Joo Ji Hoon Compares “The Item” With “Along With The Gods” And Recalls Past Dramas
Joo Ji Hoon talked about why the CGI scenes in “The Item” are harder than those in “Along with the Gods.” He explained, “Since ‘Along with the Gods’ was set in a virtual space called the underworld, there was relatively a high degree of freedom in acting. But ‘The Item’ is a work that expresses the story of the existing world, so it’s more difficult to act.” Jin Se Yeon commented, “I could see his familiarity with CGI acting.”
Joo Ji Hoon and Jin Se Yeon had previously acted together in the 2012 drama “Five Fingers.” She praised him, saying, “Even though time has passed by, he hasn’t changed.” Joo Ji Hoon joked, “I didn’t improve?,” making everyone laugh, and Jin Se Yeon corrected, “Your appearance hasn’t changed.”
It is Joo Ji Hoon and Kim Kang Woo’s second time acting together as well. They had appeared in the 2015 movie “The Treacherous” together. Kim Kang Woo said, “At that time, I was the king and he was a vassal, so I only saw his palanquin. I had no idea he was this tall.” Joo Ji Hoon commented, “This time, I can act while making eye-contact with my beloved friend Kang Woo, so I’m happy. Just like he did in ‘The Treacherous’, he plays a mad character in ‘The Item’, and I was amazed after I saw him acting with such detail.”
Joo Ji Hoon’s popular MBC drama “Goong” was also mentioned, and he shared, “MBC is a warm and grateful place to me.”
“The Item” airs every Monday and Tuesday at 10 p.m. KST.
