Kim Hyun-joong offered lead in Age of Feeling

Remember Age of Feeling? I’m happy to have the period action melodrama back in headlines now that it’s courting a new hero—this time in Kim Hyun-joong (Playful Kiss, Boys Before Flowers). Maybe third time will be the charm in scoring a lead?

This is a show that always sounded really cool—action and romance in 1930s Shanghai, amidst the Japanese Occupation and expats in China. On the shallowest level available, think of the nifty fashions and hairstyles and period sets. I’m still looking forward to the show, though admittedly the longer it takes for production to pull together, the more things there are that give me pause. First off, if they get Kim Hyun-joong signed on—he is considering the offer, with no decisions reported—it’ll be the third actor they’ve tried to get.

Granted, just because an actor chose against a drama doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with it, but once a show has a hard time getting on a schedule and two stars pass, you start to wonder. First, the show sought to cast Lee Jun-ki in the lead, but Lee chose instead to go with the MBC thriller Two Weeks. Then it was Kwon Sang-woo’s turn, but he has since confirmed with MBC’s Medical Top Team. Maybe MBC just has a really good recruiting process?

This may be a good way for Kim Hyun-joong to get back into the acting swing of things after his last drama, City Conquest, failed to get picked up, especially since his variety program Barefoot Friends is floundering. On the other hand, Kim Hyun-joong… is not my first choice for this drama. Or second. Or third. I’m willing to keep an open mind about the possibility that he’ll be better in the future than he has been in the past—but that doesn’t mean I can ignore how he’s been in the past.

KBS has finally settled on a fall timeslot for Age of Feeling, with an eye toward a November broadcast as a Wednesday-Thursday drama.

Also: For some reason Kim Hyun-joong threads have a way of turning into minefields. I would really, really like for this one to stay sane. Don’t make me go over there.

lol, KHJ is not a natural actor, but he is still better than some that continue to torture us with their "acting" *cough Jung Yunho cough*

But, still I will advise him to run from this drama. It's a trap. Quirky dramas like this have a very high chance of failing and already with his limitations and others bailing out, it's not a good sign.

Quirky drama can also become runaway hits, it all a gamble though. On his acting, well lets face it the guy an out an out Idol actor, you can trust him to learn his lines and look hot but that all you can expect from him, long as the director understand this then it should be ok, a good lead actress is vital though to cover up KHJ lacking.

Hrmm.. Kim Hyun Joong after Lee Junki and Kwon Sang Woo turned it down? That's a major step down (acting wise) from the previous two actors. I'm leaning towards this drama being no good....
But if they cast him I'll probably tune into the first couple episodes. :P

But KHJ as the lead? I mean I like him and all but I'd prefer a more seasoned actor for this... I mean I could be totally wrong but I don't think his acting has changed much.

I guess we'll have to wait and see but I'll keep an open mind about it and check it out :)

I really wonder what KBS is thinking. Are they offering a timeslot for this project as a compensation for the City Conquest debacle? Also, their last action drama was IRIS2 and we all know how it ended (bad ratings and bad reviews). Stars who refuse the part is also not a good sign. This channel is just not good with big scale projects. For me it smells like a trap and if I were KHJ I wouldn't get into this. Not a single actor (whatever his acting level) deserves to be stuck in such nightmares...

Agree mostly about Yamapi, BUT the one role where I thought he really excelled was Akira in Nobuta wo Produce. I really bought that he was eccentric and that weird. I actually think KHJ should try out a role like that, not those one-note, quiet, serious roles he had before. He should try out an eccentric lively role. He "may" actually be decent at it.

I never got beyond episode 1 or 2 of that dorama... (I know lots of people loved it, but I just couldn't).

If I'm honest, I think Yamapi is a wee bit better than KHJ and lookwise I prefer him too (but that's obviously personal preference).

I did appreciate his back hug on the bed in Buzzer Beat, which, at the time, was like the first time in a dorama that I thought I was seeing realistic skinship (though that didn't take much in terms of acting skills).

I only watched two dramas of KHJ (or was he only in two dramas?), but he did not make any impression on me at all and was greatly overshadowed by the other actors. So I agree with you that Yamapi is better, acting-wise and look-wise. Nobuta is not for everyone, but I connected a lot with the characters and story about friendship and popularity, etc, so it's one of my favorites. I tend to like the dramas the Yamapi is in, even if he is not very good in them. I get more into the story and overlook the bland acting. I liked Buzzer Beat and also that scene you mentioned, but for me, Yamapi was practically invisible in that show, because Keiko's performance really made the show for me.

Yes, yes, yes! I wouldn't actually mind if KHJ virtually played himself on screen; he has a cool (and a bit out there...) personality. Do that first, get accustomed to acting THEN try flexing his acting muscles via more serious or different roles.

And KHJ after courting Lee Jun-ki?

My thoughts exactly. I didn't mind him in Playful Kiss (mainly thanks to his chemistry with Jung So-min), but even if this drama was as well-written as it deserved to be, I don't think he has the chops to carry a show.

Be still, my heart! Kim Hyun Joong has got a special place in my heart. Yes, i know that he was not the best of actors. I think one of his problems is he just gets nervous saying cheesy stuff and really losing himself in a role. But I think he's getting better. He must have. And it's been so long since he's actually had a drama..that ACTUALLY AIRED. So am waiting for all this to work out wonderfully. KHJ in a period piece...wow!!!!!

I'm not usually interested in historical (I'm still slogging may way through Faith, and I gave up on Dr Jin and I adore both Min Ho and Jae Joong) but the thirties are an interesting time period between the two world wars so hopefully this will be wonderful visually.
I do think Kim Hyun Joong has matured over the last two years, and he seems very willing to work hard, so hopefully the director will take advantage of his strengths and guide him successfully.

Lol, such a downgrade. You know a drama will fail when actors repeatedly decline the role (Ex: Faith). I hope he doesn't take it, despite how much I think he should never try acting again, there was a time in my life where he was the bright ray of sun in my fangirl life. And people really hate idols acting in dramas, but greedy stations just love adding them in just to please the international audience.

faith is not such a good example, it didnt suck initially, that was more of a problem on the pd side. they put that script through the meat grider a few times and as far as i can remember they actually had kang ji hwan for sure if he hadnt started that legal warfare with pretty much every agency he ever crossed paths with.

otherwise i am really pissed about this, 1930s are so interesting. i do wonder if the script is that bad, they just dont have faith in the writer/pd or it was just bad luck.
with lee jun ki it could have been a close call, 2 weeks just being a little better or a personal preference. kwon sang woo, i am not sure... picking anything medical seems like a long shot because there isnt alot of precedence of those being good.

I enjoy Kim Hyun Joong. He's a dork in a hottie suit. I think he gets a bad rap-the two characters he's portrayed were not exactly chock full of personality, he was supposed to be taciturn and stiff and weird. There was one scene in BOF on the stairwell with Jan Di. His eyes said everything. It was stellar. The guy to me is quite a chameleon-look at his music videos; each one is a totally different concept. Plus I just have a big soft spot for the character of Sunbae Yoon Ji-hoo, the best friend most of us will never have.

All that said, I do not think this is a good role for him, but then again a job is a job when you need to work. And oyu cannot build acting experience without working. I was sorry that City Conquest failed.

Playful Kiss was tolerable, but let's not blame his BOF woodenness on the character, when Oguri Shun played that very same character in the jdrama and managed to make it not only good, but excellent.

I'm all for people gaining work experience, but I am also for people (i.e. idols who appear to have no aptitude for acting) knowing their limitations and not inflicting their continued bad performances on the rest of us, in roles they do not have the skill to pull off and which would be better in the hands of someone who does.

We will have to agree to disagree. I didn't blame anything on the character. I liked KHJ in BOF. I liked the character in BOF. I did not care for the j drama version in any manner, including the cast. You could not pay me to watch it.

It all boils down to personal taste and that is okay.

Unfortunately people we do not care for are cast in dramas whether it is based on if we think they are lacking or for whatever reason. People have a right to go out for roles, to work, whether we think they are worthy or not. I scratch my head over plenty of casting choices. But just as I base my viewing choices on plot and format, I also weigh in whether I enjoy the cast. I'd rather stab myself than watch a show with many of the actors that are considered really skilled, that other people rave about, because I do not personally care for them. That said, I would not watch a drama JUST because an actor I enjoy is cast in a drama either.

I don't disagree (though the part where you said the character was the one who was taciturn and stiff and weird was what made me think you were pinning those qualities on the character, rather than the performance), we have no say in who gets cast where after all. But just as people have the right to go out for roles, we also have the right to express our opinion based on their past performances, and personally (this seems to be a common opinion) he's not a good actor.

And many idols who do a decent job in their music videos/music often don't carry that over into actual acting. CN Blue's Yonghwa is another.

For someone who has watched both versions and not big fans of either, watching kim hyun joong's portrayal of his character in BOF was lacking compared to oguri shun's portrayal of his.
I am more familiar with kim hyun joong since i've watched more of his projects but you got to give credit where it's due. Oguri shun's performance was better. I'm not basing this on personal preference -- his portrayal was literally better. He was charming, funny, personable, and sweet all in one and that was able to translate through to the screen. Kim hyun Joong almost failed to translate that to the screen and so i didn't feel at all for his character -- i watched him purely for the pretty. This is where acting skills is important.
Anyone can have bias/personal preference for their actors/actresses but it all boils down to emotional connection with their characters and how well they can translate that to the screen.

True. Oguri Shun gave some depth to the Rui character, I can't say the same to Kim Hyun Joong's Jihoo in BOF.

0

I'll be the first one to admit that KHJ is not a good actor. In fact, I hated him so much in the beginning of BOF that I actually wrote a long email ranting about his acting (or lack thereof) to all my friends.

But yet there was just something about him in the show that started making me change my mind.
It wasn't that his acting got better, nor anything to do with his looks.

It was just something in his eyes, and the presence he conveyed. I don't know how to explain it. I just started getting drawn to his character. There was a quiet beauty and melancholy to it.

Perhaps that's what people call the je ne sais pas, and why his Jihoo drew so many fans the way it did.

So, even though I'm pretty skeptical about him taking on this role, part of me is rooting for him. I do hope that he nails it.
And importantly for me, the script has gotta be good or at least entertaining enough for me to want to continue.

I like the dude in his real-life variety persona, he seems hardworking, funny and has his heart in the right place, so I can only hope that he chooses the right project this time. I guess time will tell, come Nov.

Kim Hyun Joong's character in BOF, Yoon Ji Hoo, was supposed to have Asperger's Syndrome, which explains how he portrayed the role. He was really effective in it. I couldn't stand a minute of Oguri Shun's portrayal because it seemed that he did not get the memo on subtlety. That's my opinion though.

"Also: For some reason Kim Hyun-joong threads have a way of turning into minefields. I would really, really like for this one to stay sane. Don’t make me go over there."

Well, I've never heard of the guy but I guess he's like one of those stars that are bad at acting but have a popular fanbase?

Anyways, I totally agree with you, Javabeans. Age of Feelings is definitely giving off bad feelings despite sounding like a great drama. At first I was disappointed that Oppa (Lee Jun Ki) didn't sign on but now I'm feeling relieved. I'd hate to see him in a potentially bad drama.

I actually kind of liked him in Playful Kiss.

I don't understand why he keeps getting lead roles though, I mean, there are so many actors out there waiting for a chance, it annoys me sometimes how people who can't act keep getting lead roles when there could be rookie actors who are just waiting for that one role.
I wouldn't mind if he got supporting roles and built up his experience and got better at acting but..

Okay, I am going out on a limb and hope that he has matured and grown in the acting area. I am going to watch it and let whatever it is be what it is. I get the impression (perhaps wrong) that he is. Fans are fickle and I can see how they may want to be protective. But on the other hand, I usually read interviews where these folks say how they want to expand and explore, taking on roles that will not engender fans to them (evil, crazy, psychopathic, etc.).

If he takes it, I hope that he can make a smash success of it.

I think he still has a couple of years before enlistment. Many celebs push enlistment until they're 29 (30 in Korean age). This year is the '84ers' deadline, so I don't see KHJ enlisting until 2015 along with all the the other '86ers.

I kind of agree with Mar...He’s a dork in a hottie suit...To me he's like a little kid that can't tell a lie with his frankness. He can be brutally honest with his comments but not in an insulting way. I also like him in a variety setting where you can really see his personality shine through.

His version of Ji Hoo sunbae may not have been up to par with Oguri Shun's but I think KHJ wanted to portray it in his own unique way.

Even though it may be a bit risky, I think he should take the role. He does like taking roles based on Manhwa/ Manga characters so this might be the one for him. I wish him luck and hope this will give him the boost he needs in his acting career.

That said, it's cute that despite his obviously blatantly sucky acting talent (or lack thereof), some people are still adamant at defending it (the acting skill, not the individual - I do think he's a fun persona, too).

We'll see how it goes from here then. I'm loving the 30s period in general, but he's a giant red sign. Anyone knows who wrote and directed this? Those factors and the female lead they cast will determine if I should watch the premiere or not.

i think because this drama is involving japan that conquering korea at the moment. And it may sound sensitive to japan about this. That's why many stars let pass this show to make sure they don't get bad impression at japan. Just look at Bridal Mask. Many stars afraid to take the role even the drama is hit and awesome. And respect joo won that don't care about it as long the role is good and tempting. Btw, KHJ is quiet famous in japan so i wonder he brave to take it or his company allow it or not. But this drama could be a turning point of his career. Whether in good or bad way.

I jst don't understand u Korean people...I m fan of khj..nd I think he is a good actor,,he was stiff in his roles that's his acting skills bcz role demands it...I Even don't know about south Korea nd north Korea is different countries or even countries.....this is the power of this idol bcz I got attached with ur county nd I respect it..nd learned alot about korea, I hope channel heads etc have more knowledge than you guys,... Nw I understand y idols wants to b famous in Japan and overseas bcz u actually don't understand the value of them.

I can't see him in a hoodlum-who-rules-the-streets kind of role. However, I think he'd be perfect as the cold rich chaebol heir, who falls for a good, kind, happy girl who delivers milk and pumps gas to help ends meet....hey, wait, this sounds strangely familiar, hm....

Kim Hyun-joong. I'm not his biggest fan, but he is a good singer and funny and pretty to look at. But he's not the best actor. I like him, though, in Barefoot Friends (which I'm still watching, BTW) where he's really funny and brave. So, since I started watching BF, I've softened towards him considerably. I hope he does take this role, because I think he took some much needed acting lessons when he was working on City Conquest before it fell through. At least, they mentioned acting lessons on BF, so I could be wrong. I just want him to do well. Oppa, fighting!

Enough already. He cant act, and all the hoping and wishing wont make him any more than lackluster. Can we just move on? There are lots of other terrible idol actors.to choose from.

ahh~~ I was expecting this drama so much... Hope he doesn't accept... Nothing against Kim Hyun-joong, but he has yet to improve his acting skills, he should stick to easier roles for now...If he accept I hope he proves me wrong and show us a good acting ;)
