Catching Up with Jo Seung-woo

My love for Jo Seung-woo is no secret. So as a fan, I do try to keep up with his works. But it's been frustratingly difficult to do so. Aside from the surprising enter to dramas, he's only done movies and musicals. I can't do anything about musicals, unless someone wants to fly me out to Seoul. But I can do something about movies. Somehow. It takes a while, but it happens.

First Take: Valid Love

A frustrated drama fan might wish for polyandry for their leads when it seems like one is just not enough. Okay, so maybe that's just me. But that wish is coming true, sort of, in the form of tvN's Valid Love. A married woman comes to find herself falling in love with a young construction worker, and her husband makes it his mission to prove to her that her love for this man is invalid. What could have been an excruciating melo may in fact become an exploration of human desire and love.

Welcome back, Yoo Seung-ho!

It's always great to see an actor come back from army duty and the usual comments of "two years has flown by!" will come. And they did. I don't usually talk about the comings and goings of celebrity soldiers, but since I made a post about Yoo Seung-ho leaving for the army two years ago (when he was just barely 20!), I thought it's appropriate to talk about him coming back. So... welcome back Yoo Seung-ho! You have been missed, and we can't wait for you to come back on our screens once again.
