Updated with my translation of interview (1st January 2015).
Apologies should there be any errors as it’s based on my understanding of the content.
Interview in which Sang Hyun talks about filming of the movie ‘Deoksuri’ and marriage.
Some of the content is similar to previous interviews.
Regarding the movie, Sang Hyun feels that Song Sae Byeog’s scenes had the most laughs while his role of Su Kyo as an emotionally suppressed character was not as much fun to do. So it was rather frustrating during the initial shooting. And because he could not joke during shooting, he was chatting more to the others as compared to other shooting sets.
Surprisingly in spite of this, it took him a while to get to know and get close to the others and it wasn’t what it seems as his intense shyness. He cannot drink and does not like drinking, so it took him a while to get to know the others. While Chan Seong, Kwang Su and Sae Byeog were eating on set, he would be sleeping. Everyone could recover quickly after drinking but he could not do that as he would get a hangover.
In response to the reporter’s remark about him having confidence in comedy acting, Sang Hyun said he knew that he was fond of comedy acting after taking on the filming of Gapdong. He had found it very tough during filming of the latter. It was really difficult to shoot with the depressing and heavy feelings for over 4 months. The feelings did not decrease after every emotional scene and it was tough even after shooting. It took some time to be rid of them.
Sang Hyun laughed when the talk turned to marriage and the reporter commented that his heart could be seen emerging just from his eyes. For him, the feeling is akin to when he was a kid and the day before a school trip or picnic, he would be restless and unable to sleep. He’s very excited and looking forward to spending a lifetime together with his friend and there are numerous thoughts in his mind.
In response to the remark that people who are playful can become different and serious once they decided to get married, Sang Hyun says that it seems like people become truly grownup when someone they are going to live with for the rest of their lives appears, and the thought itself of working alone is completely different. So one’s personality will change a little because being a husband and having to take on a family role, somehow one becomes serious. It’s not just his own thinking but the idea can deepen further when the thought is on putting first priority on home. He added that the reporter was right to say that ‘marriage makes a true grownup’ and laughed as he said that it would be sad if being bright, cheerful and funny would gradually disappear.
As to how the concert wedding concept came about, SH said that both of them had never done a concert before so the idea of a wedding concert occurred to them. They did not want a wedding which is in a similar form as the others. It would be great to have a wedding that could remain in memory for a long time, a wedding that belongs to just the 2 of them.
Fortunately the parents were fine with it so they could proceed. It would likely have the atmosphere of a dinner show with him and the bride singing trot. He was thinking of a fun and charming wedding. He laughed as he said there would be no emcee as the bride and groom will receive total attention.
