This man simply does not rest for a single minute. One of the hardest working, and most talented, actors in Korea is undoubtedly Jang Hyuk. The breadth and depth of his acting resume is a sight to behold. Not every project works, but he always stays on top of the fray and comes out teflon hard. While I didn’t like Midas (both his character and the overall plot), I’m excited about Hyuk’s next drama, the upcoming sageuk Tree with Deep Roots with Shin Se Kyung. Chuno is still my favorite Hyuk performance while Thank You is my favorite drama of his.
After wrapping Midas, Hyuk has been keeping busy with appearances on Running Man. He also took a trip to Osaka to film a fashion and culture hour-long personal video documentary. Hyuk discussed that Osaka reminds him of Busan, and it’s no secret Hyuk is the best and most glorious acting son to come out of that city. I love the pictures taken of Hyun on the Osaka trip, since Osaka is one of my favorite cities and one of the many places where I spent a Summer as a kid. Judging from these stills, Hyuk is a lover of classic manga. I knew I loved this man for a reason. He’s this hot and a geek? Swoon.
