"So Ji Sub Road" So Ji Sub comfortable walk
Q. Road Number One has completed to air last july & you seem very busy.
A. Drama filming ended in June because it's a pre-production work. Afterwards, I did get busy working on my advertising & photoshoots. Of course, besides the travel to Gangwon Province.
Q. "So Ji Sub Road" is a photo essay. it has photos here & there with written pieces done by yourself. Do you have the habit to write down daily journal ( diary)?
A. Im not good at writing, but i slowly/gradually began to write in preparation of this book. Nowadays, there are a lot of tools that can help one easily write a lot like cell phones & notebooks.
Q. There are not many actors who have the chance to write something. Were there any study process ?
A. Because i tried to write. I mean, writing was not forced, i wanted to write down my thoughts in a light way. In that sense, i did 'caring' writing .
Q. Was it the first time for you to visit Gangwon province?
A. I remember being there before but not personnally, at many times i was with fellow actors & stuff. I did not had time to tour around because of work.
Q. You're an Incheon native. How different is it from back home?
A. In Incheon, you can . While this time it's over 1800 meters above the sea level, there are mountains, rivers, lakes,
Q. There were Tiger JK, the cartonnist Park Jae, the novelist Lee Wes, photographer Lee Eun and seven other guests. Was it your first encounter with all of them, except Tiger Jk?
A. I have read about them in books & saw them on Tv, i felt much more comfortable with them in person. We talked so much, that was the most memorable event : seeing such places with such gifted guests. One day , we were very concerned about the weather for filming , we had already sought for permission from the Environment ministry. But we had a foggy landscape and a storm was ready to blow, we were forced to wait untill it calms down. Fortunately the sheduled shooting with Professor Park Jae became possible in the afternoon.
