On 5/20/2012, "Chosun Daily (朝鮮日報)" Japan Branch releases an interview report on Jisuk.
The interview was conducted while Jisuk was visiting Japan to attend the "MC MEN Japan Fight Soccer Games" on 4/28.
In March, actor Suh Ji Suk, who led the drama "GLORIA", "MANNY", etc., just completed the sitcom "Highkick3" which had lasted for 6 months. This time, he visits Japan to prepare for his official fan club in Japan. The report interviews him to hear and talk about his memory of the said sitcom.
Q: "Highkick3" is your first situation comedy (sitcom). Was there any difference between it and those previous dramas you had performed in?
A: In this sitcom, I played an interesting role. Thus, I could face it relaxingly.
Q: So you felt happy even filming for it throughout midnights. How about your PE teacher role?
A: I would like to become a PE teacher since I was a child and therefore I was really glad to perform the role. However, as a matter of fact, since I had not played many scenes of teaching students in the sitcom, I felt a little bit regretful.
Q: How did you feel about the scene that Hasun left you? Hasun said that she felt "heart-aching" for that scene.
A: What if the script book I got for the last episode was about "parting"..... I felt fearful. Especially, my role is a man who would not express his weakness to her, very painful.
Q: If you were not the PE teacher Yoon Jisuk and instead you are Mr. Suh Jisuk, will you send of your beloved woman?
A: If that happens in reality, I will leave with her, won't I? I would rather choose that route due to my great love toward her than stay for my students.
Q: I heard that you exercise six days a week, like you are intoxicated in sports after you completed filming. Is it true?
A: I spend about 3 hours to play baseball, 4 hours to play basketball, and 4 hours to play soccer. Moreover, I spend about 4 hours to prepare for the sports competition. My schedules for exercising is even tighter than filming.
Q: How come you exercise wherever you go?
A: I love to exercise.... As I exercise, not only do I feel satisfied and joyfully but I also feel relaxed under stress. Since I don't drink alcohol, exercising gives me the feeling of keeping my body in good shape and balancing my mind. A healthy body is better than alcohol, right?
Q: Now, you are into your 30s. Do your thoughts change now, compared with your thoughts in your 20s?
A: In my 20s, I had tried various kinds of roles because I'd like to become a star. Now, I would rather become a real actor with substance than to be a star. I would not be restricted to play certain roles regardless of mediocre TV ratings.
Q: Which part of your face you like the most?
A: My face? Ummm .... I don't find any part satisfactory. If I have to point out a certain part, how about "the light from my eyes"?
Q: What's the feeling that you give people? Do those people unfamiliar with you think that it is difficult to get close to you?
A: 90% of my clothes are made of knitted material (laugh). My body frame looks big which makes me look like an athlete. Probably it is because I don't smile often so that people think that it is difficult to get close to me. Neither am I a scary person nor I am a disgusting person. Thus, feel free to say hello to me (laugh).
Q: What's the part of a woman attracting you? What type of a woman?
A: I like a woman who has beautiful feet. I am attracted by women having balanced physique. Moreover, I love to see my beloved woman showing great smiles.
Q: This time, you have your Fan Club in Japan set up to march forward. Do you plan to expand your career in Japan?
A: In Korea, my official Fan Club held a "10-Year anniversary, 2 Days 1 Night" event a while ago. At that time, my fans joyfully played various games together that left me impressive memory. It will be nice if I can have similar meeting with my Japanese fans of my Fan Club in Japan. Although I am not good at singing, I will practice Japanese songs so that I can sing Japanese songs in my future fan meetings here.
Mr. Suh Ji Suk's official Fan Club in Japan http://www.seo-jisuk.jp will be launched at 5:00pm, 6/1/2012.

电视剧 "GLORIA" 及 "MANNY" 等的主演演员徐智锡于今年三月结束为期半年的 sitcom "Highkick3~短腿的逆袭"， 现在在充电中。然而此次来访日本准备其日本 Fan Club 设立。本人与他谈到有关其电视剧的私人回忆。
问："短腿的逆袭" 是你首部 situation comedy (sitcom, 情景喜剧)，其与你到现在为止所演过的电视剧是否存在任何差异？
答：我花大约三小时打棒球，四小时打篮球，四小时踢足球 (笑) 。 平均花四小时为参加球赛准备。 比拍戏更紧密。
答：我喜欢运动 ... 一方面是自我满足喜欢，另一方面是舒缓紧张状态。因为我不喝酒，取而代之的，运动给我整理身体和平衡心理的感觉。 难道酒会比健康更好？
问：现在你步入三十岁了。 作为演员，比较你现在的想法与二十几岁时的想法， 是否有改变吗？
答：我的衣服90%是针织质料 (笑)。体格似乎也大，像个运动员。因为我平常不太笑，所以被认为难以接近。但实际上，我不是个恐怖的男人，也不是个讨厌的男人，请多关照 (笑)。
问：此次，在日本设立公式 Fan Club 重新出发。是否有想在日本发展？
答：在韩国时，我的 Fan Club 曾举办了 "十周年二天一夜" 的活动。当时大家一起玩游戏留下了深刻的印象。我想如果能与日本 Fan Club 的fans 有类似的活动，也是很好。我歌唱得不好，不过我会练习唱日文歌，希望能在影迷会中以日语展现日文歌。 徐智锡先生的日本 Fan Club 官网 http://www.seo-jisuk.jp 将于六月一日下午五时开放。
