“This setting is actor’s idea?”…Characters created by famous actors themselves
It is the writer who creates the character, but it is the actor’s job to complete the character.
The three characters, a genius musician-turned-lawyer (Cho Seung Woo), a casino king (Choi Min Sik) and a lovely banchan shop owner (Jeon Do Yeon), were completed with the settings suggested by actors.
By adding actors’ interpretations and ideas to writers’ scenarios, characters fit dramas and actors themselves.
According to the broadcasting industry on March 26th, Shin Sung Han, the main character of JTBC’s drama “Divorce Attorney Shin”, was reborn as a completely different character from the original after meeting Cho Seung Woo.
In the original webtoon of the same name, Shin Sung Han always wears a neat suit, has a knitted brow and gives off a cool-headed image. On the other hand, Shin Sung Han, played by Cho Seung Woo, is much more free-spirited and eccentric.
Cha Mu Sik, the main character of Disney+’s original series “Big Bet”, is also a character that actively reflects the actor’s ideas.
In an interview with the media, Choi Min Sik explained, “Cha Mu Sik thinks he’s a businessman in his own way, so I put on the setting that he’ll restrain his emotions as much as possible when making transactions.”
Nam Haeng Seon, the main character of the drama “Crash Course in Romance”, was also expressed differently from the first synopsis through Jeon Do Yeon’s interpretations.
Jeon Do Yeon said, “(The writer) originally wanted me to express the tension much higher, but that was burdensome, and I thought it was impossible to play someone completely different from me. I strongly asked (the writer) to change it.”
