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. 

Korean Actor Joo Won: “I Was Literally Driving Into A Wall.”

The life of an actor is not all peaches and cream. They may be racking in big money, but there’s a price to pay for it. For some actors, it means putting their lives in danger by filming dangerous scenes. Joo Won is one such actor.

When The Gang Doctor star was in Singapore last week, he revealed to the media that he had to film a lot of difficult scenes for the drama. He said, “In the beginning, there were a lot of action scenes. Some of the things I had to do included chasing a car, jumping off the bridge, and filming in the water.”

But he reckoned one of the most dangerous scenes was one where he had to drive recklessly – with a blocked view. “There was a scene where I had to drive on the streets very furiously. There were cameras [mounted] on the windshield and … they were blocking my view. I was literally driving into a wall.”

Before you wonder if he acted as a gangster in the drama, the answer is no. Joo Won played the character of Kim Taehyun, a mercenary doctor who would go to extreme lengths to raise money for his younger sister’s surgery, including treating patients (triad members and criminals) illegally.

Hold up. Joo Won as a doctor? If you’re wondering whether you’ve watched the drama two years ago, we don’t blame you. After all, it is his second time playing the role of a medical practitioner. In 2013, he took on the lead role in Good Doctor, where he played an autistic savant with superior medical knowledge and skills.

He might be acting in one medical drama after another, but he’s not worried that viewers will have problems distinguishing the two dramas. He said, “Good Doctor was a very different drama from The Gang Doctor because it was very pure, innocent and community-focused rather than focusing on entertainment value.”

He added, “The characters are also very different, so I wasn’t worried about distinguishing them. In Good Doctor, I played an autistic kid who had difficulty in terms of intelligence level because he’s mentally stuck at 10, but very knowledgeable in medicine, so he was a very special character. On the other hand, Taehyun is very rough, strong and thick-skinned, but is also a firm advocate of justice.”

Good Doctor received rave reviews when it was aired two years ago, but that wasn’t enough an encouragement for Joo Won to act in another medical drama. In fact, he was initially against the idea, but changed his mind after reading about Taehyun’s character. “The two characters were so different that it changed my mind about never doing a medical drama after Good Doctor. I had so much difficulty memorising the medical terms, so I thought I would never do another medical drama, but there I was, back to being a doctor again.”

Joo Won lost seven kilograms while filming The Gang Doctor – and it wasn’t because he set out to lose the pounds. Rather, it was due to his hectic schedule. However, he said that he has since gained back the weight. “When I’m filming, it’s difficult to eat and sleep. Even though I’m now eating the same amount of food as I ate during filming, I’m less active so that’s probably why I gained a little weight. I’m trying to control my diet right now. After filming wrapped up, the sense of accomplishment that it’s over and I can finally rest makes me a lot calmer. It makes me feel empty at times, but I feel that I’m becoming my healthy self again.”

By the end of the press conference, we were pretty much convinced that Joo Won is the epitome of the perfect man – good-looking, polite and eloquent. After all, he fielded all questions smoothly – except for one. When asked what advice he would give to his younger self, he pondered for a long time before replying, “I should have enjoyed the [2002] World Cup a lot more.”

Joowon speaks English~ He actually has good pronunciation when he speaks English. Like a natural~ But he just rarely speak it.

Can't really tell if he speaks English fluently - are there other clips of him interacting in or speaking a greater length of text in English? But just from this little bit, he does seem to have a "neutral" English accent, i.e. not heavily Korean accented. Nice. :)

@mrdimples: What about his hands? Are you asking me if I saw him do this? That was before I took out my phone and decided to record his answer to "advice for your 15 year old self". I was just staring at him and looking at how he was simply adorable in the way he laughed when he heard that question. He was all "Oh goodness, that's like what? 14 years ago? Wow... I need to think..." I think his point in his advice was to tell his 15 year old self that it's alright to live a little. :) He's so sweetie... Ah. I want a dongsaeng like that too. I can totally understand why his seniors like him so much.

You can hear he speaks English in the final episode of Tomorrow Cantabile. About 4 to 5 lines? And I think he sounds pretty good :)

From what I have seen,he cannot speak fluently but he understands.I believe.On one ep of 1n2d which was 2 or 3 years ago, he was paired up with US born Korean.They were funny pair as JW spoke in mixture of English and Korean while that guy spoke in English.He usually used one key word to explain that guy. Eg: for introduction,he said introduce.

 I think JW know a lot of vocabularies as a non-english speaker but he might have problem creating sentences,hence unable to present his thought.

LOL! Yeah~ His vocabulary for English is just like mine for Korean. He definitely cant speak fluently, but I love how he speaks them, even when scripted. His accent isnt too strong, and he speaks it softly in a low tone. I love his conversation in English in Naeil Cantabile! He sounds very nice indeed. :D

Is Joo Won's insta account inactive?

Ah... forget the question. I just found the correct account. The handle provided in an earlier article by allkpop was not correct...

Hmm I think I've watched started all his dramas now.  I've seen all his movies too, with the exception of Paradise Heaven (is that even out yet? I'm confused).  I'm still waffling about whether or not I want to watch It's Him/That Guy when it comes available.  I'm a giant scaredy-cat so I can't sit still through thrillers or horror movies.

Yes,native speakers and those who learnt the language since young will not understand it.It is really hard to create the sentences! It's like you understand almost everything but unable to express one's own thought properly! Almost every language is like that. But Joo Won is good through. If he is to focus and study hard,he might able to speak English fluently after 6 months or so,provided he knows lot of words.My personal experience :)

@gilaswan  Please do join me in my Cantabile watch... I had to give up on Baker King :) 

I join you also. I am at ep 15!

Wow. You're so far. I'm only on episode 2.  :)  I'm also watching IRIS though (for my new TaeHee crush lol)

Cantabile is the last drama I want to watch for JW... but somehow I spent only 7days or so to reach ep 15. Then I hesitated to watch the last 2 episodes for awhile because  I don't want it to end... WHAAAAAAT... I can't believe I am saying this. I had zero expectation for this drama... XD

You started but dropped them? Like Baker King? 

Have you completed any? just curious

I am going to re-watch Yong Pal too. If you have time to start a new Joo Won drama, Tomorrow Cantabile is good for this season, wait.....I forgot you and I are in this eternal sunshine place. But you must watch Gaksital and Ojakgyo Brothers. I think you will like them. 

Baker King belong to the type of dramas I would watch with my mom. But can I confess that I marathoned the entire series in 1 week? All the time, I wanted to throttle Dad, poke Grandma with a stick and hug Ma Jun. Tak Gu also makes me mad. He's like those whack-a- mole which you keep hitting but always pop up grinning. I think I love all the baddies in the show especially this delicious one

@Ma OO you haven't watched Tomorrow Cantabile? It is such an underrated drama. The haters were crazy bashing this one. But I love it, it's a good drama in it's sweet and unique way.
