Recommended Posts

I have never met him, nor do I live inside his head, but when I compare him to what he was like during say, School 2013 (and his attitude about himself) compared to now, I would say he is many times happier now. I think he actually is playful, but also quite internally driven. I think he's a perfectionist with himself but also generous to others. He's someone who confronts his weaknesses, not to wallow, but to set out to improve on them. (Look at his progress with public speaking over time, for example.) I know what you mean about that WYWS scene, though. Did you ever see the bts of the scene in W where he shows up to confront the cartoonist? It was the same, he was crying and had snot coming out his nose and had to calm down for a moment after they called cut. I agree with what you said here:

All that said, I do think JS is pretty well-rounded. I just think he does everything with passion. He loves hard, cries hard, and puts his all into everything he does. 

 

It's one of his charms, he just wears his heart on his sleeve and goes all out for everything he does.

 

In interviews, I think that he has multiple things going on inside his head. Again, this is just my observation and interpretation. But I think perhaps he's hard on himself because he doesn't want to get arrogant. He wants to keep growing, not stagnate. He's really driven to improve and do better, and so he's less interested in sitting around on his laurels and more concerned about how to level up. He is hard on himself, but at the same time, he isn't just whimpering in the corner. He has a proven track record of setting goals and meeting them, one way or another, and things that happen as a surprise to the public have usually been long in the making. He's both hard on himself, but also confident and determined.

 

As for loneliness, I have many times observed him to be quite happy compared to a number of years ago. I do think it can be a bit lonely when you are in his particular line of work--there is a very large price to pay for fame, and it limits your freedom sometimes, and people judge you unfairly, and there probably are not that many people that he can relax around without feeling like he has to be on display. It's part of the job, but it can make you lonely. Also, going into the army and cutting off IG cold turkey is probably a bit of a shock, lol. He has to adjust to a completely different lifestyle, and there's some culture shock with that, I expect. And thirdly, I notice that in some recent interviews he's tried to explain the difference between love for fans and a relationship with one person, and how the fan love can never fill that second slot. Again, I'm not in his head, but my interpretation of that is that he values his relationship with fans but he also someday hopes fans will support him in his personal life in a relationship with just one person. Obviously he is not going to do this TOMORROW, cause hello, military, etc. But someday, he would like to get married, he has said that many times. If he's smart, he will keep his private life and any such relationships private for as long as possible. But at that day, whenever it is, whoever it's with, I'm sure he'd like to know that fans support him. 

 

Again, I don't know him personally, and I'm not inside his head. It's just my observation from being a fan for some time now, watching him grow and change and continually become a better version of himself. Others may have a completely different interpretation, and that's fine, we can still be friends. :) I think he does love and miss the fans, and I think the army is an adjustment (for anyone it's an adjustment!). But I think that he is going to come back stronger than ever, and I think there are many happy things in store, both for Jong Suk ssi as well as for us fans watching and cheering from home. :) 

 

In all endeavors, Jong Suk fighting!

Yes, I saw that too! I've found it really eye-opening that his strength doesn't only lie in acting but also in becoming his character. I think some people are really good at faking real emotion and others are really good at duplicating real emotion. All actors have to do their fair share of both, but I think JS is so successful and good at what he does because he becomes the character he's playing.

He said once that he's hard on himself because he's confident that he can do better. I do think he's a perfectionist and his best will never be good enough, but that's the mindset of someone who will always improve. And that proven track record is no joke. When you can watch an interview of him in 2013 stating that he wants to play a psychopath (VIP), star in a romantic drama with Lee Na Young (Bonus Book), and loves coffee so much that he'd want to own a cafe (89 Mansion) all in a minute of each other... it's easy to see that he is going to get what he wants. It's just a matter of time. 

 

I will say that a personal setback for me in terms of his interviews is the language barrier. I'm a grammar nerd who oftens observes each and every word of a sentence to get as much out of it as possible. Whether I can't get my hands on the entire interview, it's not translated perfectly, or it's not translated at all, I do yearn for the day I'm good enough at Korean to fully digest every word he says for all that it's worth. In the meantime, I'm eternally grateful to those who put so much effort into translating for us.

I do worry about that for a multitude of reasons. I won't list them all, but whether it be his career or his relationship that would suffer, I hope his love for us and his desire to be as honest as possible doesn't complicate things. He said something recently that I could've gotten wrong, but it sounded like he came to the realization that marrying the right person at the right time is more important than the rush to be married. Also that he needs to be in a good place himself. I hope all of those things fall into place at exactly the right time because I really do want him to have it all.

In case, you are already reading this, don't faint yet. Lets wait for an official statement (if there is going to be one). We can only be happy for him if it's true! :)

BREAKING

 Lee Jong Suk revealed to be dating former Hello Venus member Nara

AKP STAFF
 
 
breakingjpg.jpg

 

Lee Jong Suk and former Hello Venus member Nara are dating.

 

According to an exclusive report by NewsIs, the two met while Nara was still a Hello Venus member, and Lee Jong Suk apparently directly contacted her and helped her sign to his own label, A Man Project

 

An insider relayed that "The head of A Man Project is Lee Jong Suk. He takes care of all of Kwon Nara's schedules. After her contract with Fantagio ended, he spent a lot of time on her career."

 

The two apparently were seen on dates, and Nara was often seen at Lee Jong Suk's cafe 89 Mansion. Nara is apparently Lee Jong Suk's type, with her tall height and good looks that led her to be called a 'Bundang's Lee Na Young." Lee Jong Suk is known to be a huge fan of Lee Na Young, who he worked together with in the past. Although he has been serving in the military since this past March, the two have been meeting frequently as Nara goes to visit him.

 

Another insider stated that Lee Jong Suk was the one to become interested in Nara first and that she became known as "Lee Jong Suk's girl" and often received presents from him.

Jul 31, 2019
by C. Hong

Updated August 1 8 a.m. KST: 

A few hours after Newsis’s exclusive report, a source from A-MAN project denied the dating rumors between Lee Jong Suk and Kwon Nara.

The source said, “The report released today about them dating is false. They only have a close senior-junior relationship.”

I am quite sure he can figure this out. He has spent a looooooong time thinking of this topic, lol. He just needs to get this military thing behind him, and then he can get on with the rest of his life, both personal and professional.

 

Also, although the rumor was false, it was interesting to see people's responses. I think that it would not damage his career too much if he dated someone. People who are his fans just want to see him happy. And people like Ji Sung manage to be married and still create lovely drama after lovely drama. I think he has enough good examples that he would be able to balance it.

I respect the denial, but I do worry what it means for the relationship if there was some truth to it. I know there are dating rumors that are true but denied because they aren't serious enough to confirm. I'd hate to think a rumor could ruin something he was hoping to keep on the downlow. Once again, not saying that's the case, but it's just common sense that if you're casually dating someone and unsure of your future with them, you'd deny if reports like this were to surface. 

 

I also hope this denial isn't going to encourage the originators or other paparazzi types to find where he is and eavesdrop. I don't want anything interfering with his military service or the opinion officials have of him. I really wouldn't want him to be accused of starting the rumor himself for publicity while he's away.

 

Call me a pessimist, but I just want the best for him.

If we are to search for a quote that will put into words how much we love this man...we will never find it.

We can learn every language and read every word ever written but we will never find it.

How can we? Heaven is yet to come up with it.

JS is known to be a straightforward sort of person. He's actively involved in the pursuit of happiness. He's someone who thinks on the things that are important to him, and acts on them. If we, as fans who don't even know him, want a good life for him, think how much more he would work for a good life for himself. He's a strong person. He knows what he's doing.

 

I trust him.

I hope I’m not being looked down on for worrying or considering every angle. My concern isn’t a lack of trust in him. We all have our own best interest in mind but the world can be cruel and work against us. Sometimes we have to choose between undesirable things that others have thrust upon us and the outcome can’t be what we want or would have chosen for ourselves. 

 

He’s only human and is capable of making mistakes or being a victim of other people’s bad choices. I trust him, but I will always worry. I guess it’s just better to keep those worries inside sometimes.

Despite dating denials, insiders claim Nara is planning to move to a new suite 5 mins away from Lee Jong Suk's house

 

ajpg.jpg

 

 

Shortly after dating rumors between actor Lee Jong Suk and actress/former Hello Venus member Naraspread on the web, their label A-Man Project firmly denied the relationship as false. However, new media outlet reports claim that Nara is currently planning to move to a new apartment complex, 5 minutes away from Lee Jong Suk's house. 

 

Insiders stated that Nara recently signed a lease with an apartment complex in Seoul's Oksu-dong - a complex located approximately 5 minutes away from the luxurious Hannam-dong L-villa complex, where Lee Jong Suk lives. 

 

 

Furthermore, Nara very recently decided to move out on her home after living with her younger sisters for a long time, according to insiders. Previously, dating rumors claimed that Lee Jong Suk and Nara gradually progressed from close sunbae-hoobaes to lovers earlier this year.  

 

Depite A-Man Project's earlier denial, sources continue to claim that Lee Jong Suk was very personally and actively involved in recruiting Nara to A-Man Project. Nara was allegedly spotted numerous times at a cafe owned by Lee Jong Suk in Shinsa-dong, called '89 Mansion'. 


Meanwhile, Lee Jong Suk debuted as a fashion model in 2005 before switching gears into acting in 2010. Nara, on the other hand, debuted as a member of Hello Venus in 2012.

@ibru chingu, if not for the rumour and the above reporting by allkpop.com,  I would not have known Ms Nara moving in that close, having coffee in 89M (now wonder whether she will be seen often there?) and thanks to @Rania Zeid for sharing, I now know where Mr Lee stays ...hahaha!  I am so sorry for the intrusion of privacy, Mr Lee :wub:

All rumor are so funny in today. Kang Ta date not only Jung Jo Mi but also racing model in same day. For JS, "they meet in his cafe many time, she move to live in apartment near his, she's out of JS 's car, he personally wish & recruit her...." that's his work. He had CEO of a recruitment & development art company. He still interested on it because it's his dream company. A normal story: a young CEO with an beautiful employee, every their behavior will be viewed to link a secret romance relationship. People will love to read :D :lol: :phew:

hey guys let's calm down :blush:... we all are/were shippers at some point.. that is not something to be shame of..

 

i shipped him with 2 or 3 actresses b4... it's ok and it's normal..but did that shake my love or support for him when they (including suki) were rumored or confirmed dating other people?  sure notttt

 

 

so plz let us respect each other's preferences ... everyone of us is free to ship him with whoever they want...  and as long as he never personally confirmed dating anyone then we will stick with what he says whether we r doubting or not ...

 

also all shippers in here are totally respecting the fact that this is thread is for jongsuk only and never posted unrelated stuff.

 

we are all like family in here ..so plz  let us act accordingly
