U-KISS’ Dongho and Hoon attend ‘Holyland’ production conference
On April 23rd, U-KISS‘s Dongho and Hoon attended the production conference for their cable TV super action drama, ‘Holyland‘.
Dongho revealed, “I read the Japanese comic first, so I was well versed with the drama’s scenario. It felt amazing to receive a casting offer from a drama I already knew so well. Since it already had an original series, I felt more confident with taking the role.”
Dongho plays the role of a student who is intially weak and introverted, thus regarded as a loner in society. After picking up boxing, he finds a new strength within himself and goes after the wrongfully rebellious.
He continued, “It’s true that I felt pressured because I had so many scenes. I figured that if the drama didn’t do so well, it’d be my fault. During the preparation process, however, I grew and matured, and I’m confident that a great product has emerged out of it. A lot of seniors helped and gave me advice, but there were a lot of scenes that I had to accomplish on my own. I worked hard to express it in my own way where help couldn’t reach, which is why there might be misinterpretations or lacking aspects in the final product. I will continue to grow, however, and show improvement.”
Hoon added, “I was really worried about acting with Dongho. There are a lot of scenes in ‘Holyland’ where Dongho and I converse with just our gazes alone. Considering that we burst out into laughter by just looking at each other normally, it was hard, but also a unique experience.”
Dongho also stated, “Whenever I went to film dramas, the other member hyungs would worry for me a lot. I could tell that they were a lot more comfortable with me being with Hoon hyung for ‘Holyland’ since the two of us can take care of each other and work on our teamwork.”
