“There hadn’t been much smiles during this period of time, I hope to get a cheerful role in my next project.” This was what Song Seung Hun said during the “East of Eden” finale press conference held yesterday (9th), a day before MBC is to air the final two episodes of the drama.
This 56-episode drama which narrates the life and struggle between families and the tragic fate of two brothers, has come a long way since its first airing last August. During the media conference, both Song Seung Hun and Yun Jung Hoon expressed similar views: “Hope I can get to display a more cheerful acting the next time. Under the current situation where the market is dominated by comedy dramas, this drama which narrates the conflict between two families and brothers is very meaningful. I have also befriend many seniors and juniors alike which to me, is the greatest reward out of this.”
Song Seung Hun said: “Dong Chul in the drama is unable to express his love for his loved woman due to family conflicts but for me, I’m a person who can abandon everything for the sake of love. This is the difference.”
For Yun Jung Hoon, he said: “Han Ga In and I are living amicably. We are planning to have a baby next year.”
During the past 7 months of filming, Song Seung Hun recalled the times where he had to film under the scorching sun in Macau while Yun Jung Hoon thought of the scene where he shouted at passing vehicles after discovering about his birth secret. Even though the changing of screenwriter and departure of Lee Da Hae dealt a blow to the team, but the incidents unexpectedly made the team more united than before.
In response to the crown being taken away by “Boys Before Flowers”, Song Seung Hun said: “I think the audience range of both dramas are different. Although, the cast of ‘Boys Before Flowers’ are mostly made up of newcomers, but they have performed very well. I know that ‘East of Eden’ gave others a feeling of being the second fiddle, but this is also the clause for a new start.”
As for the future plans, Song Seung Hun said that he wanted to go for a tour and a game of golf while Yun Jung Hoon expressed his wish to go on a trip with his brother.
The final two episodes, 55 and 56, will be shown tonight (10th).
