Yesterday I happened upon some pictures from the upcoming saeguk based on a popular contemporary movie, My Sassy Girl. I remember now that this drama was happening, I vaguely remember the hullabaloo regarding the casting of the leading lady, but it was more of a ‘huh, that’s right, that’s a thing’ but what threw me for a loop was the fact that the hero of the piece is Joo Won. I sat back.
‘Joo Won? I completely forgot about him.’
For real. How long has it been since his last drama? And wasn’t that Yongpal? Did he do some movies I didn’t know about? Sometimes he takes a little musical detour. Could he have been there? Why haven’t we heard anything at all from him? Honestly, we get more press from guys doing their military service than we had from him.
Makes you wonder, who else are we forgetting about? What other popular (even though technically I haven’t watched a drama of his since Tomorrow Cantabile) actors and actresses are out there hanging in a forgotten limbo.
I’d tell you, but obviously I have forgotten them.
I feel like we should have some sort of role call. It’s almost 2017, do you know where your kstars are? Man. Not kidding, this is really bothering me now. Kind of funny how a random post about a drama I have no intention on watching has stuck with me so long.
Well, where ever you were hiding, Joo Won, I’m happy to have you back. Now, try not to slip away again because obviously we are fickle, fickle creatures and more importantly sometimes absence does not make the heart grow fonder.
Sometimes we just forget about you.
