Eye Candy : Ju Ji Hoon for Harper's Bazaar

Model turned actor Ju Ji Hoon's acting breakthrough came with a charismatic performance as crown prince Lee Shin in Princess Hours (Goong) based on the Manhwa that imagined South Korea as a fictional monarchy. While he proved that he had the talent to go along with those handsome looks, Ji Hoon's career and personal life had some ups and downs and following his mandatory military service, he made a steady comeback which has resulted in a recent resurgence with the success of the action thriller Asura: The City of Madness and the two part fantasy Along With the Gods which sounds fascinating. He is also slated to star in Netflix's upcoming zombie period drama, Kingdom in the role of a crown prince (again!) who sets out to investigate a mysterious plague. I believe that role was originally offered to Song Joong Ki who declined because he had just gotten married at the time. I just looked up Goong because it feels like an age since I watched it and that drama came out in 2006. I had such a crush on Ji Hoon after Princess Hours and Antique Bakery but that was short lived.  It's evident from this Harper's Bazaar editorial entitled Elegant Decadence that the 36 year old actor is still as attractive as ever in the physical sense and he's still got those model moves. I love the image where he appears to be peering into a room.

It isn't that common that a model turned actor has the talent and the looks. I can of course only judge the looks right now, but he is very handsome for sure.

I am surprised, I really love all of the images in this set, very artistic. Especially like the one that you've mentioned where he is seemingly peeping in a room. They did good styling there.

Ever since I saw his performance (only lately) in "마왕" I started looking for this actor's dramas (not interested in Romance, give me the real drama). If you haven't seen him, he might look like just a pretty face who probably overacts (I hesitated about watching K-drama because I thought that they tended to overact). To my surprise (quite a pleasant surprise) he and the other actor were EXCELLENT ACTORS! (Now I'm watching Mask. I understand he won an award for that? I was rather disappointed to find that he was nominated but did not win for 마왕. I hope to see more of this man's acting. He's good! Good is an understatement...EXCELLENT!
