Park hae jin shared his thoughts on winning his very first Daesang (Grand Prize)!
On December 30th, Park Hae Jin taken home the Daesang on 2020 MBC Drama Awards for his leading role in “Kkondae Intern. “After his win, the actor sat down for an interview with Ilgan Sports to discuss what it was like to receive the first Daesang of his 14-year career.
Park Hae Jin repeatedly emphasized his disbelief in winning the awards and humbly remarked, “I didn’t do much, but somehow I got a daesang. I sent texts to people who said, “I’m sorry I was the one who got it.” During my acting life I thought to myself, ‘Will I ever be able to win this type of award?’“
“I think at least 50 percent of my winning that award was luck,” he continued. “40 percent was the strength of the drama itself, and I think I only contributed about 10 percent.”
The actor further admitted, “In accepting awards, I’ve seen a lot of people feel burdened and say, ‘I don’t know if I deserve to win this award. ‘Now I understand why they said that. Perhaps because of the current situation, but instead of being happy about the award, I kept thinking: “What should I do? I am in big trouble. ‘I had a lot of mixed feelings. ”
Park Hae Jin described his experience after his big night ended as follows: “After the award ceremony, I went straight home, washed, and went to sleep. I had never seen so many messages of congratulations in my life. No matter how much I scrolled and scrolled, there was still new messages. ”
Regarding his role in “Kkondae Intern,” in which he played a man who finally took revenge on a former boss who once made his life miserable, Park Hae Jin said, “It was a new challenge for me and as an actor I think it was a great character. But because of that I struggled even more. I worked hard to try to fit in with the drama without attracting attention, but also looking three-dimensional at the same time. ”
The actor didn’t seem to have enough good things to say about the cast and crew of the drama, recalling, “Of all of my acting projects so far, I’ve been the happiest [while filming ‘Kkondae Intern’]. It was a gathering of people who were all genuinely friendly to the bone, so there was never any trouble or conflict, and we ended the drama well. There was really a lot of camaraderie and the set was always full of laughter. ”
When asked about the possibility of a second season of the drama, Park Hae Jin replied, “I’m also in a position waiting to hear about it. Even if it’s not ‘Kkondae Intern’, I really want to work with this team again on another project, no matter what. ”
He continued, “For my next role, I’m currently in talks on another project. I look forward to welcoming you with good things soon. “”
