Kim Jae Wook has always been a very low key star and sometimes I have to fairly dig for information about him. Part of the reason is that he splits time between Korea and Japan, and also between acting and his indie band gig with Walrus. He wrapped up the tvN cable drama Who Are You two months ago and has been enjoying the well-earned downtime. He was the best character and performance in the drama, by a long mile, and maybe an ocean tossed in for good measure. He’s in the pages of the November edition of Japanese magazine 25 Ans and in the accompanying interview shed some light on his recent activities. He said the chance to play a ghost really intrigued him and he accepted the role the next day after he got the script, and filming for WAY commenced the following day. It was a tight schedule and he worked with the PD a lot to really understand what the role required. As much as he was thrown into the filming, his natural acting talent and charisma easily made up for the lack of advanced preparation. He mentioned that a new mini-album is in the works for Walrus, which gets me excited because I love watching him in MVs as well. When asked what he loves most about Japan and Korea, Kim Jae Wook loves the rows and rows of shiny vending machines in Japan, whereas in Korea he loves the banks of the Han River, playing baseball there with friends and then going for a beer afterwards. I did not know he played baseball. Cool beans! Kim Jae Wook revealed that he’s a new cat owner after his military service discharge and he enjoys taking his cat for a stroll along the Han river. Walking his cat, that is so very quirky Kim Jae Wook. I love this man so much and all that he brings to the screen in any role. Enjoy these gorgeous magazine pics and let’s start counting down the days until he picks another drama.
