Fresh off the heels of the highly popular Business Proposal, Ahn Hyo Seop conveys his thoughts about his latest work through a Q&A released to the media people.
His busy schedule vouches for his current fame as one of the most sought-after actors of his generation. From Doctor Romantic 2, Still 17 and Lovers of the Red Sky, there’s no stopping the diligent actor from carving his prominence as an artist.
For his latest role, Ahn portrayed the role of Kang Tae-mu in Business Proposal. Suiting up to the role of a third-generation chaebol, he gained much love from the viewers.
Impressively, his love pairing with Kim Sejeong also generated buzz from domestic and global viewers.
Grateful for the love and support received after the drama’s conclusion, he relays how the enjoyable script and pleasant interaction with the production and fellow actors made the filming a happy experience.
On Portraying Kang Tae-mu
Looking back, Ahn Hyo Seop revealed not overthinking played well when he decided to play the role of Kang Tae-mu.
“I fell in love with the character for a short time and read it without any worries. That reason alone was enough. I wanted to be in these fun situations with Kang Tae-mu, and I also wanted to challenge myself with comedy.”
Acknowledging Kang Tae-mu appears to be an unrealistic character, his homework at that time was to work on bringing up the realistic side of Tae-mu. Along with that, he also emphasized Tae-mu’s distinct voice tone.
“I acted with the belief that if the viewers gradually became accustomed to Tae-mu’s tone of voice, his colorful charms would stand out better. I think the most important thing was that I believed in Kang Tae-mu and I believed in myself.”
