@The Reel Life The girls too! Sometimes they look like they are wearing a sack of potatoes, a fashion that is definitely not suitable for me :lol: although sometimes I envy them cause they look so comfy

Come to think of it, the way JH looks in these pictures is the early nineties look which sadly makes a comaback these days. It reminded me of the outfit worn by young Keanu Reeves in Paula Abdul videoclip "Rush Rush" (1991). The same oversized jackets, loose ill fitting and too short slacks. And I absolutely hate this style, because that was in vogue in my late teens/  early twenties and I wore my share of shoulder pads and high waisted slacks pleated up front - the fashion which can only be pulled off by very tall and thin persons.

 

So you guys think he was dressed like that by a stylist?! I thought he just woke up and put on whatever he found in the closet, cause maybe he didn't want to wake his wife... :) If what he is wearing is the current style, then that's kinda depressing - baggy pants that don't reach the shoes are horrible in my eyes... :huh:

But you might be right, it might be a recent trend- I remember in the press conferences and wrap party of MC, the young actors were dressed horribly, with ill fitting clothes, while JH was dressed very elegant. It's possible that they were dressed by stylists and he dressed himself...

Oh well. I am going to mourn JH's dark locks.

Me too, I'm kinda depressed that he cut his hair cause that means for sure we are not getting another show with OHJ, and I wanted that- so much!

@Biology Lesson, how about Hyena? Have you tried it? As I said, I found it very entertaining, if morally dubious.

I didn't see it yet. I will try it... why not? The thing is that the more Kdramas I watch the more I get frustrated by their inability to convey real and complex emotions. I mean, watching My Mister, even though I was seeing the development of a very sweet and painful love story, I knew the show will not follow the natural progression of such a relationship into passion, so that makes the shows odd and kinda boring. Can JH please give us something to look forward to? Something more complex? PLEASE!

@Biology Lesson I’m going with your “he put on first things he found in the closet” theory. I prefer to think this way :P

But looking at recent fashion disasters that we've seen, It kinda makes sense that he was dressed for that shoot by a stylist... I'm swaying more in that direction. I mean, no one in his right mind will buy those strange looking pants, no? :blink: Unless those pants are his wife's, and he didn't notice because of the dark... :joy:

Several news about his haircut :

 

Jang Hyuk, superior visual with short cut...Are you 45 years old?
 

Actor Jang Hyuk showed off a neat short cut after a long time.

 

On the 29th May, Jang Hyuk's agency Sidus HQ's official Instagram said, "Finally, a short cut. Long hair removal. "It's been a long time since I saw actor Jang Hyuk's neck," and a photo was posted.

 

The photo released shows Jang staring at the camera with a neat haircut.


In particular, the 45-year-old is unbelievably superior and warm-hearted, attracting viewers' attention.

Meanwhile, Jang last starred in the OCN drama "Tell Me What You Saw" which ended in March.

I am positive it was the stylist. Actors are not really allowed to wear whatever they want for a photoshoot. There is the director, agency, stylist and photographer to take care of these things, actors have little or no say in this. Also - I would rather think it was the stylist who put these clothes on him and not something that he has in his closet, because it would prove he has no fashion sense, lol

Well, Hyena is not slow and boring, for starters (I think you complained that My Mister is slow). Secondly, I believe the relationship progresses in a natural way however the emotions are not showed down the audience's throats. Do not want to get your hopes high, though - because there might be something that I missed which you would dislike :)

This is a subject that I have not yet vented my feelings - the fashion in K-Dramas. How many times I saw these lovely slim willowy girls with a waist I would die for dressed in the most horrible way, as if the stylist wanted to make them look fat and awkward? I thought it is impossible to dress a slim and shapely person in an unattractive way, but little did I know.

I see nothing freaking neat in this haircut :angry:. On the contrary, it is messy and ugly. He was looking neat with his hair long and silky smooth.

Loved this article from the same website too. 
https://www.marieclaire.com.tw/entertainment/news/48384

 

it basically gushed about how he is a model husband and had not have a single rumor/gossip about his marriage ever since he got married (in the past 12 years) :wub:

 

id like to think this takes intentional, concerted effort for rumors to not happen (unless the person is not a very famous actor/artist) to begin with then they won’t attract much attention. But he’s considered very famous and successful as well, and for him to maintain this state truly speaks of the amount of effort and thoughtfulness he puts into protecting his family!!

How dare he?! He dared to cut his hair, and then he posts his long hair pictures?! Doesn't he know people are in mourning ?! :bawling: I lost my OHJ...

 

Oh, well... :D

 

there better be an announcement of a new project soon that will make it worth it!

The one which is no no for me is wearing a big ribbon on the head, socks (as in what we wear to school) with high heels & with frills all over the clothes. Lol...

For official events, they are dressed by their stylist. But again, k fashion & our fashion...:blink:

I think, to a certain extent, k media is also respectful of artistes private life. They don't shove rumour down the artistes throat. Some media in other country, literally try ways & means to "make" rumour out of a married actor. 1 c actress in an interview said she "divorced" every 6 months. The media "make" her husband divorced her every 6 months.

I'm late to the party, but OMG! What a terrible haircut. I agree with all of you that it gives VOICE vibes (oh, l'horreur! I now wonder how I wasn't  put off my JH obsession by watching it, since it was my first JH show after the Bangwon experience), I really loved his long hair (his looks in TMWYS are top notch for me) :wub:

 

Going on my MF journey: Ok, so it’s been shown that all that UST between Pil-Joo and Mal-Ran wasn’t indeed UST, but very resolved sexual tension. It’s been a nice surprise. Well, maybe “nice” is not the right word to put it, since the relationship is so wrong in too many levels (she’s his evil stepmother who had his brother killed, and he wants to rip her apart painfully); but it’s refreshing to see people having actual sex in a Korean drama that it’s not a) (off screen) marriage sex b) extramarital sex that ends up in pregnancy for the sake of plot c) rape/prostitution that defiles the secondary female character forever and makes her unworthy of true love and/or a happy ending. 

TBH, I find very unrealistic how sex is handled in Korean dramas, and how usually the main characters are portrayed as completely asexual. Am I supposed to believe that a healthy man (or woman) in his/her 20/30s is happily living in completely celibacy waiting for his/her One True Kindergarten Love to (re)appear? Really? At the beginning I found it somewhat amusing in a kind of surreal way, but right now I find it utterly tiresome, and  it puts me off the story. So I’m liking the fact that in MF there is so much sex going on behind closed doors. 

It’s funny because I went to watch - out of curiosity -  the first five minutes of TWOTM, because I remembered that, at the beginning of Dr Foster, the way to show that she had a fulfilling marriage was showing the couple having very hot and passionate sex. In TWOTW, the way of expressing the same concept was her looking smuglyly to her wedding pictures. I found it very illustrative of the differences between the two cultures. But then, you go and watch Park Chan-Wook’s films and they are almost pornographic. So I suppose it’s something related to TV dramas and their target and some censorship code of theirs. 

 

@Biology Lesson I second the Parasite recommendation. But if you are looking for character depth, I don't think characterisation is the strength of that movie. It's a social satire, so all the characters are sort of parodic. But it's very worth a try. Really.

Which scene are u referring to? I feel like we watched 2 different shows! Lol. I thought it was never resolved - are u referring to The ending of episode 8 (I think, can’t quite rmbr)? Cos I thought it was intentional that it was vague and many people were confused. I don’t rmbr any actual sex scene in the drama :sweatingbullets:

Actually there is that same scene you were talking about - but it’s not in the first 5 mins. I think it was in the first 15-20 mins? But if I’m guessing correctly the scene you’re referring to in the Brit version was also in the korean version.

Yes, I think it’s the episode 8, after B-chan and Birdgirl got married. It’s true nothing is actually shown, but IMO it’s heavily, heavily hinted that they had sex. And something in the way the scene is played made me assume that it wasn’t the first time. And it makes sense for both of the characters: she is the kind of woman that uses sex to manipulate the men around her (as in the case of Secretary Oh); and he is willing to do everything and anything to destroy her, and sex can be another tool to use against her. In fact, now all those weird, almost creepy intimate scenes of them make more sense to me in the show. 

But I don’t know, maybe everything is in my dirty imagination. :sweatingbullets:

Because that’s another problem I have with relationships in Kdramas: I never know what to expect or assume regarding the sex innuendos (or the sex aspect in general). I never know if I’m reading too much into it due to my Western mind-set, and korean people are really that asexual. It happened to me as well in Chuno, in that scene in which Daegil is drunk and sad and broken and sleeps with Seol-hwa because “life is shitty and she’s warm”. In my mind, I would perfectly assume that some despair sex happened that night, but since it’s a korean drama, I suppose they only cuddled all along. Or all those established couples that have been dating for years but never touch each other, I'm always wondering if they are sleeping together or not, maybe they are waiting until they get married. I don’t know what to think anymore. :lol:

 

About TWOTM, I don't know if we are talking about the same scene. I really watched very little of it, only a pair of minutes. I want to rewatch Dr Foster before watching TWOTM (I saw it when was released back in the day, 2015 maybe? and I don't remember many details), but right now I don't have the time to do it. But I'm looking forward to seeing it :)

I would agree with you, if it wasn't for TMWYS. I was so sure JH would not agree to do another OCN show with the director of Voice unless he made sure it was good enough. But I was wrong, and, as much as I enjoyed OHJ, the show itself was a mess and he didn't get to show what he promised- a more psychological story that involves healing. So, I think until we hear about a new project- I will continue to be a little bit worried :)

Well, I can only say the intention is good, but the outcome no one can guarantee.  At least his character in TMWYS is definitely more watch-worthy than Voice.   

 

But seriously, I really don't think he'll take on Voice 4.  Can't imagine him doing the same genre again, what's more a sequel.
