When asked about his acting rivals, he pointed out, "They drive me to do better, but they also make me anxious." Joo Won shared his down-to-earth charm as well, "I am a fluid actor. When a character comes to mind, I am not one of those actors who bring the thought, 'This role is this actor.' Because I don't have a unique image, I think it's good for taking on various colors."
He also revealed his ideal type, "I used to think that love was all I needed, but rather than a passionate love, I prefer a person I'm comfortable with... I want to meet a wise woman who treats her parents well and listens to elders."
Joo Won has been keeping himself busy with roles in 'Fashion King', 'Xiao You Qiao Mu', and 'Nodame Cantabile'.
