On March 11, a “G.I. Joe 2” press conference was held at the Conrad Hotel in Yeouido, Seoul. The MC for the press conference was the celebrity Jeon Hyun Moo. The director of “G.I. Joe 2” (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) Jon Chu, and also the stars of the film Dwayne Johnson, D.J. Cotrona, and Adrianne Palicki also made an appearance.
Lee Byung Hun was asked, “What are your predictions on the popularity of ‘G.I. Joe 2.’” Lee Byung Hun replied, “I think that popularity is something that cannot be predicted. Currently, Korean films are in their prime. Although ‘G.I. Joe 2’ is a Hollywood film, I hope that you will still love it like Korean films because I am appearing in it.”
Lee Byung Hun added, “I make a lot more appearances in ‘G.I. Joe 2,’ compared to the first film. There are a lot more close-up scenes. It felt great. I hope that the Korean audience will feel what I did. Today is meant to be a place where I am supposed to publicize ‘G.I. Joe 2’ but I am worried that the broadcast of my appearance on ‘Healing Camp’ will overshadow ‘G.I. Joe 2.’”
