“I think to myself, ‘I’m so glad I became an actor.’ Thanks to so many people, I’m continuing my acting career in bliss, and I’m thrilled that you’re watching the process happily and staying by my side along the way.”
Kim Sun Ho, who received great love for his role in Start-Up, expressed his happiness in a recent written interview with Newsis.
Kim Sun Ho was modest in front of the title “all-time second lead.”
“That’s too much of a compliment. Suzy and Nam Joo Hyuk led the play well, and that’s why I also received favorable reviews. These two are such popular friends that I think I benefited a lot. It was just awesome to have been a part of a project called Start-Up. The staff and actors were all great people that I finished the work pleasantly without any difficulty.”
He also showed his regret over the end of the drama.
“I’m so sorry that it’s over. I also feel sorry that I will never get to see Ji Pyung again. It was an honor to live as Han Ji Pyung.”
His appearance in the drama was all the more meaningful because he is a big fan of writer Park Hye Ryeon.
“I really enjoyed I Hear Your Voice and Pinocchio. When I read the script, the words were just beautiful and pretty. I thought it would be amazing if I could be a part of it, and I’m honored that I was given a chance.”
Han Ji Pyung is the kind of person who grumbles outside but does everything for his loved one. What about Kim Sun Ho?
“I tend to think that comfort and stability are a must when it comes to work and love. Having your heart flutter is good, but I think it would be better if we live each other’s life to the fullest, cheer for each other and live a pleasant life together.”
What was it like working with Suzy and Nam Joo Hyuk?
“Suzy has excellent concentration and is an excellent actress. She also knows how to lead the filming site with pleasant energy, so I got to film delightfully, too. Nam Joo Hyuk is a great actor and a great friend. I learned a lot throughout the time we worked together, and I remember how I was always laughing. Every time we acted together, their bubbly ideas shone bright, and thanks to that, I was able to enjoy every moment.”
Kim Sun Ho is also called the “idol in the theatrical world.” What’s the difference between drama and play?
“There is a clear difference in techniques. Dramas have various angles and compositions, such as bust shot, tight shot and full shot, so the focus of acting varies depending on it. But the play is only shown in full shot during the performance. Facial expressions are important, but some parts need special care different from dramas like body movements, gestures and movements.”
Kim Sun Ho’s goal is to become an actor “who his fellow actors want to work with again.”
“I think I will greet audiences through a play called Ice in January. I want to approach you as a more comfortable actor next year. Above all, I want to be an actor who always improves.”
