Actor Song Joong Ki, the bluechip of the year, shared some thoughts about his career and character influences on MBC’s “Section TV Entertainment News.”
Reporters met with him on an undisclosed set for an advertisement shoot. Emerging from the makeup room, the actor was surrounded by cheers from the female staff members as they took in his new dandy image.
Known to be fairly grounded, Song Joong Ki was asked by the reporters if he ever felt the impact of his rising popularity. The actor candidly replied, ”I do feel that they are loving me more than the past. I love it when the ajummas at restaurants give me an extra bowl of rice.”
He then went on to reveal some of his inspirations for his casanova role in “Sungkyunkwan Scandal.” The actor confessed to drawing influences from the acting of Kang Dong Won in “Junwuchi“, as well as Johnny Depp from “Pirates of the Caribbean.”
When asked about his plans for future projects, Song Joong Ki replied that he wanted to try his hand at a romantic comedy drama, particularly alongside actress Kim Nam Ju (who is currently a leading role in MBC’s “Queen of Reversals“).
While on the topic of romantic comedies, the actor was asked about the traits of his ideal woman. He simply answered, “A woman that is both cute and sexy.”
The segment can be seen on December 5th.
