Dayum boy, you are getting finer by the day. Wu Zun graced the pages of May’s Esquire HK magazine, and I’m not even going to bother translating the article, because my boy Zun isn’t exactly known for his, uh, deep thoughts. What he is known for (to-die-for cheekbones, patrician features, and the ability to be the prettiest man in any room), he appears to have improved on. How that can be done, I frankly have no clue. All I know is I almost went cross-eyed for a moment looking at these pictures. It was all little too much sensory overload.
If you had asked me which TW-actor of the last decade would be best suited to star in period projects, whether dramas or movies, I would have put Wu Zun near dead last. Being such a wooden actor, I couldn’t fathom how he’d pull off the gravitas to do wuxia or period thrillers. And then he went and banged out three period movies in a row, and is now signed up for a fourth one. He’s not afraid of challenges, that’s for sure. After watching the long trailer for My Kingdom, I’m totally looking forward to watching Wu Zun in it.
