Choi Jin Hyuk Makes His Exit after Shaking Up Female Viewers on ′Gu Family Book′
Choi Jin Hyuk has been taking over the small screen with his brief appearance in Gu Family Book, leading viewers to suffer from a severe bout of ′Choi Jin Hyuk-itis′.
Though he only appeared in two episodes of the drama, the actor managed to leave deep impressions in the minds of his viewers, leaving them wanting more.
He towed the drama to popularity with his perfect acting, showing everything from deep love to extreme sorrow.
In the first episode, he showed his desire to become human as Gu Wol Ryong in his pure love, while in the second episode he shed tears and expressed the pain of betrayal.
"Why did you do this when I loved you so dearly?" he asked Seo Hwa (Lee Yeon Hee) as he slowly met his death and shined in his last moment.
Some viewers have even taken to forums to demand that Choi Jin Hyuk be brought back into the drama.
The actor, however, made his exit in the drama′s second episode, and handed the baton to Lee Seung Gi as Gu Wol Ryong′s baby, whom Seo Hwa left in a basket to float on the river, was found by Park Mu Sol (Um Hyo Sup) and named Choi Kang Chi.
