This past week I decided to finish off some shows that have been sitting on my currently watching list for what feels like quite a long time. I banged out a few that only had a couple of episodes left, and riding the high of success decided to tackle Mask which I wasn’t even halfway through. I love the premise of the show but, for me at least, it did not translate into a show I wanted to spend time on. The female lead was driving me crazy and, while I was curious to see how the main couple’s relationship progressed, it wasn’t enough to get over what was quickly becoming a hate-watch. Reading the reviews on MyDramaList made me think I should keep going so I thought I would feature Ju Ji Hoon and see where that left me.
Ju Ji Hoon, or Joo Ji Hoon, is a 37-year-old actor.
He started his career as a model (a long time ago).
He’s had a number of notable dramas…including Mask.
He also had a drug scandal in 2009 that resulted in a suspended sentence…followed closely by his military service.
He’s been generating recent buzz due to Kingdom and Kingdom 2.
Which I haven’t seen and likely will not due to the zombies but per podcast discussions it’s very good.
How could it not be…with an age-appropriate hottie.
Well, age-appropriate for all of us at Kchat Jjigae.
Almost enough to get me to watch Kingdom, even with my strong zombie dislike.
It’s almost enough…
In the 9 episodes I’ve seen of Mask, I realized I don’t think he’s ever smiled.
And he really should, as he has a nice smile.
Totally changes up his demeanor.
And who knew there might actually be dimples there too.
And if anyone has watched Mask, let me know if I should push through and keep going!
