Joo Won (주원) is a Korean actor who has mostly worked in TV dramas (Cantabile Tomorrow, Good Doctor, 7th Grade Civil Servant, Bridal Mask, Ojakgyo Family, and King of Baking, Kim Takgu) though he has made some films, too. Those films include S.I.U, Don’t Click, Catch Me (Steal My Heart) and Fashion King.
Joo Won has many fans in his own right, but some also like him because they see a resemblance between him and slightly older actor Kang Dong-won (강동원), who is one of my faves, BTW.
(I must confess, I spent a bit too much time today looking for photos of the two of them to illustrate this point. Don’t even ask me how much time. It’s embarrassing.)
Joo Won is the male lead in the film Catch Me (Steal My Heart), which I saw recently at a free screening presented by Ciné-Asie in Montreal.
If you join Cine-Asie’s Monthly Asian Film Screening Facebook page, you’ll hear about the next screening. (Sadly, screenings are not quite monthly these days, but the organization does plan to return to that frequency.) The next film will probably be The Face Reader, starring Song Kang-ho, in August.
