Ki Hong Lee expressed great affection for his motherland South Korea.

The January 16 airing of SBS' 'One Night of TV Entertainment' featured an interview with Ki Hong Lee. 

When asked about the hardest part in filming 'The Maze Runner', Ki Hong Lee answered, "The most difficult part was running fast." As for the hardest part of working in Hollywood, Ki Hong Lee stated, "There aren't many roles (available for me). So playing the role of Minho (in 'The Maze Runner') was very lucky to me."

Next, the actor was asked why he continues to use his Korean name in Hollywood instead of an American name. He explained, "It's my name. I'm Korean and I just wanted to be myself. I'm proud of who I am."

Ki Hong Lee also shared that he recently watched the Korean film 'The Wailing'. He commented, "'The Wailing' was very impressive. The power went out on the night that I watched the film. I was so scared that I said I'm never watching a scary movie again."

Lastly, Ki Hong Lee expressed great love for Korea, and said, "I was born in Korea and raised in the U.S. Like Korea is the motherland. I feel like I'm showing it to my mom whenever I visit Korea with a new production. So I feel lucky and blessed. I'm also very happy to receive so much support from Korean fans."

'Maze Runner: Death Cure' starring Ki Hong Lee, Dylan O'Brien, and more is hitting the theaters in Korea on January 17.
