I know that this post will get the usual Kim Hyun Joong fangirls ready to pounce in defense of their beleaguered favorite star but I was once a mild fan in the Playful Kiss days and now genuine wonder what value he adds to the great K-ent entertainment space. His idol SS501 days are long gone and the young guns like BTS are blazing new trails. In variety he has a seemingly 4D charm but that’s impossible to square away with what information has been released due to his domestic violence and baby momma scandal. As an actor it was his weakest talent but now seems to be the only viable avenue to return to his entertainment career and he seems bent on doing so even when the majority of the public would prefer never to see him onscreen again. This week he attended the press conference for cable drama That Time When Time Stops costarring Ahn Ji Hyun and In Kyo Jin and honestly the whole shebang looks awkward as heck. I’m ready for the ratings to be dismal if only to deter other productions from casting him, unless it does well on rubbernecking potential.
