Actor Spotlight: Lee Yi Kyung From “Go Go Waikiki”

Because I love this guy!

I’m talking about Lee Yi Kyung, currently providing the desperately needed comic relief in the kdrama days of our lives.

Currently in: Go Go Waikiki

He plays struggling actor Lee Joon Ki on Go Go Waikiki, on which he pulls absolutely no punches. And yes, he’s the greatest character on the show. As a thesp, he’s willing to go to exorbitant lengths to land a role, however minor. (Though there are no small parts, because…well, you know.)

At any rate, Lee Yi Kyung seems to finally be coming into his own with this particular role. It’s like he’s had this crazy comedic talent bubbling up inside him that never got the chance to blow until now.

He was in Go Back Couple.

That wig! The show was a preview of a comedic acting force to be reckoned with!

He was in Descendants Of The Sun.

He played that construction worker on Descendants Of The Sun. Remember when Song Joong Ki’s Yoo Shi Jin rescued him?

He was in You’re All Surrounded.

Lee Yi Kyung appeared in a recurring role on You’re All Surrounded, which starred Lee Seung Gi. (Jjang jjang man! You with me?!)

He was in My Love From Another Star.

I don’t remember him in this. If you didn’t blink the entire series, you probably saw him. I don’t think I ever finished the show.

He was in School 2013.

Alongside fresh-faced Kim Woo Bin and Lee Jong Suk on School 2013. You know, those no-name actors.

This Week’s Crush: Jang Ki Yong

There’s a new heartbreaker in town.

Because there’s just too many shows to watch right now, but now you’ve got a very tall and pretty reason to zoom in on this one.

Jang Ki Yong (장기용)

Age: 25

Height: 6’1″

Current role: Jung Nam Gil on Go Back Couple.

The 411: obviously broad-shouldered, cut from the devilishly handsome-and-clean-cut variety. (At least, so far as his character is capable of. Damn, he’s well cast.)

And yes, his character catches falling leading ladies.

The above scene was just as ridic as you’re imagining it to be right now. Nay, more so.

Previous credits: The Liar And His Lover, Beautiful Mind, My Love Eun Dong, Seonam Girls’ High School Investigators, It’s Okay, That’s Love (how the heck did I miss him in that?).

Oh yeah, this is what he looks like in uniform.

You’re welcome, my fellow kdrama lovers.

Best Kdrama Faces-Of-The-Week: Week Ending March 4, 2017

Actors, at best, convey emotion without uttering a single word. In fact, a single glance alone can speak volumes.

Here are a few highlights from this week.
