Kim Hyun Joong‘s upcoming dark action drama City Conquest has been no-so-quietly filming in Japan despite not having a network or time slot yet. The production recently filmed an action sequence involving Kim Hyun Joong riding a motorcycle on the bridge with explosions. The stunt sequence was planned and executed by the stunt team who worked on IRIS, so clearly we’re talking serious stuff. When Kim Hyun Joong saw the motorcycle on set, he was apparently giddy and started riding it in circles even before camera rolled. The entire sequence was carefully planned and filming went off without a hitch. This drama is expected to also go on location shoots in China, Singapore, and the US. CC is a drama adapted from a gritty manhwa about a man seeking revenge on society for his dastardly father’s abandonment of his mother and himself. I have a soft spot for Kim Hyun Joong still and he looks believably manly and macho here in his new turn as the dark anti-hero.
