Actor Joo Won opens up why he joined the cast of ’1 Night 2 Days’ and what he looks for in a woman.
The ‘Vacation’ special episode was broadcasted on the July 29th episode of KBS ’1 Night 2 Days’ and on the episode Joo Won revealed some interesting things about him.
Kim Jong Min and Joo Won were waiting for the dinner bokboolbok to start when Kim Jong Min asked Joo Won what convinced him to join ’1 Night 2 Days’.
Joo Won answered, “I was a little envious when I heard Seung Woo hyung was joining. The variety aspect didn’t really matter to me, I was just envious that he was part of the members.”
Kim Jong Min also asked, “Tell me about your ideal type”, to which Joo Won answered, “I like a woman who has concept of things. The very basic things are very important to me. It’s important that she’s good to her elders. I think about that point a lot.” (Although things are changing fast in South Korea, respect to the elders is still an important aspect of the culture. Some people misinterpret “Being good to elders” in Korea as being obedient but that’s not it. Joo Won’s statement pertains more to being polite and respectful in general terms and nothing too specific).
Kim Jong Min continued to ask, “Does ’1 Night 2 Days’ help in your acting?”, but then bokboolbok got started and Joo Won didn’t have a chance to answer Kim Jong Min’s question.
