Subject: Jo In Sung talks about his appearance on ‘Infinity Challenge’ and whether he’d try his hand at ‘Running Man’
Actor Jo In Sung shared his regrets about missing out on episodes of MBC ‘Infinity Challenge‘ he had to turn down, and also the possibility of him ever taking on SBS ‘Running Man‘!
Jo In Sung was on hand at the final press conference for SBS’s ‘Wind Blows in Winter‘ and shared, “When I was discharged from the army, I chose the movie ‘Martial Arts‘ as my return project but they told me that filming will start 3 months later. It is hard to film something else in 3 months so I appeared on ‘Infinity Challenge’.”
“I told the staff at ‘Martial Arts’ that I will only appear on one episode of ‘Infinity Challenge’ and they allowed it. The rowing special for ‘Infinity Challenge’ was to be a four week project and I wanted to do it the entire time. But to prepare for my movie I only appeared once. If I had known that the movie would be cancelled, I would have stayed on until the end. I really wanted to do it.”
He went on to say, “After the filming for the movie was canceled, I had a break of about a year and a half and people tried to comfort me. I am in talks to star in another movie for my next project but since it is still in the planning stages, I can’t say anything yet.“ He joked by saying, “If I say something and the movie is cancelled again, people will say, ‘Oh no it happened again. Nothing he tries to do works out.‘”
Regarding appearing on variety shows, “I have been on ‘Infinity Challenge’ a few times. I don’t think it is time for me to appear on SBS’s ‘Healing Camp‘ yet.” He then hilariously refused to appear on ‘Running Man’, saying, ” If I appear on SBS’s ‘Running Man’ I have to run a lot and I do not want to run anymore. My knees hurt. In my drama I had to carry Song Hye Kyo and run a lot so I don’t want to do that anymore and just rest.”
As many of you know, Jo In Sung recently played Oh Soo on ‘Wind Blows in Winter’ and received a lot of love for his performance.
