sang kim bum

anonymous asked:

Who would you cast as zuko in a avatar live action? Asian actors please

There is a man… A South Korean actor, Kim Bum [pronounced boom] (see also: Kim Sang Bum). The face, the jaw line, the hair, the body. He’s Zuko. I am in love: 

and honestly you didn’t need to clarify?? I wasn’t gonna cast Chris fucking Hemsworth, okay. lmao

Edit: I just learned that his name should be written Sangbum Kim or Bum Kim. In the Korean countries, last names are placed first. His stage name is Kim Bum, but his South Korean name would be Sangbum Kim. [if this isn’t fully correct either, send me another anon peeps]

This is going to be a long ass post so @iamncttrash made and excellent suggestion to break it down into different parts. So here is part one of the intro to Ji Hansol saga – general info. Most of this will be taken from his smrookies profile.

That concludes Part One - General Info of the Ji Hansol 101 saga. pt.2 will be up soon so stay tuned xx

It looks weak, doesn’t it? But it’s stronger than it seems. It was sifted, pressed on and carved. It was put in a kiln of 1,300 degrees. But that’s not all. Even after all of this, it still wasn’t perfect, so I have to break it in pieces. If you want to become stronger and find your true self, it is a necessary process.

[140217] jonghyun’s blue night radio w/ taeyeon (pt ii.)


  • Jonghyun introduced Taeyeon as someone that seems hard to approach if you just see her face but someone that is very friendly when you know her well enough.
  • Jonghyun: Thank you for coming out on Blue Night. Taeyeon: Oh….(laughs awkwardly) J: Why, why? T: Ah no, you just seem different from the idol Jonghyun that I know. J: Am I suitable for Blue Night? T: Ah, you are someone suitable with night time.
  • Jonghyun says he received a present from Taeyeon today, Taeyeon says it is the first time she gave someone a present like this too. Jonghyun says it’s called “bread chocolate” then Taeyeon said it’s called a cupcake (LOL) then Jonghyun said “Oh no……, I said bread chocolate…. How could I…, oh god.”
  • Jonghyun asked Taeyeon if she has heard Blue Night yet. Taeyeon says she haven’t and Jonghyun was like “Uhm, …., okay…” and Taeyeon says he sounds quite disappointed. Jonghyun then told her to grade him as a senior, 
  1. Taeyeon: But only 3 minutes have passed…
    J: Just grade me according to that 3 minutes.
    T: I think JH is suitable with Blue Night, and since Jonghyun is the type of person that likes to talk and with his unique personality, I think he matches well with here. 
    J: I haven’t had the chance to show my personality much here yet but I think since Taeyeon noona is here today, I will probably show a lot of my personality today.
