Kim Hyun Joong‘s upcoming K-drama City Conquest has been filming without being picked up by a network or given a time slot yet, but I don’t think it has much to worry about. I’m more concerned about how it’ll all turn out – the ideal would be to emulate City Hunter, and the worst case scenario would be to become A Man Called God. I remained casually fascinated by this drama because, dude, its Kim Hyun Joong trying out his Boys Before Flowers co-star Lee Min Ho‘s role choices for a change, as opposed to sticking with the cool, calm, and collected handsome flower boy image he held in BOF and Playful Kiss. Hyun Joong understandably gets raked through the coals for his limited acting range, and while I’m fine with it since I think he works in certain capacities, I’m curious to see if changing up his roles may be the breakthrough he needs. I doubt he’ll ever be a thespian, but he has nowhere to go but up. The latest stills from CC leave me ambivalent – love the way Hyun Joong and Jung Yumi look, but his hairstyle for this drama continues to look more and more hideous. I hope his character has a motorcyle accident and it gets singed off.
