    i just read online in one of your interviews in June that you were embarrassed coz of the low ratings of Lie to Me….please jebal don’t bother with that….kyeok jong massae yo…that’s not your fault if the plot was unpredictable as long as your performance along with my other fave actress yoon eun hye was excellent we your fans will support you all the way! life is too short to let your life be ruined with just one drama series! matter of fact i liked you in that drama & as long as you’re in a drama who cares if the ratings are low or high—i’m sure there’s many people or fans on this board alone who as i can see from their postings here that you’re much loved! move on & concentrate on another project…you’re an awesome & versatile actor…not very many actors could do good in both comedy & drama & you’re one who could do excellent in any roles you play or played! look forward to seeing you in another drama soon, perhaps team up again with either han hye jin of the famous be strong geum soon or with yoon eun hye ok?
    good luck in all you do oppa! just cheer up & nothing to be embarrassed about, it’s the fault of the writers of Lie to Me that it got negative reviews but i’m one of those who appreciate the drama, especially you & yoon eun hye! fighting! 🙂

    Hello, my dear actor, Kang Ji-Hwan
    I first saw you in Exhibition of Firework and I like your clean cut character in that movie. I like so much flow of this movie and I watch it on DVD for (4) times. Since that time, I had desires to watch Korean drama that you involved and I have been watching your drama on television without interruption. I also like your drama, Be Strong Geum Soon as you’re so sweet & funny as Jae Hee. I like so much your best performances in such drama as Capital Scandal and 90 Days Falling in Love but your character in the film, Lie to Me is excellent and your action and character style make large audience to be excitement and they watch you in Lie To Me on TV series for at lease (4) times. Now you are a most influential Korean actor voted by many audience from Myanmar. I am wishing you be physically and emotionally healthy. Please don’t be depressed if you have difficulties in your life and working situation. Well, I hope to see more of your drama.

    Hi my beloved actor, Kang Ji-Hwan,
    It is now raining in our Mandalay City, in Myanmar. I yearn for an event but it is not real my life experience which is based on Korean Drama since 2007. Instead of being a drama, I feel this experience as my own. I means “90 days, Fall in Love Days”, a sad movie make me cry and cry again while I only was watching it on Television in my bedroom. At that time, as it was a rainy season, it was cloudy in the sky and rain falling on the roof of my house rhythmically like a Chinese poem. The flow of the drama was better and better and capturing my interest. As my attention was totally captured by the excellent character, Kang Ji-Hwan who played in this drama, I could not move from watching television the whole day. Because of this experience, I cannot forget this drama in my life forever.

    Dear Ji-Hwan,
    Can I call your name Ji- Hwan?
    It becomes darker and darker as it is now 7:30 Pm in Myanmar. The rain was falling heavily in this morning and stopped in 1:00Pm and there was a overflow of the rainwater surrounding our house ,however, as today is a weekday I went to my work to perform my academic tasks from 9:00 Am to 6:00 Pm. I have been busy with my students’ research project that is nearly to be completed. As they are urgent to be completed their project, I facilitated their work to be accomplished smoothly with less error. I paid much attention to their work and therefore, I’ve get so tired. Since I came back from my work, I have been watching your drama ‘Lie to Me’ on DVD as I had an idea to take recreation by your excellent drama. It is a 7th time for me to watch this drama but it doesn’t make me boredom because of the clean cut action of you. While I am writing this mail, I am watching episode 21 of Lie to Me in which both of you are very funny especially your action. It makes me not only release my tension but also feel happy and comfort with new physical and emotional strength for working in the next day. Thanks you so much for your excellent character. Fighting; Be strong Kang Ji-Hwan for another new drama.

    Hi Dear Ji Hwan,
    How is your feeling today? Today is a sunny day in Mandalay, Myanmar. The atmospheric temperature of our city is neither cold nor hot. I mean that it is a nice weather condition for the people who had to go out to do their works without tiredness. Among them, I could also do my academic tasks with better emotion. Because of being a sunny day, I had an idea to go to the departmental store in downtown of our city where I can buy DVDs after finishing our office duty. During our lunch time, four of my friends were discussing about your character in drama “Coffee House” on a lot of good points. Most of their discussed points were focused on your clean cut character, your charming facial expression, humorous, your lovely smile and your body posture and movements. Because of their good discussions on your drama, I was very interested in this drama to watch urgently it on DVD tonight. Thus, I went to downtown to buy a DVD in which you played a lead role as Lee Jin Soo. However, I’ m not very lucky to buy this DVD as there was nothing left for me to buy the DVD of Coffee House in that departmental store. The owner of this store told me that the drama, Coffee House in DVDs are the best seller ones as same as the drama, Lie to Me in DVDs. Therefore, I feel very very sorry for being an unlucky person to watch it on DVD tonight. Anyway, I decided that I will never give up getting the drama, Coffee House in DVD. I will try and try again to get it because I like your character so much.

    I am so happy when I got to found that you have a movie after Coffee House. That flick was cool. And I have been reading a lot on the Internet about you. I tried to look for you on Tweeter but I’m not sure youre the one I’m following. Anyway, I know you’ve been busy. I hope that you are healthy and more power to you. Fighting!

    Dear Ji Hwan
    Did you have a nice weekend? I had a nice weekend because I could successfully look for and buy DVD of Coffee House in Sunday morning but I could not watch it as soon as I had bought it. The reason is that I was very busy with evaluating my students’ research proposal the whole day. Then I had started to watch the drama, Coffee House since 6:00 Pm till 8:00Am today but I have not finished yet as today is a weekday and I have a chance for an hour to prepare for my breakfast before going to my work-site. I have to continue to watch it after coming back from my work. Today, we, faculty of our university have workshop on our students’ research project that will be started at 10:00Am and I will be busy with participating to discuss on presentation of their research proposals based on my academic view points. I have some questions to ask you about your character in Coffee House that made me confuse to understand. Bye Bye and I will give comment about your character in later.

    Nyein Soe Nwe Says:

    Dear Ji Hwan,
    Yesterday, I was so tired as I used my brain a lot for workshop on research project the whole day but I could watch the rest pages of drama, Coffee House immediately after coming back from my work. Although your character played in this drama is strange habits, it kept me away from tiredness. Your action in some episodes of this drama also made me really laugh and forget all of my problems for a moment. I love the roles played by you and Ham Eun Jung because both of you are very funny, kindness and support each other. I sensed both of you played in this drama love each other unconsciously but I was not clear definitely to discuss about it. On the other hand, the flow of the drama made me confuse to understand about your true love. I would like to know, you as a character role (Lee Jin Soo), do you really love someone (i.e. Kang Seung Yeon or Seo Eun Young)? And why was the drama flow changed suddenly in a later episode? End of this drama make me sorry because of your direction of falling in love with Seo Eun Young suddenly instead of Kang Seung Yeon. Here, I would like to raise a question to you as a character role ‘Lee Jin Soo’, Why didn’t you fall in love with Kang Seung Yeon. It is OK for me if you do not want to give answer to this question. I think that it’s up to the idea of the author of this drama. Nevertheless, your action in Coffee House is as much excellent as in ‘Lie to me’ and could make the audiences to be excited emotionally. You had a clean cut character in early episodes but you looked like a person awakening from unreal world to real world with courage to do everything for the loved one in later.
    As four of my friends’ comments described previously, you could play as a role ‘Lee Jin Soo’ with your clean cut character, charming facial expression, humorous, your lovely smile and your body posture and movements.
    Well, I have just finished watching this drama last night. In my opinion, the author of this drama had an idea to end up the story disappointing towards the many audiences but did a great job as what a clever author.
    Oh, it is 3:00 Am and I have to take a rest for 3 hours. I would like to stop my writing comment on Coffee House. I am going to see your another drama that I have never watched before.

    u have amazing voice, so calming for a man, but it does not mean u are sounded like a gal, it’s just, i don’t know feels “shooting” maybe.
    don’t get me wrong, i’m not a crazy fan and day dream that u would call me, letting me enjoy “shooting” sensation of ur voice (ok, now i’m giving too much informations, lol). anyway, all i wanna say about him, he has a good skill and excellent voice.

    Dear Ji Hwan,
    Are you very busy? I Think so, you are busy with your next filming. How’s everything with you? I’m very sorry for missing to leave a reply message because I was not only very busy with heavy academic tasks but also away in Napyitaw on business Last week. I got back yesterday morning and I went to my work to make a duty report and to do routine academic tasks. I had no leisure time to take a rest the whole yesterday. After I came back from my work, I went to bed and tried to sleep but I had no sound sleep at once. Therefore, I had watched your drama (The Capital Scandal) once again. Although there was a second time for me to watch this drama, it could never made me boredom. It made me feel fresh and laugh because of your funny character as Soon Woo. Simultaneously, it made me feel sadness because of your character {feeling of unhappiness as being betrayed by your beloved friend (Lee Soo Hyoon) and as being rejected by your girl friend(Na Yoo Kyaung)}. In that film, I perceive that you are very lovely and looked like a adorable and innocent man. Your fashion and nature is are quite different from nature and fashion of Na Yoo Kyaung but the differences between both of you keep the audiences’ interests to a large extent. The drama (The Capital Scandal) is really excellent. Don’t think anymore about low rating on your drama. You have a lot of audiences with loyalty and they always support you. I wish you every happiness.
