The Next Yoon Ji Hoo?
Jung Yong Hwa, playing Kang Shin Woo in You’re Beautiful, is receiving quite a bit of interest from fangirls in Korea. The netizens have dubbed him the second coming of Yoon Ji Hoo (Kim Hyung Joon’s character in Boys Over Flowers.) He’s search status has risen quickly since the broadcast of You’re Beautiful. Besides his activity activity in Japan, as part of indie band, C.N. Blue (Code Name Blue), there isn’t much more information about him.
He does remind me of Kim Hyung Joon (edit: HYUN JOONG! Thanks for the correction!) in Boys over Flowers a little bit. They’ve both started with pretty stiff and unnatural performance in their respective dramas. I like Jung Yong Hwa’s look a bit more though. Although I don’t know what their music sounds like, I’m atleast liking the indie band label. Hopefully his acting will get better as things progress. This is his first project so I’m sure there are growing pains.
