About Volcano High – interview and behind the scenes


Volcano High

Christine posted this recently on youtube and I thought it would be interesting to share here

It’s an old and long-ish interview but it gives good insights into the mind of younger Jang Hyuk. (Spoiler alert: It turns out his passion, and meticulous character analysis was always the same)

But what impressed me the most is how tough the filming for Volcano High was. I had heard before, that JH lost consciousness while filming the action scenes with wires but it is one thing to hear it and another to actually see it 🥺 (I admit, I was shocked by the footage below)

Here is hoping k-ent industry has improved when it comes to safety measures. And I guess kudos to JH for his amazing tenacity (but I guess I’ll always stress out, like a mom, about his dangerous stunts

Lastly, let’s watch together this FMV of Volcano High with the song “Creep” because, why not?

We at SOH wish you the best. Stay home, binge some Hyuk dramas/movies and keep safe! 😘🙏❤️ Love you all!

Actress Soo Ae says Jang Hyuk is the best partner she has worked with.

Soo Ae, who acted an infection specialist InHae in a movie The Flu, revealed her satisfaction with the collaboration with partner Jang Hyuk (who acted JiGoo).

In the beginning of the movie, JiGoo saves InHae in danger, starting their cute romance. After, they together fight against deadly virus spreading quickly. SooAe said “Filming ‘The Flu’, I exceptionally felt that we were doing it ‘together'”, describing how all the cast and crew worked in exact same mind.

She elaborated on Jang Hyuk, saying “He is amazing as an actor, but is even more as a person. There were some hard times for me. If he approached me as a fellow actor at those times, then I would’ve had to be formal with him as well, but he approached me as a nice ‘oppa’, so I felt comfortable around him. We tell each other, ‘We should meet again in a romantic comedy.’ I really want to try acting with him again.”
