Korean actor Ji Sung confessed his love to actor Ji Jin-hee, his co-star in SBS’ upcoming historical drama.
During “The Great Seer” [tentative title] press conference held at SBS’ hall in Seoul on September 26, the "All in" heartthrob made reporters laugh by jokingly talking about the Ji Jin-hee's absorbing acting skills.
“When first taking part in the shooting with Ji Jin-hee, I felt like falling in love with him, because eyes are so clear and bright when acting. I realized this kind of feeling was what Mok Ji-sang’s [played by Ji Sung] feels toward Yi Seong-gye [played by Ji Jin-hee],” Ji Sung said with a smile.
Ji Sung added that he and his co-star had a talked a lot to analyze the characters by looking into each other's eyes.
Ji also gave some hint on his character Mok, saying, "It was hard to figure out how to act out my character, a fortune teller. Later, I determined to make my acting so open and real, not just to show off my acting skills but to portray my character naturally. That is why I didn't read the whole scenario yet."
Helmed by director Lee Yong-seok of "Iljimae" (SBS, 2008), the historical drama is set in the transition period from the Goryeo Dynasty to the Joseon Dynasty, established by King Yi Seong-gye who got much help from fortune teller Mok Ji-sang.
The historical series, co-starring actors Song Chang-eui, Cho Min-ki, actresses Kim So-yeon, Lee Yoon-ji, and Lee Seung-yeon, will kick off its run as the follow-up to “For You in Full Blossoms” on October 10.
