Jang Ki-yong and Lee Hye-ri of tvN’s “My Roommate Is a Gumiho” interview raised expectations for a deeper romance in an interview.
My Roommate Is a Gumiho” (directed by Nam Sung-woo/playwright Baek Sun-woo, Choi Bo-rim/Production Studio Dragon, JTBC Studio) is an inhumane romantic comedy in which human stories live in a house with 99-year-old Goo Mi-ho, Shin-woo, a cool 99-year-old old man. Jang Ki-yong (Shin Woo-yeo) and Lee Hye-ri (Lee Dam) have been playing up and down the small screen since the beginning of their relationship, showing a spectacular romance between Gumiho and humans.
In response, Jang Ki-yong and Lee Hye-ri thanked the viewers for their support, saying, “Thank you for watching and supporting the fox-dam couple.” Jang Ki-yong also said, “I’m also watching your romance from the perspective of the viewers,” and Lee Hye-ri said, “I’m always watching the responses of viewers who support Woo-yeo and Dam couple. Thank you every time. Every time I see the reaction, I feel like I’m in the audience’s shoes,” he said, expressing his special affection for the work.
Jang Ki-yong and Lee Hye-ri are attracting viewers by vividly portraying the characters of 99-year-old nine-year-old nine-year-old nine-year-old nine-year-old fox Shin Woo-yeo and Lee Dam, a human born in 1999. In particular, Jang Ki-yong is shaking the hearts of women with his charming visuals and atmosphere. Jang Ki-yong said, “It’s embarrassing, but I’m actually very thankful and grateful.” I’m happy because people around me have told me that the responses are good these days. “I want to continue to show you better performances.” Jang Ki-yong also commented on Lee Hye-ri’s good chemistry, saying, “Thanks to Lee Hye-ri’s great performance, good synergy and chemistry seem to have come out.” Also, I think the power of the script is very great. “Since I first saw the script, I thought all relationships were very fun and three-dimensional,” he said, giving credit to his partner Lee Hye-ri and the production team.
Furthermore, Jang Ki-yong drew enthusiastic responses in the 7th episode with his one-man, two-part acting performance between Woo-yeo and Maegu (the Gumiho, who failed to become a human being, turned into evil spirits). Jang Ki-yong said, “Many say it’s scary. It was a tense scene where Dam could be in danger because of Maegu, who turned into Woo-yeo, and I’m glad and grateful that the viewers felt that way and were immersed in it,” he said. “In fact, I think it was a scene that made all the great CG and background.” Since it is the first time for fantasy, I have never filmed scenes with so much CG. “It’s really hard to imagine and it’s fun to act,” he said.
Lee Hye-ri is a confident young human, Lee Dam character who is full of words and is creating sympathy and support from viewers. In response, Lee Hye-ri said, “I can’t watch one by one, but I’m trying to read and communicate with viewers’ comments whenever I have time. I was happy to see the responses that Dam is not hiding her feelings is cool” and “Dam’s honesty is lovely.” “I also acted hoping that Dami would feel confident and active, and I was proud and grateful that these efforts and wishes were conveyed well.”
Lee Hye-ri also picked “Favorite Scene” among the sweet scenes of “The Fox Story Couple,” which gave viewers excitement and smiles. His favorite scene is the first “First Street Meeting” scene where Woo-yeo and Dam-i met for the first time. In response, Lee Hye-ri said, “Dam is very calm while Jae-jin, who is drunk, excuse Woo-yeo’s car and is surprised to see Woo-yeo, the owner of the car.” “It’s like a scene that revealed the charm of the two opposite characters and raised questions about the ‘fox-dam couple’ that will continue in the future.”
Finally, Jang Ki-yong and Lee Hye-ri drew attention by directly selecting the points to watch in the second half of each character and the “Fox Story Couple.” Jang Ki-yong said, “As Woo-yeo finally realized how he feels for Dam-i, many sweeter and more lovely images of the two will appear.” The deepening romance between the two will give viewers laughter and excitement until the end.
Please look forward to it.
Lee Hye-ri said, “Dam and Woo-yeo have just begun their love, but there are many assignments left for Woo-yeo to solve together in order to become human beings,” and added, “Dam is constantly at a crossroads in front of fate intertwined with Gye Sun-woo (Bae In-hyuk).” “I hope you watch Dami find true love with Woo-yeo, his first love, until the end and enjoy it until the end.”
