Yoon Jong-hoon’s Successful Main Role in Return (2018)

In 2018, Yoon Jong-hoon starred in SBS’s mystery-thriller drama Return. His role in this drama is being praised as one of his best. His hard work showed through the high rating that Return gained of up to 17.2 percent. He starred as Seo Joon-hee.

This drama is about Seo Joon-hee who finally wakes up from a long-time coma due to an attempted murder by his two friends who pushed him from a cliff. Seo Joon-hee chooses to be silent and pretends to have lost his memories rather than take revenge.

His suffering, pain, and fear showed in an emotional scene where he cried a lot and revealed his fear about his friends’ betrayal. This scene successfully stole viewers’ hearts and made them feel the deep sorrow of Seo Joon-hee.

on the Happy Together variety show, Yoon Jong-hoon was invited as a guest along with former Sistar member Dasom, Im Ta-kyung, and Hong Soo-hyun. Yong Jong-hoon revealed that many people are curious about the end of the drama when it aired. One curious person was SNSD’s Yoona! He said that Yoona texted him because she was curious about the ending, but he just replied with the emoji “no,” and everyone burst into laughter!

As is already known, Yong Jong-hoon and Yoona were co-stars in MBC’s drama The King in Love in 2017. It seems like the cast members still have a good relationship and hang out together sometimes. And, obviously, Yoona showed her support to her ex-co-star’s latest drama.
