Cartoonist/writer Joo Ho Min shared the story behind the cast of 'Along With The Gods'.

On the August 15 airing of MBC's 'Radio Star', Joo Ho Min revealed he originally wanted a different actor to play the character of Kim Ja Hong in the film version of his webtoon. 

He stated, "To be honest, the actor I had in mind was not Cha Tae Hyun but Jung Suk Yong." 

Jung Suk Young:


Joo Ho Min continued, "But I was really happy when we got Cha Tae Hyun for the role. I had an imaginary cast in my mind and then we started filming 5-6 years later. At first, I thought Cha Tae Hyun was too young for the role because Ja Hong is a character in his 40's but I knew he could well portray Ja Hong."

He added, "Cha Tae Hyun's face is like a blank page. He has a handsome face but he doesn't stand out when he's with other actors. I loved how he has a face that can be colored with anything."
