Seriously! Gumi and I can’t keep up with him! Between Real Man , photoshoots, interviews, appearances on TV, commercials, he is making us work work work! But that actually makes us happy 🙂
Update to add: He also wrote a book! 😀
TV Spot: Jang Hyuk filmed a TV Commercial for Shin Ramyun Black along with Yoon Sang Hyun (see this post). The concept of the commercial this time is “Shin Ramyun, Whenever and Wherever.” and it started running in Korea today.
This is not the first time that Jang Hyuk represents this brand
Here is an Ad he did before. Yummy!
Just as a side note, a previous Shin Ramyun campaign featured international superstar Psy. Also, I read that Hyungshik and Ryu Soo-Young from Real Man have done another Ramuyn Campaign. Our Real Men are popular these days!
Comedy Show: Another news that started circulating is that Hyuk will participate in the Variety/Comedy show SNL Korea, next month. This show is based on the iconic american television show Saturday Night Live. I suppose he will be the host for one show, assuming they follow the american concept.
I must admit that ,at first, this idea sounded fantastic to me. It is something I had fantasized about when I learned SNL Korea existed. But Gumi warns against high expectations since this cable show from Tvn channel, has decreased in quality in recent times. I figured it had to be cable, since this concept is very “adult” and controversial, a bit raunchy, not compatible with Korean network TV.
Here is hoping that the show is funny at least during Jang Hyuks episode 😉
Possible movie: Jang Hyuk is considering the lead role in a “romantic thriller”? called Strawberry Milk. It is the story of a student who falls in love with her gym teacher. You guessed it! Hyuk would play the teacher
All is good except this movie will be directed by Kim Tae-Kyun who worked with Jang Hyuk on Volcano High. I am not a fan of that movie and it seems that his other movies weren’t particularly succesful either with critics or in terms of popularity. So, for the moment I am not loving this idea but there really isn’t much information to judge and I will not worry until Hyuk confirms his participation 😉
Book: And last but not least! This is very exciting! He wrote a book titled Hot Blooded Man which I assume will be sort of autobiographical? OMO OMO OMO! CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS! my best motivation to learn to read korean. The book will be presented in an event in Korea, on August 6. More information on the book here
