If there is ever a K-ent comeback story more affirming that Joo Ji Hoon I’ve yet to see it, but then again he really had some luck coupled with copious amounts of hard work. Ten years ago in 2009 he was arrest for marijuana use and his sky rocketing career after Goong (Princess Hours) and Mawang (The Devil) ground to a screeching halt. He smartly enlisted in the military for his service duties, spending two years out of the limelight. He came back slowly after discharge working steadily but always getting K-netizen reminds and disapproval for his pot bust. All that seems to have finally faded in the last three years with the hit movies Along with the Gods and The Sky Gone North, and now with dramas Kingdom and Item. It probably helps that marijuana has gone in 10 years from illegal drug to legalized in many countries, so Joo Ji Hoon has earned his comeback and he’s looking way more confident and capable compared to his wilder youth days. I personally like him waaaay more nowadays as an actor.
