Kim Dong-wook, "'Maids' was tough mentally and physically"

Kim Dong-wook was recently interviewed by News N.

He starred in the JTBC drama "Maids" as Kim Eun-ki, who was purely in love with Gook In-yup (Jung Yoo-mi).

Kim Dong-wook completed military service and returned with "Maids". He talked about the pressure of being in a historical as soon as he was done with duty. But why did he choose "Maids"? He said, "The role is very appealing. I was impressed by the script and I didn't want to let the chance go just because it was a historical drama.

Kim Dong-wook stood out as Kim Eun-ki. His talent had everything to do with Kim Eun-ki being so popular. Kim Eun-ki went through a chain of emotions from being a romantic guy to finding out the truth about his father.

It wasn't always easy acting out Kim Eun-ki. Kim Dong-wook says, "I knew I'd be going on a rollercoaster when I chose to be Kim Eun-ki. It wasn't going to be easy. That made me want this role even more. I thought about the achievement at the end of the day".

Kim Dong-wook showed a whole new side of him through "Maids". He said, "I feel like I did my best but I think I can do better after time when I've had more experience in the future".

"Maids" Kim Eun-ki only has eyes for Gook In-yup but doesn't succeed at winning her heart. He watches her go to another man. Kim Dong-wook said, "Kim Eun-ki resents Gook In-yup but he couldn't let her go because he loved her so much".

Kim Eun-ki died in the end trying to protect Gook In-yup. The end of the undying love was death. He said the scene is an impressive one. He said, "If you die, that's it. You can't show anything else. I thought about it a lot. I concentrated on making the story work".

""Maids" was an attractive but not an easy drama. It was mentally and physically challenging; however, I think this made me that much more mature and I think I can do better in the future".

Kim Dong-wook shot the movie "Three Summer Nights" as well. He said the military made him realize the preciousness of acting.

"I didn't feel nervous in base. I just started to be thankful for being able to do what I want. I don't want to take a break. I just don't my absence to go on for a long time".

"Three Summer Nights" is being released soon. Kim Dong-wook is a completely different character in this movie. He said, "I focus on the character a lot when I choose a work".

Kim enjoys watching TV shows when he's not working. He doesn't miss any comedy shows". I love how well the comedians act. They are so funny".

Will we see Kim Dong-wook on a comedy show one day? Kim Dong-wook says, "I think it's best those who are good at making people laugh do it".

How does he want to be remembered by the public? He said, "I want to be a trusted actor. I want people to make plans to watch anything I come out with".

Kim Dong-wook is currently taking a break.
