Learning English By Lee Jun Ki Interview
Hello. I'm Lee Jun Ki and I play Gong-kil in the King and the Clown.
I'm so thankful. It feels strange to become popular all of a sudden.
It's a little scary but I'm very thankful to you all.
When all you fans start cheering,it touches my heart.
I thank you all.
【The Hotel Venus-2005】
I played a character called Boy.
The movie is about different hotel guests in 8 hotel rooms who are dealing with different problems.
My character stays at room4.
Boy is a young impressionable kid who acts tough to hide his pain.
The movie revolves around a few fantastic events that happen to a bunch of high school students after they take the college entrance exam.
My character is Jang Dong-hwan and my two other on-screen friends are Yoon Gye-sang and Ohn ju-hwan.
I had a fun time shooting the film.
I was 21 at the time I shot the movie so it was only a few years after had graduated from high school.
I reflected on my high school days during filming.
It's a great coming-of- age movie.
【The King and The Clown】
The movie is about Jang-Saeng and Gong-kil,who were the best palace clowns in the Joseon Dynasty.
Gong-kil is a young man who became the first palace clown in Joseon Dynasty's history and has a feminine- like appearance.
He has a warm,tender heart and many talents as a clown.
When we were about to begine shooting the film,I lost a lot of sleep worring about how well I could play my character.
I worried about a affecting the quality of the movie.
I assimilated myself to the personality of my character.
I talked less and stayed in character even between shoots.
I took lessons from experts on how to do clown tricks and walk like a woman.
It is an honor whenever people call me an actor but I want to be known as a hard-warking and dedicated actor.
To all the viewers of Screen Flash on Arirang TV and to all the fans of King and the Clown,I hope that all your dreams will come true in the new year.
I hope to return with more memorable movies.
Thank you for your supposrt.
I will try hard to become a better actor.
