If I mentioned Dr Daniel Spencer from Descendants of the Sun, I am sure you will know who I am talking about.
Jasper Cho who plays Dr Danial in Descendants of the Sun has been getting a lot of attention from fans of the drama. His charming look as well as accent caught the heart of the ladies from all over the world. The Fifth Parlour had the opportunity to do a short interview with the busy man.
Before dabbling in the drama scene, Jasper has appeared on the television before. He had participated in a singing competition, SuperstarK6 ,in 2014. Man of many talents isn’t he? He can sing, act, draw, model and the list continues. Jasper shared that singing and writing songs have always been his hobby hence he participated in the competition. If he had to choose between acting and singing, he would prefer acting because he has always been passionate about it while juggling his advertising career as an Art Director.
So are there any similarities between Dr Daniel and Jasper?
According to Jasper, “I am Canadian raised in Canada so I have got a good amount of both Korean-ness and North-American-ness in me, that is sort of similar to Dr Daniel. We both would love kimchi but also prefer a pint of beer at a pub than a glass of soju.”
Jasper also admitted that the character Dr Daniel is just too perfect, a character that would be hard to see in the real world since he is warm-hearted, charitable, supposed to be very beautiful in and out, and very wealthy yet humble.
In the drama, Dr Daniel is on close terms with Ri Ye-hwa who was played by Jeon Soo-jin. To Jasper, each and every scene is unforgettable and memorable. If he had to narrow down to a particular scenes, these two scenes would be lingering in his mind because he felt he could do better.
Firstly, it would be his first appearance in the beginning of episode 5 where he came back to Ye-hwa after a long trip. Who could forget that?! That was when everyone laid their eyes on him for the first time.
Secondly, the scene where he meet up with Song Hye-kyo who plays Doctor Kang Mo-yeon, for the first time. I am sure I am not the only one who thought there was a possibility both of them would get together.
Being popular amongst the ladies, we ask Jasper what is his favourite pick up line?
Man, listen up, you could use this in the future. Jasper would usually start off with asking for directions. “Excuse me. Do you know how to get to …” He admitted that it usually works. So ladies, the next time someone asks you for directions, do not ignore, i repeat do not ignore!

So what is next for this Green Tea Ice Cream?
Wait, Green Tea?
That was what Jasper described himself as since Green Tea Ice Cream is a mixture of Asian and Western flavours which is similar to him.
To Jasper, he will always want to pursue anything that can be an outlet to express his creative juice be it in the entertainment industry as well as an art director. Both seems different but sometimes they are very similar in the way that they both are jobs of recreating an idea in our own way to generate something better and impactful.
The Fifth Parlour would like to thank Jasper for taking time for the interview despite his busy schedule.
