PIE, along with three other K-actors (Lee Seon Kyun, Lee Jung Jin, and Jang Geun Seok), participated in a photoshoot modeling urban military gear. Beats me if it’s a metrosexual ad campaign on behalf of the Korean military establishment, or for a clothing company. Me no read Korean.
I like everything about these pictures, but it’s practically begging the viewer to do one thing and one thing only. Play a game of “one of these things is not like the others”. Thank you, Sesame Street!
Spot the outlier? If you guess Jang Geun Seok, ding ding ding, you get a treat. Man, I love all four of these guys, butbutbut, I’m kind of scratching my head here. This ad campaign, albeit looking good, strikes me as rather arbitrary. See, I get why scruffy PIE, smirky The Voice, and smoldery Lee Jung Jin, are all in it. But unless that military jacket Jang Geun Seok is wearing is secretly encrusted with sequins on the inside of it…
Jang Geun Seok is probably the least military, scruffy, and well, manly is not a word I naturally associate with him. I’ll just accept that he’s doing this to off-set his image in Mary Stayed Out All Night. Yes, now that makes sense. He’s so pretty – I especially love the incongruity of his divine features with that rich baritone voice. Hhhmm, he and The Voice need to play brothers in a project together.
These are four really busy guys. PIE is currently filming the movie Blue Salt, The Voice has the movie Petty Romance coming out, Lee Jung Jin is chasing Rain in the drama Fugitive on KBS, and I am very much looking forward to the upcoming drama Mary Stayed Out All Night with Jang Geun Seok and Moon Geun Young (with the added super bonus of Kim Jae Wook).
