3/27/14 Thorn – 1st round of interviews and photos with Jang Hyuk


It’s so nice to wake up to Jang Hyuk news and especially if they are accompanied with gorgeous photos. This time the stylist did a good job in taming “the hair” so it is easier to focus on his handsome face.


These photos are the result of a round of interviews done for the press as part of the Thorn promotion


Here are some excerpts from the interviews: (translation by Gumi)

He mentioned he does not plan to be a regular on Variety Shows anytime soon. He mentioned he wants to to do a “special project” every 10 years. And that project will be a one time thing.


Q: Kim Sooro recommended you to do theater. Do you want to try it?
A: I do have admiration for the stage. But as of now, I’m more attracted to portrayal through video.


He said “Real Men” was a healing experience for him “It wasn’t because I wanted to do Variety shows that I chose to do Real Men. I wanted to reflect on my past and have a good influence on my future. It definitely wasn’t only for fun and quitting was also a careful decision. It was not easy”


They asked him if he keeps in touch with Real Men members. He said he has not recently, but he invited some soldiers on vacation to the Thorn filming site.

I was really curious about this movie because the premise reminded me of the 1996 popular American movie Primal Fear. I wanted to know how similar it would be and if the outcome would be the same. I was also curious about any similarities there might be in the portrayal of the main suspects in each movie.
