After wrapping Mary Stayed Out All Night, Kim Jae Wook has jumped right back into his other day job – as frontman for the indie rock band Walrus. Seriously, his casting as Jung In as opposed to Mu Gyul must’ve amused him to no end, since he’s the real life talking walking version of Mu Gyul.
I approve of the attempt to not be type cast. Walrus is about to release the band’s first solo album, and in the meantime, Kim Jae Wook just landed in Japan this week for his scheduled fan meeting. *grumbles, cursed those lucky obasans* As cute as Absolute Mu Gyul was, that above is what a real indie band looks like. Sadly, I’m more of a pop girl, so I can only admire the authentic indie spirit from the place where I listen to “Take Care, My Bus” and happily love it.
I really can’t get over how wild and free spirited the real Kim Jae Wook is, as opposed to repressed and restrained he was when playing Jung In. It was only the undeniable and incomparable Geun-Geun chemistry that kept me firmly on the M&M ship, but in secret I was dying to do all sorts of naughty things to Jung In. See, Mae Ri can only belong to Mu Gyul, so that means I can have Jung In, right? *is happy* Let’s watch some of the latest clips and MVs for Kim Jae Wook, shall we?
