Actor Kim Seon-ho’s interview related to “Hometown Cha Cha Cha” was released.
Men’s magazine Arena Homme+ published Kim Seon-ho‘s pictorial and interview on the official website on Oct 23rd. This is a schedule that took place before the controversy over Kim Seon-ho’s personal life as well as the only interview of the drama “Hometown Cha Cha Cha“, which attracts more attention. The magazine explained, “We met Kim Seon-ho in Seoul on the day after he finished the last scene of ‘Hometown Cha Cha Cha’.”
In the interview, Kim Seon-ho expressed his thoughts on receiving a response from viewers for his role Hong Doo-sik as “harmless man”. When asked, “‘Harmless man’ is a compliment, but are you worried that it will be a frame for an actor?”, Kim Seon-ho replied, “That’s right. Doesn’t every actor have such a concern? All the actors are framed in some way. While they challenge another type of acting, this frame is removed and a new frame is put on them. I don’t hate frames or think negatively. I’ll appreciate it if you like my current role, and I’ll try other roles next time.”
About receiving a lot of love for his kind-hearted roles following Han Ji-pyeong in ‘Start-Up’, he said, “There were times when I felt good, but I never felt burdened or arrogant. I was worried that I might not be able to do my part in the drama. It was a burden that I couldn’t do what I had to do. I was evaluated and got hurt while acting in Daehak-ro. I thought about it for a long time. When I thought about it, it was a mental battle as well as the difference in how to accept the evaluation. It has already been over 10 years. Now I’m very grateful for the evaluation itself.”
In addition, Kim Seon-ho talked about his recent situation, “Thankfully, I’m living a busy life. I just finished filming ‘Hometown Cha Cha Cha’ yesterday. I was busy with this drama, but I think I’ll be busy again soon.” However, Kim Seon-ho is currently on hiatus from entertainment activities due to the controversy over his private life. He dropped out of KBS 2TV‘s “2 Days 1 Night” along with the movies such as “2 O’Clock Date”, “Dog Days”…
