Joo-won makes his return to dramaland from the army
Happy Lunar New Year, everyone! And what better way to ring in the new year than to welcome back from army duty the first of our ‘87er leading men: Joo-won (My Sassy Girl) has officially returned to the civilian world today (February 5), a full ten days earlier than previously planned.
Whenever I see the news about military discharges, I always simultaneously think, “Has it really been almost two years?” and “It’s been too long since I’ve seen you in dramaland!” By all accounts, Joo-won flourished in the army, shooting straight to the top of his class during basic training and becoming a drill instructor later on. But I’m glad we’ll finally get to see him out of his army uniform, though he hasn’t chosen his next project yet.
I personally have had some love-hate relationships with his past dramas, but his personal charm and charisma always sucks me in, at least for longer than I would’ve stayed without him as leading man (see: Naeil’s Cantabile, Yong-pal, My Sassy Girl). Well, let’s just hope Joo-won chooses his next project (please be a drama, please be a drama…) and soon! I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see him back on my screen!
