Kim Jae Joong isn’t letting the Korean summer heat get in the way of his acting.
Kim Jae Joong is being commended by the film crew of his current MBC drama Time Slip Dr. Jin for his spirit after filming in the over-36 degree Celsius temperatures outdoors such as on July 31.
Despite the intense heat which caused those just standing on set to break into a sweat, Kim Jae Joong wore his full combat uniform, down to knee protectors and successfully filmed his fight scenes without issue.
The singer/actor has continued to film his scenes without protest or tiring and is fighting the heat by taking cover in an umbrella tent in between takes, wearing two layers of a sleeveless shirt which is made to absorb and quickly dry sweat and attaching cool sheets to his body.
Kim Jae Joong shared on filming in the heat saying, “Just swinging my sword a few times makes my entire body sweat as though rain has fallen on me but it has helped me to express the feelings of heartbreak in the fight scenes better. Focusing on the production, I’ve come to forget the heat.”
