Go Kyung Pyo explained what he focused on while transforming into a psychopath.
On December 1st, the Disney Content Showcase 2022 was held at the main event hall of Marina Bay Sands (MBS) Convention Center in Singapore. On this day, the press conference for the K-drama “Connect” was held for all APAC media. The event was attended by actors Jung Hae In, Go Kyung Pyo, Kim Hye Joon and director Miike Takashi.
Go Kyung Pyo, who plays a psychopath in “Connect”, said, “I tried to show a different side of myself from my previous roles, so I wanted to differentiate the way I express myself. It’s the first time I’ve expressed such a character, so I think you’ll see it in a new way. The atmosphere of the drama is also a new genre, so it will be very interesting. I hope you will enjoy watching it.”
In response, director Miike Takashi said, “When you think of a psychopath, you usually think of a cold-hearted person with no expression and a skinny body. However, Go Kyung Pyo transformed into a slightly chubby and cute psychopath. So, I remember looking at his neck every morning to see how much weight he had gained. I thought he was so cute. He is an actor who would laugh and chat on set, but when filming starts, he is fully immersed into the character. He is a very lovable presence.”
“Connect”, which will be released through Disney+ on December 7th, is about a new human race with an immortal body, called “Connect”. Dong Soo (Jung Hae In), who is part of this race, is kidnapped by an organ trafficking organization. His eyes were taken by the organization and then transplanted into a serial killer. The drama follows Dong Soo as he tracks down the serial killer.
