Joo Ji Hoon has been confirmed for the upcoming SBS drama, “Five Fingers,” which marks his comeback to the small screen.
“Five Fingers” is to follow the currently airing “A Gentleman’s Dignity,” and is being produced and written by a star team of directors and writers.
“Five Fingers” is the story about how some troubled young adults overcome their past scars and make efforts to find their dreams and love. Joo Ji Hoon will play a talented pianist, who struggles with an unfortunate family situation.
Due to Joo Ji Hoon’s past drug scandals, some viewed this casting unfavorably. However, the head director, Choi Young Hoon PD stated, “Joo Ji Hoon’s drama character has both good and evil in him and we thought Joo Ji Hoon’s soft but tough-guy charms were perfect for this role.”
Choi PD continued, “Since his role is a pianist, we needed someone with acting skills, as well as a basic knowledge and appreciation for music. Joo Ji Hoon plays piano, guitar and other instruments and is known to be a good singer so we are very excited.”
Joo Ji Hoon’s agency, Key East Entertainment stated, “Joo Ji Hoon is deeply reflecting upon his disappointing actions of the past. Because he is still very apologetic, he hesitated a lot about coming back to the small screen. But because the directors and writers were so keen on casting him for the drama, Joo Ji Hoon was able to join the cast.”
They continued, “We hope that Joo Ji Hoon will be pardoned for his past mistakes through his good acting skills, which he wishes to partake as if it’s his first time. He is determined not to let everyone down since many people have given him this great opportunity.”
“Five Fingers” is still in its casting process and will air after “A Gentleman’s Dignity.”
