Kang Ha Neul wishes to be a young father?

 Korean actor Kang Ha Neul is growing to become quite the regular visitor to our sunny shores.

The 26-year-old, who was in town less than a year ago, touched down in Singapore yesterday for a press tour and meet-and-greet to promote his upcoming dramaScarlet Heart.

Scarlet Heart is the Korean remake of the hugely popular Chinese drama of the same name. However, instead of being based in the Chinese Qing Dynasty, the Korean remake will be based on the Korean Goryeo dynasty instead.

At the press conference yesterday, Ha Neul was all smiles as he walked in. The actor confessed to feeling a little pressured because of the success of the original Scarlet Heart, but he enjoyed filming because of the stellar cast and crew, as well as his interesting role.

Speaking of his role, the actor had nothing but praises to sing of the eighth prince, Wang Uk. “I’m just someone who’s very ordinary, a boy-next-door. I’m not as smart or good in martial arts [as Wang Uk],” he revealed laughingly, when asked for a fun fact about himself.

Ha Neul later shared that he was exceptionally attracted to a certain part of his character’s role – the growth and self-discovery of his character. 

“Wang Uk was born as a prince, he wanted to explore and do a lot of different things, but couldn’t do so because of his birthright. Throughout the course of the show, he slowly learns and finds out what he wants to do in life, and I’m really attracted to that part, as it’s the process of finding out what you really want to do,” he mused.

Ha Neul also revealed that he wishes to try out roles that are vastly different from himself, as they can bring out traits that he personally doesn’t have.

The 26-year expressed his desire to act as a young father, revealing that he had once wondered what he could bring to the role. 

When asked if he would rather travel back in time or to the future, Ha Neul deliberated for a moment, before settling on his answer. 

“I’d go back in time, because I feel that what happens in the future is decided by the actions of your present self. So, I would rather travel back in time, so that I can alter and change what happens in the future.”

Ha Neul also amped up the anticipation for the premiere of Scarlet Heart by promising that it will be a visual feast for the eyes, with different camera angles, well-mastered colours and the full works.
