Q. What are your thoughts after finishing the drama?


"I'm thankful for receiving so much love. Including the audition, it's been 11 months. It's a shame to let it go. Although there are people who were shocked with my character's ending, I think it was a fitting ending and I am satisfied with the director's decision. I think that we must not glamorize criminals. I was aware that Haerongie will take drugs again as soon as he gets released. At first, I was really surprised. I thought, 'Did he just do drugs again?'. Although Haerongie was portrayed cutely, I think that his acts of taking drugs should not be glamorized. In reality, they say that a first offender becomes a second offender and later on becomes a habitual offender.  I see it as an appropriate ending."


Q. How did you join [the cast]?


"In the fall and winter of last year (2016), I performed in the play 'Come See Me' and musical 'Fan Letter'. I must have good luck because Director Shin Won-ho watched them one after the other. In 'Come See Me', I was a suspect and there was a scene of me completely drunk and causing a ruckus at the police station. I think they saw Haerongie in that image of me. I got a call for an audition while filming 'Forest of Secrets'. We met twice and I joined after that. It was in March."


Q. How did it feel?


"It was amazing. I thought it was someone else's story. A famous director went to watch a play and cast an actor from it. I didn't think it was my story. 'Director Shin Won-ho knew about me?' I was grateful and amazed."


Q. Haerongie was a difficult character [to act]. You must have had a lot of things to prepare.


'During the first audition, I was asked to show them my acting from 'Come See Me'. I did it lightly. I was told to do more. I did and they told me to keep going until the end. I gave it my all. (smiles) At that time, they asked me to do it cutely. I thought what did it mean for a drug addict to be cute. I did it [cutely] and the production team liked it. I didn't hear from them for three weeks and I heard stories about the audition from people around me. I did a second audition and about five minutes after that, they said 'Let's do this together'. I was deeply moved I almost cried. (smiles)"


Q. Why do you think you got cast?


"They said that I have a signature tone that comes out when I act drunk. Something like 'Hngg?'. (smiles) I was told that when Director Shin Won-ho and Writer Lee Woo-jung watched that scene, they burst out laughing by themselves. They might have thought I fit the role Haerongie well in that area."


Q. How did you create the way of talking that's overflowing with cuteness?


"I didn't have a model for it. I associated it with a cat. I used to raise a cat before so I knew how it was. While actors learned how to act, I imitated animals a lot. I expressed some of Haerongie's parts like an angry cat. It was like that during scenes where I growled."


Q. Did you know that Haerongie will receive this much love?


"I didn't expect it. Honestly, I thought a unique character would come out. He's a drug user and is gay. He becomes normal when he takes drugs and when he doesn't, he acts silly and crazy. That's unique. However, I didn't think I would receive this much love."


Q. How was Director Shin Won-ho's way of directing? What was his specialty?


"He doesn't only think one way and is not oppressive. It was astonishing. Jung Woong-in sunbae has done a lot of projects but even he said that he was surprised with Director Shin Won-ho. It wasn't just a mask. He's honestly a good person. Whether it's an actor, staff, or a minor role, he doesn't say bad things to them and lets them to act comfortably."


Q. Haerongie's scenes causes a lot of laughter. Any scenes that come to mind?


"The scene with Munrae-dong KAIST where we were fighting using pepper and liquid pain reliever was fun. I remember when I called him 'roasted mackerel' and I got knee kicked. Fighting childishly with Captain Yoo was also fun. Another memorable one was the kiss scene with Ji-won. (smiles)"


Q. How is your personality in real life? Do you also have a cute side like Haerongie?


"Not really. I think the reason why Haerongie became cute like that is because I like the hyungs. It's rather harder for me to be with the younger cast. Choi Moo-sung Sunbae, Ho-san Hyung, Hae-soo Hyung... They are seniors whom I've always known so I was able to be comfortable with them. My personality is... a bit reserved? There are times when people get frustrated with me. (smiles) Even so, I become a fun person when I'm with my friends."


Q. What's your ordinary day like?


"I stay at home and I like watching movies on my days off. (On relationships) I don't have a girlfriend. I hope to find someone soon. It's not easy.”


Q. You've been acting for a long time. Do you feel like it was all in vain after shooting into stardom with one project?


"No. I thought that the power of dramas is great. Even meeting with lots of reporters like this for an interview is something that I couldn't even think of before. A lot of things have changed since two months ago. I was surprised."


It will be continued in part 2 of the interview.

"It feels rewarding when I'm able to have a good influence to society by using the best of my abilities."

-omitted-

He was asked to tell a story of when he felt his popularity.

"During the middle to last part of our filming, we've gone to Hannam-dong for some drinks. There are times when people pay our bills and just disappear. They must have felt bad because we're prisoners. (smiles) An employee suddenly gives us a few bottles of beer and says, "Those people ordered it for you" or they would greet and say "We're enjoying the drama". One time, (Park)Hae-soo Hyung and I were having meat and soju when the ahjusshi from the table beside us asked for a picture saying his daughter is a big fan. I'm the type of person who doesn't take pictures when I'm drinking but he said 'My daughter has a disability but she's very happy when she watches your drama', we were touched and took a picture right away. When we were about to leave later on, we were told that they already paid our bill. It must have been expensive though."


Haerongie is a unique character who's been called 'cute drug addict'. Haerongie's cute gestures, way of speaking, and expressions were inspired from a cat. "It's a different tone from [my] usual tone. It's not a lisp. Once I got it set up, it wasn't that hard. I had more things to concentrate on than other actors. Depending on the effect of the drugs that comes and goes, I have to adjust it. It changes a number of times in a day so I worried a lot about how I'm going to connect them together. Even Director Shin Won-ho said 'I'm sorry' and ran away although I haven't read the script of the next episode yet. When I asked him why, he said, 'It's going to be hard to act."

Director Shin Won-ho who directed the 'Reply' Series is known for being firm with actors starting from script reading. However, while filming 'Prison Playbook' he said, "Because there's room to make and express the characters, I didn't get involved."

"We see each other on set with complete images. When there's a difference in interpretations, we talk about it thoroughly and film but other than that, the characters and emoting within angles are completely up to the actor. I was surprised when I saw (Kang)Seung-yoon and (Jung)Su-jeong's acting. When I saw Seung-yoon acting, I thought 'He's not an actor by trade and have not acted before but he's good'. Su-jeong matches well with her character. It seems that agencies are all doing acting training nowadays."

To the extent of calling it 'Shin Won-ho Magic', a majority of actors who have appeared in Director Shin Won-ho's dramas have said that they have found their 'life's character/role'. We asked if there's something special about Director Shin Won-ho.

"Usually, the writer, director, and editor are different people but with Director Shin Won-ho and Writer Lee Woo-jung, they do the preliminary and on-site inspections and even the prison interviews by themselves. When they film, they know well what makes a scene funny or what kind of angle to capture. They even edit in the editing car beside the set without sleeping. Who else can do that?"


Haerongie (acted by Lee Kyuhyung) is an immature son of a rich household, a habitual drug user, and is in the sexual minority. Despite these shocking set-up, he received a lot of love from the viewers. Because of Haerongie's personality that says whatever he wants, he gets knee kicked by Munrae-dong or he fights with Captain Yoo like they were kindergartners. That's how he naturally showed off bromance chemistry with the 2B Room 6 inmates.

"[I/It] was really comfortable with (Jung)Hae-in. I love drinking and Hae-in also knows how to enjoy his liquor. He's innocent, nice, and have good acting sense. I work well with Hae-in so we got called Yoo-Yoo Couple but we match well in reality too.

Even so, the most crucial thing was the scene where Haerongie did drugs again right after he got released. The viewers who expected a pink-coloured (happy) ending for Haerongie were in total shock.

"I think the viewers will also think later on that 'it was right'. If it didn't end like that, I think we won't be able to show the dangers of drugs. If it ended with a drug addict who received love despite using drugs like that, [people] might think lightly of drugs. [He] needs to be shown suffering. These days, if you go studying abroad, it is said that you can easily encounter drugs. You can get addicted without thinking much of it saying since everyone does it, I might as well try it too. Because it's hard to end the addiction, it's showing that we should not even start using it. Dramas have great ripple effect. In that sense, I think it was a good ending."

We asked Lee Kyu-hyung to imagine the ending to Haerongie who got sent back to prison through a sting operation as soon as he got released.

"I wish that his mother who has a strong personality will use a large amount of funding to hire competent lawyers of Kim and Jang to file a lawsuit against the sting operation. The solution is not putting him in jail but for him to get proper treatment. Also, Ji-won will endure with him by his side. Sometimes, Je-hyuk Hyung will come to lend his knee. Min-chul-ssi will come and say 'I'll kill you if you do it again'. I wish it would be a happy ending where his fellow inmates will help him overcome it. Even I got annoyed at the sting operation when I read the script. Did a guy who endured so hard have to do that on the day he got released? It had to be done to raise the dramatic tension but since it's my imagination, I can think of it the way I want to. I would like to employ about a hundred lawyers. (smiles)"


Lee Kyu-hyung showed a positive response regarding a 'Season 2'.

"If they ask me, I'd come running. In my opinion, my story has already unfolded so it would be difficult to be the main character. Director Shin is the type who looks for new actors so it would be an honour [for me] to appear even as a cameo just like Sung Dong-il and Kim Sun-young sunbae-nim."

Lee Kyu-hyung who just finished 'Prison Playbook' is now looking at a variety of work. He's not only getting offers for roles similar to Haerongie's but he's also getting a lot of offers for new characters that can show a different side of him.

"I am appearing as a cameo in tvN's 'Everyone's Romance'. It's an ordinary man who likes someone, a role I've never done before until now. I'm reviewing dramas and movies right now but I haven't decided on anything yet. I'll decide on my next project first and if my schedule after that allows it, I would like to do [theatre] performances alongside it."

Lee Kyu-hyung started acting in Daehak-ro at age 25 and he's passionate of acting more than anyone else. He said that this is a time when he has to give back the love the public has given him. What kind of actor does he dream of becoming?

"An actor you can trust to watch. Since I'm given the opportunity to act, I want to show the images of me that I have yet to show to many people. People who watch 'Prison Playbook' say 'Making a living is hard but I only wait for Wednesdays and Thursdays' and 'Because of Haerongie, I got to laugh to my heart's content'. When I see such response, when people get to relieve their stress while watching me act,  I think that I have achieved my goal as an actor to an extent. It's also an honour to be given a role like in 'Forest of Secrets' that reminds people of their social consciousness. In that sense, I think I would feel rewarded when I'm able to have a good influence to society by using the best of my abilities."

[ENG SUB] I Can See Your Voice Season 2 Episode 13 (Guest: Yoon Jongshin)

Whoa. Goodness me. How long has it been? A year? I wonder if you are still waiting for an update. Sorry. So a bit of story time, remember ...

Whoa. Goodness me. How long has it been? A year? I wonder if you are still waiting for an update. Sorry.

So a bit of story time, remember how I finally got a job in January? I've been busy ever since. I tried to do some subbing in between but I was just too tired to go on. In the summer, I had a bit of time but the will to do subtitles was not there. I tried to do a bit of a sideline with fishingsubteam (awesome people, by the way) and that helped me want to sub again. However, September came and I got promoted to Supervisor at my job. Woohoo! Got even busier.

Finally, I got a week off this holiday! And finally, I am uploading a new episode! As you might have noticed, it's not the episode that's supposed to be out next. I thought I should sub an episode that I really, really like so that the task won't be too forceful to my unmotivated brain. Episode 13 with Yoon Jongshin is exactly that.

Not a lot of the new generation of fans know about Yoon Jongshin as a singer/songwriter but he has an amazing list of songs! I hope that this episode will become a beginning of your discovery of Yoon Jongshin. The songs are awesome and the lyrics are from the heart. They tell a story (which we don't get a lot anymore these days). So yeah, I hope you enjoy this episode!

A few more recommendations: Kyuhyun's Late Autumn and Blah Blah, Jung In's Uphill, Sung Shikyung's On That Road, Yoon Jongshin's From January to June and Exhausted (feat. Kim Feel and Kwak Jineon). All written and composed by Yoon Jongshin. :)

I don't know when I will be able to upload another episode. I think I'll be working the whole year next year again. Still, I hope everyone will have an awesome new year filled with happiness and love!

tl;dr: I was busy and couldn't sub. I chose this episode because I personally like it. I don't know when I will be able to update next. Happy New Year!
