one in brand new, multiple articles interview with Play, Wai talked about what it was like to portray police officer Joon Ho in the series, what attracted him to the role and his hopes for the future of the hit TV show.
Wai shared that although Joon Ho’s character was “incredibly charming” when he first read the script, the character didn’t have much screen time. “He had his own story and played the role of presenting various events to the audience,” said Vai, translated as sumpy. “He was honest and determined, and there was character with the best sense of justice.”
However, Vai also spoke about the difficulty of the role, which required him to “act alone” for most of his scenes. “I felt a lot of pressure to lead each scene myself. However, I think I was able to complete it because the director and the staff members led me well,” he said.
Elsewhere during the interview, Vai also opened up about the prospect of a second season for the show, and her personal hopes of returning to the series. Wai’s character arc ended inexplicably for Jun Ho, when he was shot and fell off a cliff.
“My hope is that season two comes out, Joon Ho returns alive, and the story with Joon Ho’s brother is well resolved,” Wei said. “I really want Joon Ho to live. But it really can’t be predicted. Only the director knows, [but] I want to be and appear in season two.”
