You know, I like Kim Nam Gil‘s moustache look because he wears it confidently. But isn’t it time to change it up? Some of my fave actors like Jung Woo Sung and Lee Jung Jae have worn a moustache at different points in their career but it doesn’t stay permanently, which is what Kim Nam Gil’s feel like. I understand why he may want to keep it. He toiled at the fringes of obscurity for so long (the dead husband in Be Strong Geum Soon with Kang Ji Hwan and Han Hye Jin, the second male lead in Goodbye Solo with Chun Jung Myung and Yoon So Yi) before breaking out as the second male lead in the historical epic Queen Seon Deok where he ending up edging out Uhm Tae Woong‘s male lead and got more screen time and won the girl’s heart by the end. That all happened after he went from clean shaven to rocking the facial hair and since then that ‘stache hasn’t budged an inch. He’s currently filming a thriller movie called Backwards Running Man with Jung Yumi which should wrap in early 2013. The latest rumor out of Naver is that he’s signed on as the male lead for a period drama that will be airing after IRIS 2 (which makes its premiere around late April). It’s called Sword and Flower and is about a military officer who sleeps with his enemy spy to gather secrets and they end up falling in love. I’m not sure if its a sageuk but sounds more like a period piece set in more recent times. The drama will be produced by the company already slated to helm Jang Ok Jung: Live in Love with Kim Tae Hee as well as The Hidden Story of Admiral Lee Soon Shin with Uhm Tae Woong. This drama sounds perfect for Kim Nam Gil so I hope he takes it so we can all look forward to his drama comeback.
