“Black Knight” Song Seong Heon, “Kim Woo Bin is a perfect man without flaws. I thought he was just pretending to be nice at first”

Actor Song Seung Heon talked about Kim Woo Bin’s personality and his first sci-fi OTT drama challenge.

Song Seung Heon, who recently appeared in Netflix’s new series “Black Knight” by director Cho Ui Seok, had a video interview on the morning of May 18th. He plays the role of Ryu Seok, the only heir to the Cheonmyeong Group.


Song Seung Heon and Kim Woo Bin met each other for the first time through “Black Knight”. Regarding his impression of Kim Woo Bin, Song Seung Heon said, “I heard many people saying good things about his personality and politeness”, adding “He’s too perfect. He’s a person without flaws.”

The actor exclaimed, “It is not easy to hear people around saying good things about you, even if you are not an actor. When I met him on the set, he looked very manly and naturally cool. He’s so sincere, upright, and nice to the point that I even questioned ‘Is he pretending?’. Consistently seeing him being so perfect makes me wonder if there is anything he lacks”.

Song Seung Heon challenged a six-episode OTT series for the first time in his career. In this regard, he said, “Although the series is quite short, it is speedy enough and filled with impactful content. I believe that the way people choose and watch dramas have changed a lot. Some stories are well expressed as movies but there are brilliant works that unfold over 16 episodes. Each format actually has its own pros and cons”, revealing his feelings about taking on a new challenge.


Revealing that he doesn’t often watch sci-fis, Song Seung Heon shared, “I used to have vague thoughts, like ‘What if I came out in a sci-fi work?’. I encountered a good opportunity this time”, adding “I think it’s my first time acting in a drama set in a future world. I believed that it would be very interesting. As an actor, you need to be able to portray characters in the past, present, and future. It’s actually an advantage that you can experience different worlds.”

Celebrating the 28th year of his acting debut, Song Seung Heon also expressed his gratitude to fans. He confessed, “A fan who has followed me since she was young sent me a wedding invitation. I didn’t have any shoot that day so I ended up going to the wedding venue. When we met in the bride’s waiting room, we were both deeply moved”, adding “Every time I meet my long-time fans, I reflect on myself, give myself a push. They really become my driving force. I’m happy and thankful that we’re growing old together.”
