Son Ho-jun, "I'm in the process of becoming an actor"

2015/10/12 | Permalink | Source

Son Ho-jun, from the movie "Secret", was surprising. He wasn't the guy from "Three Meals A Day" where he ran errands for Cha Seung-won and Yoo Hae-jin and played with the puppies and cats there. He played Nam Cheol-woong, a man who spent 10 years planning his revenge for his girlfriend.

His acting didn't come out of nowhere. Son Ho-jun was completely engrossed in his character who spends 10 years waiting for revenge. He explained what he was thinking when he acted out every scene and he was sincere about it.

Son Ho-jun didn't get his popularity from fanciness. His appearance in the TV show "Three Meals A Day" with Cha Seung-won and Yoo Hae-jin made him look friendly. He answered all questions about acting without hesitation and although he says he's only in the process of becoming an actor, he's got what it takes to be called an actor now.

Son Ho-jun is taking step by step to become the actor he wants to be.

"I have many discussions with the director no matter what the role is. I want to know his intentions and thoughts, then think about it. I thought it might be hard because there are two directors this time. But the female director helped me with emotional parts while the male director gave me the big picture. There's a choice when there are two directors. I could choose what helped me understand the most".

Ho-joon is working hard to become a good actor. He starred in the movie "Secret" with Lee Soon-jae and Sung Dong-il who gave him advice that he treats as nutrients. He calls Sung Dong-il his 'father'.

"I didn't have a big part in the drama "Answer Me 1994". Sung Dong-il taught me how to stand out while I played small parts. Cha Seung-won and Yoo Hae-jin tell me I'm doing well. I asked Lee Soon-jae how I can be better and he told me he didn't know. For someone like him to say that, I'm still a beginner".

Son Ho-jun has become an entertainer thanks to "Three Meals A Day". He starred in many other shows after that. Because of his dark role in the movie, he must've hesitated to be in the second season of "Three Meals A Day" but he says no.

"I think the public has matured much more so I think they'll be able to tell the difference between Son Ho-jun on TV and Nam Cheol-woong in the movie".

Son Ho-jun wasn't always this sincere. He talked about Yoo Yeon-seok, who he's friends with. He planned to travel with Yoo Yeon-seok but they never were able to figure out a time to.

"We can't seem to work out our times. When I'm in a drama, he's free, and when I'm free, he's in a musical. I don't have a choice because Yeon-seok travels a lot. I don't know much so he always tells me. He draws up my travel course when I tell him what I want to do or see".

Son Ho-jun wants to be acknowledged. He said, "This is the time when everyone reviews me. I want to do any character or genre after that. I succeeded in changing my image for "Secret" but it's too soon to call myself an actor". Son Ho-jun made achievements on TV by doing his work quietly. The same thing goes for his path to becoming an actor.
