On-screen, he is known as the cool Grim Reaper from Goblin, a.k.a Gong Yoo’s partner-in-crime. In real life, Lee Dong Wook is just as charismatic, but funnier, albeit withthe same deadpan brand of humour.
Although his answers at the press conference were nothing juicy, he seemed to be in his element at the fan meeting, which took place on Saturday night, hours after the press conference. It’s clear that the actor relishes the presence of his fans, and did his best to meet fans’ demand, including dancing to TWICE’s “TT”, despite saying “I’m to old to be [dancing to] ‘TT’.”
He even revealed a surprising fact about his kiss scene with Yoo In Na that was shot in the cafe – the kiss wasn’t supposed to happen. He said, “… There wasn’t supposed to be a kiss scene, it was an ad lib. [I added in myself.] Sunny (Yoo In Na’s character) and Grim Reaper had no happy scenes; we usually meet and cry, so I asked the production team if I could add that scene to make it brighter. If you watch it closely, I kissed her first, but the second time, she pulled me in to kiss her, though you can’t see her hand in the screen.”
However, the crying Grim Reaper you see on the screen is nothing like his real-life personality. He said, “In my real life, there’s no tears. I only cry when I’m acting. If I didn’t act for a year, I don’t think I would even cry once.”
