'Dragon club' Five different types five men, five colored charms attracted the customers.


KBS 2TV 'Dragon Club - Childish Bromance' is a program that depicts the travel of five people who have been friends for twenty years.. The members of 'Dragon Club' finally met their customers in the previous episodes 4 and 5.  Let's look at the attractiveness of each of the five different men who displayed different types of charms in front of their customers.


▶ Comfortable like a brother 

Kim Jong Kook, the only unmarried man among the 5 Dragon club members, always treated each customers as if they were his friends. Kim Jong Kook showed endless effort to sympathize with the story of the guests as well as simple talk. His efforts played a crucial role in keeping the overall flow of dialogue intact. Also, being single allowed him to  say things that make the customers laugh and quickly alleviate the awkwardness.


▶ Awkward like the uncle next door 

Jang Hyuk, who had a lot to talk when he was among his friends, had a sudden loss of speech in front of strangers. Especially when a female guest came. Because it was awkward, he chose to serve her alcohol and food. When everyone talked comfortably, Jang Hyuk used the honorific word instead. Nevertheless, his dorky charm that cannot be concealed still brought a big smile to the customers.


▶ Just like my dad 

Cha Tae-hyun welcomed the guests more than anyone else and chatted with them all the way and raised the atmosphere from the beginning. The distinctive bright energy and the sense of humor, which was neither too much nor too little, made guests comfortable. He  joked with strangers as if they are his friends, and his mischievousness naturally broke the walls between the members and the guests and added to the intimacy.


▶ Cool as a manager 

Hong Kyung-min talked with guests, cooked, sang songs, and played various roles. He also played a strong mentor role, giving his sincere encouragement the guests who are soon entering into the workforce. He was also elected as the one whom the guest would like most to have as a manager.


▶ Affectionate like a mother

Hong Kyung-in was also very affectionate to the guests. While the rest of the friends talked to the guests, the main chef Hong Kyung-in made the dishes silently. He carefully made sure that the customized dishes suited not only the taste of the members but also the taste of the guests. To the members and the guests, he was a more of a listener rather than one who likes to talk.


Although the five friends have different personalities,  they all treated their guests with sincerity and try their best. The warmth of the five friends pushed from front to the back is loved by both the guests and the viewers with good synergy.


On the other hand, the pleasant romance trip of 'Dragon Club - Childish Bromance' of 20 years' friends is broadcasted on KBS 2TV every Tuesday night at 11 o'clock.

Jang Hyuk also pointed out that "In acting, our current age is the most worrisome one", you need to be different from others and it is easy to become lazy. Jang Hyuk said, "At this age, I have already tried acting, variety, almost anything. It is easy to get stereotyped subconsciously" he added.


Kim Jong-kook said, “People in this career need to have more weapons than others”, agreeing on the tough competition within the entertainment circle.

Good news for the people who are sad because Dragon Club is going to end soon. We still have  some hope. I came across this interview of Kim Jong Kook few days ago but forgot to post it here.

Acoording to him Dragon Club is planning to have a next trip too though they don't know when will it happen. They can even go to Singapore.:tongue: I love their idea of road trip too.

KJK can speak English quiet well. It would be good if he could teach to Hyukie too. :lol:

Yes indeed. This variety show is good! Most importantly, the bromance. 

I'm a fan of Jang Hyuk. Watched his drama(s). He always delivered his roles superbly, be it modern, romance, thriller, ancient or whatever. He gives the impression that he's a serious/cool guy but after you watched this, you change your mind. Despite the popularity over the years, he remains humble, adorable & down to earth. 

What touched me most is, he loves his wife very much. You can sense it from his conversation. He's been with her since 2002, married in 2008, have 3 children. 

Having been in the entertainment industry for 20 years, I am almost certain he knows what to do & what not to do else how do you keep a 16 year old relationship intact...? I just like the way he speaks of his wife. He misses her even when he's on this trip. 

No matter how much chemistry he has with this actress or that actress in this drama or that drama, it's just a drama & it's scripted. I must remind myself not to be carried away. JH has a wife whom he loves very much. Hahaha....!!
