There are two ways to look at Hong Jong Hyun. The powerful star model, the new star actor who comes and goes between TV and the big screen.
People remember “Hong Jong Hyun” for fashion programs more than for my films or dramas. “Petorialist” and “Style Log” which ended recently are on everyone’s lips. I often heard that my dog Heron (sp?) and I look alike. I think my next project will be a drama. I hope the audience will remember me through this drama.
It’s surprising how people are often mistaken about me. It’s really great that they think of me as someone outgoing. In real life, I’m awfully shy around strangers, so I don’t easily get close to people I meet for the first time. When people work on TV programs, the introvert usually become extrovert, in my case, I feel like I’ve become even quieter. It’s because of the stress, maybe? That’s why I found that one thing I can focus on. When I work out to the point to sweat like crazy sometimes, I get no miscellaneous thoughts.
