“Everyone was crazy about acting.”

ZE:A’s Im Si Wan expressed his affection towards the cast and staff members he worked with for the tvN drama Misaeng.

During the media day event that took place on December 26 in a restaurant in Mapo-gu, Im Si Wan said, “During the past four months of filming Misaeng, everyone including the actors and staff members were crazy about acting. That kind of atmosphere made me think that I must work harder.”

He continued, “At first I had the attitude of just enjoying it but slowly, I began to think that I must survive. I felt a lot of weight and responsibility to show something as ‘Jang Geu Rae.’”

In Misaeng, Im Si Wan acted as the contracted worker Jang Geu Rae. Leaving behind his title as an idol singer, he caught attention with his stable acting ability. His passionate acting led to an impressive viewership rating and Misaeng earned enthusiastic interest to the point of being called a ‘national drama.’

About having taken a reward vacation to Cebu along with the Misaeng cast and staff members, Im Si Wan said, “Like the poem ‘Be Drunk’ by Charles Baudelaire, we were always drunk,” adding, “Manager Ha (Jeon Seok Ho) hyungnim shouted, ‘We must always be drunk.’ The atmosphere was really good and for most actors, it was their first time taking a reward vacation so it was enjoyable and rewarding.”

Finally he said, “I lived as ‘Jang Geu Rae’ for four months. As soon as I received the synopsis, I felt the sense of duty to absolutely do it , instead of thinking that I want to do it,” and added, “The viewership rating is not necessarily the scale of success but I think it’s fortunate that the results came out good. I would like to thank all the cast and staff members who I worked with.”
