A. My first thought when I read the scenario for the first time is that I wanted to act as dooyoung. Althought there are other (works) too but I really wanted to do this movie hence I choose it.
Q. Can you tell us what kind of character dooyoung has? and what do you want to point out (of this character to the audience)?
A. First of all, dooyoung is a good judo athlete. However his older brother left him and his parents died when he was young so he has a big scar in his heart. When he has made his dream come true by himself an accident happened that left him in a difficult situation, presenting the feelings dooyoung had during those times is difficult and I gave a lot of effort on that part.
Q. What are the things you do to play as a judo athlete?
A. First of all, because a judo athlete (look) healthy, to potray their physical appearance I worked really hard in exercising. Before the filming started I learned about judo. I also learned about judo techniques and the lifestyle that judo athlete has. Even though doing those things are hard but it's fun, i got interested in judo because of that and it made the filming become enjoyable.
Q. What do you think of being paired with jo jungseok who play as doosik?
A. I only have two words to say, (it was) very fun and he lead me really well. He took a really good care of us and that's why the mood on the filming scene is always bright and we're able to film it happily. Jongseok brother (and I) conversed about a lot of things from life up to acting, like a real brother. Honestly at first it was awkward but little by little we get closer and in the movie you can it as see doosik and dooyoung gradually getting closer with each other.
Q. What are the things you learned from acting together with jo jungseok?
A. Although I learned a lot just by watching (him), I feel really thankful once again for the advice I received from him. 'Even if you can't seem to fully express your symphaty about your character feelings on screens but there must be parts where you're feeling (what the character feels) in real life.' I really thank him for telling me about that. Jo jungseok brother is like the energy itself. I received a lot of strength and because of that I think I become more mature.
Q. Tell us a reason why the audience should watch the movie
A. I think this movie is the one that made you think again about the precious people around you. As you watch the movie, you can laugh a lot and because this movie has a warm storyline, I hope by watching this movie it can made people who feel depressed or sad to be happy.
