►►[Interview] Jang Geun Suk, “I still believe in love at first sight”
Jang Geun Suk recently did an interview with Sport Chosun on December 7th, talking about various questions many viewers of “You’re Beautiful” may have in mind after watching his stellar role in the drama.
►Requests for You’re beautiful season 2 haven’t stopped
Up til now, there hasnt been any proper talk about a season 2. There are alot of people who want a 2nd season and I also think that 16 episodes passed by too quickly. If i’m given a chance, I want to be in the 2nd season too.
►It seems that there are lots of regrets because it went head to head with IRIS.
I was at a loss at the beginning because the ratings were not as good as I thought they would be but there was nothing like dissatisfaction. Instead amongst criticism, i felt grateful towards the crew and my younger coactors that we were able keep the ratings at 2 digits
►Seems that you are like Hwang tae kyung in real life as well – a bit picky (& hard to deal with)
I do have a perfectionist side to me like hwang tae kyung. But i’m not self centred. But living as tae kyung, i realised that I am a little like him. From now i need to hurry and leave tae kyung behind because I need to take up other roles.
►I’ve heard that you’ve been receiving alot of role offers
There have been alot of scripts which have been sent to us and I’ve split them between me and my manager to read. We will slowly consider the next project. Actually I had wanted to try a romantic comedy like You’re beautiful. If a chace arises next time I want to try a romantic comedy one more time. I think a love story about an older girl and a younger guy would be great.
►In the drama, you had kissing scenes with Park Shin Hye and UEE
I’ve shot a kissing scene before with shin hye before in a cosmetic cf before. That time it was a deep kiss so this time during the drama, it seems like there wasnt any pressure. But I was a bit afraid of the kissing scene with UEE. There are alot of guys out there who admire her, so I worried about being hit. So with UEE, we filmed it without NG. Hahahha
►This drama had a lot of newcomers. It seems that you had a hard time as the eldest.
This was something that happened at the ending party. The director was drunk and said to Lee Hongki “Geun Suk had opposed the casting”. But after the ending party, Hongki said to the producers “If anything, because of Geun suk hyung, I was able to act with more responsibility” Because of my younger co-actors who were so well-mannered like Hongki, I was able to act more comfortably.
►In the movie ‘The case of the itaewon Homicide”, you showed impressive acting. It seems that you were expecting something from the Blue dragon awards
I dont feel regretful because I wasnt nominated at this year’s blue dragon film awards. I’m only 23 by korean age and next year i will be 24. I think that at my age, the important thing is the process and not the result. The blue dragon film awards are held every year so i believe that one day i will be able to get an award.
►You’ve debuted for 13 years but you havent had any scandals
I also think i havent had any scandals. Why? (Park Shin Hye- jang geun suk got No1 in a poll “Which drama couple would u like to see dating in real life”) It seems that there wont be any rumours about me dating Shin hye later on. (Jokingly) I dont know about marriage rumours though. Hahaha. My mum says that Shin hye is prosperous looking and likes her alot because we are compatible for marriage (via fortunetelling). It seems that my mum knows Shin hye’s age and zodiac sign and went to have to checked out by a fortuneteller.
►Female fans are curious about jang Geun Suk’s ideal girl
I still believe in love at first sight. I was attracted to the girlfriends I’ve had in the past when I first laid my eyes on them. but It seems i change my ideal girl every year. Last year ot was Han Hye Jin but lately I like someone like soo Ae. Even though I seem to be an open guy, i’m actually quite conservative. That’s why i like feminine girls.
