Kang Ha Neul confessed that he doesn’t see Kim So Eun as a girl because they are too close.During the July 3 broadcast of SBS Power FM’s Cinetown, DJ Gong Hyung Jin said, “Kim So Eun had to put on ghost makeup for The Girl’s Grave. Did people around you help you out?”

Kim So Eun said, “No, it wasn’t really like that,” and Kang Ha Neul shouted, “You can’t say it like that,” causing a round of laughter.

Back to school for Kang Ha-neul

Kang Ha-neul’s career path as an actor started on a high school stage. And with his success playing a teenager in recent dramas such as “The Heirs” (2013) and “Angel Eyes” (2014), the 24-year-old has taken up yet another role as a high schooler, this time as a movie lead.

In Oh In-chun’s new horror flick “Mourning Grave,” set to be released on July 3, Kang plays In-soo, who has the ability to see ghosts. As the story unravels, In-soo becomes fond of a ghost girl with amnesia, played by Kim So-eun.

“I don’t care about the size of my role,” Kang said to the JoongAng Ilbo, an affiliate of the Korea JoongAng Daily. “But due to the uplifting ambience of the shooting scene, I really have a special affection for this movie.” 

Q. Why did you choose this movie?

A. When I read the script, I saw a lot of similarities with Tomas Alfredson’s “Let the Right One In” [2008], which depicts the love between a vampire girl and a lonesome boy. I picked the movie out of a wish that a similar movie would be made in Korea, too. “Mourning Grave” is not a movie that is solely made to horrify viewers.

How did you approach the character?

I usually establish my character by savoring a lot of music, pictures and photos related to the movie. For In-soo’s character, I listened to haegeum player Jeong Soo-nyun’s instrumental piece “Beautiful Things in Life” repeatedly and also watched a lot of multicolored abstract images. 

I related to a scene from “Let the Right One In,” where there are spots of blood scattered on white snow. 

Are there any other works you related to that helped you play a character who is able to see ghosts?

Director Oh suggested Stephen Sommers’s “Odd Thomas” [2013], which shows evil spirits freely roaming about the neighborhood in broad daylight. 

I found it interesting that a horror movie was approached in such a delightful way.

How do you feel about the fact that a lot of your roles were high school boys?

I have worn school uniforms in nine of my works if you include musicals as well. Among them, the most special one was when I played a pure and an innocent boy in “Angel Eyes.” Before that, I used to play somewhat perfect and shrewd characters. In-soo, in the new movie, is far from being perfect as well. 

What kind of suggestions did the director give you?

There is a scene where I let go of an old friend, Ah-young, who became a ghost when she was killed at a young age. According to the script, In-soo was supposed to just gaze at the girl as she leaves. But the director suggested I cry as I let go of her, which I also thought was necessary because it is where In-soo lets go of his own trauma as well. So I followed the director’s lead, and I cried so much while shooting that scene. 

What made you become an actor?

I participated in a biblical drama at a church as a prop team member when I was in middle school. After that, I entered an ordinary high school that had an acting club. But to take my passion a step further, I transferred to the National High School of Traditional Arts. 

When I told my parents that I wanted to become an actor, my parents, who were also stage actors, accepted it and that’s how I first set foot on stage in 2006.
