Who doesn’t know So Ji Sub? He is one of the biggest name among actors in South Korea!

So Ji Sub made his debut in the entertainment industry as a jeans model. He is well known for his leading roles in drama series such as I’m Sorry, I Love You (2004), Cain and Abel (2009), Phantom (2012), Master’s Sun (2013) and Oh My Venus (2015-2016).

His most recent awards include the Top Excellence Award, Actor and Best Couple Award with Shin Min A for his role in the drama series Oh My Venus.

 

 

My Secret, Terrius marks his return to the small screen after a two-and-a-half-year hiatus. In this drama, he plays Kim Bon, a daytime babysitter who has a secret life as the legendary black ops agent from the National Intelligence Service who has the code name “Terrius”. He joins his neighbor Ko Ae Rin to discover the truth behind her husband’s involvement in a huge conspiracy.

Thanks to Oh!K, we got the opportunity to have a short interview with the man himself. Read on more below!

 

 

1. How does it feel to be back on TV and why did you choose My Secret, Terrius?

It’s been two and a half years since I last acted on a TV drama, so I’m very nervous. I think I’m going to be trembling when I watch the first episode. I chose My Secret, Terrius because I thought it would be fun to watch and I would enjoy filming the show. I think a lot of people can enjoy My Secret, Terrius as the drama is a combination of a lot of genres such as spy/action, romance and comedy.

 

2. There are a lot of action scenes in My Secret, Terrius. How different is it compared to Company Man?

In Company Man, we used ‘Systema’ which is a form of Russian martial arts. In My Secret Terrius, there are several action scenes. I actually attended a martial arts school to learn and train for my action scenes.

 

 

3. Can we expect to see a fresh take for your role in My Secret, Terrius?

That’s something I’m curious about too. Personally, I need to find some form of freshness in the dramas I star in. I really hope that our audience can see that in My Secret, Terrius. I hope they will enjoy it just as much as we enjoyed shooting it.

 

4. What was it like acting with two children? How did you feel playing the role of a baby sitter?

This is my first time acting with children in a TV drama. Though I was nervous, I found the experience fun at the same time. They are lovely kids and at times, I struggled to act alongside two children. This experience has made me believe that moms are incredible. Overall, I am thankful that the filming of the show has been going smoothly.

 

 

5. Parts of this drama were shot in Poland. What was that like?

We shot our Polish scenes during an autumn heatwave. We struggled a bit because it was quite hot and our wardrobes were quite thick. While I was in Poland, very few people recognized me. A couple next to me had even asked for my help in taking a photo for them and I did!

 

6. Is there any pressure about ratings? Do you have a ratings pledge?

Filming has been going smoothly. We have a great team that work brilliantly together. The shoots have been fun and our audiences can look forward to seeing our chemistry on screen. We haven’t yet talked about our ratings pledge, but we do have an approximate rating that we are aiming for!

I don’t feel that ratings are as important as they used to be. I believe that nowadays, it is most important that dramas ring true to our audiences and remain in their memory for years to come. With My Secret, Terrius we are trying to make it a memorable drama.

 

 

And that’s the end of our interview with actor So Ji Sub! Do check out the preview below if you have yet to catch the K-drama.

 

 

My Secret, Terrius airs on Oh!K (Astro Ch 394) within 24 hours of Korea, every Thursday and Friday at 7.50pm.

tvN’s latest 24-hour express drama in Asia – Player (玩家) – starring the hottest stars, award-winning actor Song Seung-heon (宋承宪) and singer-actress Krystal (郑秀晶), will premiere exclusively on tvN in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia from 30 September (Every Sunday & Monday) at 21:45 (GMT+8).

With the big success of express dramas like What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim and Familiar Wife, tvN expects that Player will continue to impress audience with its “thrilling” and “emotional” elements.

 

Player follows the story among four talented outlaws, i.e “players”, that rob the proceeds of crime and return to the poor. The team consists of veteran conman Kang Ha-ri (Song Seung-heon); skilled driver Cha Ah-ryung (Krystal); professional hacker Im Byung-min (Lee Si-eon); and inborn fighter Do Jin-woong (Tae Won-suk). Different from typical action dramas which stand on the viewpoint of the police or detectives, Player depicts a riveting story from the angle of swindlers, who are simply ordinary, or you may say not-really-rightful characters. This certainly draws keen attention to the fates of the crew as the story unfolds.

 

Likewise, Krystal’s first appearance on an action drama apparently grabs the audience’s attention. Krystal has expressed her feeling on her first challenge, “I always want to take part in an action drama. Although numerous action scenes in Player require lots of training and practice, other actors and the director are really experienced and caring, so I am well taken care of. The whole filming was exciting and enjoyable.” It is revealed that Krystal will take part in many car chasing scenes, which transform her from an elegant pretty lady from previous roles to a “girl crush” fearless driver!

 

When four people with different background and distinct character join forces, what kind of thrilling story will happen on them? Stay tuned to watch out the perfect chemistry of this “Gang of Four”!

 

Player will broadcast on tvN in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia from 30 September (Every Sunday & Monday) at 21:45 (GMT+8), within 24 hours after its broadcast in Korea, with subtitles in English, Chinese, Bahasa Malaysia and Bahasa Indonesia.

 

Player is available on tvN in the channels listed below

Singapore:
新電信電視 Singtel TV Channel 518 (HD) / Channel 619 (HD)
