Similarities between Lee Sun Gyun and Kim Joo Hyuk

For those who are reasonably familiar with the Korean drama world, these two names should not be unfamiliar.

Lee Sun Gyun‘s recently drama work including Triple (MBC, currently airing), My Sweet City (SBS, 2008), The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince (MBC, 2007), White Tower (MBC, 2007) – all very nice – I like them all.  He’s also productive in films ( I watched Our Town).  He got married recently to actress Jun Hye Jin – congrats again.

Kim Joo Hyuk‘s latest drama was Terroir (SBS, 2008).  The one before Terroir was Lovers in Prague (SBS, 2005).  I watched two of his movies – My Wife is Married, and I Don’t Need Love.  ( ** His girlfriend is actress Kim Ji Soo.  They are both under the same agency, Namoo Actors. ** This is no longer the case as announced by their agency on Oct 7:  the two are no longer in a lovers’ relationship started 6 years ago.  They remain as good friends.  I wish time mend their broken hearts.)

I find them similar in some qualities.

First, both of their voices are really nice.  Lee Sun Gyun has been crowned as “Mr. Voice” by many netizens.  I think Kim Joo Hyuk’s voice is also very charming and deep, and I think Kim Joo Hyuk’s voice is more to my likings.

Second, I think they look similar.  The photo of Kim Joo Hyuk in wiki d-addicts looks fuller and more pale than his looks in dramas and movies.  I’ve never seen his face this “round” and pale.  They are both handsome as a Korean – not cutey handsome, but manly handsome.  🙂

Third, they are both very good actors.

Fourth, their other half is a good actress. (Oct 8 update: unfortunately this statement is no longer true…)

Fifth, they are both 180 cm of height.

I think it would be fun to see them in a k-drama – perhaps as long-lost brothers – not as rivalry siblings – I hate to have to side with only one of them.   🙂

    As much as I appreciate both men as actors, I think Kim Joo Hyuk gets the nod (okay, don’t think, know/believe) as the better actor. He’s one of the best, able to be convincing in everything he does. His work in “Blue Swallow” is so intense it hurts, and the amount of emotion he can convey with just his eyes (think about his breaking up with Jun Doyeon’s character in “Lovers in Prague”) is amazing. But, bottom line, I look to both men to do great work and entertain me.

      I’ll try to catch Blue Swallow – thx for the recommendation.

    […] was interested in seeing more work of both leads, Jun Do Yeon and Kim Joo Hyuk (whom I have briefly discussed before).  Then I came across this movie, “You Are My Sunshine” (2005, Korean Movie) […]

    I like Kim Joo Hyuk the most. He got good looks good voice, and he acts naturally, you can really feel the emotions conveyed just by looking in his eyes. He is indeed very charming. However, I find it frustrating that he seldom make dramas. I like to see him more in a full length drama, i hope that his agency will cast him in another drama in the future.

      HI irene,
      Kim Joo Hyuk is booked to do a drama, Story of Bang Ja (like Delightful Girl Chun Hyang, but the counter part version…), and another movie, Sleeping with The Enemy. These would come out soon. I also miss his work.

    hi Jean,

    Looking at the posts in your website, I am really late appreciating Korean drama.

    We seem to be similar. Of late, since watching Pasta and re-watching Terroir, I like both the actors too. They exude a certain distinctive charm about the way they speak. Forget about those Hollywood’s Harrison Ford and even Brad Pitt, these Korean actors are so charming and absolutely enchanting.

    Way to go, Korean drama. Its been wonderful for me in my spare time to engage in such enjoyable delights. Re-watching them and appreciating the acting skills and storyline has been good too.

    btw, what is Kim Joo Hyuk’s latest drama?

    Will you recommend I try to get ” Lovers in Prague’? What other dramas should I catch of him?

    Thanks Jean

      hi Joanneh,

      I am not sure if KJH has newer drama released after Terroir, but he has made some movies since then – namely Fighting Spirit, Bang-ja Chronicles and Couples. His older movies are also nice.

      He has also just recently hosted a comedy show Saturday Night Live Korea, and appeared in a variety show Running Man.

      He will be in MBC’s drama Soldier to be aired next year.

      If you do not know about other k-entertainment blog sites, I’m gonna to recommend you to the following for more news on KJH:

      Lovers in Praque is fun to watch. Other than KJH, you’ll find charming Jun Do Yeon, handsome Kim Min Joon, cool Ha Jung Woo and the young&adorable Jang Geun Suk.

      Have fun!

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
