Meanwhile, the actor, who is dating miss A's Suzy Bae, in an interview with Cosmopolitan Korea's cover opened about love and whether he would sacrifice himself for love like his character did in the fantasy drama series The Legend of the Blue Sea.
"It may be very difficult to keep the virtues of purity, passion and sacrifice of love in real life but if I were in the same situation with the drama, I would do my best to keep my love," he said in the interview.
"The kind of love that one can create positive energy toward each other's work or every part of life through the stability that love gives. I think it is also important to keep oneself as they are. I try to see others as they are and also to show myself as I am," he further explained about the ideal relationship.
