It’s been sooooooo long since Jo Hyun Jae was on my screen in a project worth watching. Not since 49 Days back in 2011, with his memorable turn as the straight man in a drama filled with fantasy elements and selfish people behaving badly. Since then he was in Ad Genius Lee Tae Bak and King’s Daughter Soo Baek Hyang, neither of which I watched beyond the first episodes. Unlike some of his near age acting colleagues, his star really hasn’t risen since leaving military service when prior he was headline long prime time sageuks all on his lone.
I hope this new BNT International pictorial means Jo Hyun Jae has an upcoming Korean project in the works, whether drama or movie, though I much prefer drama because he’s one of those actors that take time to grow into a role. For the BNT spread, Jo Hyun Jae is decked out in black, white, and blue, with the various color themes all having its own distinct vibe. My favorite is the all black set with Jo Hyun Jae rocking the European cut sequin-encrusted suit jacket and pants combo, looking way hotter than I’ve seen from him in years. Come back soon, my boy!
