I really can’t complain that Choi Jin Hyuk is everywhere these days thanks to his meteoric rise to stardom after toiling for years as the second or third male lead in K-dramas. I like but don’t love him, but his just released photo spread as a groom in the pages of Marie Claire Korea wedding edition is seriously like a chocolate covered carrot and me a bunny. Gimme gimme gimme! Good lord do I love a man in formal wear, and by jove this man looks phenomenal in a tux. I especially love that these pictures are all black and white and so old-school in poses and mood. When Choi Jin Hyuk first started his career, he went by his real name Kim Tae Ho, but a few years ago he changed his career name to Choi Jin Hyuk, right around the time he worked in It’s Okay, Daddy’s Girl with Moon Chae Won and Donghae. Asians can be quite superstitious with the auspiciousness of a name and I’ve personally known folks who legally changed their names at some point due to a fortune teller’s suggestion or just the thought that it could change their luck in life. For Choi Jin Hyuk, it clearly didn’t hurt since his career was on a pretty steady but slow rise after he changed his name, and then Gu Family Book with a secondary character of the Gumiho Daddy turned out to be the big break of a lifetime. I actually thought he deserved his big break after I Need Romance but it didn’t quite happen for him there. Now that he’s part of the sprawling cast for the highly anticipated Heirs, and playing an adult role and not quite needing to tussle with the rich high school kid characters of the rest of the cast, he might just get another chance to steal a bit of the spotlight. I didn’t love his character in GFB (Daddy Gumiho feel for a pretty girl on sight and got his immortal life screwed over) but I recall loving his character in INR. I’m also thrilled he gets his own love line with a favorite of mine Im Joo Eun, and I’m hoping their characters get married at the end of the drama so we can get the treat of seeing Choi Jin Hyuk wear a wedding tux in action.
