About the drama’s popularity
When asked about the drama’s popularity, Kim Hee Ae said, “It’s incredible. I want to know the secret too.”
She added, “I think it’s difficult to pick one thing. So many things seem to have fallen perfectly without our knowledge. From the original work; to what the script writer, Joo Hyun Joo wrote; and to director, Mo Wan Il’s charismatic leadership each staff member created a perfect environment for acting. This seems to me are the reasons why results were good.”
Next, Park Hae Joon said, “We are still in the middle of the drama, but I’m curious as to what story will come next. A lot of people like it and there were congratulatory phone calls here and there. I didn’t know too many people would be interested in the drama so I’m so grateful and thankful.”
Thoughts on the characters
All the actors from the drama have left a strong impact through their characters. In particular, Kim Hee Ae showed a fierce acting as she expresses a wide range of expressions through her character, Ji Sun Woo. Speaking about her character, Kim Hee Ae said, “I think Ji Sun Woo’s charms does not sway even when she is in trouble.”
Along with the popularity of Kim Hee Ae, her previous works, My Man’s Woman and Secret Affair are also becoming hot topics. In this regard, she said, “I can’t remember it because it was a long time ago, but My Man’s Woman was a very unprecedented work at that time. It was the opposite of the present but was immersively filmed.”
Park Hae Joon said, “I didn’t look at the comments because I thought I will shake a lot after the first broadcast. I saw a lot of comments when I was working on it before, but I thought it would be better not to see it this time. If I see any comments then I close my eyes and try to forget quickly and do 50 squats. Anyway, I seem to be getting a lot of attention. I want to thank you for the overwhelming love but I also feel the burden.”
The actor also expressed the difficulty in playing the role and said, “Though, I’m in the character while playing Lee Tae Oh, but at times I start thinking, ‘This is a little too much.’ ‘Do I need to do this?’ Anyway, I am the only one who can represent and defend Lee Tae Oh. If you look at it like this, then you will think this person lives a hard life and have a little sympathy for him.”
Praises for Han So Hee
In addition to these two actors, Han So Hee who plays the role of Yeo Da Kyung has been gaining a lot of attention of the viewers. Answering to a question about Han So Hee, Kim Hee Ae lauded her with praises and said, “Han So Hee is in charge of beauty in our drama. She is such a perfect and passionate actress now. I can’t even imagine what kind of actress she will become when she is of my age.”
In the previous press release, Han So Hee talked about being worried for the scene where she strikes the back of Kim Hee Ae. In response, Kim Hee Ae said, “The scene was very romantic and I enjoyed it. I think it’s precious that you were nervous. When shooting, it’s nasty, but outside the studio, it was fresh and pure at that age.”
The actress also adds, “I am intentionally putting a little distance to Park Hae Joon and Han So Hee since I’m afraid that the emotions line will be broken.”
Plot twists and future episodes
The unique charm about The World of the Married is its ability to make the viewers feel emotionally agitated. Particularly, at the end of the sixth episode when Lee Tae Oh and Yeo Da Kyung returns back to Gosan raising the stress to the extreme.
Regarding the plot twist of the sixth episode ending, Kim Hee Ae said, “I didn’t say it out loud but I knew it. I think it’s an experience that can’t be made by an actor alone. It seems that a twist like this will appear in episode 12 as well.”
In terms of expectations and key points for the second half of the drama, both Kim and Park said that viewers should look forward to the couple’s son, Lee Joon Young. He is the catalyst who causes the upcoming conflicts further into the story.
Expectations from The World of the Married
Lastly, when Kim Hee Ae was asked on how does she wants The World of the Married to be remembered. The actress replied, “We thought that it wasn’t a drama that many people would watch. I didn’t expect that many people of all ages would like it, and it was unbelievable because we received so much love. The World of the Married is a miracle, an unexpected gift.”
Then Park Hae Joon said, “I didn’t know how to introduce this drama and how to talk about it. But I saw that there are a lot of couples around who are watching this drama together, having a beer and talking about each other a lot. Because of this drama, there are so many people communicating and sharing with each other on their mobile phones. I am comfortable with the thought that it’s not too bad. I’m very grateful to see it like that. I think this drama will have a good effect.”
The World of the Married airs every Friday and Saturday at 10:50 pm KST.
