Ryu Jin’s Thousand Kisses

A Thousand Kisses for Ryu Jin? Yes, please. Hopefully with me involved somehow.

Too bad we’re just talking about a drama title, which will take up a weekend slot on MBC come August. And I fear that we’re looking at another second-lead role for Ryu Jin, which is great from a drama’s point of view since he’s so good at it, but sucky for those of us who want him to end up happy and not alone. (He’s currently being alternately adorable and swoony in Baby-Faced Beauty, where he’s the quiet, gentle, but stern boss who’s a single divorced dad to a kid who adores the woman he won’t win, Jang Nara. You’d feel worse about that if Daniel Choi weren’t so devotedly sweet.)

A Thousand Kisses is a drama about a woman who divorces (Seo Young-hee of Bedevilled) and faces all kinds of hardships on her way to success…which sounds an awful lot like that other upcoming weekend drama, Hooray For Love, which briefly starred Jae Hee before he dropped out due to injury.

Ji Hyun-woo plays the other male lead, and it seems like he’s in for another noona romance (Birth of the Rich, My Sweet Seoul). I suppose when you have an adorable puppy-dog face and demeanor, it’s what works for you.

A Thousand Kisses will replace All That Glitters (aka Twinkle Twinkle) on Saturdays and Sundays.

Sob... I guess I'll have to see Ryu Jin not getting the girl again. If only Call of the Country was a bit better and more popular, it could have totally boosted his career and possibly made him get lead roles. Oh well, at least I get to see him. I'll just convince myself that his character is not destined to be with the lead lady because I'm actually suppose to fatedly come upon him and be his true love.

well if Call of the Country and I really liked both that drama and his character in that one! didn't help boost his career then BFB has done with its number one rating, but he is married with children and perhaps simply not really interested in being a lead {thus more work/pressure} and happy to always get work as second lead. After all being the lead, doesnt mean you always going to get work and a good support actor never out of work.
And BFf 18 he shows of how manly man he is fisty cuffs at dawn with his rivel..lol

Yup. I'm also watching BFB and I'm still rooting for him although I know it's useless. :)
He is way better than Daniel C. I mean Daniel's role is so much childish and irritating when RJ's playing an absolute charming prince. :D

I have to disagree Daniel Choi is not immature or childish in BFB, the problem is that this drama is so focus on the ages different that a normal 30 something is make to look and act like their are 50. In the world of K-drama he very mature for a 27 year old man. I don't know what most people consider immature but completing army duty, getting a job, and living by your standard and not you parents and protect you love from your boss who seem to think his action is appropriate when in my world it very disrespectfully. President stated he have feeling for Seo Young but he while aware that she in a relationship with Daniel his arrogance it really over the top. It not due to Daniel being immature it due to Seo young lack of maturity and confident to defend her love.

i agree w/you, i didn't like Daniel's role, he reminded me of Really really like you where Li min ki was such an annoying charac & now at Baby Face once more RJ didn't get to end up with the girl! yeah his role as president in Baby Face is one again a likable person, oh he's always sweet! i hope they give him a lead role soon if not on this drama!

It's 3 leaf clover. But there are another two dramas which he plays the lead - the trio (2002) with Kim So Yeon and pure love (2001) with Lee Yo Won.

Even Ryu Jin doesn't get the leading role, I still support your dramas. I watched Call for country 'coz of you. Now, I'm watching baby faced beauty and I find this drama really great. So, fighting Ryu Jin! There are many fanclubs around there to support you..always.

He is like PilJoo from Greatest Love, despite the main leads in his dramas are never as good as CSW. He is the only second lead I root for, that he gets the leading girl in a drama.

He was adorable in My Country Call and I like him much more in BFB then Daniel Choi. He should be BFB-girl's prince...! In BFB I just fastforward to scenes with him.

Maybe one day, I hope asap, he will play the main lead in a romance-drama. I would like to see him play together either with Kim Sun Ah or Uhm Jung Hwa as contrary characters.

Its sad that he is still wasted as a second lead.

Oh my god, I love this man. It kills me a little , ok a lot, that he wont get the girl in Baby Faced Beauty. But I love Daniel Choi too, so...*cries*

Baby Faced beauty is the first time I see him, but is he had been like that in his other dramas, he deserves a lead.
I love his eyes..
If this is a weekend drama, that means a lot of episodes,right?Hmm,I dont know if i would watch this, maybe. And just for him..

okay i'll have to disagree with you about him being great at the "Second Lead". He's played the same role of a wealthy stern businessman falling in love with the plucky lead in Loving you a Thousand times, My Country Calls, and now Baby Faced Beauty. And with each one his performance has gotten lazier. he brings VERY LITTLE to the role. Compare his work in these dramas to his "Second Lead" role in Really Really Like You. in THAT one, he was FULL of charisma, personality, everything. He really seems to just be collecting a paycheck with his latest dramas.

maybe it's the script he's been getting. remember that what actors bring to the table is dictated heavily by the director/producers and what they want the show to become. I remember in a happy together show episode, he told the MCs that he tried to show off comical side of his current character in Baby faced beauty (versus his current, reserved/daddy-long legs boss character) but it got cut out in the end because it wasn't an what the show was envisioned for.

He used to mention that he wanted to play more comical charater when he played call for country. Another character that I like is in the drama "3-leaf clover". That drama, he's a bit playful guy with high confidence and I love this drama as well, so don't miss it.

Wow! Looking at all these comments, I didn't know so many people watched Call of the Country! It's actually one of my favorite dramas. Ryu Jin was such a cutie playing Han Do Hoon. I was having total second-lead syndrome... so wanted him to get Hana. He totally deserved it. D:

First and only drama I know him from is Baby-Faced Beauty and I so love his character in it. But I really fell in love with him when I watched him on Happy Together and found out how much like a 'housewife' he really is. Haha. Too much like one. They kept comparing him to an ajumma which was soooo adorable.

JB--ANOTHER IDOL OF YOURS? I didn't know you're as bad as me about RYU JIN... LOVE HIM!!! Sooo low key, I knew you liked him but... really...JB, don't steal my man...! He needs to be recognized!!!! HE's a great bad boy in Oh Pil Seung and Bong Soon Young with Chae Rim then a sad, sad man in Really, Really Like You with Eugene and the great ensemble in Mom Has Grown Horns and many more... of course he stole the show in My Country Calls! Yeah, he must have been offered leads.... eventually he'll be one... great in drama and wonderful timing as a comic!!! Thanks JB, maybe you'll have some influence somewhere and get him a lead role someday... thanks!!

I can't believe we made you recap for lie to me when baby faced beauty is WAY BETTER! I have been watching the show and it just melts me away. Unlike other dramas, this series is so simple yet warm enough to put a smile on your face.
Ryu Jin is so good in his role, not too much, not too less. Jang Nara surprised me with her acting skills, it's still hard to believe that she debuted a singer! And CHoi Daniel..... someone has to give him a movie, he's the best dorky guy i've ever seen.
THe best thing i love about the series is that whenever i think a cliche is about to happen, the drama surprises me with the most unexpected thing! Guys, you have to watch the show to feel the sweetness, it's just not describable!!

I agree, DB should've recap BFB because of the adorkable Daniel C.

At last. It would make too much sense if the President/Ryu Jin gets the girl. I was just thinking that he would've been a great lead in another drama. Sad to hear he's not getting one anytime soon.

well it true that So Young {jang nara] is on paper more compatible to The President {Ryu Jin} in BFB. Only a few years older and his status is muted by him being a divorced man and with a child, so the fact she poor would mean less and even things out socially between them but ...

Ryu Jin is married, which is probably why he's taking second leads--keeps his wife from being jealous. ^.~

As for Choi Daniel, don't hate on him if you really don't like the character he PLAYS. Besides, I find that the character moved from annoying, to adorkable, to adorkalicious. That confession was well delivered on his part and went into the "Best confession by a tongsaeng to a Nuna" list. Of all the stunts I've seen on the Nuna/Tongsaeng relationship I think that ranks up there with dying your hair silver to catch up. I think the acting has been pretty good, so he's been doing his job. I swear he seems to blush when he needs to.

Love them both in BFB. Great acting chemistry between them.

I know, that's an extremely huge age gap. But based on what I've read, it seems like it's more of a one-sided love on Kim So Eun's character since Ryu Jin and the other guy will be fighting for Seo Yeong Hee's affection. To be honest, I would find it awkward to see him as a couple with Kim So Eun. A huge part of me is hoping that it will indeed turn out to be a one-sided love.
