Hound dogs Woo Do-hwan Kim Sae-ron controversy If I had taken care of my younger brother, I would have thought a lot
Actor Woo Do-hwan recalled the ups and downs of actor Kim Sae-ron, who caused a controversy over drunk driving.
On the 14th, he met Woo Do-hwan, the main character of Netflix’s original series “Hounds,” in Yeoksam-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul.
Based on the webtoon of the same name, “Hounds” is a criminal entertainment action in which young people Gun-woo (Woo Do-hwan) and Woo-jin (Lee Sang-yi), who are caught up in the private loan business world where money comes before human life, fight for their lives against huge evil forces. It is the first series presented by director Kim Joo-hwan of the movie “Youth Police” (2017), which attracted 5.65 million viewers, and ranked second in Netflix’s non-English-speaking TV category with a total of 27.97 million views within three days of its release.
Woo Do-hwan played Gun-woo, a pure but honest boxing prospect. Gun-woo joins forces with bond sales legend Choi (Huh Joon-ho) and Choi’s successor Hyun-joo (Kim Sae-ron) to pledge revenge as his mother, who ran a small cafe, was in danger of being swindled by the bond company “Smile Capital” due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Woo Do-hwan was infinitely smooth when portraying his love for his mother, and he was full of wit as he built up a “bromance” with Lee Sang-yi. Woo Do-hwan’s speedy boxing action is also a highlight. Woo Do-hwan gained 12kg and did not take a break from exercising, eating four meals a day as Gun-woo is good at boxing
Meanwhile, “Hounds” also caused inconvenience to viewers as Kim Sae-ron, who was embroiled in a controversy over drunk driving last year, appeared without “full editing.” As Kim Sae-ron’s appearance was finished, it was inevitable to revise the script for episodes 7 and 8, and head coach Kim suffered from hair loss and irritable colitis under extreme pressure.
“Ju-hwan plays a lot of pranks. “I thought it was a joke,” said Woo Do-hwan. “We had a meeting together about what to do.” I was dumbfounded at the time. It had been filmed until episode 6, and it was only a few months before it was over. “It was not a situation where I could take it again,” he explained.
“It was a moment when I didn’t want my brother to collapse. “I loved this work more than anyone else,” he said. “With Sang, I said, ‘We must never collapse.’ He said, “If you show your passion as you always do, the staff will not be tired.”
Woo Do-hwan also confessed, “It was an opportunity for everyone to develop one step at a time,” adding, “We are still overcoming it.”
“With Sang, ‘It could be our responsibility. I thought, “I wish I had taken care of my younger brother a little more. Woo Do-hwan said, “If I had contacted you one more time and taken care of you, ‘Is there anything difficult?'” “I had a lot of thoughts.”
