Jang Hyuk recently made his comeback with the movie “Tomb of the River.
Jang Hyuk is famous for his strong image in action movies and dramas. In fact, he was once the most popular young star between the late 90s and 2000s for his youthful character of a rebellious young man.
However, there was a time when he was considered a nameless actor. Jang Hyuk once confessed that despite having an agency, he was completely ignored by everyone there during his newbie days. Enduring everything, he decided to make more than 20 hot dogs every day for the company’s staff to get them to notice his presence.
At that time, most people around Jang Hyuk judged that he had no potential to become an actor. Regardless of what they said, Jang Hyuk continued to practice hard and made hot dogs every day. Thanks to his great endurance and hard work, he was able to stay in the company and gradually rose to his current position as actor Jang Hyuk. What’s more interesting is that g.o.d and actress Jeon Ji Hyun also grew up eating his hot dogs during their rookie days.
It is said that Jang Hyuk’s image in his recently released movie “Tomb of the River” left a great impression on the audiences by reminding them of the days when he was still unknown in the film industry. His character – a cruel gangster, which is completely different from his image in real life, also starts from the bottom but decides to step on his own way to rise to the top position to lead all the top organizations in Gangneung.
