Cha Seung Won is really popular and well-known in Taiwan amongst all the K-actors. It’s all thanks to City Hall‘s immense popularity, but he’s really made an effort to reach out to his fans there, visiting once a year for a fan meeting. Now he’s landed the cover of popular men’s magazine Men’s Uno (last month’s cover model was 2011’s IT actor Joseph Chang). Best Love finished airing there recently and was also quite well-received so his star continues to rise. During the interview with the magazine, when asked to share his idea of a best love, he replied that it was having a happy and complete family. For a man married twenty years now, that’s reassuring and sweet to hear.
These aren’t the best pictures I’ve seen him take, but at least he’s starting to shed his Dokko Jin persona more and more. I personally wish he could be Jo Gook forever, but I need to let the man continue to try new roles and dazzle me. Word on the street is that he’s reviewing a script for a Spring medical K-drama but hasn’t committed to it yet. After doing an action thriller and a super duper rom-com in 2011, I’m sure he’ll continue to diversify his acting portfolio in 2012 with whatever project he ends up picking.
