Lee Hyun Woo talks about Beijing, searching his name online, and Kim Soo Hyun.
On September 24, actor Lee Hyun Woo flew to Beijing for an event celebrating the Chinese web portal 'Sugou,' which he is an advertisement model of.
During the event, he said, "I first visited Beijing for an award ceremony. The next time I returned, it was for a fan meeting, and now, it's to become a model from the website Sugou. I'm both grateful and excited to be coming back, just like every time I visit."
As an advertiser for an online portal, he was asked what he searches often, and he surprised everyone by answering, "I search for my name."
When asked if he searches for specific praise-related phrases like 'you're handsome,' or 'you're a good actor,' he said, "Seeing praises like that isn't the reason why I search my name, but when I do find something like it, I feel good and grateful."
While being interviewed, he also talked about his fellow advertising model Kim Soo Hyun, whom he worked with in the best-selling movie "Secretly, Greatly." He had nothing but praises for his former co-star.
Lee Hyun Woo said, "Even after the film, we still keep in touch. We don't meet often, but when we do, we prefer to talk about our lives, rather than just talk about acting."
He added, "There is nothing bad you can say about Kim Soo Hyun. He's the type of person who takes care of other people well, and he's also passionate. On top of that, he's good looking, athletic, and a lot of other good things. There isn't anything else I can say aside from that."
Following the success off his film "Secretly, Greatly" and drama "To The Beautiful You," Lee Hyun Woo became one of the most coveted stars of his generation.
Meanwhile, he is confirmed to star in the upcoming 2014 film "The Technicians," and 2015 film "Battle of Yeonpyeong."
