Q1: Tell us how you feel about the 10th anniversary of the photo exhibition.
JKS: 10 years is really a long time. Actually to be able to do an event like this every year can’t be easy. And, in a way, this might be our promise to each other. “I wish to see more photos next year, more people to join next year”, we say “see you again next year”.
Thank you so much to all of you who always have been loyal to me. And to our fan club board members who have gone through hadrships working really hard every year, and also to our eels, really thank you so much.
When I come to this place I also can look back on the past year. So I think it’s very meaningful.
Q2: Is it something that Jang Keun Suk and Ku Do Han have in common?
JKS: In fact, the character Ku Do Han, who I encounter now while filming Chronicles of Crime, and Jang Keun Suk as a person have almost zero in common. There is really nothing that I can bring out. I have to take out a new human being who really does not exist in me. Actually it’s not that I take him out from me, I have to make him. That is why it’s not easy. It was not an easy choice, but I chose it in spite of it, because it’s a challenge for me as an actor. And I wanted to experience my limits. It’s really a very lonely role, a lonely script, a lonely role, a lonely character. I have wondered a lot how I should express it. I feel that the time when I think about it is a happy time. I feel joy filming it.
Q3: In the end, to Crij eels …
JKS: I always say this. The way I can give you back the love I receive from you is always the same. It’s by showing you a good work, a good role, a good performance. I want to be a person who is able to spread my energy continuously, without stopping. I think that is the way I will be able to keep your loyality. I know that you have been waited for a long time. On the other side, I felt lonely too during that waiting time. However I think that because of you, who kept enduring the waiting time togehter with me, I am able to be the person I am now.
To be honest, sometimes…. It’s not that I want to give up, hmm…I worry what that is I need now, what that is I have to do now. Deep worries, no rather than deep worries, it’s just..matters that I think about sufficiently as a man in his thirties. I have been deeply immersed in those thoughts. I remember thinking about that a lot when I was alone. However, the conclusion is always the same, don’t avoid difficult things, instaed enjoy difficult things more. The most important is to find the original me even if I sort of destroy myself while making something.
To you who have been waiting to see me acting for a really long time, I want to say thank you so much. The opportunity to pay you back has come, fortunately.
I feel very happy every day. Even though I am exhausted and it’s hard day after day, the life that I live now makes me feel that I am alive…Yes. I am not the only one who feels that. I will try to make a good work in order to pass on this feeling to you too. Cheer for me please.
