According to the report, Jun Ji Hyun kept the pregnancy news quiet due to movie promotions for “Assassination,” which premieres today, July 22. Another source stated, “The movie is business, and the pregnancy is personal. All the actors and staff worked very hard on the movie, and we were worried that the pregnancy news would steal the spotlight.” The source went on, and said, “She couldn’t become a liability to the movie because of the pregnancy, so she has attended all promotions as long as it was not an issue to her health.” So far, Jun Ji Hyun has carried out roughly 50 interviews with various media outlets, among other promotions.
