Khottie of the Week: Jung Il Woo

Khottie of the Week

springlooksmilwoo7This week’s Khottie has been inspired by the lovely Stephanie keeping us up to date on Cinderella and the Four Knights.  I have all my fingers and toes crossed that Jung Il Woo is going to be the romantic lead.  There is going to be a fangirl fit of epic proportions if he isn’t.

Oh my goodness, Jung Il Woo.  Who else here played the bias vs bias game?   Was he on your list too?  I just can’t with him.  I mean, look.


There is really something about him. He has a certain way of looking at a girl.


Flower Boy Ramen Shop started off a bit problematic for me.  I never mind an older woman and a younger guy.  I did mind a teacher and her student.  I would have abandoned it, but I got caught up in Jung Il Woo’s charisma and the interesting characters.


The infamous Kimchi Kiss.  Or really, Kimchi Lick.  Simultaneously sexy and gross.  Kdrama is confusing sometimes.photo210766

High End Crush is another one that I enjoyed.  Its a rather sweet little web drama that came out a few months ago that was discussed by Stephanie and Cherry on the podcast.  Its worth a watch for JIW being funny and romantic, and for the brooding shower scene.


Bonus:  Monsta X, with our hunky sleeveless Shownu, appear in the drama as a group JIW manages.

Jung Il Woo has done a ton of beautiful photo shoots.  It was so hard to choose which pictures to share with you.

That jawline.


So handsome in glasses.


This is one of my favorites of him.


Its that look again. The one that wins all the leading ladies.


And I’ll just drop this right here, so you can imagine…


I’m with Stephanie, and am not a huge fan of this thing they did with his bangs. But its a different look, and makes him look a little tough.


I like this preppy look.


Have you guys seen these?!  Done in 2009 (I think?) for Elle Girl.  Its fun to see him looking a little rebellious and street.

And a more updated, one.


Has anybody seen his movie The Rise of a Tomboy yet?  This is JIW singing one of the OST songs.  I’m not sure I like the song, but he sounds pretty good and the scenes look cute!


On top of being a multi-talented actor, model, and singer, he further wins my heart by being a dog lover.  Here he is with his dog, Awoo.


I’d ask you if this helped convince you to stan Jung Il Woo and watch all his dramas, but we all know…


Until next week!

    He’s just finished filming a Thai lakorn – Love and Lies (Thai title: Gon rak game ma ya) – and I’m hoping that means a bit more skin ship! But no more shorts on this guy – suits with shorts are a no-no.

      I know, right?! What the heck with the shorts and the long suit coat? It looks like you’re walking around with no pants. He has nice legs and all but yeah, no. Just, no. And thanks for letting me know about the Thai one! Keep us updated, ok? I’d definitely be willing to check it out.

    You may have to branch out and begin the nigh-on-unpronouncable Th-Hottie listing with male stars from Thailand. Generally a bit older and acting for longer (because of no military service) and willing to flash more skin ship. I’d recommend starting with Ken, Aom, Weir or Push.

      I’m willing to branch! I’ll add them to the Explore for Future Posts list. 🙂 Thank you! You rock.
