What more need I say about Jo Jung Seok. This has been a phenomenal two years for him, transitioning from stage to screen almost seamlessly. He was a memorable part of the What’s Up? ensemble, he was a scene stealer in the movie Introduction to Architecture, and we all agree he was perfectly perfect as the earnest Eun Shi Kyung in The King 2 Hearts. I’m finally pinpointing why I like him so much (doesn’t really require any reason, he’s just phenomenal a talent), but one reason is that he reminds me of Kang Ji Hwan. Both guys are trained stage and musical performers first and foremost, and both guys got their career breaks comparatively later than many of their counterparts. Better late than never is my motto, and I’m beyond thrilled Jo Jung Seok is finally getting recognition, Bringing some of his latest pictures for everyone’s collection.
still NOT watching ep 19 coz i do not want to see him die. i want him and Lee Yoon Ji in a drama together… just so i can see them smile at each other again. i so ship these two. can we please, please, pretty please???
i especially like the 1st pic…. OMG hawt!
he looks like boy next door.. XD
I KNEW I shouldn’t have scrolled down to read the comments. I haven’t watch episode 19 yet….My fault.
thank you 🙂 I’m actually dying here torn between Jo Jung Seok and Chun Jung Myung. Aww men in their 30s too hot and mature to handle. Which is your pick?
Must we pick? Let’s have both =3
uhm sound just about right Lets have BOTH xD
yes, it’s okay to be greedy at times like these 😉
I love him and his voice. He was wonderful in What’s Up and superb in K2H. Am looking forward to his next project. Swoon 🙂 .
Awesome actor! (I like the dog too!)
Why so sad JJS…TK2H ended…omo…
I know, that sad-face pic is heartbreaking! Wish I could make him feel all better. To “brighten the day”, I have to look at the pictures in reverse order. We love you, JJS and we want you to be happy! Haha, the pooch in the first pic seems to be saying “Back off… he’s MINE!”.
Kim Byung Gun and Eun Shi Kyung are both alive and well in my ♥… I look forward to seeing who else this awesome actor makes me dote on in the future.
SKyung…my open wound…
He looks constipated in that 1st GQ picture….why would they ever pick that one?
So adorable and so amazingly talented. Definitely a new favorite! (They just need to have him sing more…)
He left all of us all with such a wonderful feeling! He is one to look out for!!
JJS…you are awesome!!
He. is. so. so. so. so. cute. How can a grown-up man like him look so cute. (He reminds me of Chun Jung Myun here).
I think Jo Jeong Seok is in a way, kind of lucky? His transition from stage to screen isn’t supposed to be so tight (in terms of his screen works appearing one after another), after all What’s Up wasn’t meant for Dec 2011 broadcast to begin with. But because of all the problems with its broadcasts, it ended up with his screen work appearing one after another in front of the public and it has really helped in gaining general public awareness I guess.
But as with the case for all other musical actors-turned-screen actors (cue Eom Ki Joon), I never understand why TV production crews don’t make good use of their actor’s singing ability. Letting them sing OST songs instead of giving the songs to another singer to sing would totally be a bonus to the show.
This certainly brightened MY day, which has been spectacularly awful.
Thank you <3
Hugs, Laica~ I hope today is a better day for you.
Aww thank you! It is 🙂
Good– I’m glad to hear that! 😀
Yey! Thanks, Capt. Koala. Jo Jung Seok is adorable in the first pic; and hawttt in the third. Those are my favourites in this collection. I am so happy I have discovered this wonderful talent, and I am eagerly awaiting his next drama. Hope it is a musical or a romcom and he’s the lead! Please, dramagods!
wat a cute baby!
a very talented man…….
Thank you Ms Koala.
Thank you SO MUCH for the photos. Love love it as I was so down after ep 19.
OMG! Super cute!!! I hope he gets to be the LEAD in a drama soon!!!
wahhh so cute jo jung seok…his face is so innocent looking..sigh 🙂
he’ll go places…im so sure of it!!!
OMG! He is such a cutie! I haven’t watched epi 19 either, couldn’t bear to see him die…the pics and your recap were more than enough trauma for me. As I said, after I knew he made the ultimate sacrifice everything else was anticlimactic….but I still miss K2H, NOTHING else is holding my attention these days.
Thanks, so much for cheering me up, Ms. Koala!
Aww so cute ,,,
I want hug him in the 4th photo,, 🙂
Jo Jung Seok (or is Jo Jung Suk??? ahhh i dont know already)…. So cute. Too cute.
I couldn’t stop squealing when I came across this post. There’s just something about him. His adorable smile. His talent. Ahhh, coherence eludes me. My photo collection of him is steadily building at a creepy unhealthy fan girl rate. I might have a shrine of him soon but let’s not go there.
Anyways, why the hell did GQ only take 2 photos of him? </3 I wanted at least one shirtless one…..No wait, I shouldn't tell lies. I WANT MORE THAN ONE SHIRTLESS PHOTO OF THIS MAN. They said he lost 8kg for his Eun Shi Kyung role and weight-trained to build muscle right? This girl right here needs concrete proof. Evidence its all about the evidence.
oh *blushes* where’s my manners…. thank you ms.koala for giving us more adorableh photos of this man <3 🙂
Thanks for the pics! :))))
Oh man, this one http://i966.photobucket.com/albums/ae145/ockoala/King%202%20Hearts%202/jjsok1.jpg made my heart pinch and twist. Why so sad, JJS?
omo, why so cute! i can’t wait to see him in other projects.
thanks, Koala! 🙂
He’s fabulous in yet one more way. He either owns or posed with a French Bulldog!!! LURRRRRVE THEM!
Thanks for sharing these pics of my now most fav K-actor JJS…you certainly made my day 🙂
waah.. those puppy eyes… thanks u so much, this really brithen up my day…
love love love love this post. I was away on vacay and didn’t see this until now. Thanks for sharing! I definitely let out a squeal when I read the title.
He is very good looking. He ages well, too. Im going to keep an eye out for him.
