Moreover, the actor, who invited his family to watch him film his action scenes in “Moving,” made him a cool father figure to his children, as they saw him doing his stunts and flying in the air.
According to the actor, he was impressed with how the team executed his scenes, especially with difficult stunts like his.
“The moment I performed the scene where her feet were rising, I got a sense of how unconventional this scene would be. I think that as a human being and as an actor, an amazing moment unfolded that not everyone can have.”
He also took the interview as an opportunity to thank director Park In Je for considering him to be a part of the cast lineup. For him, the filmmaker “created a scene that will be remembered even after death.”
In the 20-episode K-drama, Jung Joon Hwa is among the North Korean army who went to South Korea in hopes of eliminating individuals with special abilities. They are afraid that the government will use these people against North Korea.
As for Joon Hwa, he has the same power as Kim Doo Shik, great combat skills, and the ability to fly.
Unfortunately for Kim Bong Seok and Jang Hee Soo, they are too weak and inexperienced to fight the North Korean Army.
