Photos of Doojoon making a special appearance on MBC’s upcoming drama, “Thousand Kisses”, have been released today. In the drama that is set to premiere on August 20th, Doojoon plays the role of star soccer player, Yoon Ki Joon.
Doojoon is well-known for his love for soccer. He’s played soccer in high school and is a member of FC MEN, the star-studded celebrity soccer team consisting of JYJ’s Junsu and Jaejoong, BEAST’s Lee Kikwang and Yoseob, as well as Kim Hyun Joong.
The production team of “Thousand Kissed” was looking for an actor with both star appeal and soccer skills, and Doojoon, who has received positive reviews for his acting in MBC sitcom “All My Love”, was picked as the #1 candidate.
The BEAST member really liked the idea of starring as a soccer player and also since 4Minute’s Nam Ji Hyun, his fellow agency-mate, is also appearing in the show, he gladly accepted the offer.
During the filming that took place in Incheon recently, Doojoon impressed the production crew not just with his acting and soccer skills, but also with his muscular thighs, thus earning the nickname, “stone-thighs”.
An official was quoted as saying, “His soccer skills were so good you would have believed him if he said he’s a professional player. We believe Doojoon’s appearance would provide a better viewing experience to our fans.”
“Thousand Kissed” is a family melow drama featuring veteran actors including Seo Young Hee, Ji Hyun Woo, Lee Soon jae, Kim So Eun and Ryu Jin. The first episode will air on August 20 at 8:40PM KST.
