Lee Joon Ki had his doubts over Scarlet Heart: Ryeo costar IU's acting skills
All we can talk about these days at the DramaFever HQ's is Scarlet Heart: Ryeo. Like remember this fun read, and this one too? Oh wait, here's one more! But this news nugget we have for you definitely takes the cake!
As the stellar cast of the upcoming drama posed for photos at the latest press conference, the lead actor and oppa for life Lee Joon Ki revealed that in the beginning he was worried if IU could pull off this role! In fact, these were his very words, "To be honest, I was really worried about IU's acting at first. It's true that she's shown her skills in previous projects, but there was a lot to process in the beginning. She's close to playing the lead, so I thought maybe it'd be too much pressure for her and I worried."
That's a bit surprising isn't it? But all was good once they started filming and Lee Joon Ki was convinced that his leading lady could match his acting prowess. "From the start of filming, I began to have a lot more trust in IU. IU's able to make the role her own. Working on the 2nd-3rd episodes, it made me think that I was able to lean on her as an actress, and it was another chance for me to focus on my character. I'm thankful she did so well. You should really look forward to it."
