Jang Geun-seok rocks out for Mary

KBS drama Mary Stayed Out All Night, set to air next month, will be Jang Geun-seok‘s fifth time playing a musician. Most of those previous instances featured him as the leader in a band, and this time’s no different: He plays Mu-gyul, the free-spirited lead singer of a Hongdae indie band.

(Those other roles were: a rock band singer in Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do, a rock band singer in The Happy Life, an idol band singer in You’re Beautiful, and a talented trumpeter in Beethoven Virus. I might be more worried about Jang being typecast if he were a mediocre actor, but he’s shown a good amount of range despite his still-tender years (he’s 23), whether he’s portraying youthful innocence, hauteur, boyishness, or criminal tendencies.)

The scene pictured here was filmed in the Seoul district of Hongdae, and in the drama takes place on November 8 — the show’s actual premiere date. Pictured is the band that takes its name from its leader, Totally Mu-gyul (완전무결). I guess I can see why they’d take that name if he is the creative engine of the team (a la Dave Matthews Band or Jang Ki-ha and the Faces), but I wonder how the other dudes feel about that. The others are: Ri-no on second guitar (played by Kim Min-kyu), Yo-han on bass (Geum Ho-seok), and Reo (Leo?) on drums (Park Chul-hyun).

Jang said about performing in front of fans, “Opening up the filming set to the public before the drama premieres isn’t an easy thing. But the producers discussed it in meetings and decided to film it with the fans in order to make the scene feel more vivid. Filming is going so well and the fans cheered us on so enthusiastically that I’m happy. I’m still worked up right now. I truly give my thanks to all the fans.”

The songs sung by the Totally Mu-gyul band will be on the drama’s OST; perhaps they’ll rival the A.N.Jell fervor of You’re Beautiful fame?

Indie rocker is always rough and sexy totally opposite boy group like DBSK. Ohhhh this rocker thing kind of sexy. With his rough voice, I am definately going to do him... Cant's wait.

JGS, I love you.. pretty face and all.

I can't wait to hear the new songs, I've always enjoyed JGS's voice.

I saw JGS at the Westin Chosen in Seoul (we were both waiting for the valet to bring our cars - he drove a very modest Samsung) and he did absolutely nothing for me in person....but on screen, the kid definitely has charisma!

When it comes about kdrama, try to watch more than one episode. For me sometime need 4 episodes of kdrama series to start liking it, but sometime just 1st episode it is already engaging. If after 4-5 episode, I still can't connect, it means that's just it, not my type of drama. Maybe I still can manage to finish watching it but in loooooong period, I hate dropping series in middle of the way, and not knowing the ending. And sometime, I did cheat: trying to see how it end with reading recaps in dramabeans. hee

It is not that bad, but not that good either, it is manly sexy :) I can accept that he sings in public or a consideration he could have made an album, cause I have heard some trying-so-damn-hard-to-be-a-singer actors who have voice much worst than him. With decent but acceptable voice and THAT cutie face, JGS surely can sell an album. But That Hair Heh

hopefully MSOAN would turn out to be the crack drama of the year. the previous MV and stills don't look too promising for me, and based on the scans of the manwha i have checked thus far, the story is a bit lame..? but i have faith in JGS. if he chose this project then there must be something good in it.

and yay for that concert pic! definitely no trace of JGS' previous characters in there.

I think the band name "Totally Mu-gyul" (완전무결) is a play on words since 완전무결 means "absolute perfection" and Jang Geun Seok's character is named Mu-gyul.

lol. YES! though his little pout/snarl was so endearingly over the top! And his outfits...

You know, the guy deserves mad props for getting so many fans by acting HTK. If you think about it, neither his hair nor his clothes nor his snarl were even remotely attractive. And yet here we all are fangirl screaming and signing up for the ICOMYM club because of him... (I still love the idea of that club. It makes me giggle when I think of it)

random but i've been reading the manhwa on daum [which is pretty decent both story wise and art wise] and the name of the band was strawberry corpse. i usually wouldn't be so uptight about the change in name but the name plays a pretty big part in mary's initial view of mugyul, how they end up meeting for the first time and the first conflict that ensues between the two. so this makes me wonder just how closely they plan on following the actual manhwa...

hmmm...im going to have to try not to compare the two. FML for deciding to read the manhwa.

haha. I read the Goong manwha after I watched the show, and it wasn't too bad. The art looked pretty weird after the beauty of Fruits Basket, though.

Fruits Basket has officially set a ridiculously high standard on any other comic I read now. My mentality is "If Furuba could tie the lives of 14 characters together perfectly in 23 volumes, you better be able to tie 2 freakin characters together in that amount of time!!!"

I no longer have patience for long mangas. Plus mangas/manwhas are translated so much slower than dramas are subbed! It can take them months to get a single 32 page chapter out sometimes. And the pages are 90% pictures!

Honey, you make a great guy, but a god-awful girl. Anyone else think his stylist is sabotaging his look on purpose because she wants to keep him to herself? lol

Yes! But quietly, of course, so it doesn't seem extremely awkward when we just happen to save him from a bunch of crazy fans. Not that we're like that...

His look in BV and the "Toucholic" MV are pretty similar. I think he looks a lot younger and more childish in BV, though. His hair is shorter and his face looks rounder. (He has it gelled beautifully in the MV) It could just be because he _was_ younger and chubbier back then...

I know the fervor is a lot on Jang Geun-sook, but is it weird for me (a girl by the way) to be in this for Moon? Okay, I admit, Moon AND that sexy-yet-too-femininely-pretty-for-my-taste-sometimes Kim Jae-wook. *sigh* I like Jeun Geun-sook but I fell in love with Moon's acting abilities (and this coming from someone who doesn't know the first thing on how to tell if someone is a good actor or not) and can't wait to see her put her skills to use once more.

as someone who also has trouble discerning a bad actor from a stiff character, I know what you mean. My friend and I looked at each other and went "Waffle Sunki and JGS in the same drama? Are they waiting for us to spontaneously combust????"

The casting is so spectacular, everyone's excited for every actor. But you can't help but spazz over JGS here :) Can you imagine the spazzing that'll happen once the recaps start coming up?

a) he's never the same type of singer twice
b) he can actually SING, and
c) he won't friggen come out with a friggen album so the only time he has new songs is when he friggen acts. (Can you tell I want him to come out with an album eventually?)

Eagerly looking forward to this series. Have always been scared of dramas with too much hype. But MGIAG had the same hype surrounding it too..

And well it turned out to be reeeaalllyy good(except may be the last couple of episodes but who cares abt messy endings). So I am keeping my fingers crossed about this one. I am banking on JGS and Moon completely. If they chose the script, there must be something really good in it.

And JGS oppa is the only actor who can pull off this pretty but manly look. He looks amazing. May be the hair, no never mind, I like his entire package ;)
