Oh yeah, this Hallyu star makes the panties drop. Model-turned-actor Joo Ji-hoon set hearts beating wildly when he portrayed Crown Prince Lee Shin in the hit drama series Princess Hours/ Goong in 2006.
The six-foot-two hunk first started out as a model in 2003, strutting his hotness for brand names such as Calvin Klein, Levi’s and Reebok.
His acting debut was in Old Love but it was Princess Hours – adapted from Park So-hee’s manhwa series – that turned him into a star all across
In the drama, he plays the cold-hearted blueblood who is forced to marry a commoner. Of course, when a drama is very popular, you have filmmakers scrambling to make a second season of the show, but nothing is set in concrete yet. Also, Ji-hoon’s hectic schedule may prevent him from reprising his role.
The well-built actor then went on a strict diet for his 2007 drama The Devil. He lost 5kg by eating only chicken and exercising three times a day! Phew, what discipline! In the drama, he starred opposite popular actress Shin Min-a.
