Revealing his debut story, he said, “I listened to my parents’ words and went to the college they suggested but it didn’t suit me”, adding “Later, I found it fun taking pictures. I wanted to stand in front of the camera so I moved from Miryang to Seoul.”

Expressing his thoughts, Jung Ga Ram said, “Since it was my first acting project after fulfilling military service, I was more greedy. It’s my comeback work, but also a fresh start. I’ve been gathering lots of energy while training in the army, so I wanted to show the viewers that I’ve returned with a better appearance.”

The actor continued, “You may think it’s a sad character similar to my previous one. However, ‘The Interest of Love’ is more realistic so I could feel many things from it”. When asked about his dating style, Jung Ga Ram said, “I think I’m more like Jong Hyun at the beginning of the drama. His changed image in the second half is definitely not my style. It woud be a big problem”, drawing laughter.
