With the conclusion of tvN drama Super Daddy Yul, it lead me to once again ponder the terrible stroke of luck that keeps befalling Lee Dong Gun‘s acting career. I couldn’t even get past the first episode of the drama and by all accounts it never got any better. I’m a fan of Lee Dong Gun from the dramas where he played the second male lead, in Sang Doo Let’s Go to School and even earlier in Ruler of Your Own World.
For his headlining dramas, there haven’t been a single one in ten plus years that I’ve liked. Some may find Sweet 18 cute but it was cloying for me, and When it’s at Night is really choppy and inconsistent despite the great OTP chemistry. The less said about Marry Him If You Dare the better, and now with Super Daddy Yul it’s like the poor man just can’t catch a break. I still adore him but goodness can some long overdue karma finally shine down on this gorgeous talented man.
Above are news shots of Lee Dong Gun from earlier this year, and below are the latest snaps of him attending the drama wrap party for Super Daddy Yul. Better luck next time is usually what I would say to faves of mine coming out from a stinker project, with Lee Dong Gun I think I need to go to the drama temple for some exorcism incense, how else to explain this ill-fated streak. Even a gambler up against a house stacked deck in Vegas would have won at least one hand by now.
