Sometimes, we just have to give it up for the more mature and debonair “hotties”. My choice for this week’s EolJjang is more than a handsome face. He is an actor, a film director, an artist, and a published author. This man continues to impress me.
I don’t think I will ever get enough of Ha Jung Woo.
Ah Jin and I are anxiously awaiting the July 2015 release of the South Korean film, Assassination, starring Ha Jung Woo, Jun Ji Hyun and Lee Jung Jae. We have different reasons for wanting to see this film and it has nothing to do with the plot but every reason to do with Ha Jung Woo and Jun Ji Hyun.
But while I wait for his new movie, I just downloaded a more recent film that he has starred in, Chronicle of a Blood Merchant, with Ha Ji Won. Besides that, there is an abundance of films that can tied me over until July such as Kundo: Age of the Rampant, The Berlin Files , and Love Fiction.
It’s also good that you can appreciate an actor for their other talents. In this case, Ha Jung Woo is an established artist. His painting style is a mixture of pop and expressionist styles and seems to be inspired by the American artist, Jean-Michel Basquiat. He is known to have several showings throughout the year. Hopefully, I will get to make one in my lifetime but for now, I am on the hunt for his 2011 essay compilation, Good Feeling.
