Before the premiere of tvN’s “True beauty,” Hwang in yeob went into his character and experience filming the drama!
Based on the hit webtoon of the same name, “True Beauty” is a romantic comedy about a girl named Lim Ju Gyeong (played by Moon ga young) who avidly uses makeup to hide her bare face and battle her insecurities about how she looks. STAR‘s Cha eun woo will appear in the drama as Lee Su Ho, a popular student with his own emotional wounds, while Hwang In Yeob will play Han Seo Jun, an indomitable rebel with a surprisingly warm heart.
“True Beauty” marks Hwang In Yeob’s very first lead role, and the actor couldn’t contain his excitement as he spoke about the drama.
“I first saw in an article a year ago that ‘True Beauty’ was going to be turned into drama and I was like, ‘How great would it be if I could be in this drama?'” He recalled . “Thankfully, the audition opportunity came up and I was actually able to play the cool character of Han Seo Jun. I’m extremely pleased and it feels like a dream.”
“I am behaving happily,” he continued. “Since a lot of people look forward to the drama with love and interest, I work hard to do my best and show good things.”
Hwang In Yeob described his character as follows: “Seo Jun is very stylish and looks rough and rebellious on the outside, but he is actually a very warm and considerate guy. He’s a character who just can’t be hated, and he displays new and diverse charms depending on who he interacts with. ”
When asked if his real personality was similar to Han Seo Jun’s, the actor replied, “I think my degree of synchronization with Han Seo Jun is 50 percent. We are similar in the way that I, like Seo Jun, have a cold and sharp image that seems difficult to reach out to me, but I am actually the complete opposite. I laugh a lot and joke a lot, and I’m the type who enjoy talking to other people. I also have a keen interest in real life fashion. ”
As he prepared for the role, Hwang In Yeob shared, “He is such a visually striking character that I was head to toe worried about what I could do to make myself Seo Jun-esque . “I’m currently working with the stylist team to try different things and see what makes me look more like Han Seo Jun, while also adjusting personally. ”
He continued, “Aside from the visuals, I also talk to the director a lot and work hard to get Seo Jun’s emotions to be well represented through my actions.”
However, that’s not all Hwang In Yeob did to prepare for the drama. The actor continued, “Because I wanted to make Seo Jun cool, I got a motorcycle license in real life and also took action classes. Hope you keep an eye on Seo Jun’s first entrance [in the drama]With this, you can see how all of these efforts pay off at once. ”
Hwang In Yeob also expressed full confidence in his chemistry with co-stars Moon Ga Young and Cha Eun Woo.
“Being a rookie actor, Ga Young and Eun Woo are very considerate and took good care of me,” he said. “That’s why I was able to bond with the two of them very quickly and I really enjoy playing with them.”
“Because we’re all very close, we tease each other almost every day,” the actor revealed. “I think that kind of chemistry in real life will show through in drama as well. I hope you will pay attention to the chemistry between the three of us. ”
When asked about his goals as an actor, Hwang In Yeob said, “I want to be an actor that people look forward to all the time.” I don’t think there is a sentence that could make me happier. ”
Finally I concluded, “With so many viewers looking forward to and waiting for ‘True Beauty’, I do my best and work hard while filming. I hope you get ready for the first episode on December 9th, no matter what. Many thanks!”
