The new movie Band Aid brought Go Soo and Han Hyo Joo together in a photo shoot with fashion magazine Marie Claire.
The two actors starred in the movie, Band Aid, which is about the pain experienced by one and the healing given by another. With such a profound plot, it seems that the actors also took away something and learned things for themselves.
For Go Soo, Band Aid was a part of his fresh start after returning from the army. “I wanted to do more movies that didn't focus on a genre but more on everyday acting. This movie was exactly that for me. A lot of people think if I'm in it, the movie will be heavy, difficult, and depressing, but this is not the case, this time.”
It was similar for Han Hyo Joo. After being typecast into many traditional dramas and movies, Han Hyo Joo decide it was time to shed that image and go back to the bright and healthy character that she was known for early in her career.
“I wanted a character with a twist and I met this good character at the right time” said Han Hyo Joo. “She's not a character that's just bright all the time She has a lot to say. I've acted out a lot of optimistic and kind girls, but this is my first time playing a girl who does what she wants.”
On the attraction of Band Aid, Go Soo replies that it's a very easygoing movie.
“When I finished reading the script, I didn't feel frustrated or weighed down, but instead felt that it was a lighthearted movie,” said Go Soo. “The director also hates it when we act. He wanted us to behave as it was and not try to do something, so I made sure do things as comfortable as possible.”
After filming many large-scale and heavy movies, Go Soo added, “It was the first time that I've actually had a lot of fun on the set.”
Agreeing with the lightheartedness of the drama, Han Hyo Joo shared, “Usually I have a lot of greed for acting and feel the pressure to do well. When I feel that I didn't do so well, I blame myself.”
But Band Aid was different.
“I didn't think like that at all. I had a lot of while acting. I found out for the first time that you can have this much fun while acting. I'm very grateful to have learned this.”
Go Soo and Han Hyo Joo's interview and pictorial will be included in the January Issue.
