Lee Seo Jin opened up about his shocking transformation in the upcoming TVING series Internal Medicine Director Park.
“I’ve loved the comedy genre since I was young. At the time, skits were the trend, so I enjoyed shows like ‘No.1 Humor,'” he shared. “I still like sitcoms, gag shows, and American series like Modern Family. Internal Medicine Director Park had that B comedy movie vibe, so I chose the work.”
The actor also mentioned his shocking transformation that went viral online. “As an actor, I don’t consider makeup or disguise as a difficult task,” he explained. “The first day I put on the makeup, all the staff cracked up. Everyone cheered when I filmed the bald scenes. Seeing their reactions, I felt proud.”
Lee Seo Joon said he had read all the comments since the main poster was released. In particular, he said he liked the comment that read, “Even Lee Seo Jin is working this hard. We have to live harder.” He responded, “(After reading it) I thought I also have to work harder.”
On this day, Internal Medicine Director Park also released the still photos of Lee Seo Jin. The completely different vibe he showed in the images drew keen attention.
Meanwhile, Internal Medicine Director Park is a drama adaptation of a webtoon of the same title, depicting a rookie doctor’s “funny yet sad” life of being a doctor. The series will be released exclusively on TVING on January 14th.
