Lim Ju-hwan teaches Do Kyung-soo from EXO how to dance?

2015/04/13 | Permalink | Source

"I'm very extreme when it comes to personality. I'm too serious sometimes and too hyper when I'm hyper. Sometimes I joke too much as well".

Lim Ju-hwan was quite unexpected. He plays Wang Wook who struggles to win the heart of Sin Yool (Oh Yeon-seo) and the Goryeo in the MBC drama "Shine or Go Crazy". He's pretty serious in the drama but outside of the camera, he is such a happy person.

"Some say there's something missing about my role, but I personally think the story of Wang Wook is plain and neat. I think Wang Wook is better putting everything down and leaving rather than heart-aching over Sin Yool".

Wang Wook is quite devoted to Sin Yool almost as much as Wang So (Jang Hyuk). We asked him if he is unsatisfied about not fulfilling love and he spilled out his concerns.

"Wang Wook was definitely more pure hearted than Wang So. Wang So was married twice. I worried Wang So might seem provocative to the viewers; why he hates his father Wang Gun, why he's against royal marriage and how he came to fall in love with Sin Yool. Thankfully, my concerns were no longer necessary towards the end of the drama".

Lim Ju-hwan mentioned his greed for stronger characters at the production presentation previously. Did Wang Wook satisfy him?

"It's not enough. I played a bad guy in "The Con Artists" but it was 15 years and above rated so I couldn't express character as much as I wanted to. When I meet director Kim Hong-seon, I always tell him to make another adult rated movie. I am even willing to be a passerby in that movie. Every actor has a wish to be a manly and macho character at one point. Being cruel is not macho but there's something you can feel through it. I have always wanted to play a strong character like the leading character in "Birdman" or The Joker in "Batman".

Actors Jo In-sung, Song Joong-ki, Lee Kwang-soo and Kim Ki-bang are some of his close friends who help him a lot in his acting career. EXO's Do Kyung-soo recently joined this gang.

"Kyeong-soo and I became close. I'll call him Do Kyung-soo. I wondered how he might be because he's an idol but he's is very desirable. Jo In-sung doesn't evaluate younger actors often but he said, Do Kyung-soo was alright. We have a youngest member in our group".

The gang sounds fancy with names like Song Joong-ki who is almost done with National Duty.

"When we get together we talk about acting most of the time. It's quite a serious gathering. We monitor each other and even read our scripts together. We sometimes memorize each others' scripts and advise one another. Do Kyung-soo recently showed us some moves to his new song and we pointed out some improvements in the routine. Song Joong-ki might need some time adapting to the environment once he gets out but he always has us to monitor him".
