Whether you’re #TeamDosan or #TeamGoodBoy, you can’t deny that Start-Up actor Kim Seon Ho, aka Han Ji Pyeong, is one charming man. (Those dimples! That smile! That aura!) But did you know that before Start-Up aired, our favorite Good Boy was actually worried that people might “feel awkward” when they saw him on the drama, particularly because of his stint on the popular variety show 2 Days & 1 Night?

During a press conference with Netflix before the drama started airing, Kim Seon Ho was asked about how he was able to balance filming both Start-Up and 2 Days & 1 Night. He started off by sharing that the creators of the show were all very considerate of his schedule so he had no problems with that. He then added: “I do worry that people who have seen me in the variety series might feel awkward when they see my character, Han Ji Pyeong. I hope they will get used to my character with time and they can enjoy both me and my character Ji Pyeong.”

Kim Seon Ho also explained the similarities and differences between him and his Start-Up character: “Han Ji Pyeong is kind and has a good heart. In that regard we are similar. I’m not as mean with my words as Han Ji Pyeong. He’s straightforward and quite sharp-tongued to people to their faces and I can’t really be like that so that’s a difference between my character and me.” Don’t worry oppa, we love you no matter what!

Director Oh Choong Hwan also revealed that he’s actually a fan of 2 Days & 1 Night and he secretly met with the creators of the show to ask about Kim Seon Ho. “Hearing from the creators, I got to know about him more and got a good feeling about him,” he shared.

Kim Seon Ho’s 2 Days & 1 Night castmate, comedian Moon Se Yoon, actually made a cameo in one episode as the building guard who called him out because he didn't properly dispose of his plant! If you watch the scene again, you’ll notice Seon Ho *almost* broke his character while interacting with Se Yoon.
