Oh Seung Hoon recalled the first time he saw the actress on the set with her unrecognizable transformation.

He said that he was surprised when the actress walked in on the set.

“In my head, Han Hyo Joo is such a beautiful person. I’ve loved her ever since I was a kid. She’s like my ideal type,” he said, as obtained by SBS Star.

Praising Han Hyo Joo, the actor then mentioned his first reaction to seeing Han Hyo Joo’s transformation.

“But when I saw her at the filming location, she looked awful. She looked too much like ‘Big Knife.'”

Despite being stunned by how Han Hyo Joo looked different with her new character, Oh Seung Hoon pointed out how important it is for the actor to look different depending on the character he or she portrays.

“Acting is important, too, but her dedication to fully embody the character through her appearance amazed me.”

In Han Hyo Joo’s previous interviews, she said that she paid a lot of attention not only to her lines but also to how she visually portrayed the role of Big Knife.

During the press conference, the actress said that she put in a lot of hard work and sweat to build her body and to showcase Big Knife’s tough character.

“I trained rigorously. A week before shooting, I cried on the treadmill. It was challenging,” she said, as obtained by a different outlet.
