I blame it on his drama choices rather than me being blind for not noticing the smexy hotness that is Park Kwang Hyun earlier. I’ve actually only seen him in a bit part in Swallow the Sun as well as the few episodes of Glowing She that I watched (where he was actually paired with So Yi Hyun) but neither experience really did him justice. He’s really making such an impact with a secondary character role as Park Shi Hoo‘s best friend (and shrink) Heo Dong Wook in Cheongdamdong Alice. He’s the straight man to Park Shi Hoo’s loony, but he has such sparkle and warmth in his eyes that it just sucks the viewer in. He’s funny and witty, but somehow also very sincere. He questions Seung Jo’s revenge plan, gives him advice on his love woes now, and is generally the best friend a guy can have. I lub him and am so happy that Seung Jo has him in his life. Secretary Moon is adorable as well, but the rock solid friendship of Seung Jo and Dong Wook is the only thing giving me any comfort going into the second half of CA poised now for Se Kyung to purposely behave towards Seung Jo as if he’s both her White Rabbit and her marry rich target. It sucks she can’t just come clean but that’s too risky and she somehow must be convincing herself that as long as she likes Seung Jo for real then it’s all good. I can see Dong Wook being the voice of reason and sanity in this drama (Se Kyung’s BFF Ah Jung clearly is not) and for that his character is much more vital to the narrative then simply as a hottie onscreen for me to drool over in between heart pumping scenes of the OTP falling in love. Park Kwang Hyun has been acting for a long time but he’s definitely gotten hotter with age, losing his baby fat from his youth and adding this veneer of mature manliness. I’m looking forward to his scenes in CA as much as I am any scene with Park Shi Hoo or Moon Geun Young. It’s a triple treat for me.
