Hot Guy of the Week: Kim Ji Seok
After wrapping up Personal Taste in 2010, we haven’t seen much of this boyishly good-looking man as he enlisted into the army a mere four days after. He’s laid low on the drama radar for the earlier half of this year after being discharged, but we’re so, so glad that he’s finally back on our screens for some good lovin’.
