Exclusive Interview: “Seasons Of Blossom” Cast Talks Characters, School Lunches, Favorite Music, And More

Along with the recent premiere of “Seasons of Blossom”, the cast members took the time to share some insights behind the scenes!

Based on a popular webtoon, “Seasons of Blossom” tells the story of love and friendship between 18-year-olds at Seoyeon High School. The drama shows the butterfly effect that occurs from a tragic incident that occurred six years ago and that begins to affect today’s teenagers living in the present. In the role of “teenagers from the past,” Seo Ji Hoon plays Lee Ha Min, who seems cheerful on the outside but can be quite cynical, while So Ju Yeon represents the shy but strong Han So Mang with her elegant charms. “Teens Today” stars Kim Min Kyu as Lee Jae Min, the most popular student at Seoyeon High who always puts on a smiling face, Kang Hye Won as Yoon Bo Mi, the high school queen who is kind and pretty, and Yoon Hyun Soo as Choi Jin Young, who seems tough on the outside but is unexpectedly kind.

Read our exclusive interview with the actors below:

If we talk about percentage, how similar are you to your character from “Seasons of Blossom”?

seo ji hoon: Hm… I think around 60 percent.

So Ju Yeon: I think I’m 50 percent similar. What we have in common is that we find happiness in the little things and that we live enjoying what we can do in the present instead of worrying about the future.

Kim Min-kyu: I think 50 percent. My character, Jae Min, seems very bright and lively, but he is full of deep emotional scars inside of him. His brightness and vivacity are very similar to mine, but Jae Min’s inner feelings of hiding emotional scars from him and protecting himself by creating boundaries with others are part of his personality developed from his personal pain. of the.

kang hye won: Four. Five%?

Yoon Hyun Soo: 10 percent…? At first glance, it looks like we have a similar air, but I think there are actually a lot of different aspects overall. What we have in common is that [mi personaje es] short, has a little sister, and his face and ears turn red when they shake hands…?

What was the most difficult thing about playing your character?

seo ji hoon: It was surprisingly difficult to play my character being brilliant.

So Juyeon: I had to show a different performance when my character is a student and when she is a teacher, since that was difficult, I tried to stay alert and not lose concentration to differentiate my emotions.

Kim Min-kyu: When I work on a project based on a webtoon, I look at the original webtoon and think about the personality and characteristics of the character. However, with “Seasons of Blossom,” many changes were made to the characters’ attitudes and relationships as two parts of the webtoon were adapted together. There were many changes in Lee Jae Min’s character, and the director said that he had become the most difficult due to the adaptation, so I felt some pressure. However, constantly asking questions and arguing with the director allowed me to gradually immerse myself in and absorb the character of Jae Min.

kang hye won: Expressing Bo Mi’s emotions!

Yoon Hyun Soo: Jin Young is a character who usually doesn’t have a wide range of emotions, but he has charms that can be discovered if you look closely, so I tried very hard to express those aspects as much as possible. An example of this could be his warmth, which doesn’t show on the surface.

Of the actors in “Seasons of Blossom”, which first impression did you find most memorable?

seo ji hoon: Actress Oh Yu Jin who plays Kang Sun Hee. I was surprised because she was perfectly in tune with the webtoon character.

So Ju Yeon: Actor Seo Ji Hoon. I had a script reading session with Ji Hoon before meeting the other actors, and he treated me comfortably from the first time we met, so we were able to get close quickly. Thanks to that, our chemistry was good on set as well.

Kim Min-kyu: All the actors were memorable to me. I especially remember when I met the actors who play the second-year students of Seoyeon High School in class 5. When we first met, I was glad to see them as I feel when I meet friends from my school days. Since I felt that from our first meeting, I felt slightly relieved and happy thinking, “I will also be able to enjoy filming this drama.”

kang hye won: [Yang] Yu Jin, who plays Ji Hye.

Yoon Hyun Soo: When I saw [Shin] ju hang ya [Lee] Jae Sung, who play Jin Young’s friends Ui Joon and Tae Jin, along with [Oh] Yu Jin, who plays Sun Hee, I really thought they were straight out of the webtoon. when i saw [Kang] Hye Won, who plays Bo Mi, I thought, “She’s so pretty.”

What do you usually do during breaks on set?

seo ji hoon: I had many days where I mainly filmed with So Mang (So Ju Yeon), so I talked and joked with So Mang.

So Ju Yeon: In addition to the emotional scenes, during breaks in shooting, I would chat and have fun with the crew members I worked with, and we would talk about my character together. On non-shooting days, I tend to exercise or keep looking for input that keeps reminding me of the image of my character.

Kim Min-kyu: I usually revise the script. To not lose sight of my emotions [para la escena], I constantly check it as I read the script. I also hang out with the actors and share a lot of conversations. Sometimes I also took a little nap. (laughs)

kang hye won: I have fun with the friends I act with.

Yoon Hyun Soo: During breaks, we play phone games together (I’ve won them all), record videos together and take photos. I also remember that Bo Mi (Kang Hye Won) and I would joke around whenever we got the chance… haha.

What was your favorite subject in school?

seo ji hoon: I liked the fine arts and sports, such as physical education, art and music.

So Ju Yeon: I liked Japanese. at first i liked it [la asignatura] because I liked the pronunciation and the teacher, but then I wanted to study it more deeply, so I entered the Japanese language department.

Kim Min-kyu: What I liked the most was the story. Ever since I was young, I liked to read historical manhwa (Korean comics). Therefore, naturally, I acquired knowledge of history. In particular, during exam periods, it was to such an extent that he almost memorized all the history books. As they say: “You see as much as you know”, [la asignatura] it gradually became more interesting as it had a broader vision.

kang hye won: [Disfrutaba] of the subjects with memorization.

Yoon Hyun Soo: What I liked the most was Physical Education and English.

What was your favorite menu at school?

seo ji hoon: I’m not picky so I enjoyed eating everything!

So Ju Yeon: Sautéed sausages and vegetables. We were always short of the sausage side dishes so I always wanted more. it was a pity [que no pudiéramos comer más].

Kim Min-kyu: The school lunches were all delicious. Therefore, more than having a favorite meal, he had a favorite day. What I liked the most were the Wednesday menus. Wednesdays were “no leftover days” so it was the day that offered the most delicious side dishes so there was no leftovers. I remember even eating twice when a particularly delicious meal came out.

kang hye won: Spaghetti.

Yoon Hyun Soo: Spaghetti!

What is the first drama you remember enjoying when you were young?

seo ji hoon: It was “Stairway to Heaven”.

So Ju Yeon: “Pasta”. In the drama “Pasta”, there is a scene of Gong Hyo Jin making and eating aglio e olio, and he ate it so deliciously and adorable in that scene that it is still my favorite food.

Kim Min-kyu: My father loved to watch traditional historical dramas. Watching those historical dramas that my father used to watch when I was young, I ended up falling in love with them too. Maybe because of that, more than because of a particular drama, I want to say that I liked to see the genre of traditional historical dramas.

kang hye won: “Coffee Prince”.

Yoon Hyun Soo: “Reply 1988”. It’s the drama that made me dream of being an actor.

What song do you like to listen to these days?

seo ji hoon: I enjoy listening to Giriboy’s “Let’s Not Love Each Other”.

So Ju Yeon: “Glimpse of Us” by Joji. It’s a song I often hear on set.

Kim Min-kyu: I like listening to Lee Seung Yoon’s “The Giving Tree”. The song is very pretty. I think I always end up listening to it at least once a day.

kang hye won: “After LIKE” by IVE.

Yoon Hyun Soo: I think I listen to Nerd Connection and AJR songs a lot.

What is your TMI (plus information) for the day?

seo ji hoon: I woke up at 4 pm today…

So Ju Yeon: In order to regain my lost stamina, I went to exercise, and ate a lot of supplements.

Kim Min-kyu: I have traveled to my hometown and am exercising a lot here as well.
