It’s been decidedly quiet on the enlistment front these days but there have been plenty of murmurings about who is heading off to the army soon. Two of my guys are currently in the army and Yoo Seung Ho won’t be released until December while Song Joong Ki doesn’t come out until early 2015. A talented male actor is coming back soon and that’s Ji Hyun Woo. Anytime I hear his name it’s impossible not to think of Queen In Hyun’s Man. He enlisted shortly after that cable hit drama wrapped back in late Summer of 2012, but that alone wouldn’t have kept his name in the limelight as much as his very public and high-profile relationship with Yoo In Na. They co-starred in the drama and pretty much fell in love with the cameras rolling and the audience rooting for them. Their characters were super adorable and endearing and they had so much chemistry together they could bottle and sell in.
There hasn’t been that many openly acknowledged onset couplings so Ji Hyun Woo and Yoo In Na are definitely one of the most memorable. Last year there was Moon Geun Young and Kim Bum in Goddess of Fire and I wonder which onscreen pairing will turn reel into real this year in 2015. Yoo In Na and Ji Hyun Woo’s relationship was reportedly on the rocks late last years as tabloids speculated that she was ready to move on from a boyfriend in the army and her own rising star in dramas after doing The Best Lee Soon Shin. Yoo In Na has denied them breaking up and said the relationship is still ongoing. I like her well enough but I’m much more looking forward to Ji Hyun Woo’s return to acting. He’s been in army musicals after enlisting so his acting and singing skills are clearly not rusty. Since it’s been a drama rut lately with a bunch of dramas ending and the news ones not yet arrived, I highly recommend Queen In Hyun’s Man as a great drama to marathon and fall in love with an extraordinary leading man and experience a lovely love story. Check out a great MV below to get swept away.
