In an interview during the press conference for their upcoming drama “Jirisan,” Jun Ji Hyun (also known as Gianna Jun) and Ju Ji Hoon talked about their chemistry. Jun Ji Hyun said, “It was great working with Ji Hyun, we worked on the same project (“Kingdom”) together and I think the team spirit was great.”
Ju Ji Hoon then added, “I was a huge fan of Gianna from very young, and I can still vividly remember the first time I met her in a meeting. It was very surreal, because she was such a role model for me as an actor. She has the image of “My Sassy Girl,” as well as “Assassination.” She would make me feel comfortable, she offered me a lot of free food. She was very nice to me and friendly.
He also shared that during their chase scenes, Jun Ji Hyun was the fastest runner. He shared, “Even though she’s very light physically, it must be quite challenging for her but she didn’t show any signs of being exhausted,” and added that they she was a “high-spirited person” and that he “can feel the energy coming out of her eyes.”
Jun Ji Hyun concluded that their teamwork was “jjang” (or translated as “great” or “superb”).
