In this kind of work culture… where people treat you based on your background, I decided to work here quietly as if I’m not even here. I’d never been invited to a company dinner with that kind of kindness… until Manager Park invited me one night. Manager Park never treated me poorly for being a temporary employee and his junior. I like him. I respect him. I got used to being neglected so I didn’t expect much from other people, and I never tried hard to hear praise from other people. But now… I want to do a good job. I don’t know if the fact that I like someone will produce an unfavorable outcome but even if you fire me today… I’ve been treated like a human being for the first time. And I thought… that I could be a decent person after all while working here. So I’ll always be thankful to Manager Park. Whenever I pass by and see this building, I’m happy… and I’ll always wish the best for Saman E&C.

Q1. On the drama set, he / she always _______?

LSG: IU always behaves (lives) like Lee Ji-an while i’m just a chatterbox. Just like her dark and heavy character ‘Ji-an’, IU didn’t talk or deal with people much, and always sat in front of the desk lonelily on the drama set (laughs). But as we interacted with each other more and more, she became more cheerful. She really put in lots of effort and acting skills to fully immerse herself in the character.

IU: (LSG sunbaenim) always laughs heartily with everyone, I always hear his laughter resonates throughout the drama set. Sunbaenim is like his character ‘Dong Hoon’ (laughs).

LSG: I’ve always been a chatterbox and you’re always alone LOL

IU: Especially when we were shooting office scenes, (LSG sunbaenim) was like the actual head of department. I was amazed by how his subordinates would follow his orders as soon as he spoke. Even though Ji-an’s character is far from being chatty, I could still hear sunbaenim’s unique laughter from afar, which was very fascinating like a drama.

Q2. Based on the title ‘My Mister’, he / she is ‘My _______’?

LSG: My Ji-an. I honestly can’t imagine anyone but IU as Lee Ji-an. I feel so thankful towards IU for always behaving and making herself as ‘Ji-an’.

IU: My superb partner. I’ve always wanted to say this in an interview…that even though I found a few scenes really challenging when I was reading the script, but thanks to LSG sunbaenim and his presence, I was able to act naturally. I cried a lot in episode 15. As soon as we wrapped up our filming, I wanted to thank sunbaenim formally but he told me it’s alright to thank him in an informal/casual manner. I guess I experienced what the seniors called it ‘a magical moment’ where the aftermaths of finally escaping from the drama hit me and made me want to continue portraying my role subconsciously. I couldn’t forget the moment where I felt like I was still stuck in that drama land when sunbaenim spoke to me.

LSG: The best thing about the ‘My Mister’ team is that nobody was greedy for their roles to stand out for (screentime). We had a tough time thinking thoroughly on how to bring our characters to life and make other characters shine at the same time, so it felt really amazing when we actually did it.


“Ji-an is like an abandoned kitten” – Lee Sun Gyun

“Dong Hoon is a man that one can’t help but to fall in love with” – IU

“I would love myself even more if I have no feelings of hatred but only a heart full of love” – IU

Q1. There were many heartfelt and impressive lines in ‘My Mister’. Was there any specific lines or scene that has left a deep impression on you?

Lee Sun Kyun: To me, the most memorable line was ‘It’s not a big deal’. This is simply one of my thoughts, that is no matter how tough the situation is, as time goes by, it’s nothing at all. Even if good things happen right now, I think the most important thing is to behave normally instead of getting over excited about it.

IU: The dialogue between Jung Hee and Dong Hoon was very memorable to me. When Dong hoon asked “Why are people so petty?”, Jung Hee replied “You really have no idea about it? People are petty because they’re not in love.” The lyrics of the background music “One Million Roses” fitted that scene so well! It made me thought of many things about ‘love’. It was such an emotional scene that made me cried my heart out.

Q2. Have you seen director Kim’s other projects? How does director Kim Won Seok differ from the other directors?

Lee Sun Kyun: Of course I did. So far, I have worked with lots of directors and if I were to describe director Kim Won Seok in one word, he is no doubt a ‘conductor’. He excels in every aspect, especially his authoritative voice that controls the atmosphere of the filming set. From helping us with every fine details of the script to the timings of each line, he is a conductor who guides the actors to perform acts smoothly under a comfortable environment.

Q3. Which original soundtrack of ‘My Mister’ is your favourite?

Lee Sun Kyun: Though I love all of the OSTs, my favourite one is ‘Adult’ (Grown Ups by Sondia). I think this song played a huge role in giving a boost to our drama. Listening to the OST alone is great, but it’s even more impactful when you listen to it together with the drama.

IU: It’s the same for me. Even now, just listening to the intro of ‘Adult’ brings me back to the world of drama. I can confidently say that this OST is a masterpiece.

Q4. How was it like working with actress Lee Ji-ah? (Dong Hoon’s wife, Yoon Hee)

Lee Sun Kyun: It was great as she is an easy-going person. Though Dong Hoon and Yoon Hee were always quarreling and had a bad relationship, she is a good drinker. We talked about how nice it would have been if they filmed a scene where Dong Hoon and Yoon Hee were just casually drinking and getting along well.

Q5. How was it like working with actor Jang Kiyong?

IU: Jang Ki Yong appeared in two of my music videos, and we acted as a sweet couple in both of it. This time, our characters hate each other so much as though they want to kill each other, so it was actually a fun experience for me (laughs). Since we had to immerse in our roles completely on the filming set, I tried to keep my distance from him. Though there were many scenes where I was beaten or involved in scrimmages, he would always guide me to make sure that I wouldn’t get hurt or feel uncomfortable during the filming (laughs). He was really helpful as he is an expert at shooting action scenes.

Q6. For our ‘Marisol’ magazine readers who are mostly women in their 40s (below and above), can you recommend a hot place in Seoul?

Lee Sun Kyun: I recommend Gwanghwamun in Jongno, Seoul. Recently, I went to travel and got such feeling that if I travel overseas, I will stay there for a few days and experience the country and its culture. There are various sides of that country, but as the schedule is limited, you will only see one side and feel the atmosphere of that country. In that sense, the place i’ve been before and actually felt nice in Korea would be Gwanghwamun, Jongno. The atmosphere is great, calm and clean… I think it’s a cool area.

IU: For me, I would recommend Gwangjang Market. There are lots of stuff to see and yummy food to eat, so one can experience many things in one place. The vibrant and lively atmosphere very much represents South Korea in my opinion. I think it’s not the kind of atmosphere that one find it common in Japan. Though it’s a hot place that many have been there before, I still want to recommend it.
