Astro’s Cha Eun Woo has delivered yet another impressive transformation of his on-screen persona. In the latest original series on TVing, “Island,” Eun Woo demonstrates his exceptional acting prowess with skillful finesse.
In both Part 1 and Part 2 of ‘Island,’ Cha Eun Woo expertly embodies the character of Yohan, a gifted exorcist who grapples with the emotional aftermath of slaying his own brother-turned-demon. Eun Woo deftly navigates the intricate complexities of Yohan’s evolving psyche, as he vows to seek vengeance for the tragic loss he suffered as a child.
According to Cha Eun Woo, he and the character Yohan share a playful nature. However, when it comes to exorcising and carrying out missions, Yohan possesses an impressive duality of strength and depth. Despite his youthful looks, he commands a strong and confident presence. In contrast, Eun Woo doesn’t consider himself a very masculine person and lacks the same level of social ease as Yohan. To overcome this difference, he put in a conscious effort to make himself more friendly or approachable.
In response to the perception that his acting abilities may have been underestimated due to his appearance, Cha Eun Woo shares, “The more I act, the more challenging it becomes. However, I approach it with a humble mindset and strive to express myself with sincerity through my work. Ultimately, it’s about putting in the effort and hard work to continue to grow as an actor.”
When asked to rate his own acting skills and appearance, Cha Eun Woo responded, “I would say it’s in the middle, perhaps a 50 out of 100. I tend to be critical of myself. As for my appearance, I give it a 50 because there are many people who possess a remarkable coolness and unique charm.”
The announcement of a live-action version of ‘Island’ has piqued the interest of both original fans and the general public. However, there has been some criticism surrounding Part 1, with some feeling that it failed to capture the essence of the original work.
In response to this feedback, Cha Eun Woo expressed, “It hurts sometimes when the response is not what we hoped for. Nevertheless, we poured our hearts into creating the best possible adaptation and will strive to improve in areas where we can. Of course, there are always areas where we wish we could have done better.”
Meanwhile, Island’s second part, featuring six new episodes, is set to be released on February 24th.
