Jung II-woo did not get a rest after finishing “Flower Boy Ramyun Shop” and jumped right into a Hanbok to play the role of a fantasy Joseon Crown Prince called Yang-myung. Jung II-woo was hesitant to take the role as he felt he did not have enough time to rest, but fortunately he decided to take it as advised by its main director Kim Do-hoon, who had also just finished another work around three months before.
This Press Conference was so gorgeous because every character had its own colors. Jung II-woo was in … froggy green! He looked so stunning! Like he was the king! 🙂
I am posting videos first, then photos and then an interview at the very end. Enjoy!

Moderator: Well, please give us a word about the role you play this time.
II-woo: Hello, this is Jeong Il who plays the role of Yang Myeong.
The previous work was Zaibatsu II, but this time I feel very good as my status has risen to the royal family. Yang Myeong role played by me is awkward and bright on the surface, but the inside is a lot of anguish. A bright laughter is a person who seems even more sad. I took on such a role to infer confidence between reason and sensitivity.
Tsuji: In my previous work I played a slight chaebol II, this time it is a heavy prince, what kind of change are there, and I think that the only historical experienced person among the actors coming here. In what kind of difference is there with the historical theatre of the previous time and to play the historical theater to the co-stars. If you have any advice or anything else.
II-woo: In the previous work, it was a character that also has a light aspect and a serious aspect. The role of Yang Myeong who assumed this time is also the same, it is bright and superficial on the surface, but on the inside is a very heavy, painful friend. So, because it is a historical theater, I think acting will be a bit heavy, but I do not feel such a big pressure.
Actually still … Since shooting has not started, I do not know yet what kind of difference is. However, I learned a lot about at the time of Iljimae. Although I was still young at the time, I tried acting with the attitude to learn a lot. Again in this work, I think that I will work on performance while learning things with my colleagues, seniors, and friends.
Tsukasa: Then, as a historical experience, if you have good advice for colleagues who are not experienced in historical theaters.
II-woo: Yes, we are going to shoot from 1/3, but it is so cold that I think the fight against cold is the biggest. So, I think that it would be better to wear underwear.
Reporters: Jeong Il and Mr. Song Jae-Rim co-starred in the previous work, and will also be co-starred in this work, are not they?
Please give me a word about that point.
II-woo: I co-starred as my friend in the previous work “Ikemenramen shop”, but it was a lot of fun. I am glad that I could make the same work together like this again this time. Actually, I was pleased to hear that my brother’s casting was decided after my casting was decided. I think that the role of this time is also very well suited and I think that I can perform more comfortably.
Tsukasa: In this work, sad love towards Jonu seems to be drawn. I’m curious about your actual romantic style.
II-woo: The love style rises quickly like an aluminum pot. And if you break up, it seems to cool down soon.
Tsukasa: That’s a shocking remark. I’m in a panic. It’s getting cold soon ~
I: These kind of relationships and love seems to change every year. So each year the ideal type will change. Love style also changed. It is not going to be settled ^ ^
Tsuji: No, it’s okay. By the way, is Han · Gain, who is next to you, the ideal type?
II-woo: It is very beautiful, and acting is also a good senior, so it is my ideal type.
Note: Please give us your thoughts on the rating of this work one word at a time.
II-woo: I think … I hope to go up as I repeat the times. Rather than getting high figures at the first time, who gradually went up with each turn, I think that it will be the power of staff and performers.
Tsuji: How many episodes will the drama have?
II-woo: It is 20 episodes.
Tsuji: What percent should I go out for the first time?
II-woo: Since it is 2012, it is about 12%.
Tsuji: Mizuki drama, 1/4 first broadcast. What is the main attraction?
II-woo: The “Moon holding the sun” is the first historical drama of 2012, and has never been seen before,It is a drama in which fantasy and romance interwoven. The more you talk, the more it will be interesting, suffering from love.
