I liked him since Autumn Tale (Endless Love) was shown here in the Philippines. He's so cute. I liked him even is he portrayed the baddy baddy role. I wished Song Hye Kyo chose him instead of Song Seung-heon. 

I haven't watched any of his other projects. But I like him and I hope he returns to acting through a drama series. It's been a long time since he had a drama series.

I guess the latest I've heard from him is his endorsement of a clothing line together with Moon Geun Young. They're cute together. I hope they'll pair up together in a movie or a drama series.
