WHY IS HE MY MCM?
Well for starters he's an amazing actor! His experience shows that. I think he is super adorable in Goblin which is still airing but his character is so cute and charming! He has great chemistry with whoever he works with from what I've seen so far. I just finished watching him in "Bubblegum" which was an okay drama. It was slow paced but I finished it. I liked the chemistry. The first drama I saw him in was "Wild Romance" and wanted more of him and then watched "My Girl" since it's a classic I had to watch it and thought it was great! So far, his Grim Reaper character is definitely my favorite role of his. I just love how cute he is. Also he is so great at expressing his emotions and so talented. Dong Wook is tall, handsome and cute. Also I prefer no facial hair, I know some people like it on him but I prefer the shave. He looks so cute when he is baby-faced. Plus he looks really thuggish with the scruff. Just my opinion. But he's a total hottie!!!
Dong Wook SPAM! <3
My MCM this week is dedicated to the oh so handsome Grim Reaper from Goblin!
There you have it! My first MCM is complete! Have you watched Nam Joo Hyuk in any dramas?
