WITAT: What I Thing About That…
I really enjoyed reading this interview. It reveals a lot of the insecurities that Jung Il-woo has had as an actor and how he overcame them. It was surprising to me the degree of insecurity that he felt at some moments in his career… even more surprising to find out he could not find a role to portray… how is that even possible!???
I guess one would be the reflection of the other… if you are not sure of something it is hard to achieve that something… is it not?
In that question he gets asked ” Then, is there anything that you think you have that no other actor does? His answer is ‘It would definitely be nice to have something like that!’… But you do Jung Il-woo. This is what sets you apart from all other South Korean actors: You are 100% true. Legit. Down to Earth. Reachable. 0 Pedestal! You are the most honest, humble and kind celebrity I have ever seen. You don’t care if the truth makes you vulnerable, you put yourself out there… The way you try to connect with people and stay off the pedestal is incomparable. You event try doing small Fan Meets so you can interact more with your fans!
And how did you get here? How did you get to become such a true, kind person? Maybe? your accident had to do a lot with it… It is the kind of accident that can make one realize how precious life is…not just yours, everyone’s, and that every person is deserving of your attention… no matter who they are… and that one must be true as life is short and there is no time to lose in pretension and lies.
Anyway…that’s what I think about that!
