Hi friends! I was looking for something else and I stumbled upon this article and thought this would be something cool for us to discuss. It has a couple of more quotes from the Allure Magazine interview that will be released in August.
He talked about his life as an actor: “I find many things enjoyable at work. But when I was young, I was always serious and worked with a militant mindset. I used to like having alone time to think and analyze things, but now I prefer meeting and chatting people. I find it more fun to listen than talking these days”
When asked about the role that he would like to try, Jang chose ‘Choi Dae chi’ from old K-drama ‘Eyes of Dawn.’ He said, “If ‘Eyes of Dawn’ is remade, I’d really like to play ‘Choi Dae chi,’ a man who just lives on with no reason. His time stopped, the world’s clock still ticking so he has to follow like a river. I was more attracted to that character, probably because he has many things in common with my previous character ‘Lee Dae gil’ from ‘The Slave Hunters.’ I’d also like to try a character with a physical disability or a severe villain.”

I find myself fantasizing about roles I would love Jang Hyuk to play!
- An antisocial but brilliant musician or composer who “learns” to love kind of late in his life and he is terribly awkward about it. He could play the piano and/or guitar in a rom com/drama and this needs to happen soon, so people remember that he is much more than an “action” actor
- Another Doctor (like in Thank You) but in a medical drama, like House
- A badass bounty hunter in a post apocalyptic world (it would be Chuno, sci fi style) Abs and action are a must!
- A King!
And I love his idea of playing a person with a physical disability and a severe villain. Kudos to Jang Hyuk for always looking to expand his horizons as an actor. Do you guys have any ideas? Share them here! This could be fun!
