Weak Hero Class 1 actors Park Ji Hoon and Choi Hyun Wook enjoyed overflowing popularity soon after the Wavve K-drama series was released.
The K-drama industry produced another hit series when it dropped Weak Hero Class 1 this month. The flick, based on the webcomic of the same name, explores the life of Park Ji Hoon’s Sieun, who spends his time studying instead of befriending his classmates.
One day, he bumps into Choi Hyun Wook’s Ahn Suho, his athletic classmate. The two then form an unlikely friendship with a transfer student named Oh Beom Seok (Hong Kyung).
As the K-drama received critical acclaim, the lead stars spoke candidly about how it became a turning point in their careers.
How Weak Hero Class 1 Changed The Lives of Park Ji Hoon, Choi Hyun Wook
The co-stars sat for an interview with The Korea Times and talked about how the eight-part series touched their lives.
According to Park Ji Hoon, Weak Hero Class 1 became the first-ever series he shed blood, sweat, and tears while filming.
“I feel especially attached and have grown more fond of it … I feel this work has been a turning point in my life. Not that my previous work wasn't fun. But that's how much I've grown attached to 'Weak Hero.' I've learned a lot working on it, and it has been really fun. Time flew by as I took part in this,” he said.
Meanwhile, Choi Hyun Wook revealed that the series taught him to be more optimistic while playing his character. In fact, Ahn Suho reportedly felt drawn to his character after reading the script.
Weak Hero Class 1 Lead Stars Learn Acting From One Another
Elsewhere in the interview, Park Ji Hoon noted that he and his two lead stars chose not to get close to one another to act awkwardly to each other, just like what the script told them to do.
So as the episodes progressed, they learned how to be close and adapt to one another’s acting skills.
Per the actor, he got a lot of learnings from the two and shared energies with them to complete their scenes.
“I learned to delicately put into acting the synergy that my fellow actors and I make. Each actor approaches acting differently and has a different definition for it," he said. "And getting to know other people and learning their way of acting was very interesting. That's one of the reasons why I love acting."
