Joowon cries... I cry too~ All the hardships and happiness that we went through together the past couple of years... It has been a roller-coaster ride being in this fandom. Joowon has had to work so h

Hai girls! Sorry I've been out of it for the past couple of days. I didnt have time to go to soompi, hadnt even back-tracked the pages since Saturday and my phone takes the longest time ever to upload

The reason why JW was bending down and looking at the man. Cr as tagged. Many asked me why I like JW and why I like him for so long?  THIS. Plus his acting.

sdee who watched last night's Healing Camp shared her thoughts with me

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THIS IS SDEE'S PERSONAL OPINION. DO READ WITH DISCRETION 

edited on writer's request

Also, as you know JW's ep of Healing Camp aired.  I have to say, it teared me up.  JW is really genuine, sincere, and brutally honest to a point of being brave.  He bore his everything out.  As you know, JW is not the typical Hallyu actor type where they must be trained how to answer questions in a way to avoid the real core of the answer it's asking for... but very factory like feel(?) although sounds polished.  
 
anyway, JW answered every question coming his way with real sincerity and brutal honesty with genuine JW's heart that always touches the receipient's heart.  
But due to this, the antis are up at roar again.
 
To give you a short of the issue is the talk touched upon JW's acting life and his belief about his acting path... anyway, he was asked a question of are there any actors he feels jealous of.  Being JW, he answered honestly and sincerely, that there are many and he struggled with this at one time too and consulted his sunbaes about it.  
 
He further said that he was kept repeatedly asked from reporters that although he's dramas were so successful, he seems different than other actors in his age group.  One ex/ is JW is rarely seen on CF's while his age group who had successful drama(s) always can be spotted on TV for CF.
JW said he contemplated on this to give a genuinely thoughtful answer back to the reporters... and he said he concluded that he must be going the different road than others at this time.
 

JW said he may later in his life, may choose to go that road himself but at this time, he is going the road of focusing only on acting.  And it was evident he really struggled with this so much that he spoke with sunbaes such as Jung Woong-In and Yoo Hae-Jin seriously.  One of the statement from Woong-In must have hit accord with JW.  Woong-In being the actor who seeks stages in between dramas further sharpen his acting ability told JooWon to have the self-confidence and pride about being an actor that's also on stage.  He says he has the pride of being the Musical and Stage actor as well as acting on brown screen.  Now you know this kind of subject with any real answer is like a taboo for actors in his age.  But he further stated that he feels that he has chosen the different road than his age groups but in the end he is telling himself that he's going to be acting until he dies and let's see who's still there/around at that time.  This could sound very cocky but it came from his deep believe of the path he has chosen... and I also think this is how he is consoling himself by telling himself this at time every time reporters and antis/other fans compare him vs other actors... (there have been many comments from both reporters as well as antis/other fans that although JW is successful in dramas, he does not have the star-ability.  Also that he's at a lower level than those around his age group.  I am sure that really hurt his pride as JW's humble in every way except when it comes to his acting.  He is proud of it as well as he has lot of greed for acting.  This he is not hiding at all.  

It's evident he has so much pride for the time he put in his acting in 20's and how much he believes in his acting ability that he has no regrets for his life lived for acting in his 20's and how excitedly he is looking forward to his 30's acting life.  
 

Anyway, the reason why I am writing this is to prepare you so you know where this statement of JW comes from what and how it was prompted/provoked to bring forth his answer that he gave.
 
All in all, Healing Camp was successful in showing real genuine JW that we know and fell in love with.  Thus, that SBS comments are done by the real employees of SBS...evidently they fell in love with him as well.  I am also hearing so many accounts how the people who watched fell in love with JW and became his fans or at least supporters and giving applause for his bravery for choosing acting first before being a star.
 
But at the same time, anti's are running wild... kkk  I am sure they are fans of these other young actors although JW did not name any names although MC's asked for it.  
 
Long email again... sorry.. ^^
 
But as JW fan, I say Healing Camp is a must watch... just like Win Win couple years ago.

@mrdimples: How would I describe Joo Won just from that 45-minute session with him in that press room? Well... he definitely has presence. By his sheer height alone, when he walked into the room, you could 'feel' him, y'know? Sometimes very tall people hunch a little, but not Joo Won. He walks with his shoulders square, and you sense confidence on the stage. He's comfortable with cameras snapping away. But you also get this sense that he's by nature quiet. He's not an energiser bunny. So that's the visual impression you get of him. The nice, strong and silent type. I reckon if he were a neighbour he wouldn't be someone you would strike a conversation with easily in the lift, but he is likely the sort to hold the door for you and say a 'Good morning' or 'Good evening'. That sort of vibe.

I don't understand Korean, but when he speaks, he comes across as contemplative and sincere in his tone. His speaking voice is very nice to listen to - it's got a very nice quality to it. Not overly rough and manly, but not childish either. A young, thoughtful man's voice with a nice timbre. And like a number of young, artists that I know, his manner of speech seems to reflect a certain contemplative nature. He doesn't rush to answer a question. Strikes me as having a warm personality. I think he's the sort you will feel comfortable with very quickly and become fast friends with if you were on a camp with him or something. Y'know? The sort of person who will become your "camp buddy" in no time. 

SIM might not have "trained" him to be media savvy, but Joo Won does come across as professional and media competent. I suppose stage experience can do that for you. All eyes were certainly on him - as I said in an earlier post, everyone else in the room just faded away when he started talking... it would be easy to not hand any questions over to Park Hye Soo if they weren't planned. 

My overall sense - he's got the characteristics of a younger child that has benefited from the warmth and care of loving parents and an older sibling. He is secure in who he is and it shows. He is thoughtful of his surroundings and not inward focussed. And despite the apparent fatigue that day, he knew he was there for work, and he did it as cheerfully as he could though his eyes were (in my opinion) drifting in and out of focus because (as we learned later) he was running on 1 hour of sleep. Who knows if he might have been having a headache at that point or not? I know if I were surviving on one hour of sleep, I'd be having a headache! 

Conclusion: Joo Won's like this little brother I don't have but would like to have. He'd be my children's favourite uncle for sure.

Ahhh... So Joowon is moving towards a different path than his other peers~ We've known this since Good Doctor, or even before that, didnt we? We've discussed Joowon's popularity. So now I'm glad to know that the non-popularity path is his decision, and not because he wasnt offered or anything. 

Joowon was also asked about who he thinks will win Daesang awards. Joowon hesitated. He was like "erm...." like he's really thinking if he can/should say what he wanted to say, then the host covered up by saying something else so that Joowon didnt have to answer which could turn out bad.

Anyway, I'm very proud of Joowon! Now I know for sure which path he intends to follow, and I'm loving that path. He was right in saying that acting lasts for a long time until he dies, and to see who is still there at that time. I can understand why fans of other actors are angry with this statement, but it's the harsh truth to certain actors out there. I hope Joowon will last for as long as he can, to continue to do what he loves and keep challenging himself. I hope he stays true to who he is and his targets. Even if he follows that path later on, I trust that he knows what he's doing, and that he will not lose his life's goal.

I cant say that I will fan-girl over him for years to come, but I will do so for a long as I can. I'm loving this man for his heart and his talent~

@farbarri I would wait for the translation first. 

I don't think he chooses non-popularity. It is just simply not his goal. Yet, he knows very well that one needs to popular enough to get choice roles. Don't you think he is underrated in that sense? 

Even for Yong Pal, I don't think SBS foresaw that they had a success in the making. Compared to other dramas, Yong Pal was flying under the radar, I felt that it wasn't being promoted much.

As for him talking about his long term goal and wanting to be acting to the very end, I think it's all in line with his aspirations ever since he chose this path. Joo Won never thinks that he is more talented, he only thinks of working harder. 

@gilaswan I don't know how much you know of Joo Won but your observations are mostly spot on. He is indeed a quiet person. In fact in his own words, he said as much and that he has 'low energy" , not energizer bunny. In fact these were some of the reasons why he felt he's unsuitable for Variety and left 1N2D. He had always been more or an introvert than extrovert. Only on screen and stage, does he become a different person. But all these do not mean that he's timid. In fact, I sensed his inner strength. 

@ctfrsgp dear, are you here? 

I am bad at these things and need your help. Can you give me a heads up when any magazine of Joo Won appears. Preferably a English one. 

I am thinking of sponsoring some as give aways. I know that fans seldom have chance to buy a Korean magazine. Maybe they might appreciate a SG mag

I mentioned to you briefly before part of my field of work. It actually makes me very sensitive to body language (you can't help but build those capacities because of the nature of the mode of communication used), and I'm mostly very accurate when it comes to reading non-verbal linguistic signals. ;) So while watching Joo Won, I saw more than "him". I also saw slight movements in facial muscles and overall body language. He's *really* the strong and silent type. Heheheh...

With regard to some of the earlier posts about him being "greedy when it comes to work" - I'm not sure if you were referring to that quote from a netizen who attended his Healing Camp recording, but I've noticed that this direct translation "greedy" from the original Korean is actually seen positively in their culture. It points to an industrious character who is steadfast and eager to work. A positive trait.

Maybe possible another word for that would be "ambitious" rather than greedy. He knows what path he wants and he knows what it'll take to get there even though it is a long tough road ahead. Utter respect for him!! ♥♥

I've just finished watching Healing Camp...and you really can't do anything but love this man for the person he is. In this day and age, people like him are extremely rare and we should thank his parents for raising one fineeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee son!! ^^ He's sincere in all that he does and though it is a tough industry and he can't help but doubt himself at times, i think he's one of the most brightly lit stars among the industry! If it is possible, because I can't have the ORIGINAL JooWon for myself (you have won more a lottery can ever offer future-JooWon-wifey!) can I have a Joowon clone please?!? hehehe

Thanks everyone for sharing your JooWon moments from the weekend. Reading your accounts made me so excited!! I hope one day I'll be able to share my personal account with you all (although I'm not such a great narrator like most of you). Til then, I can only hope, wish & BELIEVE and enjoy recounts! Hehe

@mrdimples I rarely buy the English magazines. You can look out for the 8-Days, and the Chinese ones like U-Weekly and i-Weekly magazines this weekend. The new issues will come out on every Sundays.

Thank you :D I will do so this weekend.

Aiyoh, aiyoh... watching Good Doctor makes me want to cry. He acts so convincingly... aigoo, aigoo... I want to give Si On a tight squeeze... 

 

Where are you at? We can talk about the drama. 

At the point where he's beginning to come into himself as an adult. He's met his birth father who's one abusive SOB. And the female fellow, Cha Yoon Seo (Moon Chae Won) is starting to rethink how she views him. I have to say though, I'm really only just watching Joo Won than the entire show... The TV is on to help me stay awake (work. :( ) but the bits I'm paying attention to is when Si On is being such a sincere sweetie... That said, there are aspects of the portrayal of persons with autism that bothers me...

Agree about Yong Pal. That was super under promoted. No posters and information till a few weeks later. No buzz at all and everyone was skeptical about it.

Previously, someone was asking for the KBS program where they showcase Joo Won's past dramas on KBS? 

sdee said that KBS and SBS have been 'making love calls' to Joo Won. By that, she means that they want him to appear on their station's programs. 

Here's the tudou link

I heard that they even aired Fashion King in place of some other program which was cancelled or pushed back. That was at the start of YP.

Thank you for all the fan accounts! Glad that you all had a wonderful time. I am reading your fan accounts and smiling like a fool at my phone because I can imagine myself doing the same... Anything for Joowon-ie oppa~

@mrdimples in your post sharing sdee's email, she mentioned KBS airing a special about Joowon. Do you know which show it is? Entertainment Weekly? Even better, do you happen to have the link? *puppy dog eyes and goofy grin* Also, thank you for promising subs for healing camp. I will wait faithfully for it.

About the subs... If anyone finds Healing Camp with chinese subs can you please post it here or PM me? My chinese skills are half baked but I will convince my mom to read the subs to me. (I swear she thinks I'm too crazy for Joowon)

I've already seen healing camp raw and abused my rewind button.

And on the cultural influences on speech, nuances, etc...
