I think they want a younger actor. They initially courted Ji Chang Wook. But I’m fine with him not being courted for LUCA. I’m not a fan of KHS’s directing or his works so far, tbh. Much prefer for JH to explore working with other new directors. Also, not super into the storyline. I still want a romance melo storyline haha. Don’t think the leading lady in Luca would be a fit for JH too, chemistry wise. 

LDH can play strong female which would be different though, but perhaps you're right about director.

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

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

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

@Biology Lesson @phoenix24 Luca sounds sci-fi ish, which could be excellent or  terrible if not well executed. Koreans don’t have a “great” track record in that genre unless we are talking about the “Parasite” director who did a great job with Snow-piercer. Normally in k-drama their sci fi is mostly fantasy which doesn’t even follow any “rules” so they make them up as they go, at times contradicting themselves, creating further confusion. 

The reason I now would like this director to work again with JH is what he said in that interview. What he said says that he got who JH is and what he can bring to a production and he seems to really want to give JH all the resources he can to achieve his vision. if I hadn't read this interview, I would never have wanted JH to work with him again as he did Voice...

@corey I’m almost sure Daemang is not online. I bought the DVDs (not original) Also, while I personally like it a lot (especially JHs character story) I’m not “recommending” it. It’s an old drama, slow paced. In fact, honestly I rarely ever “recommend” stuff because everyone has such different taste. For example I wouldn’t have recommended Miss Korea to everyone, it was specific to @Biology Lesson because of the actor she liked in Misaeng. But I didn’t warn about the drama’s weirdness and slowness because I honestly don’t remember, sorry. I guess I’m only left with my overall impression. 

 

Like I said, I don’t even recommend JH dramas to people. If people ask me I mention what I liked but likes and dislikes are so subjective.And It’s impossible to find a flawless show. There will always be something. Just test things out and see if it’s your cup of tea or not. 

Oh, please, don't stop recommending! It was me after all that asked for recommendations, and obviously tastes don't always correspond. It can be a swing and a miss or a resounding success. So don't stop :)

Why is he so cuteeeeeee????? I want him to pinch my cheek! (I have plenty of cheek to be pinched too :lol:

 

Awwww that girl is so tiny and cute too 

 

BTW I’m trying to learn the song Creep so I can sing it with Hyukie when we meet (in my dreams) but, hey, this song is not easy for me. Like, the notes are not necessarily too high or too low but I easily get out of tune with this one. Not sure why (not that I normally sing well lol but I’m finding my rendition of this one particularly unpleasant lol) 

 

@corey Forgot to tell you, I live in USA but I wasn’t born here. When I said Shogun aired in my country I meant, where I grew up :P

I had a Hyukie dream last night. I still remember it quite vividly so I’ll type it down. But I didn’t meet him per se, it was a new drama that I was “living in”. Like living inside the drama, but didn’t get to see his character haha sad. 
 

anyway, it was about how he was the king of some Korean dynasty in the past, then something happened to him and as he was trying to save himself, he transported to the present. But the trick is, he can’t exist as an individual in the present. He has to take the place of someone else. And in the modern world, the female character was played Ha Ji Won. I don’t know if it was because I was reading all the secret garden and Yoon Sang Hyun/Oska talk, but it was reminiscence of that. So when JH is in the modern world, he doesn’t take on her body (like secret garden) but instead, when he exists, the girl will disappear. They take turns existing 50% of the time, and never have the chance to meet each other because of this unique phenomenon... and then I woke up from my sleep :sweat_smile:

 

I find the premise so much more interesting than TMWYS and some other shows he has done haha.

this is so sexy, the way his hand slowly  caresses her arm...

But the thing is- I can't look at any of the clips from this movie without thinking about how stressed JH was while filming this movie. Can't forget that JH said he experienced panic attacks for the first time in his life, while filming thins movie.

@Biology Lesson So HOT! But yeah poor JH. I think the actress also mentioned that he got sick (possibly related to the stress) and at some point he was so weak that she felt she had to hold him but he continued filming still (I think she was giving an example of how hardworking he is) This is if my memory is not failing me. I think there must be some interview floating around with that quote. 
 

Oh and pffffft I can’t believe I forgot to mention, LSK (Miss Korea male lead) is also the protagonist of “My Ahjussi” aka “My Mister”. That drama has great reviews. I’m actually watching the first minutes of it to see if I get hooked.

Wow! That I didn't know. For JH to be that weak, means he was really in a bad way... It's amazing how JH manages to conquer his fears and insecurities and physical weaknesses through sheer iron will. Just now I read that, as you said before, that JH used to smoke a lot. I read an account from a guy that worked on Chuno that said that whenever JH wasn't filming, he was smoking. That shows just how much stress he was under...

Oh yeah and I remember a reporter mentioned that too. That while he was conducting his interview he took several breaks to smoke (I suppose it was a long interview)

I've been thinking that many of us miss JH as for the last several months we've been getting regular updates and footage of JH as he did MC and then immediately continued to do TMWYS... And, now- we get nothing but the random gym glimpses!:tears: This is so frustrating!!

At any rate- saw this picture, that I think it from the wrap party of MC-

@Biology Lesson Awwww so pretty! His hair is so beautiful! *looks at her own nasty quarantine hair and sobs*
 

I miss him! And I’m thinking, can we think of a group activity we can do to make the wait less tough?  Hmmm maybe rewatch something together and do recaps, gifs, something I dunno! Let’s think of something 

 

When Gumi and I started working on the blog, it was precisely during a “drought” like this, we were missing JH (it was after Iris 2 and I think we were looking forward to the release of The Flu oh and yes, there was all that promotion, in fact Gumi’s first post was about The Flu) We mostly really wanted to find more international fans to gush with. It felt like there was none at the time. Of course IG wasn’t a thing then (its funny to think how things have changed since then)

We should think of something... The wait is not easy... :(

In the mean time, as I said, I have been going over the "Just... Jang Hyuk" blog, and I'm seeing some pictures I've never seen before, like these ones from SBS awards 2009 :)  The hair here is kinda similar to his hair in the Golden Disc awards, but what 10 years can do to a man, ha? :) That is, a man that lives his life right...

Just ... Jang Hyuk _zoi

Was he stress out more bc of language barrier or on character in general?

@Biology Lesson, I am simply speechless how he seem not to age at all. Someone here said (again, please excuse me I forgot who) that he looks the same to what he was ten years ago, and yet different. Very hard to pinpoint what it is. He has no wrinkles, has not gained (or lost) weight, definitely had no ps or botox, and yet the features are slightly sharper, more defined, more manly.

I actually think he has aged, but so well! :) I mean we know that his shyness is still there, as we can see it in some of his interviews, but now he has this added layer of confidence that only age and experience can bring, and it makes him so much more attractive! In Chuno he was good, now- he is amazing!

It's funny cause I'm seeing posts on twitter of girls who see him in TMWYS and they seem almost angry or offended that they find JH attractive even though he is more than 40 (they call him old, which is mind boggling to me. I guess when you are a teenager, 40 is old...)

And @dramafan33, I think I will push myself to learn more Korean, so when I meet him (in my dreams) I will talk to him rather than sing "Creep" with him. (everyone has her own preferences, you know :D). I think very few people can pull off singing Creep, it is so difficult while seemingly simple.

I am seriously considering learning Korean... Not for the expressed target of talking with JH, but to understand his interviews...

And guys, on the topic of kissing in TV in general, which is so fascinating for me , yesterday I was amusing myself rewatching my favourite kissing scene. Maybe I am slightly perverted, but to me this is the best kiss I have ever seen. There is nothing fake about it, we can literally see all. I somehow cannot imagine any of the Asian actors I know performing a kissing scene like that, let alone JH. Your thoughts?

You haven't seen R rated Korean movies, have you ?:lol: In those movies you will see Asian actors do much more than this kiss... Essentially, some those movies are close to being soft core porn, I'm not exaggerating. I'm posting here a vid I saw of glimpses of some of the scenes from "Penthouse elephant" JH's film (!) and you'll get a sense of what I mean, though there are movies with more than these scenes... But, notice- JH's scene is the only one that is not explicit. No tongue (damn it! ) and no nudity in this scene in the movie.
