This is a last look at Haechi…for now!
Ever since the Official Haechi Website became active, I have delighted in the many behind the scenes images of Jung Il-woo. You see, not only are they gorgeous!, they actually become larger than life when you click on them. And I mean big…! I have an Apple desktop computer which where I do most of my work… and when I click on the photos they became so huge that I can see only part of the photo. So when I move around the photo, I see every detail in our dear Oppa’s gorgeous face. So I thought I’d share some of these close ups… they are in the order of the episodes. Cr. SBS
Here they are:
Weren’t they just WOOndrous?! When looking so closely one can see the intensity of his acting, in his face we see the traces of physical effort, of emotion and the the power of the real Jung Il-woo. Those eyes seem to be at times like lasers that scan every bit of the situation… I get the feeling that when he would look at one, he would see every bit… yet those eyes do no judge… they just take it all in as is. There are things he prefers of course but he has the eyes of now, of living the moment… so he values everything he sees… he lives it!
I also notice in this photos when he is tired or hurt… his lips say a lot… you can see in some of the photos some darker patches on his lips… he is still suffering of outbreaks of sores for the physical effort he puts in, and they are editing the photos and video so we can’t tell…but with these close ups… one can!
Oh dearest Oppa, I send good energy to those lips!
I also pray for your eyes… I can see how puffy they become when you are tired…
Onto my final observations on Haechi. I thought it was the perfect return drama for Jung Il-woo. It was filmed in a more secluded space which meant less people on sets looking at him, so he could concentrate better and get back to the swing of things. It was also a role that showcased all his best acting attributes: being emotional, being silly and flirty and his very strong king like demeanor… strength and wiseness to lead!
Having the lovely Go Ara as his female lead, was so good as they know each other from the earlier years, so it was a comfortable situation he didn’t have to stress about. Like filming with an old friend. It was unfortunate Go Ara was hurt as maybe it would have been even more successful of a drama if it went deeper romantically… but on the bright side, it gave more of the spotlight to Jung Il-woo and his character.
Everything about it was first class… the plot, writing and direction, the photography and art direction, and of course it was perfectly cast! what a way to come back Il-woo Ssi!
I’m so glad! God bless you Il-woo for all you do to delight us! Thank you for Haechi! What a memorable role for you!
And all the best in the next one! (Praying for the best!)
My favorite Haechi photo from these? It’s this one:
Smiling with the petals falling all around him.
