Jung Eun Ji And Co-Stars Reveal That Actors Fainted During Scenes For New Horror Film
The film is based off a webtoon of the same name and tells the story of the strange experiences that befall the members of a supernatural mystery club when they enter a haunted house seeking evidence of a radio frequency that calls ghosts. The film is directed by Yoo Seon Dong and stars Jung Eun Ji, INFINITE’s Sungyeol, Choi Yoon Young, Shin Joo Hwan, and Jung Won Chang.
Jung Eun Ji has risen as a “horror queen” in her role as So Hee, a girl who possesses the ability to see ghosts. Sungyeol — who has gained acting experience through dramas such as “D-Day” and “Hi! School: Love On” — plays Sang Yeop, who keeps this secret to the end.
During a press screening for the movie held on May 20, Jung Eun Ji and Choi Yoon Young highlighted a scene in which Jung Eun Ji’s character is performing necromancy on Choi Yoon Young’s character. Jung Eun Ji stated, “I hit Choi Yoon Young with a branch so many times. I had to actually hit her for the scene to be realistic, so it couldn’t be helped.” She added, “I felt so sorry towards her. It was to the point that I got nauseated while shooting that scene. I couldn’t lift my arms for a week.”
Choi Yoon Young responded, “It might be because [Eun Ji] uses her body well, but it didn’t hurt when she hit me. We relied on each other while filming. I fainted in the middle due to hyperventilation, but I think we depended on each other throughout the shoot.”
In a broadcast through V Live on the same day, Jung Eun Ji revealed that yet another co-star fainted while shooting a scene. When asked if there was any particular moment that she remembered from filming, she replied, “Sungyeol was choking me, but he was the one that fainted.”
Sungyeol wasn’t present during the broadcast as he is currently serving in the military, so Jung Eun Ji explained, “It was a closed-off and narrow space with lots of people. Sungyeol was putting a lot of strength into his face, and because of that he became anemic and suddenly collapsed. That moment was so shocking.”
“0.0MHz” will show in Korean theaters starting May 29.
