It has come to my attention from several of our readers that I have been remiss in doing a Fangirl Stalking post for my ultimate bias of all time Seo In Guk. It isn’t because I don’t love him (as we all know that I do) but just the thought that I write about him so much that I might annoy people with my fangirl exuberance. But obviously that is not the case since we have had requests so without further ado……here are my thoughts on Seo In Guk’s filmography!
The Rules of Fangirl Stalking:
We will start with 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/actress featured). These are the shows that are for die-hard fans who want to watch everything. So let’s jump into obsessing about Seo In Guk!
Answer Me 1997
I have watched this drama from start to finish more times than any other drama (14 times to be exact) and it has definitely remained a favorite. It combines humor, romance, and slice of life storytelling for a unique and memorable drama. Not to mention that Seo In Guk’s character Yoon Jae truly is the perfect package. If you don’t believe me, check out the hilarious SNL Korea skit that is all about how to become just like Yoon Yoon Jae.
King of High School Savvy
With an amazing cast, brilliant soundtrack, and hijinks galore, King of High School Savvy is the perfect Rom-Com for any occasion. I will admit that some people have issues with the age difference but it didn’t personally bother me so it goes on my “must watch” list. I loved every minute and also believe this drama has some of Seo In Guk’s best skinship scenes to date. The sling kiss still takes my breath away anytime I watch it.
Shopping King Louie
My Second “must watch” recommendation is also a rom-com although this time it involves a sexy sweet chaebol who gets amnesia and has to learn to live on a budget. But before you start getting upset at the overused chaebol/amnesia/rags to riches tropes be assured that this first-time screenwriter has managed to make every moment of this drama seem new and fresh. If you want something high in romance and Seo In Guk than this is the drama for you.
I Remember You
Serial Killers, separated siblings, and bromance all combine to make this story one of my favorite dramas of all time. You never know what to expect when you are watching and the interaction between the three leading men took dysfunctional to a whole new level. So if you are looking for a show that is heavy on the bromance and dead bodies then this is the drama for you.
Depending On My Mood
38 Task Force
I appreciated how this drama went out of the usually tropes to create something different. However, I am not sure everyone can get past the lack of romance and complicated multi episode cons to really enjoy it…hence its location on my list.
Seo In Guk plays an alien who is on a mission to look hot…..oops. I mean he is on a mission to find out why humans cry tears. But he really does also look really hot in this five episode web drama. My only complaint is that it was too short to really delve into his character’s
The Master’s Sun
I love this show. Sadly, Seo In Guk is not the lead so that is why it is in the “depending on the mood” category. I was also slightly worried at how thin he looked but thankfully he seems to have put on some weight since.
For the Die Hard Fans
The King’s Face
The King’s Face is proof that not even Seo In Guk can save a drama with a weak plot and mopey leading lady. I finished the show but would urge anyone out there reading this to give this drama a skip.
This drama has the distinction of being the only Seo In Guk drama that I dropped. I couldn’t get into his cheating scummy character and after 10 episodes I didn’t even care if he became a better person in the end. This drama is a huge “meh” for me.
BONUS Seo In Guk
As an added bonus I thought I would share my favorite music videos featuring my #1 bias. Since not only is Seo in Guk a stellar actor but he also has a thriving musical career. So in no specific order, please enjoy some musical Seo In Guk.
With Laughter or Tears (Sad romantic song that makes me want to watch a chick-flick is always a winner.)
Seasons of My Heart (SQUEEE! The kisses)
OMG (Collaboration with Double K. Who knew SIG could rap?)
Would You (Duet with Swings)
Loved You (Duet with Zia and one of my all time favorite Seo In Guk song)
Shake it Up (Early SIG )
All For You (Answer Me 1997 OST Duet)
OK… I better stop since I could literally go for hours talking about the awesomeness that is Seo In Guk. I hope you enjoyed this edition of Fangirl Stalking and be sure to let us know who you would like to see stalked in future posts. You never know, your bias might be our next stalkee.
Til our next stalking adventure,
