Director Lee Won Suk is currently visiting New York City to participate in a question and answer session at the New York Asian Film Festival for his 2014 period film, "The Royal Tailor." In his interview, Lee is candid about his work with Park Shin Hye and Yoo Yeon Seok, praising both stars for their on-set dedication and commitment to their craft. 🌟Park Shin Hye🌟 KDramaStars: Park Shin Hye is best known by international audiences for her roles in dramas like “You’re Beautiful” and “The Heirs,” while Yoo Yeon Seok gained attention for “Reply 1997.” What are your thoughts on working with Park Shin Hye and Yoo Yeon Seok?
Working with Park Shin Hye and Yoo Yeon Seok was an amazing experience. They both really work hard, especially Park Shin Hye. She really brightened up the set. Han Suk Kyu can be very serious but when she would arrive, she would help him and everyone else on the set relax.
Park Shin Hye’s fan club is amazing. They were so kind to us. The entire set was treated to buffets and coffee trucks. Every other day, we were treated to something from her fan club. What else could we ask for? We were happy with her and her fans helped, as well.
As an actress, she’s always ready to film. She constantly practices and comes to the set with lots of questions. She spends a lot of time thinking about her character and will write tons of notes on her script. One of the most important things she contributed to the film was her insight on the emotional line of the queen. As a woman, if I were the queen, I would do this or say this.” There would be times when she would become very emotional, as she connected with the role, where she would just start crying. She was very helpful with developing her character.
She did a lot of work with the film. There are some actors who just come to the set and film but she brings 500 percent to what she does. If she doesn’t reject the offer, I really want to work with her, in the future. I think that a lot of Korean directors want to work with her.
