I don’t thinks it’s possible for Jang Geun Seok to pick a fuglier look than what he rocked for the You’re My Pet VIP movie premiere. He even get bonus ugly points for how badly he managed to clash with co-star Kim Ha Neul, who will be winning no fashion awards herself. For two very good looking people, they sure go out of their way to not be attractive. Granted Seok has a reputation was wearing very……unique outfits to events, so I can’t say I’m surprised. Kim Ha Neul is also hit or miss with her fashion sense, and that green short dress was an unequivocal miss with me, especially factoring in the messy hair and too bright lipstick.
Apparently this movie is premiering under some controversy, as the Korean Men’s Association has officially called for a boycott because they take offense to the story concept of a woman keeping a man as a pet. Setting aside this being adapted from mangas (which have way weirder stuff than this), it’s funny to have men in a still predominately male-run society like Korea take offense to a make believe rom-com turning the tables for once. This movie was intended to appeal to the ladies, who probably don’t give a rats behind about the so-called boycott and will run to the theaters to pretend they too can have Jang Geun Seok for a pet.
I’m always stunned by how random and off-the-cuff Seok can be in real life, but then onscreen when he is in character, he’s just on fire and owns it. I’m also curious where in the world Seol went to find that hideous suit. It’s seriously so wrong EVERYWHERE I don’t even know where to start critiquing it. It hurts my eyes to keep staring at it.
Kim Ha Neul must be like “OMG, what the hell have I gotten myself involved with?” It’s a little too late for buyer’s remorse, sweetie. But from all accounts, it’s looks like you had a fun time making the movie.
Of course celebrity friends of the leads or the director showed up, but I’m too lazy to dig for pictures. I did run across my Hyukkie at this premiere, and it’s just funny to imagine him sitting there watching the movie. I dunno, seems totally not his thing.
Yoo Seung Ho also showed up, having just finished his drama last month, and his thriller movie Blind with Kim Ha Neul was a success at the box office over the Summer. He looks so damn young, just the reminder I needed to remember his age and cease any propensity to ogle him. I also love the picture of him staring at the rip in his jeans, totally like he didn’t realize his pants had a hole in it until he stepped on that podium. LOL, he’s sooooo cute. You’re My Pet premieres this weekend in Korea.
