First look at Pretty Man’s cast at drama prayer ceremony

These photos aren’t from the drama proper, only the pre-show prayer ceremony, but I think they count as our first look at Pretty Man, the upcoming KBS romantic comedy starring Jang Geun-seok (as the titular pretty man), Lee Jang-woo (as the pretty-hearted second lead), IU as the (supposedly) utterly average heroine, and Han Chae-young playing yet another glam character.

The drama touts the story as a romance between “the most unbalanced pairing.” (Because he’s so pretty, see, and she’s so very average.) The hero sets out to date ten of the most successful women in Korea (only the top 1%!), because some reason. But instead, he will grow and mature and eventually come to fall for our heroine, the ordinariest ordinary girl who’s been in love with him for ten years.

I suspect the drama will release information about the ten successful women in a steady trickle; the first two have already been announced, and are pictured at bottom. So Yoo-jin (Happy Ending) is the older woman who falls for him, while Kang Ye-won (Who Are You) plays a woman who can read and control people’s feelings. I’m not sure if they mean that literally (as in, paranormal powers) or if it’s just a poetic way to describe a manipulative person, but in any case she teaches the hero how to move people’s hearts. Great, give the heartbreaker even MORE power to break hearts.

The drama still sounds a lot like plot mishmash to me, but I’m holding out hope that it’ll all come together in the final product. Hey, maybe they just have a terrible promo department with no idea how to pique interest or sell a rom-com. To think, that might actually be the best-case scenario here.

Pretty Man follows Secret on Wednesdays and Thursdays and premieres on November 20.


Lee Jang-woo, Han Chae-young

I'm not too excited for this drama either...
I read a comment on allkpop saying that HE WILL CUT HIS HAIR later on in the drama.

QUOTE: "He will cut it. Except he is filming episodes from the characters past when he had it long atm. Present time episodes will be short hair."

I don't know where this person got the information though, so yeah...

I was just thinking that he should cut his hair!! So, yay for that, at least. :-)

And let's hope this drama breaks the streak of bad luck and/or drama picking finesse that LJW has had these last years.

O.M.G. I seriously did NOT think it was possible to make someone that attractive look that bad...these are actually some of the more flattering pictures of the hairstyle: http://theeelsfamily.blogspot.com/2013/11/article-jang-keun-suks-song-of-fate-kim.html

http://rarapop.wordpress.com/2013/12/09/jang-geun-suks-new-hairstyle-in-action/ documents the hairstyle rather well, with the top picture showing just how horrendous the cut can be at times.

I really like IU, I really do. I think she is currently being typecast as the girl next door, average girl character for now, and I think she's good at that (esp. since she only just debuted). However, Jang Geun Seok needs to have some range. grahuhg. He is so...boring as an actor. I don't anticipate anything new in this role

Apparently Han Chae Young's character is divorced from a chaebol family and she goads JGS into getting secrets from successful women to get back at her ex in laws? That's what I read a while ago even though it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me.

I think I'm most interested in her character at this point.

Exactly my thought!
I keep on noticing (and it creeps me out as hell too!) that JGS keeps getting more feminine by each year/drama..I just lost that manly vibe from him after his role in Marry me Mary, You're My Pet...because he could easily just play the heroine instead of the hero..just because of his feminine look & feel. Not saying he is gay(ok the probability is there-but it don't matter), but when is playing straight roles in a drama where hotness stems from manliness (hot showers, back hugging etc.) JWS will be the last on my list to even want him do these scenes...Just because he lost his manly vibe for me..somewhere from 2009-2013...Anyway..I'll probably not watch this drama..Even though I love all the other actors.. As long as JGS keeps playing the same roles, with the same long girly hair & look..and choose bad projects I will stay the hell out of it...

I don't really get what people want to watch from JGS ?? When He had a wide range of variety in his characters and showed versatality not many were bothered with him or his acting , He got that recognition after playing a complete badass in YAB . At his age as a teenager or a kid he played characters more than his Age. None bothered about him then. Now that he's getting to play characters which he can play only when he is still young and fresh he's doing it , I think he was a pretty boy only in MSOAN . All his other characters where far different from one another , jus if his long hair makes it seem that he's playing the same characters everywhere then am sorry You don't know anything about acting .
Once if plays a badboy again ppl mock at him sayin he is doing the same , if he plays a flower again he gets the same taunts .
What is he supposed to do then ?? Most korean actors other than JGS play the same roles again n again n their acting standards are not even upto par yet none of them gets these remarks .

It's like a batallion of creatures who don't know anything but jus to bash him ever ready reagarding some or the other.

Minus the angry bits, I agree. I really like him in all his dramas and movies. Even the silliest ones like You're My Pet cracked me up. It's because he has no fear of completely going for it, whatever the scene, no matter how embarrassing. I love all his facial expressions and his strange hair. He's one of my favorite Korean actors. There are plenty of testosterone-filled manly men actors. He doesn't act gay. He's sweet and overly self-confident and funny. I can't stand his music videos, but I watched them anyways, because he seems to have so much fun making them. JGS, fighting!

In "heroes" I assume you mean male lead characters. Masc/Fem are social constructs. What one is enculturated to understand as masc/fem, may be viewed differently in another culture. Also, it can to be a certain point, a personal perception. Me, I find JGS a bit androgynous outside of dramaland, but on screen as an actor in any dramas, I do not find him to have "feminine" behavior or appearance.

I'm not trying to say he is not feminine or that he is masculine...maybe he identifies himself as feminine, I do not know, and really do not care lol, I try not to get into celebs personal lives. I was addressing his character portrayal, as a male lead in a drama, as Divryus had commented about heroes, and I am assuming that means k drama male leads, are supposed to be feminine. I was simply (with respect that Divryus has the the right to personal opinion also) offering a counterpoint, that male leads, from a Korean perspective are not considered fem, that Divryus perhaps was bringing ethnocentric perspective to the table (and that is making a huge assumption on my part that Divryus is not Korean). My point addressed his work as as actor, as a male lead, in his previous roles; I did not find JGS portrayal of his characters in dramas as overly "feminine."

Been reading a bit of post-modern feminist texts eh, or binarism a la Edward Said?

While I do think that there are social constructs of what equates male/female nature, I do not believe in disregarding the essence or attributes of a person. Ergo, masculinity and femininity are not just mere social constructs, but also stems from natural properties.

Therefore to state as fact that "Masc/Fem are social constructs" and to assume, as HipHop did, that some people who consider him feminine = no knowledge about world of fashion, would be a logical fallacy.

My annoying corrections aside, I actually want to say that I find JGS getting more and more effeminate, and I don't think it stems from some enculturation or lack of fashion knowledge. There's quite a lot of 'aegyo' coquettishness in his image and it can potentially alienate his fanbase, when fans do not know if Oppa will one day turn Unni on them. Can be unsettling ahem.

You are "putting words in my mouth," by aligning my comment with Hip Hop's comment.

Masculine and feminine gender assigned traits and behaviors are social constructs and can vary from culture to culture. Male and female sexual identification is not the same thing as masc/fem gender identity.

As I stated above, I was narrowly placing my focus on his drama character portrayals, because the original comment addressed that Korean "heroes were supposed to be feminine." I do not find him effeminate in his drama character portrayals. I was not addressing anything outside of his character portrayals. Again, I DO find JGS androgynous outside of dramaland, but as the character he is portraying on the screen in a drama, I have not found him to have “feminine” behavior or appearance.

He can identify as a paperclip or an ice cream cone in his personal life, or wear his hair in pigtails and carry pom poms around in his public persona, or sing every show tune known to mankind for all I care, as long as he does his job onscreen as an actor in the role he was cast in- that is my only concern.

Theoretically, a new pig's head is ordered at butcher's. It is impotrant that the pig smiles (?!) because it is a good omen.
I've been interested in Korean culture for almost five years, yet I cannot get used to this custom. But apparently the Koreans value it a lot, to the point that even serious enterprises (like shipyards, electronics manufacturers, etc) celebrate it to ensure good luck in their work.

@Cynthia of course I know that. That is why he is one of the leading Hallyu Star & we know that when we say hallyu star means one who has achieved a great popularity abroad (outside Korea). And Jang Geun Suk achived his Hallyu star status at a young age if you will compare it to Bae Yong Joon who pioneered the Hallyu wave through the drama Winter Sonata and achived that status at the age of 31. Many Korean celebrities would love to become a prominent figure in Hallyu.

And there are lot of Korean actors who have not yet achieved a lead status & some of them would just dream of it.

Oh! Good call! I kept thinking that he used to have sort of a slightly menacing/hot thing happening, but it disappeared . But now that you mention the eyebrows, I think that's what changed. They also made his face appear more angular. Trimming them makes his face appear rounder.

Now...he's got a style that's all feminized. Not that I have anything against flower boys or whatever guys with a touch of feminine looks are called (seriously, I loved Lee Jun Ki even when he looked a bit girly)...just that JGS really looks too feminine that it will feel awkward to think of him as even cute in a boy-cute sort of way.

His YAB-era face was the cutest, he lost that when he went in for the jaw shaving. He's still cute, but that V-shape just looks......off, somehow.

someone on koalas said that they hoped the jaw shaving craze doesn't spread to the male half of kdramaland as well, and I hope to god it doesn't. I don't want Lee Jong-seok, Kim Woo-bin and the like defaced by bad V-lines in the face.

And if anyone needs proof that having an actual jawline and not a V-shaped point is sexy as hell on a man, they can just be shown a photograph of So Ji-sub. Or that screencap from Master's Sun ep 7 where Gong Hyo-jin is feeling up his jaw.

It is the same for LMH I can't stop wandering why he looks so different in Heirs, if he just lost weight or he did that. If he did it's a sin, he looks nothing like the gorgeous creature from PP and Faith.

His jawline looks a lot less angular than it did c. 2008-2010, and normally weight loss brings out MORE angles in that area, not less. He already had a narrow face to begin with, but that drastic 'V' wasn't there :(

Same with Lee Min-ho. He's thinner, but his face has a softened jawline, which is a shame because his natural jawline was pretty great.

Thanks kristin_ez, it's a shame, pogo is right :( his face IS less angular after 2010. I wonder what these lunatics are thinking? He had the perfect interesting balance between female/male face, the girly eyes with menacing eyebrows, the broad sort of ugly nose with a soft mouth but a male face needs a jaw, very, very few guys can get away with a very skinny face or a deep V face and still look masculine. Even if the person looking at them doesn't know what's wrong with the guy, he/she will subconsciously reject something they perceive should look male but doesn't anymore. It's a shame but I hope he's happy with it. Maybe someday he can get back to normal?

Don't even get me started on LMH, for him it's even bigger shame. Often when he dragged me through his shows, I wondered how separately, his features would never work, nose too big, mouth too full, cheeks too big but because he had such a big well proportioned face, it was all perfectly balanced, it was a like a trick of nature. I just can't believe he messed up like that.

I don't even understand how jaw shaving became such a thing in Korea, who told them it was pretty? I mean how come in the west anyone pretty has good, decent jaws? Just look at Jolie, B.Pitt, Depp, everyone and all the models too! Even the girls I bet looked better with their old jaws! I love HJE in Secret but I often catch myself thinking she must have been gorgeous with her old face, now it's too much like an ant/doll though she is certainly still pretty.

It's the same for LMH, yes he's still attractive but he got a hell of a lot more normal and no longer has that exotic mesmerizing face.

He NEVER did any PS (jaw shaving) from time to time his narrow jaw would look very obvious in his photo shots especially the unedited ones (as shown in this photos when he was younger). He is known to have that distinct feauture (small face, narrow jaw, slim body built), they even considered him prettier than an actress because of it. We know how the korean actresses would love to have a narrow jaw.

Jang Geun Suk i love you the way you are please don't ever change.

JKS always have a very sharp chin. It depends on how he smiles and his weight at that moment. This is a picture of him during his teenage years.

I want to believe he didn't do it but a teenage pic doesn't count for me, his face wasn't fully formed yet. Find a picture from 2009 during YAB or even Mary in which his face looked V shaped like it is now.:) It's not being skinny either because, like pogo says, people gain angles, don't loose them getting skinnier and he was already almost a stick in those years.

Whoa another crazy South Korean plastic surgery fad! I certainly hope not too.

Judging by JGS's Personality even if he had a Plastic surgery he is gutsy enough to come open and talk about it unlike many korean celebs who try convincing people with their Fake words.
JGS is one hell of a Bold and Honest guy on that land....Other than that I am very sure he hasn't gone under knife till date . You guys yourself can check his pics all through the years , the angular changes in his face are due to the Weight loss thing which always goes with him.

Pogo, it's so funny. I have that sorta v-shaped jawline and I always hated it, hoping for a more rounder face. To think that may be a standard of beauty in Korea....the grass sure is greener on the other side, lol.

But yeah...I don't mind if actresses do jaw shaving (even if most look way better without it) since it brings a more feminine touch to the face...but I certainly hope it doesn't affect the actors.

@DayDreamer - ha, the grass is definitely greener on the other side! I'm round-faced and always wished the lower half of my face was more heart-shaped/that I had a little more angle to my jaw - a natural heart-shape there looks really pretty on girls.

But even so, I feel like half these cosmetic procedures are just mucking around the faces of men and women who didn't really need them to begin with - there are a few young actresses for whose sake I have my fingers crossed that they never attempt it, because it would throw off the sense of proportion in their faces just as surely as it does for the men.

You are terribly mistaken , He always had that extreme V-shaped Jawline , it's jus that it gave us a different look visually everytime he gained or loss weight . JGS is prone to lose weight more than others if he is even on a diet not on regular basis.

He most definitely didn't have a Plastic surgery like many korean men , if he'd have done that , the first thing should have been his nose which should have gone under knife.
Yes! that Edge of his eye brows is no longer there , but he can get it anytime since he is a guy hehe.

Once he gets that buff on his face again his extreme v-shaped face would be gone. It's mostly coz of his weight loss program that brings the change in his face .

LOL....If u are hell bent on not wanting to agree he hasn't got a PS , then none could make u believe , as u have set up ur mind.....have fun Living in ur delusional world. Just like someone said above , JGS is definitely bold enough to tell about His PS even if he had one. So! yeah....

It's weird that people only at disect celebs to an extent making false assumptions and spreading it , it seems as if it's true.

I'm just a curious fan. I'm not hell bent on anything and if you had cared to read my previous post you would have seen that I was questioning IF he did it or not. It was only after someone posted a series of pics I started believing he had done it. I did question the teenager/upper angle pics because believe it or not I would really like to discover he didn't do it. :) Anyway, let's not take it seriously because you're obviously a fan and I'm a fan too so we should all get along. :)

@Lixie Do you mean me as someone who posted a series of pics, & have you not read my comment with it ---
"for me he’s pretty much THE SAME, as you said just the eye brows & weight loss", but you choose to believe otherwise.

I still insist Jang Geun Suk never did any PS - he has not done anything. My husband has similar facial oval thin face like JGS and with weight loss it can definitely happens i've seen it with my husband.

0

@kristin_ez I did read your comment but when I looked at the pics it was rather impossible for me to believe he didn't 'cause he was already so skinny, but anyway, like I said, we are all fans and I'm sure we will meet again in the Pretty Man thread if show ever gets recapped. I'm sure we will have more interesting things to comment and I promise not to have absolute 100% certainty he did it anymore. You guys are convincing. :)

If they are calling this dude with ugly hair the prettiest man, then in comparison, IU is certainly not average looking. Casting Fail!

I beg to differ with you but Jang Geun Suk is one of those few celebrities who can pulled off any kind of hairstyles, he's not at all afraid. Why don't we put it this way why is that very few Korean actors dared to sport a long hair like Jang Geun Suk? Those few only did it when filming for period (historical) drama.

^This . Well Said .
I always wonder who has the guts to try something different like JGS sporting a Long hair or a head shaved at one side of his head . Most korean men submit to the whims of the public , it's JGS who one of the few who explores alot with hairstyles than any others.

Yay for Kim Ye Won! Love her!
BTW JB that's Kim Ye Won in the pic, and she was the one in 'Who are you' and in 'Flower Boy Ramyun Shop' Kang Ye Won is a whole other actress!

I like JGS too, and even though I appreciate longer hair on men when it's done right, with JGS it's getting old! He seriously needs an style change and start showing us some rough edges besides the girly cuteness. Sadly at the moment I really cant see him as a serious hero character to make the ladies swoon. I'm dying for him to cut his hair and hopefully get out of the drama funk his been in. Hopefully this drama will do the trick on both fronts, fingers crossed!
IU seems cute as always so saying that she's plain is a bit of a stretch. All in all, no hated faces so far so I think I'll give it a try, see how it goes :)

I'd watch it (perhaps) if he'd cut his damn hair. God I hate how he looks with that stupid long hair. *shudders* But as one of the possibly few guys (really have no idea how many guys are on this site) reading/watching these dramas, if I were to watch it it'd be for IU and the ladies.

I guess LJW is smarter than me, right. He knows it is a good career move to take the second lead in this, right?

Someone tell me his role will be fabulous, the character will sneak up on all of us, and he will give LGS a run for his money, right?

We'll all be crying for him when it is over.

I don't understand why he isn't either going after or being cast as first leads. Is he too not-alpha for that?

I think it's kind of weird that people are busting on JGS having long hair, when on anyone else it would send hormones into over drive. I'm not crazy about the hair style in the first photo, but in the reading photos, where it is more natural, that's totally hot- and to be clear, JGS is not on my hottie list. I enjoy long hair on men when it is healthy and attractive, which for JGS, it is. At least he has a style. Has anyone said a word about the shapeless whatever that is Lee Jang-woo's hair?

I've seen the other photos of the poster stills and JGS's hair looks great there. He is supposed to change his hairstyle for the drama, and personally I hope he avoids the trend of awful that is going on in k drama guy hairstyles this year. That scary rooster look needs to go. I think Lee Jun-jin and So Ji Sub were the poster children of helmet hair this year. Woo Bin's faux Kenickie thing, wtf? Joo Ji Hoon-good thing he's so friggin beautiful, I do not even know what to say about that pile of weird on top of his head.

I cannot believe I just typed a giant comment on hair. *eye roll, and laughs at self*

All that said, I totally was not into this drama mostly because of the title and I really did not like Lee Jang-woo in I Do I Do. But I forgot what a character JGS is, and the rest of the cast seems cool, so I may check it out.

Off to rethink what I am doing with my life, thinking so much about dude hair.

It's not weird, he doesn't look good with it and this is coming from a viewer who is partial to guys with long hair.

I find it weird that JGS gets shit on so much at all, when as far as I can tell, his worst offence is not looking 'manly' enough offscreen. His hair was great in Mary and I didn't mind it in Love Rain, either. But it is kind of old hat for him, now - I like the ponytail but wish he'd switch it up a bit, maybe keep the hair long but style it differently?

For the record, I actually really liked SJS's hair in Master's Sun - the shaved edges and full bangs were perfect for him, and I say this after seeing hi go through quite a few unfortunate 'dos. The shaved edges are what save it, imo - less foof at the sides, and a wee bit less helmet-y. And Woobie's Heirs hair is growing on me.

Great, now I've written an epic comment on dude hair too.

JGS hair does not good for his looks, makes him look like a ahjumma, his skin is also not that good, must be his life style showing his nightless parties and etc.

He is young though, he should have fun.

But I hope he can get more professional about his drama works, because so far I only see he getting roles that pleases his ego and makes him not challenge himself or cut the hair.

The Case of Itewon homicide
Happy Life
Baby and I

The list is long and his characters are very different from one aother. Don't try judging him with jus few shows that you've watched.

After YAB fame got over his head.

He keeps getting pretty guy roles, started to sing even though he can't sing but thinks he is soo cool doing that embarrassing stuff he calls music. And he even call himself ''prince of asia'' plus it is writen on his bussiness card.

I liked all his pre-YAB days, he there was doing a good job, but then YAB happened and fame got over his head, :( such sad a good actor being wasted like this.

I believe its not because of his fame that he is choosing this kind of role. Its a matter of age, in one of his interviews he prefer to act a role like that in YMP movie while his age is still credible. JGS would have plenty of opportunities to act in a much serious, mature roles in the future (after his mms), he is a very good actor & he's been in the show business for so long, it's not that easy to dismiss. PDs & writers (like the Hong sisters who have trusted him with their three dramas as far as I know - Hong Gil Dong, Beethoven Virus, You're Beautiful) would for sure seek him out for future roles, & now writer Yoo Young Ah.

As for his singing, his fans love him for it, at least he is the only Korean actor whose fan meetings turned into concerts & who is able to release several albums in Japan & China (all those solo albums reached #1 in music charts) I salute him for that! Its not easy considering all the competition that is coming from K-Pop but he did it nonetheless. Other actors have tried but not that much successful like Jang Geun Suk. In fact now, he is in the middle of his Zikizin Live Tour, & he has improved a lot as a singer.

Just can't get over with JGS he has way too much talent that producers (whether music or drama) find it difficult to ignore that talent.

Hold onnn! Fame got over his head really ???
I loath people like such who think "Omg! Fame got over his head" because he is successful . The guy is always the same the only difference is he was asked to Act and be fake to the public when he under a Management company which he did by not being too outspoken and honest.
Jus because he is popular or successful doesn't call it for him being not Down to earth or careless.

He keeps getting pretty guy roles , Yes he does like every other actor of his generation does , atleast he's not trying to be a School kid in his 26 like few other hahaha. If you only think JGS acting in a Masculine roles only would make him a Good actor then all I can say is LOL . Have u watched Love Rain , the scenario in the 70's , he did a phenomenal job there and no pretty guy.

As for his Singing frankly he is way better than many Idols in korea who use Auto - tunes or sing in a groups with 10-15 singers unable to figure out whose voice is who's lol . JGS is untrained singer who has a deep passion for music and singing . He himself considers he is still miles away from being called a singer , So why are u bothered much ??? Am his Fan but am not much into his Rock music , I still consider him as a Best choice for an actor singing for Drama/Movies OST's .

As for his business card that's his wish and his money. Why are u bothered ?? he already said this a million times it's him aim to be called as Asia prince someday not that he really thinks he is.
Don't want to argue much , you have that momo name to ur username :P

If I may kindly point out, I never mentioned the actor's physical appearance or hairstyle. I honestly have nothing to say about it.

My impression of him is based on the productions I've seen him in, the most recent being Love Rain. I can see how I did not make this clear in the above comment, as I failed to mention it altogether.

While I'll admit to not watching Love Rain for it's entire run, I did give it a chance, as I often do for most dramas. I saw JGS onscreen, and what can I say, I just didn't find him compelling, it was all just rather flat. As a result, I stopped watching. His portrayals just never capture my attention, unfortunately.
