Song Seung Heon, the lead actor for upcoming drama Saimdang, made an appearance at a press conference hosted by Singtel and Oh!K, where he answered several questions about his acting career as well as his role in the drama.
When asked how it was like to act alongside veteran actress Lee Young Ae in Saimdang, the humble actor said that he felt extremely honoured but nervous at the same time to be co-starring with such a skilled and experienced actress.
He also recalled a funny moment when they just started filming, sharing that they had multiple NGs because of the mistakes they made despite being veteran actors, as both of them were too tense around each other.
On his upcoming drama, Song Seung Heon explained that he felt the desire to change the stereotype about how historical characters should act, so he often consulted with the producer before the cameras start rolling.
If there’s any similarity between his character Lee Gyeom and himself, the actor revealed that if they were to choose one woman to love, they will stick with their choice and love only her for the entire lifetime.
