    HE IS MY FIRST KOREAN CRUSH OF ALL TIME!! <3

    I still remember being so engrossed when I watched Chunhyang on Arirang way back 2002. I was just 5th grade on elementary back then. I love his acting and the story and the culture.. It was then I first fell in love with the upstarting Hallyu fever.

    And now fast fowrward to STRANGER, omg... you dont know how many times I have to pause my screen so I could breath normally whenever I even tiny slight different emotions from your beautiful face.

    Thank you. <3 looking forward for more of you :)

    Such a nuanced actor. Talented and charismatic. He can really hold your attention. Really impressive in Stranger/Secret Forest.

      Agreed!! Was just watching him in Stranger, the character he played had so many minute nuances and he played him brilliantly!! Such understated acting yet so much depth to it, after a couple of episodes, watching him became a fascination...I actually rewound the episode to catch his expressions!
