‘High School King’ star assesses his character’s virtues
The show, which currently airs Monday to Tuesday, traces the life of a varsity ice hockey player who is one day forced to join a circle of high-ranking executives at his father’s company by impersonating his older brother, who is nine years his senior.
“When I first read the script, I couldn’t figure out the exact intention behind the character,” Seo said. “However, now, I think that showing viewers Min-seok’s way of handling embarrassing or uncomfortable moments at work - which is not being afraid to face problems directly without giving excuses - was his purpose.”
When asked about the chemistry with his on-screen love interest Soo-young, played by actress Lee Ha-na, Seo answered that it feels “natural” to act with her.
“Even when the camera is off, we treat each other as if we are still in character,” he added.
