Lee Joon Gi 이준기 Current Drama: The Flower of Evil

Recommended Posts

I remember I read somewhere that him being a brilliant yet underrated actor is because he is so consistently good (Ok yes, now I remember, the blogger of A Koala's Playground mentioned this).

So, I view his scenario the same as Leonardo Di Caprio. He has been long underrated despite that he gave out powerful performance each and everytime because people never watched any bad performance from him to do any comparison and to elevate a certain performance as great. It's unlike Matthew McConoughey whom is more of a mediocre actor to begin with and once he pulled one great performance, everyone seems to take notice.

That's the same with Jun Ki. His projects may not do well but his performance never let us down, in fact always mind-blowingly good. Unlike some other K-actors, they may pull out one good performance after a number of forgettable ones, and so the public has the medium to compare with and therefore elevating that performance as great.

Though I was hoping that MLSHR will become the platform for him to shine in SK and yet did not turn out that way (though he is getting more popular outside SK now), I still have faith that he will rise again with a really good project soon. Just continue praying for his success.

 

Hi sukbin, I couldn't agree with you more -  It's really personal preference but the plot for this drama is fun so, IDK why it seems that it doesn’t pass to Koreans/native’s taste. I have no idea why though. Nothing is wrong with this drama. The storyline is good, at least for me. I still believe that Lee Jun Ki has an eye for picking dramas. Sigh..... If you're hitting 6.2% on public broadcast, that's about a 0.6% on cable, which basically means no one's watching it. The story is getting more interesting, though. Lee jun ki is literally amazing. Poor Kang Ha neul & Lee Jun Ki – especially LJK, he is carrying hard. It’s fine, LJK - it doesn’t matter since you like what you’re doing. I hope he doesn’t get discourage by the ratings. :P

Hi All, I'm new here. Just wanna express my gratefulness and appreciation that I'm able to watch Lee Joon Gi's excellent performance in Ryeo. I will go on to visit his previous projects. (I've only watch oh my girl and King and the Clown like 10 years ago...sorry Mr Lee....)

He's such a powerful actor!!!! Just knew he filmed in Hollywood's blockbuster too, wow!!! Wish he will have more great work in the future!

Hi @willenette I think he should be ok despite the low domestic rating of MLSHR and am glad to mention that the moment the drama showcased more LJK's screentime, the public took more interest. He just posted a thank you message on his IG for the Youku viewership reaching 1 billion mark which means, he is taking notice of the support that he is receiving outside SK. And the rise of his IG followers which is short of 200K to reach 1 million when MLSHR has only been broadcast up to episode 9. It is still a win for him, he has more fans outside SK now and that is a good sign.

@vyshiva Thanks for sharing. I love the side by side comparison. Same actor, same pose, same eyes yet transpiring totally polar opposite different aura. Only the eyes doing the talking. That's the testament of a brilliant actor and that is our dear LJK. :heart: So much respect for him.

Hi yorobun,

Been a LJG fan since Iljimae. And i always follow his activities and drama.

Btw, i want to share something about my feelings towards our oppa. 

I watched JG Style back in 2012. I forgot which episode, but i remembered, while he was being make up and put on his Satto attire, he said something about his role on many of his sageuk dramas. He said that he started playing sageuk as a commoner (Gonggil - King and a clown), then continue as a long lost crown prince's son/ Bandit (Iljimae), and continue to be a magistrate (Arang and the Magistrate). Back then he said, he will be on his way to act as a king. And 4 years later, here we are now, watching LJG's Scarlet heart Ryeo. And he is playing Wang So who will be future King Gwangjong. 

And when i watched the last 10 minutes scene SHR eps 8, and saw LJG wearing King's robe, and has those evil and powerful gaze, i can't help but my eyes fill with tears. OUR OPPA IS NOW A KING. 

I know it's somewhat overreacting, but hey, i'm a proud fan. Proud with his achievement. 

Hope he doesn't affected by the SK's low ratings. Because, with or without those ratings, he gain a lot of recognition and new fans since SHR. 

Way to go, oppa.

@sooji28  The Ratings,,,,meh.....simply evidence of the Umbrella Corporation at work  in an attempt to find a cure for TOSS.  (teenage obsessed star syndrome)  Unfortunately the side effect was they all became zombies.

I wish to point something out about my previous post on the Iljimae Blu-ray set. I thought the episodes would have English subtitles, but now I found out that it won't. Only the commentary/interview MAY be subbed if enough copies are pre-ordered. With less than 10 days left, I don't think it's going to happen at this point. At any rate, if you have placed your order believing that it would have English subtitles, you might want to cancel it since it won't be subbed. It will be automatically canceled and your money refunded if the pre-order sale doesn't reach its target by the end of this month.

On the other hand, Korean fans of MLSHR are starting to organize a team to request for it to be released on DVD/Blu-ray with all the deleted scenes. This one should include English subs for the episodes and maybe if enough interest is shown early on, we may be able to ask for the special features to be subbed as well. Please pray that this will happen so that we can see all the deleted scenes of Wang So!

Hi sukbin ye, I saw that - he thanked fans after the drama surpasses 1-B views on C-streaming site, Youku in total for all the episodes aired so far. He wrote in English as the caption, “Thank you 1 billion angels!! Love you all.” - NICE. We know that Youku is the largest streaming site in Asia. :P

I wish he dates someone, and find love and get married before 40.... I've been shipping him with LYB since SWWTN :) I found this article below, he didn't have much dating scandals in the past....

Hi Mona Ys, I wish the same thing, too - I hope he could find someone who could take care of him & love him more soon. And looking forward to that time when it happens. I wish him happiness always. :P

Actor Lee Joon-gi took to the V app to share some behind-the-scenes footage of the SBS period drama “Scarlet Heart: Ryeo” on Wednesday.

The short clip shows Lee at the set of the palace, alongside actors Kang Ha-neul and Nam Joo-hyuk, as they film a pivotal scene in the drama.

Lee is also seen having his makeup done to create a scar that his character has. He also jokes around with Kang and Nam as they wait between scenes.

Lee’s impressive acting skills come though as he transforms into his character, Prince Wang So.

Hi everyone,

I am a newbie in this forum. Nice to meet you :)

I am a new fans of Lee Joon Gi and i really like his new drama Scarlet Heart: Ryeo. Honestly, i like him because of his acting in this drama and since then i continuously searched about him (his previous dramas, movies). He really is a great actor which successfully to make us love every character that he played and keen to always watch his drama. It is happens with the Scarlet Heart: Ryeo. His role in this drama is awesome and i don't think other actor would not able to portray the 4th Prince Wang So as well as him. Although in the early episode he didn't appear as long as Kang Ha Neul but i hope in the next episode he will get more scenes as he is the main character in this drama. After the last 2 episode (episode 8 and 9) i really can't wait to watch the rest of the episode. :blush:

Still no subs yet? In ur language or english?

Subs are showing so late for some time. No idea why. 

And in English of course. Translating them into my language is my job actually. ;)

He said it will be his last saeguk in his early thirties so next year when he's 35 he'll do modern drama and the next he can come back to saeguks. Don't worry chingu! :)

Since I gave up keeping up with the drama thread I'll focus here, ok? I want to add my 5 cents about the last scene of ep. 9 - the kiss. I know there are a lot of ppl who seem to hate the idea that Wang So actually kissed the girl. Since it's pointless to explain his behaviour one more time (someone explained that really good so I don't have to I think) - the whole thing is ridiculous. A man kissing a girl because he misunderstood her? Is that so bad? I compared that with scene of chooing perfect prince for general's daughter - no one asks the prince, the king and the general just choose among princes as if they were picking perfect chicken for dinner. The chosen one has to just come to the wedding nicely dressed and say "yes" - no choice, no discussion. That's far more upsetting thing to me than simple kiss that will be (I'm sure) explained between Hae Soo and Wang So in few seconds or at least Wang So will realize his fault. So... comparing the kiss scene and the scene of chosing prince - the whole thing about the kiss is just ridiculous.

LJG is turning me into a cyber stalker lol.  i keep trying to find news about him and watch clips about him on YT.  I like his acting back in the days but MLSHR is just the icing on the cake.  He switched on the fangirl mode in me that has been dormant for a few years now.  I think to relieve my anticipation for MLSHR's episodes next week, I'll rewatch all his drama again just to feast my eyes.

I'm also grateful that he's active in posting photos in his instagram.  he's just too darn beautiful especially in that long hair.  maybe he realises it too because he did say during an interview he likes doing sageuk because of the costume if i'm not mistaken. oh well, bring it on LJG.  Can't wait for your next drama.
