Jung Hae In is undeniably one of the biggest stars today and he has led some of our favorite K-dramas and films. But before he made it big in the industry, the 33-year-old had to endure a lot as a rookie actor.

In a recent episode of the tvN variety show House On Wheels 3, Hae In made a guest appearance where he spent time with other Korean celebs in a pine forest. There was a part where they talked about his past, and Hae In opened up about his worries when he just starting his career.

"Not long after I made my debut, I managed to get a part in a historical drama. At that time, I accidentally fell off a horse. I fractured my spine then. But I didn't tell anybody about that. I just fought the pain by myself and tried my best not to show that I was in pain. I was scared that if I told them I fractured my spine, they would replace me," he said. (via SBS Star)

Hae In continued and shared how he was so desperate for the role that he had to live through the pain: "That could have easily happened because it was before any shootings for that drama took place. I was practicing my horse-riding before the actual shoot, so if they found out that I was hurt, they could have replaced me with another actor."

Hae In's determination certainly paid off and his popularity has soared over the years. His projects were well-received by the audience, like his stint in Prison Playbook where he played a commanding officer named Captain Yoo who was framed for killing a soldier.
