SB Spotlight: My 2012 Love Letter to Song Joong-ki

Triple: Side character dude that was essentially a minor role, but because of sheer ability and cuteness on Song’s part, was probably made more prominent. But still, minor character in an unsuccessful drama.Will It Snow For Christmas?: Older brother of main female lead. Who dies in about five seconds flat.Heart Paws 2: Dude with dog.OBGYN: Peripherally involved doctor on a large ensemble cast of an unsuccessful drama. Song trudged along with side roles and cameos in 2010, but it wasn’t until Sungkyunkwan Scandal that he got the boost in popularity he needed. This drama generally did well with audiences at home and abroad, thanks to a timely theme (crossdressing girls), a rabid fanbase (DBSK/JYJ fans), and a lot of eye candy. So ultimately, it was less Song’s doing and more a byproduct of him being in the right production at the right time.

The upside was that this role was probably what landed Song a spot on Running Man, a venture that turned a lot of its cast members into overnight successes (Gary, Song Ji-hyo, Gwang-soo). Song was good in front of the camera (his long time stint as host on Music Bank probably helped) and he was naturally well-loved for his participation on Running Man. Song, however, turned out to be the first permanent cast member to leave the show, citing the need to focus on acting.

As much as I liked Song Joong-ki on Running Man, I felt his talents were rather wasted. This seems like a questionable thing to complain abouthaving a proper channel to see an actor I liked on a consistent week-to-week basisbut I felt that Song Joong-ki’s career was an unfortunate mix of not landing the right roles early on, needing to bolster popularity through variety, and then finally picking up career momentum after a lot, lot, lot of hustling.
