Interview translations (from news reports):

Cheondung when asked on his thoughts about becoming an actor:

I’ve had experience on a cable drama before, but I’ve never been on one that was aired on national television (for all the public to see), so I’m very nervous. I’m trying to study a lot. Although I lack a lot, I will work hard in order to come out well (on TV).”

When he was asked how he will hold up the image of a singer and a character in drama:

The concept we had when I was a singer in MBLAQ was sexy. In contrast, I will be taking on a pure and sickly role in the drama which is difficult. As of now, I don’t know if I will look healthy. In fact, because I have asthma, I think I’ll be able to do well. (drawing laughter from everyone)

He said:

It’s been a few months since I started to stand alone from MBLAQ, with a good director and good seniors, this new challenge becomes more of an excitement rather than a burden. And so I am spending everyday happily also preparing for a solo album. (adding good news for the fans who have been waiting)

What Director Kim Geunhong had to say about Cheondung being cast into the drama:

I didn’t know Park Sanghyun was MBLAQ Cheondung. When we first met at the first audition, there were 6 people who came and we gave them 5 minutes each. I even asked “Are you famous?” I was that ignorant. After a month, he was cast. He really suits the role of Kang Hyunseo. On set, the name ‘Cheondung’ doesn’t exist anymore. He memorizes a lot of dialogue at once and expresses it well.
