[Hot Takes from the Noonas] Jo In-sung is ready to work with "Goblin" writer Kim Eun-sook

2017/02/07 | Permalink

In a recent interview to promote his new film, "The King", actor Jo In-sung expressed his desire to work with the writer of recent hits "Goblin" and "Descendants of the Sun", Kim Eun-sook.

Kim Eun-sook's reputation as a starmaker for the male leads of her dramas was recently solidified thanks to the current stratospheric popularity of Gong Yoo following "Goblin" and Song Joong-ki following "Descendants of the Sun". Jo In-sung is no slouch in the popularity department himself, but in the interview, he expressed what sounded like impatience with the pace of his own career. "The King", a drama about corruption and power co-starring Jung Woo-sung, is Jo In-sung's first movie since his return from the army in 2011. In the meantime, he's been in two dramas, 2013's "That Winter, the Wind Blows" and 2014's "It's Okay, That's Love", both of which were successful, though not runaway hits.

I'm not sure if it's the limited number of roles offered to him, or the fact that he's picky, but given that he's had three projects in six years, a Kim Eun-sook drama might be just the boost his career needs. Sadly, Kim Eun-sook has yet to respond to his invitation. In the meantime, Jo In-sung can enjoy the fact that "The King" debuted as the number one movie in Korea.
