Short and random swooning post.
Saw Ep 1 of Queen In Hyun’s Man, and it’s grabbing me attention pretty damn good so far. Definitely like it A LOT more than Rooftop Prince, it’s slicker, more quick-paced and isn’t too sugary cheesy cliche. Editing is somewhat dizzying and annoying, but plot and acting are palatable enough. I like that the time travel reveal is out in the front right away and we’re going back in time to see how it happened.
Plus, I get to see Ji Hyun Woo alternate between ancient times and the modern world, YUMMMM!~~
I’ve always liked Ji Hyun Woo as an actor despite his tendencies to stay with safe roles. He’s not so much an A-lister or a hallyu star, but has a very genuine innate quality that makes characters he plays charming and endearing. He can play annoying, condescending, obtrusive, flippant or even nicey complaisant, I’ll always find a way or a reason (not a legit one haha) to like him. Maybe it’s his adorably charming and attractive boyish smile. Maybe it’s how he carries his characters and their charms. Maybe it’s his tall lanky look which happens to be my type. I dunno, there’s a very pervading sense of je ne sais quoi about him. He doesn’t forces himself or his charms on you, he doesn’t try. But once you see him in action, you fall for him.
1 episode I’m already all over Boong Do. I think JHW looks might fine donning modern attire, but ohmy I think he looks even better in ancient garb! I already love how he carries his sageukness – full of aplomb and righteousness. When he’s serious, he exudes prodigious confidence and poise. But when he breaks into that trademark smile of his, I LITERALLY MELT. So beautiful. ♥ ♥ ♥
Yoo In Na is such a lucky girl, I envy her badly!
Tell me how can anyone not fall for a genuine SMILE like this one:
Looks very BTS off camera to me, and they already emit sizzling sweet chemistry together. <33
