Then he chose to come back with "A Melody to Remember" which is also his first top role. The movie is based on a real children's choir from the Korean War and about a small song which brought miracles in a time of hopeless war. In "A Melody to Remember", Im Si-wan is Han Sang-ryeol, a solder with a stick and not a gun.
Im Si-wan said, "When I first saw the script, I pictured children singing and going around to perform as a choir. That's what made me do it".
Im Si-wan mentioned the word 'responsibility' the most and talked about the pressure he felt and how careful he is about it.
"I've been in a highly successful movie and drama so I am happy to have even experienced them. I am always grateful to those who anticipate me. I should say that I was chosen for the movie and not that I chose it. I am lucky to have been".
He became more sincere about acting as experience as an actor builds up.
"Unlike what I initially thought about acting, it's not just about doing what they tell you to do but to continuously study it. So I read my script over and over again and draw the scene in my head so that my sincerity can reflect on it".
"It would have been so awkward if I pretended to play when I actually can't. Han Sang-ryeol is a good piano player but I am not so much. I had to practice. It was tiring but that's how I AM."
Looking back on his shortcomings, he didn't forget to ask himself continuously what 'a good actor' is. That's where 'responsibility' comes in once again.
"If I go over my shortcomings, I need to know what a 'good actor' is. I try to express the real thing. I wonder when my seniors act, do they express the really real thing or are they expressing something fake as if it's real? It doesn't matter as long as it looks "Real". I need to be responsible for that. So I try to focus on the real thing".
He doesn't want to lose acting nor singing. He started off as a singer and is noticed more as an actor but he doesn't want to let go of singing. The song in "A Melody to Remember" was his idea.
"I like singing and I like acting but I'm not a good dancer. To compare, my singing isn't as good as my acting. That doesn't mean I act well, but I just think I don't sing as well as I act. Singing is a private greed of mine and I am working on a song that I started after "Incomplete Life". I decided to write a song every time I am done with a drama or movie and write about the emotions I felt. Luckily the path I chose and the path the public is directing me to isn't very different".
Im Si-wan is an acting idol. "There are so many good idols who can act. I am happy to be one of them".
He strengthened his determination to take himself seriously. "I can do what I do because I am chosen by the public. If I have too much fun now, then I won't be chosen in the future. So I look at myself objectively".
Im Si-wan is on his way to becoming a real actor, step by step.
