The rising actor Lee Seo Won recently sat down for an interview to talk about his recently finished drama “Hospital Ship.”
He played the role of a 30-year-old character, a character 10 years older than his real age. The actor talked about his co-star Ha Ji Won. In real life she’s nearly 20 years older, the actor had nothing but good things to share about his experience of working with her, he said,
“She is a bright person. Even when we’re working late a night, she doesn’t lose her smile. She has great energy. My respect towards her flares up whenever I see her.
We’re 20 years apart but I never once felt that during filming. She’s really good to me. I don’t know how to put this, but she really knows how to treat her juniors well. There is no incompatibility when she’s around young people. Of course, her baby face also plays a part, she’s someone who creates a lively atmosphere.”
The young rising actor is often compared to Park Bo Gum and Song Joong Ki, his label mates of Blossom Entertainment. His path is similar to the successful actors which prompted many people to compare him to them.
About that, the actor had a humble reply and said,
“It’s a huge honor to be compared to them. However, I worry that being compared to them brings them inconvenience. Who am I to be compared to them? I would like to grow as an actor on my own. I don’t want to be disturbed by being someone’s modifier. I want to be loved as me.”
The actor also added,
“Whenever I am being compared to them, it makes me want to work harder. I will work hard and I’d like you to watch over me. Thank you to everyone who supported me.”
