We have seen clouds part for the sun.

We have seen rainbows.

We have seen flowers in the morning, covered in dew,

and sunsets so brilliant with fire.

But there's none other that will move you the most

than the sight of his lovely eyes gazing right back at you.

Hello, All!

 

This time I am here to share my feelings after watching While You Were Sleeping for the second time. Like I said before, watched the drama for the first time the year it aired because I like Suzy from Uncontrollaby Fond and Lee Jong Suk in W. 

 

Was not a fan of him yet, but I already acknowledged his great acting skills. 

 

Watching it for the second time is more meaningful. Will it be even more meaningful the third time around?

 

Everytime Jung Jae Chan was in pain, I feel for him as well. It hurt when he got shot. My heart breaks when he held Mr. Choi for the last time. And I am in love with Nam Hong Joo as well.

 

When watching a drama, the most important for me is the story has to excellent. The second, the actors must have good acting skills for me to finish it. 

 

Honestly, if Lee Jong Suk has his current acting skills minus his Grecian God looks, I'd still love him. The fact that he's an incredible actor WITH his dream-like appearance makes me have no choice but to be his fan.

 

He's really, really incredible in his art. It's also obvious with every piece of his work that he loves his job. He's not acting because he wants the money or the fame. He loves acting itself. 

 

As advised, I watched the SBS Drama Awards acceptance speech and found out that he improved a lot from his previous speech at MBC Drama Awards the year before. He did great, and rather than responding to criticism about him, he seemed to simply wanted to be better as himself and for his fans.

 

I also have followed the career or many Korean male idols and actors, but it's rare that there are the highly talented ones with such humility as him. 

 

He said he's thankful for his fans, for making someone so ordinary like him special. It might not be his exact words, yet that's the gist. He's so humble to the point that it's worrying.

 

May he always be surrounded with good people. A heart that is so good breaks easily. I don't mean to be depressing, just......you know. Nice people are not always treated nicely. 

 

I will pray that Lee Jong Suk-ssi will always be safe and have people around him with equal good hearts. He seems to know well who he should be close with, so I guess he will be safe. In the future too, may he always be that humble. Because these are the characters of people who reach the stars, so to speak. As in, reaching the best he could ever be. 

 

In the future, can he act in a historical drama? It will be nice to watch. His roles are always different. However, a historical drama would be entirely different. 

 

Next, I'm going to embark on his movies. 

 

Watched his cut in School Ghost, a movie from 2010. His role was small and the movie was obviously a low-budget one. Ah, he really started from the bottom, didn't he? I feel touched when I think that he's now one of the top Korean actors. 

 

Thank you so much for letting me share my thoughts about him, and see you on my next post.

I worry about that sometimes. He's so sensitive and kind. Usually hearts like his end up broken or changed. I think that's why we all feel so protective of him.

He has said quite a few times that he felt his role in The Face Reader brought down the movie and because of that, he's sworn off of anything historical. However, I remember Lee Seo Jin talking to him about it on 3 Meals a Day and he seemed open to the idea of a historical drama under the right circumstances. Selfishly, I kind of hope he doesn't because it's not my favorite genre, but I'm sure if anyone is going to make me a fan, it's him. 

 

I was just thinking today about how different all of his roles have been. I think that's one of the things I find so impressive about him. There is a distinct difference in all of his characters. I don't believe he's ever played the same role twice. Musician, airman, student, swimmer, doctor, reporter, manhwa character, serial killer, playwright... he's always something distinguishable and none of his characters blur. I'm sure a few of his critics would disagree but they're wrong. ^_^

 

I know a lot of people didn't love Doctor Stranger (especially the frizzy hair) but I remember being blown away by how different he was as Park Hoon. He change his body type, his speech, and mannerisms so much that he felt like a different person to me. While that drama wasn't the best in terms of writing and casting, I have such a soft spot for it because of how hard he worked to become this character. I know he feels like he failed, but he didn't. Not at all.

We should give up. If the poets can’t unriddle the mystery of his beauty,

then certainly neither can we.

it seems the book jong suk reads in romance is a bonus book has won a poetry award recently. i remember a photo of jong suk at this company, at the time i thought it was part of the drama but i guess not!

 

Quote

In centering a drama on books or, more precisely, the publishing industry, it made sense for the production team to look for a related partner to team up with. And so, Romance Is A Bonus Book  found one in RHK Korea [알에이치코리아], formerly known as Random House Korea till 2012, when they adopted their new acronym. Thus, most of the books featured in Romance Is A Bonus Book were actually published by RHK. So, it is easy to juxtapose both them and Gyeoroo Publishing as the real- and reel-life versions of South Korea’s largest publishing house.

He was an exotic flower amongst the snowdrifts, standing out,

a Technicolor misfit in a monochrome Christmas movie.

The Books in ‘Romance Is A Bonus Book’ — Part 2

 

na-tae-jo-x-lee-jong-suk-book-there-is-no-one-2017-koreandramaland-800x389.jpg

 

by Marion KDL

For this second part of the compilation of the books in Romance Is A Bonus Book (RIABB), we turn our focus to South Korea poet Na Tae-joo. This is not just because two of his books became very central in the middle of this drama. Rather, it’s that in retracing those two books, it actually leads us to more connections between real and reel.

 

 

Na Tae-joo X Lee Jong-suk

Here’s something interesting that connects the lead actor of RIABB even more deeply with Na himself. Lee Jong-suk first came across Na’s poems when he recited two lines out of ‘Wildflower’ (sometimes also translated as ‘Grass Flower’), one of the poet’s most well-known poems that also features in South Korean textbooks, as a farewell to his classmate that is forced to transfer schools in episode 2 of the drama School 2013.

In 2016, Na and Lee collaborated together on the poem book Everything Is Your Fault (모두가 네 탓), published together by YG Entertainment [YG엔터테인먼트] in 2017. It contains 16 of Na’s poems — including “Wildflower” — and Lee’s comments on the poems. “I don’t want the poem to be just an actor’s pictorials,” Lee stated in an interview when the book came out in 2017 and continues by saying: “I want people who are in love, who are hurt by break-ups, or who are lonely, to be comforted by the poem.” This is similar to his own relationship with Na’s poems. Lee said in the same interview that when he read Na’s poem in the drama,  he did so without much thought. But as time passed, Na’s poems began to be a source of comfort for Lee himself.

Understandably, this book has since sold out.

 

Na Tae-joo in Romance Is A Bonus Book

In Romance Is A Bonus Book, two of Na’s poem books were key ones that Lee Jong-suk’s character, Cha Eun-ho, shared with the two most important people in his life.

The Heart Is Drawn To You
[음이 살짝 기운다 나태주 신작 시집]

(2019)
Author: Na Tae-joo (나태주)
Publisher: 알에이치코리아 (RHK)

romance-is-a-bonus-book-2019-book-na-tae-joo-the-heart-Is-drawn-to-you-episode-10-koreandramaland.jpg

 

But suddenly,
the wind blows again from somewhere.
The sound of the sandstorm
reaches the branches up high.
And with that, my heart flutters.
That means
I miss someone I left behind.
The desire to love someone again
is making my heart throb.
Dream.
And yearn.
Love deeply and lastingly.
We sleep, rest,
and dwell in our momentary joy

to recharge ourselves.
So that we can return
to the world full of pain,
so that we can have new dreams.
Yearn for new things,
and love once again.
deeply and lastingly.

This is the poem that Eun-ho reads to his adopted father, writer Kang Byung-joon (Lee Ho-jae) at his Gapyeong residence in episode 10. The poem stems from Na’s 2019 poem collection The Heart Is Drawn To You (음이 살짝 기운다 나태주 신작 시집).
