What has Joo Jin-Mo been doing career-wise as of late?

Joo Jin-Mo hasn’t been acting in over a year. His last acting gig was playing the role of Heo Il-Hoo in the Orion Cinema Network (OCN) crime action thriller, Bad Guys 2: City of Evil back in 2017.

The K-drama did well for a cable network series, but only average when compared to other OCN K-dramas.

This year, Joo Jin-Mo will make his return to the Korean small screen in Big Issue, a K-drama centered on Korean paparazzi. He will play Han Seok-Joo, an elite photojournalist who loses his job and family due to an incident.

Now an alcoholic, he gets hired as a paparazzo. Opposite of him will be Han Ye-Seul (Madame Antoine, 20th Century Boy and Girl) who plays his notorious editor-in-chief.

For those in the Americas interested in seeing Joo Jin-Mo act in his latest work Bad Guys 2: City of Evil, it is available via subscription on Netflix as Bad Guys: Vile City.
