Playful Kiss started its run with a rough start but as the end nears, the numbers of online and international fans have skyrocketed. Much of that “mania” fan base is due to the two charismatic leads, Jung So-min and Kim Hyun-joong. Jung plays the sweet bubbly Oh Ha-ni while KHJ plays the stoic Bak Seung-Jo. Audiences from all over eagerly await every week for the progression of Oh Ha-ni and Bak Seung-jo’s cute love story.
Those that were so disappointed with KHJ’s previous acting abilities on Boys Over Flowers were pleasantly surprised. One could actually see his growth as an actor in Playful Kiss.
I’m a huge KHJ fan because of WGM. His chemistry and honesty with Hwangbo was what impressed me. Because of that, I watched BOF until the bitter end. There was a lot of disappointment on my side because BOF was what separated them and in the end he was only decent in it. However, because of his good looks and his “Ji-hoo” character many people became curious about KHJ and in turn they discovered JOONGBO. For that I am thankful. The same could be said about Playful Kiss. Because his acting has improved, KHJ has gained more fans, which means his new fans will have exposure of the JOONGBO love!!! That means many more people will exposed to Hwangbo's greatness and that is always a great thing!!!
Btw, many of you know I'm helping out this month because SH has a hectic schedule, but I really want to use this opportunity to thank SH for making it so easy to be a SSanchu couple fan. There were many times when I couldn't find an episode or when one was not working....I could always depend on her for updated posts and videos!!! Even when she is busy...she will still make time to update (as you can see)!! Thanks SH =p
