On Tuesday, 22nd of November, two main cast of tvN’s mega drama, Entourage, Seo Kang Joon and Lee Dong Hwi had a press conference with media from Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Taiwan at RWS Singapore.

They shared their favourite memories about filming the drama, and travelling around Korea was Seo Kang Joon’s favourite moment. The drama was filmed not only in Seoul, thus it required the actors to travel around places for filming. The casts will also play games with punishments, and Lee Dong Hwi lost in a game when they were in Busan and he had to stand in the pouring rain for 5 minutes. In the end, the poor actor caught a cold. The MC commented that fans are going to be all ready and shelter him from the rain next time, come on fans ;).

Entourage is a Korean re-make of the popular US drama series of the same title, starring Seo Kang-joon, Cho Jin-woong, Lee Gwang-soo, Park Jung-min and Lee Dong-hwi. The drama surrounds the “bromance” among young popular actor, Cha Young-bin (Seo Kang-Joon) and his childhood best buddies Lee Ho-jin (Park Jung-Min), Cha Joon (Lee Kwang-Soo) and “Turtle” Geobook (Lee Dong-hwi), as well as the interesting encounter with Kim Eun-gab (Cho Jin-woong), CEO of Cha Young-bin’s management agency.

However, both actors cleared that they are the total opposites of their characters in the drama and in real life. The role Seo Kang Joon takes on in the drama is a top star in Korea, which is what he wants to become, lives a extravagant life that he wonders if its the way how Korean top star live. He always stay at home to play with his cat, or invites his friends over for beer or walk along Han River alone. Unlike his character in the drama, where Cha Young Bin goes to a lot of hot places to hang out with his friends. The only similarity he has with Young Bin is that he will suit his friends’ desire and do what they want.

As for Lee Dong Hwi, he is also the type of person which likes to stay at home to play his playstation. Unlike his character which likes to go out a lot and is very dependent on his friends for everything as he doesn’t earn money, he is a very independent person who will like to solve his own problems without relying on his friends. Both of them are actually total opposites of their character where in real life they love to stay at home.

Dong Hwi also commented that acting is not easy for him, as every single second in his acting career is a challenge for him. He is always worrying about what role he should take on next. He gave his best in his role of being a good friend of Young Bin and he hope that it is being delivered to the viewers through the show.

Seo Kang Jun wanted to show a different image from his role Baek In Ho in his previous drama, Cheese in the Trap, he too, was also worrying about the type of roles he choose to take on for his future plans. Baek In Ho is a young man in his 20’s so he is a simple guy chasing after his dreams with a sad story, while in Entourage he is playing as a growing celebrity in the entertainment industry. Thus it is two very different characters for him.

In Reply 1998, Lee Dong Hwi was portraying as a lonely guy with no friends and he has to strive for everything alone. While in Entourage, he has a famous celebrity friend thus the lifestyle is very different. In Entourage, he plays a witty character but which is actually a total opposite of what he is in real life.

On why viewers should watch this drama, Seo Kang Joon commented that it conveys the happiness of the entertainment industry and it about love and friendship. Lee Dong Hwi also added on that if anyone is curious about the Korean entertainment industry, they should watch the drama. It also shows how the main cast mature through the industry.

[COVERAGE] Seo Kang Joon #CheeseintheTrap Press Conference in Singapore

IMG_6951 Seo Kang Joon plays Baek In Ho in the hot trend K-drama, Cheese in the Trap. He was invited to Singapore by Starhub to greet his fans for his first time here! The weather was a lot hotter than what the actor expected but lucky for KangJoon, it was raining on the day of press conference/fan-meet.

With regards to In Ho and his real self, he feels that both of them have very different personality. Initially he was worried because the character was very different from his own character. He’s more of an introvert and calm person, but In-Ho is more wild and charming. But while he was filming the show, he became more comfortable with the character. And because of Baek In Ho’s character, he’s been started to swear a lot with his 5urpr!se members and his friends. It just naturally come out with his mouth even though he is not filming! My members did not really comment or gave him much feedback about his acting or character. But after they watched the drama, they just give Kang Joon a simple “it looks fun” comment.

5urpr!se is a South Korean idol band formed in 2013. Their members consist of Seo Kang-joon, Gong Myung, Yoo Il, Kang Tae-oh and Lee Tae-hwan.

Also, since Cheese in the Trap has a lot of fans, many doubted him on his decision to take up the role of In Ho. KangJoon was pressurized by the concern but he had a goal to break those negative expectations. Thus, he studied his character a lot and consulted the director a lot. His hard work has been proven through the viewers’ compliments and he is now confident with his role. His most memorable scene was the fight with Yoo Jung which made him very sad because their friendship became bad.

Unlike Yoo Jung whom is a very charming person; someone who can make girls feel nervous and flustered, In-Ho is someone who would secretly care for someone; he doesn’t show it on the surface but deep down he really cares for Hong Seol. It was this point that attracted him to In-Ho’s role.

Kang Joon has not decided on what his next project is going to be and is still looking for good opportunities. He does not want to limit himself to the types of character he will play as he would like to try on a lot of different roles. A lot of people suggested for him to play the vampire but he wants to act more in school related dramas. But fans will be able to see him through the screen on Law of the Jungle, where he has just guested on with AOA’s Seolhyun. He will also be travelling around Asia to meet his fans!

When given the question of what he would have done to win a girl he has a one-sided love with, like In Ho has on Hong Seol, he answered that at the moment, In-Ho doesn’t really want to occupy or own Hong Seol for himself. So he don’t think In-Ho’s intention is for Yoo Jung and Hong Seol to break up. In-Ho secretly wishes them happiness and if he in real life will do the same, by wishing her to be happy.

IMG_7159

Co-actor Hae Jin is about 10 years older than KangJoon; he is 34 years old. Hae Jin did have concerns about their age differences since both characters are of the same age in the drama. But Kang Joon feels that he is actually much more matured for his age, so he did not really worry much about their age difference at all. In Ho’s swearing kind of brought them closer, so they’re really good friends now.

IMG_7517

On what he would want to say to those who have not watched the drama yet:

“The drama will give audiences a flustered feeling; like having butterflies in your stomach and leave audiences in great anticipation. Furthermore, it showcases the campus life in Korea University so students in Korea could relate to that. The elements of friendship and conflicts would entice the public to watch it.”
