It’s so nice to wake up to Jang Hyuk news and especially if they are accompanied with gorgeous photos. This time the stylist did a good job in taming “the hair” so it is easier to focus on his handsome face.

Here are some excerpts from the interviews: (translation by Gumi)

He mentioned he does not plan to be a regular on Variety Shows anytime soon. He mentioned he wants to to do a “special project” every 10 years. And that project will be a one time thing.

Q: Kim Sooro recommended you to do theater. Do you want to try it?
A: I do have admiration for the stage. But as of now, I’m more attracted to portrayal through video.

He said “Real Men” was a healing experience for him “It wasn’t because I wanted to do Variety shows that I chose to do Real Men. I wanted to reflect on my past and have a good influence on my future. It definitely wasn’t only for fun and quitting was also a careful decision. It was not easy”

Actress Soo Ae says Jang Hyuk is the best partner she has worked with.

Soo Ae, who acted an infection specialist InHae in a movie The Flu, revealed her satisfaction with the collaboration with partner Jang Hyuk (who acted JiGoo).

In the beginning of the movie, JiGoo saves InHae in danger, starting their cute romance. After, they together fight against deadly virus spreading quickly. SooAe said “Filming ‘The Flu’, I exceptionally felt that we were doing it ‘together'”, describing how all the cast and crew worked in exact same mind.

She elaborated on Jang Hyuk, saying “He is amazing as an actor, but is even more as a person. There were some hard times for me. If he approached me as a fellow actor at those times, then I would’ve had to be formal with him as well, but he approached me as a nice ‘oppa’, so I felt comfortable around him. We tell each other, ‘We should meet again in a romantic comedy.’ I really want to try acting with him again.”

(It is also quite possible that I’m making this up)
