Noh Min-woo rocks out

Rock drama special Boohwal has undergone a name change. It’s now called… wait for it… Rock Rock Rock. (Geddit? Is it…maybe about…ROCK?) The first set of stills released from the set show leading man Noh Min-woo rockin’ out like it’s 1985.

It’s probably more like 1979, but by the high school uniforms, you’d think it was the 50s or something. Those hats always throw me. What I like about the stills though, is that they actually show some acting potential from Noh, who is, let’s face it, mostly known for his very pretty, but expressionless face. I think his two facial expressions in My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho were angsty and constipated. Oh wait. That was the same face.

*Ducks for cover*

But here, he’s showing some intensity, and not of the forced kind, but of the I-will-battle-you-with-my-kickass-guitar-skills kind, which is totally winning me over. I sort of wish it were a musical rather than a music drama, because in the still below, he seriously looks like he’s about to break into a song-and-dance number, like Grease-meets-West Side Story, and it’s awesome. The last still, where he’s totally into it, kind of kills me. It’s so cute.

But the hair? I can’t explain the hair. I mean, what’s with piling it into the middle like a sideways toupee? It makes me want to rip it off his head. If they’re going with the full hair-rock thing, I sincerely cannot wait until we get the stills of Noh Min-woo in long, flowing locks. That? Will be a sight to behold.

Rock Rock Rock is a four-episode drama special, a biopic about the life of Boohwal lead guitarist Kim Tae-won. The stills look like they’re starting early in Kim’s life, which is cool, because he was known as that whiz kid rocker who could play Led Zeppelin’s guitar riffs in middle school. He also wrote his first song at sixteen, the first of about, oh, 47 million or so.

Rock Rock Rock has been pushed back two weeks, and will air December 11 and December 18 on KBS.

He's just so pretty and a talented musician, isn't better for the universe if he isn't also an amazing actor? I mean they can't all be JGS. I still remember when he first showed up on Gumiho, I did a double take, he's that stunning. In a drama full of beautiful people he still stood out. I feel that putting him in dramas is the next best thing to someone immortalizing him in marble. Do we know anyone who could get to work on the marble thing? I'd take one for my nakaniwa.

I LOVE his ANGSTy scene. I think No Min Woo angsty expression is his strength in MGIG... seriously.... I cried for his char in the last episode just because of his briliant acting during angsty scene... his eyes killed me..!

I'm not into his character in MGIG until they showed his angsty scene.. I cried in MGIG because of two character.... Miho, and Dong Joo..

He acted with his eyes... If they will decide to create alot of his angsty scene in this drama, God.... it will be kills me completely...

This article aroused my curiosity on school uniforms in Korea (I recalled that my cousins did not have to wear school uniforms in the mid and late 1980s), and so I went right to research. The signature black uniforms remained pretty unchanged through the 60s and the 70s and all the way up to the early 80s. But citing that the school uniforms was a remnant of the Japanese occupation in Korea, the law was changed in 1982. Starting for the incoming students in 1983, school uniforms were banned. Then in August 1990, due to pressure from parent groups, the Ministry of Education "strongly encouraged" schools to return to the use of school uniforms and thus, school uniforms were revived once again in the 90s.

Since Kim Tae Won is a 1965er, he falls under the last generation of students who got to wear the old-school uniforms.

I've always wanted to wear that sailor-style uniform for girls. *Sniff, sniff.*

My middle school started standarized dress during my last year there. We didn't have one in high school, but I sometimes wished we had uniforms instead.

I hate that comb-foward, made me want to cringe. But did make me think about Donald Trump's hair. I prefer his pompadour.
His character in MGIG left me wanting more from him - other than being an angsty gumiho hunter. So I'm looking forward to this drama special.

Yeah. i think the problem is the character in MGIAG. His previous drama characters showed more emotions and led him to have a major role in MGIAG. However, Dong Joo has less emotion except for the angsty face and poker face~ He's suppose to show less humanity thus the stuck up face. lol he was a good eye candy though. XD

I guess Boohwal would be too in your face if it's about Kim Taewon, hm. But title now is NOT to be taken seriously.

Oh well, I'm really anticipating this cos No Minwoo is a pretty awesome musician, I've seen some of his covers and they were really rock, rock, rockin..

Not weird, because I do too. I watch a lot of jdrama and the hair style reminds me of jrock movies. Where lead guitarists/singers will have this kick ass undecipherable coifs. That said, the inner fangirl in me can't help but think that he'll look hot no matter what.

errrm in MGIAG he had his shortcomings but the most emotional scenes were between foxy hunter and Gumiho

what bothered me the most was the speech somewhat forced - partially because of his char... that should look righteous and old .... but still was forces in so many scenes

sometimes you could see that the scene is acted and hasn't even a shadow of natural flow - we could see that from a mile distance - but I blame here a lil on PD -his main task was GuMiHO and DaeWoong while ppl already loved Park Dong Joo with all his flaws and all his villain deeds -oh w8 we have a similar char in MSOAN where Jung In (Kim Jae Wook a pretty good actor otherwise) looks a lil bit constipated - it depends a lot on the char and the vision of the scriptwriter+PD above the char in question
GuMiho or Mary wouldn't look extremely cute if on screen wouldn't be a char to highlight their cuteness

I actually agree with you. I think the character was the source of the stoic image since dong joo is not completely human. His past characters weren't like that and they are full of emotions. I guess, a change of character may prove his skills.

he can act even very well but he has his flaws -some of them pretty big when it comes about the acting

if he couldn't act his scenes wouldn't matter at all... but in his 10 min per episode in MGIAG he was noticed... a lot ... in klala land there are thousands of pretty faces ... even prettier than he is ... that are unnoticed at all... just because they can't act
