Yoo Seung Ho Shares His Thoughts Of Playing A Dark Role In “Remember”

Release Date: 30th January, 2016

"Remember" has gone half of its way and dominates with quite high rating. Those who are fans of Remember must never forget the talented Attorney Seo Jin Woo (Yoo Seung-Ho). Now let’s have a talk with this handsome young actor!

 Yoo Seung Ho Shares His Thoughts Of Playing A Dark Role In Remember

In the hit Korean drama Remember (also known as Remember — War Of The Son), Yoo Seung-ho plays a lawyer with the condition of hyperthymesia, which allows him to remember almost everything in perfect details. His father is wrongfully convicted of murder when his memory starts to be lost due to Alzheimer disease. Jin Woo becomes a lawyer and struggles for years to prove his father’s innocence.

It’s an intense thriller with dark themes such as social injustice. A lot of focus is required for the role, as he said in an email interview.

Seung Ho began his acting career when he was just a child in 2002 with the film “The Way Home”. After that, he participated in films such as Blind, and in television dramas such as Master of Study and Operation Proposal. “Remember” is his first television drama after his military discharge, marking his coming back at the age of 22.

Here’s a short interview with Yoo Seung Ho.

Q: The role is very intense, emotional and dark. How do you keep the stress from getting to you?

A: You are right — this is one of the darker dramas that I have done. I remind myself how lucky I am to be able to do what I love, and the stress goes away. Also, I try to keep a positive attitude on set, even during long days. I find happiness contagious — a happy person will make others happy. Still, filming for long hours is stressful for the body — I can’t wait to be able to sleep and laze around in bed.


Q: You seem to have crying scenes in almost every episode. Is it exhausting to force the tears out, or can you cry on cue?

A: I have been crying since I was little! And, yes, it has been an emotional journey for both my character and I. I have always been a very emotional person and I think acting has played a big part in that. It has put me more in touch with my softer, emotional side. As the years pass, I find myself more and more sensitive to people’s feelings, which I think is great.


Q: What is your earliest memory from childhood?

A: I remember celebrating my birthday. I don’t remember how old I was but the cake was larger than me and I was overjoyed. Since then, I’ve always looked forward to celebrating birthdays — I get to choose my own cake now.


Q: What is one memory you would like to forget?

A: I don’t like horror movies. The thing about guys watching horror shows is that you only feel the effects after the show is over. I start imagining things, and, as you know, I am sensitive (Laughs). I would choose to forget all the horror shows I have watched!


Q: And what about the last time you forgot a line while filming?

A: I usually don’t forget my lines because we rehearse each take. But I do add in an extra word or two. I have internalised the character, so I think my interpretation of the character does make it more realistic.
