Some more picture from Marie Claire Magazine... scroll on the right to see all:wub::wub: His smile on the last picture is ..... aahhhhhhhh.... I just fainted :heart:

 

 

Hi glassnokamen, thanks for sharing this. This magazine is a good buy since in this July issue he talked about his experience filming for tvN’s upcoming “Criminal Minds.” I guess he had a good time filming this remake drama because of many actions scenes. Can't wait for July........ Looking forward to see this because he's in it. Again, I trust that he will deliver a stellar performance. I've seen some still cuts from the drama & he looks fierce here, looks so sharp..... . The pictures look all good. :tongue:

its quite widely known that LJG is beyond nice and approachable to his fans. but i would also like to point out that his fandom is exceptional in a lot of ways, which explains why he is always so nice

Something to brighten up the mood  Got this nice Japanese magazine with Joon Gi on the cover as well as the Japanese DVD for MLSHR, both with long and interesting interviews of the MLSHR cast.

I think i will never decide about wich scene i like better, the jail scene or the rain scene... as i couldn´t find a proper gif for the jail scene here is one from the rain scene...

Good nght chingus!!!!!

All gifs and pictures credit to owners

i wonder which scene  Hae Soo fell in love with Wang So. was it the part when HS was thrown into jail or was it when Taejo sent WS to be ambassador and WS left with HS hair pin with HS wondering why she didnt really want to let him go.

They are copper! :)  :tongue:  They so remind me of OP (Ocean Pacific) shorts that were huge in the 80s and tried to make a comeback in the early 2000s.  I'm the rare female that WANTs to see men's legs again, not just those long basketball shorts all the time.  Socks...maybe not so much.  :rolleyes:  I saw a pic of Key from SHINee wearing these exact same copper KimSeoryong Homme shorts, but now I cannot find it.  

 

:D :D :D :D :D you are right!!!! But I was on the beach when I saw this photo and the light it made me look like gold :D :D :D :D :D

I like to see man legs too, actually I love man legs :wub: But I don't really like that color... and that outfit :/ I know that for most of you everything on JG is good, but really... I don't like this kind of outfit :D

And don't try to make fool of us... you love socks.... specially the ones with JG printed on :tongue::tongue::tongue::tongue::tongue::tongue:

Lee Jun Ki talks about playing a special forces agent in Korean remake of 'Criminal Minds'

http://www.allkpop.com/article/2017/06/lee-jun-ki-talks-about-playing-a-special-forces-agent-in-korean-remake-of-criminal-minds

Hmmmm....let's talk about this!  What does JG mean?  Dynamic means the character is definitely going to go through changes/growth but I have felt almost all the characters he has portrayed so far do that exact thing. They almost have dual personalities.  Does he mean that Hyun Joon is a refreshing role to play? He is enjoying the dynamic of this character and where it is taking him?  Have the other roles not been as easy to portray as this one? Does he have more freedom to be his own actor in this series?

Or maybe is referred to action scene? Maybe is because Hyun Joon is a man of action and not a reflessive ones. Also he's a modern character and maybe he's "similar" in the way of thinking at JG. He said also that "he's a living, breathing being"... what does it means?

@violina and   @glassnokamen thank you so much for the marie claire video and new pictures... LJG smile is heaven! :blush:I also think he's talking about action scenes... specially since so far they've been filming action scenes :D wich i looooove B) anyway he's saying he's gonna surprise us... every character played by him is a gem, so i have high expectations. can't wait. this waiting is killing me!!!!

@antoniaclamens love your my girl gifs:wub:

@pixelsticks Could be he's refering to the actions scenes.But when i read this, this immediately made me think of what he said in an interview back in 2013:

Q: What do you think of drama or movie sequels? If there are plans for a sequel to any of your previous works, is there a show or a role that you will want to do?
JG: Up till now, I think all my works have been great so far, but I personally would like to reprise my role of Lee Soo Hyun in “Time Between Dog and Wolf” again. I have an attachment for that character, such that I sometimes think he is still living his life somewhere out there. Wouldn’t it be interesting to find out what happened to Lee Soo Hyun? It is also fun to imagine a sequel to “Iljimae”!

If to date he is still attached to TBDW character, then it explains why he was drawn and is having fun with playing the new role in Criminal Minds which is all kinds of awesome, need i say more. ok i do so I will continue posting Q and A but in a second post to not make this post too long to read.

Also unrelated but i cant help but be proud when i read this over and over again?:

Spoiler

 

Q:There are actors in Korea who wish to venture into Hollywood, and there are even some who have starred in Hollywood films. Do you have any hopes or plans to go to Hollywood?
 JG: If I were to describe the attraction of Hollywood in one sentence, wouldn’t it be “the dream of every actor”?  And also the fact that a Hollywood film will be seen by audiences all over the world. I think that is a very happy thing. That’s why, if I have the chance one day, I want to take on the challenge to star in a Hollywood film. However, a lot of preparation is required for this to happen, so it is still early days for me yet. If I cannot understand their culture and expressions accurately, it will be difficult for the audience to identify with me. If that day ever comes, I want to fly to Hollywood with my fans and hold a party to celebrate. Till that day comes, please give me lots of support. I believe such a day will come!

Boy did that day come, just four years later and the whole world especially the ones who are avid kdrama fans know his name:).But you lied JG oppa you didnt take your fans and hold a party to celebrate.You hid the good news until Milla outed you on instagram that you were gonaa be part of resident evil..nappeun namja..hahahaha.It seems he wasnt confident that he is still hallyu star at the time this interview was conducted.I dont blame him because he starred in a non conventional drama and it had low domestic ratings.

@pixelsticksAnother interesting JG Q and A session,that I thought might explain the mysterious way, JG has described how he feels about his latest role, and kind of answers what i think you are asking was done last year(2016) as Ryeo was filming:

Q: In Moon Lovers, you play a beast-like person who has been abandoned. A man who will become king in the future. There are also twists and two faces to him. Why does Lee Joon Gi always play a character in such big dramas?
JG:Fortunately, I’ve done many sageuks, and I usually play characters who show growth or stir up the surroundings (this is the definiton of dynamic isnt it?).I have the desire to portray different kinds of people. This is a basic desire that an actor should have. I’ve felt the excitement of being able to portray characters without any restrictions on expression in the fantasy dramas that I’ve acted in thus far. I am thrilled when I encounter people who are able to relate to the characters I play.

I also think @glassnokamen might have a point and is right.look what he says here?:

Q:You also thought it was important to show a variety of things in a single piece of work. Just like how a show may be a sageuk but also a melodrama and fantasy drama at the same time. Most are not limited to just one kind of genre. 
JG: I was always such a greedy person; I had a greed of having to show a variety of things. Because I like physical action, I mostly played characters that need to possess complex emotions even when there are many action scenes. But audiences also seem to get tired if I try to portray too many things. They will get tired of course.

For all the lurkers or JG fan newbies(:))in the forum;Alot of people comment on JG articles about this and nag and complain, here is the answer to this forever question:

Why do you like action so much?
JG: I think of action as one of my speciality and strengths. But for how long will I be able to use my body like that? A time will come when I won’t be able to do so even if I wanted to. I want to work hard and do more action when I’m still able use my body well. I often receive offers for such projects too.

Does this answer your question:

Q:Do you have any thoughts of wanting to play monotonous roles now?
JG: I do wish for that these days. I no longer have that desire to show many things (to audiences). If I’ve been playing dynamic and powerful characters so far, I now want to play a character that is dull with more time to breathe. I want to try becoming a character that plays with chemistry. A role that audiences will stay still and observe because it is profound.

I think the part where he talks about a character that plays with chemistry and a role that people will stay still and observe.He manage to achieve it with Wang So.But the part where he says he want to play a character that is "dull"(psst^_^!he is being humble here, dull and lee jun ki dont belong in the same sentence or his acting) with more time to breathe is what has motivated him to choose his next role(Hyun Joon).

I feel like I made myself a JG spokeswoman or brain interpreter when I honestly dont have a clue too but just take it as my guesswork.

@violina Thank you very very much for this interesting collection of Q&A. You are really a great font of information :):) I knew some of those reply, while I never read about that "I no longer have that desire to show many things (to audiences). If I’ve been playing dynamic and powerful characters so far, I now want to play a character that is dull with more time to breathe. I want to try becoming a character that plays with chemistry. A role that audiences will stay still and observe because it is profound." And it's very interesting too that he has changing his mind in some way.

Some interesting quotes in those articles. Thanks for sharing!  I think JG does like to play the action role (especially when he can still do it) but I do think he wants to also play a role where his character's intentions and motivations are not out in the open.  A complex character that gets revealed in little bits and keeps the audience on their toes.  But usually this character has some major moral flaws and will his fanbase accept him playing that type of character? Maybe in his 40s.  

And damn JG for not flying to Hollywood to let me attend a party!!  :wink:  But seriously,  I want to see him in the USofA....sometime.  With socks in tow!

@parkr1n thank you for the link to the Vogue article!  I cannot translate but put it through Google Translate.  It's not the clearest to understand...but this portion stood out to me.

Quote

Professor Kim Hyun-jun was in charge. I read the description of the character, but it did not match the character in the original . 
It is a character that is not in the original work. Unlike other members of the special investigation team called NCI, Hyun Jun is a friend who develops into a profiler. It is a growing character in many works, and viewers will be able to understand all the members through Hyun Jun.

Hmmmm...so will the show be written in the perspective of Hyun Joon?  Will his character be the one who voices over/observes the team dynamic, and talks about the crime...ala Mandy Patinkin role?

Quote

Rather, I am too bored when I return to Lee Jun Ki. Because I do not like that time, I do a fan meeting even when there is no work, and I give out an album and try various things. I would like to make it a time to fill the emotional source as an actor rather than to live in vacancies inevitably. I want to continue to create something and get stimulation there.

The man doesn't like to sit still and just chill.  I am glad he likes and wants to create.  It is what fulfills him.

Hi leesopark, I've been wanting to watch this C-movie of LJK but, too bad that rarely this kind of movie is shown here in my side. I wonder if the DVD copy is available now in the market, huh? :tongue:

Then I am crazy too.  I really couldn't place a specific scene myself either...except when she went to tend to his arrow wound.  Or actually when he had to leave for 2 years and she was pining by the water...maybe then. Speaking of letting a character breathe, I think they did kind of short change HaeSoo in terms of her depth.  SO I cannot WAIT for Hyun Joon/Hyun Jun.  Where are the previews tVN?  These Bride ones are great so let's put out the CM ones!!!

JG's IG posted pics again.  

Gun emoji from the beginning and then the hashtags have been added within the first 30 minutes while I was surfing around. Do we need to teach him #criminalmindskorea #hyunjun #hyunjoon?
