Lee Jung-jin in High Cut (…in bed)
by | January 24, 2011 | 73 Comments

Mrowr. This is an Lee-Jung-jin-looking-mighty-pretty post, so I may just run out of brainpower halfway through it. Something about this man just makes my brain shut off, leaving me with just enough energy to drool. Um, figuratively speaking.

So here we have a photo shoot for High Cut magazine, in which Lee Jung-jin is lounging around, cavorting on a bed, baring chest and belly and boxer shorts. Also looking mighty carefree and happy, which is like a cheap shot to get us to Awww over him given how tortured and hurty he was in his last drama, Runaway Plan B. There there, Mr. Hot Scruffy Cop, Rain will make it better.

(Seriously, their bromance is a thing of beauty, though altogether WAY too short-lived in the drama, and underdeveloped. The Runaway special was pretty hilarious, though, with the entire first fifteen minutes basically acting as Lee Jung-jin’s love letter to Rain. It was awesome.)

These days, Lee Jung-jin can be seen in the KBS2 reality show Qualifications of a Man… which I’ll have to get to watching right away. (Is it any good, variety watchers out there?)

And here my brain shuts off so I’ll have to sign off and go stare some more.

      same here! Soo Ae and Lee Jung Jin’s characters’ friendship with each other in 9 end 2 outs made me wish I had a male friend whom I’ve known since I was a baby. need to rewatch the series now.

      • 1.1.1 stars4u

        It made me regret going to a girls’ highschool!!!
        Loved the story of their friendship… and the letter to their future selves, I wanna try that…
        I just got the whole series this month… whenever I see Su Ae in Athena, I miss her bubbly character as Hong Nan-hee!!!

        • Soo Ae

          Thanks for introducing me to 9 end 2 outs! I’m watching it now and I love it to pieces. Lee Jung Jin is oh so sexy there and has great chemistry with Su Ae. They just act so naturally…they are too cute together!

    • 1.2 hookedonmonix

      Aha, that’s who he is. Loved him in that. The other day I actually went back just to watch their kiss->uncomfortable elevator ride->kiss->really cute shy grinning talk. Fighting the temptation to go watch it again…

    • 1.3 mems

      Ah, Hyung-tae looking mighty fine. Of epic studly proportions.

      Did that even make any sense? Just…forgot…English…GAHHHH

    • 1.4 yui

      i love him since watching love story in harvard…XD

    • 1.5 hapacalgirl

      Same here!!! I loved him and SooAe in that drama. I actually should rewatch it when I have the time.

  2. Jenju

    I can’t even begin to say how amazing the picture of him laughing and pulling at his shirt makes me go all melty and fuzzy inside…

    I have never been more in love with a pair of Calvin Klein briefs…

    • 2.1 maechan

      maybe someone can fantasize about the second picture… with the red tshirt… wich looks just like it says “..beans” (it’s obviously Jeans but let’s play-pretend it’s dramabeans.. or javabeans… ) lol

  3. boylovescat

    Hold on, I wonder if he has choco abs? I could not tell from the pix

    • 3.1 Linda165

      Maybe this will help you:

      • 3.1.1 MAVY

        I just had a heart attack! really my pulse is going up and up up and up……! I’m not even watching the picture any more….. Dear God, you know how crappy last year was can I please get one just like that for valentines.. screw the chocolate I want the chocoabs ๐Ÿ˜›

      • 3.1.2 Codie

        lol. That isn’t Lee Jung Jin. That’s So Ji Sub, fyi.

        • Bori

          Whoa there.
          That looks NOTHING like So Jisub.

  4. dee

    -wipes drool-

    sorry, my brain was lost in the pretty.

    • 4.1 teapot


      No idea at all what jb meant by figuratively speaking.

  5. luraaa

    Oh yum. I first saw him in Love Story in Harvard, but he was overshadowed by Kim Rae Won, and he was the manipulative second lead, which made me not like him more. But seeing him in 9 end 2 outs totally made me see the light (digressing– Tangled, anyone?) that was hindered by Kim Rae Won’s charm.

    Oh Lee Jung Jin. That’s all I can say.

  6. Kender

    Mmm, Lee Jung-jin. Yummy. A friend of mine claims Qualifications of a Man is good, but I haven’t gotten around to watching it yet.

    And random, but he tweeted a pic of himself from the same sequence of shots as the last one you posted. ๐Ÿ˜›

  7. Diane

    HAWT. Whoo! Mamma mia! ;P

  8. Blotchick

    well, yep… qualifications of men is a good show and very funny… kim tae won is always making fun of this guy since he seldom talk, hehe

  9. ohemgee


  10. 10 Lily

    Is it wrong that I him in MY bed?
    I have to say I kind of miss the scruff, lol

  11. 11 Lily

    Is it wrong that I want him in MY bed?
    I have to say I kind of miss the scruff, lol

  12. 12 Sly

    Is he taking a page from Kim Joo Won? SPARKLY underwear! Hehe

  13. 13 goldenflower

    omg, that second picture.. teasing.
    that last picture, just too fun. I’m imagining he can be quite fun.. @@

  14. 14 UJ

    okay this guy is awesome but the first pic reminded me of this


    and then i wasnt able to concentrate any further ๐Ÿ˜€

    • 14.1 HalfALu

      I don’t know if I’m just having a crappy day, but when I clicked on your link I started laughing sooo frickin loud. It’s so random – love it! Totally wasn’t expecting you to compare him to that!

      • 14.1.1 UJ

        hehe ๐Ÿ˜€

    • 14.2 Selcaqueen

      Now I won’t be able to take the first picture seriously anymore, thanks to you! *laughs uncontrollably*

      Oh, thanks to you again for this is my first ever post here on dramabeans. =p

  15. 15 yix

    just delightful and decadente to my eyes… @.@

  16. 16 Scarrsm

    Qualifications of men is a MUST-WATCH!! It’s really awesome, the reason for Happy Sunday to be so popular. I doubted that show once, but it’s actually really funny.

  17. 17 lovenyc52


    this man is smexy beyond words….

    i want a Hyung-Tae with a happy trail tooooo

    …and now the pretty has made my brain functions short out….

  18. 18 Sengo

    Qualifications of Men is a very entertaining show because the guys are hilarious but it also depends on the mission they’re assigned….some are better than others. It’s too bad Kim Sung Min was booted off the show last month because of his drug arrest. He should’ve known better. Hope he can get his act together and make a comback.

  19. 19 snow

    mmmmm what a sexy photoshoot. he should be doing more of these, take the clothes off while he’s at it…

  20. 20 come2noona

    OMG love him. Naughty thoughts…

  21. 21 rich

    If I saw this earlier, I could have not felt sleepy at work at all. XD Gaaah! XD

    I kinda felt sorry for him at Runaway Plan B. I never expected that kind of ending for his character…

  23. 23 ditdut

    WHY CAN’T HIGH CUT BE SUBSCRIBED OVERSEAS????? For a 300 won newspaper, the pictures alone are worth it man.

  24. 24 leonardswench

    Way too many clothes on that man …

    • 24.1 lovenyc52

      AGREED~!!!! lol. such a tease ๐Ÿ˜›

  25. 25 Steph

    Dear lowd, so fine!

  26. 26 Christy

    rawr! ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. 27 evie

    Oooh… *slurp* I’ve been waiting to see these pictures since he tweeted photos of him on the set of the shoot. And Qualifications of Man is pretty entertaining – the best “mission” they’ve done so far is definitely the choir one. No yummy Lee Jungjin in that, but the last instalment had me bawling like a baby.

  28. 28 doozy

    When I saw only the title of this post, I thought, “javabeans’s tagging on ‘in bed’ whenever there’s Lee Jung-Jin!”

    And then, I scrolled down and saw the photos and the literal meaning made it even more hilarious! ahahahahah

  29. 29 elle loves kdrama

    can’t think straight anymore…

  31. 31 Ani

    Oh hotness, say-my-name!!! Why is it I can just picture jb photoshopping herself into some, if not all, of these pictures? HAHAHA.

  32. 32 Daniela

    Iยดve never seen the guy before, but his photo shoot is really awesome. The pictures are great. The laugh, the hair, the poses. I want those sunglasses.

  33. 33 bee

    he looks amazing in bed. can i have him, please?

  34. 34 rhea

    He was the sole reason I finished Love Story in Harvard!Fine,fine man!

  35. 35 YoSoyHaru!!!!!!!!!!

    my fave eye-candy I totally drool over this guy too :d…

  36. 36 Beng

    oh my gulay!!! i wish the magazine is distributed here in the Philippines. He’s perfect!!!

  37. 37 pabo ceo reom

    It’s funny you bring up Qualification. I actually watched a few episodes just so I could get some more Lee Jung-jin loving. Honestly, he doesn’t do much on the show! lol. The show was standard variety affair so I don’t think I’m following it or anything. But I seriously could use him on my screen some more.

  38. 38 steph0019

    why do guys have to show off their boxers and make our brain shut off..

    I just actually read this article because I think JB will have a funny reaction to this.. but I was caught in myself..:)

  39. 39 JJ

    i fell for him since love story in harvard then 9 end 2 out & i love you don’t cry….he’s hawt….he’s one of my top 10 K actors! ummhhhh…i like that a brain shut off! ๐Ÿ™‚ luv him!

  40. 40 Carinne

    Hmm ~ something about the color orange sending a Joey [So, how… you… doin’..?] my way. I think my blood pressure risen where my Victoria Secret lacey boy shorts cover. [Did I just speak that outloud?] ^ , ^!

  41. 41 ri


    awwww nice to see him all smiley. and just hawt. qualifications is pretty fun. he’s like the face of the show really. hehe. but he is awesome to the older cast and really super nice. which is like super additional brownie points to a already funny and sweet guy.

  42. 42 kdramaffan

    I loved him more than Rain. I’ d like to see him again. I love his big laugh in the second photo.

  43. 43 f

    now i know why i fall in love with (s) cause he looks like Lee Jung Jin!!! hahaha!!! I loved him in 9 outs … haha!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    One of the Korean actors I adore so much.. First of course is Kang Ji Hwan!! Javabeans, Ji-hwan sshi is mine!!! hahaha!!!

  44. 44 MsRetta


  45. 45 sleeplessinwgtn

    Wow, he looks even younger than when he filmed 9E2O. Loved that drama, too. Their acting was so natural and the story is so awesome, could really happen in real life.

  46. 46 giddy

    I’ve watched several eps. of Qualifications and it does depend on the mission. The choir one was amazing and the learning to dance from 2PM and SNSD concert episodes were other entertaining ones. But LJJ is quiet on the show and I thought he actually left the show (was it due to Fugitive: Plan B?). Is he back on the show?

    Off topic: for variety shows, I prefer “Happy Together 3” when they have the cast of of a drama on, and “2 Days 1 Night” (I feel like I know each of them personally). “Qualifications” is mostly old guys, LOL.

  47. 47 Om nom nom.

    oh! snail trail! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hot… Hot… Hot…
