Good Friends and K-ent Rising Male Drama Leads Ji Soo and Nam Joo Hyuk Vogue it Up After 2017 MAMA

A good bromance is even better when it consistently feeds goodies to fans. Rising young Korean actors Ji Soo and Nam Joo Hyuk are doing their best to walk in the two decades long bromance friendship steps of top Korean movie stars Jung Woo Sung and Lee Jung Jae, showcasing a guy friendship whilst supporting each other’s burgeoning careers. They recently attended the 2017 Mnet Asian Music Awards but I was more interested in their cute SNS updates that is adorable for the purposely posing. It’s insane how long their legs are, my eyes are blinded from the legs that go on forever. Their friendship predated acting as brother in Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Ryeo as 13 and 14, respectively, and both fared well enough to get out of that hot mess unscathed, and likely got to hang out on set which makes it worthwhile. Nam Joo Hyuk also has a totally failed outing with Bride of the Water God behind him but I think he can do better and look forward to both boys continued development as K-drama leads of this current 20-something generation.

  1. Nam Joo Hyuk is such a shitty actor oh my God. I simply can’t stand his acting. He was so terrible in Bride of the Water God that he single handedly ruined. How on earth could he get that lead role and Lim Ju Hwan got relegated to play a second fiddle to him? Why does he keep being so shameless and still taking major roles when he doesn’t have the skills to back him up? If he were actually professional, he’d at least attend some acting schools or practice his acting with a mentor. I guess he must be thinking that his looks (he looks like a little boy, nowhere near Jung Woo Sung level) good with model proportions and his acting must be good enough lmao. YG needs to stop being shameless too and they have got to stop shoving him everywhere and ruining the dramas he is in. Ji Soo is way better looking and has better acting skills, although SWDBS wasn’t his best role really.

    • I agree that Nam Joo Hyuk really need to take on more supporting roles before being too ambitious to headline a drama. He still has a long way to go to deserve a leading man status. But BOTWG itself is a shitty drama and Shin Se Kyung, being a long-time actress is terrible in her own rights too… So it’s fair to say, NJH not the one who single handedly ruined BOTWG. I am excited over Ji Soo new foray in “Bad Guy”. I find him having more range than bestie NJH and has higher tendency to select meatier roles. I believe he will go further with his career than NJH.

      • hahaha… if you have not started, don’t even bother… total waste of time!! SSK is so so bad… the only worthwhile person to watch is IJH who is more qualified to be the Water God with his great visuals and he is very tall too… imho… lol…

  2. Nam Joo Hyuk isnt that good actor. He can do rom&com at least. But Shin Se Kyung was so bad and bland there and in every other her roles.
