Song made the remark during a showcase celebrating the premiere of his film "A Better Tomorrow" on Monday while taking part in a o/x quiz session alongside other cast members Joo Jin-mo, Kim Kang-woo and Jo Han-sun.
In a separate question and answer session, the 33-year-old actor picked the hardest moments in shooting the film as being in the order of "the wait, my character from three years after, and the action scenes".
"Director Song Hae-seong puts in a lot of effort into each cut in each scene so I ended up waiting for up to 15 hours for a single scene, I stopped filming for almost 20 days to portray my character Young-choon from three years later to practice smoking after having had a hard time quitting, and I was told to act out dangerous action scenes", the actor explained.
"A Better Tomorrow", a Korean remake of the Hong Kong classic "A Better Tomorrow, 1986", is set for a release on September 16 and has been officially invited to the 67th Venice International Film Festival.
Song has been one of Korea's hottest male actors since appearing in popular sitcom "Three Guys and Three Girls" (MBC, 1996) and has since starred in many television dramas and films including the smash hits "Autumn in my Heart" (KBS2, 2000), "Summer Scent" (KBS2, 2003) and "East of Eden" (MBC, 2008).
