Get out your sparklers folks because we be celebrating a new set of awesome thespians this month. Time for Stone Cities July Actor and Actress of the Month. Cheers!
Jung Il Woo
Because: How many ways do I love Il Woo? Endless! He is not just the heartthrob that made me literally stop watching Return of Iljimae because of how attractive he is—he won me over with adorable bromance, great acting, and let’s face it… Long hair! I love that he can be comedic, but at the same time very brooding and emotional. He is still growing and perfecting his craft, but I am very excited to see how he is going to kill it in Night Watchman’s Journal. Kudos Jung Il Woo, I really will miss you when you go off to the military…
Also Seen In: The Return of Iljimae, Take Care of the Agassi, 49 Days, Flower Boy Ramyun Shop, The Moon that Embraces the Sun, and Golden Rainbow
Gong Hyo Jin
Because: Master’s Sun. Have you seen Gong Hyo Jin in Master’s Sun? No? Then you are missing out. She nailed the role of a ghost seeing insomniac with grabby hands syndrome to perfection. I nominated Hyo Jin as my first ever Actress of the Month and I have no shame in doing so again less than a year later. Seriously, she is gold and I love her. And I cannot wait to see how she takes on the role of a psychologist falling in love with a man with OCD in the upcoming drama It’s Okay, That’s Love (hint- pretty sure she will do great).
Also Seen In: Master’s Sun, The Greatest Love, Pasta, Biscuit Teacher Star Candy, Thank You, Boomerang Family (film), Crush and Blush (film), Love Family (film)
