The first filming of Kim Hyun Joong’s upcoming drama “City Conquest” took place on July 10 in Japan. Kim Hyun Joong, who plays the lead role Baek Mir, showed up in much slimmer shape, apparently having shed over 7% body fat for the shooting.
In the still cuts released on July 16, Kim Hyun Joong does seem to have dropped some weight, looking to be in even better shape than his previous “Lucky Guy” promotions. According to local reports, Kim Hyun Joong followed a strict diet and substantially increased his body muscle to play the lead role featuring a lot of action scenes.
“City Conquest” is the drama adaptation of the popular 90s comic book series, which published over 6 seasons and sold over 10 million copies. The filming will take place in Japan, China, the U.S., Singapore, and Switzerland, with the first episode expected to air at the end of the year.
