He revealed that he put thought into Soo Cheol’s appearance, opting for a more traditional look that matched his character’s personality.

To get into character, Kwak Dong Yeon took cues from successful businessmen like Steve Jobs to give Soo Cheol a professional vibe.

With the final episode airing on April 28 KST, Kwak Dong Yeon‘s portrayal of Soo Cheol, peppered with comedic moments, played a significant role in the drama’s success.
