After Dream High, The Moon embraced the Sun and The Thieves, this is the first time Kim Soo Hyun (KSH) took the lead in movie Secretly Greatly, which set new records in the Korean movie history and created a sensation. The representative television actor who has gained acknowledgement from everyone is 26 year old Kim Soo Hyun. Setting aside personal motives, I met up with him. This is my first time, and perhaps even my last chance. At this very moment, I want to grab hold of him without hesitation, and understand everything about him.
1. Secretly Greatly is about to air. How do you feel?
A: I’m curious, and look forward to the audience’s reviews of the movie.
2. The 3 scenes not to be missed in Secretly Greatly?
A: The scene where Ryu-hwan (KSH), Hae-rang, Hae-jin and the villagers were eating chicken happily. After knowing the suicide mission, the scene where Ryu-hwan and Hae-jin talked about finding a way together. In the later half of the movie, the one-to-one fighting scenes between Ryu-hwan and Tae-won (Son Hyun-joo).
3. To KSH, what kind of works are Dream High, The Moon embraced the Sun, The Thieves and Secretly Greatly?
A: Challenge.
