino me encuentro exhausto de las dos maneras, mental y físicamente.

Después de que me recupere me gustaría encontrarme con la audiencia a través de una película, espero. Pero no puedo decir exactamente que filme será o cuando. No tengo un plan en específico al momento como previamente mencione voy a sentir el resplandor que HanKyul me trajo, analizaré el drama y tendré mi propia crítica habiendo descansado física y mentalmente. Pero si me gustaría aparecer en una película después.

Fin

“Hola soy Gong Yoo, suscriptores de Cine21 gracias por el apoyo que dieron a Coffee Prince, espero poder llegar a ustedes a través de una película en vez de un drama, cuídense de no enfermarse de gripa y por favor sigan con su apoyo a Gong Yoo.”

Trivia:

GY= ¿Era Choi HanKyul gay o no? premio para el ganador… ninguno, jejeje.

KOREAN STARS NEW BIG FOUR :GONG YOO
Youth Who Overflows with Passion! – Gong YooSpecial Plan: He Stands in Front of New Big Four’s Charm
Gong Yoo is the actor the interviewer wanted to interview the most.Compared to seeing his image in TV or on the screen, seeing him in real life showed a more careful side of him.After asking why he thought so well of the interviewer’s reputation he answered laughingly “It’s to speak well of me isn’t it?” jokingly speaking. In actuality it might be the way he said.Among the stars there are people who only answer bluntly/curtly.There are times when questions are asked in detail but the answer is either barely given or little effort is put into answering the question.

The most difficult pattern is when they say “Please write appropriately.”

But Gong Yoo understanding this side’s intention gave a superb answer sheet to the point in which the hand would go crazy.

The courtesy of the selection of material is definite and the awkward and nervous-making parts will be calmed/softened.

Is that not the reason for the relationship between the interviewer and the interviewee has a good reputation?

He said he hopes that if there are question that don’t want to be heard after the interview that they be asked anyway.

Currently among the subject of starts “The repeated questions in every interview” “First Kiss” and “Type you like” are the questions that don’t want to be asked.

So i asked because i didn’t i didn’t know if he had a fickleness towards those questions.

He answered laughingly “There are no questions i don’t like especially. In reality there are actors who don’t like questions that are unrelated to their work. But i’m not a newbie actor and my fans want to know everything that has to do with me. Now there’s nothing to hide.”

This guy is definitely not an ordinary guy.

Ordinarily how do you spend your days?
I’m not the type to immediately do what i wanted to do on a day off. When one production is finished not just physical strength but mentally you’re tired so there’s not much you can do. So i don’t plan anything and spend it leisurely.

In most cases i’m playing sports or games. Since i like sports there are a lot of cases where i’m either playing soccer with my friends or playing pool. The things everyone normally does, to celebrities, are things that are refreshing to us. There is an ease like i’ve returned to my student days.

If i can get a little longer break then i take an unexpected trip. National and international trips are both fine. Right now, i’m used to going on trips alone, so i just go alone.

Koreans don’t like doing things alone, but do you have any resistance to it?
At first it’s true i didn’t like it but right now my thoughts have changed. I even watch movies by myself. In Ap Goo Jung an arts movie theater called “Sponge House” appeared and right now on days off i spend a lot of time there. A lot of good movies are being shown there but because they are not famous productions there are only 2,3 people including me which is a lot. At those times i get the feeling that i’m paying rent for this movie theater and i can watch the movie w/out reserve (constraint) and appreciate the movie.

It seems you are part of a celebrity baseball team, what is your position?
My position is third base. I had already like baseball but this is the first time i’ve been part of a real baseball team.

Because when i was younger my father was part of the front of Pro. Baseball i often followed my father to the field. By going to the field often and by imitating exact;y what was done the skills i gorew i felt was slightly higher than that of other kids.

So whether its this team <Playboys> or shooting the movie <SuperStar Kim Sa Yong> i contrastingly did not specially receive training unlike others and went into shooting.

In the team besides you, the members are???
They are my family. Seniors Jang Dong Gun, Kim Seung Woo, Gong Hyung Jin, Hwang Jung Min, Ji Jin Hee, plus Mr. Jo In Sung, Kang Dong Won, Hyun Bin etc, actors with similar ages as well…anyway a lot of people.

Who’s the member with the best capability? (aka best player)
I don’t know. But the Seniors are the ones who have a greater enthusiasm/passion for baseball. Seniors Jang Dong Gun, Kim Seung Woo, Ji Jin Hee are considerably talented/capable. Even though they are injured they still come and even though their schedule coincides with this its to the point where they re arrange their schedule for this.

Everyone thinks that just the fact that famous people are gathering is a great effort but at what pace do you compete?

We are meeting very frequently. We compete once a week, compete within the team and finish off with other teams.

Last summer because the shooting for <One Fine Day> was so busy i wasn’t able to participate a lot and now that its winter break the team is taking a break. When it gets cold it gets easier to get hurt so that’s why there’s a winter break. It’s break until the warm spring days come.

There’s a rumor that you decided to become an actor because you had a small face, is that true?
If you can really become an actor by just having a small face then right about now every place would be filled with actors. (laughter)

Ever since my high school days i’ve often heard people tell me “Since you have a small face wouldn’t it be good if you became a celebrity.” But at that time my dream was chasing advertising.

However right when it was time to enter college the thought “If at least once you don’t enjoy your college years, it all means nothing” came to mind, so i wished an acceptance to an arts school. Actually maybe because after i entered the people around me all had strong/unique personalities and were people aspiring in either broadcasting or the movies i became used to the idea immediately. So, by chance i signed up on a VJ application and after being accepted worked here and there.

Because of your childish face you’ve had many student roles until now but don’t you feel your roles are being limited?
After i finished <One Fine Day> i didn’t hear words like “You look young.” like i did before. When i debuted at 23 yrs old i think there were a lot of people who though of me as a student. It was more like that because my debut was in <School 4>.In the 2005 broadcasted drama <Biscuit Teacher and Sugar Candy> i was 26yrs old but played a high school student. Actually in the drama the person who played the teacher Ms. Gong Hyo Jin is a year younger than me so i had a feeling of incongruity (unsuitability/unbalanced).However right now as an actor moving forward i feel i haven’t yet reached 1/3 of the carreer so i have no nervousness. (**He hasn’t covered even 1/3 of the roles out there so he isn’t worried.) It’s because right now is the time where chances to try out different roles are coming.On that note <One Fine Day> was a good chance for me to change my image.

Then as an actor what are the pros and cons?
There are a lot of places i can think of that can be pro and a con. Of course its good that an actor has deep thought/discretion, and large imagination but on occasion there are times when instincts isolate you (**keep you one wayed)

I think its better to be unaware of the character and allow the character to naturally show himself. That way the actor and the viewer can both watch with ease.

But if you think past the point of need there are times when that becomes an obstacle. That’s why it can be both a pro and a con.

Until now you have worked with pretty actresses Kim Sun Ah, Gong Hyo Jin, and Lee Yeon Hee, who did you work best with?
It’s Kim Sun Ah and Gong Hyo Jin of course.

Firstly Kim Sun Ah is a great acting senior who cares/considers her partner and allows them to act with ease.

Although Gong Hyo Jin is a year younger than me i think she follows along the path of Kim Sun Ah. She acts well and is an actress whom i personally like.

I think that compared to the other actresses she has a special charm about her.

It was fun acting with both of them. If felt like i was playing pool while i was acting. (laughter)

Among the works you’ve done so far what was the character you like the most, what about scene?
Still i like the character in <School 4> the most. There were humorous times to fit a high school student and on the other hand it was a character that was adult-like at times for no reason.

Even though it was my debut work, because it was similar to who i am i was able to act comfortably.

Are there any people who have received incentives by watching your drama/movie? Are there any roles you want to try out?
There are a lot of people who have gotten incentives. If you’re an actor no matter who you are there are times when you see a drama or movie and think “I could’ve done that role better.”

For me the evil role is one i haven’t done and the one i want (**literally: yearn)

What about Jong Soo from <My Tutor Friend>?
That wasn’t an evil role but merely a role that had the Prince disease (**aka conceited disease). [laughter] The role i’m talking about isn’t the evil role a stupid kid does but i want to act really evil deeds.

I watched <A Bittersweet Life> because i like senior Hwang Jung Min but that role is never a suitable role for anyone (**meaning that it is not a character that anyone would be comfortable or used to doing because of its evil nature). I thought “The viewers are definitely going to scream.” [laughter]

I’m going to ask about the current work <One Fine Day>. The most enthusiastic ordeal was the fact that it was a role that was a strong fighter, what about in real life?
I don’t know. Firstly i guess i don’t have the standard to fight well. Even the people who box or fight probably won’t fight like they do in the movies if a real fight comes along.

More than the standard for fighting strong i think going towards the standard for physical strength is the right thing to do.

Then is you physical strength on the strong side?
No. Its weak. [laughter] Of course i can’t stand things that don’t go right. But because this is reality i don’t just go imitate it rashly. For example, i think that since there will be no prospect of winning if i picked a fight with Yakuza [laughter] in those times it is wise to call the police.

Compared to the short and sweet hair you’ve had so far your hairstyle in <One Fine Day> shows an incredibly different image. How was it for you?
I grew it to truly fulfill the drama’s role. According to pros and cons there were people who said “Still the short hair is better” and then there were people who said “Its good to have hairstyles different from what you normally have.” It’s according to the style of the viewer.

I personally like clean cut short hair but long hair isnt bad either. During the time i was growing it, i felt like cutting it because it was so troublesome but after cutting it in the second half of shooting i missed the long hair. [laughter]

The Sydney’s Location was impressionable. The action scene where you pursue while on a motorcycle, the scene where you jump a 50m precipice, the swimming scene etc. were all done w/out a stuntman is that true?
They were dangerous and hard scenes but i looked forward to having fun shooting them.

Except, unfortunately the 50m precipice scene is not me. If that was me right about now i would be in Hollywood [laughter]. Even with a stunt man that scene was impossible so it was done with the help of CG. Actually the only times it was actually me are the simple action scenes were i’m swimming in the ocean or racing on a motorcycle [laughter].

We were able to see your toned body in the drama scenes but do you train specially for the drama?
<One Fine Day> is the drama that i took part in 8 months after <Biscuit Teacher and Sugar Candy> finished.During the resting period for about half a year i exercised everyday for about 2-3 hours. I didn’t tone my body to show someone but because i addicted to exercising. [laughter]In <One Fine Day> you received love form the pretty Sung Yoo Ri and Lee Yeon Hee how was it?
I get this question from a lot of people. Between the two who’s the prettier. Honestly both of them are pretty to the point where you cannot point out the superiority or inferiority. It was best getting the part receiving love from both of them. [laughter]Firstly though this drama i was suprised by Sung Yoo Ri. She is a person who has an ambition greater that what i imagined. It was enough that i saw the effort but that effort was displayed in the drama as well so i think she was also able to receive much love from the viewers.

Lee Yeon Hee surprised me with great acting skills and womanly charms for her age. The kiss scene with Lee Yeon Hee is a subject of conversation. Because she’s still young and doesn’t have a lot of experience it seemed like she was really nervous. That’s why the kiss scenes done with Lee Yeon Hee had several NG’s.

But the scene where i suddenly kiss Lee Yeon Hee was done with no NG’s and got the OK in one shot.

What about the most impressionable scene?
In <One Fine Day> the fact that i cried a lot left an impression. Honestly i had not thought to cry that much but because i was Gun just seeing Ha Neul (Sung Yoo Ri) raised up sadness. Those scenes that were full of emotion are deep in my memories.

Currently you were casted for the Japanese movie <Like a Dragon> and finished shooting. I heard that you agreed because you like Director Mike Takashi have you seen Mike Takashi’s work? Also, how was it after actually shooting with him?
<Smart Optical Illusion> <Beautiful Night Cruel Morning> etc I’ve seen almost everything that has been released in Korea. It was really fun and greatly impressionable.

After working with him i felt that he is a very cool person. He was someone who thre scenarios at actors but didn’t give any special directions for acting.

But because i am a Korean and my character was something the director made throught his own imagination there was some directions given but he always respected my opinions as well.

They say you like games. This movie’s motive is a game, have you tried it?
I’ve never tired it. More than the fame like that in <Like A Dragon> i often like to play sports games or starcraft etc.

Did you work well with the Japanese Actors and with the location?
Most of the shooting was done at a made set in Shizua Gyowei but the Japanese actors treated me very kindly.

Among them there was one person who shot in Korea and understood my feelings since that person was the only Japanese person during the shooting period and therefore had a hard time.

The other actors treated me kindly as well but i had the feeling they were looking at me weirdly (laughter).

As an actor who among the actors in Japan do you want to costar with? Also is there an actor who left a deep impression on you?
Among the movies i’ve seen recently the actor Odkiri Zuosang in the movie <Mezong de Himi> left a great impresssion on me. Also a few years ago Hayami Mokomichi Sang who did a CF in Korea, in the movie <Tokyo Tower> Okada Junichi Sang, Machimoto Jun Sang also left an impression on me.

Tell us your wish for 2007.
In the coming year i wish that i receive the same fruit from acting as i did. Even so sometime later i feel i might have a breakdown. Its a little embarrassing but there are times when i want to throw everything out the window and run away.

So to prevent that i hope to keep the passion i have for acting that i feel now continuously.

Keeping the passion for acting is the only wish…

That means, as an actor, the most precious but ironically easiest intention to loose is what he has carried and brought to this moment. Given to us those words are greatly weighted.

People lose their intentions and there are lots of times where they repeat meaningless days. Nevertheless he is reliable both in and off the screen. Therefore he can be an actor who we can have expectations for in future activities.

He honestly loves acting and enjoys it. And an actor who can have fun throwing punches. We do not end the hope that his wish to keep his passion and the acting that he loves.
