2AM’s Jeong Jin-woon says filming smoking scenes was hard as he is a non-smoker

2AM member Jeong Jin-woon is the latest K-pop artiste to venture in to acting. His new film, Brother, sees him star as a rookie detective fighting for justice in a corrupt world.

In an interview with Sports Chosun on Oct 7, Jeong shared his experience on getting into character, particularly when it came to filming smoking scenes. Often times in a crime fiction, the detective is depicted with a cigarette in hand; and this was exactly the case for Jeong.

He expressed that filming the scenes was difficult as he is a non-smoker.

“There was a scene where my character smoked during an action scene in the movie. I learned to smoke from a smoker for about two to three months before filming. I’m the kind of person who doesn’t really (like) cigarettes,” he said, adding that his voice was affected by the smoking.

He continued: “People were worried for me because of this scene. And then, I was worried I wouldn’t be able to quit smoking. However, I immediately succeeded in quitting smoking.”

The singer said he would immediately throw the cigarettes away after the scenes were done.

In the movie, Jeong plays Kang Soo, who is working undercover in a crime organisation alongside its boss Yong Shik, played by Jo Jae-yoon.

Jeong made his acting debut in July this year in the comedy-horror film Only I Can See. The action-packed Brother was released in South Korea on Oct 7.

The temporary spectrum allowed the operators to deliver faster connectivity to customers to meet a surge in data demand as large numbers of people shifted last year to working and studying from home.

MTN and Vodacom have also used the temporary frequencies to launch 5G networks.

But the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) said in August telecom operators must return their bandwidth by the end of November, as it could not allow the temporary assignment to "assume a state of permanence," w

Football: Soccer-Klopp not enthused by Atletico style, but cannot argue with results

MADRID (Reuters) - Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said on Monday that he was not a fan of Spanish side Atletico Madrid's style of play but could not argue with their results on the pitch.

Liverpool, who were beaten home and away by Diego Simeone's team in the Champions League Round of 16 last season, travel to Madrid on Tuesday to take on Atletico in the group stage.

Klopp, who criticised Atletico's physically demanding and defensive style after Liverpool's defeats, told reporters on Monday that those comments had stemmed from anger and disappointment, not a lack of respect for the Spanish team.

"After the second game I was angry and disappointed about a lot of things," Klopp told a news conference.
