Lee Je-hoon reports for military service
javabeans: Oh no! Lee Je-hoon (Introduction to Architecture, The Front Line, Bleak Night, Fortune Tellers) is off to army! Drat that draft.
girlfriday: Sigh. Takes ‘em all when they’re just peaking. But on the upside, it spits ‘em back out with post-army abs.
javabeans: This is one case where I’d forgo the army abs just to have him for two extra years. I can drool over most actors in a purely eye-candy way, but Lee Je-hoon? This one hurts. He’s amazing.
girlfriday: And he’s amazingly young, for being amazing.
javabeans: And he was amazing so amazingly early in his career. Which is amazing.
girlfriday: Basically, he is amazeballs.
javabeans: He’s not just a technically spot-on actor, but he’s got this blazing intensity that just sucks you right into his orbit. You know like those people with so much charisma that they could be talking to a group of people and you feel like they’re Talking To Your Soul? That’s how I feel about his characters. Your soul is hooked and maybe a little scared because the guy might be a weensy bit psychotic, but you love him anyway.
girlfriday: Er, that sounds intense. I think I’m fine letting you be the one sucked into psycho orbits and all.
javabeans: Probably a good idea. I need someone to pull me out into sanity! Although… I guess army duty can do that. Damn it.
girlfriday: Well if that orbit’s as strong as you say it is, no two years will stop that force.
javabeans: At least he left behind a pretty great filmography to rewatch. Sadly, none of those includes a decent drama.
girlfriday: I won’t do Fashion King, no matter how strong the gravitational pull.
javabeans: Eh… I think Fashion King has negative gravity. Repulsive magnetism? There’s a sciency thing for that, right?
girlfriday: So it cancels out the Lee Je-hoon Factor?
javabeans: Well it certainly shits all over it. *shakes fist at Fashion King*
girlfriday: I want him to come out and be Won Bin, but he doesn’t have the exposure for that yet. Drat that crap drama.
javabeans: Don’t count him out just yet! Won Bin has crap dramas on his resume, doesn’t he? Everybody gets a mulligan once.
girlfriday: Perhaps army duty will make those memories fuzzy, and then BAM! Hotness.
javabeans: That silver lining’s a little more like tinsel, but I suppose it’s better than nothing.
girlfriday: Hey, we take what we can get on Army Enlistment Day.
