Jang Geun-seok buried in drama offers

(What an adorable picture. It’s like Jang Geun-seok’s softer personality with Hwang Tae-kyung’s sharper wardrobe, which is, if we must split things up between them, the better way to do it.)

In any case, it comes as no surprise that Jang Geun-seok, coming off his very popular role in the recently ended You’re Beautiful, is now being met with a landslide of job offers. (He’d already been approached for numerous CF offers while the drama was early in its run.) After heading to Japan last week for a recent fanmeeting, Jang is settling down to select his next project. He’s facing a happy dilemma as he looks over the scripts that came in while he was shooting the drama; currently, he is entertaining twenty different offers for movie and drama roles. His management said, “Starting while he was still filming, casting proposals have been pouring in. Synopses and scripts are piled on his desk like a small mountain. He hasn’t decided yet whether his next project will be a movie or a drama.”

You’re Beautiful‘s popularity didn’t necessarily shoot him to stardom, since Jang was already a well-known actor when he took the role — he has about a dozen other projects on his resumé — but I will say that it produced his most memorable character. The drama may not have had the highest ratings but it generated a lot of buzz, and firmly established his place as one of the most promising young actors of his generation, who commands name recognition and a solid domestic and overseas fanbase.

I clicked on your blog on my "Favorites" bar, and when JGS's picture came up, I was SO inexplicably excited. Haha. I hope his next project will allow him to portray more memorable characters like Hwang Tae-Kyung!

Btw, I am TOTALLY buying a Pig-rabbit, even though they're ridiculously expensive. And probably the bow-pin when it comes on sale. Sigh.. You're Beautiful has turned me into a squee-ing fangirl!

Just bought my Pig Rabbit plushie from YesAsia! I just had to have it! My current teddy bear is becoming misshapen due to abuse while watching drama anyway.

I was going to post something on Uhm Tae woong and this article of JGS just appeared and of course I took a beeline for this article instead. Does his image cause some kind of pavlovian response in me that I can't control? YB fever has usurped my long love for UTW.

JGS deserves the success and I hope he picks a role that will help his acting grow either in nuance or range.

He deserved to be well recognized as his role in You're beautiful since he's portrayed the character so well.

Whatever he chooses as his next project, I"m sure there will be plenty of fans supporting him. Good luck to him!!

Thank you for posting!

I hope he takes a good break, and then come back strong!!!

He is talented. JGS, I really hope he will accept good roles and grow more as an actor.

And I think this article is saying that he will be the MC for the upcoming 2009 Melon Music Awards on December 16th?

Tae Kyung hyung-nim! Glad he's getting even more recognition--he's done so much already and he's so young. I forget a lot that the characters he portrays are older than his actual age. YB was perfectly cast, plus he got to act his real age.

JB, thanks for the continued YB-esque crack... need a little here and there to help with the massive withdrawal symptoms :)

Ah, so this is why I am suddenly salivating = Pavlov/JGS.

For his project, I gently suggest DRAMA, DRAMA, DRAMA. At least with a drama we could have him for eight weeks at least. A movie, at an hour and half, is just not satisfying.

Everything about that photo of JGS is perfect. Perfectly tailored clothes, a smoldering come-hither look in his eyes, an adorable semi-pout, and a hair style that for once is just, just, just right.

Be still, my beating heart.

Sooo excited! He will be able to have his pick of roles and I will get to watch him again. Win-win situation.

JGS will go far...but like Minam, I am a bit saddened because as his star shines brighter, his admirers will increase and lil ole me will just be one of millions gazing at his brightness but never able to catch the star. He brings me happiness and pain.

I need to snap out of it and stop with the star analogies. LOL. Argh! JGS, stop looking so cute...are you trying to drive us crazy?

I bet Jang Geun Suk is going to take a completely other type of role this time...maybe a character like Shin Woo? All of his characters seems so cold, he probably should take a new role to upgrade more interest.

It's his most memorable role. I love him in here. NO one can beat that role like JGS.AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH..wish i could actually meet him in person....

I doubt that he will be taking another drama guys. He's finishing his degree this year. He already took time off for YB. If he does not go back now he will not be bable to graduate on time. I remember him saying that he will go back to school when YB finishes.

LOVE, LOVE LOVE THE PICTURE!

It motions the confidence of JGS, and the cockyness of Hwang Tae Kyung. It gives such a strong bad boy vibe to me LOL! Which is Fabulous!

Damn. can't. stop. looking. at. the. picture. Am trying to write the comment but my hand keep on scrolling to his pic. Hands. are. not. listening. to. me.

HTK is surely his most memorable character, which up until now, I still have difficulties in seperating the real JGS and the adorable HTK. Hands. stop. scrolling. Or perhaps i'm still largely in the withdrawal period so have to wait till the buzz cooled down. Must. make. this. a. wallpaper. Glad he has a mountain of projects to choose from, and I really hope he would choose a character that is a total contrast of HTK. Love. the jacket. Love. the. hair. Love. the. chin. Love the eyes.

I better stop. writing that is.

I bet.. he is a very good actor... it was like he was trained since he was a kid... he can do emotional stuffs really well and can cry very pretty too... And i think he was the main lead in this drama compared to the other drama... he was like the second lead... so he broke the barrier and step away from the second lead... he totally deserve it ... i hope he picks another good drama... soon..

WOW!!! another post about JGS!!!!!! whatever project he chooses I will definitely support him!
I hope he doesn't get too busy though, YAB may become a HUGE hit in the Philippines ;) and the network might invite him and the other cast to visit my country... (wishful thinking)

JANG GEUN SEOK is HOTNESS!!! ;)

1st week without YAB, miss his face already...
while season 2 would be amazing fan service to all, I believe he is the type of person who aims higher than a sequel...judging from his.. ahem.. fashion sense... he definitely seems to enjoy change and being different and not conforming to a set image.

Was watching a fancam vid of him singing without words as an encore the Japanese fanmeet and his charisma and confidence really made up for his rather horrifying live singing...not something anyone can pull off. Glad he's sticking to acting, what he is best at, as his main career... JKS's truly a shining star with a lot of potential!

Looking forward to what he will bring us soon, after some much needed rest of course and gaining back some of that weight he lost for yab...

Oh dear it seem that my obsession for this guy is getting quiet unhealthy! Haha but at least I am not alone! It seem that JB herself is keeping up with JGS news, as well :) It must be because of the post YB withdrawals! But I would like the guy to take a break to rest and finish school! He has work so hard in the past few months! Please take some time to yourself JGS, and give us your ALL on your next project! I'm behind him 100% and more! He has entertained me on all different sorts of levels and for that I will always remain a loyal fan. Ahh, this love of mine is borderline-ing creepy..LOL oh well, Jang Geun Suk just makes me craaazzyy<3

JGS has such raw, natural talent as an actor and has such charm. I really hope he chooses a role that lets his talent shine through. Agree that Hwang Tae Kyung is his most memorable character to date and he pulled it off brilliantly. Love, love, love JGS and hope to see him blossoming even more as an actor.

aaaw I'm happy for him, I really think he truly deserved it. I'm suffering from YAB withdrawals, its barely kicking in since there's nothing to look forward to every Wed/Thurs...but this definitely made me smile. I can't believe I'm crushin' on a young-un, but he's just so charismatic!

Wow... that pic... totally drool worthy... *starry eyes* --> seems like my addiction has not tapered off yet... lolz...

Soooo glad that he got so many offers, although it's expected, judging from how good he was in YB and how much buzz the show generated. As much as I want to see him in another drama/movie (and that's putting it mildly... :P), I would rather he take his time and choose carefully. TK is such a memorable role, and I think the bar has been reset for him. I hope for a more meaty role that would challenge and sharpen his acting ability. Plus, he needs to put time for school, since he's graduating in May 2010 (?).
And in the meantime, he can get some rest and bulk up a bit... :P

Exceedingly happy to hear bout my favorite star. Whatever offer he takes, I hope he'll be the leading actor; rather than the second lead that never gets the girl.
Of course, I hope he can quickly graduate and then concentrate fully in acting so I see him more often; on screen. Love him..

What a GORGEOUS picture! **drool** :)
I'm so glad JGS is getting the recognition he so deserves. He was brilliant in YAB. I miss HTK so much that I have to rewatch bits and pieces of YAB and listen to its fabulous OST everyday as part of my therapy.
I hope JGS will take some time to rest and relax and take his time to choose his next project. Whatever project he chooses to do next, I'll be overjoyed to see him again!
ABSOLUTELY LOVE HIM TO PIECES!!!
