Actor Joo Jong-hyuk showed his respect for Park Eun-bin’s performance in “Extraordinary Attorney Woo”.
The August 19th broadcast of SBS Power FM’s “Park Ha-sun’s Cinetown” (hereinafter referred to as “Cinetown”) featured Joo Jong-hyuk, who played “master of trickery” Kwon Min-woo in ENA’s Wednesday-Thursday drama “Extraordinary Attorney Woo“.
In the drama, Joo Jong-hyuk took on the role of Kwon Min-woo, a fellow lawyer who has a yearning desire for success and is spiteful. Kwon Min-woo drew attention due to his love line with Choi Soo-yeon (Ha Yoon-kyung), who had been quarreling with him since the business trip to Jeju Island.
Regarding his chemistry with Ha Yoon-kyung, Joo Jong-hyuk confessed, “At the time of filming, I was already close enough with Ha Yoon-kyung. Maybe that’s why we got another chemistry. People around me said that we looked like an old couple when we filmed together. There were many comments that it was fun to see new things coming out while we were bickering.”
He also showed off his affection for actors Park Eun-bin and Kang Tae-oh, who worked together with him. In particular, Joo Jong-hyuk called Park Eun-bin “big senior”, “veteran actress” and expressed his respect, “I praised Eun-bin so much that my voice was cracking. I felt that she was really amazing.”
He talked about Kang Tae-oh, “A friend who always misses me. He always says he wants to see me. When the ‘Hanbada’ team gathers, Tae-oh often doesn’t appear. Compared to the team, we have fewer things to encounter, but he always says he wants to see me through text messages.”
Woo Young-woo’s final episode, which aired on August 18th, recorded 17.5% nationwide and 19.2% in the metropolitan area (Nielsen Korea, based on paid households), setting its own highest rating and marking a successful finish.
Meanwhile, Joo Jong-hyuk starred in various short films and independent films after his debut with the independent film “Nightmare”. Since 2018, he has been building filmography by appearing in dramas such as “Clean with Passion for Now”, “Drama Stage-Midnight”, “D.P.”, “The Veil”, “Yumi’s Cells” and “Happiness”.
