Lee Hyun Woo is a Soccer Star in ‘To the Beautiful You’ Stills
Lee Hyun Woo has displayed his fancy footwork while filming for the upcoming SBS drama To the Beautiful You.
In the drama, Lee Hyun Woo plays the role of Cha Eun Gyul, the soccer star with a bright and playful personality.
The new still cuts show Lee Hyun Woo on the field while shooting a soccer match scene for the drama. The actor displayed ease on the field and with a soccer ball as he dribbled through the opponents, dodged tackles and even did so while talking on a phone.
For Lee Hyun Woo, filming on the soccer field was familiar territory for the actor as he had been an avid soccer fan and player since he was a student.
Though the shooting schedule for the scene alone took place from 10 in the morning until 4 in the afternoon, Lee Hyun Woo showed no signs of fatigue while remaining upbeat and positive.
The actor also shared an encouraging message for Korea’s soccer team competing in the 2012 London Olympics currently saying, “In between the drama’s filming, I′m making sure to watch Korea’s [soccer players] and am continually rooting for them. Since I am playing a soccer player in the drama, I’m finding myself more interested in our nation’s [soccer] team.”
He added, “Everything from the manners on the field, the dribbling, shooting and more I’m finding myself studying Korea’s soccer team. I hope in the August 8 match against Brazil too they will be able to unleash their full talent and play without any injuries.”
To the Beautiful You premieres on August 15.
