Starting fresh with a new haircut and a new drama, Jang Keun Suk shared that he hopes to regain his title as Jang Keun Suk, the actor.

On November 18, Jang Keun Suk participated in the press conference for his upcoming KBS drama, Pretty Boy with his co-stars, IU, Lee Jang Woo, and Han Chae Young at the Imperial Palace located in Nonhyun-dong.

When asked why he decided to appear in this drama, Jang Keun Suk responded, “When I read the original comic book, I thought it would be a project that will be fun and worthy of trying.”

“I also thought that the character was very Jang Keun Suk.”

“I want to regain the image of Jang Keun Suk the actor,” said Jang Keun Suk. “In Japan, I am ‘Keun-chan.’ In China, I’m ‘Jjang Keun Seuk. I decided on this project hoping to regain my name, Jang Keun Suk.”

In this upcoming drama, Jang Keun Suk will be playing Dokgo Matte, who is overflowing with handsome looks and charms. He is a character who attempts to seduce 10 women who are ranked the top one percent in Korea.

Based on the comic book Pretty Boy by Cheon Gye Young, the story is about Dokgo Matte, who hopes to grow as a real ‘pretty boy’ by seducing women. Meanwhile, Kim Botong (IU) is a woman who only has eyes for Dokgo Matte, foreshadowing an unbalanced love story to unfold.

The drama script was written by Yoo Young Ah, who also wrote the screenplay for The Present in Room Seven. The drama will be directed by Jung Jung Hwa, who was in charge of Flower Boy Next Door and Flower Boy Ramen Shop.

The drama will air on November 20.

  1. Yes so do I…
    I hope everybody can enjoy this work for what it’s worth…and I believe together with a lot of good looks there is a very beautiful story behind it…
    Our Boy does not accept work that is just so so…

  2. Why he has to regain the image as an actor? He IS a great actor. I have been following his performances in all the films and TV series. I think he is flawless. I love films and have been watching films for more than 50 years (since I was 12 ). I am a film lover and I am still watching international films and series. I now watch Korean films and TV series. For me Jang Keun Suk is as great as James Dean, Toshiro Mifune, Yun Fat Chow, Dilip Kumar. These are all legendary international stars that are still in the hearts of millions of audience around the world. Korean should be proud of your son and give him more moral support not pampering but more CONSTRUCTIVE, please.

  3. Someone on Facebook asked me to post the name of my favorite actor… and of course the person that came to mind was Jang Keun Suk. Then when I realized she wouldn’t know who that was… I tried to come up with an American actor she might know… and it took me several minutes to even think of one! LOL
