In Hyena (2006), he was the guy who left his girl for a reason he could not reveal even to his closest friends. (That drama, incidentally, is one of the best offerings from Korean cable TV. If you’re below 19 years old, don’t watch it; if you aren’t, don’t miss it! Sweet, smart, funny, uplifting… I about floated out of my skin watching it.) In Thank You (2007), he again left his girl, this time not even realizing he had fathered a child with her.
