Time for another underrated actor for this week’s Magazine Monday! Meet Go Kyung-pyo, the actor you’ve probably seen in either Saturday Night Live Korea (though he’s since left the show) or in a few heartwarming dramas over the years. You might be surprised to know that the actor initially wanted to become a comedian, figuring that acting would be a good route for that goal. Also, I saw him in a recent Happy Together episode and he’s much more reserved (and maybe a bit of a bad boy) than those goofy but lovable roles might have us believe.
Just in time for the World Cup, this week’s Magazine Monday features the man with two hearts, better known as Park Ji-sung. Even if you don’t follow soccer, you’ve likely heard of the soccer sensation’s name at least once, thanks to that 2002 World Cup appearance. The athlete recently retired in May 2014 and announced his upcoming marriage to announcer Kim Min-ji as well. So while we bid goodbye to one of the greatest soccer players of his generation, we can treasure his charm, wit, and smile in these photos.
Sometimes even your favorite celebs appear in odd-looking photos that don’t even look like the actors themselves. Such is the case for actor Jin Yi-han, who I love, in this week’s Magazine Monday. It’s neither the best nor worst out there this season either, but I’ll forgive the overall harshness of these photos because of that megawatt smile of yours. I still love you, Tal Tal.
Time for something fun! Introducing Magazine Monday, a new blog post series whereby I’ll share fun (and sometimes wacky) magazine shoots of some favorite Korean celebrities. Because we all love pretty pictures and the pretty, right? First up is actor Ji Chang-wook, who recently wrapped up historical drama Empress Ki this past April.
