  1. Ran into this clip, and I remembered this guy is JH's friend, right? It seems like the last few years have been quite difficult, and strangely, his life, as a result, now parallels JH's life- looks like there was a scandal around him which resulted in him leaving all of his shows, but this changed him to the better- his health became better, became closer to his wife, had a daughter - so now he has two boys and one girl! he also got worried about being there for his new baby- so he stopped drinking! Very reminiscent of what happened with JH, just in a different timeline I wonder if JH was there for him through this-
  2. The Mentalist I never liked... Don't like rude abusive protagonists. For the same reason I don't like House either. Have you seen Simon Baker's previous show, called "The Guardian"? Such a complex interesting character in a great premise. If it wasn't for the annoying Lulu, I'd say that show was perfect! I highly reccomend it
  3. I randomly tried several shows recently, but ,like you, either dropped them in the first episode or couldn't bring myself to continue watch. I finished The Killing vote just because I was curious how it will end, but I really didn't enjoy it. I'm sure there are good shows (I liked The Glory and The good cop II), but they seem to be few and far between, and they usually will be first offered to those that are considered to be A list... By now, all I'm hoping is that JH will go for a remake or do a version of a good foreign show, which will ensure a good script.
  4. another promo for JH's appearance in the other SBS show- I on the other hand watched a Kdrama named The Killing Vote, just because I liked the actress Lim Ji-Yeon in The Glory, and- I hated it! It's so frustrating how these K cop shows are all the same- a veteran cop that is slightly corrupt but not entirely, a younger cop (usually a woman) that is an extremely honest cop, a bunch of "supporting" cops in the team for mostly comedic relief, one main cop that later will be reveald to having a secret, and a bad guy that is usually the most developed character. These shows will sometimes have hints of a romance, but usually they will fizzle or turn out to be very boring. This show had all these elements, but in this case none of the main characters were likable or relatable. The lead actress was trying, but she didn't have much to work with. We were being told that the male lead character was wild and crazy, but we almost never saw that. Good looking actor, but very flat. The main plot horriblle and again shows complete disregard for human lives that is so common to Kdramas . The biggest dissappointment to me was the actor playing the "antagonist", Park Sung-Woong. I know this guy is suppose to be an A list actor in Korea, but from the few projects I've seen him in, he seems to be the same in every role. All in all- I don't recommend. Again, I completely understand why JH is struggling to find good roles...
  5. Just saw the trailer for The Acolyte, that has lee jung-jae cast in it, and it looks to be the same Disney nonsense. Notice- all the Korean actors that recently got a role in a HW production- all of them were cast in a bad Disney project and they didn't gain anything from it! By now it's almost certain that there is going to be a HW movie for JH, I'm just hoping it will be differernt from what these poor actors got
  6. I've been watching Modern Family and I have been thinking JH needs to go Sofia Vergara's rout- no need to try and make his English sound perfect. Lean into the accent and go for the funny. Six episodes... I wonder what that is about... Glad to see he's showing swords fighting. If whatever project he's doing in historical, than I'm confident JH can make it big
  7. I didn't say he doesn't want to do mainstream roles. I said he wants something more. However- If you look at all the last shows he has done, none of them are what I'd call mainstream- starting from MC to TMWYS and BH. in all these shows JH's character wasn't the usual character you see in Kdramas and all of them were deceptive- all of them made you think one thing, while they were another. I don't think it's a coincidence. Even his character is the horrible Family was unusual. So, you know what? Even though JH has not said it, this is what I'm saying- yeah. JH has had enough with korean mainstream shows. Is the movie successful?
  8. I don't think he meant he has only one challenge in him, I think he means he wants to challenge himself one last time. Accepting main stream Kdrama roles is not a challenge for him. You can agree with his choice or not. It's his life, and I respect him wanting something else for himself. What he's doing is super couragous and risky. He himself said he doesn't know if he'll succede, but he has to try. I guess in a way I can relate since in the last 10 years, the moment I got to a place where I was doing well in a job and felt like I got the hang of it, my instinct was to move on and look for a bigger challenge. 5 years in a job I was doing well in, and I left and looked for another challenge. And now I'm 3 years in my new job, doing well, and again- my instinct is to move on. but since essentially I moved from one organizaion to another, what JH is doing is so much more impressive to me, as he is building something completely new. And I respect that. This is something I aspire to... Do I wish for another FTLY or another show as success as Chuno? sure, but it looks like shows like that are scarse. I also am not sure his path is the right one, as i think his emphasis should be on script, and not action. But- the bottom line is- we don't know what he's planning, so all we can do is wait and see.
  9. @YouwinJH I think you are missing a very central point- what JH wrote in his latest post. He wrote " I want to challenge one more time in my life..." I don't know if this is what he means, but the fact is- JH has already done it all. He has had a huge hit and several big ones. He did, not one,but several iconic roles. In cinema? he has not had such big success, but he did make some good movies. So what now? Do the same thing over and over again? Fight for another role and hope it will be a success? In most professions, veterans get more responsibility and more influence,while only in acting, veterans have less opportunities and less influence. And JH knows it. JH has always spoken about himself as an office worker, and as such he is giving himslf a promotion. Is he worthy? For sure. Is it a risk? For sure. Do I support him? For damn sure!
  10. Since he's now without an agent and it looks like there is no one really in charge of his promotion, maybe he should hire someone to have a working plan that is oriented towards promotion... These random posts seem to essentially just be a reflection of his random thoughts when he's bored
