*Speechless shock* Wow, so there is a way to make the hot hot namja Kang Ji Hwan look absolutely abhorrent. Yes, it involves a padded belly, greasy stringy overly long hair, copious amounts of facial hair, and a general obliviousness that makes for good laughs not but much swooning. For the upcoming K-comedy movie Detective Cha, which reunited Kang Ji Hwan with his Hong Gil Dong leading lady Sung Yuri, he pulls double duty as an extremely unattractive detective forced to transform himself into a male supermodel in order to go undercover. To solve what type of crime, god only knows. Zoolander still remains an epic masterpiece in self-absorbed absurdity, so I hope Detective Cha brings on the same level of laughs. The first stills released show only the pre-makeover version of the titular Detective Cha. I suppose its best that I get used to this iteration first, since I’m totally expecting sexy Ji Hwan to bring it when he morphs into the male model.
And just to wash the Detective Cha version of Kang Ji Hwan from our brains, here’s the original flavor Ji Hwan. Rawr.
