We’ve seen training photos of Kim Bum, star of SBS’s Dream, and now we turn to one of the lesser characters. Here we have Hyun-woo, member of pop group 24/7 and part of the “Flower Fighters” crew, which is the team of hard-bodied, good-looking athletes that includes Julien Kang, Marco, and singer Chung Lim.
These latest shots feature Hyun-woo in fighting form as he trains in mixed martial arts. He also attended action school to beef up his training regimen, often working out for up to nine hours a day. His new tough image as “Narcissus” (his nickname within the Flower Fighers) shows him in a wholly new light from the cute, romantic image he had portrayed in the sitcom Tae-hee, Hye-gyo, Ji-hyun.
Dream is really banking on its hot cast to draw some attention, isn’t it? The tactic has worked to some extent, but not well enough: it hasn’t translated to ratings, and none of its four aired episodes has risen past 6%. Still, if you’re watching, I suppose you may as well enjoy the eye candy.
Dream airs on Mondays and Tuesdays on SBS.
