[HanCinema's News] Ha Do-kwon Gives Closing Thoughts on "The Penthouse 3"
By William Schwartz | Published on
In a recent Instagram post, actor Ha Do-kwon uploaded a picture featuring himself, Han Ji-hyun, Kim Young-dae, Jin Ji-hee, and Kim Hyun-soo. The caption of the picture read, I had a fun time acting with my colleagues this whole time. I took a first time shot and a last time shot. You all sure suffered since I was such a bad teacher. In "The Penthouse 3" Ha Do-kwon plays a music teacher at an elite academy, where he is often seen instructing the drama's younger characters.
Ha Do-kwon also followed up that statement by expressing thanks, and encouraging his students to keep on fighting. Ha Do-kwon's character on "The Penthouse 3" was fired in the drama's most recent episode, which had ratings of 17.5%, at the behest of Lee Ji-ah's character who is his new superior. The Instagram post appears to confirm that this is the end of Ha Do-kwon's character's involvement in the story. Compared to his predecessors, Ha Do-kwon's character was lucky not to have been killed.
