Actress Han Ye Seul (30) shared her thoughts about her Spy Myungwol co-star, Shinhwa member Eric (32), and the other Shinhwa members that she has worked with, at the press call held on 20th June at the KBS drama production centre in Suwon.
The actress has earned praise from fellow cast members and the production crew for her relentless portrayal of the titular character, North Korean spy Han Myungwol, who is tasked to seduce top Hallyu star Kang Woo over to North Korea. Including Eric, Han Ye Seul has already worked with a total of 4 Shinhwa members – Junjin in “Legend of the Nine-tailed Fox”; Andy in “Nonstop 4”; and also hosting duties on SBS Inkigayo with Kim Dongwan.
Having worked with more than half of Shinhwa, Han Ye Seul has used the term “open mind” to describe them. She said, “Shinhwa members are considerate of others, and they would take the initiative. People are usually more shy and uncomfortable around strangers but perhaps they have met more people so they’re more open-minded.”
In contrast, Han Ye Seul said that Eric “is more of a shy boy that I thought. Eric is a lot more different from what I imagined.”
“No matter what, Shinhwa are top idols and they seem very cool so I thought that Eric would be very confident and good with meeting people. But he’s unexpectedly very shy around strangers. At first he was even a little awkward, but after we got to know each other better he’s just like a boy.”
