After following Song Joong Ki‘s career since he managed to bring the cute in Triple against three incredibly hot men (Lee Jung Jae, Yoon Kye Sang, and Lee Seon Kyun), I’m always taken aback as to how high fashion his magazine shoots tends to be. I concede he looks much younger than his age, but it’s like the magazines go overboard in presenting him as an edgy hipster so that he can distance himself further from the boy-next-door image he’s gotten from his dramas.
It definitely works, because I’d totally buy into the possibility that the real Song Joong Ki is somewhere between his cute TV image and a super hip closet soul of a New Yorker living in Korea. His latest spread for W Magazine Korea continues the trend. I hope he picks a very challenging and image-buster role for his next project, and hopefully gets his long-time-coming leading man role soon.
