Reporter Huang Shao Wei: Interview with 《Mr Sunshine》
(Earlier part omitted)
Interesting interaction with Yoo Yeon Seok and Byun Yo Han.
In contrast, the interview with the group of three second leads consisting of Yoo Yeon Seok, Kim Min Jung and Byun Yo Han feels more at ease and relaxing.
Yoo Yeon Seok was the first one to walk into the interview room. Once he sat down, he very politely asked each one of us where were we from. He is a warm, nice man, sort of like his character in his last drama 《Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim》.
When Kim Min Jung and Byun Yo Han came in, the atmosphere became even joyous. They cheerfully answered the questions while talking and laughing, teasing each other.
Yoo Yeon Seok and Byun Yo Han have facial hair in the drama, so both of them shared about the benefits and difficulties of sporting facial hair.
Byun Yo Han joked that he can save the trouble of shaving his facial hair, and doesn’t have to worry of scratching himself, while Yoo Yeon Seok revealed that he naturally can’t grow thick facial hair so he had to rely on make-up artists. The interaction between the two is so interesting.
Due to the time constraint, the group’s interview was cut down to 15 minutes from the original 20 minutes. There were 8 reporters from Hong Kong, Taiwan, the Philippines, Thailand and other places, so the time given was not enough. After the third reporter interviewed them, the staff signaled that that was the end of the interview.
Naturally, the reporters who came all the way to Korea but having no chance to interview them were looking reluctant and embarrassed. Seeing this, Yoo Yeon Seok took the initiative to ask for the interview time to be extended to let the rest of the reporters to interview them. He was being truly considerate.
There was a another episode where me and a Hong Kong reporter was waiting for the bus to go back to our hotel at the venue entrance. When Byun Yo Han passed by, he stopped and talked to us in Mandarin. Turns out he has studied in Harbin for three years during high school and his Chinese is good. And he was kind enough to take a selfie with us at the end, being so similar to his cheerful personality in the drama.
In my heart, he and Yoo Yeon Seok perhaps are the real “Mr Sunshine”.
