Below is a Q&A with Choi Seong-guk.Q. Could you please fill in the blank space in ‘I Am a ___ Lover of Joseon’? What kind of lover are you?
I have never thought of myself as a ‘lover’. You can say, ‘I am not a lover of Joseon, I am a man of Joseon.’ I'm just doing what I need to do according to the situation. We participate in marriage, pregnancy, and childbirth in accordance with our roles as husbands and men.

Q. This is the same role as the starting point of ‘Joseon’s Lover Season 2’. Please tell us how you feel about becoming a father and returning to ‘Joseon’s Lover Season 2’.
Since I've been filming since season 1, I don't physically know the difference between 1 and 2. It wasn't just that it wasn't being broadcast, but it had been filming since April. From my point of view, I have been living my life, and my life is captured in ‘The Lover of Joseon’. I also feel like this program is an ‘entertainment version of human theater.’ I didn't get married because of the show, and I didn't get pregnant or give birth because of the show, so I think the production team of 'Joseon's Lover' is just keeping my story in silence.

Q. How has your daily life changed since you had your first son?
I am currently raising children as a typical Korean husband would. The same goes for my wife. My wife is breastfeeding and is always next to the child. I can't leave it to someone else. To put it to the extreme, neither my wife nor I have had a personal life at all for three months. In the past, I would eat whatever I wanted to eat and go wherever I wanted to go, but now there is no such thing as going to a restaurant or doing anything I want for personal reasons. When there are no movies, dramas, or broadcasts, it's like a vacation, and I haven't been able to enjoy that since my child was born. I am doing my best for my child.

Q. Please tell us what kind of side you plan to show through ‘Joseon’s Lover Season 2’ and what you want viewers to feel through this program.
I have never tried to show a certain side of myself. I'm just living my life, and I don't even know what parts the people next to me have included. There have been many dramatic events in my life over the past year. Getting permission to get married, having a wedding, getting pregnant, and giving birth all happened in one year. It was an event that occurred over exactly 13 to 14 months. We are working to resolve this event smoothly and smoothly. That is included in the program.

So, I have never tried to show what I look like. I'm just trying hard to get through it. As I said before, events such as going to get permission, receiving permission, wedding, honeymoon, newlywed house interior design, pregnancy, childbirth, etc. are all not being done because of the program. I say it's like an 'entertainment version of human theater' because it's just a reality that captures my movements from the side. I hope viewers will feel comfortable watching and thinking, 'This is a period where Choi Seong-guk is going through various events, but he is accepting it in this way and moving on.' I never tried to add stimulation, laughter or crying or emotion.

Q. When you go to propose and when you wait for the birth of your first child, these two moments can be said to represent seasons 1 and 2 of ‘Joseon’s Lover’. Which moment were you more nervous?
It's a different kind of trembling. The first feeling of trepidation was something like, ‘If you reject me, I will try as hard as I can. I will try my best.’ It felt a bit like I was going to war, and the second tremor made me feel worried and anxious, but there was nothing I could do. There is nothing the man can do other than stand by. Childbirth and postpartum care are entirely the woman's responsibility. In particular, the birth process was a moment when I felt helpless while just watching from the side. Born as a man, I watch without being able to do anything as a man.

So, if the first was a tremor of a combative mind, the second was a tremor of regret that I could not do anything for him. All I could say was to cheer up and there was nothing I could do. That's why the two were different tremors. In the drama, he is shaking in front of the hospital and then runs away when he hears a 'mite' sound. This seems really dramatic. In real life, rather than hearing a baby cry, 'Is your wife okay?' Because this thought came to me first.

Season 2 of ‘Joseon’s Lover’ is scheduled to air in December.
