So I woke up to this 🙂 The event where Jang Hyuk presented his new book took place and he looked like this:
Initially I got confused with the title of the book but hyuk fan cleared it up and I quote her:
“Hi Drama Fan, the literal translation of “열혈남아”, the title of his book, is Hot Blooded Man. Hyuk says he borrowed the title from a Hong Kong movie that he liked when he was younger. “As Tears Go By” was an English title of the same movie. “열혈남아” has connotations of someone who is passionate about something. Think of it as, so passionate that your “blood is hot’,”
“I was a child during the Hong Kong film Tears, very impressed with the work I saw,” he said, “Also, my favorite word is passion. Keep the fire burning passion and the will to want to go I want to contain in the book ‘Tears’ summed it, “said Jang Hyuk.
Hyuk fan also suggests that “Passionate man” could be a good interpretation of the title.
Hyuk fan and Gumi translated some of what was said during the interview
Jang Hyuk spoke about his “fail” in a recent episode of Real Man when he was defeated in a wrestling match after only a minute.
Jang Hyuk: It was between two masters
MC: Two masters? No, it wasn’t
Jang Hyuk: Oh yes it was, he was really
MC: Well, yes he is, but not two masters
Jang Hyuk: There were 138 offenses and defenses
MC: You said 140 before
Jang Hyuk: 138 on the ground and two on the air so that makes 140 😀 Stop talking about this, do your job, continue with the questions.
MC: This is my job. This is bringing us somewhere.
Jang Hyuk turns around as asks “Hey, who brought him as an MC?”
MC: You personally called me remember?
There is a video skip
Jang Hyuk: Ok, yes, I lost, so what? I lost but I will win someday (and this part got cut off from my message aghh, but I think this is when he mentioned he was traumatized by his defeat)
MC: Well then, I hope you become a great writer who wins in wrestling
Jang Hyuk: I will, and I will write a book in wrestling when that day comes
A couple of facts
- He wrote his book of autobiographical essays over the course of a year
- I also read the book contains stories that he never made public before. Ohhhhh we want to know!!!!!
