Actor Lee Jun-young of Disney+'s 'Royal Roader' mentioned his chemistry with co-star Lee Jae-wook.

On the 26th, a production presentation for Disney+'s 'Royal Roader' was held at JW Marriott Dongdaemun Square Seoul in Dongdaemun-gu, Seoul. Director Min Yeon-hong, actors Lee Jae-wook, Lee Jun-young, and Hong Soo-ju attended the event.

'Royal Roader' is the story of minor leaguers trying to take the throne of Korea's largest conglomerate, which they wanted to have, become, and steal. Actor Lee Jun-young plays the role of Kang In-ha, who was born as the hidden child of the Kang-oh Group and tries to hide his pain by wielding wealth and power from an early age.

Lee Jun-young, who said he chose it because of the fun of the scenario itself, said, "This time, I played the role of a golden spoon. I thought I was far from a golden spoon, so of course I thought it was a dirt spoon character. Actor Lee Jae-wook also thought the same. The script itself was seamless. “I prefer scripts that are easy to read, and I think our script was like that.”

He appeared in various OTTs such as Netflix's 'DP' (2021), 'Mask Girl' (2023), and 'Wilderness' (2024), and was referred to as 'breaking the OTT seal'. Regarding his character Kang In-ha, Lee Jun-young said, "Kang In-ha's friend appears thoughtless and innocent on the outside, but it was fun to work on it because it was a role that allowed me to show a different side."

While collaborating with actor Lee Jae-wook, who played the role of Kang Tae-oh, who co-starred with him, he said, "Actually, I don't have much experience working with actors my age. I had a lot of expectations and a lot of worries about what it would be like. I was easily led by actor Lee Jae-wook. Like a dog raised by its owner. For example, when actor Lee Jae-wook looked tired, I felt like I wanted to be liked. I think it was reflected well in the characters. The downside was that I laughed too much, which resulted in NG. I laughed just by looking at his eyes," he said, expressing his affection.

‘Royal Lord’ will be released on Disney+ on February 28th.
