Jo Jung Suk defends co-star Hyeri's 'poor' acting skills

Hyeri, Jo Jung Suk
On January 22, Jo Jung Suk held an interview with XSport News in a Gangnam cafe. During the interview, he only had good things to say about his 'Two Cops' co-star Hyeri. This was surprising because she has experienced backlash due to her perceived lack of acting skills. 

"Now that 'Two Cops' is over, I have started to receive acting lessons. I admit it's a bit late to be starting the lessons," Jo Jung Suk stated. 

He continued with, "After the first broadcast did not receive a very positive response, I knew the [production] team was uneasy about that. However, if the teamwork is good, problems usually do not develop. If you work hard until the end, the desired results will come to fruition." 

In the drama, Jo Jong Suk's character Cha Dong Tak is a passionate detective in the violent crimes unit. His body is possessed by the spirit of Gong Su Chang, a sneaky con artist. This supernatural twist is what gives the drama a unique appeal. Hyeri plays Song Ji An, a reporter for the social department. 

Jo Jung Suk went on by saying "I don't understand that part (the criticism toward Hyeri). I thought Hyeri's acting was good. In terms of the acting, her style might not have matched well with the production but I still think her acting was good."

He continued, "I received a lot of good vibe (from Hyeri). She's an actress with good acting. I didn't provide any specific advice for her. I just encouraged on the sets and it was admirable that she had the actually wrote a letter for her fans. It's hard enough to just think that way but she has actually put it into action and I felt that she was truly reflecting on herself. I am proud of my younger colleague for the work that she has done."
