Kang Ha Neul was in Singapore last week to promote “Scarlet Heart: Goryeo” and spoke candidly about his role in the drama.
The 26 year old was very frank in saying that he is “very ordinary” compared to the prince he portrays i the remake. Kang said “He has this ‘elite, princely image’ and doesn’t smile very much, whereas I’m just a very ordinary person, like the boy-next-door. I think you might get shocked at the differences if you really get to know me.” He continued “The image that you see on the drama is very different from how I am like in real life. I wasn’t really that good in my studies like he is.”
When asked which of his cast-mates was the most like a prince in real life, Kang immediately pointed out the drama’s main lead, Lee Joon Ki, saying “Other than his good looks, he is already a big star with the most experience among all of us. Even on set, the cast and crew were very well taken care of by his fans, who prepared food and drinks for us. So naturally, all of us refer to him as the prince.”
“Scarlet Heart” has barely premiered and already has a huge fan following, Aside, from all the critics, the drama is breaking records and is slated to do well in the future. I am happy to see some positive coverage related to the drama.
