  1. @giegie moreover this article on Nate and post on Pann Nate are getting more and more attention. And to have more then 2k upvotes (and it's still not over) at Nate and more then 250k views and almost 1k upvotes on a post at Pann Nate it's really DAEBAK. Wookie and his Givenchy look is getting legendary heh. I haven't seen so much attention even during Goblin (well there was almost like that). But it bothers me that they always bring Gong Yoo to the comments and then we're reading all that fight between GY and LDW fans. Even though I agree that Wookie looks much more handsome, but why to bring him there. I mean Wookie is much more handsome then most of Korean A-list actors, but he neds better projects, not only looks, acting or charisma. And right now when he's getting so much attention he should eithr announce next drama or join populsr variety at least as a guest. how comes that he hasn't appeared in any show after Goblin? That's so weird. Btw have you seen this drama? http://www.dramabeans.com/2017/10/kbs-plans-blockbuster-spy-action-drama-prometheus-for-2018/ Sounds like a cool project which can bring actors to the new level internationally if it will not flop of course. But reading the article I don't feel lkie Wookie has chances. But he really deserve to hit big oh and continue to rise.
  2. @intrariver I'm not saying that SMA doesn't do heavy dramas at all but look at her recent dramas. They all are either romcom or light melo. I have started to like her when watched her old wovie "The naked kitchen" and it was awesome as well as her acting and charisma (so I'm aware that she can do heavier genre) there then I have followed her dramas starting from "My girlfriend is Gumiho" and I see that she likes to choose more lighthearted dramas. Maybe she's gonna to challenge herself in next role and I'm curious if one of my dream parings for Wookie can work out. I haven't watched her old dramas simply bcs I'm rarely watch old dramas but after reading your impression from A love to kill I have started it (even though I'm not into Rain) and I like it so far especially her character. Let's see if drama gods and PDs will hear our wish and cast them together. If they will Wookie and Minah will kill with their chemistry and visuals. Ofc the writing should be good. @theinvinciblered I'm gonna to order few copy for myself as well. ^^ I love the style of this pictorial. I think that it's one of the best High Cut has done with male cover so far. And no one had 17 pages among their recent male actors, idols or groups. Normally they have 13, max 15 together with interview and cover. Wookie is an inspiration haha.
  3. @longleg I'm not sure what exactly has happen to Leedongwookaddicts. It can be just occasional cleaning of fan accounts, or it was someone's complain (it's unlikely since there was nothing to complain on except maybe watermarks on pics which have been posted). Another version that it was hackers' attack. The official reason was violation of Instagram's rules. Nevertheless it has gone and even after petition nothing has changed. Working team no decides what to do further since there always will be a risk that another hackers attack will happen but I want it to be opened again since Wookie's Bday is coming and I'd like to launch Bday project from Global Fans and who can help better then LDWaddics. But they won't have followers if they'll start new account. Such an awkward situation when I check IG for Wookie's updates in top posts all Goblin related stuff (either Pichi couple or Gobride couple or bromance) because those accounts which have been active during and after Goblin have got lots of followers same as LDWaddicts sigh. I'd with at least Dwholic was more active in posting. @WookD Idk what to think but as I said before it's either he's preparing himself and crowd for comeback (or at least announcement) and it's sort of PR and background for his upcoming announcement of new drama, or he's still in demand to be featured on cover even when he doesn't have any upcoming projects. Looking at High Cut's covers history all covers (at least recent year) have featured either idols/actors who have announced their comeback already and cover is sort of promotion, or they have ongoing projects or they have recently finished their projects/comeback. There were no stars who're in the middle of choosing their next project. In any case I'm proud of Wookie that he has made the cover when Goblin's effect has almost gone and he hasn't announced next project. but I still hope that the reason of his cover is sort of "hey, people, do you remember me? Keep your eye on what I will choose. I will announce it shotly" and not "hey, people, do you remember me? Keep your eye on what I will choose but I don't know when it will happen". I honestly don't see any potential nearest drama for Wookie which is preparing for casting already. There are lots of dramas announced like the one from Secret and Mask writer but no news at all. And all more or less potential dramas are getting cast like it has happen with "My ahjossi" as @giegie has mentioned. But I agree with you chingu that it's better to wait and choose good script then to take smth just to be in game. He needs to join big game. And most of recent dramas have achieved such an average results. Even Temperature of love has started from quite low ratings although they're first in their time slot. What I don't want is his next drams to overlap with Hong sister's drama and then KES's and NHK's. Ideally I want him to choose his next role by himself and even apply to production team as he did with Goblin. If he likes smth but he doesn't get offer for it (instead he gets lots of others which are good but similar with hi previous ones) then I wish him to do the same as with Grim Reaper's role and get it for himself. I want Wookie to play with Shin Min Ah or Gong Hyo Jin since they both are free and they'd match perfectly...but for romcom and Wookie doesn't look for it. Both ladies don't take serious genre dramas. But who knows maybe they'll challange themselves this time. SJH would be perfect match for Wookie if he'd like to take romcom. But he's looking for smth serious, our true actor. HHJ will be an option for more serious drama (even though knetz still hate her), but she's in movie as I heard.
  4. @WookD it's so silent lately. FM tour has ended and everyone have faded. :(( And here we are just few of us I guess untill new drama. Like Wookie texted at VLIVE chat "Cheer up!" I guess he told it for everyone including himself. I already love new pictorial but I wonder if he will be on the cover or not. normally from what I see in kent when celeb/group of celebs are making cover of magazine they either have upcoming project or have recently finished one. if Wookie will be on cover this means that he has upcoming project or he's still considered hot topic even afret so many months after Goblin has ended. I honestly prefer first option. If he'll have just pictorial...well this means nothing but he's active hard working namja who wants to deliver his hotness to his fans and not only. cr: Naver blog
  5. @giegie agree with you that Wookie most likely won't go for that melo centered around old woman. That news has cought my attention as well since we have been waiting for details on new OHE's team drama for a while hehe. But Ahjossi who's around 40 and girl around 20? Can't believe they will make Wookie look like ahjossi unless the girl will be really young. And I'm fed up of ahjossi-romances already But I think we should wait for more info on this drama. If the role is serious and the plot interesting who knows maybe it might work out for Wookie. I have feeling that Wookie won't choose any fantasy (or at least too fantasy genre) drama especially about fallen angels. And he won't choose romcom unless it will be smth extraordinary and special like that drama about poetry and hospital @intrariver has mentioned. On the other hand I agree with @WookD that Wookie is serious guy who likes to plan everything in advance and if he has mentioned that he'll return to acting this year in March then he has already smth in plan. But maybe the production has stucked somewhere in the middle and they're figuring out smth to proceed with announcing, filming, etc. Who knows maybe he has already signed for that project and is waiting for shooting to start. Or he hasn't signed and because of delays with that project he's reviewing others and that's why it takes so long. I have looked through @intrariver's selection and that's what I feel could be possible (taking into account what Wookie has mentioned in his interviews): The Happiest Time of My Life - Secret Love is in top-5 of my fav dramas and although Mask was a bit weird it wasn't bad as well. Writer likes Hotel King style plots about revenge and hidden secrets and I believe that's what Wookie could choose. Apperantly this drama has stucked in the middle so maybe that's why no news yet. You Who Forgot Poetry - could be an option since it will be real life and down to earth drama, but nothing more about the plot and it looks like there will be multiple main characters and lines which I don't want to have in next drama of our man. About Time - the plot sounds really nice and even though it's fantasy drama it still looks quite real life and fresh, so who knows... City of Stars - Si-fi drama sounds refrehing but it has been already long time no news about it and Hyun Bin was in talks to lead... Doubtful victory - sounds serious and "wrongly imprisoned" a well in HK or La Dolce Vita style and I guess Wookie is missing such heavy stories and it could be a potential choice. others sounds either too fantasy or too romcom, or simply have cast in talks or seem too far away or unlikely like "Beauty inside". but who knows... Then we have My Ahjossi - which apart of the fact Wookie still looks like oppa even for 20 years old girls could be good option. And one more drama which has cought my attention is remake (but still I doubt remake is good choice though) of Japanese drama Hundred Million Stars From the Sky - read the discription girls, omg I want Wookie to play male lead who's mysterious and dark and another male lead suspects he's a killer. It reminds me La Dolce Vita and it corresponds to what Wookie has mentioned that he want to play in serious drama, serious role or villain, no romcom, no fantasy and no romance centered drama. Yes, it's not medical drama or lawyer but it sounds like melo-thriller but still with love line. I guess it could be a chance to play villian-like role but who's protagonist in drama. Something that he did before in LDV and a bit in HK. What do you think about this draa guys? The problem I see that it's not even in work and has been announced as potential project almost half a year ago..actually right after Wookie has hinted that he'll come back to acting this year...but probably just a coincidence heh. http://www.dramabeans.com/2017/04/tvn-to-remake-japanese-drama-hundred-million-stars-from-the-sky/ btw the drama I was thinking from the start as potential good project for Wookie, Temperature of love, will definately become very successful. It's already highly anticipated in Korea.
  6. hi, Wookie's stan! Sorry for being mia. First biz trips then vacation. But I'm back and will try to help you here @WookD at least with conversations. Thanks a lot for keeping this thread updated! And I love your new nick name. So what are your bets guys, will Wookie come back to the acting this year or not? Have you noticed some potential projects for him @giegie ? There was rumor coming from some fans that he has chosen melodrama next. What if it's true...I have seen the news of posible old Noh Hee Kyung melodrama's remake for November on MBC but looks like there is no place for Wookie in that drama. What else? Let's try at least to find hope @noname111 are you still with no access to Soompi's account?
  7. @charlotte0303 yes, I was referring to Seo Hyun Jin. Sorry, I always confuse spelling of their names. @noname111 love your new avatar haha. Regarding Fms. If I would seat on Seoul's fm at least in row 7-8 I'd pick up it as the best. As to SG fm I think I should place it on 1st place togethere with JP one hehe. I've understood that the most important in Fm are your seats and oppa's mood haha. SHJ is bae. I have suggested her in my top list of actresses only based on her acting in Oh Hae Young haha. I liked her a lot although her beauty is not my type. But she has strong charizma. Anyways now I hope Wookie won't take this drama. @giegie yeh, I have noticed that drama from Oh Hae Young writer and I would prefer him to go with that writer as well, but what makes it quite unrealistic is that drama will air in 2018 and as to Wookie he should come back with drama by the end of 2017...but who knows maybe he has meant that he'll begin filming by the end of 2017. As to Temperature of love, this writer is ok for me. At least I prefer her more then KES in terms of style. Doctor was typical rom com drama but High Society was quite refreshing, I have read description of her novel on which "Tempersture of love" will be based and I liked it, it was refreshing. BUT! I don't want anymore him to be the part of this drama! Cos kim Jae Wook has been casted as the second lead. It's not Bubblegum, Blade Man or Hotel King where second leads have been not that attractive, but KJW is quite hot topic nowadays and I don't want to read permanent comments of people who will ship him with female lead and state that he should be main lead. I can agree only if male lead's character will be perfectly written and there won't be lot of space in ppl's hearts for secondary lead. But...oh man, can you imagine how many worries we'll have as fans. It's almost like Goblin #2 just Wookie will be lead this time. Lead who;ll share screen time and storyline with another actor who's loved a lot. I don't know what to think anymore...I want him to announce project faster. Another issue for Temperature of Love that it still doesn't have finalized casting but the airing date is rumored to be mid September (after Falsify which is 32 eps (and its actually 16 eps). Too short to film quality drama tbh. Unless they will postpone it.
  8. Sorry for being missing, chingu! @noname111 chingu your recap is awesome! I don't know even what to add haha. Just agree with you, that Tokyo FM was so awesome. For me this Fm now on the 1st place haha. And I will definately do my best to join another Wookie's JP fm. Wookie aka sweet lolipop/marshmellow/watermelon ice cream/cup cake was just DAEBAK cool! I want more haha. Will watch replay now with subs. Chingus who're eagerly waiting for Wookie's next drama announcement ( I remember we have actively discussed it with @giegie quite a while ago hehe) I think I have chances that my dream will come true. Remember drama I wanted Wookie to take? "Temperature of love". And actress I wanted Wookie to act with? Song Hyo Jin. Looks like she'll play female lead in this drama, there is still no male lead, this drama will air end October - November, the main lead dreams to become French chef (it's particular profession), from what I have found out about novel male lead will be Lee Tae Jo like...all made for Wookie...like he wants...except that drama should be rom com and Wookie said that he doesn't want to take rom com next. But who knows...I don't see any other potential drama for him planned to air in 2017 without male lead. So I will keep praing that project he has chosen even before his Seoul's Fm ( I belive that he did it 99%) will be this drama "Temperature of love"
  9. @MaysoonD sorry, chingu, life and work obliges and distracts from fangirling after my return back from Japan trip. Will try to share my experience a bit later heh. Now to our interesting topic hehe. Many has been already said and I will try not to repeat same thoughts. But I share your fears totally @winterdew @joyezz @missbuttercup I feel like it's not right timing for Wookie to get married. I have shared my thoughts multiple times here and they still remain the same. And I really believe in what I'm saying afrer following his various interviews and shows last 3 years - Wookie won't be happy even married and with kids if he'll struggle to get nice project and will stuck again in same position he was before Bubblegum. That's actually the main point of our fears as his hardcore fans @intrariver heh (btw thank you for your opinion, it's always nice to know different way of thinking then my own). We're not delusional fake fans who'll stop being his fans, following his news and project after he'll get marry. I think you have missunderstood @winterdew and in your post I see it as well, the reflection of our main concern. Wookie is not big and stable enough to risk with his career now. And marriage is risk. Cos it's hit or miss but mostly miss in kent to get marry when you're not A-list actor. You have mentioned Won Bin, Ji Sung and Go Soo as examples. but as far as I know they have been more stable in industry when they have tight knots. Ji Sung has married very famous and highly loved Lee Bo Young, Won Bin is legend who's comback is highly anticipated always, I don't know much about Go Soo, just that he's not really hot lately but still he's not only drama actor, but movie actor as well. Do you remember any sucessful story of marriage of actor who're not in A-list or not really well established and highly loved by masses like Ji Sung or Won Bin? I don't recall any My oppinion he still needs one or better two successful projects to secure his future in acting then he can do same as SJK did recently. Ind it's few years more. That's what @winterdew was talking about. And with this potential sucessful projects he might gain more love from fans all over the world, but what's more important for kent is get recognition from masses who're watching dramas in Korea. Now he has all chances for that. you know why Wookie was so upset after Hotel King, Blade Man and even before? People has called him "actor who can't choose right projects". And in Korea there is no trust in such actors. Maybe you have noticed knetz comments like "you can always trust Lee Min Ho/Gong Yoo/Song Joon Ki/etc", cos ppl know that those actors will choose hit projects and that's the green light for knetz to anticipate their dramas/movies. That's what Wookie should achieve and currently after hit Goblin he should secure his place in this category with successful leading role. Yes, you still can be unlucky with projects like Gong Yoo had with Big or Kim Soo Hyun with movie Real but people will forgive one fail if you're already in that A-list. Reffering to the fangirling aspect. Have you seen Won Bin, Go Soo or Ji Sung holding Fm tours after their marriage? I know Ji Sung did small fms in Korea and Japan after KMHM, most likely Go Soo did smth similar. I don't see neither of them during my trips in Korea (I go there quite often and always notice all advertisings with actors). The only one visible CF with Ji Sung is the one with his wife, they're modelling something for house. And besides KMHM (the one with already loved couple from his pre-marriage Secret time)Ji Sung hasn't got any credible drama with love line and he's doing more dramas which are not romantic. I know one Wookie's fan who's Ji Sung's fan as well but I have noticed how passionate she's about Wookie and how calm she's with Ji Sung. But it hasn't happen in one day after he has got married, it's slow but inavitable process. Ji Sung doesn't have passinate fans who're following him in airports and overseas schedules, overall his fan base is just supportive. It's widely known that single men wil have more attention and love then married. And for some fans it will be awkward to follow married man to the airport or visit his fms or running fan accounts. It's normall for fangirls to be passionate more about single celeb then about married one. So all those fans who will just follow him are fake? Or they all have dreamed about dating oppa? I don't think that's the case. It's just a definition of fangirling over actor or celeb (even musicians sometimes). Some of Wookie's hardcore fans who doesn't want him to get married soon have families or boyfriends and you think that they want to date Wookie? Or I'm spending lots of time, money and energy (as well as @winterdew and other fans) to organize support projects because I'm dreaming to date him? Heh I'm not even getting any benefits from it like personal contact with Wookie or else. We all understand that he's idol who's far away and that he'll find his Korean girlfriend one time and will marry her, will have cute Daebakie-like kids and hopefully will join TROS. And we will be happy for him but same time we will feel upset cos it's normal for PASSIONATE fans. Idk...maybe it's hard for you to understand us and you think we're delusional fans cos you're not that passionate over him as some of us are cos I remember that you have stated that it's hard for you to watch other Wookie's drama where his partner is not YIN? And I know that that's common for shippers. Unlike shippers we enjoy every his drama especially love lines cos Wookie is so good in romance. And we want to continue to enjoy his dramas further. But if he will get marry now he might stop doing romance dramas and it will definately make his passionate fans be less passionate since at the end of the day most of us are watching kdramas because of romances. And what if he will marry woman who you won't like? Not his perfect kdrama co-star like SongSong or Ji Sung/Lee Bo Eun or nation's little sister like LMH's date Suzy? What if he''ll marry someone who's getting hate or not loved enough to make such a huge media play as they did with SongSong? This might affect his career even more if he'll decide to get married before securing his place in A-list. So please don't judge or hate us, passionate fans for not pushing him towards marriage right now haha. It's definately not because of us being delusional. It's the group of factors. What I know for sure that we, hardcore fans will follow his career nevertheless but will all of us support and follow him to that extent that we'll be inspired and passionate enough to create buzz around him, organize support projects, follow him on his Fms and run fan accounts? Not sure. And not only international fans, but Koreans as well. That's why he should receive first SJK's or at least Ji Sung's status to afford himself marriage in such a cruel Jungle called Korean Entertainment. Then his projects will be highly anticipated and loved nevertheless single he or married. And there won't be much need in our passionate support, cos he'll have lots of admirers just because he's top actor and always hot topic. Sorry for long post but i always fail making it short. :(( Btw here is unsucessful example of popular idol who has got married. That's kent huh. I believe this will never happen to Wookie but that's just another side of marriage in kent industry and how crazy people can be there: https://www.soompi.com/2017/07/06/super-juniors-sungmin-apologizes-fans-says-hell-withdraw-upcoming-album/?from=seealso/
  10. Today I've woke up in Wookie's heaven with KKE post. But agree with @noname111 why not more!!! It's coverage of his 4(!!!) events. And lots of pics are either from deep side view or we have seen something similar from fans or press. But well, 10-15 pics are really daebak. They are showing us how you can film magazine's pictorial on ransoms streets without equipment but simply with right model who's work of art as most of you have admitted. I will forgive KKE if they will make another Naver post soon with his CFs bts. The most I want Pizza Alvolo's bts. And well, I want Wookie film pictorial for magazine outdoor. Even if it won't be Paris or Hawaii, can they just let his beauty shine on Seoul's or Jeju streets? Thanks for posting all those awesome pics and vids, gals!
  11. Good news is that looks like Wookie was filming for Liz K yesterday. If it's true we'll have another heavenly handsome Wookie in their new CF. Wonder if it's for First C serum or other product. Thisperson has done this flower boquet for him to hold during CF filming for Liz K. I love Wookie with flowers. Can't wait to see the result and hopefully there will be new pics besides CF. In a meantime, why not to post other CFs bts.... @orihimegirl yup, he was with Jump. Idk much about this company but from what I've heard from Koreans that they have tried to milk their cow after My Girl and then SOAW without even having exclusive contract. Wookie had nice CF selection after SOAW, but I think that KKE with whom he has done those CFs hasn't played big role in signing Cass, Chevrolett or Downy. It's Wookie who has attracted them.
  12. Sorry for being missing. I need to work to afford Japan trip lol. @noname111 you know like I want him to visit fashion week. But knowing how week KKE is...and he hasn't even been on Seoul Fashion Week. And yesterday there was Louis Vuitton event but he wasn't there...GY was instead (suddenly he has started attending fashion events). I'm too skeptical about KKE's power. None of their artists haven't visited such overseas events, right? I know that none of them are that perfect for fashion purposes as Wookie but well you know what I mean. We can dream about it, and cross everything we can cross (haha, that was so funny), but this uncertain situation about Wookie's future in that cruel world is killing me. Among fashion weeks the biggest possibility is still Milano with Ferragamo since Wookie had few projects with them and has been mentioned on their IG. I'm not greedy, even one event either in Milano or Paris will be enough. Please, fashion gods, listen to us!!! @giegie Thank you so much for your recap of MC's vid. From press con and fm vids I also have feeling that they haven't been comfortable with each other. So Wookie himself has asked MC to take picture together? That's so weird. I have checked IG of this MC and he has posted selfie with So Jo Sub praising him. From what you have said about MC I don't think he's professional haha. Cos it's his job to make artist feel comfortable by studying his works and interviews, to make so jokes which will open him. And he can't compare him with PBG or GOT7. At least he has realized it. Actually the best MC was in Seoul haha, cos it was Wookie himself. But Jo Se Ho in the second half was great as well, cos he knows Wookie and he knows how to make him do things he would refuse to do if someone else would ask haha (like showing abs...2 times). As to agencies...Gals I know that other agencies have their flaws as well and that they're focusing on that person who's the hottest currently paying less attention to others (like in PBG and SJK situation. I also have feeling that they have somehow put SJK in PBG's shadow), but that's understandable since unfortunately all about the money. But Wookie is now one of those who brings money to KKE. He's the hottest among their artists at least in Korea (LKS is hot more overseas and KJW still has ongoing drama with unstable ratings situation, YYS is popular but not that much as it was 2 years ago). I remember that after DOTS all their efforts were on KJW. They have released so many bts pics with her. And made Naver posts. Why they don't do it with Wookie? Yes, I want justice to my bias haha. Especially when he's still in demand. I also know all those agencies you have mentioned - their strength and weaknesses. Wookie now is in average one who has not much power, it doesn't have any super star in it but they're focusing a lot on their current trendy stars still lacking power to maintain few of them same time, it's PR department sucks and still I don't see what benefits KKE has now being canabalized by Starship. Soyou could come to Wookie's FM as guest? What is the most positive in KKE for Wookie and what has actually brought him there and why he stays with them is their agreement that he has lots of freedom. Freedom to choose projects, freedom to choose CFs, to attend event or not. As you have mentioned before he's bossy, he manages his own team there and he decides what and how to do. Unlike with Jump Entertainment when they have obliged him to make numerous CFs without even having proper contract. But with KKE Wookie will not rise to the top. Only if he will be lucky enough to get few more popular projects in a row at least with 1st position in their time slotes. Then he will receive title as rating-driven actor and people will trust him and his choices. In this case PR will be important but not as much as now. Honestly I'm worried about him and his future. From what I see I like Jo Jung Seok's JJH's agency. They always have great projects and lots of high end endorsements. And it doesn't seem that they're lacking freedom. But I believe Wookie will stay with KKE. Thus I hope he will be able to maintain his popularity by his own if KKE can't do that. At least he should visit some of his friends in their varieties. He has so many friends among hosts. Really hope he will react on 'Life Bar''s PD invitation even though we will not get english subs for this show. He can reunite with his SDY and this can be nice media occasion and funny discussion. @noname111 Your contests are always fun and a mood booster. I can feel your withdrawal, chingu! 3 weeks till D-Day. I can imagine how much time you have spent collecting, choosing, editing pics to make this game. My applause! Ofc I love all squads. But I will choose Squadra Azzuro since I always on the "blue" side. It's one of my all time favorite color, this color suits Wookie so perfectly (no one can wear navy blue like Wooki does it) and it's color of my fav football team as well hehe. 2nd place will go to white squad, 3rd to Black. As to the leader, 1st place I would give to Ginseng Leader ( I want to see more of Wookie in red), 2nd place to Mr. Vampire, 3rd to Mr.Grim Reaper. Btw @giegie you was right, I was satisfied that it wasn't Wookie who has been suggested "Hospital ship". Not bcs of HJW but bcs of writer and director. But looks like the place is still vacant. Now I even pray that he won't take this role. It's red light when someone is rejecting the role. I still remember how he has saved Blade Man when Ji Sung has declined role few weeks before airing. But it didn't bring Wookie recognition...just title of actor who can't pick successful projects. I don't mind Wookie to spread his activity among Asia, even China (cos it will bring us international fans more possibilities to attend his events In future) but they should balance it with activities in Korea. So far he hasn't done any fan signing events while actors/actresses who're less popular are doing lots of them. But the variety of brands he is endorsing now unlikely will make Fan signing event. He should take another clothing brand and/or cosmetics.
  13. @onrainydays47 oh so you're initially GY fan? I'm even more proud of Wookie that he made GY fan to fall for him. Cos normally ppl fall for KES male leads easily and if you already was a fan then you should double/tripple your affection. @deurinlee btw welcome here! So you was at his Jakarta fm? So cool. More and more fans here who had real life meeting with him. I really hope all of us here will have their chance to meet him. @PuppywookieI also have actors/celebs who I don't like at all and think that they deliberetly sucks to those who have fame and are not the best ppl, but I understand that it might be only my feeling or the way I read their gazes/facial expressions. Before falling for Wookie I have watched few JIS works and then interviews/varieties. He always have this cold vibe and his eyes are not shining brightly and his external appearance always makes him perfect guy to play bastards. I guss this might confuse viewers and make them think that he's like this in real live. But I don't think that he was jealous or smth of Wookie in that program, cos he's already A-list actor. Yes, he's not that mainstream as PBG or SJK, but his movie is second successful movie this year and his dramas always become very successful and loved. For my regret (haha) Wookie has nothing for him to be jealous about...well except Wookie's wittiness, sence of humor,variety skills and sunshine personality. Don't bother yourself with actors you don't like! Better to concentrate our energy on supporting Wookie and investigate his next project hehe. @giegie I know we always want more when it comes to our biases. Honestly I was expecting more coverage from HK and SG press as well and that they will ask some interesting and witty questions but they haven't. ottoke. And now we'll get Marie Claire Taiwan only in August. But who knows, maybe in that magazine he will reveal his next project. or it will be already revealed and he'll talk about it. As to KKE I don't say that they are doing nothing in comparing with their top artists (LKS, KJW, YYS), I compare them with other agencies who're doing better for their mainstream artists. Right now Wookie is their most mainstream since his drama was not only hit in ratings but it was most talked about drama and GR was one of the most loveble characters in both 2016 and 2017. YYS has got hit drama too, but no offence his drama hasn't become big enough hit in Asia,that's the answer why he had only Seoul's FM and didn't have Asia tour. Among KKE artist recently only KJW and LKS can be considered Hallyu stars besides Wookie. For LKS obviously no need to make Asia tour cos he has permanent tours with RM and other overseas promotional events. KJW was busy filming dozens CFs and making Fan signing events after DOTS. From what we already know it was Wookie's decision to make Asia tour to meet his overseas fans. But while he's traveling Koreans are slowly forgetting him. And without constant support from media and work or KKE by the end of his Fm tour none will care about photobook or articles or even Naver post with his SG, HK or Jakarta fms which were few months ago. Without fan signing events or releasing news about his successful overseas fms ppl will forget him. And KKE are loosing the chance to prolong his popularity in Korea. I'm not following lots of actors and their agencies but I always see what Soop is doing because of bromance fans who reposts everything in Twitter as well as I read news and permanently check what's going on on Naver or Daum. Soop also has actress who's currently starring in "Suspicious partner", but they're doing outstanding job with keeping GY on the surface. they have released Naver posts on main page with tons of pics and vids after every his fm and several from his CF shootings. not talking about press relese articles they have released immediately after each event. What have we got from KKE? The only post after Seoul's Fm. No articles about his overseas fms, no pics, vids, no bts from Alvolo, Oliver Sweeney or Post. They have released only few bts pics from his Jimmy Choo pictorial, that's it. From my friends I know that not only Soop is active, but JCW's agency as well, LJK has his own web site, etc. And from what I know from KKE directly Wookie as well as othertop actors has his own team (manager, PR manager, photographer and sometimes cameramen). It's besides common KKE staff who works there. How comes that they can't release more on one of their breadwinner and maintain his popularity on local market. They have dedicated stuff for that.
  14. @giegie Oh it was hard to bring cameras in both SG and BKK as well. They have confiscated them on entrance. I have managed to hide it both times cos I have small one and I put separately lens and camera in sunglasses bags and cases hah but they have confiscated it at the beggining of both fms when cought me taking shots. But fans who're so called stalkers with huge lenses know some tricks and they know how to bring camera inside and how to snap pics carefully. that's why they don't buy tickets in first rows or aisle seats cos they have other mission haha (although one of his Korean fans who's pictures we all adore has lost all taken pics in BKK cos has got caught by security). But I case of INA I was talking more about press then fans. Press can bring lenses inside both press con and Fm, but why almost all pics are like taken on Fancam... Press and fan pics are the only sourse of our happiness cos KKE are the worst agency ever (I'm sooo pissed with their unprofessionalism). After his overseas Fm tour have started they haven't released neith bts pics nor vids, they have barely posted few bts pics from his mags pictorials and absolutely nothing on his CFs. I respect Wookie's ties with KKE, but they can't maintain his popularity since they do nothing. Not talking about strengthen it. He has got GR's hit role by himself and that's how he has got CFs and FM tour. All they should do is to organize fms and maintain his top star status in Korea...which they don't do. I'm so mad oh. As to your discussion about next KES drama @longleg @giegie @joyezz I have feeling that it will be JIS since he has sent love calls to KES and he matches the image of described character. Idk about JJS, I don't see him there as KES typical superhero lead. Another option is KSH before heading to army and they can still make him look a bit more mature. YAI is not KES's style for male lead, he's not that big. PBG...I hope she won't choose him otherwise I will be totally disapointed in KES. He's too young and fresh to be her male lead. From all of them I'd prefer JIS even though I will be dissapointed in him. After his outstanding drama and movie chices he will go to cheesy KES's writing. But who knows, maybe she will surprise this time and will change my mind about her leading characters. Then I will be ok if Wookie will become male lead in one of her future dramas haha @giegie regarding ginseng CF. Yes, it's same brand as JJS is endorsing. But besides JJS (who endorses sticks only) there are 4-5 other actors who endorse other products. Among them LMH, actress from Personal Taste SYJ, main lead from Romantic Doctor and few others. This brand is more for foreigners (except some products) and Koreans says that it's the biggest ginseng brand in Korea but all ginseng brands are oriented on export. Thus you can see advertising mostly at Incheon duty free or at Myeondong specialized shops for tourists. So Wookie is chosen as their face for chinese speaking region, that means most likely it will be like Downy endorcement when his CF will be playing in certain countries, but not in Korea. And his promo pics will be used overseas. Although it's possible that his face will be at Incheon or Myeondong as well, since it's mostly for tourists. Knetz reaction on this news was priceless "Why not in Korea?", "I want him to be ambassador for Korea as well". Cos such endorsement means there might be fan signing events and they know it and regret that it's not for Korea. Actually here I don't like KKE strategy as well. Ecxept "On the air" he doesn't have any activities in Korea. They should pay more attention to the local market otherwise people will forget about him. Why not to do fan signing event with one of his existing brands? why not to make at least once a month Naver post with tons of HQ pics their photographer is taking during all of his Fms and shootings? So lame oh...
