I agree with everything you guys said. I fully trust him and his choices but I was a little disappointed with that new variety show.

I didn't like the way they treated Jang Hyuk in Hometown Flex, for example, at all. I can't even watch that show again. So I don't think they will treat him well. I know he's not a kid and doesn't need to be protected but I feel that way.

 

I think most of us felt like you about Hometown Flex. To this day I can't bring myself to watch the first episode. The second one was better, but just a bit. 

I also trust his judgement, but the problem is that this show involves CTH, and he said that for his dragon club friends he will make a fool of himself if they ask him to. And this is why I'm concerned about this.

I was putting my hopes on that rumor about a tvN drama because almost every tvN drama is a huge success and could bring the International recognition that he deserves but at this point I think he refused that project. Maybe he is waiting for a good script that will bring challenges for him as an actor and I respect that.

 

I hope that is the case...

I think I read something about his International career by the time of Dance of the Dragon. I think that was the plan but it didn't work. 

 

He said that he did audition for The Green Hornet, but he wasn't accepted because of his English. It seems that the biggest obstacle here is his English...

Anyway I hope they won't hurt his feelings in this variety show because I think he feels very uncomfortable sometimes. 

Considering this involves CTH, I don't have much hope about that...

 

Just posted... Looks like he just woke up :)

Just had to show my friends on here one of my Christmas presents  Hope you all had a blessed Christmas.  

Hi, everyone!  I'm Darla. I am new here and have browsed a bit but haven't posted before. I didn't discover Jang Hyuk until recently and have been making my way through his dramas after first seeing h

Finally got to watch Hyuk's movie on the big screen! Guess it was not surprising that I saw more men than women watching the movie. Probably the genre appeals more to male audience. Anyway, I was supe

Haha! No, it doesn't.  But he looks like he's pouting his lips..?

 

yes, it does! :) look at his eyes, they are slightly shiny. Either that or he just yawned... :D

 

His lips are always pouting. It's what they do! :hwaiting2:

I think ppl need to give LSY some slack. If you watch RM that he frequently guested he was pretty funny. Recently, I binge watch episode that had him and I couldn't agree more that LSY can be RM regular. Also, I look his imitation on positive side, there's no drama that was so popular like Chuno until ppl keep imitating Dae Gil. Not only LSY but others too. In any variety show, when there's something like action scene Chuno background music automatically will be played. Even there's no JH in there. I realised in variety for action there's Chuno bgm that frequent same like when is there romance there's Best Love bgm will be played.

It's 11 years since Chuno but still it was a hard saeguk to top to this day. I just proud that he had Dae Gil as his most iconic character. 

In my opinion, I'm ok with what he did or who involve or his friend is. If I'm annoyed I just don't watch it. At least he don't mingled with much more worse ppl that still around in SK entertainment getting job left and right.

If there's no good scripts given to him currently, I think taking on variety shows can be a good idea too. At least we can get to see his dorky and cute self.. The timing is now!

Oh I didn't know about that, it's a little sad. I hope the presence of Lee Sang Yeop will prevent CTH to make JH uncomfortable.

 

 

Loved the videos of Sumi Sanjang episode that everyone posted, it seems really funny. I hope subs are out soon. :heart:

Son Hyun-Joo mentioned Hyuk’s name when he was asked who he will like to invite as guests to his new variety program. Is that selfie taken when he was on the way to film that ? Hee hee..

@azureblue7 He looks like a little kid in those varieties, dancing so cute! His cute little hand movements. I keep forgetting this is majestic Bangwon! How can it be the same person? 
 

I will participate in Kfangurl’s Money Flower group watch and that will give me patience to wait a bit more for him in dramas. 
 

@Biology Lesson So it was the english that prevented him to do The Green Hornet? But I thought that character he was going to play is a mute :P Did the movie do well? I think its a character that Bruce Lee used to play right? I kinda feel sorry he didn’t achieve an international career then but I also wonder if we would’ve missed out on some of his iconic works if he had, since that happened prior to Chuno (I know you didn’t particularly like it but it was good for his career) Fated to love you, Beautiful Mind, Money Flower. I kinda don’t want to trade any of those for meh Hollywood stints. At the time most asian actors only played in action or martial arts films and would do only action scenes. Even to this day, actual “acting” opportunities are scarce for them. Lee Byung Hun is an example, he has been in Hollywood but has he done an actual acting work that shows his acting skills? I feel not (I may be wrong because I haven’t really followed him)
 

However, right now, there seem to be more opportunities opening with the demand from major streaming services. Especially in horror/fantasy/sci fi genre. I’m more hopeful for an opportunity to open for him in this context. I can imagine him in The Mandalorian universe (to give an example), and he can play a beautiful alien, that way he doesn’t have to speak english (ok most aliens speak english in these shows but if the plot needs it, they won’t lol) or maybe some new HBO thing where he can show his action skills and also his great eye acting. Of course this is just me dreaming/hoping for some kind of miracle Hollywood moment where some good director stumbles upon one of his works and falls in love because I don’t see Sidus or JH actively pursuing this anymore (unfortunately) 


PS This is random but I wanted to mention, I had no idea Ma Dong Seok had done so much work in Hollywood and that he is actually korean-american. 
 

PS2 Apparently Choi Ki Sup posted a script on his IG. Has he ever done a movie or drama without JH?

He's so different and that goes to show how good he is at acting. He just becomes the character. I can't imagine Ban won dancing like that.. lol!

 

You got me curious about Kisup  and I did a search about him. Apparently he did do one drama without Hyuk. And I'm surprised he's in Tomb of the river too?? Hahaha!

The odd thing is that he can look cool dancing when he is acting! Like is Robbers, and, obviously, in Dance of the Dragon... His shyness just gets him every time!:D

This is what I remember he said in an interview. I don't remember now which one, but I remember the interviewer confused the name of one of the other actors up to that role...  I saw just a little bit of that movie, and in it the Korean character spoke. It was actually a prominent role, from what little I saw. But, From what I understood, JH didn't miss anything by not doing that movie- it bombed! 

 

But a role of a mute would have been interesting for JH. Maybe something like inspector Clouseau's butler in the Pink panther? He almost never spoke and still managed to be hilarious! :)

The thing is that even when Korean movies are successful around the world, like Train to Busan and Parasite, international audiences never pay too much attention to the actors themselves. I've seen several reviews of The train to Busan and Parasite, and I noticed that even the reviewers would not mention any of the actors by name. And it's clear that the Korean actors that do get to act in a Hollywood movie usually have a very good English and accent, but even then are mostly in forgettable roles, as you've said. I guess more than I want him to do an international production, I want him to get away from the restrictions and formula of Kdramas. I want him to do something a bit more realistic and raw.

Exactly! I also want him to do something produced for one of the streaming services. I know that in India they started producing such shows, and they are so good, that even movie stars, that until now would never do a series for Indian TV, are now doing series for amazon and Netflix. And this is what I want for JH.

While I think it’s disappointing for all of us that taking on a variety host role means likely no drama for the rest of the year, I somehow am quite positive that when he chooses to come back, he will come back with a bang! Just a gut feeling haha. For now, let’s just hope his new variety is fun - I believe his time will come again. There are many actors who took longer hiatuses than him but find good scripts again that catapulted them back to the limelight. I think it’s more important that he gets a strong script and role than to get something non-memorable like TMWYS (sorry but IMO I really think that show did nothing for his career :(). 
 

so let’s just hope for the best for his new variety! I think if he chose to take it, he would have been comfortable enough with CTH and that’s why he accepted it. LSY seems to be a nice guy and he is much younger than JH so I don’t think he will be “making fun or teasing” him esp in Korea where they take respect for seniors and age very seriously. I think it would be interesting to see their dynamics.

I like variety shows, so I'm happy about this news. I like CTH and LSY too. I've watched so much variety, like Running Man and 1N2D, that I don't even blink at the teasing. It will likely have a short run. That's the new trend in variety shows, a limited run with a possible season 2 if the ratings are decent. That's the deal with CTH's upcoming variety show with Zo In-sung.

 

I'd like to see JH in a Netflix original. I'm looking forward to several on their schedule for 2021, but they are getting big movie stars like Gong Yoo, Lee Jung-jae, Yoo Ah-in. Unfortunately, I think a string of low-rated, mediocre dramas has hurt JH's career a bit. It's probably not a bad idea for him to do some variety instead of taking whatever drama comes along, just to be working.

@Prettysup Ok, I am happy he is active, working, and that we'll get to continue seeing him (this is obviously much better than not seeing him alone) but on the other hand, I miss him so much in dramas, I want to cry at the same time :brokenheart:

 

I'm not a variety show fan, I only watch them because I miss him and he is adorable in them, but come on!!!! I get the feeling we won't see him in a drama this year 

Haha I will watch him in anything. 
 

I was watching law of the jungle —- I love how they always like to use the music from Chuno when JH is hard at work! Like starting the fire.

 

is almost like he has exclusive usage of that OST :)

From the preview for today's episode-

Jane's caption:

 

<Edited from the pre-release video on Feb.27>

Kang Daniel made a quickie Citron(Yuzu) syrup out of citrons that Jang Hyuk picked from trees during the day. Under the harsh weather, no wonder hot and sweet citron tea made a big comfort. Good job done Kang Daniel and Park Gun!

Ran into this vague post, looks like from an IG account of a restaurant or an event organizer? The thing is that JH and the rest of the guys from the new Variety show just announced have all been tagged, including the channel. Maybe the new show (named Nationwide Bang Cook Cook??)  is going to be a food show?

 

If this is true than looks the ep will be broadcasted on April 3rd.

 

The translation of the caption:

This is the first room on April 3rd.
