Apart from acting and photography, Jun Yeol also wishes to enter the film industry someday as a filmmaker: “Even if I don’t participate in a movie as an actor, I have a desire to participate in making films, whether in directing, production, planning, or screenwriting. I think it’s because that’s all that I know.” We’re rooting for you, our Jung Hwan!

Right now, Jun Yeol is preparing for his upcoming movie Alien, where he will be joining So Ji Sub, Kim Woo Bin, Yum Jung Ah, and Kim Tae Ri. He is also in talks to lead in the drama Disqualified As A Human with Jeon Do Yeon.
