South Korean actors Yeo Jin Goo, Lee Se Yeong, Kim Sang Kyung and more held a press conference to promote their drama The Crowned Clown in Seoul on January 3. Jin Goo promised that if the ratings for the show exceed 20.19 percent, he and Sang Kyung will go out and give free hugs on the street.

The drama is a remake of the 2012 film Masquerade, which is about a king who brings in a clown who looks exactly like him to serve as his double, in an attempt to thwart his enemies' murderous plans.

Jin Goo, who plays the roles of both the king and the clown, shared that he finally understood why the original movie's lead actor Lee Byung Hun was under so much pressure.

"At first, I really worried over whether I should take on this drama, but then I thought, how often would I get to play two characters at once?" he said. "So I plucked up the courage to say yes, and I hope audiences will like my acting."

When asked what it was like working with Se Yeong, Jin Goo gushed about her being a very kind and approachable senior on set from the very first day. Se Yeong also praised her co-star, saying, "I was concerned that he would feel uncomfortable because he's younger than me, but he is actually more mature than me and feels like an oppa (older brother)!"
