Sung Dong Il and Kim Soo-hyun worked together in the movie, Real.

South Korean actor Sung Dong Il has opened up about Kim Soo-hyun. The two worked together in the movie, Real.

The 52-year-old actor gushed about his co-star when he appeared on tvN's Taxi, along with Reply series producer Shin Won Ho. Dong Il said: "I worked with him for the first time [in 'Real']. He's a very uplifting person than you'd think. He's funnier and more of a jokester than me. He has great manners; he would always bow and greet others even when someone just one year older than him appears."

Adding on, Dong Il also talked about the time he first met EXO's D.O. and admitted that he was unaware of his popularity. He said: "However, even though he's such a busy kid, D.O., along with Lee Kwang Soo and Jo In Sung, came when my mother passed away and stayed with me for two nights and three days. Gong Hyo Jin stayed by my wife's side, holding her hand the entire time, throughout all three days."
