For today, I wanted to feature a well loved Second Lead male actor that we have all come to love—Ji Soo Oppa. (Okay technically he is younger, but as my spirit animal Ahn Yo Na says, if you are handsome, you are my Oppa.)
Anyways, I have now seen him in three dramas which officially gives him a spot in my favorite actors pool. (I only allow actors/actresses that I have seen in three or more roles and still absolutely adore, which is why someone as awesome as Ji Soo wasn’t there yet.)
I first saw him in Doctor Crush, where he played a third? lead character.
He was hilarious though and like, super hot. Then I noticed him in Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, obviously. He was the second lead there. And although I never wanted him to get the girl, he really made me feel his paid of not getting the girl.
Then I was watching Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo to try and move on past SWDBS, and there was the lovely Ji Soo again!
So yeah, he has been in a ton of dramas but he never gets the girl. (Except Scarlet Heart but I don’t really think that counts…so yeah.)
I think we are all in agreement that he needs to be cast in a main lead role and soon. But meanwhile, I wanted to share what I love best about this actor. Yes, he is gorgeous…
And he loves dogs….
But the thing I like about him the most, is the way the male lead always reacts to him:

Strong Woman Do Bong Soon
There was SO much to pick from for SWDBS, but I haven’t finished going through the whole series a second time to get the screenshots. And this was kinda my favorite scene anyways.

Here is an article from dramafever with some facts about Ji Soo:
The most important one is going to be that if given the choice he stated he preferred older girls than younger ones. Noonas! Unite! Let’s go to Korea now and kidnap him!

I made some really awesome (in my opinion) gifs for this but my wordpress account is not capable of gifs apparently. Sad times. But at least I had fun making them. Here is a link for all the gifs I made for this post (well and for SWDBS) that will sadly never get used:
