Heo Sung Tae Picks The Actor He’s Most Comfortable With
Although he started working in another drama, Heo Sung Tae told JTBC Talk that he is most comfortable with his Insider co-star, Kang Ha Neul.
"I'm really shy and take a long time to open up to people. I think it's more so with celebrities. I still feel that they're 'stars on TV,' and I'm a person who's not on TV. But Kang Ha Neul changed that for me. He's just Ha Neul. He's so bright and pure. He's the only celebrity that I'm so comfortable with,” he explained, as translated by AllKpop.
In the JTBC K-drama, he plays the role of the legendary villain, Yoon Byung Wook. The character is the youngest applicant to pass the bar exam, and his early exposure to success urged him to flawlessly cover up financial crimes by businessmen.
Insider will air its last episode on July 28.
