In an interview with Sports Chosun, Park In Hwan talked about working with Song Kang, he said this about his vocalization,

“At first, I was practicing with Song Kang but he couldn’t pull off the lines very well. Maybe it was from a lack of confidence, but his voice was so faint so I told his agency to try for a vocalization/pronunciation classes as an advice. After that, when we filmed, I told him to Gain some confidence and just spit it out.”

In the same interview he also talked about how Song Kang was a kind man, he added,

“The kid is smart and he accepts what the director says, and he absorbs it so well without any resistance.”

  1. In Nevertheless, I think Song Kang’s acting and vocalization fit the character well. I couldn’t comment on pronunciation since I don’t know Korean, but his expression and intonation drew me in. Because of the way he presented the character, I could see that, for all Jae-Eun’s faults, he was sincere toward Nabi, and so I wanted them to figure out how to make the relationship work. I had no idea it was the same actor as in Sweet Home. He successfully portrays each character very differently. So, is he wooden? No. I was surprised at the criticism. (But because of the themes of Nevertheless, it totally makes sense to me it would be more popular overseas than in Korea.)
