It had been two hours since TA3 had woken up, and the first thing you did was give him some water – his lips were dry and pale. You had actually written down every observation you had made of him on a notepad, every minute that passed. So far, all he had done was binged on a few fruits, and drank five glasses of water. They were very human habits – nothing out of the ordinary.
He marched across your apartment, and scanned everything you had – the holographic pictures, the drawers, even your wardrobe. Everything just seemed so interesting to him; if you were honest, you found that very adorable, it was like watching a little kid.
All you needed to figure out was how the experiment worked, what he exactly did. The only thing you were aware of was that he was a guard or some sort; a sentient. There were multiple possibilities running through your mind of what he could have been assigned to do – probably a bodyguard for a government official of some sort.

I saw an anti shaladin post while scrolling through the shance tag and got inspired. Thank you random anti!
Modern AU where:
- Lance and Shiro (or any shaladin ship you want idc, it’s just that i’m a shance shipper all the way so…) are celebrities.
- Shiro is one of the best sought out action stars and Lance is a model turned actor.
- Shiro married young (17-ish) and had a son and a daughter (at 18). He had to leave for the military (for the cash and stability?) and came back with a prosthetic arm and PTSD, his wife couldn’t handle it and she left him.
- So Shiro had to work his ass off to provide for his children, that meant juggling three jobs and working overtime to keep his children happy and comfortable.
- He was discovered by a talent manager while busting tables at a restaurant and he was immediately casted for a car commercial.
- His success started there, and after a successful franchise, Shiro was now an in demand actor.
- Lance, on the other hand, was born in the world of modelling. His mother was a former supermodel and was now his sister’s manager, his father was once the face of Calvin Klein, and his other siblings were frequently booked for modelling high end kid brands. So it was only natural that he went to modelling too.
- But it wasn’t always smooth sailing for Lance. He had to look for for the modelling jobs and not rely on his parents’ and siblings’ assistance. He encountered countless ‘no’s’ and ‘we’ll call you’, until he was offered an acting job for an indie film. And that’s the start of Lance’s career.
- They were casted in the same movie and Lance fell in love at first sight. He saw Shiro carrying his son and was smiling fondly at his daughter while she walked ahead with a giant dog beside her.
- Shiro was wary of his feelings towards lance because he seemed to good to be true. He was amazing with his children, he didn’t expect him to be this macho guy all the time, his smile lights up his face when he talks about his family, and Shiro seemed to open up to him quite easily, which scared him shitless. He didn’t want to chase Lance away with his dark past but yet he stayed and smiled that smile that chased the shadows away.
- When they came out in public, the reactions were quite varied. Some supported them and others did not, and both parties were not ashamed to show their opinions about their relationship.
I bet everyone has had their newsfeed filled with the news that the ultimate SWAG Couple (Lee Sung Kyung and Nam Joo Hyuk) from hit drama Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo are together in real life! <3
The two have been close friends since their modeling days and both entered acting in 2014. They’re a well-known match for ad campaigns so they’ve done a lot of work together before they made Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo. Let’s check out why they’re model-turned-actors are giving us #CoupleLookGoals!
AWWWWWW <3 <3 my kdrama heart is bursting right now! As we’ve learned from these two since 2014, perfect couple looks depend on complimenting.

Congratulations Lee Sung Kyung and Nam Joo Hyuk on your relationship! <3 <3
From the runways to our TV screens, these heartthrobs went from fashion kings to drama sensations. They’re tall, young, chic, and widely famous – fashion models in Korea are a whole different league of their own. They’re a breed of superstars dominating the magazines and designer shows, but some of them take their career to new heights and go from projecting for the cameras to acting on screen.…
“I was not even thinking about acting,” says the model turned actor, Keith Powers in response to a question about his initial interest in the craft.
You may have received your formal introduction to Powers in the wildly successful 2015 biopic, Straight Outta Compton, in which he played Dr. Dre’s younger brother Tyree Clayton, or as Ronnie DeVoe in the 2017 miniseries, The New Edition Story. Easily becoming Hollywood’s new ‘IT’ guy, thanks in no small part to an impressive line-up of film and TV roles, in his current show, the Bella Thorne boasting Famous in Love—which comes from I. Marlene King, executive producer/co-showrunner of that other not-so-obscure teen series, Pretty Little Liars—he plays young actor and in-house bad boy, Jordan Wilder.
Eager to hear about the life of a star on the rise, we grabbed five with Keith to learn more about the journey to success.
So first off, how did you get into acting?
I got into acting simply through being signed as a model; it gave me the necessary tools to make that step. I remember, I was not even thinking about acting.I had this agent who would always ask me, “what do you want to do? What’s your end gain?” I’m like’ I really don’t know’, but I always thought TV personality would be interesting. I liked seeing hosts and stuff like that.
She recommended me to an agency for commercial talent and I got signed. The agency then happened to become theatrical, so I signed to the theatrical department and took a step back to think if I’m really going to do this, I have to study. I read a few books, I went from class to class and after I booked my first film, House Party: Tonight’s the Night, I literally fell in love. I caught the bug and it was over.
Let’s talk Famous in Love, what attracted you to the role of Jordan?
What I liked about Jordan was that they had already told us, kind of early on, that he would be dealing with a lot as a character. So I felt like if I’m going to be on the show – that has the potential to be on for years – I want to be a complex character; I want to be able to show my talent and range in a character.
And did you find it easy to relate?
I relate to his desires in the sense that when he wants something and tries to make something happen, something bad always pops up. No matter how good he’s doing, something will happen but he always finds a way to get it done. That makes him so much more of a human and I can relate to that. We all make mistakes, or something will happen, and we have to bounce back from it.
You’ve been privy to some super varied roles, from Straight Outta Compton to The New Edition Story and Famous in Love.
Every role is so different and it’s all about research. I didn’t know much about Tyree. Nobody did; it was a dope character to introduce to the world. That was different than playing Ronnie DeVoe in New Edition because people know who Ronnie DeVoe is. You’re not introducing somebody; you have to amplify that character on screen for people to fall back in love with that person. I had to really ask Dr. Dre what was his brother like. I had to bring the little brother to the screen so that people could feel that and when he passed it really hurt. For New Edition so much went into preparing for that; from dance rehearsals to coaching.
Going into Jordan, I felt so free. The preparation was more fun in the sense that I get to create the character for everyone else. I get to come up with what I want him to be in my head, given the guidelines from the writers.
So your roles have undoubtedly led you to the Man Crush Monday title. Is that a bit weird?
Haha, I think that when you’re put in a position like that it’s easy to get big headed and really just think about yourself, to be like, ‘I’m hot and I love everything that I do,’ but for me, I’ve tried to appreciate the fact that when women appreciate my acting, it means something. I’ve always believed that women are the tastemakers for everything. They devote their time and emotion into everything they like. So the fact that I can be a Man Crush Monday – and then a woman tells me she really loved my work in something – it’s a big deal of responsibility. With the position I’m in, I want to lead by example.
Who are your acting influences?
I have so many. I would honestly have to say, of course, Denzel Washington, Will Smith, Jamie Foxx. Then there’s Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep…I have so many influences. I look up to and identify with the people who made me fall in love.
You’ve mentioned your modelling. How does being in front of the camera compare to walking the runway?
You just have to sell to the audience. A camera is right on you so the audience can always depict when you’re not being truthful. Acting lives in truth, whereas being on the runway, there’s more emotion and fierceness.
Cool. So what’s next for Keith Powers?
I feel like I’m still so much on the come up and I still have so far to go. What’s next? I don’t even know. I want to be doing a bunch of movies. I have a movie coming out called Reality High on Netflix this summer. I’m on a show called Tales; a rap series by Gotti on BET. So I have some little things dropping but there’s so much I want to do. I want to be in different movies and play different characters and at the same time, I want to be on your TV every week with Famous in Love. I just want people to fall in love with my characters and really grow with them.

PART 3 or “some of my favorite "models-turned-actors”; actors, whose acting skills development really positively surprise me; people whose supporting roles were way more interesting than the mains, which allowed me to see the end of some overrated, filled epic wall kisses, fluffy jumpers, too many crying scenes and hugs committed by main couple, dramas & actors for whom I can watch everything “ - YOUNG VERSION (it just happened this way, no ulterior motives, my favorite actors are all-age ranged ^^)
