He then added, “I think both of our characters fit us well, as we both got into characters that bring out our own unique traits to life. There is a scene in Pirates where I tease Son Ye-jin and she nags at me. We joke a lot in real life so the scene was really familiar. It was as if we were in our own comfort zone and our chemistry is great. Personally, I’m happy we’re able to work together.” Meanwhile, when Son Ye-jin was asked about Kim Nam-gil, she said that Kim Nam-gil is just like Jang Sa-jung (Kim Nam-gil’s role in Pirates). She also said that in real life, he’s more talkative and fun. He is a bit of a klutz and is friendly. She then continued by saying, “The image of him up to now is all a lie. Since I’ve known that side of him from Shark, it was really comfortable working with him this time. In that sense, I think Jang Sa Jung fits him well.”
