Joo Won "I got over my emotions and became a real actor"

2011/11/16 | 2421 views | Permalink | Source

Joo Won (24) has been busy for the past 2 years. After last year's drama "Bread, Love and Dreams", he also shot the movies "SIU" and "Don't Click", and now he's in the KBS 2TV weekend drama "Ojak Brothers". All four of these projects weren't easy roles for a rookie. He deserves to be called 'the noticeable rookie'.

Having been in a drama that broke through 30% viewership, Joo Won is now coming back with the movie "SIU" on November 24th. Taking on the role of former FBI agent and current criminal psychologist Kim Ho-ryong, this is his first main role. "It's full of tension. It's an hour and fifty minutes long but it could feel like 30 minutes. I was engrossed in the American drama "Criminal Minds" when I got the script. I also have a lot of interest in psychology. I started off with the confidence that I will do well".

"SIU" is an action thriller that chases after the deep-rooted corruption in the police organization. Joo Won teams up with detective Uhm Tae-woong and solves this case. Amongst the rough and tough detectives, Joo Won is picked on for the reason that he is inexperienced and a young professor. This is almost like how it is working with seniors like Jung Jin-young, Sung Dong-il, Kim Jung-tae and more. "I was pressured by the fact that I must not be intimidated by them. I learnt a lot just by watching them as well. I didn't take my eyes off to note what Uhm Tae-woong had to say with the director before the shoot and how Jung Jin-young performed his role".

He doesn't forget the piece of advice Sung Dong-il gave him during the shooting of the movie. "He told me, "Express what you can at the age of twenty-four". He said there was no need to express something of a forty-year-old. I realized that people could see my greed for acting and when I let go of it, I felt much better".

He is very anxious about this movie. "It's weird to see my face on a big screen. I hope the audience feels it as much as I do".

With the release of the movie coming up, Joo Won is busy with "Ojak Brothers" all week. As his relationship with UEE in the drama gets deeper, the story is on a roll. "When the crew sees me they ask why I didn't bring UEE. I asked her to come to the VIP preview and if she does then I think they'll all love me" he laughed.
