Aww, he's adorable, really. And I felt funny seeing his uncertainty that was visible from his words. As if with some words he had to convince even himself to something. But he seems to not have overpuffed ego, as Peggy said. That's good.

I just finished reading his interview. He's like a really interesting character. I found some of his answers pretty deep while others were just 'wtf?!' All in all, very adorable, yes. Especially the way he wants to stay in charge about the direction of his life. I really respect people who work in this industry who can say that and who actually live by it. :D

네. Exactly, I had the same impression as well. Some were just shallow, some were deep.
But at least he wasn't beating around the bushes and tell the stories that he wants to be seen as a serious actor with nothing to prop up his claims. He is on the good way to achieve it. He may not be brilliant, but he can be solid and good.

And I felt sorry when he said that he slept for 2 weeks after finishing filming Bad Guy. Damn, I love SBS.

Yep, how can they exhaust their actors and staff so much?! Taking into consideration how they work for hours and hours without proper breaks, still delivering solid performances is an amazing thing...

Gonna watch his next works for sure, he may not be the most talented or distinguished actor but he's alright...I also like his voice, though i wish he'd perform some original songs... would be nice if he could do his asian tour. such a sweet dream for a man in his later 20ies

Nice pics! He and Janice Man look really good together. The article you posted before said something about a special date-themed movie that'll be on the opaque site in 3 days. Guess it'll be a stylish little feature. Haha I love to hear him speak Japanese - at least I can understand part of it. Can't wait :D

Jae Wook has the neatest toes.

There is a clip somewhere when they were waiting for a setup in Bad Guys. He was joking around and hitting on Nam Gil and making him laugh. Then went right into a serious scene where he was grabbing GunWoo by the throat and really slapped him. CUT. and then he was hugging to apologise. These two guys are total friends and you can tell they are in synch. such fun to watch them.

OMG Ethlenn....I do not have toe fetish. I just like his shoes which showed his neat toes.

Well they looked neat to me and seemed to fit his whole persona. No deformities.

I think in some ways he does not care to wear lots of clothes when he is at home. Hence no shoes..Hence good shape to feet.

Gosh that was a revelation on just seeing one picture. 8)

Ahaha. I just didn't see it. Not with Goong and not with Antique.

The person who made the MV must have loved that thigh fondling. Ahahaha.
Well, Jae Wook's "gay" is so mesmerizing that even straight men wouldn't be put off by it.

See, some men may look good, but if that "signal" of sexiness doesn't shine from them, no use.
Jae Wook is reeking of sensuality. He's charming and has charisma that can burn a hole in you.

Oh God Oh God OH GOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!! *uncontrollable fangirl screams and bouncing up and down on the poor chair*

Kim Jae Wook joins "Mary Stayed Out All Night"

Someone give me oxygen! I think I'm dying! Either that, or I'm having an orgasm! Or both!
Jae Wook shi as the handsome guy? Damn it! Now I won't want her to end up with the hippie!

Hot dang, is Keun Suk in trouble now! We have a veeery talented actor playing his rival, who also happens to be sex on legs, a charming man with enough charisma to melt the iceberg that sank the Titanic.
How exactly will our Princess cope with that? I tell you, if he manages to make me root for him and not Jae Wook's character, he's going to earn back some serious respect from me cause that's tough to do!

Now, if you will excuse me, I need to go get some water since my throat is dry from the mute fangirl screams of utter and absolute joy. Yes, mute.
I have a cold and my throat is closed. Good thing, otherwise I would have woken up the entire floor. I sound like an 80-year-old drag queen.

Maybe it's not a good idea to have guys we like on our avatars and signatures, The Chaos. With that cool name and those pictures, I'm falling for you! :rofl:

It seems so far away now. XD I mean, don't get me wrong, I might have been disappointed on pretty much all levels by Keun Suk, but his acting hasn't yet disappointed me.
I'd watch this series anyway, but it would be a bit bittersweet. Now, we have Jae Wook, that lovely man, who will help me a lot. Ahaha. I can just turn to him when the "damn it" feeling hits.

And yes, crazy men are awesome. No wonder Ji Hwan has such an amazing body. He doesn't sit still much in his works. XD Love him! Ahahaha.

he would look cooler :wub:

about Ji Hwan did you see his Telecinema drama ep "Love is Blind" ??

I want to, I have it, but no subtitles yet. It's killing me. XD

As for Jae Wook, well, if he were the metal dude, they'd have to find an equally good guy for the rich boy.
I think he's perfect for the part. He has a very strong presence on screen and he will do it very well indeed.

I don't think he's gonna cut his precious, wavy, reflecting the sun perfectly hair. Not after his dead body!

But I'm pretty excited for Jaewook, he keeps busy, eh? After such strenuous work on "Bad Guy", now this...

Too bad his role isn't a music one as well. We get to hear the Gaysha sing hippie songs (which sounds awful btw), but not our Jae Wook.
Actually, considering he's a singer as well, the man hasn't mixed his careers. Unlike someone who can't stop taking music roles...
Jae Wook keeps them seperate, even if he's good at both. I'm guessing he might do one if a really good one comes up. Till then, her can rock like this.

Exactly, but according to the manhwa, the Perfect Guy sang few songs (or one), so...
Still, I really can't see how he would fit in this drama. Fangirls are all over with pink fluffy wings, and here comes Jaewook who in Bad Guy was nowhere near pink and fluffy...
Damn, now I'm waiting.

Plus, he doesn't behave abnormally on his FMs or concerts. Plus for him.

Ethlenn, this is Jae Wook we're talking about. I know these fangirls love Keun Suk, but do you think they'll be able to resist this perfect statue of a man?
They'll go nuts over him. Of course, I somehow feel safe with Jae Wook. I don't think he'll lose it like the Gaysha did just because some girls screamed.

I think they will. They will hate him if he end up with the girl, or if he does anyting to Mr. Hippie-Sissy.

Of course, if he looks cute, and minam and eatable, they will go kyaaa all over.
But as you, I don't think this will affect his brain in any way.

I'm pretty sure that if he goes anywhere near Mr. Hippie-Sissy, the fangirls' yaoi instincts will trigger and they'll find him even sexier. :glare:
It's the poor woman who'll get hell for playing a character that's wavering between two men. And of course, "hurting" their Sukkie... :rofl:

Jae Wook is a target for fangirls. Poor man will have even more kyaaing fans after this. I know it won't get to him, but it will be a bother to him.

ok, now i have a reason to watch this drama. after E-chan's pic spam and finding KJW too Hot to resist, i wanted to see him in something. my prayers have been answered. JKS have no chance in standing up him in his current condition :mrgreen:
i am wondering who is the main cast and which one is the main OTP now. :scratch:

Glad to see KJW seems to be a workaholic, he's the reason I'll watch Mary whatever...Glad he's focusing on acting more than on singing. I like his voice but I can't get into his Walrus stuff.

But i had to double check whether this is his or jihwan's thread after looking and Oririns and TheChaos' sigs and avas XD

Actually it is his 'Walrus stuff'' that keeps him down to earth and impervious to those fangirls.

There is no way my delicious Jae Wook will ever approach even the fringes of JK's behaviour. He is too mature and has the strongest sense of humour and I think he will eat them all alive without knowing he is doing it.

True true, a guy his age who admires Oasis and the Beatles and still dreams about going on a big tour with his band really is too down to earth to start changing into an anorexic gender-confused clown ;) Saw a nice report with him and his band-mates jamming and talking, forgot where, really adorable but still not really something I'd buy.
Glad he's working on his acting. He improved during Bad Guy and though he isn't the greatest actor, he's got the charisma and the determination to make it. Liked the first part of that web movie and I'm excited for the rest and the new drama :D

Still, in the point where we are, September 21st, 22:18, he's better than The Princess.

As Peggy said, I guess he will eat him alive without even princess noticing that.

He sure is, he's shown a raw but intense acting in Bad Guy. The Princess hasn't shown anything noteworthy since BV :P

Lord I have to go to bed it is 1.30am and I got started on the beginning of this Jae Wook thread and could not stop. I looked at all the photos and clicked on all the links and now my eyes are crossed and my heart is warm and satisfied. He really is worth ruining my vision and falling off the chair .
He does have the nicest toes Ethlenn.
However I have to say that no-one..NO-ONE has more of everything than Nam Gil. I have to look at that picture every day. His jacket is almost closed and his feet , tho bare, are perfectly set. He is just standing there... but all the rays of the charisma carrying all the testosterone, are clear and powerful. Just sheer sensual elegance at it's finest.

Gong Woo doesn't stand a chance with his bare torso and swim shorts.

You either have what it takes or you have to work at it.

Nam Gil just has to stand there.

I'm off to bed.

Don't know where it was, but I was present and my husband was around. Strange man was showing me a very large brooch made with Australian opals. He gave me impression that it was mine for the taking, but I surmised that this was a ploy for him to sell this thing to my husband who would give it to me. Well it was horrendous. There must have been a hundred gorgeous opals..all the same size clustered into a flat shape about five inches by seven. I don't know if they were Andamooka or Cooper Pedy but they were perfect. Just set in such an uninspired setting that was impossible to enjoy. Anyway I was trying to be polite in refusing but at the same time I was totally upset that my husband would even consider this as a gift. You see we both love opals and he used to cut and polish them for me. He made rings for me but alway elegant and not as vulgar as this brooch in the dream.
I woke up still wondering how I could refuse the man selling and drag my hysband off to give him a few sharp words. A dream so vivid it has stayed with me.

No idea what the inspiration cold be for all this. Got to be all those pretty toes. being displayed.

You have weird dreams, dear Peggy...

Opal is a nice stone but it looks the best left alone, not in any cluster, you are absolutely right. Some stones are like this.
And the funny fact about the opal is that it is thought to cause the misfortune, so opals are never given as the wedding presents. Plus, the change in this milky shade of an opal suggest that the owner is sick somewhere.
Yes, I love mythology around precious and semi-precious stones^^

The tale about opals is as follows.

Once it was mined it looked fiery and beautiful. Then it was given to Emperor or powerful person.Tthen given to the artisan to be cut and polished. Now the secret in opal is that there is moisture captured within which makes for the firey appearance. If it is polished just one more time than necessary all the fire blanks out and all that remains is a white pebble. If this happened the artisan would have his hands cut off or even his head. thus the opal was called the unlucky stone and no-one wanted anything to do with it.
It fell out of favour. However I love this stone and when it is carefully handled it will give you all it's fire and brilliance.

Ah, now I see it. There are lots of stories about unlucky stones. It's fascinating how people projected their fate on stones or just celestial bodies (and even now KNG hovers, heh). To think that some bubble of gas or rocky/gas planet has any impact on our life...
The same with stones: amethysts is for Pisces, Ruby is for Aries, bla bla... But it created a whole new world of mythologies and topos.

I think Cleopatra used to dissolve pearls in wine. Did that give her beauty or wisdom? I think she bathed in the milk of asses for her skin.

Some people think pearls are unlucky but I don't know why. I rather like them

Now I know why.
Pearl is born out of a tiny grain that gets inside the shell mollusk. Then inside, the shell produces the soft tissue. Pearl is born out of pain of the mollusk..
This is why it is the best not to give the pearl on wedding.

In legends, pearls were transformed tears of mermaids, so another unlucky provenience.

And yes, Cleopatra bathed in the asses milk and drank crushed pearls for her beauty and longevity.
She died like any other common Egyptian girl back then...

We're watching Coffee Prince again... Damn it... I have to gather my patience and watch Bad Guy. I hated every minute of the first 3-4 episodes I did watch, but I have to see Jae Wook's performance cause it seemed very interesting.

Wait, Jae Wook was in the Bad Guy???
Ahahaha... damn I need sleep badly..

But Coffee Prince was soo nice. When I watched this, I wondered, "hmm, this guy's Japanese is really good", but then I didn't know he was raised in Japan.
I like the scene in the last episode when he said something about the heavy atmosphere in the Cafe, and mindlessly Harim repeated the first word in Japanese, and then woke up:"Hm??". Gotta love Harim^^

I couldn't bare to watch Bad Guy for his sake. No way would I watch that abomination of a series, called "Marry me, Mary".

I really shudder to think of Jae Wook having to endure military life. He was in a sageuk some time ago and the martial life, even in a drama, was not his cup of tea.

Aaarrgh...! He really is gone. Into the Army. All very quietly and no fuss and did not have any send off with fans. Just silently slipped away...

I am going to pray for him and hope he will be OK Seems he is going into regular army life... tough stuff. Wish him well.
