I hope you don’t feel shy and lose 7% of your body fat
Actor Kim Ji-hoon appeared in “Paper’s House: Joint Economic Zone” and told how he worked hard for the character.
Kim Ji-hoon told various stories in an interview with Netflix’s original series “Paper House: Joint Economic Zone” held online on the morning of the 1st.
“Paper House: Joint Economic Zone,” a remake of Spain’s popular series, is a drama about an unprecedented hostage robbery by genius strategists and robbers with different personalities and abilities against the backdrop of the Korean Peninsula ahead of unification.
In the play, Kim Ji-hoon played Denver, a former street fighter and a son of Moscow (Lee Won-jong), who had a long history of punching in illegal fighting.
Denver, who joined the gang after beating and chasing gamblers who used to give money as simple and emotional figures, reacts sensitively to stories about his mother who abandoned him, and Mi-sun (Lee Joo-bin), who is pregnant, is constantly on my mind.
On the same day, Kim Ji-hoon said, “I didn’t think I would play the role of Denver. I wanted to challenge myself, but personally, I thought the role of Denver would be the most fun if I acted. I wanted to participate when I heard about the production.”
“Through the role of Denver, I thought I could show a character that I haven’t shown much to the viewers who have seen my work so far.” When I first saw the script, I wondered how to adapt various characters and accidents in such a detailed and complicated composition, but I think it was made well to suit Korean sentiment.’
Kim Ji-hoon, who said he had a lot to prepare for the characters, including action scenes, bed scenes, and dialect lines, said, “Since Denver is a street fighter, I expected there to be a lot of action scenes, so I practiced Muay Thai long before filming.” I worked out a lot because I thought I needed to get the feeling on my body in advance, and I wanted to have more action scenes, but there weren’t as many as I thought,” he said with a smile.
“I heard that there was a bed scene, so I thought there would be exposure. At first, the director said, “Take off all your clothes, and I will wear a shocking bed scene.” So I thought that I should prepare without any problems.”
“When I showed myself, I thought I shouldn’t have any shame, so I went on a diet a lot,” said Kim Ji-hoon, who continued, “At the time of filming, the gym was closed because it was COVID-19, so I worked out with an iron bar in the playground in front of my house. I could do a lot of things with an iron bar,” he said with a smile.
“It’s a little funny for others to express what they express with their weight with their body fat, but they don’t usually weigh a lot.” It maintained body fat in the 7-8% range. Normally, it’s 11 to 12 percent,” he explained.
Regarding the bed scene with Lee Joo-bin, who played the role of Mi-sun, he said, “I just worked hard and filmed it really hard. I’ve been acting for a long time, but I’ve never seen such an aggressive bed scene. All we could think about was focusing on what we could do and doing our best,” he said.
“So the shooting ended earlier than I thought, but I couldn’t monitor the bed scene again. There is usually a time to monitor what he has played in the field, but Bedshin couldn’t bring himself to show it again. I was curious even after filming it, but when I saw it, I was very embarrassed.”
