preview, he, who watched the movie for three to four times, started to
talk with the trembling mind.
“When I watched the movie for the
first time, I cried. But, I gradually became more subjective and
level-headed in watching the movie. So, now I could see a deficiency
from myself. I had a lot of conversation with director by thinking that I
could have done well on my acting and did my acting was my best effort.
But I brought cheer to myself by thinking that the reason why I was
able to see the deficiency is because I arrayed myself in my best

pressure and thrill on himself. He, who thought he has a deficiency,
made Yong Bi with co-actors and director in a calm and orderly way.
was filming the drama ‘Angry Mom’. On the preparation period, I
occasionally went to the office and talked about the reasons and flows
of every action from each scene and also had some advice. While filming
the movie, director rather just believed me. When I ask ‘Is this
correct’, he gave me courage by saying, ‘Yes, it is. You are a Yong Bi’.
Therefore, I was like, ‘I am a Yong Bi. This might be correct. I should
just do whatever I feel like to do’. And then, director only told me
the part he doesn’t think is right. I think we had good communication
with each other.”

“We knew each other before. We
all met before because of Byun Yo Han. It was amazing to act all
together. We had no problem get along with each other. Therefore, every
moment of filming was fun. Filming the scene before the incident
happens, I felt like building up good memories by melting into the
scene. It was our world.”
story of actors from the same age group and youth suits well with him
and it thrilled his heart in every moment. Moreover, he traveled to Los
Angeles with Suho and build up his own meaningful memories. “The world
was too large. There are so many things to experience and I want to do
that as soon as possible.” He carefully and slowly talked about his own
story like taking out the memory puzzles written in his diary.
always thought tones of development and youth movie like ’The
Basketball Diaries’ and ‘Mommy’ were cool. I continuously did the role
of a rebel. Now I want to show a new image of myself. I like the movie
has remarkable manly side. I would like to act genius characters like
from ‘Catch Me If You Can’ and ‘Total Eclipse’. Isn’t it cool?”
would never do anything carelessly. He repetitively worried until he
wears clothes of Yong Bi and made the role with his own style. In

also to become a good person. And therefore, shouldn’t his future to be
“I want to become a believable actor. There are two
meanings for that, an actor with good acting skill and an actor has
broad spectrum, who is able to act as any kind of role. If you see
Leonardo DiCaprio, even though you know him well, you can only see him
as his role from his film. Also, I want to become a good person. I
always think about ‘What is a good person’ and it is really hard.
However, if I become a good person, it will have a big influence on me
to become a good actor. If I could do that, I think happy and good
people will be next to me and my life will be happier. (laughed)” (photo
