The first film project the 31-year-old actor joined in was the movie “Coin Locker Girl” – a project that gathered many famous names such as Kim Go Eun, Park Bo Gum, Kim Hye Soo and Go Kyung Pyo. An interesting detail was revealed that, while his role required the actor to be able to drive, Wi Ha Joon at the time did not know how to.
