On the radio, Lee Sun Bin boasted about her real-life chemistry with Jung Eun Ji and Han Sun Hwa. She said, “Both of them understand me well.

We planned to gather for a short while but ended up talking until dawn.”

The actress continued, “Eun Ji unnie is a good listener. When we talk, she understands us well and often gives useful comments”, adding “Sun Hwa unnie has a great sense. She suddenly added ad-libs at unexpected times”, showing affection for her two co-stars.

Regarding Season 2, Lee Sun Bin said, “We began filming in June, which is the hottest month in a year. It also rained a lot this summer. The shooting didn’t go well in the beginning”, adding “I’ll say this because the teaser was already released. We shot many scenes in mountainous regions. We traveled to so many places that I can’t tell which provinces I haven’t been to.”

Unlike her character in “Work Later, Drink Now”, Lee Sun Bin actually can’t drink alcohol. The actress said, “When I was young, I wanted to be an idol so I worked very hard. Then I became a freelance model and have been working nonstop”, adding “I didn’t have time to learn how to drink alcohol from anyone. My family members also don’t drink”.  

She then confessed, “Since I started working without going to college, I’ve never learned the drinking culture like other students”, adding “I can’t drink Americano either because of its bitter taste.”

Lee Sun Bin shared, “Alcohol is also a little bitter for me. I prefer drinking fruit-flavored beers like a kind of soft drink while eating”. She added, “I act the same way even when I don’t drink. Sometimes people think I’m already drunk because of my high tension.”

DJ Navi then asked, “Then how can you act out the expression of getting drunk so well?”, Lee Sun Bin said, “As I don’t drink, I observe others. I observed how people behave when they got drunk, such as crying. That experience helped me act comfortably.”

Regarding her Jeolla-do dialect when playing Ahn So Hee, Lee Sun Bin, who is from Cheonan, Chungnam-do, said, “Jeolla-do dialect was really difficult, but I had lots of friends who are from Jeolla-do regions”, adding “I actually think it is easier than Busan dialect. Many people told me that it is easier for Chungnam people to copy Jeolla-do dialect than those from other regions.”

TVing’s original drama “Work Later, Drink Now 2”, which will premiere on December 9th, depicts the daily stories of three women whose belief in life is one drink at the end of the day.
