Lee Jong Suk captures hearts and discusses his Pinocchio kiss scenes at Hong Kong fan meet
Lee Jong Suk's popularity was raised sky high by the hit drama Pinocchio in countries outside of Korea. During a fan met in Hong Kong, he revealed surprisingly fun details about himself and also about the kiss scenes with Park Shin Hye.
At the May 30 fan meet in Hong Kong, Lee Jong Suk was dressed in a pink suit that showed off his warm personality, but he said he's really a homebody who stays at home much of the time. After Pinocchio was completed, he didn't even go anywhere special but just stayed home to sleep. Therefore, he continued, "If you pick me as a boyfriend, you'll regret it." His comment gave everyone a good laugh.
Earlier he said he was impressed by how passionate his Hong Kong fans were because they waited for hours for him to land at the airport despite the summer heat.
A segment of Pinocchio was played at the fan meet, and he said he "looked ugly" wearing a wig when he played Dal Po. While filming, he kept looking into the mirror to fix his hairdo, but he said he very rarely got NGs.
So what about his kiss scenes with his on-screen leading lady Park Shin Hye?
He admitted that he and Park Shin Hye both expressed true emotions during their kiss scenes. He was immediately asked whether it was based on real feelings, and he avoided a direct answer by saying Park Shin Hye always gave him a lot of support.
He was asked if he preferred the "Noona" or older-sister type of girls. He said with a sad expression, "My favorite Noona Lee Na Young just married Won Bin," again making everyone laugh. (Check out photos from their secret wedding.)
He said he loves acting and feels shy about singing, but he still sang for his fans and won applause. When some lucky fans were selected to go on stage, he complied with their every wish, whether it was to take photos or to give warm hugs.
Here's a video where he sang a love song from Pinocchio:
Don't you think he looks shy but also very endearing?
