Who is he, anybody knows? I mean, what drama did he acted in? Wonder if he'd be Baek Mir's rival.........

If he is the actor who acted as the older brother in "Can you hear my heart?", then that will be nice. I like him in that drama. The photo sorts of look like him.

I just cant wait for the whole drama to be completed and aired...cant wait to see Hyun Joong on small screen again. It seems ages.... I am sure he will do superbly well considering the way he has improved in his singing and performances on stage. All the best.
