(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Oh Myeong-eon = “It was a big task to depict the changes in Yitang. I don’t think I would have been able to do it if I had been less prepared or lacked confidence.”

Actor Choi Woo-sik’s acting was familiar and comfortable until the beginning of the recently released Netflix original series ‘Murderer.’ He plays the role of a friendly and spineless college student, which he has often played, and naturally draws viewers into the story.

As Lee Tang awakens his special ability, Choi Woo-sik’s acting begins to change dramatically. She transforms into an unfamiliar face that has never been shown before and leads the play in an unexpected direction.

Choi Woo-sik, whom we met at a cafe in Samcheong-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul on the 14th, said, “When the character of Yi-tang came to me, there was only one thing I was greedy for,” and “I wanted to convincingly portray the psychological change of Yi-tang, an extremely ordinary college student.”

Yi-tang, a college student with an easy-going appearance and a name that stands out anywhere, thinks, ‘This life is not subjective, but multiple choice.’ So he just did as he was told and lived helplessly.

The day Yi-tang, who has always endured and endured hardships, chooses to fight back for the first time, his life reaches a turning point.

He became a murderer by accidental choice, but due to an incredible coincidence, all evidence of the murder disappeared, and the man he killed turned out to be a serial killer who ‘deserved to die’ and had been wanted for 12 years.

Itang’s next murder was the same. Yi-tang, who has awakened his ability to distinguish between evildoers, begins to condemn the vicious criminals who have evaded man-made laws one by one. As he continues to kill, his sense of guilt gradually fades, and the distinction between the ‘condemner’ Yi-tang and the evildoers he punishes becomes blurred.

Choi Woo-sik emphasized that he placed emphasis on ‘ordinariness’ in expressing this ‘dark hero’ Lee Tang.

He said, “In the original webtoon, Yi-tang changes into a completely different person after awakening his abilities, but in the drama, Yi-tang is just Yi-tang even after the change.” He added, “If you portray the character in a one-dimensional way, as if he suddenly became a different person, it will be easy to act and it will be boring.” “It seemed like it,” he said.

Instead of accepting his unique gentle and youthful impression as a limitation, Wooshik Choi brought it to life as a key characteristic of the character.

He said, “I am a tough talker, and I have an image that I show on entertainment shows, so I think the public is most comfortable watching me when I act in a way that makes me look weak.” He added, “I think that kind of image is the kind of acting I am most comfortable with and the kind of acting I am best at.” He explained.

He then pointed out, “The Lee Tang in the original work, who seems to have become a human weapon, is something I don’t have yet, and it was different from what I thought the Lee Tang would look like in the drama.”

“Instead of focusing on external changes, I put a lot of emphasis on mental changes. I wanted to portray the feelings of Yi-tang, an ordinary college student, who has no choice but to play the role of a punisher while crying and eating mustard.”

Lee Tang, who identifies and kills ‘criminals who deserve to die’, but is not sure whether his ability is a coincidence or real, is different from other hero characters.

Choi Woo-sik said, “I didn’t act as Lee Tang thinking he was a dark hero.”

He said, “I don’t think Lee Tang was able to rationalize his murder until the end. If Lee Tang had that confidence, he would have become a much more monotonous character, and he wouldn’t have had that kind of face when he faced Toy (Son Seok-gu) at the end of the play.” “He added.

“I keep asking, ‘Is this right?’ I have this question, but the feeling keeps coming back, and Nobin next to him pushes Yi-tang, saying, ‘This is right.’ Yi-tang must have continued killing because he felt like he was being pushed to the edge.”

The drama ends with an open ending, showing the news that a violent criminal who had been avoiding the law has died.

Choi Woo-sik said, “The ending depends on the viewers’ interpretation,” but added, “As the actor who played Lee Tang, I think he will continue to live with the feeling of being pushed to the edge and punishing violent criminals even after he returns to Korea.”

Choi Woo-sik, who debuted in 2011 and appeared in the movies ‘Giant’, ‘Train to Busan’, ‘Okja’, ‘Parasite’, and the dramas ‘Hogu’s Love’ and ‘That Year We Were’, is an actor loved for his unique, quirky and cute characters.

When asked what it would be like if he had the ability to identify evildoers like Lee Tang, he thought seriously and answered:

“There is a person who eliminated illegal parking in an alley by reporting it over 1,000 times. If I have the same instinct as Lee Tang, I will work hard to report it like him and prevent crime.”
