Oh lordy, who doesn’t love this precious precocious boy? Yook Sung Jae is having a breakout year thanks to his second male lead turn in school drama Who Are You: School 2015, a nice reminder that it’s not always an automatic loss to play second fiddle when the role in question is juicier. I’m not sure Yook Sung Jae could have made Nam Joo Hyuk’s character any more thrilling if he played Han Yi An, but I’m still happy Yook Sung Jae created a fun and memorable Kong Tae Kwang.
While Nam Joo Hyuk has been scooping up drama castings since School 2015 wrapped, as a supporting character in Cheese in the Trap and the teen version of the male lead in Glamorous Temptation, lucky for fans Yook Sung Jae will also be joining another drama before 2015 ends. Yook Sung Jae has just been confirmed to play a detective in upcoming SBS Wed-Thurs drama The Village, joining Moon Geun Young, Kim Jae Wook, Shim Eun Kyung, and Jang Hee Jin. This is most excellent news! To celebrate, enjoy the pitch perfect just released pictorial of Yook Sung Jae for outdoorwear brand Black Yak. He makes me want to get outside and play.
