As viewers bid adieu to the year 2019, the star-studded cast members also shared their thoughts as they wrapped up this year by saying goodbye to the Netflix/JTBC series.
Lee Jung Jae on playing Jang Tae Joon: “I was happy acting as Jang Tae Joon, who challenged himself and changed during each and every episode. Thank you to the viewers who have enjoyed watching the drama for the long time of 6 months starting from season 1.”
Shin Min Ah on portraying skilled female politician Kang Seon Young: “This project was a process of challenging myself to play a character I haven’t been able to experience until now. It was a huge honour because I was able to act with many experienced actors. I won’t be able to forget the experience of receiving lots of support from viewers as the confident, politically skilled Kang Seon Young. I sincerely thank all of the actors and each and every member of the staff who worked together.”
Lee Elijah, who played Yoon Hye Won, said: “I sincerely thank the director, actors, writers, and staff. I’ll cherish the emotions and moments of your love for ‘Chief of Staff’ and Yoon Hye Won in my heart like a piece of poetry.”
ZE:A member Kim Dong Jun reflected on his character Han Do Kyung, sharing that, ” It feels strange because it’s a drama I participated in for 6 months. It was a drama that I will remember every moment of, and a drama where I really worked hard during every second and scene. I’ll become an actor who acts sincerely with the many experiences I learned through this series.”
Jung Man Sik on acting as Choi Kyung Chul, the chief of the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office: “The 2nd season of ‘Chief Of Staff’ is a meaningful project for me. It was a pleasure meeting the viewers through the portrayal of Choi Kyung Chul. I really want to say thank you to fellow actors as well as the staffs who worked alongside this drama.”
Veteran actor Kim Kap Soo on portraying the antagonist Song Hee Seop: “I felt so happy to play a fresh character like Song Hee Seop. I’ve worked with director Kwak Jung Hwan many times, but this project felt new. The atmosphere on set was really good while working for a long time together that I could finish filming comfortably. Thank you to viewers who watched while being immersed with us.”
Jung Woong In who acted as the character Oh Won Sik shared: “I played as Oh Won Sik with the belief that there was probably an aide out there like him who was envious of the more successful Jang Tae Joon. I’m thankful I was able to successfully complete it due to the support of many viewers, and would like to especially tell Kim Kap Soo that I learned a lot from him.”
Last but not least, Jo Bok Rae, who captured everyone’s attention with his portrayal of Yang Jong Yeol said: “I learned a lot while filming and it was a valuable experience. We were able to successfully complete the drama thanks to the younger and older actors, and the staff. Thank you to the writer for creating Yang Jong Yeol into a charming character, the director for creating a natural atmosphere on set where I could act comfortably which could’ve been awkward since I only joined the second season, and the viewers who adored Yang Jong Yeol.”
