Despite his busy schedule, the 19-year-old actor made a trip down to Malaysia and Singapore as part of the drama promotional activities for To The Beautiful You, which is currently airing on ONE (StarHub TV Ch 823) every Wednesday and Thursday at 9.05pm. Not a fresh face on screen, Lee Hyun Woo has previously participated in popular dramas such as King Sejong the Great (2008), The Return of Iljimae (2009), Queen Seondeok (2009), God of Study (2010), Equator Man (2012), just to name a few.
Having started out as a child actor in his acting career, Hyun Woo has picked up various skills and experiences from acting and shares about his desire to return as a better actor on screen, “There are many roles that I wish to partake on in the near future. I don’t feel that there is any one character that is more distinctive or stands out more from the roles I have previously played because each character has its own unique appearance. Sometimes I worry about not being able to deliver my role well or when my acting is not up to standard, but it drives me to work harder and become a better actor than before.”
“In the drama, Cha Eun Gyeol has a one-sided love for Gu Jae Hee and he confessed to her without knowing she was disguised as a guy. Cha Eun Gyeol was probably feeling in such a manner, that’s how he portrayed it due to his circumstance. If you were to put me in the same situation but as a real life example, it would actually be very difficult for me to come to the same conclusion. I have not experienced a real relationship nor one-sided love before and was just acting according to the script, which was probably how I would feel in the shoes of Eun Gyeol.”
“As an actor, I am deeply thankful for the chance to play a role in a drama or movie. When the role is nicely performed, I find it very encouraging to receive feedback from the viewers and fans. It boasts my interest further and drives me to work harder in my next project. Acting provides me multiple opportunities to play different roles and experience the unique lifestyles from these roles, which helps me to better portray and present the character well on screen. I enjoy being an actor and am really thankful and grateful for all the support shown to me thus far.”
