The person who gave the cutest performance on the red carpet of the 16th Busan International Film Festival that opened on the 6th was the actor Ji Sung(34). Though he wasn’t in Busan because he had appeared in a movie, he drew the attention of many when he received the largest cheers from those at the festival.
Ji Sung, who received much love from viewers through SBS’ Wednesday-Thursday drama ‘Protect the Boss’, stepped on the red carpet as an actor who was invited to attend the festival in Busan. As soon as he appeared, he flashed ‘V’s at the camera in what can only be described as something Ji Hun would do.
“I wasn’t there in Busan because I had participated in a movie, but everyone greeted me with great enthusiasm. I think it’s all thanks to Ji Hun so I wanted to give back in the form of fan service. I thought about what would be best, and I came to the conclusion that the ‘V’ fits Ji Hun the best.”
Ji Sung said that he felt as though his performance on the red carpet was the best way to let go of Ji Hun for the last time. Though he hasn’t prepared a follow-up drama yet, he felt as though he needed to let the character go after spending so much time with him. The actor showed his gratitude for the character who healed him in many ways.
The night in Busan was buzzing with excitement. All the actors and representatives in the industry drank together at various cart bars in Haeundae. Ji Sung was no exception. “I’m not that familiar with the movie industry, so I was in the position of going around and greeting everyone. I walked around and tried to greet as many representatives as possible.”
In the end, Ji Sung shared a glass of soju with the members of JYJ, who were invited to the festival for the ‘A Night for Actors’ event. Thanks to Kim Jaejoong, who had appeared in ‘Protect the Boss’ with him, Ji Sung was able to become friends with JYJ. “I had a glass of soju with Yoochun, Junsu and Jaejoong. It was fun because they’re all such young friends.”
Ji Sung said that he thought of his chemistry with Kim Jaejoong in the drama to be very important. Mu Won (Kim Jaejoong), Ji Hun’s only friend and rival, constantly got into petty fights with Ji Hun in the drama and that made it essential for the two actors to be at ease with each other.
“I’m grateful to Jaejoong because he did so well despite the fact that this was his first time acting in a drama. My chemistry with him was really important and it worked out. I had great chemistry with Wang Ji Hae and Choi Kang Hee as well. It’s actually really hard for actors to get along so well like we did.”
