Q: It’s an odd story. “Link: Eat, Love, Kill” has an unusual title, and the plot that has been revealed raises even more questions about the drama. It’s a fantasy romance in which a man experiences a range of emotions from a strange woman.
Yeo Jin-Goo: When I connect with the emotions of another person, such as joy, sadness, and fear, I feel those emotions vividly even when I am a long-distance away. It’s not like I have a superpower that allows me to connect with that person at any time; it’s a phenomenon in which another person’s emotions unexpectedly dominate all of my emotions.
Moon Ga-Young: A hint appears later in the drama. Some may consider our drama to be a fantasy, while others may not. It will be determined by the viewer.
Q: In the drama, “Link” is a secret transition phenomenon that occurs between a chef and a restaurant employee. What would it be like to feel someone’s emotions against their will?
Yeo Jin-Goo: I was a little nervous when I first started filming. My character is forced to express sadness when he is not sad, and he is forced to laugh when he is not in the mood to laugh. As an actor, one of the most difficult situations is when there is a lot of change, so I was hesitant to join the drama. I thought to myself for some time and decided to join the drama. Following that, I talked with the director and writer about how to show these strange things.
Q: Do you want your emotions to be linked to a person if you truly love that person?
Yeo Jin-Goo: I’m not interested. Regardless of how much I adore that person, my life is my own territory. I should have the right to fully express my feelings, thoughts, values, and so on to others.
Moon Ga-Young: I’m interested in learning anything I can about the other person, and I’m curious about his condition, so I might consider having that “link” at some point. However, as Jin-Goo stated, not knowing everything is beneficial to the other person. Someone would undoubtedly be harmed if I knew everything. Emotions are also very personal matters. Wouldn’t telepathy work to some extent if you truly loved someone? You’ll get a good idea of what it’s like.
Q: What type of romance do you believe is ideal?
Moon Ga-Young: What I like is the feeling of security. A soothing soulmate. I also like the term “romantic.” An example of romance for me is, “I’m going to go home after work and eat fried chicken with that friend.” Someone I’d like to share that moment with. A man who fits the word romantic.
Yeo Jin-Goo: I’ve heard we have the same MBTI type. We must have similar tendencies, I suppose. I like the word “romantic.”
The new drama “Link: Eat, Love, Kill” starring Yeo Jin-Goo and Moon Ga-Young will premiere on tvN on June 6th.
