Kang Ha Neul Spontaneously Flies to Iceland to Join Cast of “Youth Over Flowers”
It has been revealed that actor Kang Ha Neul made a spur-of-the-moment trip to Iceland to join the cast of the next season of tvN‘s “Youth Over Flowers” for their winter trip!
It was previously announced that this season of “Youth Over Flowers” would star the trio of Jo Jung Suk, Jung Woo, and Jung Sang Hoon, of course led by renowned PD Na Young Suk. The group flew to Iceland to begin their epic adventure on November 25. However, it has now been announced that Kang Ha Neul joined them shortly after, as he left for Iceland following the Blue Dragon Film Awards on November 26.
Na Young Suk comments, “Kang Ha Neul was originally on the list of actors we wanted to cast for the Iceland trip, but because he had to attend the Blue Dragon Film Awards, I gave up on casting him. However, just in case, one of the producers asked him again as soon as the Blue Dragon Film Awards finished if he wanted to join the cast.”
Kang Ha Neul showed his spontaneous side by deciding to head to Iceland right away. “Since the decision was made right after the award ceremony, Kang Ha Neul headed to the airport in his tuxedo,” Na Young Suk says. “As his travel plans had been made so spontaneously, his only luggage was a plastic bag and a shopping bag. He arrived in Iceland 25 hours later, wearing his tuxedo.”
Na Young Suk adds, “Contrary to his image, Kang Ha Neul is enthusiastic and cheerful, and has received all the love of his hyungs. He shows some intelligence among ‘the dumb brothers’ who are clueless about traveling.” Na Young Suk previously shared that Jo Jung Suk, Jung Woo, and Jung Sang Hoon have called themselves “the dumb brothers” because they were always getting lost and making mistakes on their trip.
Kang Ha Neul, Jo Jung Suk, and Jung Woo returned to Korea from their Iceland trip on the afternoon of December 4, while Jung Sang Hoon arrived home the previous day due to his filming schedule.
The date of the premiere episode of “Youth Over Flowers” has yet to be decided, but it is slated to begin airing following “Three Meals a Day: Fishing Village.”
