He really is and I’ll tell you why in a second. Remember I said there was a reason I was covering Goong? Obviously yes I’m covering it because it’s a K-Drama and that’s err what I do but there’s a realllly special reason for the timing of this! Joo Ji Hoon who many of you know as Prince Shin or maybe have seen him in films such as ‘Antique Bakery’ is finally getting discharged from the military at the end of this month!! The date floating around for his first fan meeting is November 27th and I’m soooo excited! Not because I’m about to fly to Korea and wait online like a fan girl no; but because he’s really talented and this is his 2nd chance since he was seriously close to blowing his career.
See Joo Ji Hoon was pretty wild and even now when you google pictures of him a lot of his party pics come up and he looks so wasted in pretty much all of them…it really wasnt a good look Ji Ji!. Back in 2009 he was caught in a big drug scandal and I don’t mean petty BS like G Dragon’s recent issue. I mean this involved models smuggling drugs into Korea and Joo Ji Hoon purchasing and using Ecstasy and Ketamine. He was sentenced to 6 months jail time and a year of probation. He never served those 6 months and what a perfect time to enlist in the military don’t you think? Laying low in the military wa a great PR move, but really how careless was he? I mean not only was he a popular actor at the time but he was a popular model with endorsements from the likes of Calvin Klein and Polo. I’d say he’s a very lucky guy to be given another chance and in fact he’s signed with Key East which is the entertainment firm owned by famous Hallyu star Bae Young Joon. This firm houses a collection of A listers including my very own Kim Hyun Joong. I’m sure Joo Ji Hoon has changed for the better so lets hope his comeback is a major success!
Yummy Stats: Oppa is turning 30 in May. He stands at almost 6″2. He really can’t play a teenager anymore; he’s become very manly looking so I’m excited to see what roles he’ll be casted in this time around.
