Joo Ji Hoon Juggles Family Responsibilities And His Job In Teasers For “The Item”
“The Item” is a new Monday-Tuesday mini-series from MBC about two people who try to uncover the secrets behind certain items with supernatural capabilities. Joo Ji Hoon plays Kang Gon, a prosecutor in the Seoul Central District who is known for disobeying his superiors in order to do the right thing.
In stills released on January 23, Joo Ji Hoon not only embraces the cold and razor-sharp aspect of his prosecutor job, but also shows a softer and warmer side to his character. The stills show him helping his 10-year-old niece get ready for school and looking down at her with a gentle smile. Although he is not a perfect uncle by any means, Kang Gon considers his niece the light of his life.
The production staff also shared that Joo Ji Hoon is very caring toward the child actress who plays his niece, Shin Lin Ah. “Whenever they’re filming together, he stays near her so he can talk to her and they can become closer. The chemistry between the fond uncle and the niece with a painful past will be one of the key points of ‘The Item.'”
“The Item” premieres on February 11 at 10 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki. Check out the trailer below!
