Lee Jong Suk 이종석 ||Unreleased C-Drama - Jade Lover ||Upcoming Movie - The Witch: Part 2 || Upcoming Movie - Decibel


Recommended Posts

Seriously, entertainment is everyone's bestie this year. Much needed and appreciated! I'm really amazed at the extent to which they were able to keep filming in Korea with covid going on, but of course there are still some disruptions on the creation side. Drama schedules may be going on as usual, but I read another article yesterday that mentioned the 100+ films still in backlog because they couldn't open theaters. Eek. I've got people asking me constantly when this or that is going to come out, and I've had a lot of people tell me, "but I heard this!" And I'm like...um...I hate to break it to you, but there is literally no official word on when this movie will come out, much as I wish there was. And meanwhile, I feel like a lot of actors who would normally do films are now going to be eyeing the drama side of things until the backlog loosens up. I have no idea how long we'll end up waiting to see either of Jongsuk's films, so I hope he takes the drama and that it comes out soon. (Also, drama sets seem a bit less sealed-off and silent, so I feel like people are a bit freer in posting when doing dramas than when doing films. Maybe it's just the people I follow, but that's the impression I've always sort of gotten.)

Lee Jong Suk, His award speech and his phobia of public speaking. I feel compelled to write something because I am a fan and he gets unnecessary hate for his unfortunate phobia of public speaking

Yeah, I also get the impression that movie sets are full of secrecy and largely closed off to the public while drama sets aren't. Almost everyone working on Decibel have been very quiet about it on social media. I don't see many behind the scenes pictures being posted. A 2-hour movie is way easier to spoil than a 16-20 hour drama, so the secrecy makes sense.

 

I wonder how much money is lost if a movie isn't released to theaters. Is it possible for a lot of these films to just surrender to a Netflix release? I mean... won't there always be a 100+ movie pile-up so long as they never stop making movies? They need to figure out a way to reduce the backlog without losing a devastating amount of money. I know that Park Shinhye and Krystal both starred in movies meant for theater release that were picked up by Netflix instead... I'm just not sure what kind of loss they're looking at.

I know, that's got to be a major headache for producers right now. I did read a while back that they were thinking of experimenting by releasing simultaneously in theaters and OTT (ie streaming services) but I don't know what the result of that was. I would guess they would chill on new productions for a while, though, until things even out.

we may not get many pictures from the set itself, but how about one from jongsuk? :sweatingbullets: cha eunwoo already revealed his haircut, we got a picture of kim raewon on set with his uniform, but still nothing from jongsuk.

 

a couple of days ago there was someone on twitter that said they saw jongsuk and cha eunwoo on set, but didn't have any pictures. this makes me think they've rather been asked not to share anything, or maybe jongsuk isn't on set all the time (due to his injury?) (well, it wouldn't be weird, since fans sent him support and his schedule had changed abruptly, but maybe he made time for something else and it's not because he was hurt) so when we got that picture of kim raewon, for example, he wasn't there and that's why fans didn't include him in the update.

 

about that...his finger and his hand in general looked fine when he posted this (in fact someone pointed out it looked like his finger had healed), but it didn't a few days later when he posted the fans' support (i'm basing this on the speculation of korean fans, of course, i can't know for sure). why didn't we talk about this more? is there someone here that doesn't believe he still has an injury?

 

going back to my original argument, i think he wants his haircut to be officially out there with a photoshoot and not with a simple selfie, since it'll come as a surprise to us, and i think the picture he shared some days ago might be just about that.

I haven't wanted to speculate much about whether he's hurt because we don't have a lot of information or evidence to support that he is. Whether it's the finger he had wrapped in one picture of the wrist brace in another, I figure it could just as easily be his character who is hurt. It's also possible these are CGI props, strange wardrobe, or just misunderstood by us in some other way. I wouldn't be surprised if the action scenes have been hard and therefore, he's experienced some kind of injuries to his hands... but I'm just never as sure as everyone else seems to be.

I really hope that's his reason. It makes sense that he'd want a drastic change in his appearance to be seen for the first time in his best light. People really, really loved his long hair and I'm sure he's read a few comments that demand he never cut it. There is probably an insecure part of him that is concerned people will see his short hair as a downgrade. Or maybe he does and this is all just his own insecurity. 

 

Since he had an older photoshoot with his long hair scheduled for the June issue of Harper's Bazaar, it's entirely possible that his idea to reveal his haircut through a photoshoot had to be pushed back longer than he wanted it to be. The fact that he's refused every opportunity to post a casual selfie makes absolutely no sense unless he's planning something like that, so at this point, it's hard to believe he isn't.

i disagree with that. partially. at least about his finger injury, because it doesn't make sense for him to be wearing a prop in a social gathering. he was with friends when we saw his finger was hurt, not on set.

 

i didn't say i was sure of it, i'm not sure of anything. i believe what i'm seeing others are saying, and i like to think about all possibilities. i know we don't like to think he got hurt and we look for other explanations, but like you said, it's entirely possible he got injured filming an action scene, which is what i think as well. it wouldn't be the first time. seeing many people agreeing on the fact that he was wearing a wrist protector when he shared the food truck support makes me lean towards that possibility, even though i don't accept it as truth until i see something more concrete.

@jongkkot, I always thought he was on set in the picture taken with his friends due to what was behind them and the lady who shared the pictures being some kind of manager. Removing props and wardrobe like that can be difficult in between takes or during your break. It might also ruin continuity to have to redo it. I wonder if he'd even be able to film a movie like this with real-life injuries that can't be hidden on screen.

 

I wasn't trying to call anyone out or suggest people who think he's been hurt are wrong. I said anything was possible, including that. When you asked why we hadn't been talking about it and if anyone thought he wasn't actually hurt, these thoughts came to mind. That's all. :)

what does ko taeyong and his other friend have to do with a filming set? even if it was a modeling set... i don't see that logic working out. i doubt jongsuk would wear a cap (or the kind of clothing he was wearing in the pic, in general) while filming that movie. if i think about the fact the post was captioned "healing dinner time", it's clear to me that it didn't happen on a set.

 

edit: ...is that ko taeyong, though? if not, my mistake. the rest of my argument still stands.

I'm sure he can invite friends to the set and that production supplies dinner on days when filming runs late enough. If his hair is cut, he may gravitate towards wearing hats in between takes. It would also be standard for him to change out of a uniform before meals to keep his costume clean, especially if it's white like what we saw on Kim Raewon. Or, like we've discussed in the past, he might not be wearing a uniform because his circumstances in this movie are different than we think. Obviously, there is a lot we don't know with very little information to build concrete opinions on. But I'm really not interested in arguing. You have an opinion and I really don't. That's ok!

@jongkkot  I saw CEW's haircut - pretty cool!   It would be nice to see JS show us a selfie, be it with cap or beanie on.

JS is so confidential when come to filming or photoshoots but he did say that he is happiest when he share or post something on his IG -  Guess I have to be patient.

cr ljsmyboo - romance is a bonus book - cha eun ho - He will tell us .. nope nope

mine is not an opinion, it's speculation. yours is also speculation, because we are just talking about what we think it could be.

 

again, i don't see it as an absolute truth, but, when i'm uncertain about something, i prefer to go with what most people believe the truth is, rather than disprove their view of things if i find it hard to accept. it's not hard for me to think that he might not be injured (even though i still think at one point he has been), but is it hard for you to think the opposite way?

CEW looks cool! i wonder if jongsuk's haircut looks similar. it's really nice.

 

not sure if i can quote images - we're all feeling like song haerin in that picture, aren't we? :D

you reminded me RIABB has a lot of great outfits, it was great to see jongsuk in such "familiar", every-day clothing too!

In your original post, you specifically asked why we hadn't discussed his possible injuries and if anyone here thought he wasn't hurt. In truth, I hadn't said anything until now because I knew most people thought he was injured (while I thought something in between yes/no) and I didn't see any harm in that. There was no reason to bring up other possibilities. But when you asked for that opinion earlier, I thought you were opening up a discussion because you were curious about alternate thoughts. That's why I listed a number of other reasons we could be seeing these bandages on him. 

 

You seem to be getting the impression that I believe Jongsuk isn't injured or that I'm finding it hard to accept. That isn't true at all. I think it's very possible and that's why it's the most popular belief, like you said. It's just my nature to consider every possibility and stay neutral without confirmation. I did the same thing about his military discharge date, his haircut, drama release date, photoshoot speculation, etc. I enjoy coming up with possibilities that haven't been mentioned yet. Jongsuk is always so full of surprises that I'm never quite sure what he's up to.

 

I understand why you might feel like I'm trying to disprove your theory, but it goes both ways. Casting doubt on each other was never my intention so that's why I wanted this conversation to end. We should both be allowed to say what we want and be ourselves without being given a hard time about it, right?

@hilllllllly, i admit sometimes i can be a bit too much. :sweatingbullets:

 

maybe i get too involved and i think a lot, so that's why i was seeing your thoughts as a stretch, as if you were absolutely trying to prove to yourself that he is not injured and were coming up with weird ideas to justify your theory. but i'm always happy to discuss things here and didn't want to come off as harsh or sound like my opinion is better than yours.

OP was referring to park seojoon, but i thought i'd share since we said before that the B team is about superheroes and the production company is the same that creates marvel movies. this must be why we didn't get any news about that drama (and also because it's probably too soon to get some, sure), nor knew that jongsuk was ever casted for it, or received an offer for it, and if it wasn't for that twitter user that posted about the rumor, we wouldn't have known until now.

Good for  PSJ - his fans must be elated !  :D

Cool @jongkkot on the B-team linkage.  I saw that on twit with JS name but didn't think that it's to do with superheroes.
