I think it is out of respect that they end it with "and Jang Hyuk". His is a supporting role but his name did not appear under the supporting casts name list. If it had, it would make many fans upset. By putting "and Jang Hyuk" appears like he is a stand alone figure. I think his screen time at the beginning would not be so much until the time when YBW is ready to conquer. I guess....

I really hope not! :( That would be :unsure: I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the scene they showed in previews are usually scenes of earlier few episodes, like how they already showed a lot of the preview scenes of the 3 leads over ep1-2, so hopefully there’s more interesting development to come for JH.... but I get what you mean, we really gotta keep our hopes low haha. 

 

On another note, just an observation I noticed but - in the opening credits that I watched on Netflix, they start with the leads names, and then all the supporting characters names and lastly they end it with “그리고 장혁”. Which essentially means “and Jang Hyuk”. This reminds me of how typically in english movies or dramas - if the similar formula follows in how opening credits are written, the person who gets this “spot” is usually “someone who is charismatic and prominent in their career and popularity making a special/key appearance in a show”. I wonder if the same logic applies here in this drama from the way they sequenced his name in the opening credits. Maybe I’m overthinking it, but that could explain @azureblue7 statement that even the other senior characters appear more often than JH. 

 

Any thoughts guys? 

I think you are on to something. I think JH name appearing last in the credits is significant. I think we will have the leads being the focus, mired in their emotional "friends to enemies" and "love triangle" main plot, as the the actual story progresses which I'm guessing will heavily involve JH. Maybe that is what the PD meant when he said JH is in the background...

Thanks for pointing that out. That may explains his screen time may not that as much as some of the supporting roles but he still plays a significant role.

 

I got this from wiki under billing ,

"An actor may receive "last billing", which usually designates a smaller role played by a famous name. They are usually credited after the rest of the lead cast, prefixed with "and" (or also "with" if there is more than one, as Samuel L. Jackson was in the latter two Star Wars prequels)."

 

So it means that it is not that JH is now being relegated to doing supporting roles. He is still a big name and people know it and that is why his name is placed last in the credits and he is included in the posters even though he may not have as many scenes.

Really? I like his role in Strangers from hell. Not as much screen time as the leads or even some of the supporting actors but he leaves such a deep impression. I'm sure  JH will have that effect too. Less screen time but impressive performance.

So it’s officially how it’s done in the entertainment world! Thanks for researching that @azureblue7. Then it definitely all makes sense now. It was just about misleading previously to think that he was one of the “main leads” in the traditional sense when they gave him a character poster but yet not in the main poster/press con. But now I see clearer what role he has in the show, and can change my perspective of how I watch it and how I anticipate his scenes. ^_^

But in Deep Rooted Tree he was the main lead, not here though. So pls dont raise your expectations too much. I have a feeling all those scenes in teasers which we already saw his face will be all that we are getting.

This method of accreditation is also followed by Indian movie industries. Whenever any popular or talented leading actor/actress make rather brief appearance in a movie his/her name get last billing.

There was an extremely popular yesteryear Bollywood character actor named Pran who always used to get last billing in his movies. He usually played villainous characters but was considered even bigger box office draw than the protagonists. :D

He was a talented and charismatic actor but unfortunately he was in the industry which is not known for nutrturing talents. But still he enjoyed immense popularity in 50s, 60s and 70s. Such was his fear that people of that era who got exposed to Bollywood  stopped naming their kids 'Pran' altogether even though it has good meaning(equivalent to Chinese Qi).:sweatingbullets:

Even his biography was titled,

 

'....and PRAN'

Actually I didn't notice or got smitten by him in SSOBG. I didn't find him handsome (maybe is the hairstyle). I only took notice of him in TY because of his chemistry with Seo Shin Ae (little girl). Needless to say, I fell in love with Dr Min after that. :lol:And this man gets hotter and more handsome as the years go by.

Maybe it is just me who felt differently - when I read comments about Chil Sung (Jang Hyuk) having great chemistry with Sae Woo (the female lead), I was like "huh"?? I didn't find them having chemistry. I would pair Chil Sung up with Ji Kyung (the Vet) but of course not sure whether they both will have chemistry since they didn't have a love line. :triumph:

I just watched "this is my home" in which Jang Hyuk helps build a home for the unfortunate (guest appearance). It should be filmed around 2017 (his hairstyle is the VOICE hairstyle). JH shared that his father was proud of being in the construction profession but JH didn't want to pursue this profession because he will not have time to spend with his family. JH admired families who could spend quality time together.  

 

Such a gifted actor, a wonderful humble man, a loving husband and doting father.

:lol: I think his wife will also prefer him with short hair. I remembered he mentioned at an interview while he was filming Chuno that his family couldn't wait for him to cut his long hair...Haha!  I wonder what kind of hairstyle will he don for his next drama? :P

Yes I remembered too. His wife must be can't stand his hairstyle in Chuno. And this hair too (the one at the gymn) is real ugly. :phew: And I think his little princess is not going to kiss him with his rather long "beard" below the chin. Lol.

Poor him.. guess long hair at this awkward length is harder to maintain. 

And hairstyle does make a difference..take a look..Haha!

Why do people not like this hair style? I really like it. Also, he just worked out in the gym, even the best hair style usually will get messed up during a workout... I don't know many women who look good at the end of a workout...

 

I think the worst hair styles he had were the one at the beginning of Midas (what the hell was that?!) and, obviously, the one with his hair combed down his forehead, led by the cut in IRIS2 :) 

But I too cannot wait for the shoot of My country to be over so that JH can move on to a lead role, whatever the hair style... :)

 

In the mean time, I wonder if JH will participate in the promotion once his role gets more significant in My country
