Squid Game actor Wi Ha Joon was featured in the October issue of Men’s Health Korea magazine.
Wi Ha Joon is now having the busiest days ever, filming tvN’s most-anticipated drama series Bad and Crazy right after wrapping up the movie Midnight and Shark: The Beginning and Netflix original series Squid Game.
He is known for his passion in fitness and training. In an interview after photoshoot, he explained, “I have been building muscle with bodyweight training since I was in the military. I usually go to the gym five days a week to work out, but now I do it at home due to the pandemic.”
Wi Ha Joon shared his thoughts on Squid Game’s huge success by saying, “I read the script in a blink of an eye, and I was just blown away by how immersive it was. It was something that I’ve never seen before and I loved the character, Hwang Joon Ho, so I decided to star in the series.”
When asked about his on-screen teamwork with Lee Jung Jae, he replied, “Unfortunately, I didn’t have many scenes with him so, it was a bit of a bummer that I didn’t get to see him much in person. But he definitely showed something different, something he has never shown before, in this series. I could see that his steps and gaze were those of his character and his acting deeply inspired me.
