So Ji Sub on ‘Ghost’, “It Was My Most Challenging Work to Date”
So Ji Sub finished shooting his final scene for SBS′ Ghost on August 4 after four months of shooting.
After given the cue that filming had ended, So Ji Sub expressed his gratitude by going and giving a hug to each staff member and thanking them for their hard work.
When asked by the staff, “It was difficult filming [for the drama] wasn’t it?”, So Ji Sub candidly responded, “I can speak honestly now right? I think this has been my most challenging work to date,” eliciting laughter from the staff.
The actor also couldn’t believe he had finally finished filming for the drama saying, “Though filming has ended, with two episodes still left, it hasn’t hit me yet. I think after [the final episode’s airing] it will hit me.”
So Ji Sub expounded on the challenges he faced filming for this particular drama as he shared, “As this was a genre that the actors and staff had all attempted for the first time, and with no clear examples to follow, I think we had some challenges. As this particular drama’s story was oriented around the various happenings in the plot and not the emotions of the leads, it wasn’t an easy drama to act in. I think everyone found that aspect to be challenging.”
He added, “Trying to memorize the lines [for this drama] will forever be unforgettable to me. I honestly think Ghost was the drama that I made the most mistakes in of all my acting career. Memorizing the lines was truly difficult.”
Lastly, the actor expressed his gratitude to the show’s loyal fans saying, “There were many who said this was a genre that would be difficult to be made into a drama and many who worried over the viewership ratings due to the lack of mellow scenes. But we were surprised to find a passionate reaction from fans. I feel like I’ve scaled and come down from a big mountain. I’m already sad to know the final episode is coming. Thank you to everyone who has loved Woo Hyun and Gi Young all this time.”
The next episode of Ghost will air on August 19.
