  7. Hi Jung Hyuk! My name Nick name is angie. I think you are a superb and gorgeous actor. For the first time, I watched a Korean movie, I have to say I enjoyed and loved watching you in Fated to love. It was very romantic, and it made me laugh and cry. I also enjoyed you in Iris 2, it had a lot of action. I hope to see more Korean movies with you in it. Thank You for taking time out to read my reply!

  8. Really enjoy watching this drama, FTLY..
    Keep up the good work, Jang Hyuk & Jang Na Ra..

  9. Is Daemang a good drama to watch? Or should i start with Thank You?

  10. Thanks for the infor. Wld you know whether he studied performing arts/filming etc? He is a talented actor and v dedicated. Bcos of FTLY, i started to look for his previous dramas and movies. One of the few talented actors from Korea that brings to live the characters he plays in. Cant wait to see his next movie and drama.

  11. When will be released the drama mozart romance of jang hyuk?

  12. hi, i would like to have the movie, thorns’ script if anyone willing to sent it to me. bye20121@hotmail.com
    tq so much in advance

  13. coffeenlucia

    Never won a Daesang?! But he’s so talented………. he SHALL win one in the future, I can just smell it. Maybe in his upcoming drama Fated to Love You remake.

  14. Looks like you can add Thorn to the list now 🙂 What do you know about “Age of Innocence?” I’m curious if he’s a main or secondary character. Can’t wait to find out more about this movie (and hopefully see it in Theater).

    • True! We know he plays an important character but not the main. He will be Yi Bang Won aka Lee Bang Woon when he was a prince. He is king Taejong. You know him from Tree With Deep Roots (King Sejong’s father)

    • And I also can’t wait for that!!!!!!! chounaaaaaas Jang Hyuk! although he won’t be chouna but prince but I can’t wait to see his beautiful royal outfit and playing such a cool and controversial character!

      • Ya. I think it should be really interesting. I’ve been meaning to do some research on the Joseon Dynasty because I only know what I see in dramas (and I’m not sure how much is factual and how much is fabricated).

        2 episodes left of TWDR btw.. I’m so scared. There’s a lot of negative forshadowing 😦 Ddolbock!!! T.T

  16. I watched Winstruck last night. I thought it could have been a lot better but Hang Hyuk was still really adorable. I would have like to have seen more character development on him, but I thought he did well with the role and the lines he was given. We didn’t really know that much about him except that he really loved her and he was very sweet. I liked the scene which forshadows what happens later, when he talks about being the wind. It wasn’t the best movie, but it still got to me. I cried a lot. It was really sad and towards the ending it reminded me of the movie ghost.

  17. Oh you look lovely just the way you are! 😉 You’re very welcome, it is well deserved!

  18. Greetings!!

    I’ve nominated you for a Liebster Award! *throws confetti*
    Please see the link for details!
