Lee Jong Suk and Girls’ Generation’s YoonA are the latest cover models for Elle!
The two actors are currently filming the upcoming tvN drama “Big Mouth” (literal title), a hard-boiled noir series about a third-rate lawyer who winds up in charge of a murder case that turns him overnight into a genius conman known as “Big Mouse.” In order to survive and protect his family, he must expose a huge conspiracy among the privileged upper classes.
Lee Jong Suk will star as Park Chang Ho, a third-rate lawyer with a 10 percent success rate, and YoonA will play Go Mi Ho, a nurse and Park Chang Ho’s wife.
In the interview following the photo shoot, Lee Jong Suk talked about his character Park Chang Ho. He shared, “I met a character who I could describe as ‘very human-like.’ I wanted to show a different side of me, like my inner weakness.”
YoonA, who is approaching her 15th debut anniversary, was asked when she feels like she has grown the most. She replied, “I feel that when the person Im YoonA changes, it affects my performance or acting. My ‘true nature’ should be abundant with many things. I feel like I grow when I develop after experiencing new things and building them up.”
Lee Jong Suk and YoonA discussed their sincerity and affection about acting. First off, Lee Jong Suk talked about the sense of accomplishment acting gives him. He remarked, “I have a great sense of accomplishment from the fact that I have people who support me. The desire to repay them grows. The support I’ve received so far has changed my life a lot.”
YoonA mentioned her character in “Big Mouth,” saying, “After playing a role, it feels like another piece of data about humans has been added to my mind. In the process of thinking about how Go Mi Ho of ‘Big Mouth’ will cope with certain situations and feel certain emotions, my world expands.”
Their full photo shoot and interview will be available in the March issue of Elle!
