Shin Hyun-joon criticizes those who refused "Bridal Mask"

2012/05/24 | Permalink | Source

Criticizes those actors who refused the role because of Japanese background.

Actor Shin Hyun-joon said what he had to say to those Hallyu stars who refused to star in the drama "Bridal Mask" because it is based in the occupation period of the Japanese.

At the press premier of the drama in Seoul on the 23rd, he voiced out his opinion that actors should think about acting first and not international matters when producer Yoon Seong-sik mentioned that he had a hard time finding the cast for this drama for its background.

Joo Won, who plays the role of Lee Kang-to said, "I have never once thought this would cause a problem. I didn't understand why other actors didn't want this role. I only thought about expanding my experience". Shin Hyun-joon who takes on the role of Lee Kang-to's brother Lee Kang-san, said, "I was surprised when I heard that some people don't star in Japan related movies because they are afraid they won't be as popular anymore in Japan. Actors should be selfish in acting. How can you call yourself what you are when you don't act? I think Joo Won is amazing for this choice".
