Actor Park Ki-woon has expressed his affection for the character in 'Rookie Historian Goo Hae-ryung.'
A press conference for MBC's new Wednesday-Thursday drama 'Rookie Historian Goo Hae-ryung' was held at MBC's Golden Mouth hall, Sangam-dong, Mapo-gu, Seoul on the afternoon of the 17th. Producer Kang Il-su, Actors Shin Se-kyung, Cha Eunwoo, Park Ki-woong, Lee Jihoon, and Park Jihyun attended the event.
'Rookie Historian Goo Hae-ryung' depicts the romantic story between Goo Hae-ryung who is the first problematic female historian and Yi Rim (played by Cha Eun-woo), a prince with unexpected a charm who has been single since birth.
In the drama, Park Ki-woong plays the crown prince, Yi Jin, who has the bravery of a general and is the first in line to the throne. He is the sad figure inside his heart, who, leads the country instead of the king but also is doing the power games with his courtiers. His only joy is his brother, Yi Rim so his bromance with Cha Eunwoo is attracting attention.
On this day, Park Ki-woong talked about his feelings about starring in a historical drama after a long time. “I wanted to do it. Humans are cunning because I sometimes want to play in a historical drama but I also want to play in a modern drama. But it was really good timing to be offered this role.”
Also, he said "It's my first time to take an important character who can express his opinion. So I say the things that this drama wants to deliver as a message. I am trying not to overlook such things."
Park Ki-woong was praised as a villain in SBS' drama 'Return.' Regarding the villain image, he said "If I take the role of a villain, the winning rate is 100%. Every work was successful. I know that my vibe is filled with the image of a villain. But other than that, I wanted to play a monarch who can say what's right. I've always thought 'I should do it like this' in my head. I am acting the character that I've been dreaming of doing," showing his affection.
Meanwhile, MBC's new Wednesday-Thursday drama 'Rookie Historian Goo Hae-ryung' will premiere at 8:55 PM on the 17th.
