This will be Kim Hyun Joong's first action scene in a drama. He commented, "I wanted to show my fans and viewers a different side to me so I attended action school."
He continued, "I have been controlling my body fat with exercise and portion control. I have lost about 7% of my body fat." A man's average fat percentage is 15-20%. Kim Hyun Joong is about 1/2-1/3 of what an average man should have.
