The casting story of how writer Kim Eun Sook chose Lee Do Hyun to play Joo Yeo Jung of Netflix’s “The Glory” is attracting attention.
On Jan 23rd, a moment at the production presentation of “The Glory” on Dec 20th spread on many online communities. It was the story of what writer Kim Eun Sook said to actor Lee Do Hyun while casting him as Joo Yeo Jung.
At the production presentation, writer Kim Eun Sook said, “I remember my first meeting with Lee Do Hyun. At the first meeting, Lee Do Hyun said, ‘I don’t know why such a good work is coming to me. I don’t know why people like me. That’s why I’m afraid someday there will be a day when I fail,’ he told me.“
Writer Kim Eun Sook went on to say, “But if you fail while working with me, you’ll have an excuse.” “So I was able to persuade him to work with me,” she said, revealing what happened during Lee Do Hyun’s casting.
Netizens are reacting positively to this, saying, “That’s why she writes great romance comedy scripts,” “Lee Do Hyun in reality is also a romantic comedy male lead,” “Her confidence is backed by her ability.”
Lee Do Hyun debuted as the child version of Lee Joon Ho (Jung Kyung Ho) in the tvN drama “Prison Playbook” in 2017. Since then, he has appeared in many hit dramas such as “Hotel Del Luna,” “Sweet Home,” “18 Again,” and “Youth of May.”
In “The Glory,” Joo Yeo Jung, along with Kang Hyun Nam (Yeom Hye Ran), is a character who is a doctor and a helper of Moon Dong Eun (Song Hye-kyo). He wanted to avenge his father, who was killed by his patient. Joo’s vengeance will be portrayed in more detail in Part 2, which is scheduled to be released on March 10th.
Lee Do Hyun is about to release the movie “Pamyo”, a new film directed by Jang Jae Hyun about a feng shui master, a funeral director, a shaman, and a monk who were asked to relocate the tomb. The movie stars Choi Min Sik, Kim Go Eun, Yoo Hae Jin, and Lee Do Hyun.
