During the press conference for movie 'The King' on December 15, main actors Jo In Sung and Jung Woo Sung were asked if there was a psychological battle between the two over their looks and acting skills. Yes, it is a weird question that warrants a generic, safe answer. Which is what they got!
Jo In Sung replied, "To set your heart on comparing yourself to Jung Woo Sung's looks and acting is to make yourself miserable. You can't when you take into consideration his age and experience. I learned from Jung Woo Sung, but did not think about something that would make me miserable."
Hearing this, Jung Woo Sung said, "It's enjoyable for an actor to get his looks acknowledged, but I only hoped to get closer to my character on set and took in Jo In Sung as his character. We never competed with our looks. The moment I thought, 'He's become a cool Jo In Sung,' while working with him was very enjoyable for me. I also thought it was a relief I got to work with Jo In Sung and other colleagues."
