Joo Won 주원- Welcome Back !

Recommended Posts

There is a Chinese saying:

长江后浪推前浪,浮事新人换旧人。

It means -

◇ As in the Yangtze River the waves behind drive on those ahead, so each new generation excels the last one.

◇ Time makes it inevitable that in every profession the rising generation is worthier than the former one.

Popularity comes and goes... you may be popular now but in a blink of the eye, you may become the forgotten... the rate new idols are created in the present day entertainment industry and it is not just limited to the Hallyu and K-pop waves, it is hard to keep up in order to maintain the popularity. Some of those popular hallyu stars mentioned mentioned above started out as aspiring actors. For example, I was quite impressed by JGS's performance as the talented young conductor in Beethovan Virus but after YAB I have stopped watchg his dramas. Likewise for KSH, the drama that caught my attention was Giant. Although his role was only a supporting one and he only appeared in a few eps out of the 60-ep drama, he left a long impression on me. However, the role in DH that made he rose to stardom did not interest or impress me unlike most ppl.

I would rather Joo Won gain recognition and long lasting reputation as the actor who chooses his projects careful and who keeps improving his crafts, not just in his home country or in the ever alluring Jap market but also among the overseas audience.

This is what I feel... you can ignore my post if you dun agree.

Maybe a dorky-funny-innocent character will do, and the setting will be in the downtown, and an a neighborhood far from Seoul. Not involved a loveline between a rich and the poor. Simple but heavy one. aaaahhh... too much demanding. anyway, I'll go wherever Cutie go!!! :D :D :D
*eeeeh... I think I described Park Shi On too much.. I love him though :)

Oooohhhh just another thought, in L7CS the initial description of Han Gil Ro was supposedly a dorky chaebol but then got changed. Maybe Cutie really would love to play a dork/nerd and that's why the recent choice?

simplydramafied1082 said: From the provided links, and reading the article on DB, Javabeans had mentioned that the name change of the drama from Fashion King to Gangnam Style was not consulted with the webtoon artist which pissed him off. This was in the end of 2012.Additionally based on the story line (coming of age drama, teenage angst, lots of daydreaming and who knows maybe a bit of voyeurism), a broadcaster was not procured. Looking at the story and the strips on Naver it seems most probable a private broadcaster would do the story justice like TVN or JTBC.I guess Joo Won likes the bit of tension associated with each drama he takes, so he can clearly banish the image of the last role(s) he played. Nobody will be given a chance to say " The XX role he took is similar to Lee Kangto" or "the YY role he took is similar to Tae Hee". I think there would be a risk to playing this role but not everyone can play a role which has many layers like Joo Won does :) Hoping to get the latest developments on this new story :) Cheers my folks :)

@mindmoe... I think this is not rich and poor story, I think this is typical classroom boy having a crush(love?) on a girl.... oh if only we have English sub of this manhwa. Was it called Chaebol? Hur... I'm not well-versed with K-drama phrase.  Chaebol Cutie?  :D  Oh well, yeah, let's just follow where Cutie will go, he might drop some balls and left/right/middle goodies along the way. ;))  Besides, if he will do the one in the manga... the undressing scenes and shower scenes and sleeping scenes... waaahhh... sooner or later we will definitely see some moaty goodies... Hell, Yeah!!!!!!!!

I was laughing at the part when he Becm handsome and after he played foot ball he reSt and all sweaty and all the looking at him sweat all over his neck and arms

The girls suddenly go and suck his neck and arms

I was like so shock when I saw this part and lol till stomach ache

But at the end it s the girls imagine sucking his neck

And if this part rly in drama

Waaaa I ll watch it many times as it s so moaty and hilarious

Oh dear.I love you.I totally agree with you.Fangirls changes their hearts quickly unless they really really admire that actors.(my generation,like this!)Popularity never last long.The secured route for an actor is to have many projects that show his/her talents so that he/she still gets offers even after the popularity drops! I believe...JW has enough but the more the merrier.^^

i wont comment further about Gangnam Style until official news about synopsis or casting rumors are released. if the synopsis @coolreborn posted or @stearly read is what the storyline is about, then i'm aboard the ship. :D nerdy/geeky high-school up to early 20s rom-com concept sound quite interesting. i hope the writer and director could steer away from typical rom-com stereotype.
by the way, does any of you here HAVENT watched Ghost movie? i thought everyone watched it, but when i asked my friends, they dont know anything about the movie. i was really surprised.

Would u think u want Joo Won to be chosen for a role in a drama or movie bcoz hez popular or bcoz they know hez THE ONE for the role ? Or u do prefer for the audience to watch his drama/movie bcoz hez the IT guy now or bcoz they know Joo Won WILL deliver. For me, when I choose a drama or movie to watch I dun even consider whether it is by the most popular actors/actresses. I will pick those that I feel I will get the "best deal" since Im going to invest my time in watching it.

Here are a few examples -

◇ Our dear Dr Kim - Joo Sang Wook, he may not be a popular actor so to speak, but I have seen his performance in Giant (hez the 2nd lead) and thus I was assured that GD will be a success as I thought he is the best match for JW in terms of screen chemistry. I expected some "fireworks" between the 2 of them and true enuf we got lots in those bromance scenes :D

◇ Oh Man Seok (the vineyard man) who is now in the new KBS weekend drama King's Family, and the middle-aged actors from The Gentlemen's Dignity... they are all not what u would consider to be the current popular actors as compared to their young counterparts like LMH, LJS and even our own beloved Joo Won. But these 'ahjussi' actors are well respected and known for their good acting skills and they are still getting good 'meaty' roles in dramas even though they may not necessarily be the leading men.

Popular dramas like Dream High... they dun really leave a lasting impression... another few more years, no one will rem these dramas.

Im not as well versed as mrdimples and some of our friends here when it comes to putting my thoughts into words... but I hope u will at least understand where Im coming from abt the topic.

Again, thankz for reading my rantings. u can ignore my post if you dun agree.
