OMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII....................I just checked out another video and this is the first time I am hearing it. I am watching the video now and will come back to comment later. But the comment on baidu says that Joo Won did not take up the role as the 2nd lead in The Moon That Embrace The Sun because he was originally cast as the lead but then later was relegated to 2nd lead so he did not take up the offer. 
Well, all I can say is THANK GOD! Otherwise, we won't have the Bridal Mask that we know, right? 
-edit- it's a very long video and the part on Joo Won starts at around 35th minute. Maybe it's just speculation and the entire video was about celebrities who declined roles in drama/movie that went on to become a HIT. The show ended by saying it was a shame that Joo Won did not take up the offer. Well, it's one show's loss and OUR GAIN :D ill rip this video. ill be back!! *heart beats fast * =))

139 new posts ???? just one more page and this thread will have 400 pages, I was kind of in silent lurker mode these past few days.
so first things first, Joo Won already chose his new drama ???? can't he take at least two months rest ????? Gaksital made him really exhausted, why can't he go on a trip like he wanted ???? is it the agency ??? so many questions in my mind, but I hope he will take good care of himself, What about Pak Ki Woong ???no new project ??? any news ??? 
I still can't let go of Gaksital, I can't find any drama that can match it, so I'm giving all my time to books.
@sunshine4ever @mrdimples @mojobobo I again thank you for your hard work in translating articles, it was fun reading them n_____n and sunshine, I love your new avatar and signature  :D
I'll be back here later  :-h
we made it to 400 pages !!!!! thanks to me hhiihihihihihihihihihihihihihihiihhiihhihihihihihihihihi

“Rising Rapidly Like The LTE” Asia Today’s interview


Joo Won debuted in 2010’s Baker King and following closely was Ojakgyo Brothers. In KBS Bridal Mask, he has also become the charismatic lead who guarantees ratings. Not only in dramas. In Happy Sunday’s 1N2D, his aegyo maknae image has also won much popularity. In Seoul Yeouido Asia Today’s editing room, we meet with Joo Won. Although he looked a tad tired, we can still see the upright youthful image that  he portrayed in the drama.

3 Hits all home run? He did very well in each and every drama that he starred in.

“My luck is very good(laughs). After I discussed each drama with my agency then I made the decision. My attitude is not to have regrets in whatever you do, just put in my very best to do it, I will not think of anything else(laughs).

Park Ki Woong said your growth as an actor is shocking.

When I go to the film set, besides Park Ki Woong hyung, all the sunbaes were there. From them, I learnt a lot from their various strengths. I do feel that from this drama, I was able to grow.

Do you sense your popularity? Everywhere, there are people who cosplay Bridal Mask

The age range of fans have widened. Previously, the majority were all fans of my mother’s generation. Now it’s junior, middle and high school students who recognize me. Often, I would hear someone shouting “Oppa!” It seems like I have become an idol(laughs)

Do you feel that it is a heavy burden being Bridal Mask’s One Top?

This production cost 100 million and it is perfect in every way. The only weak link is having me as the lead. So the burden felt very heavy, I thought if everything was good then if it turned out bad, it is all my fault. I didn’t sleep well and mentally I became highly strung, among other things, I also became very sensitive. Every day I will check the ratings. Perhaps this is the responsibility of the lead actor.

Through Bridal Mask and 1N2D, set the image of Patriotic Youth.

“This is a title that makes one feel embarrassed. If I had done anything for my country then I may be able to accept it but I only starred in these two projects and I received such a title. I only saw the magnificence of Bridal Mask that’s why I made the decision. I only learnt of other actors’ reasons for rejection during the press conference. It was something I never thought of.

The personality seemed to be the very quiet sort. But sometimes it can suddenly change to become aegyo

I am definitely not the type who will speak first(laughs). I will not talk continuously. When I am with my friends, I am the one who listens. If friends have anything that upsets them, they will look for me. I am this type of person. But occasionally I will play aegyo. Recently on 1N2D, I often play aegyo wth the hyungs. Seung Woo Hyung is 87th batch and I was born in 87. Being friends like this, Seung Woo hyung was also able to accept. He always cares for me and I am very grateful to me. It’s not because the camera is rolling, that’s why we are like this.

Acting in both Bridal Mask and 1N2D at the same time, wasn’t it tiring?

Not tired(laughs). Although in Bridal Mask filming, I could sleep during the travelling, if my luck is good in 1N2D, I will be able to sleep for a much longer time and also I will be able to eat a lot of delicious food. 1N2D was like going on a holiday, travelling with people you are close to and having rest.

What do the Hyungs in 1N2D mean to you?

Hyungs to me are like a strong closely knit family. Appearing for the first time on a variety show was very stressful. Just opening my mouth was difficult, I had a lot of worries. Hyungs told me “ Just be like this and you will adapt.” Meeting hyungs was only once every 2 weeks but it felt as if we meet each other every day. Everyone will gather and chat on KakaoTalk. (Kim) Jong Min will always wear beautiful clothes in his photos(laughs)

Who gave the most advice?

(Lee) Su Geun is the most skilled. He will always say “You do well, 1N2D will also do well. Just be a bit more relaxed when you talk and you’ll be fine.” Su Geun hyung always takes special care of me, letting me do things. I cannot speak like this, aye……all the hyungs treat me really well(laughs)

What you will like to do in your next project?

“Up till now, I have been portraying characters older than myself, most of them are serious dramas or family drama. I will like to act for the first time, a character that is closer to my age. A relaxing, sweet ……and romantic comedy.”

To watch Bridal Mask Live on September 30th, 2012 (Sunday, from 8 am to 4 pm in Korea), here are some times conversion:

8 am in Korea converts to:

US (PST): 4 pm (Sat. Sept. 29th)

US (CST): 6 pm (Sat., Sep. 29th)

US (EST): 7 pm (Sat. Sept. 29th)

Singapore: 7 am (Sun. Sept. 30th)

Italy (Rome): 1 am (Sun. Sept. 30th)

There are some more countries people had been telling me they came from, but unfortunately I don't know your city so I can't really find the time conversion for you. If you want to watch it live, please go to this URL for a conversion of your time. Some of the times are so extreme. Please do not watch it if it conflicts with your sleeping time! I think mine is good enough that it hits before my bed time except I'm not even sure if I can handle 8 hours of watching. I think I can handle watching a bit. But I'm really hoping that there will be a version that we can download. Sorry didn't get  a chance to PM semifly yet.

Link to watch it live (I believe that KBS 1 should be the station to watch the episodes, please try both KBS 1 & 2. I am so sorry if none works because these are the only types of sites that I know):
KBS 1: http://www.kuhu.tv/live-tv/korean-tv/3904-kbs-tv.html
KBS 1: http://news.kbs.co.kr/kbs24/

KBS 2: http://livedekankoku.web.fc2.com/kbs2-live2.html

Happy Four Hundred Pages, Gaksital lovers!
I want to echo both @valinor500  & @Jessi15 and say: Bridal Mask Forever!

Tomorrow will be the DATE. We have double celebrations, JW's birthday and BM will be rebroadcasted with 480 minutes of director's cut special. I don't know why I feel a bit emotional so I thought I should make a small contribution as we retreat down the memory lane. The following pictures are not mine and I can't pinpoint to whom they should be credited to as they have been collected from various sources. Because I don't have a vast and rich collections therefore I have to make do with what I got.  

Lee Young/Lee KangTo/Gaksital:


The innocent, hard-working and loving Lee Kang To:



The cold-blooded, sullen and evil Imperial Policeman Lee Kang To:



The heart-broken & dejected Lee Kang To (after loosing his brother and mother):



The charismatic Gaksital:



The happy groom:



... As the one and only love has gone:
