Singapore, 2017 – The main lead of South Korean popular drama, Tomorrow With You, Lee Je Hoon met up with the media for an exclusive media conference on March 10, to promote the telecast of the hit drama on StarHub TV.
This is not the first time that Lee Je Hoon came to Singapore. He revealed that he came here two years ago. During his previous visit, he had tried a couple of local food which he really enjoyed. “My favorites are chili crab and chicken rice! I tried laksa before too, but I think I would need to have more courage to try it again,” he shared.
Lee Je Hoon plays the character, Yoo So-joon, a CEO of a real estate company, who has the ability to travel through time via a subway. So-joon foresees his future self living miserably so he decides to marry Ma-rin (played my Shin Min Ah), a photographer, in order to avoid that fate. As time passes, he learns to love her selflessly.
When asked if he would want to have the ability to know the future, he pondered and truthfully answered no. He explained, “It is good to know the future but there will be a time where I have to accept death and if I know bad things will come, I would try my best to fix it. But I would prefer to not know so I can live comfortably in the present.”
In Together With You, he acts alongside popular South Korean actress, Shin Min Ah . He shared that he is a big fan of her before the drama and they got along very well while filming. “We are of the same age and she told me to speak comfortably and be close. As we got to know each other better, I found out that she is a very warm person and I don’t feel awkward with her at all,” he revealed.
In the drama, Lee Je Hoon acted as a very romantic guy and there were a lot of lovey dovey moments between the two leads. When asked if he is romantic in real life, he laughed and exclaimed, “I think I can be!”. He further explained, “At first I don’t think I am, but as I was filming the drama, I realize I can be romantic.”. He also shared the most romantic thing he did for a girl. “When I was 20 years old, I had someone I like and the girl likes coffee milk. So I actually bought a 100 of them and gave it to her and confessed my love!” he shared shyly. He even confessed that he succeeded! Lucky girl indeed!
If he has the ability to time travel to the past, he revealed that he would want to travel back to when he was in middle school. He shared, “I really enjoyed going to school back then. I hated the weekends and always look forward to meeting my friends and teachers.”
Lee Je Hoon has acted in a variety of genres for his dramas. He previously gained popularity acting in a crime drama, “Signal” and is set to film a historical drama sometime this year. When asked if there are any genres that he is interested to try, he shared that he would love to be able to show off his physique and act as a boxer! “For now, I think my body is alright. But as one gets older, the youth will go missing. So for now, my body is alright!” he confessed shyly, bringing in lots of laughter.
When asked if he would like to work with any particular actress in the future, he shook his head and answered sweetly, “I don’t have someone in mind. Right now, I only have Shin Min Ah in my mind.”
During the press conference, Lee Je Hoon proves to be a very gentle and warm-hearted guy. He would be greeting his fans at West Mall Level 1 Atrium later today at 6.30pm. Fans will stand a chance to get up close and personal with Lee Je Hoon during the meet and greet.
