So, um, since seeing a picspam for a Korean romantic comedy Seducing Mr. Perfect I have become rather, shall we say, fascinated by Daniel Henney, model, actor, and (apparently) singer.

Of course, fascination leads to picspams.

This is the man himself striding towards the camera in a purposeful way. I am not sure what he is selling, but I'd buy it.

In the shower. Selling something else.

A somewhat strange pose on the beach. All that salt water will ruin those clothes!

Daniel as the awesome character Philip, laughing with the heroine of Spring Waltz. Pity as secondary leading man he is doomed not to get the girl

Philip and hero of Spring Waltz lolling on a bed and laughing together. Very, very suspicious given that the hero is obsessed with finding his lost first love and yet has time to indulge in suggestive scenes.

Philip trying to persuade the heroine to go somewhere. I am not sure where because this one the DVD with the non existent subtitles and Chinese dubbing. But I suspect it was a bit of a disaster because he knows about the same amount of Korean I do and she knows three words of English.

And for those of you who don't think that Daniel Henney is freakishly good looking, here's a soulful shot of the hero of Spring Waltz playing piano.

Spring Waltz has some very odd subtitles. I'm a bit annoyed as I bought it as a legitimate copy. And on disc three they're out of whack with the sound, so you get the subtitle before they actually say the line.

Okay, I strongly suspect that Philip did not just say to the empty room of the hero:

"While you were gone I enjoyed for you." Enjoyed what? Surely you and piano playing, emotionally distant hero are not having that sort of relationship? But come to think of it there was that time in the Austrian ski resort where you were lolling on the same bed and looking very happy about it. (There's a picture of that scene behind the cut)

It's always a bad sign when the subtitled English is different from the English characters are saying.

But the show does have some lovely scenery and the music is quite gorgeous. Lots of classical music and soulful piano playing. And staring. And Daniel Henney

Oh. Wow. I may have to look further than the brilliant MadTV spoof of korean dramas and investigate this man further. :D

There's a great picspam of a film of his here: http://winter-baby.livejournal.com/208655.html (Just in case you didn't see the link below).

Kdramas are often everything people accuse them of being and a tad too obsessed with stepsibling love but also you get people like Daniel Henney. He's Korean American and it is an utter travesty that he hasn't been in films here.

Ok, that picspam was HILARIOUS. I am ALL about Daniel Henney now! :D

Isn't it the funniest! So very clever.

And in the space of three days I have gone from not knowing who on earth he is to becoming completely fixated. And he's even more attractive in motion. Talk about winning the genetic lottery.

I'm not even going to tell you how many times I have rewatched Seducing Mr Perfect in the last week. It's like a disease!!!

I have this urge to go around shaking people and saying 'why did no one mention Daniel Henney before now?'

Have you seen My Name Is Kim Sam Soon? He's in that one too... as the nicest secondary male lead ever. Again. It's not quite as good in the Daniel-wearing-suits department, though.

I haven't yet but it just moved up my list very fast. Spring Waltz is pretty good in the Daniel suit wearing thing. They also have shots of him in the shower and jogging, if you like, um, enjoy that sort of thing.

Hi. :D Wandered over here from [livejournal.com profile] dorama_chat!

I'm not the hugest fan of Daniel Henney's acting at times, but he is without a doubt a VERY good looking man. And the fact that he speaks English is a huge plus. So if any of us ever meet him, we can talk to him without a translator. ;) (and Sam Soon is a great drama for any Daniel Henney fan~)

And about bad subs, I totally know what you mean. I bought the Full House boxset and the subs are pretty horrible. Thankfully I remember most of what's being said from the first time I saw the series, but it still gets frusterating.

You know, I am a bit ashamed to say that I don't really notice the acting as it is rather obscured by the looks. He doesn't have the most amazing range, but he does comedy very well.

It annoys me that the subtitles on the professional ones are so much worse than the fansubbed ones. And you can never tell what you're getting, though usually the back of the box is a good indication, though that doesn't help on ebay.

the acting as it is rather obscured by the looks.

That's totally understandable, lol. I'm a total sucker for Joo Ji Hoon and he could probably just stand in the center of a set with a smile on his face for ten episodes straight and I'd say, "Wow he's great!" hahaha~

As for the subs, the only way I can guarantee that we'll most definitely be satisfied every time is if...we just learn the language so we won't need the damn subs! Let's crack open those books haha. *_*
