Just cos he’s so awesomely adorable and talented? And so damn versatile an actor you won’t believe it until you see him with your own eyes. I admit I’ve been temporarily occupied with Seung Gi and QIHM for the past few weeks, but I’m certainly not blind or oblivious to not have noticed this precious gem of a performer. I’ve not seen What’s Up (his debut drama), but did watch some of his singing clips to check him out (and yes, he’s a solid singer). But it’s his subtle acting in K2H which has drummed up my interest in him lately. And even more, after watching him tackle a totally different but amusing supporting character in Introduction To Architecture last night, my admiration for his versatility has increased by a 1000 fold. This man is no doubt this year’s breakout discovery – definitely an actor to look out for, more than deserving.
So I went on a YT searching spree of JJS (just as I always do when I’m interested in a guy, the usual), and ended up with these adorable videos/ads which made me laugh and giggle like a loony. In these blueLink vids (I think they’re car ads but I’m not 100% sure), JJS plays 2 characters likened to Eun Shi Kyung (K2H) and his character Napdeukki in Introduction To Architecture (the references are HILARIOUS!). If you’ve seen both drama and the film, you will get what I mean by the stark contrast between 2 characters. They’re so world wide apart different you might need some time getting use to.
But trust me, you will love him even more after watching these vids. And if you haven’t, you will.

JJS Interview Cut
I’m heading for a wild guess here, since I can’t fully grasp all the dialogues (if anyone’s kind enough to translate? Pretty please!! 🙂 ). In the first video, Eun Shi Kyung’s planning to take the girl of his dreams out, and knowing him (are we all watching K2H?), he’s the stiffest bot ever! So Napdeukki steps in as his advisor, and teaches him the ins and outs to dating. And thereafter, a series of fun and cute entails. The 2nd/3rd videos are mostly about automated control of the car itself and its functions, and heck I will just give it to the Koreans for their creativity and innovations. Talk about driving without a driver! o_0
We get to see 3 sides of JJS – himself, Eun Shi Kyung and Napdeukki. How brilliant is that?
Last but not least, a MUST SEE interview of JJS highlighting all his talents (I’m surprised!). It’s kinda old, but JJS’s just toooooo adorable in it. I laughed like a mad woman watching. Has Oh Man Seok too! 🙂
