Jin Goo and Park Ha-seon hung from the wires perfectly.
Still cuts of the upcoming KBS 2 drama "Lee Tae-baek" were released on the 31st.
In this scene from the first episode, Lee Tae-baek (Jin Goo) and Baek Ji-yoon (Park Ha-seon) are wearing safety helmets and hanging from the sides of buildings.
Despite the cold, the two were hanging from just a single wire each for 5~6 hours. However, they didn't show their exhaustion and continued do to their work.
It was a dangerous situation but Jin Goo has a great sense of athleticism and Park Ha-seon enjoys wall climbing as a hobby.
Apparently, the atmosphere was as tense as the possible dangers around it. However, the actor and the actress didn't hesitate and did what was told. Thanks to everyone's efforts and hard work, hopefully this drama will become a success.
Meanwhile, "Lee Tae-baek" is being shown for the first time at 10PM on the 4th of February.

Actor Ko Chang-seok said, "I was offered roles in several dramas unlike Jin Goo" when Jin Goo said, "I didn't star in a drama because I didn't want to. I didn't get any offers" at the press release event of the upcoming KBS 2TV drama "Lee Tae-baek".
Currently popular for his appearances in various entertainment programs, Ko Chang-seok said the reason he chose "Lee Tae-baek" was so that he could see how Jin Goo the 'professional gangster actor', performed in the drama he's leading in other than the favorable director and characters.
About his character, he said, "I am trying to get rid of the existing image I have. But still it requires a lot of my usual speech and habits. I am trying to put in bits and pieces of comedy in between".
The role of Ma Jin-ga is the owner of the advertisement company GRC. He looks like a playboy but is actually an advertising legend.
Ko Chang-seok said, "I don't advise my juniors on how to act. A seniors lame advise could destroy a good actor. I make them throw possible ad-libs. I try to become close to them but advising them on what to do can be dangerous.
"Lee Tae-baek" is the growth story of Lee Tae-baek, a born artist who overcomes his obstacle of a high school graduate and becomes a leading advertisement man. The cast includes Jin Goo, Park Ha-seon, Han Chae-young, Jo Hyeon-jae, Sunhwa and more.

^ Thanks for the article, Felicia.. KCS and JG acted together in the movie 'Showdown'.. indeed it'll be a treat to see JG tackling a non-gangster role. He wasn't in a bad boy role all the time but it's one that became more known.which probably a blessing in disguise to see a completely turnaround role. ^^

Felicia Hahaha yes! He has this playboy look that makes us think he's giving us a flirty look even when he's not even trying. :)) Can't believe he's already 33. He doesn't look like it to me.rubie Omg The Showdown. I can't believe I have forgotten they have acted in the same movie before. I've seen the movie just a month ago and JG even brutally killed KCS in the movie. Me = FAIL!ETA:
I admit I am pretty upset by the comments in dramabeans, when news of JHJ was cast, and fans of him want him to be the main lead instead of JG (it's like - who is he?). Buuuuut! Of course I know these reactions are normal, since they are a fan of him. And I kind of understand.. Because I have been there. I only found out who Jin Goo really is in 2011, even though I have been watching movies with him in it for years. I have watched Mother, A Bittersweet Life, Love Me Not and I didn't really notice him. But the way he finally took my attention was the weirdest - because of his red carpet outfit in Blue Dragon Film Awards. (That! Tie!) And the rest is history. (And when I look at his filmography, I realised he has been working hard since his debut, from very small roles in movies and dramas to this day. A lead role in a drama ^^)
OK, enough of Jin Goo.. but I do hope this drama will get popular internationally, so maybe there will be more fans for real life underdog JG. 
ANYWAY!!! 2 more days!
