Lee Ji-hoon promotes Jeonju International Film Festival

Singer-actor Lee Ji-hoon is currently acting as promotional rep for the 10th Jeonju International Film Festival (JIFF), which kicked off on Thursday. In these photos, he poses at a café in the city of Jeonju on May 1.

Lee Ji-hoon (You’re My Destiny) is one of those mid-level actors who works steadily but probably doesn’t get enough love. He’s also one of those people whose appeal you might not quite get until you see him in motion, and then his warmth comes through, which I suppose makes him the quintessential “hunnam” (warm guy), the kkotminam’s (metrosexual pretty boy) lesser-appreciated counterpart.

SONG OF THE DAY

S (에스) – “사랑니 (Love Is).” Great harmonies on this track. This is the former project group formed by Lee Ji-hoon with Kang Ta (of H.O.T.) and Shin Hye-sung (of Shinhwa). This particular song was written (music and lyrics) by Kang Ta; Lee Ji-hoon sings first, then Kang Ta, then Shin Hye-sung. If you’re curious about whose face goes with whose voice, watch the MV here.

JIFF kicked off on April 30 and runs through next Friday, May 8. The festival carries the theme “Free, Independent, Communication” and will screen roughly 200 films from 42 countries.

I have a soft spot for Lee Ji-hoon, because I think he’s charming and endearing. He singlehandedly kept Hello Miss afloat amidst that drama’s silliness (Lee Da-hae was good when she wasn’t overdoing the cute — but she was frequently very cutesy). And I didn’t stick with You’re My Destiny, but for reasons that had nothing to do with him.

Next, Lee Ji-hoon acts in the film Sweet Dream [스위트 드림], which co-stars East of Eden‘s Yeon Jung-hoon (Dong-wook ahhhhhh!!) and Kingdom of the Wind‘s Choi Jung-won. The film will release later this year; meanwhile, Lee is currently hosting the cable variety program This Is the Age of the Pretty Boy [지금은 꽃미남 시대] on MBC every1

i've always liked Lee Ji Hoon. he's got a very unique look, but he's hilarious and just plain entertaining to watch. I thought he was the best thing in Hello! Miss as well.

speaking of nice, handsome guys, have you guys seen this awesome mv? I'm not a shallow person (i promise) but this mv has too many handsome guys to not spread it around. dramabeans, you'll love it cause i has...wait for it...KANG JI HWAN in a suit, singing!
here's the link:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAENwgMqO68&feature=channel_page.
it's a mv for Lotte Duty Free and it includes the following guys singing: Bi Rain, Song Seung Hun, Ji Sung, Kang Ji Hwan, Park Yong Ha, and Big Bang. Big Bang seems a little out of place and the song's only decent, but the guys more than make up for it. (i hate that i've turned these guys into eye-candy, but can't help it.)

@belleza: ROFL....you are wonderful!

I forgot about Lee Ji-Hoon in the open thread. Oei. How could I? O.O

I find his voice very soothing and he may not have six packs like those a-listers, but yes, like javabeans, i too have a soft spot for him. He is very sweet. And very committed to what he does. Too bad his singing career is neither here nor there. Loved his duet with Seo Shin Ae for that movie (can't remember what's the name).

I like hunnams more. They are the kind who will stay forever by your side. Kkotminam are just temporary candy fix. :)

I woke up grouchy.

1. When will the vest thing be over?

2. His shoes are way bigger than his feet.

3. I'm not feeling his smile. I feel like he is just smiling so that people will like him.

You should smile when you are happy, and when you are not happy, smiling is kind of fake, no? I can't imagine that he would be happy wearing the same vest that every other guy is wearing, sitting a chair that is far too small for him, and wearing shoes that do not fit.

Awww~ I thought he was adorable in Hello! Miss, although I've never seen him in anything else. (I downloaded Billie Jean a long time ago, but I keep forgetting to watch it. I need to find a place with recaps/spot translations so I know what's going on.)

And I totally forgot he was in S. XD

Lee Ji Hoon is hilarious. Aside from that one drama, HM, I've seen him out and about on variety shows either for his singing or acting and he's always always such a fun guy to watch. I agree that there's a warm appeal about him that you can feel when watching him in motion.

Ooh, I agree! He was what kept me watching Hello miss! He really does seem like a sweet person... I'll have to check out more of his work. ^_^

@13 Samsooki,

Wow, you really did wake up on the wrong side of the bed this morning! LOL

I've only seen Lee Ji-Hoon in Hello! Miss (I laughed like crazy in the opening episode, learned a bit about "orabani", but was pretty disappointed overall with this drama), but I thoroughly enjoyed Lee Ji-Hoon's character. As Javabeans pointed out in her recap, this is one of the few dramas where the main guy professes his love so early in the series. The scene where he needs to "compete" with his very muscular cousin by chopping wood is hilarious.
Lee Ji-hoon does come across as a very sweet man (even if he's just smiling for the camera), and I would take him any day (as if he'd want me!) over someone who is physically gorgeous like Daniel Henney.

OMG! I forgot about Ji Hoon. His character in Hello!Miss was lovable. I loved it when he and Dae Hee's character held hands by the pond. I heart simple moments...no flashy lights...dramatic music...just naturally played out on screen.

Did anyone ever see him in that K-movie w/ Kim Sun Ah? He was the cute teacher who had the gas issue when gettting intimate w/ women. My all time fav Ji Hoon drama is the one w/ Eugene. {I've been having issues lately with remembering al these titles.} If I remember, I'll post it.

I really liked Lee Ji Hoon in Hello Miss and was hoping to see him in more dramas. He can warm up a screen like nobody else with that megawatt smile and those twinkling eyes.

@21 Hammycatt

Thanks for the link to Lee Ji-Hoon's fan website. I went there out of curiosity and read a couple of articles and was flabbergasted to find that 20 of his lucky fans were invited to HIS HOUSE!?!

Is this a fairly common practice? Celebrities inviting fans to their homes? I can't imagine a North American celebrity doing that. Wow, and I thought fanmeetings were really personal. This is REALLY personal.

omg Ji Hoon<3 I liked him since Wonderful Life and I wanted to start and finish you are my destiny because of him.
Well I did watch Hello! Miss and he was such a sweet guy.
He wasn't the usual 'mean but nice' guy and he seemed real sweet just by looking at his role.

Hmm Billy Jean may be the next drama I'll watch (Currently watching Beethoven Virus, I love it!).

Oh but he was hilarious in Star King when he dressed up as a girlXD

He was the only thing that saved Hello Miss! for me.

And I agree javabeans. I didn't get his appeal until I saw him act. Actually when he first popped up on the screen in HM, my first thought was "Oh no, he's not cute! How can I ship them if he's not cute?!" but his character in the show proved me wrong.

Did you like Hello Miss? I wasn't that big a fan of it. Lee Da Hae's character annoyed me so much. It was one of those shows where the same problem came up in each episode and nothing really got resolved. Like, LDH would misinterpret something that LJH did, jump to conclusions and then rinse and repeat. In EVERY EPISODE. I felt bad for the poor guy! The only thing that made it up for me was the last 2 episodes which were adorable and basically filled with sunshine and puppies.

Soooo sweet and yummy looking! the only reason i don't watch all of the drama he is in because i can't stand it when he doesn't get the girl. he should be the main actor!!! don't you just hate it when the supporting actor is much better looking than the main actor? annoying!!!
