The many faces of Road No. 1’s So Ji-sub

With just a few more weeks till MBC unveils its Korean War drama Road No. 1, here’s a look at star So Ji-sub in several of his guises as the main character, Jung-woo. The melodrama boasts a hefty production budget of 13 billion won, large-scale battle scenes, and heart-wrenching romance between the leads, So Ji-sub and Kim Haneul. (Rounding out the love triangle is Yoon Kye-sang, who falls for the girl and fights alongside the guy, playing the classic part of the third wheel.)

Filmed and produced almost entirely in advance, the drama has currently shot 90% of its footage. Road No. 1 premieres on June 23, just shy of the 60-year anniversary of the outbreak of the war on June 25.

@ #12

"I just love this man"

Really, you love this man? How long have you two known each other?

Or do you really know what love actually means?

Don't trivialize the term.

What you prob meant to say was you loved his performances, or maybe more superficially, you love his physical appearance.

But by saying you love him, you're implying you have an emotional connection with him. Which I doubt actually exists.

@13: Many visitors of this blog are not native English speakers so if someone writes down that she loves some actor/actress I think that means she likes him a lot.

lol, @13, perhaps you have had a traumatic past regarding relationships

I personally don't think you need to have that many connections with someone to actually love them, but of course all readers should know that fans use the word "love" quite loosely with regards to celebs. I think admiration is a better term or OBSESSED lol.

He looks pretty good here, I just might watch this drama.

Is he supposed to look that orange? You can visibly see where the foundation stops. Eeks! I hope the lighting for the actual drama makes it seem more natural. If not, that makeup artist seriously needs to learn how to match foundation colors to faces better.

Is he the one who played in the drama "Who Are You?" with Go Ara? He looks a lot different somehow. Or is it another actor with the same name?

Likely amazing drama , solid casts , i'm interesting in this kind of K drama , as the
brotherhood of war . Seoul 1945 is good drama too , but casts are a little bit weak in acting , love story in that drama is not interesting but political situations during
K war are interesting , the true color of communist stated to show since then , in Seoul 1945 if they had different casts and love story different it would be more
realistic to watch , the pianist and the young communist lead actor should be in love but their path of life , their ideology different that why they can not be together ...
i hope story in this drama is more realistic and touching .

@13 starscream.. I have noticed you from your past posts on this site, you always put other bloggers down with your negative comments. That is not nice at all. Please let us respect each other, but do not bash other people and especially do not judge them so easily based on what was posted on this thread.

The way the classic love triangle plays out against the backdrop of war reminds me of the plot of Pearl Harbor, starring Josh Hartnett, Ben Affleck, and Kate Beckinsale (again, I'm comparing the two plotlines, NOT the actual wars themselves). Although I wasn't fond of that movie, I did enjoy the brotherhood between the two male leads, so I hope this one will portray the same type of relationships. I, for one, am sick of the jealous-third-wheel-saboteur characters.

@Starscream

Is it too much to ask not to turn this into your personal rant blog? You seem like a sharp cookie, and your argument could very well be valid at a different kind of forum, but this is more of a communal, welcoming site where people come together to share their love of Korean dramas and films.

Whhhooooooooo! ^___________________________^

I really love So Ji Sub that he's really AWESOME job at his acting like that from other these drama or movie, either! =)

Hahahaha! You really made me so laughs -- TO #13 Starscream -- I hope you will learn how to behave and more realizing what you say something so mistake and you don't need to say that to other people's comment next time --- because some of people's comment about So Ji Sub that it's no matter what they still love him like me, mm.
** Don't make them to become mad at you cuz' of this is what you are saying that before.** Okay!

Oooh! I love So Ji-sub, toooo!

However after seeing the trailer I'm a wee bit put off, there's far too much Kim Ha-neul in it, a naked one at that.
For SJS though, I'll still watch it. However I'm already watching two of the heavier dramas from the current crop so will have to marathon this later when one of them finishes.

OH GOSH! O_____O

He's really something.......ohhh....he's really, like, something so cool and charming --- IMPRESSIVE. (sighs)

# 13 - Starscream --- (snickers) it made me so laugh.....Aiyoo.....BUT it's very harsh what you say something like that, you really........I agree with Cam, but you must be careful what you would say something like that and don't let things to become so worse, you know. ((it means other people from comments will become upset, disappointing, nor angry about your terrible negative comments)) Don't be like that and belittle to other people -- Please respect and learn from your mistake what you will be realize, okay. May God bless you =)

haha, whoa, this post turns out to have generated quite interesting comments. and since english is a second language for me as well, i second what @15 has to say and since we are all here with one thing in common that is our 'love' and passion for korean dramas, lets just all enjoy ourselves. there's nothing wrong in saying you love these actors, tho you haven't even met them (or in my case speak their language)

anyway, the trailer looks good and promising-tho' there's no sub, and as predicted it'll be very heavy and dramatic. yes i have to admit it's a lil pearl harbor-ish, and is it too early for me to be rooting for yoon kye sang's character? haha.

hmm I might go back and forth between SJS and YKS while watching this. Two intense brooding guys who happen to be delish. Unfortunately I am so not a KHN fan. I wish it was someone else like one of SJS's previous leading ladies.

SJS does look very orange here perhaps too much carrot in his diet or over zealous Hollywood tan?

@ 13: killjoy much? i get so much secondhand embarrassment from your posts--- it's like you're the only one who doesn't get how hostile you come off as, when this site is full of people who stop by just for a little insight, a little sisterhood and a little spazztime. seriously, man, shove off if you're just going to put everyone down. you've never had any good good thing to say. AND you nitpick on the SLIGHTEST comments that put you off. well, you know what? YOU put me off. CHILL.

oh, and @12:
I LOVE LOVE LOVE HIM TOO!!! :D *high five*

@13: what's wrong with " I just love this man"?

I love K-drama, I love this site, I love Javabeans, I love Javabeaners who gives sometime to read the article and make comment even when the comment out of the topic, or make others javabeaners feels unpleasant, so perhaps I love you too, starscream...the kind of type of comment like yours make this site even more interesting to read....

Simply I just love you all, ha, ha, ha....
