[blog] move over Kim Woo-bin, Ahn Jae-hyeon is here

Anyone who is watching MAN FROM THE STARS would have noticed this pretty boy who plays the rebellious, reticent younger brother of Cheon Song-yi (Jun Ji-hyun). He’s known in the drama as Yoon-jae but he goes by the name of Ahn Jae-Hyeon.

Just like Kim Woo-bin, he came from the modeling world.

He’s apparently been in music videos but judging from my poor knowledge of K-pop, I wouldn’t know which.

It’s a pity that he’s given a few scenes and even fewer speaking lines in the drama because he seems to have the potential. Of course there’s nothing new nor groundbreaking about his role but acting alongside JJH and Kim Soo-hyun is guaranteed to give him exposure, not to mention that MAN FROM THE STARS is this season’s drama darling.

I’m actually surprised that he’s already 27. That’s kind of late to start in the acting business but then, well, he was a model. So.

I hope that he gets a lead role in his next project. It would be nice to give the likes of Lee Min-ho, Kim soo-hyun (who is, surprise, surprise, younger than this dude) and yes, Kim Woo-bin, some tough competition.

  1. I like him in Man from the Star, but I want him to show more of his skills before he gets a lead role. There are plenty of talented actors out there that have shown they can act, but haven’t yet been leads.

    Kim Woo-bin himself hasn’t had a lead role yet, in fact (and he’s miles better than LMH). Or Kim Jae-wook is another woeful example, one that makes me even more upset because he’s been second lead next to people (Taecyeon) who can’t act at all.


  2. i don’t pay attention on him so much, but now knowing his age i looked for the music video. it’s very interesting that it’s one of the most controversial mv of 2012. k.will’s Please don’t. maybe he looks so mature on the mv that’s why no one could remember that he’s on that video.
