Recently, JYJ’s Kim Jae Joong shared an episode in which he almost lost his identity as a man when shooting Code Name: Jackal with Song Ji Hyo, the female lead in the film.
On October 16, Kim attended a press conference for the movie Code Name: Jackal (directed by Bae Hyung Joon), held at the Blue Square in Hannam-dong, Seoul. He said, “When I was shooting a scene in which I was being tied up, I could’ve almost lost my chance to get married because of Song Ji Hyo.”
The film is about a legendary female killer kidnapping and trying to kill a top star. Song plays the killer while Kim appears as the top star.
The scene in which Kim experienced a life-threatening moment is one in which Song drops a kitchen knife between his legs by accident while he was tied up.
Kim continued, “Thankfully, everyone on the staff was very careful when shooting the scene, and because Song Ji Hyo practiced the part a lot, I was safe. For me, the most difficult thing about shooting was being tied up for 80 percent of the time. That was very hard.”
Code Name: Jackal is to premiere in November.
