Jang Hyuk Transforms into a Korea’s Daniel Craig
Jang Hyuk will present action sequences in the new KBS Wednesday/Thursday drama “IRIS 2.“
“IRIS 2” is to feature Jang Hyuk as NSS (National Security Service) team leader, Jung Yoo Gun, with charismatic attributes delivering espionage action.
To prepare for the role, it’s been said that Jang Hyuk studied “007 Quantum of Solace’s” James Bond, portrayed by Hollywood actor Daniel Craig. His eyes alone give way to the intense complexity adding onto his peculiar aura. Currently filming in various international locations like Hungary, Jang Hyuk is receiving lots of positive feedback from “Die Hard 5” staff and the entire staff as a whole.
The actor stated, “Jung Yoo Gun’s psychological ability is crucial in that he can shift between logic and emotion, which allows the audience to be completely immersed in his character.” He added, “In addition to the fancy action sequences, I would like to focus more on the story line than highlighting the features of Yoo Gun.”
In “IRIS 2,” the story picks up three years after the scene “IRIS 1” left off – after the death of one of the best NSS special agents, Kim Hyun Joon (Lee Byung Hun). New recruit members, Jung Yoo Gun (Jang Hyuk), Ji Soo Yeon (Lee Da Hae), Yoo Joong Won (Lee Bum Soo), Choi Min (Oh Yeon Soo), Suh Hyun Woo (Yoon Doo Joon), Kim Yeon Hwa (Lim Soo Hyang), and Yoon Shi Hyuk (Lee Joon), along with Baek San (Kim Young Chul), and Park Chul Young (Kim Seung Woo), arrive as intensity builds up between IRIS and NSS teams. This will be an action-packed drama, as the members’ true identities and secrets from the first season are to be revealed.
