‘Bossam’ Jung Il-woo said, “This is the first time I have ever seen such a rough character,” and announced the unexpected transformation of “Sageuk Male God”.
MBN’s 10th anniversary special plan “Bossam: Steal Destiny” (here in after “Bossam”) Jung Il-woo plays “Bow,” a livelihood boss with a secret of birth. Bau, who lives by raising his son by himself, is a person who is involved in all sorts of rough things, such as gambling, stealing, fighting, bossing, etc. to make a living.

Jung Il-woo, who played the role of king or upper classman, said, “This is the first time I’ve ever been a real male character like this. He said that he felt more attractive because he was a completely different character from the characters he had been in charge of so far. “I was able to choose this work without hesitation because I wanted to show a new look to the viewers.”

This is his fifth historical drama work, Jung Il-woo, which is known as the “Sageuk Male God. Starting with “The Return of Iljimae,” “The Moon Embracing the Sun,” “Journal of the Night Watchman,” and “Haechi,” in many historical dramas, showing off its overwhelming presence and creating numerous life characters.

His unprecedented transformation followed that much effort. He first invested time in “visual.” “In my previous work, I showed a neat and tidy appearance, but this time, I put on a beard for the first time, and my topcoat was messy and played.” As a result, he became aware of the grievances of the class society (?). “When I was filming in winter, I was wearing thin clothes and sandals, and it was cold where I lived. It was awkward at first because it was different from what I did before, but I quickly got used to it.” There was also a good point. He said, “Because I have a messy hair, I have more freedom to act and move.”

Action acting also needed a change. It’s because it was the first time I had a “raw” action, such as rolling over, hitting, and using a fist. He was accustomed to the action of riding a horse or using a sword, so he had to hit him directly, so he suffered a lot, but the more he did, the harder he exercised and raised his body. This was the reason he was able to perform action acting safely using his body until now.

The romance narrative that will build up as her relationship with her changes over the wall of her status while wrapping up Ongju Soo-kyung (Kwon Yuri) as a mistake of her life, is the biggest point of ‘bossam’. Jung Il-woo also pointed out that “a bad story that started with an unexpected meeting, but the chemistry of Bow and Su-kyung, which develops into a thrilling relationship as the play unfolds, will be a point that viewers can also enjoy.”

I did not forget to mention the chemistry with Yuri Kwon. “It was the first time we met with this work, and breathing is very good,” he said, saying, “We share our worries, monitor each other, and share know-how to overcome the cold and have fun taking pictures,” boasting a warm atmosphere on the scene. In the end, “I ask for your warm support for the romance that turns the destiny of Bow and Su-kyung. It will be a work with both laughter and emotion.”

MBN ‘Bossam’, a romance historical drama unfolded by a livelihood boss in the background of the Joseon Dynasty under the Gwanghae-gun, accidentally wrapping up ongju, will be broadcast for the first time on Saturday, May 1 at 9:40 pm. At the same time as the main broadcast starts, Korea’s leading online video service, Wavve, will release OTT exclusively.
