Cha Seung Won Shares on Competing with Jang Dong Gun’s Movie with ‘Highheel’
Cha Seung Won shared thoughts on having to compete with Jang Dong Gun through their newest films.
On May 12, Cha Seung Won attended press conference for film Highheel at Lotte Cinema near Konkuk University and shared his thoughts on facing competition with Jang Dong Gun’s movie Crying Man.
About making his return to the big screen, Cha Seung Won said, “Unlike dramas, it’s been a long time since I acted in a movie. Personally, I hope the movie can be a box office hit. It will be competing with Crying Man starring Jang Dong Gun. I hope that both movies can do well.”
The actor also said, “Apart from commercial success, the movie will be set apart from the other movies I acted in so far. There are many different qualities within a person. I don’t really know for sure, but I believe that in every man and woman, there exist both masculine and feminine qualities. They just don’t show them outwardly because of social norm or rules.”
Cha Seung Won continued, “It was difficult to film the movie because there were many extraordinary aspects to it. I would be satisfied with the movie, if it can convey the feminine qualities that I possess. It would be a lie to say that I’m not aware of Jang Dong Gun in Crying Man. I hope both movies can be successful.”
Highheel is about a homicide detective Ji Wook (Cha Seung Won) who, upon deciding to find his real self, gets involved in a fatal event. The movie will premiere in June.
