The actor wanted to steer away from the public’s perception of him in his pictorial, he will play two characters in one role, the pictorial conveyed the idea of the upcoming drama.

He gave off both sexy and chic vibes for each photo he strived to change his facial expressions. The outfits and accessories also helps him convey the characters more clearly.

In the interview part, he discussed the upcoming drama and admitted,

He explained his statement,

“I think that if you see Jang Geun Suk more than the character, then it will disturb its flow. I am ambitious and would like to become a trustworthy actor through my acting in this drama.”

My Thoughts

Jang Geun Suk has a loyal huge international fan base that will support his decisions and acting projects. With all honesty, I never thought that he truly lived up to his full potential.

I have seen all of his films and most of his dramas. In one of the films he’s done he plays the bad guy, for the first time, I saw him in a different light.

My problem with Jang Geun Suk is that he relies on his looks a lot. He is an actor with great potential but he’s often marketed as the ultimate flower boy. I always believed he was more than that.

Reading this interview, I was very happy with what he said. I am glad he sees that he needs change desperately, the older he gets the less he will be able to rely on his good looks. He needs to prove to people that he’s a great actor. I know he has it in him.

I am excited about his upcoming drama. I am crossing my fingers hoping we won’t be disappointed.
