The outcome of watching High School King of Savvy [고교처세왕/高校处世王] (I’m putting the Chinese title here because it’s the only way I understand how cute and apt it is) is that I am a newly minted Seo In Guk stan.
I loved Seo In Guk in Reply 1997 (2012) – it’s the only reason why I even started High School King – but Eunji was the star of Reply 1997 and he was often just her foil. I loved him in No Breathing (2013) too, but the movie didn’t have enough emotional weight for me. Master’s Sun (2013) was clumsy and contrived for me; I never really understood Kang Woo’s character, and was never invested enough to like him even though he was a suited sweet second lead.
I don’t love High School King like I loved Reply 1997 obviously, but there are not many dramas I love like Reply 1997. For the most part it was enjoyable, but there were a couple of key things that irked me. But that’s another story for another day. My point is that Seo In Guk, if nothing else, was brilliant. He absolutely ran away with the show. Now and then he has a vague sense of uncertainty in his acting (which you can still see with Hyungsuk), but Seo In Guk played Lee Minsuk like he was real inside and out, and with incredible chemistry with the rest of the cast. He basically was the life of High School King and it was his show through and through. (Which is why one of the things I have major gripes with is how the finale somehow became about Sooyoung.)
Now that Minsuk (and DukSuk the best sidekicks ever) is no more I feel this emptiness inside and I’m not really sure what to do about it. Because I don’t actually want to watch High School King again. So it’s Seo In Guk’s music that keeps me alive and happy, and, as stans do, I’m listening to his entire Korean discography. Well okay most of it.
After this cut is a long ass post about his music.
does anybody else think tired and sleepy mean two totally different things
sleepy is cute and dozing off and happy but tired is 10 cups of coffee and murder
reblogging because the last graphic comment is FLAWLESS
Henry finally spoke in english a lot. He said digital album was coming out today and to please download it (his exact words were kind of ‘you can download it in melon… and etc like whatever place you can download’ lol).
One of the fans had sore throat and she told Henry that it didn’t matter…
