Choi Min-sik, ""The Admiral: Roaring Currents" helped me reflect on myself"

2014/11/13 | Permalink | Source

Choi Min-sik was awarded Best Actor at the 34th Yeong Pyeong Awards that was held on the 13th at Art Nine in Seoul.

Choi Min-sik made a speech saying, ""The Admiral: Roaring Currents" achieved a lot in terms of numbers and in appearance. It was a shameful, reflecting time for me. I had heard multiple stories about the Admiral ever since my younger days so I was boastful about it. I wanted to see why he fought, his eyes and even his hair. Now, I don't know why I was so stubborn".

"I was broken in front of such a great man; the Admiral had awakened me. I thought I was working hard, but I still had a long way to go and I had been depending on worthless imagination. This movie was a reflection on myself for a better me. I suffered but it meant a lot".

Choi Min-sik played the role of Lee Soon-sin the Admiral in the movie, "The Admiral: Roaring Currents". Choi Min-sik had to endure 20kg of battle clothing in the steaming hot weather while doing his best. "The Admiral: Roaring Currents" gathered 17 million audiences and rewrote the history of successful movies in Korea.
