‘Naughty Kiss’, which ended last October, was a total failure viewers rating-wise. Even though it recorded 8 million viewers for YouTube special version, TV version ended quietly.
Compare to the careful question, Kim Hyun-joong’s answer was cool. “Everybody near me asked that I was okay, but I was really okay. I was because it wasn’t the worst viewers rated drama. I told people that all I have to do is go up now.”
Kim Hyun-joong confessed that he also learned responsibility as an actor from this drama. “I learned how hard it was to lead a drama by oneself. I don’t regret my work since I did my best. I love to have high viewers rating but I don’t cling to it. I rather try to do a drama that I can proudly show to my son/daughter later in my life. ‘Naughty Kiss’ will be one of them.”
He also revealed his thoughts about classic mellow or action drama/movie. “Yoon Ji-ho from ‘Boys over Flowers’ or Baek Seung-jo from ‘Naughty Kiss’ are totally different character from me. Their lines are so cheesy. I think they were cheesy because those two dramas were school-based dramas. I want to do some other types of character for next drama. Someone who likes to yell and full of testosterone.”
