Kwak Dong Yeon, who played Jang Han Seo on tvN series Vincenzo, did a photoshoot and an interview with the men’s fashion and lifestyle magazine Esquire for its June issue.
In the interview, he talked about ‘Ask me anything’ on Instagram, which has become viral. Kwak Dong Yeon said, “I have a lot to catch up on when it comes to slang. I started replying with handwriting cause I didn’t know how to input text. I’ll keep doing it since it seems more earnest and fans love it.”
When asked if his sense of humor is an inborn quality, he replied, “My jokes were born from my career that started when I was very young.” He added, “For a long time, I’ve wanted to work in a fun and pleasant working environment. And as I grew older, I started to think that I also want to entertain my fans, not just the people around me. I think that’s why I developed my sense of humor,”
When he heard that he gained so many older male fans, he got very excited and said he’s happy about it.
Kwak Dong Yeon, who became a rising star with his role on KBS’s Love in the Moonlight, picked historical drama as a genre that he wants to try. He said, “I wanna do a historical drama, a period drama that requires me to perform lots of action scenes.” Then, he continued, “I haven’t done any work where romance is at the center of. I’ve older now. I think I can do romance.”
