2012/06/03 | 2865 views | Permalink | Source

Actor Ju Ji-hoon said he didn't care about being compared with fellow actor Lee Byung-hun. The two actors are being focused on for their first attempts at a historical since their debut.

At the press release conference of the movie "I Am a King" Ju Ji-hoon was asked how he felt about being compared with Lee Byung-hun at their first attempts at historicals and he replied, "The genre between us is very different so there's no pressure".

Ju Ji-hoon acts out the role of a prince who lacks something and an ignorant but loyal slave at the same time in "I Am a King".

Lee Byung-hun takes on the role of Gwanghae-gun and a low-class man who pretends to be the king in the movie "Masquerade".

Ju Ji-hoon said, "We have very different genres so it's alright. I don't feel pressured at all but I am trying to work harder in the comedy I have to display for my role this time".

"In other cases when a single person plays two roles, one part is more important than the other but in our case, both the characters we are expressing have the same amount of importance so we are really busy".

"I Am a King" is about Choong-nyeong (Ju Ji-hoon) who leaves the palace because he doesn't want to become king and becomes a slave who looks just like him, experiencing things he's never done before. To be released in the summer.
