Honey Lee Talks About Difficult Action Scenes In New Film And Feeling Old
“Extreme Job” is a comedy about a team of detectives who start a chicken restaurant for an undercover drug-bust operation, but end up busier than ever when their chicken restaurant becomes famous for its food.
Talking about a particularly difficult action scene in the film, in which the cast has to sprint outside, Honey Lee said, “The heat wave in Korea in 2018 was the hottest in 100 years. We had to sprint in stifling heat, so everyone was constantly asking if we were okay. But I was so okay.”
When asked if it was her first experience with action, Honey Lee said it wasn’t. “It’s just that it didn’t do very well, but I was a fighter in the movie ‘Hit.'”
“But this time,” she said, “I really felt the passage of time. We were training at action school, and [Jin Seon Kyu], thinking about old times, ended up tearing a muscle in his thigh, and I was trying to be careful too, but I was laid out for three days.
