Although filming was tough, I feel like my efforts were repaid by receiving the awards. Because of receiving these awards, I think I have to work much harder from now on.”
When asked about the healing drama “Good Doctor” which depicted how a savant pediatrician grows and overcomes prejudice from people around him, Joo Won said “In this drama, rather than the big operation scenes, it depicts the warm bonds and love with children. I played the role of Si On, with his growth, all people around him are also growing. In a sense, it is a growing drama and also a healing drama. Because it is focusing on the feelings of the characters, I think this is the highlight of the drama.”
