[OSEN=Oh Minhee] KBS 2TV ‘The Pretty Man’ that airs on Wednesdays and Thursdays will end today (9th). ‘The Pretty Man’, which became the center of attention since the first episode with the meeting of Jang Keun Suk and IU, recorded low viewing rate even with a fun and interesting story and a cartoon-like producing, leaving sadness behind. Even then, the cast members stood firm. Especially, Jang Keun Suk showed off his wide open charm by going back and forth between characteristics of pretending as if nothing happened and seriousness.

In the 15th episode of KBS 2TV ‘The Pretty Man’ that aired on January 8th, Dokgo Ma Te (Jang Keun Suk) realizes his love towards Kim Bo Tong (IU) and starts dating, but because of the threat from Na Hong Ran (Kim Bo Yeon), Ma Te declaring a break-up with Bo Tong was shown.

Ma Te, who finally realized his love, even tried to propose to Bo Tong but because Bo Tong was kidnapped by Na Hong Ran, he decided to give up. It was to protect Bo Tong. Even if crying in deep sorrow as he decided to break up with Bo Tong and is having a hard time, he volunteered to be the evil character who give insults that is not what he means at all just for Bo Tong, creating a feeling of pity.

In this process, Jang Keun Suk, who plays the role of Dokgo Ma Te, acted out the man in love with a soft smile, warm looks in the eye and a friendly speech. He cried in deep sorrow regarding a break-up. Jang Keun Suk even bit his lips tight to control his emotions and with a very small trembling of the face, he vividly conveyed an unbearable sadness. It was a part where we could see Jang Keun Suk’s accumulated skill and experience.

Until now, the man with a devilish personality Dokgo Ma Te matured by meeting several successful women. From a rich woman Jackhee (So Yoo Jin), he learned the value of money and he learned how to read minds when he met Elec lady (Kim Ye Won), who can read people’s minds. From the queen of human relationships Kim In Joong (Cha Hyun Jung), he learned how to manage human relationships. In addition, he met Myo Mi (Park Ji Yoon), Gwi Ji (Kim Bora), Yigim (Jeong Sun Kyung) and Yeomim (Jeong Min Joo) and learned the ways to be successful from successful women. From an immature man who only bragged while having faith in his handsome looks, he matured into someone with internal stability.

To such an unfolding of the story, Jang Keun Suk showed various styles and transformation through acting, presenting a work that gives joy to both the eyes and the ears. He even pulled off childish lines pretending as if it is nothing. He was somewhat mean to IU but to older women, he appealed to them with devilish sexiness. He showed off different kinds of charms and lived up to his name. The low viewing rate was too bad but the charm of Jang Keun Suk widely opened through ‘The Pretty Man’.

Meanwhile, ‘The Pretty Man’ is a work that shows the process of the devilish man Dokgo Ma Te (Jang Keun Suk), who has looks that is of a national treasure level, finding a true love in the end after stealing the minds of top 1% women in Korea. For the next continuing work of ‘The Pretty Man’, ‘Age of Feeling’ in which Kim Hyun Joong, Lim Soo Hyang and Jin Se Yeon and so on shows up will be on air.
