Joo back on TV after 6 years
Model-turned-actor Joo Ji-hun will make an appearance on a Korean reality show for the first time in six years, according to local reports yesterday.
Movie insiders said that the 32-year-old will appear on the SBS weekend variety show “Running Man” and newly established show “Magic Eye” in a bid to promote his upcoming film “Confession.”
Joo has kept a low profile since he was convicted of marijuana use in 2009 and went public about his girlfriend, Son Ga-in of Brown Eyed Girls, after he got back from mandatory military service in 2011.
For “Magic Eye,” Joo will appear as the show’s first guest. It starts airing on July 8.
“Confession,” directed by rookie filmmaker Lee Do-yun, is a noir movie that traces the relationship of three best friends after one of their mothers is killed in an unexpected accident.
The film opens next month.
