The production team for a film called “A Frozen Flower” held a press conference in the Sofitel Ambassador Hotel in Jung-gu, Seoul, on Nov. 25.
“I was afraid that the set for this movie might prove unfamiliar because I have mostly been doing modern movies,” said actor Jo In-sung. “I had to wear the old-fashioned clothes and makeup of a person from the past dynasty and speak differently, as well. I wondered if such a character would suit me. I am heavily indebted to the director because I relied on him every time I felt insecure and he gave me support and strength along the way,” admitted Jo In-sung.
“The director advised me to always ‘think out of box.’ I think this opportunity has helped me become a more versatile actor.”
Jo plays the role of Hong-rim, a captain of a 36-man squadron of royal guards who is so loyal that he is prepared to follow the king’s orders — to sleep with the queen.
Actor Joo Jin-mo, who plays a king in the Koryo Dynasty, will appear as Jo’s homosexual partner. The film will be released on Dec. 30.
