[31.08.12] [News] Kim Hyun Joong drives a truck on City Conquest: “Where is the pretty boy?”


Kim Hyun Joong recently appealed to many women with a picture of himself driving a truck.
Kim drove a truck for one of the scenes in his new drama series City Conquest filmed in Japan. It’s hard to imagine him driving a mini-truck on the streets of Japan because he has always played such roles as a pretty boy and a rich boy.
In some snapshots of the scene recently released, Kim is driving a truck, on which liquor bottles are loaded, in shabby clothes and with a long face.
Kim’s image in this scene is quite different from the manly one in the spectacular scene of him skillfully driving a motorcycle.
People responded: “I’ve never seen Kim Hyun Joong like this.” “He’s still handsome though.” “Why don’t you give me a ride?”
City Conquest is produced by the production team of the drama series Iris, and it stars Kim, Jung Yumi, Nam Goong Min, Kim Seung Woo, and Kim Young Ho.

New still cuts from the set of the drama City Conquest were released on August 20.

The ‘mutual understanding’ friendship still cuts shows Baek Mir (Kim Hyun Joong, Lee Dan Bi (Jung Yu Mi) and Park Kwang Ya (Park Hyo Joon) in an izakaya in Japan sharing food, drinks and each other’s company.

Another still cut shows the three friends, high in spirit and in life, as they walk through the city street at night and fist pumping while laughing and shouting.

 The scenes were recently shot in an izakaya in Japan where the three actors’ close ties and synergy amazed the drama staff once more. Park Hyo Joon’s ad-libs for his drunk scene, in particular, were said to cause his fellow cast members and staff to laugh nonstop.
