Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo Star Ji Soo Talks About Filming Shirtless and His Recent Health Battle

Just recently, one of the stars of the recently concluded Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo, Ji Soo, sat down for an interview with MBN TV and opened up on his most memorable scene on the period drama, his plans for the future, as well as his recent health battle.

During the said interview, the actor was asked to choose the most memorable scene that he has filmed for the period drama and surprisingly, the most memorable scene for him was the bath house scene where he along with the other princes were lounging about before being interrupted by I.U.'s character during the first episode of the TV series. This is also the scene where his character makes his first appearance on the drama.

According to Allkpop, the reason why this particular scene has become unforgettable for the actor is because of the pressure he had felt while filming the scene shirtless.

"I felt really bothered about filming the scene shirtless." Ji Soo began. "I wasn't confident because I didn't think I had a good physique. As much as I wanted to prepare for that particular day, I just couldn't and then all of a sudden that day finally arrives. Every time I looked in the mirror, I felt sad and during that day when I saw the other guys' bodies, I was even sadder."

While he may have felt uncomfortable while filming shirtless for the scene, still that bath house scene with all the half-naked princes turned out to be one of the most memorable moments in the drama for the fans even if it's just to see the amazing physiques of the princes.

Ji Soo may have qualms about his own body he definitely had no problems naming Yoon Sun Woo as the prince with the best body. "I think all of them have great bodies but if I were to choose just one, it would be Yoon Sun Woo. He is quite fit." The 23-year old actor remarked.

Meanwhile, in another interview with OSEN, the actor had opened about his recent health battle. The actor was recently diagnosed with Osteomyelitis, or a bone infection, and had undergone surgery in the midst of filming for his upcoming film 'Fantastic.'

"I was already limping before I was taken to the hospital. The pain was so excruciating it had to be the most difficult time of my life. At the same time, I also thought about how mysterious our bodies are." The actor said, as reported by iTech Post. He also expressed how grateful he is to the production crew for their patience while he was recovering.

Aside from the upcoming film Fantastic, the actor is also set to appear in a new TV series called 'Strong Woman Do Bong-soon which will be airing this January.
