 I also find it weird. For most of JH drama (but this is not JH drama), usually he will come out for interview or even play games in variety shows or some form of drama promotion. This one he's quiet but like I said, this one is not JH drama. Even if he's contacted for interview, knowing how polite he is, he might decline due to he's not the main lead.

 

 

Haha I don't remember him having interviews or playing games in variety shows for drama promotions in the past few years. The last one I remember was in Gaekju 2015 when he attended some KBS variety program with the cast. After that, no more such activities.

He did interviews for sure- in "Radio Star" for Bad Papa, various entertainment shows. He did interviews for WOL- you had that long online interview he did with the other two actors. He appeared in Running man during the shooting of Money Flower... Besides that, he did appear in variety shows, not even necessarily to promote a show, just to support his friends- like that odd geriatric show with Li Mi Sook :) and Mom's Diary to support Kim Jong Kook... and lets not forget the Dragon Club, that ended up being a sort of promotion for Money Flower, even if an odd one :) 

But even if he doesn't participate in the promotion- at least the main cast should. And they also did nothing since the press conference.

That online interview for WOL was done on the press conference day itself, the Running Man during Money Flower was at the invitation of Kim JK because he needed a celebrity friend born in Dec, it was not to promote MF. Did he do Radio Star for Bad Papa? 

 

As for Dragon Club, Mom's Diary, Carefree Travellers etc, those were done in between dramas. He won't have the time to do variety in the middle of filming a live drama. So if u want to see him in a variety, u have to wait till this one to finish filming first, and before the next one to start.

 

Anyway I heard that JTBC seldom have promotions for its dramas, so maybe that can explain the lack from the 3 other leads?

He did Radio Star for the drama because other cast members were also present in the show. But RS airs on MBC so the network itself might have invited them to promote their drama. JTBC doesn't seem to have such intentions.

I think he participated in other variety shows for his friends. Not like RS didn't have one of his best buddy.:D

He even appeared in the talk shows after completing Beautiful Mind. So his appearances are definitely not fot promoting dramas. He just have friends  in most of the variety shows.

How shall I put it. I mean, in all of his drama - he does appear for some form of promotion of the drama or talk about the drama. For games, yes only Gaeku.  

Here are the Press Conference he appeared. I wrote what he wore so that maybe it can help to recollect. 

 

(1) Thank You Press Conference - black shirt and a white coat.

(2) Chuno - everything black + black cap. I think it is a preview, they stand on a stage.

(3) FTLY Press Conference - ugly yellow jacket.

(4) SOGC Press Conference - all black with a bow tie. 

(5) Empire of Lust Interview - white shirt with black jacket & bow tie.

(6) Ordinary People Press Conference - white inner shirt with black outer shirt & grey jacket

(7) The Flu Press Conference - suit with multi coloured tie

(8)  The Robber Press Conference - suit with yellow shirt 

(9) Tree with Deep Root Press Conference - all black

(10) Inside Outside Press Conference - tee shirt & leather jacket

(11) Money Flower Press Conference - ugly looking long jacket that looked like bathrobe

(12) Beautiful Mind Press Conference - all black

(13) Iris 2 Press Conference - all black

(14) Bad Papa Press Conference - all black (leather jacket)

(15) WOL Press Conference - V neck shirt and brown suit

 

This is what I mean by in all his drama, he does make some form of appearance but in My Country, he didn't appear at all at least until now we have not seen him and this is weird.

For Bad Papa he did an interview with the cast- which he seemed have used as a way to promote his friend, more than anything :)

 

 

I agree that recently many of his appearances seem unrelated to shows, but he also gave interviews for the shows like he did for Money Flower and Bad Papa. About the wok of love interview, even if it was at the same day of the press conference, it still was a very interesting interview that revealed a lot about JH and the way he works. These are the type of interviews I'd love to see. Basically, what I'm saying is that it seems we the fans have many questions for him concerning his current role and his future plans, and we'd love to see him answer those questions! :)

I really Don't understand this strange policy of JTBS of not doing promotion. But I do think that the reaction to his portrayal of YBW is so strong, that I'm guessing he's being contacted right now for interviews, even if JTBC is not pushing for them.

It seems like I'm not the only one sensing the show is moving towards a relationship between YBW and the girl. Seol hyun's fans seem to also sense it and they seem to love it! :) It amuses me that they think the chemistry between them is rare. I guess they don't know that JH that much or they would have know that he has good chemistry with just about everyone- he's that good!

It seems that those posting in this thread did not like her relationship with Hwi, and they think a relationship with YBW will be much more exciting. But if this will happen- I really hope they will make her a bit spicier...

Oh u were referring to press conferences? Well since he is only a supporting actor in this drama, perhaps he did not want to outshine the 3 leads hence he did not attend the press conf. Note that in all the 15 dramas you mentioned above, he was the main lead except for WOL. Then again, at least his face was in the main poster of WOL, but not in MC this time.

From this drama, many more will like JH and probably join us here to drool over him. Afterall, didn't we here also like him at different times and from different drama.

Not so true also. But this is individual preference. Jang Hyuk is able to have chemistry with every actress. He is able to get right in to the character to produce chemistry, but is the actress herself unable to produce the chemistry with him. Example, I find Tree with Deep Root actress unable to produce chemistry with him. I also find Gaekju actress lacking chemistry with him. But this is individual preference.

 I so agree. I find her so un matched with Hwi. 

Me too want her to have a relationship with Bang Won. I want them to like each other. Not necessary romance but like. You know, have that kind of deep friendship (like Pil Joo and Mo Hyun). Living in a palace, you don't even know who is friend or who is foe. So it'll be nice if there is true friendship. In the process if love develops, it would be nice too. Lol. Since they didn't hire a woman to play Bang Won wife, having a girlfriend is not a bad idea either. Heehee...

Sorry if I didn't make myself clear earlier. Yes, that's what I meant. He did appear in his drama. But since I mentioned that this is not JH drama in my earlier post, I am not surprised he will politely decline to any interviews because he isn't the lead. But in WOL he appeared in the Press Conference.

I think it also depends on whether the production team purposely didn't want him to attend the Press Conference. I just have a strong feeling the team didn't want him there. Knowing JH, he treats his work very seriously. If he can be there to promote the drama and get more viewers, why he wouldn't do that? He isn't the type of person to say I'm not the lead & refused to go. So I'm positive is the team didn't want him to go. If he attended, the attention will be on him and the 3 leads will look like a fool.

Well, I did say "just about" :sweat_smile:- you are right, there was no chemistry with the actress from Tree with Deep Roots, but I read no one has chemistry with her :), and Gaekju I didn't watch- it just looks so boring to me... Another example for me would be LDH in Chuno, but that was because I thought she was awful in that show. Strangely he had plenty of chemistry with her in Robbers, where she was much better... I guess it depended there on the director and role...

I don't want LBW to have such reationship with Seolhyun's character. It would look icky becasue of the age difference. I even criged a little while watching Beautiful Mind because JH had an ajjushi hairstyle while Park So Dam has a baby face.

 

Moreoever her heart belongs to Hwi and being the lead actress she is not going to change her preference. Not like we don't know who is the lead actor here.:P

 

But she has intresting chemistry with JH so I won't mind if they keep bickering in upcoming episodes.

Jung Rye Won is one of my most favourite actresses in K-drama world. It's the writer who made her character awful. I would love to see her in another drama with JH preferably a kooky rom-com.

You can check her other dramas to see how adorable she is.

Yes yes, I forgot to mention BM. I didn't find them having chemistry as a lover. As a friend yes. I think the make up and hair people didn't make PSD look good. She looked like a student dating her father. If they had given her a proper hairstyle like the one they did photoshoot, they do look quite nice together.

To be honest, Gaekju was boring. You know the art of fast forward comes in handy. I prefer his interaction with the 2nd female lead than the lead. I prefer LDH with him in chuno than robbers. I didn't like him in robbers. I did'nt like the storyline. Their kiss and bed scene in Iris was hot.

I don't recommend Gaekju to anybody because besides being a poorly written drama JH's character shouts and 'laughs' a lot.

His voice sounds different in many dramas. In few scenes of My Country he sounds like he is suffering from irritated throat. Maybe his voice has aged like he claimed in the last fan meeting.:P

So you recommend to watch it? I think I didn't watch it because of JH's look in it, but I do know the show got a lot of awards, so it should be good...

It's clear we're very different :) I know I'm in a minority, but I like Robbers much more than Chuno. Dae Gil is magnificent, don't get me wrong, but he was also very static. In Robbers at least JH's character showed growth... As to LDH- even if you don't like Robbers, you have to agree that her role there was much better than in Chuno and so was her performance.

As to the bed scene in IRISII- I'm probably in a minority about this too :sweatingbullets:, but I found that bed scene very cringey- it felt like both of them were very uncomfortable in it. LDH even said that JH was uncomfortable in the kiss scene, and it looked like it...

Everyone has his own taste, I would recommend you to at least try it to find out for yourself. Personally I love it! But I hate Robbers though, haha..
