Lee Joo Woo Reveals How “Let’s Eat 3” Cast Responded To Yoon Doojoon’s Sudden Enlistment
In a recent interview, actress Lee Joo Woo talked about wrapping up her recent drama, JTBC’s “Let’s Eat 3.”
As previously reported, Highlight’s Yoon Doojoon, who reprised his starring role from the previous installments of the “Let’s Eat” series, received a military draft notice while filming the drama and unexpectedly found himself enlisting before the end of filming.
Lee Joo Woo, who played the sassy Lee Seo Yeon in the drama, talked about the cast’s reaction to the news of Yoon Doojoon’s enlistment and how it affected their filming schedule.
Referring to Yoon Doojoon by his character’s name, the actress recalled, “It was a situation where Dae Young [Yoon Doojoon’s character] had to wrap up filming before the rest of the cast, and we had to send him off [early]. So I think it was probably much harder for him than for the rest of us. Since the entire filming schedule had to be changed.”
She went on to explain that the cast had mainly been concerned about Yoon Doojoon’s well-being. “When [you receive your] military draft notice, it’s the country that’s calling you to serve,” she said. “We all told him to return safely, and we patted him on the back encouragingly. I think we all told him to take good care of himself for the next two years and to get lots of sleep.”
“Let’s Eat 3” came to an end on August 28, just a few days after Yoon Doojoon’s enlistment on August 24.
