Ask and you will receive! We had a request to start writing actor bios covering various star’s filmography and whether the shows are worth watching. I especially like this kind of thing so am happy to be writing our first article in our new segment “Fangirl Stalking” starring everyone’s golden boy Song Joong Ki. If there are specific actors you are interested in having us cover, be sure to give us a shout out in the comments.
I figure the best way to go about this is first sharing the dramas I think are must watch works by the actor. Followed by the shows that could go either way. This means that they are worth watching in my opinion, but I know there are some people who don’t like the genre. Lastly, we will cover the dramas/movies that you really could skip and not miss much (at least in regards of the actor featured). These are the shows that are for those die-hard fans who want to watch everything. So come join me as we jump right in to all things Song Joong Ki.
Sungkyunkwan Scandal – S Scandal (that name still gives me issues 5 years later) was the first drama I ever watched that included Song Joong Ki in the cast. While SJK wasn’t one of the OTP, I felt that he was the runaway character of the show…….and with my heart. Think extreme busybody who loves to cause mischief in the form of a khottie and you have Ku Yong-Ha. He was truly a joy to watch.
Running Man – A lot of you probably don’t realize that Song Joong Ki was one of the original members of the Running Man cast. He played the hot brainiac of the group and was around for about 80 episodes. I was devastated when he left but at least we will always have recorded evidence of when Song Joong Ki and Kwang Soo became BFF’s. You can check out the Running Man early years now on Dramafever. I personally think they are some of the best of the whole series.
Werewolf Boy – This movie was that moment when Song Joong Ki went from regular khottie to critically acclaimed darling. Filmed right before he entered his military service, Song Joong Ki stunned audiences with his portrayal of a feral boy falling in love.
Depending On The Mood
The Innocent Man (Nice Guy) – This drama is actually a 10 in my books. However, I know that a lot of people don’t really enjoy the revenge genre as much as I do. As for me, I will always be a fan of Kang Ma Roo’s (SJK) broken blank gaze as he seduces an unsuspecting Moon Chae-Won
Descendants of the Sun – I personally think this is Song Joong Ki’s best character to date. Sadly, the same can not be said of the writing and his co-star. So watch it for Song Joong Ki and maybe if you stare at him enough you can ignore the sub-par plot.
For the Die Hard Fan
Tree With Deep Roots – This is yet another drama that I absolutely love. However, Song Joong Ki only played the younger version of the famous Joseon King, Lee Do. After 3 episodes we say goodbye to our royal hottie and jump 20 years in the future. Still worth a check for those die-hard fans. Or anyone who also loves Jang Hyuk.
Penny Pinchers – I didn’t really enjoy this movie. Sure there were random cute scenes but as a whole it was very forgettable. Watch this if you need fluffy Song Joong Ki filler but don’t go in expecting something amazing.
This concludes the first ever Fangirl Stalking. I look forward to covering a lot more asian actors in the future. Remember to let me know if there is anyone specific you would like to see featured.
Til next time,
