Jo Jung Suk Talks About His First Villainous Role, Relationship With EXO’s D.O., And More
On January 23, Jo Jung Suk participated in an interview via V Live to promote his upcoming film “Hit-and-Run Squad.”
“Hit-and-Run Squad” is a film about a hit-and-run police task force that chases an out-of-control businessman who loves to speed. Jo Jung Suk will play the role of the troublesome businessman Jung Jae Chul. With this character, the actor is taking on his first-ever villainous role.
Jo Jung Suk said, “This role is much different from all my previous roles. I assume many of you know already, but Jung Jae Chul is a villain.” He continued, “‘Hit-and-Run Squad’ holds a special place in my heart. I’m looking forward to it.”
He explained, “I’m made to try out new things. I am very adventurous, so I really wanted to take on the role in ‘Hit-and-Run Squad.’ The reason I found the role of Jung Jae Chul attractive was because I thought, ‘This is not a dangerous person. He is a weird person.'”
When asked to choose an actor he would like to adopt as his younger brother, Jo Jung Suk picked EXO’s D.O. The two worked together in the 2016 film “My Annoying Brother.” The actor said, “Do Kyung Soo is like a younger brother to me. I think it was because of our roles [as brothers] in the film.”
He continued, “Lee Je Hoon is younger than me, but he feels more like a friend. For Ryu Jun Yeol, we are enemies in the film, so we have an antagonistic relationship. I adore him, but our roles do affect our relationship in real life to some extent.”
“Hit-and-Run Squad” will premiere on January 30. Check out a teaser here!
