I’m in awe of this man at the moment. Oh Hae Young Again opened the door for me to look into him deeper. And what an awesome time to know who Eric is! This age is truly his time to shine even brighter. So far, this guy is exceeding my expectations.
Personally, I didn’t find him attractive, partly because of the characters he had portrayed in his previous K-drama. But as I continue to be succumbed by Eric’s charm as he plays Park Do Kyung, the character of what he considers his life’s work, I found beauty in his inner radiance. I had to do my own research, watch videos and read more articles that I could possibly find. My opinions here are nothing compared to long time fans of Eric Mun and SHINWA. I’m keeping up with almost 18 years of information! Thank you to Eric’s avid and lovable fans for their generosity in sharing support and love for him. It is amazing to witness.
Beyond the physical hotness, the more I get to know Eric, the more he earns my respect and love. He shared his own ideas on set that made scenes with Seo Hyun Jin extraordinary. He is a true gentleman with her, that is why Seo Hyun Jin was able to film with ease. His qualities as a leader is exceptional. For Eric to lead an idol group for a long time, helping them transition and mature in time, speaks of loyalty and utter commitment. When other Kpop idol bands easily comes and go, Shinwa stays! As a leader, he allows his members to outshine him that clearly shows me his humility. He stays quietly on the side, simply observing things unfold in front of him and only speaks up when necessary. That is so endearing! These are just few of the things that made him more beautiful in my eyes.
I have a very soft spot for those with an eccentric persona. When I discovered how quirky Eric is, I begun to understand why I’m interested! Haha. It is rare for a good-looking man to disregard his image for the sake of fun. He clearly knows how to laugh at himself. I love his sense of humour, he is naturally funny without trying so hard. I love how witty and firm Eric is during interviews. His words have integrity, he does not mince words which reflects his sincerity.
I am totally in love with his eyes! I blame those since Episode 4! And the smile he had in that scene too! You know that kind of smile that is waiting to come out?! It was too cute for words. This scene is among my favourite from him.
And take a deeper look at this..
Did he suddenly see his future in an instant?? What could have been his motivation to have such lovely sparkling eyes? He really looks like the happiest and most content groom standing in front of his wife. What an incredible scene from him! I can stare at it forever.
When I read about the article featuring the cinematographer of Oh Hae Young Again, it confirmed why Eric is visually attractive in this drama. Personally, Eric has a lovely side profile. When I looked at my previous screen caps, this side was what I consistently have a shot of! Thanks to Director Han, it was easier to find Eric’s best angle. And thanks to him as well, it was challenging to select which one to post. Aigoo! But I had fun nonetheless.
Please be ready for photo dump here. Most of these screen caps are not posted on my articles but I can’t seem to delete it. It is lovely to put on trash. Take a gander!
Have you ever seen a male lead smiling happily during kiss scenes? It is rare. His scenes with Seo Hyun Jin just gives Eric a different glow. If the show wanted us to realise how love is a beautifier, it succeeded. And just to end this post on a happy note, I think I’ll be content seeing him smile and hearing his boisterous laughter again for 18 episodes and more.
