Jang Dong Gun in Springtime
If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll know that Jang Dong Gun or JDG is my favorite Korean actor. I’ve been a fan for more than a decade! I’ve been living in Korea for almost ten years and I haven’t seen him in person. The truth is he is the only Korean topstar that I don’t want to see in person. That would be the end of a dream!
Anyway, I’ve seen a lot of JDG’s dramas. The first ever was “All About Eve”, which is still my favorite modern K-drama of all time. I had only seen a few of his dramas through Arirang TV years ago. I remember Medical Doctor, Model and Icing. After “All About Eve” in 2000, he returned to the boob tube only this year through the hit “A Gentleman’s Dignity”. Whoa! That’s 12 years.
A few days ago, I searched for JDG’s dramas that I haven’t seen. They are all on our cable but I have to pay 500 won for each episode! Argghhh! Anyway, I tried to watch the two free episodes of “Springtime”. He made this drama in 1999. How exciting to see the places in Seoul during that decade…
Above, an umbrella scene that is a common sight in Korean dramas!
Below, don’t you think Wendell Ramos looks a bit like JDG? Just on that scene though…
I would love to see the whole of the drama, but I guess I’ll have to wait until spring when I’ll have more time… Ooh, the photos remind me that I need to get a new flat screen stand.
