Ok Taek-yeon, who is performing as Jang Joon-woo in the drama ‘Vinsenjo’, decorated the cover of ‘First Look’ for the first week of April.
He is showing a new look different from the previous work, from the real world of the bad company Babel and the relentless sociopath who even kills if necessary, as a new lawyer who craves the attention of senior lawyers. It brought out the response of numerous staff members who were on site.
He showed a more mature appearance, and in an interview conducted after the filming, he told a variety of stories, including affection for the current drama ‘Vinsenjo’, acting activities for the past 10 years, and working on the 2PM album being prepared.
Jang Joon-woo, who actually resembles Ok Taek-yeon a lot, was a new challenge for him. “When I first received the script, I thought, ‘I should do this?’ The synchro rate between Joon-woo and myself is very high. But Joon-Woo Jang, which I thought of, was like a figure of eight colors. As a character with a personality that goes back and forth between cold and hot baths, I am contemplating ‘Will it look right if I express it like this?’ and taking care of every detail. I’m curious how viewers will accept this because it’s a performance that I haven’t done so far.”
He wants to act with sincerity. “When I look at the work, I look at how the story flows, and then how I can express a character. I think that acting itself is a little more maximization of what I have and various parts rather than showing a completely different look to me. So, while watching my acting, I would like to see the character’s propensity and situations that are missing at once. I’m trying to do that.”
2PM’s comeback is currently in progress. “It is unclear if we can make a comeback this year, but we are planning. Since there has been a gap for more than 5 years, we are seriously discussing with the members what we can show, so please wait a little longer.”
Ok Taek-yeon, who says he wants to become a ‘happiness’ that gives happiness to many people everywhere, can be found in the magazine ‘First Look’ No. 215 of the magazine published on March 18th.
