Hyuk Update: A recap of his most recent activities


Hi guys! We haven’t updated the blog often lately,  but our dear Jang Hyuk is still as active, hard-working and gorgeus as ever haha! He is quite the energizer bunny. I wanted to do a little recap of his activities during these months, after he finished filming the historical drama Shine or Go Crazy and the movie Empire of Lust was released.

CHINESE OPERA TIME! (where he was turned into a Golden prince doll!)

On March, he went to China to participate in the reality show Ding Ge Long Dong Qiang. This reality reunited chinese and korean celebrities who received training to put together a traditional Chinese Opera. Among the korean celebrities were Jang Hyuk’s friends Kim Jongkook and Jay Park. Jay was actually part of Jang Hyuk’s team along with chinese singer Summer.

One of my favorite moments of the show happened in episode 2 when Jang Hyuk did the spear exercise perfectly. It starts at minute 46:36

This is the final episode where you can watch their energetic and spectacular performance.

You can watch the complete show without Eng Subs on Summer’s youtube channel HERE.

LITTLE PRINCESS ARRIVAL (I can’t stop the awwwwwww)

Then, on April 16th, his baby girl was born! And us fans/aunties let out a collective Awwwwwww! Jang Hyuk’s  first baby girl! As you know he has two sons already. Ever the protector of his family’s well being and privacy, there are no public pictures of his children. So we can only imagine her! Does she look like mom or is she a little Hyukie with pig tails? Awwwww no matter what, this was undoubtedly the happiest event of all for him.

Imagining Hyukie with pigtails! :p

This was Sidus HQ statement at the time ““He is very happy for the birth of his daughter. He is scheduled to go to China to film a movie, but thankfully, he was able to see the birth of his child beforehand.”

TAIWAN FAN MEETING (Them lucky Taiwanese fans!)

I don’t remember if this was before or after baby girl was born, but he had a Fan Meeting in Taiwan. We found out he cut his hair and he looked like this.

INSIDE OR OUTSIDE (Wherever you please dear Hyukie)

On April 20th he started filming the chinese movie “Inside or Outside”, next to renowned chinese actors Simon Yan and Wallace Huo. The movie is an action thriller. According to Soompi “Jang Hyuk will be playing the role of Wu Geom, a successful elite who is the CFO of an IT company. After having suspicions that he might not be the father of his daughter, he finds out his life is in danger during the process of digging for the truth”.

Oh my! It sounds very exciting! This movie is expected to be released on September 2015.

WELCOME TO AJINCOME! (Where you get Hyukspammed by the man himself)

It was also around this time that he opened an account on Instagram, much to the surprise of many since up until now Jang Hyuk was not very active in Social Networks. He already had  a Weibo account but wasn’t too active on it. Apparently he decided to do this on a whim. God Bless your passionate impulses darling! Ajincome posts  selfies (he has become so much better with them) pictures of actors he likes, places he sees but the best part of his posts are his brief adorkable comments. They all carry his particular style, a certain poetic  tone, but are mostly playful statements, often accompanied by a wink and/or a heart. A nice simple way to be close (but keep an appropriate respectful distance) to his fans. You can follow him at https://instagram.com/ajincome/

WITH A LITTLE HELP, FROM HIS FRIENDS

After the movie, he flew to Croatia to film the travel show “The friends in Croatia” with Shin Seung Hwan and Choi Ki Sub. According to Yahoo Entertainment, Jang Hyuk said:“I have 18 years of friendship with Shin Seung Hwan and we worked together on drama ‘Shine or Go Crazy,’ and although it hasn’t been that long since I met Choi Ki Sub, who is a member of the famous non-verbal performance group Ongals, I hope to share a deep friendship through this trip.”

This was Jang Hyuk’s airport fashion when traveling to Croatia

From the pictures shared on instagram we can see that the friends had loads of fun! Walking endlessly, learning about Croatian culture, and especially enjoying the local food! Knowing Jang Hyuk’s appetite, this will be an interesting and mouth watering watch :p YUMMY!

GAEKJU (or the reason we won’t sleep much in the next few months)

Recently he was confirmed to take the lead role in the historical series “Gaekju” based on the novel of the same name by Kim Joo Young. Other members of the cast are Yu Oh Seong, Kim Ming Jung and Han Chae Ah. We hope to get more information and dedicate more posts to this drama, but for now this is what we know.

  • It’s a story about peddlers and merchants, not royalty (for a change)
  • It might have 36 episodes (more Hyuk for us!)
  • Jang Hyuk plays the role of Bong Sam, a commoner who against all odds, becomes one of the richest merchants in Joseon thanks to his remarkable skills for business (and women also fall for him like flies, are we surprised?). Of course given the times and his position in society, his journey will be a tough one (We love underdogs. Jang Hyuk rocks as one. Win Win!).
  • The sageuk will air on Wed and Thur on KBS and will follow drama “Assembly”.
