Jang Hyuk has ruined this drama for me. I am bored unless I see him in a scene. If he is not there, the show doesn’t count. Every other character only exists to show how charismatic he is, how he is the best Lee Bangkok ever, and no one is ever going to top him.

He looks so regal! I like him the most when he’s in his warrior garb. But red looks good on him too.

The reason why I like (love) him so much is because he is down to earth and with good manners. Acting just like a normal person and not just because he is a celebrity he acts high and mighty. Another reason is that he is faithful to his marriage. I know this sounds personal but at least I know that the celebrity I admire, like and love is not a flirt but is a good husband, good father. 

Well said! Precisely those reasons (I mean, we no longer need to call out his acting skills because it’s just AMAZING). 

 

By the way guys, I recently saw online snippets of JH in a Japanese magazine (I think he was donning a dark blue/grey long cardigan). Not sure if you guys spotted the same? Anyone here happen to know if there was an interview article along with it, and translations if any? The pictures look like they were taken after Bad Papa. He had the same hairstyle as that show.

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. 

 Gaekju has a special place in my watching list coz the moral of the story. i like Bong Sam morality to the boot.

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

In the beginning. But, after his character aging he's more laid back and charismatic. But, I cringe at younger bong sam too. lol

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.

IRL but in the drama they kind doesn't have much age difference. :lol:

On another note it’s very rare to see actors who don’t mind showing their less than “attractive” side, what more on TV. JH on the other hand continues to challenge himself with difficult roles (even if he’s not the lead), being fully himself on variety shows (eg. Dragon bros and urban cops). Very diff from some celebrities who feel the need to only showcase a presentable side of themselves and maintain a very specific image through roles selected or types of appearances, especially in an entertainment industry and society that can be so judgmental. 

 

I think it really takes a strong core, principles and anchor to not be wavered and deeply affected by all that is happening around him. Still remember how Kim Sun Ah said that he’s one of her friends who has never changed at all. Truly one of a kind!

Completely agree! I was just thinking about JH taking difficult roles not many actors would take- seeing how even the majority of you guys, JH's fans, hate Robbers because of just how nasty JH's character was in the beginning, shows just how courageous JH was in taking that role. Oh Joon wasn't a charming fantasy conman like you'll see in most KDramas like The legend of the blue sea, but he was a realistic conman- meaning lacking in morals and cruel. And I so respected the show for doing that. The realness of of that show in dealing with so many issues like- redemption, homosexuality, sexuality in general (Oh Joon wasn't artificially celibate like we see in so many kdramas) and domestic violence is so rare, and this is why, in spite of the cliches and some of the direction, I like that show so much.

The same goes for Chuno- again, Dae gill wasn't your typical hero, he was hunting innocent people and beating them! I saw so many reviews of people not knowing how to deal with Dae gill because he was more real than they're use to. I read articled that said that Dae Gil was a ground breaking role in Kdrama because of his moral ambiguity, and again, this goes as a credit for JH. We saw it also in Bad papa.

His courage in choosing roles, his need to present something real no matter what, in addition to his immense talent is why i became a fan of his. 

Then I saw interviews with him and variety shows and became an even bigger fan seeing his honesty, shyness, humbleness, kindness... I love that he is not trying to pretend to being someone he is not- if he doesn't know something, he will admit to it (something that is very rare in most men), though sometimes he will lie about the oddest things, like avoiding a punch when he clearly didn't move, and you don't even know if it's just a weird dad joke :) . He is very reserved with people and very serious and he loves learning skills, whatever skills, which makes him a target of mockery in variety shows cause you're supposed to be funny not actually do the missions. There were so many shows I've seen where the MC said to him "Aren't you being a bit too serious?". This is why shows like Urban Cops, Real men and the fishing show are much better suited for him. They let him be as serious as he wants, while his natural goofiness relieves that seriousness every once in a while :)

Phew...:sweat_smile: sorry for the long rambling...

Frankly, I don't like him too neat except for Pil Joo. I like the other hair better, the hair when he gave the girl the sword. The left side falling that looks like Wang So.

Agree with you on the part of his courage choosing roles. Some actors will only choose the Prince Charming role so that he looks good all the time and the audience also feel good all the time. JH likes to explore roles/characters and we're his spoilt fans. :lol: He spoilt us.

Technically men can have children throughout their life(with as many women as they want) after hitting puberty.:lol:

Nature is only unkind towards women. But it's rumored that women of Hunza tribe(in present day Pakistan) can give birth even in their 60s. Will make sure to have their genes in next life.:w00t:

I totally agree with you! His down to earth personality is what makes him more endearing and makes him stand out from the rest.

(now) wonder if that is the snack he has been eating for 20 years. Or maybe his daughter favourite snack? I always associate strawberry bread with little girls. Lol...

 

Mm.. I don't think so. But he looks like he likes sweet stuff like strawberry icecream..haha

 

Still can't get over how adorable he was when he was mulling over whether he should eat or not eat the bread! He even shook his head after making a decision. Really child like! :lol:

And the cute way he types! Hahaha! I guess that's his charm.. on screen manly charisma  and off screen child like charm

@PrettysupYes this hairstyle but the angle is the other side. Showing his right side of the face. The scene where he gave the girl the sword to say she can kill him. 

 

@azureblue7I like the #1 and #3 hairstyle. The hairstyle with the earring. Oh I can't get over that scene where he tells the lady about sharing moonlight love. He is such a good seducer. Look at that face! If he looks at you like this, will you still faint @azureblue7? I will make sure I don't faint but say YES. :yum:And I also like the #3 untidy hairstyle with bloodstain face. 

 

Yes he is so super cute with the typing and the bread. Didn't we establish (quite some time ago) the things he couldn't do? Typing is one of them. Singing and what else? Was it cooking?

Maybe because he gotta share it with his daughter which makes him have sweet tooth. Like "no, mummy says you cannot finish all the ice cream" so daddy's gonna eat half. Hahaha! I hardly come across men who likes strawberry ice cream.

Same sentiment here.... I just started watching this drama last weekend, and I only have one thought.... why can't they focus this drama on the story of Yi Bang Won and casting JH as the lead?  Why introduce two lead characters that didn't even appear in history.  JH is capable of ruining a drama when he takes on a supporting role - WOL is one example.  And now My Country.... I wanted so bad to see the story of YBW unfolds because JH is so good in portraying this historical figure.  I wanted to see more of his actions and internal struggle in ascending to the throne.  That'll be so powerful to watch.  But I can't get this satisfaction :(  As the series goes, the other characters pale in comparison to YBW.  Now, i'm only looking forward to his scenes. 

 

When you're this good, you just have to be the lead.
