With memories of Misaeng still lingering in the hearts of many, Kang Ha Neul shared his thoughts on acting out the 19-year-old boy Harold in the play Harold & Maude.
The January issue cover of Scene Playbill, featuring Kang Ha Neul and costar and senior Park Jung Ja, conveys the message of ‘the beautiful communication between a 19-year-old boy and a grandmother.
In the interview, Kang Ha Neul said, “When I said that I will be doing a play during such a busy time, many people asked me if I’m crazy. But I was desperate for something that could hold me down and lead me to the way of learning, at a time when my thirst for learning had increased. And that was a play,” and shared his thoughts on returning to the play stage and determination to pull off all-night practices.
Meanwhile, Kang Ha Neul’s comeback play Harold & Maude will begin on January 9 at National Theatre of Korea.
