“It was so heart-wrenching. I love her, but it’s heartbreaking that she doesn’t understand my feelings. I think that’s how the tone came out”, the actor added, explaining his character’s emotions.

Nam Goong Min also discussed why he worked out while preparing for “My Dearest” ,’ revealing, “I bulked up to 82kg for ‘The Veil,’ but I lost weight and didn’t have muscles for ‘My Dearest’. However, the writer called and asked, ‘Can we insert a scene where you take off your top?'”

Recalling the moment, he said, “Since refusing because it’s hard to build muscles would ruin the team’s atmosphere, I said, ‘I’ll create fashion muscles.’ So, I started working out around 4 am at home, consistently for about a month, 30 to 40 minutes each time.”

The actor also amazed everyone by saying, “I lost weight to about 65kg. I thought Lee Jang-hyun (Nam Goong Min’s character in “My Dearest”) should be muscular because he’s good at fighting, so I worked hard on exercising with love for the role.”
