[bnt interview] Jin Goo, Ready to Step Forward Anytime
“My thought was don’t be swayed
by the enthusiastic response if possible, but I don’t think I can do
that. I rather have a thought, ‘If there is a chance of losing
popularity after all, I should just have fun with it.’ A certain thing
is that I will slowly step forward again, because a strong paddle is
ready with me.”
Recently, actor Jin Goo, who is playing a role of
Seo Dae Young in the KBS2 Wednesday and Thursday drama ‘Descendants Of
The Sun’, had a group interview with bntnews and other media at a café
in Samcheong-dong, Seoul. He had the same manly image just like his role
of the drama. However, he, who never lost his smile and humbleness,
fitted better with pleasantness other than seriousness.
been such a long time until the Public TV drama to become a sensation.
The drama reached viewer ratings of about thirty percent and it is
continuing to break through its best record. Even though he is in charge
of a staunch position as a leading role, for the reason why Sergeant
Major Seo Dae Young is receiving lots of love, he said, “I think the
character is receiving lots of love because it is a sub character of a
masterpiece made by the great writer, director and staffs” and modestly
passed the credit to other people.
Isn’t the character made by
the production crew revives because of Jin Goo’s presence. His role is
like a real soldier in the army. He said, “I only have great memory of
my military life. However, if someone told me to go there again, I won’t
go (laughed). I have a lot of thankful memory. I think the image of my
predecessor, who treated me well and how I treated my successor affected
Dae Young, who has an image of a real soldier, looks unfriendly, but he
makes a witty remark in the right place and at the right time.
Moreover, just like the situation that GooWon couple is facing, his word
in an ardent situation arrested people’s attention.
“My role was
very serious since I started to act the role for the first time. So I
thought If that kind of person talks cheesy word, it might increase the
authenticity of my acting. Actually, those words are hard to use in the
real life, but I have been dreaming about using it. I think all other
male and female actors are dreaming about it too. And, it is so
wonderful to star in the drama that makes it possible. I had fun filming
it by thinking, ‘I finally played a line like that’.”
line of Seo Dae Young and Yoon Myung Joo, called GooWon couple, is also
receiving lots of love. He talked about his character’s love toward Yoon
Myung Joo, which is too big and rather sad.
the reason why GooWon couple is receiving lots of love, he said, “I
guess it is because of the writer Kim Eun Sook, who has her unique and
fresh story, to make a typical melodramatic story of GooWon couple. I
think people feel comfortable and pleasant to watch the drama scene
because of that.” He also pointed out the scene of him facing the
opposition of Yoon Joong Jang, who is a father of Yoon Myung Joo and a
superior of Seo Dae Young.
Along with a sadness of a man who
can’t do anything in front of the order and a woman chasing him, a sweet
romance of a man who gather himself together for love and a woman don’t
hide her feeling toward his change are included in the drama.
Particularly, an interesting part is that he feels more comfortable in
acting with a female actress compare to the days before his marriage.
feel comfortable acting with the opposite gender after marriage. Back
then, I felt pressured and uncomfortable with the romance scene, but now
I know how to deal with it. I think it is a good fortune that came to
me. I learned how to talk and act in front of the opposite gender.”
Goo’s wife already separated Seo Dae Young and Jin Goo as a two
different person. He said, “She said, ‘A person acts in the TV is not my
husband’ and separated me and my character from the drama. Also, my
wife really adores my young drama partner Kim Ji Won. A few days ago, I
showed a pictorial that I took with Ji Won to my wife before it’s
published and she said, ‘I can’t wait to see the actual pictorial’.” He
couldn’t hide his happiness while talking about his wife, who is
addicted to his drama from a fan’s point of view.
he constantly did several dramas and movies, but It’s been so long
until him to receive a huge response for appearing in the drama like
now. He honestly said, “My dream was to see a place overcrowded with
fans because of my appearance. I was completely about to give up this
kind of popularity.” However, as soon as he was about to give up, his
one word attracts people’s attention and a guerrilla date that he
dreamed about came true few days ago. He is expanding his field as a
popular actor just like he wished before.
“My thought was don’t
be swayed by the enthusiastic response if possible, but I don’t think I
can do that (laughed). If I am the only one who acts calm among my
friends and families that are so excited, is like I am breaking their
excitement. So, I rather have a thought, ‘If there is a chance of losing
popularity after all, I should just have fun with it.’ I need to do my
best not to get disappointed when I start to lose my popularity. A
certain thing is that I will slowly step forward again, because a strong
paddle is ready with me.” (photo by bntnews DB)
