Kim Ji Hoon streaks through Myungdong
And no, that’s not a metaphor.
Actor Kim Ji Hoon actually had to streak through Seoul’s busy Myungdong district for his new show, Why Did You Come To Our House? (which premiered yesterday, the 28th). On press conference day for the new SBS Friday drama, Kim Ji Hoon described that scene as being the hardest to film — not only because of the personal embarrassment of running through a crowded street in only his boxers, but because of the cold weather. That, and:
“Myungdong was unusually crowded the day we filmed that scene. Because the scene needed to be shot from afar, the camera and staff were removed on a rooftop while I ran through Myungdong in my underwear, and we shot it four times.”
Kim Ji Hoon last acted in the popular KBS weekend drama Golden Age for Daughters in Law with Lee Soo Kyung, but it was his role as the scruffier Mr. Sexy (Hot Bedroom Eyes) Eun Tak in last year’s Flowers For My Life that caught my eye. (By the way, great drama. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen drama where there are absolutely no bad guys, much less one that’s so satisfying, complexly drawn — and morbidly funny.)
In Why Did You Come To Our House, Kim Ji Hoon plays a son-in-law who goes to live in the home of his wife’s rich family. The drama also stars Kim Jung Nan, Lee So Yeon, Kim Seung Soo, Oh Yoon Ah, and Jung Joon Ha.
