Ah, Chun Jung-myung.
Bring a cranky baby to him and I’m sure he’ll have it cooing in minutes. A granny with decades of tales to tell will find a captive audience in him. And if you’re moving, he’ll be there bright and early and he’ll stay to help you unpack, too.
Such are the vibes that Chun Jung-myung exudes, of someone sweet and without airs. And that smile. Have you seen a smile like his, so wide and so infectious, the joy bubbling over? It’s like hot chocolate on a frigid day.
But it isn’t just his personality that I love. He is a damn fine actor, too. Just ask my friend and fellow fansubber, misterX. In his review of Fashion Seventies, X wrote:
“It’s Cheon who really impresses. I remember seeing him on a Variety show (Happy Together) a few years ago, when he was still unknown, and thinking he looked like he could make an interesting actor. But I never expected him to mature into such a talent.”
Did X stop there? No. See this, from his Goodbye Solo review:
“…another winner from Cheon Jung-Myung, whose explosive raw talent is emerging at such a fast pace it’s quite intimidating. You’ll hear more about this guy soon.”
Well, we won’t be hearing about Chun Jung-myung for a spell because he reported for military service on Jan 2, 2008. So it’ll be another eight months before he returns to us as an actor. Let’s enjoy these images as we wait, shall we?
