Kim Hyun Joong shows 김현중 off his fighter figure in shirtless still cuts for 'Generation of Youth'

Source: http://www.allkpop.com

Kim Hyun Joong looked almost 'unbreakable' with his hardcore abs for KBS 2TV's 'Generation of Youth'!

Kim Hyun Joong didn't need a stunt man for the action scenes with his fighter figure and determination and went shirtless to show off the fruits of his labor.

He shared, "At first, I tried to make the most sculpted body I could but as I thought about it, I realized there was no exercise equipment and protein supplements in the 1930s that we have today. That is why I just stuck to eating meat and vegetables and made a healthy body in a realistic way. So although you may think 'it's not that great of a body' as you watch my scenes, I hope you will keep in mind that I toned my body in consideration for the generation of the drama."

"For 'Generation of Youth', rather than using a lot of wire-like special equipment for the action scenes, we used our own bodies to clash with one another to fight. As much as my bruises increase after each filming, I think you will be able to feel the realistic action of the 1930s."

'Generation of Youth' is a romantic noir drama set in the 1930s centered around young fighters and their story of love and friendship. It will premiere this week so make sure you tune in to catch the scene above and more!

(Video) Inspiring Generation's 감격시대 director Kim Jeong Kyu, "Kim Hyun Joong is perfect for this role!"

Brief Translation: @5StarsAs1
Video: Sportseoultv

When asked whether is there any similarity in characters between real life and in IG, KHJ said that fights occasionally (or must have been) happened in high school before. But when fights really do happen, he was only a onlooker! LOLOL!!! 
 PD said he started noticing KHJ since SS501 days because he looked handsome and decent features. But he said that KHJ suits the character as Shin Jung Tae and joked that he was a little stiff(?) in previous characters. PD was afraid in the beginning but KHJ had opened up his acting passion so it turned out pretty well.
