[NEWS] JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong Talks About Injuries From “Manhole” Filming
Kim Jaejoong, who plays the character Bong Pil, sustained injuries while filming which required 7 stitches on his finger. During the V Live broadcast, the cast brought up the injury. He then opened up about how when he takes off his clothes, there’s not a single place in the lower half of his body that is not covered by a bruise.
“I think you can’t help it,” he said. “People tell me to be careful, but I think it’s important for me as an actor to not be selfish with my body.” He added that the hot weather during filming had also posed a problem for the cast and crew.
Because Kim Jaejoong’s character is time traveling between the past and present, the cast also revealed that he has to constantly change his hair and outfits throughout filming. UEE said, “Up to five times a day!”
The first episode of “Manhole” aired August 9 at 10 p.m. KST.
[NEWS] “Manhole” Cast Talk About What Time In Their Lives They’d Like To Revisit Through Time Travel
On August 9, the cast of “Manhole,” Kim Jaejoong, UEE, B1A4’s Baro, and Jung Hye Sung, held a V Live broadcast to talk about their new drama.
“Manhole” is about a man named Bong Pil (Kim Jaejoong) who falls into a manhole that lets him travel back in time, an ability he uses to stop the marriage of his longtime crush (UEE).
When asked what they would do if given the ability to time travel, Baro said, “I want to return to my high school days. I started training [to become an idol] during my first year of high school so I have no high school friends. I really envied the people around me. I want to go back in time and have fun with my friends.”
In contrast, Jung Hye Sung said, “I want to go to the future. I want to see what I’ll be doing and how I’ll be living 3 or 4 years from now.”
UEE also wanted to go to the future, but for a different reason. “I want to fast-forward to the last episode [of ‘Manhole’],” she said. “We don’t know how the drama ends either, so I want to be the only one of us that knows.”
Kim Jaejoong said, “We got to wear high school uniforms for the drama and it felt good. I didn’t really have a high school life either. Wearing a uniform for the first time in a while made me feel rejuvenated. I think I’d like to revisit any time in the past.”
