The Fangirl Verdict

Completely biased reviews and fangirling

Head Over Heels for: Kim Woo Bin

367 Comments

Many of you already know all about my fangirl love for Gong Yoo, and my pretty robust crush on Jang Hyuk. Those were the two big k-loves in my k-life for quite a nice long while, both of them occupying a sizable chunk of my fangirl heart and my fangirl mind.

And then one day – like a bolt out of the blue – Kim Woo Bin came and snuck up on me and now I’m officially head over heels in love with Woobie. ❤ I didn’t even see it coming, to be honest (sneaky Woobie).

So today I’m gonna tell y’all ALL about how I fell in love with Woobie.. Come squee, ogle & swoon with me!

Encounter 1: A Gentleman’s Dignity

The first time I set eyes on Kim Woo Bin was when I decided to check out A Gentleman’s Dignity.

After a somewhat rough and reluctant start, I found a way to enjoy the show, but didn’t take a whole lotta notice of Kim Woo Bin.

I mean, look at the poster featuring the ensemble cast. Kim Woo Bin’s not even in it, even though fellow supporting actor Lee Jong Hyun gets a spot in the lineup. That already tells you that his role is, well, really not very big.

I thought Kim Woo Bin had some nice moments in the show, like so:

But I wasn’t too taken with the crazy curly mop of a hairdo that they gave him throughout the show, and I mostly just thought of him as the requisite rebel high-schooler who nursed a crush on his teacher:

Despite the measure of squee that I’d heard around the dramaverse over Kim Woo Bin, he barely blipped on my radar here.

Of course, now with fangirl lenses firmly on, I think he looks all kind of adorable, but that’s another story and perhaps necessitates a selective second watch of A Gentleman’s Dignity, heh.

Encounter 2: To The Beautiful You

I love Japan’s Hana Kimi, so when Korea decided to make its own version in To The Beautiful You, I knew I had to check it out.

Kinda like A Gentleman’s Dignity, this was a show that I had to figure out a way to enjoy, AND, whose poster of the ensemble cast didn’t even include Kim Woo Bin. Of course, this time, Kim Woo Bin had more of an extended cameo than an actual supporting role.

Maybe it was the better hair, but I liked him better here than in A Gentleman’s Dignity. Not enough to be blown away like everyone else, but enough to understand his appeal.  Sorta. Coz the weak writing in To The Beautiful You introduced his character rather clumsily, and that bothered me.

I did find him rather interesting overall, particularly for an extended cameo lasting just two episodes. And I noticed that his screen presence was strong:

Again, my fangirl lenses have now clued me in on how handsome Kim Woo Bin is in a tux (Eeee!), so let’s take a nice long look, just coz we can:

Given that I have a general weakness for men in crisp white shirts, I couldn’t possibly leave this one out either:

Aw. Beautiful.

Looks like a re-watch of episodes 9 and 10 of To The Beautiful You is somewhere in my future too.

Blown Away: School 2013

It was only in School 2013 that Kim Woo Bin officially blew me away with his screen presence and acting chops.

I don’t know what it was – as in, why now & not earlier.. maybe there was something in the water I was drinking that day? – but when Kim Woo Bin first appeared on my screen at the end of episode 3, the potency of his screen presence made me gasp out loud. Literally. I mean, just look at him, all fierce and badass:

That’s when I realized that his screen presence is formidable.

It’s a very male, dominant, forceful, compelling, magnetic sort of presence. All he had to do was show up on my screen, and I couldn’t take my eyes off him. And that, when I wasn’t even crushing on him at the time.

As the story progressed, I was really impressed with the layered nuance that Kim Woo Bin brought to his character. He was clearly full-on into his character and his delivery, and that immersion really showed, from big emotional scenes, to small subtle beats.

He was just so, so good.

Up till this show, I used to just see him as the go-to actor to play the rebellious kid, coz he’s got the total bad-boy look and vibe about him. Or maybe coz he did the bad-boy rebel so well in A Gentleman’s Dignity.

In School 2013, though, he outright blew the lid off what I’d used to think of him as an actor. I realized that he’s way, way more than the token bad-boy actor. He acted with so much nuance and brought so much intensity to the role that I found him completely masterful.

He showed so much, with so little. In some scenes, with hardly any change in his facial expression, he managed to communicate so much with just his eyes and the very minor muscle changes in his face, like he did in this scene:

It’s outstanding, and Kim Woo Bin shot up my mental list of brilliant k-actors because of this.

At the same time, I also became completely invested and totally smitten with his character’s bromance with Lee Jong Suk‘s character.

From tempestuous tension-laden scenes:

To exhilarated I-got-your-back bromantic scenes:

To the uneasy state of truce in between:

Both Kim Woo Bin and Lee Jong Suk approached the bromance with bold, barefaced emotional potency, and I was completely and utterly sucked in.

Honestly, I cared more about their bromance than about many a romantic love-line that I’d encountered in other dramas. These two had me on the edge of my seat, holding my breath for them during the Oh-no-what-now stretches, and squeeing out loud at the moments of pure cute like this one:

Eeeee! I just wanted to squish them! Seriously. How adorable are they??

In the spirit of not being overly spoilery, I won’t showcase any more screenshots of them here, just in case you haven’t seen the show (it’s awesome though, so go watch it!).

Suffice to say that long after the credits rolled, these two characters and their bromance continued to linger with me. Big time. Which led me where I don’t go very often – I started hunting for interviews and variety shows featuring these two together.

Soaking Up the Awesome: Interviews & Variety

At this juncture, I think it’s important to mention that I wasn’t yet in love with Woobie. I was just really, really taken with the bromantic awesome between him and Lee Jong Suk, and I wanted to soak it all up. And I was intoxicated from all the awesome I found.

Firstly, I was very much taken with the fact that Kim Woo Bin and Lee Jong Suk were already friends, but became real-life besties during the filming of School 2013; their easy, bromantic chemistry was a true pleasure to watch. Secondly, I was also very pleasantly surprised to find that Kim Woo Bin is full of substance – way more than his roles have shown. Put those 2 things together, and I was glued to my screen, lapping up his various joint interviews with Lee Jong Suk.

I love that Woobie’s got a comfortable, spontaneous vibe during interviews. He manages to be funny, witty, thoughtful and tactful, which is no easy thing, even for a seasoned celeb.

In joint interviews with Lee Jong Suk, he often is the one who finishes Jong Suk’s thoughts when Jong Suk’s at a loss, and he does so with finesse, in a way that shows depth of thought, capacity for humor, and sensitivity and respect for others. I love it.

It also turns out that he was a much better student than the characters he’s played, and that intelligence totally shows. His answers always sound so robust, even when the questions seem thrust at him from out of the blue, and that indicates that he’s thought about a lot of these things before. He strikes me as a more thoughtful person than one might imagine him to be, given his bad-boy image.

And he speaks well. His bad-boy characters so far have been more reticent in general, but when Kim Woo Bin speaks to answer a question, you can tell that he’s articulate, confident and well-spoken. And I love that too.

When faced with a question that is offensive, he deflects it with humor, not offense. Like, he’ll laughingly say things like, “What’s with these questions?” or “That’s too much.”

And it all comes across as so spontaneous, along with the little bits of off-the-cuff humor that he throws in. All in all, I feel like I’m getting to see the real him, not a manufactured version of him. This is particularly pronounced when it’s a joint interview with Jong Suk, and I believe it’s coz their friendly rapport makes him truly relaxed.

On top of that, he comes across as comfortably affectionate, which I really, really love. I notice that in interviews with Lee Jong Suk, Kim Woo Bin’s usually the one who will be more handsy. Like how he thwacks Jong Suk in the chest whenever Jong Suk says something to rib him. So cute!

Interviews

These are 2 of my favorite joint interviews of Woo Bin with Jong Suk.

In this one, I love how Woo Bin keeps having to finish Jong Suk’s thoughts for him:

And in this one, I love their easy banter and affectionate sparring. And the hints of handsy we get from both of them:

Running Man

I don’t watch Running Man regularly, but check out episodes selectively, based on who’s guesting. Of course, when I found out that Woo Bin and Jong Suk guested together on episode 138, I eagerly eyeballed the 2 of them on my screen, practically exploding from all the cute.

I particularly loved how affectionately handsy they are with each other.

I noticed that Woo Bin’s usually the one who is more affectionately demonstrative, not only with Jong Suk, but also with Lee Jong Hyun, who acted with him in A Gentleman’s Dignity. In the speed-eating snippet on Running Man, Kim Woo Bin’s almost always got his arm hanging around Jong Suk’s shoulder, and he doesn’t hesitate to clap Jong Suk on the shoulder, or hold onto his arm, or crash into Jong Suk while cracking up with laughter. And there is nothing gay about it, either. You can easily tell that he’s just very comfortable with being affectionate, and I love that. So much.

Here’s a short snippet of Woo Bin and Jong Suk during the speed-eating segment:

Edit: The link to the full episode that I’d posted previously no longer works (sadface). The good news is, you can still watch the full episode on kshowonline here.

For those who are able to read Chinese, here’s the full episode with Chinese subs:

Falling in Love Part 1: Dreamland

In the midst of checking out all the joint interviews and Running Man of Woo Bin with Jong Suk, I was in full-on spazz mode over their wonderful bromance. I wasn’t actually crushing on either of them, although I did find Woo Bin more attractive.

And then, one morning, after gorging on the bromance on Running Man the night before, I had a dream. Of Woobie.

Those of you who’ve read my Liebster post would already know a little about the dream, but I’m going to describe it a little bit more here.

I dreamed that Woo Bin climbed through my window into my room to visit me. It wasn’t my actual room, it was some other room, which had an attached bathroom but only curtains instead of doors, and he climbed into my room to cuddle and talk with me. In bed. Swoon. ❤

The feel was cozy and unhurried, and he put his arm around me as I laid my head on his chest. I think my face was resting on bare skin, and I remember slowly tracing his bare torso and leg with my hand as we talked. We talked about the hard times he’d had, and the things he’d had to bear with because he couldn’t afford certain things. I comforted him and stroked his leg and torso as we cuddled and talked some more.

Afterwards, I asked if he would visit me again, and he said that he would, as long as my window was open. That statement felt figurative as well as literal.

Most of all, I love how the cuddling and talking in bed felt. It felt so real and so intimate. Intimate, not so much in the sexy sense, but in an emotional sense. I loved that sensation. So melty and so swoony. So lovely. ❤

When I woke up, I was completely taken with the dream, but I wasn’t yet in love. Let me explain.

I think it’s important to mention that I’m an equal opportunity k-dreamer. What does that even mean, you ask?

Well, I have k-dreams fairly regularly, and while I do dream of my k-loves, I also often have dreams where random k-people show up, and sometimes, it’s romantic. Like, I once dreamed that TOP was my boyfriend and was driving me around in his car, and then he brought me to a secret exhibition that he’d prepared for me and surprised me with it. He also kissed me on the cheek. Lovely. I also once dreamed that Lee Byung Hun showed up on a motorbike and gave me a ride.

I know, I have some pretty cool k-dreams, don’t I? ;)

So, when Kim Woo Bin showed up in my dream, I didn’t think it necessarily meant anything. Boy, was I wrong.

Falling in Love Part 2: More Interviews & Variety

I loved the dream so much that I spazzed enthusiastically and endlessly about it with my friend Michele, in the midst of hunting out more interview & variety tid-bits on Woo Bin.

And the more I found out about him, the more he endeared himself to me. By degrees. Until I suddenly found myself in unexpected serious like with him.

I totally didn’t see this k-crush coming, since I pretty much was smitten purely with the bromance between him and Lee Jong Suk. It’s just that the more I ate up the bromance, the more I saw of Kim Woo Bin, and he just impressed me more and more.

I love that he’s the outward bad-boy with a ton of substance and affection. And I think I love him all the more because he crept up on me.

Usually I start crushing on an actor because of his role, and then as I discover more of his real self through interviews, I get (mostly) disillusioned and disappointed with his lack of personality and lose interest.

In Kim Woo Bin’s case, though, the only reason I’d been checking out BTS clips of him and watching him in variety, is because I wanted to see more of his interactions with Lee Jong Suk. And along the way, he snuck up on me and stole what turned out to be a pretty whopping chunk of my heart. And I love that.

By the end of that day, I was all, Ahhhh!! Kim Woo Bin, you lovely, lovely boy. I think I kinda love you. ❤

I dived headlong into more interviews and variety, and here are some of my favorites.

Interviews

I really enjoyed this interview that Woo Bin did for Sina.com. Again, he manages to come across as thoughtful, humble and genuine, which I love. I particularly love the bit where he addresses his parents and thanks them for believing in him:

I also really liked this clip, which shows how serious Woo Bin is about acting, and yet how modest he is about his acting ability:

Hwasin

I don’t follow Hwasin / Strong Heart 2, but watched episode 7 because Woo Bin guested, and what a lovely episode that turned out to be.

The topic of the day was the lies that men and women tell one another, and that led into a side topic of each individual’s struggles. The tone was honest and thoughtful, which I found really refreshing in the sea of competition- and gag-heavy variety.

Woo Bin was the youngest among the guests, and I loved that he held his own, while remaining respectful to his sunbaes in the room.

The honest sharing by everyone in the room was touching, and I was particularly moved when Woo Bin teared up while describing his early days of trying to make it as a model, where he often had to go hungry because he didn’t have money for food. Aw, poor baby..

Here are a couple of screenshots of Woo Bin during the sharing and discussion:

One of the highlights of the episode for me, was this moment, when host Kim Hee Sun asked Woo Bin how he would respond if his girlfriend were to say “I love you.” Without a moment’s hesitation, Woo Bin answered, “I love you too” while everyone else in the room squealed at how naturally it comes to him. Adorable!

I loved the entire episode, and I wouldn’t mind watching it again, even.

I couldn’t find a link for the episode on YouTube, but if you live in the US, you can watch it on DramaFever here.

And if you don’t live in the US, you can get ahold of the episode and subs files here.

Other Interview Snippets

Here are some links to various interviews that I enjoyed reading:

Star1 interview: “I want to be a good person” by Actor Kim Woo Bin here

The Korea Times: Crisscrossing Runway and Screen here

Cosmopolitan interview, September 2013 here

Translated article from CINE21.com here

Sports Seoul: 30 Questions for Kim Woo Bin here

Perhaps my favorite bit of all, is question 19, from the last link.

When asked “What do you want your girlfriend to be like?” Woobie answered, “I want to be able to learn a lot from her. As for looks, it’s fine as long as she is beautiful in my eyes.”

Omomo! How sweet is that?? Swoooonn~~ THUNK.

Head Over Heels In Love

By this time, I was head over heels in love with Woobie, and as all determined fangirls do, I set out to watch him in everything I could lay my hands on.

Uh-huh. Even Runway Cop:

Where Woobie’s appearance is so fleeting that if you blink, you might miss it:

I know. I wish I could find a better screenshot too. But that’s the best I could find, and I’ve already deleted my copy of the movie coz I don’t see myself watching it again, Woobie or no.

The Things I Watch for Woobie: White Christmas

I also resolved to watch White Christmas, despite my aversion to scary shows.

In my mind, I’d thought that White Christmas was a really scary show, since most people I know advised not to watch it alone &/or late at night.

Thankfully, it turned out to be a lot less scary than I’d imagined.

Another big plus was that Woobie was quite wonderful in it.

I really enjoyed Woo Bin’s portrayal of Mi Reu, who was intensely intimidating, affably adorable and badass brilliant all at the same time.

I loved how Mi Reu could, in the blink of an eye, go from this:

To this:

And yes, I loved the little flash of shirtless that we got as well:

The only thing I hoped was that Woobie didn’t actually have to make real cracking sounds with his jaw. Coz, badass as that made him look, I worried for his jaw. :P

Here’s a quick taste of the Mi Reu awesome:

The Things I Watch for Woobie: Vampire Idol

Vampire Idol is a show that I’d originally wanted to watch based on the general good reactions that I’d read, about how it was a lot of campy, ridiculous fun. But after I heard that it got unceremoniously sliced in half due to poor ratings and that the series had a dangling ending, I’d given up the idea.

That is, until I fell in love with Woobie. That changed everything. Coz now I just had to watch it, sliced in half or no, and with lack of English subs to boot.

Thankfully, I can read Chinese, so I’m making do quite nicely with Chinese subs.

I’m not even halfway through the show as I type this, but I will say that it is lots of campy nonsensical fun, and Woobie is hilariously adorable at times.

I love that his character is a hopeless romantic, and falls in love with a bunny mascot because she gave him a present (a balloon, hee!) and took a photo with him. He doesn’t even realize that there’s a girl inside the mascot costume, and it’s all kinds of adorable and hilarious:

I’m going real slow on this one, so that I have fresh Woobie on hand even while waiting for his next projects to go live.

Yes, I’m going to watch Heirs, even if it turns out to be a stinker. [Edit: Yes, I watched it all. Review is here.]

And you can be sure I’m keeping my eyes peeled for Friend 2 as well. I mean, look at him, all sharp and handsome in that suit:

Squee!! ❤

A Growing Photo Collection

Of course, while all that drama watching was going on, I also managed to amass quite a lovely collection of Woobie photos, which I’ll gladly share a sampling of with ya.

I’m splitting them into several different looks, for our easy enjoyment.

Gentle Giant

One of the things I really like about Woobie is how his real-life personality seems quite shy and gentle. It’s extra fascinating to me, given that he basically made his name playing fierce bad-boy rebel types.

Fierce &/or Broody

Of course, we know that he’s fully capable of putting on his fierce or broody face when needed, and these are some of my favorites.

Sharply Suited

Perhaps one of my favorite looks on Woobie, is the sharp suit. It’s partly because of his height (6’2, or 1.88m, baby!), but it’s also a lot to do with how he carries it. And he carries it gorgeously well. I think I might hyperventilate just a little, if Woobie showed up in front of me in a sharp suit. Or melt into a puddle. Or both.

Although, 2 days after my first dream of Woobie, I had another dream of him, and he did show up in a lovely sharp suit. Not only that, he was my boyfriend too! Ahhh.. My lovely dreamscape, how much do I love thee, for bringing me Woobie? ❤

Gorgeous, gorgeous man. ❤

In Model Form

Of course, we can’t forget that modeling is a big part of Woobie’s career, and was what got him interested in acting in the first place. I don’t like every single thing that he has had to wear on the runway – they make him wear some really weird avant garde stuff sometimes! – but here are a few of his modeling shots that I do like.

Shirtless

One of the things I find quite fascinating about Woobie is that he used to be really, really skinny. That’s possibly part of the reason why all his classmates were disbelieving when he said in school that he aspired to be a model.

But Woobie’s worked really hard to beef up, and here are some of the results.

I’m looking forward to even more tantalizing shirtless pix, as he continues to work out and bulk up ;) Goooo, Woobie!

Sporty & Athletic

Just a little more evidence of Woobie’s sporty side.. And I must say, those very firm biceps had me rather mesmerized ;)

Bromantic

Because bromance is such a large part of how I fell in love with Woobie, and because the bromantic photos are just so cute and so much fun to look at, here’s a nice sampling of Woobie-Jong Suk pix.

Adorable

Of course, Woobie can be plenty adorable on his own too.

I mean, just take a look at this face:

Love, love, LOVE. ❤

And check out the cute here:

Casual Candid

This is another one of my favorite sorts of Woobie pix: the candids. Or at least, the casual shots that appear candid.

It’s a mix of cute and cool, and I love it coz it makes me feel like I’m getting a closer glimpse of Woobie the person.

Gasp! Phone Invasion!

Y’know, despite my years of fangirling, no k-love has ever managed to make it onto my phone. Not even at the height of my fangirl love for any of my major k-loves.

I just thought it was, well, kinda undignified. Coz in my mind, that’s something mostly reserved for screaming teenage fans.. Or so I thought.

Ha. Watch me eat my words now, coz Woobie’s invaded my phone good and proper, and has usurped wallpaper status on a permanent basis. Just take a look at the various ones I’ve had so far:

Yes, I know. That’s a lot of wallpaper. And a lot of words to eat.

What can I say? I love having a little bit of Woobie gazing at me out of my phone at any given moment.

Can you blame me, though?

Look at that smolder:

And just look at that adorable smile:

Sigh.. Sometimes I think Woobie’s just plain beautiful.

Just look at this:

And this:

Melt, and melt.

Lovely, lovely Woobie.. In my dreamscape, you’re all mine ❤

EDIT: Speaking of dreamscape, check out our epic dream drama, starring the Woob here!

  3. I loved him in School 2013, which happens to be his only show that I’ve seen….. eagerly waiting for his next show Heirs that stars two of my other favorites as well (Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye) :)
    Wow…..you had quite an interesting journey in your love for Kim Woo Bin :P

    • Aw, isn’t he just amazing in School 2013??? :D I was completely blown away by his Heung Soo. I loved that he got into character so deeply that in some scenes where he wasn’t supposed to cry, he cried anyway, because the tears just flowed. Chills. I am SO looking forward to seeing his future works, to see where he takes that talent!

      And yes, my love for Woobie has been mostly of the unexpected variety, hasn’t it?? Most of the time, I dream of a k-love only AFTER I figure out he’s a k-love, not the other way around! XD This time, my subconscience seemed to be much faster on the uptake than the rest of me, Lol!

  4. Your fangirling is so cute! Dreams, cell phone wallpapers…adorable! I’ll have to come back to watch these interviews. But the pictures you posted are amazing. LOVE the last one. I like the mature look on him with his hair pushed back and to the side. It absolutely suits him more than the shaggy bang hair that a lot of Korean celebs have been sporting lately.

    I admit I haven’t seen any of his dramas. But I keep seeing him in pictures. I think I saw a clip of School 2013 and he caught my eye immediately!! Normally I get bored fast with High School dramas and avoid them, but I am definitely going to see ‘Heirs’ (Who can resist all that hotness in one drama? Choi Jin Hyuk, Lee Min Ho, and Kim Woo Bin!) It was those thick, fierce eyebrows that did it for me, and his height. WOW. I hope he gets a starring role in a really good drama and a chance to shine like his bestie Lee Jong Suk did in “I hear your voice.”

    Woo Bin is nearly a decade younger than me, so I’m trying not to squee too hard! LOL. I know it really doesn’t matter. But I really do see so much awesome potential in him and hope he goes far in his career.

    He has the perfect face, height, and willowy yet sinewy body for a strong and heroic character in a Sageuk! I can see him with long shiny hair, rather than a full top knot, wielding an expert sword. He’ll be so fierce, so his counterpart/love interest will have to be delicate as a daisy, but funny and pretty to kind of melt his stony, warrior heart…look, now you got me daydreaming!

    “It’s a very male, dominant, forceful, compelling, magnetic sort of presence. All he had to do was show up on my screen, and I couldn’t take my eyes off him.”

    You described exactly how I felt just watching him in the few minutes of clips And it all goes back to those eyebrows. Rawwr! ;)

    • Omo, you haven’t seen School 2013, Lady G?? Woobie is seriously SPECTACULAR in School 2013. I’m not even saying that with fangirl lenses on. He was flat-out brilliant! And he and Jong Suk together – PURE. GOLD. Consider giving School 2013 a go – It may not be as glossy or shiny as Heirs looks to be, but Woobie’s & Jong Suk’s fantastic performances, individually AND together, make it a very solid, worthwhile watch. I’m planning a re-watch sometime soon-ish myself! ^^

      And yes, he gets to be plenty fierce in School 2013! And super nuanced and controlled at the same time too. Out of all the stuff I’ve seen him in, School 2013 is still my hands-down favorite! ❤

      I do agree with the mounds and mounds of potential in Woobie.. I can hardly believe that he only learned about acting because he needed to know some acting in order to model. Mind-blowing.

      Plus! A sageuk?!? What a brilliant idea!! His eyebrows are MADE for sageuk!! And that dominant, magnetic screen presence? Squee! He’d make an excellent fierce, kickass sageuk warrior. *imagination, activate!* ;D

      • Okay, I’m convinced, into the Queue School 2013 goes. Lately I’m getting drama depressed. I’m watching 2 new ones that are really good, “Two Weeks” and “Good Doctor.” But every time I start an old one I seem drop it for lack of interest. :p I’m still still watching Jumong, and I’m ready to start ep. 29. That’s 4 episodes longer than I’ve ever watched in a drama. I hope to finish that by…November. lol. Jong Suk grew on me after “I hear your voice.” I’m not really attracted to him, but he’s a terrific actor and still a cutie.

        So I will definitely start watching School. Maybe after Heirs they’ll give Woo Bin a great Saguek to star in. I hope. :)

        • Aw. Drama depression sucks – whenever that happens to me, I start to wonder if I’m finally getting tired of kdrama.. And then I get started on a show that’s actually good, and I realize that, Nah, it’s not me, it’s the dramas – I just needed a good one, is all! ;D

          It’s funny how it’s the older dramas that aren’t holding your interest.. For most people, it’s the live watches that are harder to sustain their interest in, since there’s a week’s wait between episodes. With marathoning an older drama, there’s no enforced waiting period, so you can move on to the next ep whenever you feel like it, so it’s usually an easier watch. Unless, like it’s happened for me, it’s just dull dramas! XD

          Jong Suk grew on me pretty fast in School 2013.. His character was introduced very well, and he brought a lot of expression and nuance to the character in his delivery. Before I knew it, I was rooting for him before the end of episode 1! I didn’t really find him attractive, though, until I started on IHYV.. My word, he looked a touch more manly even though he essentially looked the same, and the glorious lighting and his smile just made my screen explode with rainbows, puppies and unicorns. I was squeeing out loud at the awesome, and it would’ve just been PERFECT, if Woobie could’ve been onscreen with him too! Eeee!! The awesome!! ;D

          YAY that you’re planning to give School 2013 a chance!! Woobie only appears at the end of E3, so hang in there! In the meantime, Lee Jong Suk really BRINGS it on his own, in E1 and E2. Ahhh!! I love that show! I hope you enjoy the watch, so that we can spazz together!! ^^

          I DO really hope Woobie gets to try a good sageuk role sometime in the not too distant future. Some actors go for years before they actually act in one (like Hyun Bin and Lee Byung Hun), but I personally consider it a pretty important rite of passage. I think a sageuk role stretches you as an actor in ways that a trendy doesn’t, and it’s a great exposure for any actor serious about honing his craft. And Woobie IS serious about that, from what I can tell! ^^

          Like

          • Your enthusiasm for “Woobie” has gotten me excited! LOL. And I totally agree. Sageuks bring out the best in the actors. I remember Oh Ji Ho saying the same thing when he made Chuno, which was his first Sageuk. And everyone in that did an amazing job!

            I guess I am a little backwards. I think it was these certain dramas, even though I was watching it cuz I loved the lead actor, the story, and everything going on failed to hold my attention. And even though the entire series is up, I still get impatient! haha. I think cuz now that I’m no longer a K-drama novice, I can tell when a story is just dragging its feet, or the ‘couple’ are behaving like Junior High School and I’m like, get on with it!

            That’s why going back to Kim Woo Bin:

            **:when host Kim Hee Sun asked Woo Bin how he would respond if his girlfriend were to say “I love you.” Without a moment’s hesitation, Woo Bin answered, “I love you too” while everyone else in the room squealed at how naturally it comes to him. Adorable!”**

            Have you ever seen that in a Drama? Nope. They would have to drag that out for 4 episodes. Or the guy would be like…I *like* you. LOL. It would be great for Woo Bin to break the mold! haha

            But I keep those on the backburner and go to them when I get in Drama panic mode…What do I watch? Oh no! lol.

            • Yes, come to think of it, Chuno was the one and only show I’ve seen Oh Ji Ho in, where he actually impressed me. I found him very underwhelming in all the other trendies that I saw him in, but he really dug deep for Chuno, and the improvement was very distinct!

              Ahh.. Recognizing the kdrama tropes is what’s getting you down.. I guess it’s safe to say that we can’t quite expect to fully leave the kdrama tropes behind, since there’s a reason we love our kdramas & those tropes helped to make them what they are.. :) It’s how skillfully they’re written in and executed that makes the difference, I think. Also, there are some shows that manage to either depart quite nicely from being too tropey, and others that manage to turn the cliches on their heads for a good satirical laugh.

              I guess the bottom line is that you’re getting more discerning about your dramas, & that’s a very natural rite of passage, imo.. I used to lap up any and every rom-com on the horizon, just coz it was a rom-com that got me hooked on kdrama & I just liked that light romantic happy vibe. Now, though, I’ve become a lot more discerning in terms of which shows I spend my precious drama hours on. On the downside, it’s harder to find a drama that satisfies me, but on the upside, I’ve gotten a lot more exposure to different genres and styles, and I’ve enjoyed some dramas that I’d have never checked out in the past. Like Gaksital. Or Vampire Prosecutor. Or Chuno, even.

              Have you watched Gaksital, btw? It’s quite brilliant. If you haven’t checked it out, maybe you’d like to consider it ^^

              • You hit the drama nail on the head. That’s exactly what I’m feeling. I think the older ones were more ‘tropey’ and the newer ones the writers realize that their audiences are more clever than they may have thought, they get tired of the same old situations.

                Gakistal…BRIDAL MASK! Ohh, I have that in the queue. I plan to watch it after Good Doctor (both star Joo Won the cutie). Thanks for recommending it. :D

                Like

                • Almost as a general rule, the older the drama, the more tropey it tends to be, though that’s not always the case. I try to remember that it’s the older dramas that did the tropes first so they aren’t as unoriginal as they feel ;)

                  I have a major soft spot for Gaksital coz this was the show that sparked off the trend of epic reviews on this blog.. I found it so meaty and solid and really quite brilliant that I wrote 13,000 words to try to analyze it all and express that brilliance. That just unlocked a whole flood though, coz it’s now become a trend on this blog for reviews to go epic more often than not! XD

                  Yay that Gaksital is on your list! Joo Won is just fantastic in it.. I was watching him in Ojakgyo Brothers at the same time and he came across as 2 very distinct characters. So impressive, I thought! :D I totally recommend both dramas, btw. Ojakgyo Brothers is a lovely heartwarming watch where Joo Won gets to be cute and swoony.. And then there’s Gaksital, where he’s fiercely conflicted. So. Good. :D

Between him and Joo Won’s swoony charm, there’s lots of squee in the show to keep you very satisfied! It’s one of my fave family dramas of all time.

Plus! Double dose of Joo Won!! ;D

That’s like, the complete opposite experience of many other k-crushes I’ve encountered, which all promptly died unceremonious deaths when the crushes turned out to be boring/arrogant/fake/all of the above, and failed to live up to their onscreen awesome. *flails about* I can’t begin to express the delight of experiencing the complete opposite process with Woobie. Ahhhh!!! ❤

      Yes, I think Woobie has tons of potential as an actor..

He’s already way ahead of the likes of NMW, who’s pretty, yes, but who really isn’t much of an actor.

      Aw, UTW is great, and totally worthy of major fangirl loyalty! :D I warmed to his appeal a little slowly, but once I saw it, I found him a pretty darn awesome actor. And then when I saw his initiation episode in 1N2D, I loved how affable and adorable he is in real life. UTW rawks ^^

                It certainly sounds good, but I think K-Love fangirling should not be taken for granted or forced. ;) Only write when you are compelled to for a certain actor, don’t feel you have to dig and search for one just to make a post.

I can’t believe I am able to be an actor with this face.” Kim Woo Bin continued, “If I have to say it, Lee Min ho has the better face but I have the better body.”…..the way you look at it he answered it with no qualms and you can feel him being a straight forward person…that’s a plus factor for him…you see..fangirling is not only because of good looks…the composure and good manner of every k-love hunk or cutie we adore also played a big part….:)<3

But, sadly, there doesn’t seem to be a pattern to it whatsoever.. I sometimes have k-dreams after immersing myself in the subject matter for a good stretch., like how I had Gaksital and Chuno related dreams while writing their reviews over the course of several intense days. That first dream of Woobie probably had a lot to do with all the interviews and variety I was lapping up. Most of the time, though, it’s completely random and has nothing to do with ANYTHING. My TOP dream? Completely lovely and super detailed. And completely random. Same thing with the Lee Byung Hun dream. Really cool, and also completely random. So.. super long tangent later.. I guess the answer is, I don’t know? *sheepish* :P

They are very random, and usually i’m the ‘observer’ in my dreams and not really part of the action. Almost like I’m directing the movie. The last one I remember from a few days ago, was like this sci-fi nightmare where everyone in the neighborhood would hear a weird, loud siren, then all of a sudden turn zombie-like and violent. They weren’t dead though. And the only one who had or knew the cure was Joo-Won (In character as the autistic doctor from ‘Good Doctor! lol) I was actually in this dream and I remember I kept seeing him and trying to stay with him because I was scared and I knew he could do something about it.

    • YES, there is a WHOLE LOTTA awesome when Woobie and Jong Suk are onscreen together, isn’t there?! How far into the show are you now, evez? I ended up loving this bromance even more than the one in SKKS, actually. I mean, the bromance in SKKS was excellent, and I loved it, but this particular brand of Woobie-Jong Suk awesome is just WAYYY more addictive, imo. :D And Woobie is just amazing in the role. I mean, he just wowed me. Jong Suk as well. They both did wonderfully in their roles, which just added to the off-the-charts awesome ^^ They are simply cracktastic, those two.. ❤

      YAY that you’re discovering the Woobie awesome, evez! Coz spazzing with a fellow fangirl is just SO much fun! ;D I am looking forward to Woobie taking on more varied and challenging roles in the future.. I do think he’s got a lot of talent, and he’s serious enough about his craft to hone it with care.

  18. seriously Woobie is!…like what when i first saw LSJ in “Secret Garden”…this is what great in watching k-dramas you’ll discover talented artist first as part of extended cast only..but then upon watching it’s always a high-spirited feeling to notice a non-lead cast captivates your attention not only of stunning looks but also of good acting skills as well..from then you’ll become a fan and it’s a good thing to see that the one you admire is progressing affirmatively.

      Yes, I’m definitely stoked to be watching Woobie build his career in real time.. And I’m very pleased that even though his role in School 2013 wasn’t QUITE the lead, that it was meaty and gave him room to shine.

In Vampire Idol, it was mostly for laughs, and in TTBY, it was one-sided, and in School 2013, romance wasn’t even on his mind. That WOULD be interesting to see: Woobie playing the romantic leading man. I think when that happens (& I’m SURE it’ll happen, he’s so talented!) I’m gonna have a total spazz attack.

Woobie really gives it his all when preparing for a character, and it’d be a waste if he played opposite someone who can’t really act.. If he plays opposite a good actress, though, we have the potential for some serious onscreen magic. And THAT is something I’m chomping at the bit to see ^^

That’s my Woobie.. ❤ I love what he said when he was asked about possibly being typecast, that it’s every actor’s job to create different characters. To me, that IS a mark of a great actor, to be able to make characters feel distinct and different, even if they appear similar on paper. I’m so looking forward to seeing him in Friend 2!!

      And that Ceci video – LOVE IT!!! :D He reminds me of some kind of vampire prince, the way he’s styled and how he comes across. So cool & languid, & charismatic & mysterious & broody, with just a hint of a smile playing about his lips. Ahhhh!!! Gorgeous!!!

          Now that I think about it, I’m SO glad that that isn’t the direction that Woobie’s friendship with Jong Suk is taking. I like them fine just the way they are: dorky and affectionate with each other, without any faux romance. I’d rather fantasize about Woobie makin’ out with ME, thankyouverymuch! XD

    I really, really, really love your blog, and I think it is my 1st time commenting here. I came here in April (or was it in May?) and read your review of Gaksital, which honestly blew me away. Well done, *claps while standing.* I loved that it was extensive, passionate and well written. Thank you so much for doing all that work and gracing us with such a wonderful piece to read.

    As someone who LOVES to write, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE that you are not afraid of words and you write, write and write away. I am the same way, and I TOTALLY love that about your blog. You are thorough and extensive, and unabashed in your fangirling. I know I have used the word “love” a lot, however, I do LOVE that about your blog, your writing, and your personality. I am the same way, and so it is really nice to come across people who are like that.

    Thank you for your thread on KWB, who I am getting to know better. I did see him in AGD, and though I found him to be good there, I didn’t think much of him at the time. I am currently watch Heirs (I have not watched School 2013 yet, I know :-( ) and I am just in love with KWB’s acting in that drama. Oh, the things this man does with his voice, eyes, his eyebrows, the crinkling of his nose (swoon and nosebleed, :-) ), etc…
    And as you have mentioned, his intensity, his presence, his charisma, his gravitas (yes, he has it), *Sigh* I really wish I could sit down with him and ask him how does he do it, like really? And where does he go, to pull that stuff? And as you mentioned (and as I have gathered) he has not acted for very long.

    Reading quickly your thread on KWB (I will have to come back and read it thoroughly), made me realize what an awesome guy he is behind the scenes and in real life. I know a mom whose son goes to the school where the filming takes place in Heirs, and she spent 2 days on the set, when they were filming. She said that the consensus on the set is that KWB is the most personable actor in that cast (are we even surprised at this point? …Err… No????!) He will sign anything, and take pictures with anyone. LMH doesn’t take pictures, I am assuming he must have some restrictions placed on him. I love that KWB is emotionally intelligent as well, and that he has great people skills (Yay!!!!)

    I am going to stop for now, before I write a whole book on your blog :-). I just wanted to say “Thank you!” for all that you do, and to encourage you when you feel overwhelmed about maintaining this blog. I personally appreciate it, and I know I am not the only one.

    Have a wonderful day :-), and please continue to bring your joy to the blogosphere.

    P.S.: I also LOVE that you respond personally to the comments left to you. I look forward to your response :-)

Given how long some of my reviews tend to get, I am continually moved that so many people are happy to invest the time to read them, especially in the prevailing online climate of fleeting attention spans.

You – and wordiness in general – are welcome here ;)

      YAY that you’re getting to know KWB.. Isn’t he so, so lovely??? Sigh.. The more I get to know about him, the more I love him, seriously. And if you want to see more of him being amazing, you just hafta, HAFTA check out School 2013, Ivoire! If you think that he’s great in Heirs, you’ll be pleased to know that he’s even more flat-out BRILLIANT in School 2013, and I’m not even exaggerating as a fangirl would. I say that objectively, since I hadn’t even fallen for him yet, when I watched & reviewed School 2013!! He will completely blow you away, I guarantee it. The only problem with that, though, is afterwards, you’re almost sure to have a serious case of KWB-craving. :P If you’re anything like me, you’ll want to inhale anything and everything he’s ever appeared in, and as we know, Woobie’s filmography is still in its early growth stages, so pickings aren’t as much as I’d like.

      How awesome is that, that you actually know someone who visited the set and saw Woobie in action??? *spazzes at the thought* And I’m not surprised at all, really, that Woobie’s so personable and friendly. Based on the various interviews and footage I’ve seen of him, I feel like he’s a really genuine guy. I love how thoughtfully candid he is, giving answers that betray a ton of intelligence & substance, while managing to remain respectful and tactful. It just seems to come so naturally to him, and I LOVE THAT. Another thing that I really, really love about him, is his friendly affectionate bent. Sweet, adorable, lovely Woobie ❤

      PS: LMH doesn’t take pictures? How odd.. I thought most k-celebs tend to be quite picture-friendly. Y’know, to please the fans & all..

    • Hello Ivoire! Welcome to Kfangirl’s blog. I’m a regular here, chatting and sharing here and there. Hope to hang out with you.

      Though Woobie has not been acting on screen for long, I’ve read that he had taken acting lessons early on in his modeling career to become more effective. So, I’m thinking that must have been where all his intensity in expressing emotions quietly was honed.

      • D’aw ❤ Every time you welcome someone to the blog, I can’t help but grin from ear to ear. Coz it feels like you’re being the unnie/sunbae around here, and I LOVE IT. Thanks for helping everyone feel at home, kaiaraia. ❤ The unnie/sunbae status is totally well-deserved ^.~

        Oh yes, Woobie took some acting lessons while modeling, coz he felt it was a necessary skill to help him move to another level of modeling, and it was during the lessons that he started to love acting. I do believe the lessons helped him in terms of acquiring skill.. When I think about it, I believe it was really his role in School 2013 that really was the breakthrough for him, in terms of unlocking his talent. He was very decent in roles before this, but it’s only in School 2013 that he makes this huge quantum leap and becomes totally nuanced, amazing and brilliant and makes my head spin.

        I’m so glad he’s found a way to tap into his talent, coz really, I think he’s sooo talented. So much of what he does can’t be taught in an acting class (coz, if it could be taught in an acting class, wouldn’t we be seeing many more capable actors? :P)

    • Heirs is driving me batty with its idea of romance AND its idea of character development. But I hafta stick up for Woobie and say that he’s really making the best of what’s written for him, bringing whatever nuance and layers possible, to a character who’s really not very well fleshed-out even halfway through the drama. I think I’m gonna have to re-watch School 2013 after Heirs is over, to smooth over any frazzled nerves over the lackluster characterization of Woobie’s character in Heirs.

      But I have to agree with you, evez. Woobie looks real fine in that leather jacket. He looks so cool and so badass at once, and so very handsome. He wears it very well indeed ❤

    • It’s rather disappointing that at the halfway mark, so many characters still feel underdeveloped, and yes, I’m thinking that’s partly to do with the very large cast of characters. I also think it’s a writing flaw. I mean, I’ve watched other ensemble type dramas, and those felt well-handled (Dream High, Shut Up Flower Boy Band) both story- and character-wise. I guess it’s not impossible to work with a large cast. But it does take skill and care, and I don’t quite see or feel it, in Heirs. So many characters feel 2-dimensional still, and the story seems to want to go everywhere, but isn’t quite going anywhere. I’ve heard some rumors about plot developments going forward that hint at birth secrets & bromance, and I’m wondering how I feel about that. I mean, I do want things to move along better plot-wise, but I do wonder at how coherent this will turn out. I mean, I LOVE the bromance in School 2013, and mostly, it’s because the rift felt real, and the resolution felt earned.. In Heirs, the rift feels a little like a big-deal-about-nothing, and the resolution, if it happens within the next few episodes, may likely feel overly convenient. I hope I’m wrong, of course. And for Woobie’s sake, I’ll stay tuned to find out. ^^

I also had issues with her odd posture, like her butt stuck out very unnaturally or sth, but then, no one else in the dramaverse seemed to notice it, so maybe it’s just me :P Or maybe you might notice it, and then I’ll know it’s not just me..!

                  In the case of AGD’s female lead, though, I think it was more a posture thing. I felt like she was sticking her butt out to a crazy extent. Maybe someone told her that was the best way to achieve the coveted S-line? Oh dear. Now you’ll probably be totally unable to look away from her posture while watching AGD – oopsie! But then again, it might prove a worthwhile distraction from the aegyo? :P

                  Seriously, though. LOTS of people love her, and love AGD. I’m probably in the minority here, having issues with the show and the actress etc. You might end up liking it way more than I did! ^^

                    I watched the first episode of AGD and I kind of get what you mean. She does act like a teenager. Though I’m 33 and sometimes I still do, haha! So far I actually like her. Still, the Aegyo act will start to wear thin soon.

                    Butt, (haha pun!) I guess The whole butt thing started from the first episode with the red wool dress and I believe he said the most funniest and provocative thing to her: “Your butt remembers what I did last Spring” bwhaha.

                    Jang Dong Gun looks really handsome, but scary thin here, I just want to give him 3 cheeseburgers. :/ He looks like he was feeding off a liquid diet, not just trim, but no muscle tone or anything. Not cool. I recently read he’s about to become a father again. That’s sweet. He looks much better these days.

                    The men are all so funny! And it’s great to see Lee Jong Hyuk play against type, he’s usually the serious dude. So I love that aspect of it. I laughed aloud with these guys a lot. Their bromance will probably keep the whole thing afloat for me.

                      Y’know, thinking about it, I don’t have issues with a 30-something woman acting like a teenager coz that can have very positive connotations – having energy, passion and enthusiasm, for example. For me, the issue I had with her is that she was ditzy to the extent of appearing.. developmentally challenged. The way she spoke sometimes was a lethal combination of ditzy bimbo mashed up in the worst way possible, with developmentally challenged kid with speech issues. It drove me batty.

                      And yes, JDG’s extreme skinniness and sallow pallor just did not look healthy or appealing to me. I did love the smoldery eyes that he turned on at times though. Very nice indeed. And the nonsensical bromantic antics among the 4 guys were fun to watch, once I succeeded in convincing myself these weren’t actually supposed to be grown men, lol :p

                    • I’m sad to say I gave up on AGD after 2 episodes of her ditzy bimbo mash. I don’t blame the leading men at all, they were terrific and acted appropriately inappropriate for their ages! haha. And Woobie, can’t forget him, he was excellent. But then I realized the story didn’t captivate me. I skipped around to the end.
                      I was willing to give her benefit of the doubt. I figured because the lead male was a cold, world weary playboy, they needed that bubbly, ‘innocent’ woman to bring him out of his shell. But it just seemed awkward every time given her age and profession as a teacher. I was mad that her high school students were more mature than she was. She’s all over her bed whining, kicking and screeching, or hitting her head at the table and pulling at her hair like a 4-year old, putting on that pouty ‘aegyo’ voice you warned me about. That turned me off super fast. Sad to say, I’ve worked around mentally disabled people for a number of years and even they didn’t resort to those things every minute like she did!!
                      Yes, yes, despite the skinniness, JDG’s eyes are just dreamy! I fell into them. :D I need to find another drama with him fast! lol

                    • Ah, yes. AGD doesn’t have much of a story, really. It’s more like a bunch of anecdotes strung together by atmosphere. You kind of need to be in a particular mental space to consume this drama – at least, that’s how it worked for me. Once I dialed my expectations to simply almost-mindless entertainment for just before bed, I was much better able to enjoy the show, even in the face of the terrible aegyo.

                      I suppose it’d be challenging to get your hands on another JDG drama, considering that before AGD, the latest one was AAE, in 2000! All his other shows are even earlier than 2000, and those old shows are notoriously hard to find. On the other hand, you might be interested to check out his movie Friend, since Friend 2 (with Woobie!) is coming out soon? At a vintage of 2001, I’m thinking he wouldn’t yet look so skinny in that either ^^

DF’s recent reputation is for over-simplified subs, so I suspect the Chuno subs are from the early DF days when they got fansubbing groups to agree to allow them to use their work. I believe the Chuno subs that DF is using were done by Mr. X, who famously used very exacting olde English-esque translations to bring out the full flavor of the original dialogue. Those are the subs I’ve got as well, and while it took some getting used to, I did come to appreciate the flavor and nuance it added to the entire Chuno experience ^^ Those subs wouldn’t be everyone’s cup of tea for sure, especially those who don’t do well with olde English! :P

                      Yeah, I’ve found that when drama fatigue occurs, it’s usually coz I’m surrounded by meh dramas. A good direction to take is exactly what you said – clear away all the middling, meh dramas, and sink your teeth into something good.

Besides the obvious Woobie factor (he’s SO cute!!), there’s also the reunion of the boys after White Christmas, and that just made my day. Seriously, seriously made my day. Coz while I didn’t exactly love the dark tone of White Christmas, I loved the characters and their rapport, and it was SUCH a treat to see them together like this, having fun and goofing around and hanging out together, doing boy things and just generally having a good time. Ahhhhhhh!!!! I think I’m going to update my White Christmas review with these as bonus videos, seriously. It’s too good!! :D

      And how much do I love that the show keeps referring to Woobie as Topstar! XD I mean, I don’t know if he’s legitimately a topstar yet, since he’s also widely known as a rookie (ish), but I just LOVE that a program would refer to him as Topstar Kim Woo Bin, coz they’re acknowledging his amazing progress and popularity, and that just makes me happy ^^

      I tried to watch the MBC video, but it’s been blocked already *sadface* I should’ve watched it sooner, when you’d just posted it, but I was busy and now that I’m trying to watch it, I can’t. Boo.

      As for Young Do.. I’m hoping that the story gives him credit too. Plus a part of me is hoping that the writer will pull a switcheroo and make Woobie lead instead. Coz I do think Young Do is so much more compelling a character than Kim Tan. Chances are slim, of course, but I can’t help hoping. In any case, lots of people are sitting up and taking notice of Woobie, so yay. And more and more people are calling for him to have his own lead role soon, which I am SO looking forward to, too!!

In any case, it was nice to see a little more of the boys’ rapport as they hung out together, and that’s such a rare thing.

      Also! It’s nice to see Woobie doing his hosting gig for Mnet! I think he does a nice job of it, adding some energy to his speech patterns without morphing into a different person. And yes, he looks delish in that crisp white shirt!! You know me and crisp white shirts on handsome men! ;D Swooonn~~

    • This reminds me of a video I’ve seen before where he was the emcee. What’s cute about it is that he danced while the artist was performing. Forgot what it was.

      • Omo! He DANCED?!??? @.@ I’m just imagining the adorkable awesome!! He doesn’t strike me as the dancing type, his body doesn’t have the fluidity that I associate with dancers. So in my head, his dancing is a little stiff and awkward, and completely adorable! XD

  47. ..yeah…they did as much as seeing the four gorgeous guys having fun i felt that it was scripted after all…but then they got what they want and that is to make Woobie pisses off…since he is the well-known star among the four they are testing Woobie’s patience…seeing Woobie in irritating face makes me want to comfort him though…LOL!..

    ..and him doing the Mnet gig…he’s just so good looking!…he carries himself well even in hosting…i can see a multi-talented Woobie…<3

    • Aw. Yes, I felt bad for Woobie that they were ribbing him quite a lot. It would’ve felt less all-against-one if someone else had been on the receiving end at some point, but it was always Woobie that they were scheming against, and I felt sorry for my Woobie boy..

      I’m actually pretty impressed at Woobie’s performance hosting Mnet. It takes quite a bit of confidence and personality to host something like this, and it’s kind of a more “switched-on” sort of personality than his usual interview persona, where he’s more measured, thoughtful and mellow. I like how he manages to be more “switched on” and yet it still feels true to his usual personality. *proud of my Woobie*
