Jo Jung Suk Cuts from What's Up & The King 2Hearts drama

Jo Jung Suk's 180deg transformation from goofy & awkward Kim Byung Gun in What's Up to earnest adorable cute personal guard Eun Shi Kyung in The King 2Hearts has won me over. His ability to adapt to these two very different characters and made each character his own; made the viewers and me personally to root for his character. He's truly the scene stealer.

In the King 2Hearts, his brilliant chemistry with fellow actress Lee Yoon Ji has took their loveline to the moon. Even though they're the STP (Secondary True Pairing), but it's one of the most memorable STP pairing in the K-drama history.
