Lee Seo Jin only had "very good" things to say about his "Very Good Days" co-star 2PM"s Taecyeon and likened him to Lee Seung Gi in terms of their hard work ethic!
During a recent interview with OSEN, Lee Seo Jin complimented Taecyeon, "He acts quite well. He is good but he also works very hard"
He also compared Taecyeon to his close hoobae Lee Seung Gi, "I am also close with Lee Seung Gi. Whenever I look at Seung Gi, I can"t believe this kid is a singer. It"s to the point that I question if he is really that young because he is so sincere and I feel the same way about Taecyeon... He takes on his acting duties in a respectful manner and tries to work hard. In that sense, both Seung Gi and Taecyeon are similar."

He was full of beastly expressions while getting to work with his hammer.
Stay tuned for updates on whether or not "Very Good Days" will be canceled this week in light of the tragic ferry incident in South Korea.
