Manzzang, A Multitalented K-Actor : Oh Man Seok

Oh Man Seok (OMS) may not have an eye-candy look but he is definitely one of the multitalented Korean Actors. Manzzang is his nickname which  means Man The Best. If I am not mistaken, it was given to him because if his great talents.

Although he has been popular in Korea as a stage actor and best known in musical,  but just like other non korean K-Drama lovers, I only knew about him after watching The Vineyard Man. I like Taek Gi’s character (the character that OMS played in this drama) so much that I started to find information about OMS back then. It led me to know the other talents  of this actor and made me admire him  more. However, I have not seen his other dramas though. It is because , The King and I and Hyena, his drama after The Vineyard Man, are not the typical drama that I like. But some time in the future I probably will give Hyena a go.

I remember once there was a channel in Youtube named Mirager, whose owner apparently a fans of OMS that had so many of his videos when doing stage performances such as The King and The Clown and Hedwig but unfortunately the channel had “gone” last year.

Finding information about OMS also introduce me a bit with theatrical world, a world that I did not know at all before. Here in this section I would like to share some of his songs from his musical “Finding Kim Jong Wook”. Although I do not know what this musical is about and neither do the meaning of the songs but I like the music. As they were sung in unplugged version, Oh Man Seok’s great vocal can be heard very clearly. Thanks to Dahee Fanel, an OMS’ fan at Soompi who shared these to us. Enjoy!

  • Finding Kim Jong Wook: Good Person – Oh Man Seok
  • Finding Kim Jong Wook: Love Theme 1-Oh Man Seok (Duet)
  • Finding Kim Jong Wook: Love Theme 2-Oh Man Seok (Duet)
  • My favorite are the first two tracks.

    and…One more audio file of him performing Wig In A Box but the quality of the sound are low, it was probably recorded by a viewer of the show. I love the song in overall, except for the screaming part that I think it’s a bit noisy …Check it out if you like…

    I captured Ji Hyun’s scenes for this MV. She is such a lovely girl who turned from a material city girl at first into a simple and nice country girl because of her love to Taek Gi, The Vineyard Man. I have no idea what the song is about but the title “Good Lady” looks like fit for Ji Hyun’s Character

Ji-Hyun is a striving young clothing designer, who hopes to have her own label one day. Her plans are put on hold when she reluctantly takes up a tempting offer from her granduncle. She had to work one year in her granduncle’s vineyard in order to inherit it. In the vineyard, the challenge of adjusting to country life is made more difficult when she has to learn how to grow grapes under the supervision of the seemingly uncouth and unsympathetic man in charge of the vineyard, Jang Taek-Gi (Oh Man Suk). Amidst conflicts and trials, Ji-Hyun and Taek-Gi learned to care for each other. As time goes by, Ji Hyun finds herself falling in love with the vineyard and the man in it. Through the mundane process of grape farming and the personal relationship of Ji-Hyun and Taek-gi, this story portrays how beauty and kindness can be found in everything and everyone when one looks beyond the surface.
