Joo Ji Hoon Describes Losing Consciousness While Filming New Drama
Joo Ji Hoon shared stories from filming MBC’s “The Item.”
Based on a popular webtoon of the same name, “The Item” is a fantasy drama about a man and a woman who try to uncover the secrets behind mysterious objects with supernatural powers.
On February 2, MBC aired “Episode 0: ‘Item’ Unboxing” to introduce viewers to the upcoming drama.
Joo Ji Hoon said, “There are a lot of VFX effects, so I have to imagine a lot. Compared to dramas I have done in the past, I met with the director and writer for a long time and had many meetings about the script.”
In the drama, Joo Ji Hoon acts out a scene where he makes a train stop using the supernatural powers of a bracelet. “Because I used a lot of strength while acting and imagining, I blacked out,” revealed the actor. “I dropped onto the tracks about two times. I momentarily lost consciousness.”
“The Item” will premiere on February 11 at 10 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki with English subtitles!
