Officially Smitten With: Lee Junho

Listen. I know that you guys have been urging me – for literal years now! – to revive my fangirling posts, whether by way of a k-love post or a Pure Pretty post. And for years, I’ve just been saying vaguely that I’d think about it.

The truth is, I just wasn’t feeling inspired to do any fangirling posts. You just can’t do one of these things properly, if you’re not feeling properly inspired, y’know?

Honestly, I’d kind of thought that perhaps I’d outgrown my fangirling phase. After all, I’d been concentrating on putting out all this other more “serious” content, like reviewing shows, and answering Dear kfangurl questions, sometimes on controversial topics, even. I thought, maybe I had just become.. immune to intense fangirling..? HA.

I WAS SO WRONG, y’all. Several weeks ago, out of the blue, almost, I found myself joining the rest of the world in falling for Lee Junho’s charms. I feel like I blinked, and suddenly here I am, knee-deep in spazz.

It’s official, y’all. I am utterly and completely smitten with this man. 😍

The Road to Smitten

Clueless beginnings

Because I’ve always been a kpop noob, my introduction to Junho was when I watched Just Between Lovers.

I thought the show was very solid, and I was impressed with his acting, but.. that was about it. I moved on to other shows, and admired other male leads, and life went on as normal. I also checked out Greasy Melo, but didn’t enjoy the show all that much, and so never came around to his romantic leading man charms in that.

The Red Sleeve stirrings

AND THEN, several weeks ago, when I posted my episode 6 notes for The Red Sleeve, over on Patreon, and we basically collectively became one big spazz puddle, that’s when things started to shift, for me.

Up until that point, I’d been enjoying Junho’s smolder very much indeed, in The Red Sleeve, but it was after episode 6, when everyone on Patreon started sharing behind-the-scene snippets, that I started to sit up and pay attention.

My YouTube algorithm sat up and paid attention too (heh), and that is how I’ve had a crash course in many things Junho, in the last few weeks.

The turning point

The turning point, for me, was literally this clip of Junho’s segment in episode 397 of I Live Alone, which I posted to Patreon, to share with everyone.

I loved this clip so much – particularly of him snuggling with his (absolutely gorgeous) cat Jani (some subs say Johnny) – that I went and watched the entire episode (on Viu here), ..and whaddya know, I found myself absolutely mesmerized.

So many things to love:

Here’s a quick rundown of the various things that I find myself loving about Junho, from what I’ve learned in the last few weeks.

1. I love that he’s so talented.

He’s literally a triple-threat, as they say. He sings, he dances, and he acts, and all with equal dedication and dexterity. He even writes music! Which.. makes him a quadruple threat..?

2. I love that he loves his cats.

And all other animals, too, it seems like. I especially love how he snuggles with his kitties. 😻 The idea of Junho as a snugglebug makes my brain implode slightly, not gonna lie. 😍

3. I love that he’s so disciplined.

The fact that he has that gym installed in his apartment, and makes it a point to work out every day (except Sundays), is something that I find pretty inspiring.

Also, the more I see of his work behind the scenes, not only in terms of acting, but also, in terms of his music career, I’ve come to appreciate just how much comes down to the discipline to practice, practice, practice. Watching him, I’m inspired to practice my music more, which I think is a super cool side bonus. 🀩

4. I love the way he dances.

Guh. You guys. I have never taken an interest in kpop much, if at all, even when I’d taken an interest in actors who are also idols (like Eric, for example). Mostly, I’d check out some of their kpop performances just to satisfy my curiosity, and quickly move on.

Not this time, my friends. I find Junho spellbinding to watch, when he dances. I have never been into fan-cams, but have watched multiple fan-cams of him in the last several weeks. I’ve also watched 2PM’s “Make It” video and its multiple variations, and even the making-of videos. What can I say? Junho is art in fluid motion, and I can’t tear my eyes away, when he’s on my screen.

And the first time I glimpsed that, was when he practiced his dance moves in his living room, during episode 397 of I Live Alone.

These screenshots don’t do him justice, because he’s so beautiful in motion, but man, his body lines are so smooth and perfect, even though it’s a casual dance practice in his living room, in front of his cats.

Update: My YouTube algorithm must have known I was looking for it; here’s an actual clip from the episode, of his dance practice in his living room!

I love how precise his moves are, particularly for “I’m Your Man.” I think he makes it look better, without the belt. SUCH CLEAN, PRECISE LINES. 🀩

5. He’s really come into his own.

I don’t know Junho from before, but there is a lot of Junho content out there, since he’s been an idol for 15 years, and one of the things I’ve noticed, is that he appears to be a lot more confident in his own skin, compared to before.

I’ve pieced together from interviews, that he’s an introvert at heart, and he hadn’t liked his personality, and that had been the thing to spark his interest in acting, when he’d been in elementary school (I think it was).

Earlier video clips of him with his 2PM mates, show that he was a bundle of chaotic energy a lot of the time. Now that he’s back from military service, though, I feel like he’s got a completely different sort of energy.

To my eyes, he appears much more settled and confident in his own skin, like he’s fine with his introverted core now, and I love that, so SO MUCH. ❀️

Multiple shades of Junho

Given that Junho’s been an idol for 15 years now, there is a heckuva lot of Junho content available on the web. I’ve only picked my favorite photos for this photo gallery, and even then, it amounts to more than 200 photos (I know! 🀩).

I hope you guys enjoy. ❀️

Animal lover

This is one of my favorite things about Junho. He always seems to be so naturally drawn to animals, whether it’s his furbabies at home, or a stray cat on set. He looks so genuinely happy to snuggle with all of these furbabies; I find it incredibly appealing.

My favorite shot of this collection is this first one, where he seems to be locking gazes with a baby Jani. Ahhh!!! How precious is that?!? 😻😻😻

Boy Next Door

This section is all about Junho’s boy-next-door appeal, which I’ve sometimes seen also classified as “Junho as your boyfriend” – which is an idea that I’m very happy to indulge in, HA.

My favorite shot in this set, is this second shot, of him in the kitchen. Doesn’t he look like he’s happy to cook you something, to make your day better? πŸ˜‹πŸ€©

Ethereal

I find that Junho sometimes looks literally incandescent, in some of his photos, almost like he’s a magical creature of some sort.

My absolute favorite shot in this section, is this second photo. It looks like a normal photo of him at a train station or something – except for the fact that he looks lit up from within. Gorgeous. 🀩

Fabulous in Red

Junho’s wardrobe people know what they’re doing; they keep putting him in red, and he looks amazing in the color. 😍😍😍

My favorite outfit of his featuring the pop of red, is this first one. That deep, rich red is so beautiful, and the fabric looks so soft and cozy to the touch. 😍😍 And when he dances, it just moves with him so easily. I LOVE. It’s arguably my favorite of the various outfits I’ve seen him in, in his various music videos.

To help prove my point about how amazing Junho looks in red, here’s the fan-cam of him performing “My House,” which recently went viral, long after the song first debuted.

DANG. He’s just SO schmexy in this. πŸ˜πŸ˜…

Flail~.

Focused

I like focused Junho too, and in this small section, I like this first shot most, because.. well, there’s just something about a man concentrating on something that just gets my knees. Or at least, the sight of this man concentrating on something gets my knees. 😁

Fierce / Intent

I love me some fierce / intent Junho too, and in this section, I’m most taken by these first few shots of him at gun practice. I don’t care if it’s pretend; he looks badass and capable to me, and I love it. Even his back view looks cool. 🀩

Pensive dreamy

I think Junho looks absolutely fantastic in this section.. he just seems to fit the pensive dreamy vibe so well. Is it because I think of him as a person with many thoughts?

My favorite picture of the set is this first one, because I feel like he’s showing more of his recent maturity, in this shot.

Performer

Like I said earlier, I find Junho spellbinding on stage. He just has this focused sort of charisma about him, through all of his performances, which I really dig. And of course, it doesn’t hurt one bit, that he’s so good at what he does. His form, as he performs all of the dance moves, is completely impeccable, and I love it.

It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I do think I have a soft spot for the photos of him with glasses. That preppy touch somehow makes him even sexier? I don’t know how that works; it just does. 🀩

Playful happy

As much as I love me some serious, focused Junho, I also very much enjoy him being playful and happy. And my favorite picture of this set, is the one where baby-him and present-him are contrasted, both smiling that megawatt smile. CUTE~! 😍😍 And consistent, too! 😁

Relaxed

Because Junho works so hard, I love seeing him be more relaxed, too. And my favorite shot of the set, is this first one. I just like how laidback and relaxed he looks.

Plus, the jersey looking top, paired with those slightly baggy pants, looks like just the kind of outfit he could suddenly break out in dance in, and still be perfectly comfortable. 🀩

Sageuk glorious

Since Junho’s role as Yi San in The Red Sleeve is the catalyst that got me to first sit up and take a fresh interest in Junho as a romantic leading man, I thought it would be remiss of me not to have at least a small section honoring his sageuk glory.

I think Junho looks fantastic in his royal garb (and out of it too, cough – but we’ll get to that later).

My favorite shot of this set, is this first one, where he’s being helped with his blue dragon robe. This was the scene in episode 2, where I decided that Junho as Yi San is both cool – and hot. πŸ”₯

Sensual

Sensual Junho is a force to be reckoned with; there’s just something very.. potent about it all. I love this first shot for how effortless it is, but I also love the shots of him in the green woven vest. So very alluring! 😍😍

The Sharp Suit

Junho cleans up real nice in a sharp suit, and here’s a bit of evidence. I find it even sexier when he’s in motion, but since this is the stills section of the post, these will have to do.

My favorite is this first one of him sitting in a chair, with his full profile visible. Doesn’t he look like art?? 🀩 SUCH a gorgeous profile (more later)!

The Sharp White Shirt

I tend to have a weakness for a handsome man in a crisp white shirt, and therefore, Junho in a crisp white shirt makes my eyes glaze over. πŸ˜…

I love-love-LOVE this first picture, because he looks like art come to life – while wearing a crisp white shirt. 😁 The smoldery shots of him grabbing his tie are also my faves. 😍

Shirtless

Given that 2PM are famous for being beast idols, and that they used to take off their shirts as a matter of routine, there is a LOT of shirtless Junho content out there. Out of all the shirtless pictures of Junho that I vetted for this post (the dedication and hardship! πŸ˜‚), these are my favorites.

And my favorites, are, of course, the most recent ones, from his bath scene in The Red Sleeve. So lean; so sculpted; so beautiful. 😍❀️

Smoldery

Junho wears smoldery oh-so-well, and I love it – as you may have guessed, from the title picture that I chose for this post. 🀩

I love this first picture in particular, because it’s so effortlessly arresting. All the other ones are great too, of course. Because, how do you pick a favorite smoldery Junho..? 😍

Sporty relaxed

Junho’s a spokesperson for Xexymix, along with the rest of 2PM, and here are my favorite picks, of his Xexymix shots. My favorite of them all, is this first one. He looks so relaxed, and yet, so effortlessly sexy. There’s a touch of come-hither about his gaze, and I swoon, seriously. 😍😍

Also! Xexymix makes great active wear for yoga & pilates (I love their leggings!). And I didn’t even buy them because of Junho. πŸ˜‰ How cool, that I already like the brand that Junho’s endorsing! 😁

Sweet

I love me some sweet and gentle Junho too, and this first pic is a fave, because he just looks so sweet and natural and cozy. 😍 Also! Doesn’t he look great in red too (further down)? 🀩

Smiley

Junho’s got a great smile, and his eye-smile is the cutest, most adorable thing. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I do think I like this first one a little more than the others. He looks so naturally, offhandedly, casually happy. 🀩

That lip bite

While doing my research for this post, I realized that Junho’s lip bite is a lethal, lethal weapon, and that I’m helpless when it’s on my screen. Particularly when he’s in motion. Then I’m toast.

Among these shots, the second one is my favorite, because it doesn’t even look like he’s doing the lip bite on purpose; it just looks like he’s trying to concentrate on studying a script or something, and was called to look at the camera. πŸ˜‹ Still so schmexy tho!

That profile

Junho’s got a gorgeous profile (and gorgeous bone structure! 🀩), and I had to showcase it a little bit, with this section.

I love all of these, honestly, but if I had to choose, my two favorites would be, 1, this first one where he’s washing the car, because we get a full body profile, AND he’s wearing a beautiful crisp white shirt, AND we get to see the profile of his very cute tush. SO MUCH TO LOVE. 🀩🀩🀩

And 2, I also really love this second shot. It’s just a candid shot of him having his hair touched up for a shoot, and yet, he looks positively ethereal. GORGEOUS. 😍😍

Candids

I love candid shots because they show more of someone’s personality than posed shots. And among these ones, I love this first one the most.

Not only does Junho look amazing in that outfit, with the sharp shirt and tie, he looks spontaneously happy and a little bit cheeky. Love the finger hearts and the eye smile, even though we can’t see his whole face because of the mask. 😍

I also find the second picture, of just his back, inexplicably sexy and alluring. 🀩

Video highlights

I thought I’d also share some video highlights, since those played a big part in my recent Junho education.

I can’t share everything I watched, of course, or this post would never end – and also, this page may run into (more) loading issues. πŸ˜… These are just my top picks, from among the videos that I watched.

Performances

I picked these few performances because:

1. This first video, of Junho performing “My House,” is a recent thing. So, older song, but performed with his new maturity. I love it.

2. I seriously love 2PM’s new song “Make It” (it lives rent-free in my head), and I think the choreography is really nice, and Junho pulls it off so effortlessly, and with such precision. 🀩

Also, for the record, I think I’m liking 2PM’s vibe now, more than when they regularly tore off their shirts onstage. They feel more grown-up now, and the sexy feels so effortless, like, they don’t even need to do the shirtless thing, to be sexy. πŸ”₯

3. I couldn’t resist including a fancam of Junho performing “Make It” because he’s wearing that amazing red sweater in this one. 😍

4. I couldn’t resist including this fancam of Junho performing “A.D.T.O.Y.” because, well, just look at his arms. They are mesmerizing. Combined with the rest of his killer precision moves, it’s utterly spellbinding. 🀩

Photoshoots

I personally enjoyed watching these behind-the-scenes videos of a few of his photoshoots. I love how he’s able to pose so effortlessly before the camera. He makes it look easy – and that’s definitely from his years of experience in the industry.

PS: The videos have English subs, just make sure that you have cc enabled.

Other fun snippets

1. I thought this little game segment was fun, because it gives us a look at some of Junho’s personal preferences.

2. I liked this little interview because we get to hear his thoughts about a variety of things, from food, to his comeback with 2PM, to his thoughts about acting. I like the thoughtful vibe of his answers, even when it comes to lighter topics, like his cats.

3. Last but not least, this is the behind-the-scenes vlog that started it all for me, over on Patreon.

And in case you didn’t know, that’s from his own YouTube channel, which you can find here! I love the content he uploads. I’ve been happily watching his various vlogs.. all in the name of research. 🀩 HA.

Closing thoughts

Ahhh. What can I say? Junho’s got my heart, hook, line and sinker. After almost 15 years of thinking that I might possibly have kpop immunity, I am now officially ceding that kpop immunity to Junho. πŸ˜…

If you know me at all, you’d probably know that this is a Huge Deal. 😁 You know it had to take someone very special, to do this, right?

YOU are that someone special, Junho-sshi, you amazing, talented man, you. I hope you’re ready for long-term residence in my fangirl heart, because, uh, I’ve already moved you in..! ❀️

Update! I’ve got thoughts & screenshots to share from Junho’s fan meeting, here! 🀩

I missed our spazzing moments so visited the site and never thought I’d see a long and giggly post of an idol. Reading this made me so happy chinggu! Kpop idols have so much content online, especially the more senior groups like 2PM. Their reality shows are a great way to have an idea of their personalities and mostly funny too.

I watched the Red Sleeve because it’s about YiSan, I wanted to watch the Lee SeoJin version but never got to it. I remember seeing Junho in Twenty and the interviews for the movie. I remember thinking who is this idol and why did they put him with Kang HaNeul and KimWooBin, was what Iwas thinking. I wasn’t into KPop and I just left it at that.

But the end of episode 5 hooked me. Wow. His acting really blew me away. From the way you write, I think we have the same taste. And I love Just Between Lovers too.

His dancing, yes.
His discipline, omg.
His love for animals.
Now that he settles down in his introvertness, I do look forward to his shyness, impatience, outbursts of hyperactive-ness.πŸ˜„

At first I really say his music is not for me, bit now I keep going back to it because I can’t get enough of his dancing and his voice.

Hi KFG,
It was fun reading your fangirling over junho.. I have been his fan for years..
Some points are missed
1. His buttπŸ‘..πŸ˜‚
2. He have a good heart. He have been sponsoring a kid from Ethiopia for many years.. and also sponsored money for making water facilities available there. And he have been donating money for childcare and healthcare.

You should definitely watch “good manager” drama.. it’s really fun.

And a music video called “icecream”.. in most of his music videos he shows handsome sexy things.. but this one is energetic and cute.. a complete different vibe..

This was a really fun post to read! Clearly Junho has lots of fans. I never really noticed that Junho looks like Rain but I can totally see it now. I hope all the interest in 2PM will mean that the group will continue to promote together even though two members (Taecyeon and Chan-Sung) are no longer with JYP.
Also welcome to the world of K-pop/K-music! I started watching Kdramas first and then became more and more interested in the music. Now my Spotify is full of K-Pop, K-R&B, K-Indie, and K-Hip Hop. I am glad that your love for Junho finally persuaded you to check it out.

Hi Kfangurl,

Thank you so much for this post. I agree with everything you have said. I too am smitten with Junho and have been stalking him so much on Youtube recently that my Youtube suggestions are filled with Junho and 2PM. Haha. I have bookmarked this page so I can visit again and again. I hope he gets to see that he’s getting so much love from the global community also and can’t wait to see him in his next project. And of course I love the fact that he loves his cats and calls them his babies. I too am a cat lover and also consider my cat my baby and so I can totally relate. More love for him for being a cat lover. πŸ™‚

Anyhow I’m glad your k-love is back after 6 years and hes straightaway in the main list? Impressive! I need to go watch me some Junho now…

Well, KFG, I think I finally found my words. No promises though πŸ˜‰

  1. One of the reasons he is so dedicated to his fitness routine is that he sustained a pretty intense shoulder injury during dance practice when he attempted an acrobatic move. He said if he does not work out especially his shoulder, it will pop out. I believe he has six holes in his shoulder from the surgery . GAH! So he is definitely dedicated to exercise.
  2. He shared that in High School that a teacher said he looked just like Rain and “all the girls” came running to check him out and were not kind to him because they did not think he looked like Rain at all. I thought that was particularly cruel and he said it did affect him. How could it not? Guess he proved them all wrong with his hard work and dedication as he matured into his own skin. I think he and Rain are friendly or friends or something.
  3. I knew he was something special when I saw him in Just Between Lovers which I watched because of your review. So hopefully, one day, maybe he will thank you for your review of that Show πŸ™‚

Hello! I found myself nodding non-stop while reading your post because I, too, have been recently fangirling over Junho-ssi (sadly I cannot call him Junho oppa as he’s younger than me).

What started out as a typical k-drama bingeing (TRS) morphed into an unrecognisable craze over this perfect human specimen! I’ve watched and re-watched so many YouTube videos of Junho-ssi and 2pm, as if to make up for lost time. I totally agree with you that his dancing is just so mesmerising! I could watch his dance videos all day every day. 

Sharing 2 of my favourite videos of Junho-ssi –

OMG! I have been stanning Junho for almost a year now since I saw Just Between Lovers. What I thought was just a simple crush on an actor has turned into a full-blown fangirling over this super talented and gorgeous man. So when I say I completely understand how you feel, I mean it. Really, the more you know about Junho, the deeper you fell for him. I thought I was immune to Kpop too, but look where I am now –completely amazed by his solo and group (2PM) discography. And Junho on stage is its own kind of mesmerizing. Aside from the fact that he writes and produces his own songs, he’s also very involved in conceptualizing his concerts which are all a great watch. Love that many people are discovering him. Gosh, he really is something else.

I’m surprised you didn’t dedicate a section for one of the biggest things he’s known for and proud of, his ass. I never noticed it at first but then I noticed how in Greasy Melo those slacks hang off him so well and accentuate his butt. Now I can’t help but keep noticing it though it seems to have disappeared with all that dieting.

Fun trivia, he complains of his lower back hurting while sleeping because his ass is so big so there’s little support for his spine. LOL.

Dear KFG Dear everyone,
I saw this post around 4 am (Italian time) and I watched and re-watched it for hours without being able to sleep….πŸ˜…

First of all my cell town was filled with a fog that prevented me from thinking for quite a while….πŸ˜…

This post is so poetic, it’s description of such an amazing character and personality through the collection of these photos that I thought Jun Ho should be able to read it…. If I were him I would really enjoy it.

Since as I have said several times he is too hot and cool for me to manage, would any of you know how to get this post to him? maybe there is an email from his agency? or on social? and KFG what do you think? does she authorize us?

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Ok, I can’t stop giggling. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. πŸ˜‰

I’m afraid I’m past spazzing and flailing about actors/kpopsters but I really liked Junho as an actor the first time I calpped eyes on him in Chief Kim. Of course I knew him as part of 2PM way earlier but as 2PM was never one of “my” kpop groups, I didn’t particularly pay attention to him before. Yeah, he is gorgeous and cleans up really nice. (I’ve noted before that many Korean males look absolutely fab in suits) That said, these days my admiration of eye candies is just that, I like looking at anything that is pleasing to the eyes, be it buildings, scenery, clothing or a presentable example of male speces.^^ The most endearing feature of Junho is his love of cats though. 😻

I must admit I’m one of those shallow people who decided to watch TRS after the teaser showed this magnificent and ethereal being exuding light from every pore of his existence, like you said KFG. I had to know who this man was, who resembled Ji Chang Wook from SO many angles, and then some of early-day’s Rain (mid 2000’s?), in others. Safe to say, my heart-eyes for this man has grown ten-folds over the duration of the 17 eps.
He is a cat-dad to FOUR kitties? Okay, I’m SOLD!😍 I wouldn’t exactly call him ‘beast-idol‘ material because I’ve known Wonho from Monsta X for far too long. xD But his self-discipline is really inspiring. 

This dude right here has MAD acting skills. There’s this one finale scene where Junho refuses to have before-hand knowledge, just to express his emotions as his character as authentically…. (who was taken by surprise). What can I say, I have a massive competence-kink, and Junho ticks every box of it! Thanks KFG for this carefully curated gallery of spazz-worthy photos! Indeed a gift for the fangirling-heart! πŸ’–πŸ”₯

Especially since I’ve watched Jun ho in Wok of Love (blech Greasy Melo is right 🀒) and The Good Manager Kim and didn’t care one way or the other about him. We shall see…

@seank I want to spazz & flail too but I’ll be very surprised if Red Cuff changes my mind. I think that going beyond a 20-year age difference might be the reason my jets have cooled. Maybe that’s the reason for my waning interest in K-drama. All of my fan-girl crushes are now considered ahjusshis and they just don’t seem to be getting cast anymore πŸ˜₯ (Side note to my Oppas -you’ll always be Oppa to me!)

Oh wow thank you for this amazing fan service, we all have been swept by a wave called Lee Junho and your collection just made my day. As you already mentioned he is a triple threat with acting, singing and dancing.
I am not sure if you have seen this one but he recently had a special performance as a part of a song festival on “Senorita” with a fellow kpop idol turned actor Im Yoon-ah ( you might know her from The K2)

omg gal you said it all..my heart is full of junho thesedays.. and thank you a ton for all the pics you have uploaded..and I had this wide smile while reading this blog..its like there is someone who is in deep just like me. you did full justice to junho .what an amazing performer and all rounder.

I first saw junho in “rain or shine” few years ago back then I Dropped it even though I liked him..but the show which made me sit up and take notice of him was “chief kim/ good manager” … its a must watch show for anyone who is into junho..he plays a grey character and wow what a great screen presence he had in that show . I was totally smitten by him. After that I kind of moved on till “the red sleeve happened” and again I was pulled into junho magic with full swing..it was then I went back and finished rain or shine, then his dance videos , home alone videos and it went on and on and see am here…

indeed he is really special thats why your 15 year of fangirling immunity is broken and its worth it isnt it.

Ahhh what can I say! Your post just made my entire day! I’m a kpop noob too, and just when I thought I’m way past over the age of fandoms,Junho happened and now I’m in deep. The amount of time I spend on YT watching videos and clips of Junho is toxic.πŸ˜† I beat myself up for not knowing him earlier, feel like so much time wasted especially when I read post from long time HOTTEST being able to follow 2pm and Junho’s career early on.

At one point I blame the person who told me about Junho’s cats..hehe, it’s what draw me to him. Then I heard about the song he made for his cat Rambo, who died, and there is no turning back for me. To borrow your words, I fell for him- hook, line and sinker 😍
Here’s the song:

The Multiple Shades of Junho was a total swoonfest! It absolutely filled the Junho shaped void The Red Sleeve has left in my heart after it ended. Thank You again for this 😍

His crooked smile did me in…Watched Just Between Lovers in one week just to get my Jun Ho fix and loved that drama too. His performance in The Red Sleeve is mesmerizing.

Plus, he looks good even in a parka. I was reminded of Jang Hyuk in Money Flower, and that’s saying a lot!πŸ˜€

Thank you heaps and heaps Kfangurl!!! What a lovely compilation! I enjoyed it immensely. I, too, have admired Junho for years, although in a sedate way, however your post with all those photos (and videos) is getting me more excited for this talented, disciplined young man. All the best to you and may we all enjoy many more good years with the delectable Junho!
