First of all, Lee Jong-suk explained the reason why he chose the work, saying, “I had so much trust and friendship with director Oh Choong-hwan that I wanted to have fun working with him as I did in the past.” He added, “The irony of an ordinary lawyer being suspected of being a genius fraud was very interesting,” adding, “I thought I could show a new side through Park Chang-ho who goes back and forth between good and evil to survive.”

Regarding the first impression of the character Park Chang-ho, who was falsely accused, Lee Jong-suk said he felt sorry for Park Chang-ho, who became a genius fraudster overnight and was suffering from having to go to prison.

In addition, he replied that his view of Park Chang-ho has changed since he finished filming. “Now, when I see Park Chang-ho, I think he’s a very strong character rather than a normal character. I hope viewers will check what this strength means through the broadcast,” he explained, raising interest in this character.

In addition, Lee Jong-suk said, “Lawyer Park Chang-ho and genius fraudster Park Chang-ho are the same person, but they have different goals and feelings.” “I tried to act out the emotions that fit each person’s situation,” he confessed.

Finally, Lee Jong-suk said, “Big Mouth has a complex mix of characters. I want you to pay attention to what the real intentions of these characters are and what kind of bare faces are hidden behind the turbulent events,” he said. “Since it’s a powerful story, you’ll be able to watch every episode.”

MBC’s new Friday-Saturday drama “Big Mouth,” which will feature actor Lee Jong-suk’s intense acting transformation, will air at 9:50 p.m. on July 29th.
