Jang Geun Suk Reveals That His “Switch” Body Double Was A “Produce 101 Season 2” Contestant
Jang Geun Suk is playing two characters in the SBS hit drama “Switch,” and he revealed that the person who’s been helping him as his body double was a contestant on “Produce 101 Season 2”!
At a press conference on April 25 for the drama, Jang Geun Suk talked about how he’s able to act as both his characters in the same scene because he performs with an actor who serves as his body double.
“His face hasn’t appeared even once in the show itself,” said Jang Geun Suk. “But every day on set he talks with me about acting, and has never once put in less than a full effort.” He said that his body double was the fellow actor in “Switch” that he’s the most grateful for.
Jang Geun Suk said, “He’s someone who appeared on ‘Produce 101.’ So I feel a greater affection for him.” Jang Geun Suk was the host of the first season of “Produce 101” in 2016, with the male season in 2017 hosted by BoA.
A source from “Switch” has since shared that Jang Geun Suk’s body double on the show is the “Produce 101 Season 2” contestant Jung Hyo Joon. His agency is YGKPlus, and he’s currently working as a model and actor. Prior to working on “Switch,” he also appeared in the KBS2 drama “Greatest One-Shot.”
