About his character in “Mad Dog” he said,
“I was filming ‘save me,’ and I received ‘Mad Dog’ script 2-3 weeks before shooting. I did not have enough time to thoroughly analyse the character. Nevertheless, in the early days, I played the character without knowing who he was. By time I realized that Kim Min Joon was a smart character who did not know where to go.
As I continued to work without breaks, I learned to take responsibility for every action I do. “
The actor added,
“I still do not know what kind of image I represent as an actor. I don’t intentionally choose a character. I just feel attracted to them. I’ve never stuck with genres, but I’ve only starred in works that have a strong theme. But I think it would also be good to appear in a romantic genre. If the drama contains a good message I wouldn’t have a reason to decline. “
