Eom Ki-joon cameos on Can’t Lose

Ahh, so this is how they’re going to introduce conflict for Can’t Lose’s extension.

Eom Ki-joon (Scent of a Woman, Dream High) is making a recurring appearance on the drama starting from today’s Episode 14 through Episode 17, playing Eun-jae’s (Choi Ji-woo) ex-boyfriend. That means he’ll probably mess with the couple’s budding reconciliation in the same way that Lee Soo-kyung‘s guest appearance as Hyung-woo’s (Yoon Sang-hyun) ex-girlfriend rocked the boat in the drama’s early episodes.

On the one hand: Manufactured conflict, boooooo. On the other hand: Eom Ki-joon!

I love him, and think he has a wonderful presence no matter what role he’s playing, whether it’s cold and collected (Hero), dorky and bumbling (Dream High), or my favorite, cold-on-the-outside and dorky-on-the-inside (Scent of a Woman). I miss my Dr. Poopy. Eom’s always a nice bonus, even if the appearance is as unremarkable as his cameo in Miss Ripley earlier this year (he was fine, his prosecutor character was fine — it just seemed like a waste of his talent for a role that could’ve been played by any no-name rookie).

But since the bottom line is more Eom Ki-joon, I guess I’m onboard.

Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy~ I hope they make his character at least a little interesting so it's not so obvious it's just because of the extension.

Can he be an alternate universe Dr. Poopy? He was too adorable to just let that character go. :(

Hear hear. Alternate universe Dr. Poopy please. But since he doesn't have time to prepare a new character, we just might see more Poopy-seok.

I wonder how actors feel when they are the last minute addition to a drama. Is it like being asked for a date 2 hours before the prom? Possibly insulting, but too good to pass up?

Yeah! Although I do not as a rule like extensions, if this brings us more of Eom Ki-Joon, Show is excused. Really looking forward to watching drama from now on.

I hope he doesn't end up playing jerk ex-boyfriend. i hope his character is the 'awesome' ex-boyfriend-the boyfriend every girl wants. the regret breaking up type because of how awesome he was to begin with. :P

I love him as poppie pants dr in Scent of a Woman. He plays evil/hateful characters well too.
Hope he gets a lead part soon too not just second lead!

Haven't been watching Can't Lose, only reading the recaps, but I will watch these last episodes if Eom Ki-joon is cameoing. As much as I enjoyed KSA and LDW in Scent of a Woman, EKJ was the highlight of the drama for me. Love him!

I never understood the Eom Ki-joon love until I watched that drama. He totally won me over! And I found myself wondering when he had become so hot? :)

I think when he sings, he's totally hot. hehehe. He got some good banter and chemistry with Shim Eun Jin. Yeah, that drama owned me. I didn't expect to love it but I did.

Hmmm. Interesting. Not sure I like this contrived plotline but I guess it makes sense, somehow. Eun-jae was jealous of Hyung-woo's ex, so he needs to be jealous of hers.

Plus, Eom Ki-joon is so cute!

All I can say is "Yay!!!!!" Love him too. I haven't seen all his works yet, just World Within (he rocked), Dream High (loved him there too) and part of Scent of a Woman.
Funny, I was thinking about my favorite Korean actors/actresses and having a conversation with myself (I was alone in my room) and I actually said "I love EKJ because he does subtlety really well and he brings depth to his characters and he conveys that really well. It's actually palpable when he acts".
I love the scene in SOAW when he cooks for the KSA character and she tries to touch him (to get something from his hand) and he recoils as if something/someone has just burned him (because he was so sensitive to her presence around him). I rewatched that scene many times and thought about how he had to time his reaction etc and look natural. What a pro!
I didn't like his character in World Within, but I LOVE how he played him and I think he got an award for that. Well deserved, of course!!!!

That is a good article. Eom Ki-joon really impressed me with his facial/eye expressions and quick responses to Kim SunA that were so meaningful in Scent of a Woman. He says, "through dramas, I can quicken my reactions. I think that, no matter what medium an actor works in, he needs to be able to adjust his acting pattern to that medium quickly.”

Oh my, thanks for the link. I just watched it. He is delightful and so talented. SOAW was my intro to him, and now I am a fan. Thanks to you, now I see and hear the music in him which I understand is his background.
