Actor Jung Gyeo-woon has expressed his deep gratitude to fellow actresses Choi Myung-gil and Park Ye-jin. They all are appearing in the KBS2 drama “Again, My Love” (or “Hateful but Once Again”).
Choi plays Jung’s mother, who runs a business, and Park plays his lover, an anchorwoman.
Jung said in a recent interview, “The two are playing strong characters in the drama, but in reality they are so kind that I feel comfortable acting with them.”
He said, “I’m just not good at cramming scripts within a short period of time, so I often come to a shoot without memorizing them perfectly, due to a tight shooting schedule, and make many mistakes in delivering my lines. But Park never gets upset about it and rather helps me. I really feel grateful for that. She started acting much earlier than I, but I didn’t know she is such a good actress. Working with her in the drama, I have surely realized how good she is. I particularly learned a lot about dealing with emotional scenes.”
Jung continued, saying that he could learn enthusiasm and desire for acting from her as well. He said, “Seeing her demonstrate her easygoing and good-natured side in the SBS program ‘Here Comes the Family,’ which is totally different from the character she is playing in the drama, I just admire her ability to transform herself according to her roles.”
About Choi, Jung said that she is young in spirit although she is 20 years his senior. He said, “She is just as energetic as young people, and it seems that she uses her energy in acting. She is a strict, difficult mother in the drama, but I feel the most comfortable acting with her. She treats me as if we have known each other for a long time.” (KBS)
