Veteran Stage Actor Kim Joo Hun Steals Scenes as Hyung to Park Bo Gum in tvN Drama Encounter

To me tvN Wed-Thurs drama Encounter (Boyfriend) is the drama that keeps on giving, like a Christmas tree that deposits a hidden present every time I shake it. I can devote a post to every scene stealer in a drama where the OTP is holding their own, such as cupid Manager/Driver Nam or put-upon Secretary Jang and of course Jang Seung Jo as the still in love with ex-wife second male lead. But this post is devoted to another breakout star from the drama Kim Joo Hun who plays the owners of the seafood restaurant and hyung to Park Bo Gum‘s sunshine male lead. From his permed mop of hair to facial hair, he caught my eye from the moment he showed up to catch up with Jin Hyun upon his return from Cuba and subsequently all his hilarious interactions with Secretary Jang and also Jin Hyuk’s matchmaking younger brother. Kim Joo Hun is a veteran stage actor with only a few dramas and movies but a long career on stage so it’s a treat to see him finally venture out and impress me with his charisma and acting ability. Moar please!

  1. Everyone stole the show except for the the 1D main leads and the 1D villains. My fav is the ex-husband, he seems to be the only one with some depth in character besides the other minor supporting characters in this drama.

  2. I actually checking all actors bio in EC just for curiosity like this guy, hye in, sec jang, because there’s many new face. Its suprising these actor just apperead in few drama. Really SHK and PBG are the only one that carry this drama. Not fav writer, unfamiliar sub actors, ost just so so. But still it reached 9%.

  3. Can’t we still hope the writer make sad story?? I didn’t want them end up together just hope ending like pretty noona buy me ramyun.

  4. I don’t understand how PO’s character can’t say that he doesn’t have a handsome face. I found him very pretty attractive. And I watch this drama only for the other characters, the main couple being boring (too staged for me, it lacks in natural)
