Actor Lee Je-hoon revealed that he had a strict diet for the movie 'Escape'.

On the 20th, Lee Je-hoon was interviewed about the movie 'Escape' at a cafe in Samcheong-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul, and told various stories.

'Escape' depicts the breathless chase between Gyu-nam, a North Korean soldier who crosses the line between life and death and races towards life on the other side of the barbed wire fence in the demilitarized zone, and Hyeon-sang, a North Korean security department officer who must stop him.

Lee Je-hoon gave a passionate performance in the role of Gyu-nam, a North Korean soldier who began his escape for tomorrow. He engages in a rough chase with Gu Gyo-hwan. Gyu-nam's strong will to escape North Korea, despite passing through minefields, rolling in muddy water, and getting shot, was revealed through his intense eyes and energy.

On this day, Lee Je-hoon said, "I like to eat, but I thought I took care of my body by exercising," but added, "However, the situation that Gyu-nam is in means that he cannot eat freely, and even when he has food, he shares it with other colleagues. He has been working for about 3 months. “I wanted to physically reveal the situation of Gyu-nam, who was in a life-threatening chase during the filming period,” he said.

He continued, "At lunch and dinner time, the smell of the food truck was so strong that it was truly unbearable. However, since Gyu-nam also endures and escapes from that situation, I also took that attitude when filming this work. I endured a lot and restrained myself." He confessed.

‘Escape’ will be released on the 3rd of next month.
