Photo Spam: Ji Hyun Woo in “Mr. Idol” (Warning: Lots of pics. Lots.)

Mr. Idol

 

 

 

This movie requires no brain power whatsoever. It is basically a patchwork of different scenes just thrown together. There is no character development and the plot is so cliche, a five-year-old could have written it. Basically someone in the movie industry wanted to cash in on the idol trend so he hired some slipshot writer, coerced veteran actors to star in it, threw in some eye candy, and hoped for the best. You can’t even be angry at this movie because it’s just so surface level. The only redeeming point about this movie is of course, Ji Hyun Woo, and the sprinkling of comedy. I actually enjoyed the comedy. Ji Hyun Woo had some good deadpan delivery and there was some physical humor. I don’t think any of the actors took this project too seriously, which is good, but they did their job with what they were given. I don’t think I can blame them for this bad movie.

Mr. Idol

Anyway, a brief summary. Ji Hyun Woo plays Lee Yoo Jin who was originally going to debut as a rock band member under Star Music Entertainment some years ago. Unfortunately, their music was deemed unprofitable and the band was dropped from the agency. Lee Yoo Jin then worked odd jobs here and there to support his family of a father, sister, and her two children, one of which is constantly ill. After a coincidental meeting, he is scouted by Park Ye Jin, the producer of the idol group, Mr. Children, and he joins the group as the lead vocal. Nothing goes well for this group and they start from the bottom, holding performances at hospitals and other charity institutions. Gradually they gain a following and are able to top the charts.

Unfortunately, Star Music Entertainment releases a falsely edited video interview of Lee Yoo Jin bashing idols during his audition and Mr. Children goes bust. But just as Park Ye Jin is about to leave the country, giving up on Mr. Children for good, Lee Yoo Jin hears a message she recorded for him and decides to give one last performance at an end of the year music show. Things end successfully for Mr. Children and they disband. It is alluded to at the end of the film that Lee Yoo Jin finally gets to do his band music. Hurrah.

Now for the fun. Here’s the photo spam. Organized by editions. Watch out for some snark and fangirling.

The Plaid Edition– I love Ji Hyun Woo in plaid and jeans. I think it’s my favorite look on him.

He speaks Chinese in this scene because he is working as a tour guide. Adorable.

Ji Hyun Woo should never carry around an umbrella.

Mr. Idol

Strut it, brother!

Mr. Idol

Ji Hyun Woo- “I heard that bells ring when you kiss someone.”

Mr. Idol

Kisses her for to see if bells will ring.

Mr. Idol

Ji Hyun Woo- Feels nothing.
Park Ye Jin- “I need a drink.”
Fangirl to Park Ye Jin- “You’re not Yoo In Na.”

I see Boong-Do when he smiles like this. Not the scholar. Not the swordsman. But the player.

Mr. Idol

Steaming up the room, one Chinese restaurant at a time.

Mr. Idol

Dear Santa, I want one of these for Christmas this year. Love, fangirl.

Mr. Idol

I have no caption for this. Let’s just bath in the beauty quietly.

Mr. Idol

Quiet…

Mr. Idol

Quiet!

Mr. Idol

Outside the women’s bathroom.
Ji Hyun Woo- “What do women do in there?”

“I won’t think about too hard.”

“Thought about it!”

Mr. Idol

“I’m getting angrier.”

Mr. Idol

“Pissed off.”

Mr. Idol

Yes, that is Ji Hyun Woo doing a headstand. According to the movie, if you don’t know how to do the headstand, you can’t dance. I can’t believe Park Ye Jin said it with a straight face.

Mr. Idol

Trying to run away from idol training.

Ji Hyun Woo- “AHHHHH!!!!!”

Mr. Idol

Ji Hyun Woo- “I may be smiling but I’ve danced this stupid dance thousands of times. Now I have to do it soaking wet. I hope you fangirls are enjoying this.

    Thank you sooooo much for this. I was wondering about the movie, but I was not “that brave” to see the actual movie, ’cause I heard lots of …. things… I think I saw the whole movie. Thank you again.

    Thank you Joonni for these wonderful photos (…sigh..). JHW now is 100 times more attractive than several years ago. He certainly gets better (looks wise and acting too) with experience and age! He was no where near as sexy and smoking hot as he is now,especially in QIHM, than when I last saw him in the drama “Invincible Lee Phyung Khang?” (not sure of the spelling of the name).

      Not a lot of people look better with age but you’re right. JHW seems to be doing that. Another reason to love him.

  3. I agree he looked like a teenager…now he looks like a MAN. I don’t know what he eats or what vitamins he takes but think he should continue. Could this man be anymore adorable?

      Yep… you hit the nail on the head. He does look like a REAL MAN now…. hope he gets better and better – looking forward to some serious abs following his stint in the army.

      • if you scroll up from your reply someone put all of the links for his abs photos for Mr. Idol…watch at your own risk…they should have a warning DANGEROUS to your Health….not for the faint of heart.
