Jang Geun-seok celebrates his 24th birthday

I can’t believe Jang Geun-seok is just 24. He’s already got 13 drama series to his name, nine films, about a half-dozen single albums, and a whole crapton of CFs. And I don’t even think he’s close to his peak yet.

Jang celebrated his birthday, August 4, with staff and cast from his movie You’re My Pet, which is currently filming. In it, he plays the titular “pet” to Kim Haneul’s sophisticated careerwoman; he’s a ballet dancer who is taken in by the professional with a horrible romantic track record and lives as her companion/friend/pet. Kim’s also in one of the shots below, holding out his cake to him while he makes a wish.

Jang recently concluded his 2011 Asia Tour with a finale concert in Seoul, held on August 7. The tour took him through six cities in Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Taiwan, and China.

You’re My Pet is due out later this year, after which we can hope Jang returns to dramaland with a new project. His last one was a miss (the crazy, ill-plotted Mary Stayed Out All Night), but discounting that, he’s had a pretty successful last five years with dramas like You’re Beautiful, Beethoven Virus, Hong Gil Dong, and Hwang Jini. Can’t wait to see what he picks next.

he's so frail and feminine. They should cast him as a female lead in the next drama

Yeah, I'm kind of thinking the same thing.
Although I think Jang Geun-seok is a solid actor, I find his frail stature, very boyish and somewhat effeminate face a bit of a turn-off. I still think he's cute, just not for a lead role in a romance. But then again I am biased toward older, masculine men (i.e. Cha Seung Won).

I think it's a phase, he likes to change a lot. In his Beethoven drama he was kind of buff and had a buzz cut. I think he is hanging on to this look because it's popular in Japan and he is making a nice bit of change there.

Can't wait for his next drama, but his hair has to go asap and he's either got to get a new coordi or a get a new wardrobe:

ROFLMAO! This PD always makes his actors look amazing. Let's cut our hair for this drama, JGS!!!!! I want to see you looking manly for once, I want to see a haircut that matches your manly voice. How about the buzz cut ala your fellow Leo, G Dragon?

Even though Mary Stayed Out was a nightmare in terms of mad, irritating fathers and strange plotting u-turns, JKS was outstanding in it I reckon. Very talented guy . . . his Hwang Tae Kyung was one of THE outstanding comic characters and contrast that with, eg, his role in the Itaewon Murder Case to Beethoven Virus to his lighter comedy and then onto his video for Let Me Cry

Ha, I graduated 3 months ago and still can't find a job! Bachelor degrees these days are totally worthless! And yes, reading his accomplishments in a list pretty much added salt to that wound...

On a positive note, he's adorable and deff haven't reached his peak yet. I wish, like everyone else, that he'd cut his hair:( Somewhere along the lines like the haircut in "Baby & Me" would be nice

Indeed he's such an accomplished young man. It helps that he started so young in showbiz.

He also recently purchased a US$ 10 M six-storey building in Seoul with his savings. That's an amazing accomplishment for a person his age.

He purchased a what? *boggles* What does he need a building for?

That being said, I think he looks utterly adorable in these pictures. By the way, if he's celebrating his Korean 24th, that means he's really 23, right?

The building probably is the new tree j company office since they recently changed addresses.

no in korea he's 25 years old. 24 years old everywhere else (except china because they add an extra year like korea.)

He's cute in a girly/little boy way. I do like him in most of the stuff I've seen him in, he's turning into a pretty good actor. But, my husband saw a pic of him and said "Who is she?".
