Wi Ha-joon says he had to “make jokes” on the set of ‘Bad And Crazy’ in order to stay in character

“I’m not very funny in real life,” he explained

Wi Ha-joon has opened up about some of the challenges he had to overcome for the upcoming action drama Bad And Crazy.

Earlier this week, during a press conference for the new tVN series, the Squid Game breakout star shared that his character K is “quite different from all the characters that I’ve played before”. Aside from having to perform action sequences, Wi also said that his character had a lot of comical aspects that he “wanted to bring to life”.

“I [had to] watch a lot of comedy TV shows and films,” the actor shared. “I’m not very funny in real life but I tried to maintain that aspect of my character as much as possible on set.”
