“The Glory” Jeon Jae Joon’s color blindness turns out to be common among celebrities

Many Korean celebrities have decreased ability to see colors like Jeon Jae Joon from “The Glory”. 

In Netflix’s original series “The Glory”, the weakness, color blindness, of Jeon Jae Joon (Park Sung Hoon), a perpetrator of school violence, is used as a device to heighten tension of the story.

The Glory

Jeon Jae Joon has a complex about his color blindness. Moon Dong Eun (Song Hye Kyo), a victim of school violence who vowed to take revenge on the bullies, provokes Jeon Jae Joon by telling him, “You don’t know what a colorful world is like.”

Jeon Jae Joon’s color blindness is also a clue to the fact that Ha Ye Sol (Oh Ji Yu), the daughter of Park Yeon Jin (Lim Ji Yeon) and Ha Do Young (Jung Sung Il), is his biological daughter.

Jeon Jae Joon’s color blindness is a symptom in which he cannot distinguish colors normally due to abnormal red-green color vision. In some cases, it is congenital, but it can also appear acquired due to various factors such as stress.

As “The Glory” is going viral, celebrities with color vision deficiency like Jeon Jae Joon are attracting attention.

Shin Dong Yup

Shin Dong Yup confessed that he suffered from color blindness in SBS’s “My Little Old Boy” in 2017, saying, “I don’t know what a beautiful color is. I didn’t understand the autumn leaves when I was young.”

Actor Kang Kyung Joon also said on MBC’s “Radio Star”, “If I had to draw an apple during the college entrance exam, I drew it by memorizing it. It’s hard to tell if red and green are attached.”

Jung Gyu Woon, who appeared in MBC’s “Real Men 2”, was tested for color blindness during the conscription examination and read the number 74 as 71, and it was revealed that he was color-blind.

Comedian Hong Rocky surprised everyone when he said about his unique fashion sense, “Actually, I am weak against red-green. I wore it thinking it was beige, but it was purple.”

In addition, NCT’s Jeno and Haechan are idols with color weakness. There are also film directors Jang Jin, rapper Kid Milli, and Yong Jun Hyung.
