Actor Lee Jong Hyuk of the drama 'A Gentleman's Dignity' talked about the stories of how they were casted.  

On KBS 2TV 'Win Win' that aired on August 21st, Lee Jong Hyuk spoke about how he rejected writer Kim Eun Sook's casting. He stated, "they were said to be a star writer and a star director, but I didn't really know. I didn't watch 'Lovers in Paris," and spoke about what happened.

Actors Jang Dong Gun, Kim Min Jong, Kim Soo Ro all accepted the casting, but Lee Jong Hyuk was different. He had the mindset that 'you are a writer I am an actor.' Lee Jong Hyuk added, "when they saw us bickering, they thought that we were fighting." 

Lee Jong Hyuk then added, "the writer told me, I'll let you shoot a commercial, which was half real and half a joke. Later on, I really was able to shoot a commercial."

Whenever I went to the film set of 'A Gentleman's Dignity,' it felt like I was walking on a red carpet. Lee Jong Hyuk comically said that he and Jang Dong Gun had a similar amount of cheering, but he confessed, "honestly, I'm envious of Jang Dong Gun," and made the people laugh.
