What a gorgeous poster! Love the colors, love the pose, and love love love Joo Ji Hoon‘s playful grin-ish smile. I’m glad he’s back for good, every man deserves a second chance like he does. His drama comeback may prove a bit arduous and uphill for him (as you know how the big companies and stations work, if you’re lucky like JJH you’re good, but if you’re not, you end up being a leper), but at least he’s willing to give it a shot. And with his chops (evident from Mawang), there’s no way he’s going anywhere else… modeling perhaps? I’m just genuinely happy that he’s back to acting-dom. 🙂
He’s just been cast in a drama called “Five Fingers” about the life of a pianist or something along that line. But I’m not as intrigued, at least compared to his upcoming film “I Am King“. In the film he plays the to be titular character King Sejong, Grand Prince Chung Nyeong who flees the royal palace the night before his coronation ceremony to avoid becoming king. Enroute to freedom he encounters Deok Chil, a slave who looks exactly like him, which leads him to a brilliant idea which will change his life forever. The Prince and the Pauper SWITCH!
The premise already sounds funfunfun! JJH has showcased some very promising acting in the intense and comedic department (his roles in Mawang and Antique Bakery cannot be more different!). And with the stellar supporting cast comprising Byun Hee Bong (The Host), Baek Yoon Shik (Harvest Villa), Kim Suro (AGD), Honey Lee, you’re bound to have something watchable in this. In any case if the story doesn’t kill it, at least I’ll have some solid acting to compensate?

JJH already looks like he’s killing the role. I have a feeling we’re in for some major fun in here!
