The day when Taekyung went to the set in a baseball uniform.. [Happy Together/2018.05.03]


Taekyung, it was your first drama. I bet acting on stage and on camera – Right. / – must be different. Don’t you need a bit of time to adjust? I needed more than a bit of time. This is what I especially had a hard time with. Since it was my first appearance in a drama, I wanted to film the drama – when I was my best self. / – That’s right. – Exactly. / – I got my biorhythm – You got it in sync. / – in sync with the drama. – “Biorhythm”. / – I wanted to do that. Waiting for 9 to 10 hours was nothing out of the ordinary. – Scenes get canceled too. / – That’s so true. – Right. / – I waited for 10 hours, – It gets canceled. / – but it gets cut. Can’t you do a side job while waiting? You can knit. – They can sew. / – They can solder. Myungsoo, why don’t you get a side job, then? – When you don’t talk… / – You should give it a go. – Like a potter’s wheel? / – Yes, that sounds great. – I could do that. / – That’d be great. – I’m not doing much. / – That’s so true. If I have the wheel, I can be productive. – Exactly. / – I can get the screws. This was the hardest part. When I was waiting for my scene, I could stay productive if I knew how long I would wait. – There is no set time. / – You have a point. – But it could be endless. / – That’s right. After that, I book lodging near where I’d be filming. (He books a room now.) – I ask for that. / – That might be better. After that, I gave up trying to look good. I would be resting in my room. – When I’m called, / – You go then. I go out in a hat after lying around. I presume that the rest of the cast must’ve waited too. It must be the same for Jinhee and Namjoo. I’m not sure. – “I’m not sure.” / – Well… – But you’d know. / – “I’m not sure.” “I’m not sure.” – People don’t say that on TV shows. / – He said… I’m not sure. People don’t say that on variety shows. You must’ve been tired. – I’ll try not to say it. / – No, no. – Be yourself. / – I… – Namjoo and Jinhee / – Okay. – were the main leads. / – Right. – It’s not the wait. / – They don’t wait. – They film all day long. / – They have to work a lot. – That’d be harder. / – I mean… You said Jinhee helped you make the transition. I met Jinhee six or seven years ago at a private gathering. At that time, he seemed like he was in another category altogether as a lead actor. He didn’t seem approachable. – You got that just from looking at him? / – Yes. – He was charismatic? / – He was just quiet. – He was charismatic. / – I felt that he wanted to be the man of the hour and be in the limelight. That’s the vibe I got from him. You discussed that with Hyunmoo when you felt it. Did you not discuss it with Jinhee? – At the time… / – It depends on who it is. He wasn’t like that, though. – That bad? / – “I’m not sure.” I don’t know what to say. He was like that, but he didn’t remember meeting me. When we met on the set for the first time, I wasn’t in the scene. I was asked to check out how the shoot goes, but I had a baseball match at the time. I went to the set in a baseball uniform. – What happened? / – As soon as he saw me, instead of saying hello, he said, “How many home runs have you hit?” “How many home runs have you hit?” I thought to myself, “What an interesting man.” – You were annoyed, right? / – No. – He didn’t hit any. / – Weren’t you upset? “Jinhee, don’t people beat you up often?” (Flustered) “I bet they do.” “How many home runs have you hit? I hit six home runs.” He had the same image I saw six or seven years ago. – I see. / – I thought, “So he is like that.” – I thought that. / – “He is cocky.” But once the shoot started, he surprised me. He took good care of me and treated me very warmly. But he treated me so warmly before the shoot and talked to me nonstop. Are you saying it was uncomfortable? Is that what you are saying? – “This is too much.” / – You wanted to concentrate. You’re too sensitive. You are too harsh on Jinhee. I tried to concentrate, but he went, “You like sports, right?” “Have you tried rock climbing?” – Then he used an inhaler. / – An inhaler. “Do you want to try it?” I couldn’t concentrate. – He’s very different from his drama roles. / – Yes. And when the shoot started after… (He became professional.) He can switch up quickly. Yes. Since I’m not an experienced actor, I wanted some time to get into the emotions. Thanks to him, the shoot was comfortable and nice. Your story and the conclusion don’t match. – Your words don’t add up. / – You struggled. Let’s just say that Taekyung is sensitive. I’m sensitive and Jinhee is kind-hearted. Is that the conclusion? – Yes, it is. / – All right. He is sensitive. He takes five minutes to answer one question. At least, he’s started to talk less. I started to talk faster, too. You’re doing great. Please condense your story a bit more. Please talk faster. You talked about Jinhee. The leading actress was Kim Namjoo. Did you become close to her as well? She was very professional. Okay. (They won’t let him drag out his story.) I want to ask other guests a question. Since “Misty” was Taekyung’s first drama, he struggled with the long wait. – Do you have the know-how? / – That’s right. Some people make good use of the time. They use the snippets of time. You have to get into your character. Some people can do it instantaneously – like Jinhee. / – That’s right. While I can do it, I like to take my time to give a better performance. – “I can do it.” / – “It’s not that I can’t do it.” “I’m not someone who can’t do it.” “I can do it.” Before a sad scene, I listen to sad music. – You listen to sad music. / – You get into it. That’s how I like to spend my time. Depending on the scene, you have to be absorbed in the emotions. – How about you? / – Did you lie down? For goodness’ sake. Did you lie down ahead of time? Are you still in character? – He became his character. / – I think he did. – Lee Yoonseok sat there last week. / – That’s right. They seem similar. You are right. The seat makes me feel weaker. I heard that working with Kim Namjoo brought you closer to Kim Seungwoo. After “Misty” ended, I got a call from Namjoo. When I answered, I realized that Seungwoo was the caller. He said that he wants to buy dinner for the crew of “Misty”. So I agreed and went. When he saw me, he said, “Hello, Myungwoo.” That’s the name of my character. He said (Seungwoo was moved by the reunion scene.) he cried a lot at the reunion scene. For three consecutive days, we drank together. – You continued to drink. / – Yes. The crew was supposed to go on a vacation. The dinner took place a day before the vacation. I was supposed to go to the airport by 4:30 a.m., but we drank until 4 a.m. and I ended up not going. Goodness. Really? You didn’t go because you drank. Only the staff members went. Are you holding grudges against Seungwoo as well? No, I am not! Don’t you think you are too sensitive? Why are you attacking me? I don’t hold grudges. I have blood type O. (We believe you.) I think… I think Taekyung will be ill for a few days after he goes home. Seriously. Maybe he will walk out. “How was Happy Together?” “I don’t know.” When he goes to “Law of the Jungle”, he’ll do this while the others work. “I was on Happy Together.” “There was a misunderstanding.” You’ll end up visiting all major variety shows.
