Lin Geng Xin needs to be in more high profile magazine spreads. He is really (really really) phenomenal in print material. Whereas his acting is raw and rough around the edges still, in print he can unleash his potency in stills that capture his both big boy frame and combination little kid charm with manly simmer. It’s astonishing how he makes drinking a freaking Coke look so ridiculously sexy and gorgeous above. I’m still watching Drama Go Go Go (two episodes a weekend is not enough!) and right now his character has stepped into the forefront with his adorable attempts to be both BFF and sly suitor to his noona played by Ruby Lin, mostly by bickering with her adorably (and making these puppy faces) and writing the script for the second season of the drama-within-a-drama in order to insert a character that represents himself so that he can confess to her in a roundabout way. Except his script sucks and she has to step in and clean up his mess, rendering her impression of him even more like he’s her baby brother. Talk about LOL fail, but oh so cute nonetheless. In this Elle Men photo spread which came out last year, Lin Geng Xin is anything but a puppy dog cutie, instead showing us that he may still be relatively young (he’s an ‘88er) but he’s got plenty of masculine appeal already. I absolutely LOVE this black-and-white photo spread which feels both edgy and approachable. If the rumored Bu Bu Jing Xin 2 does start filming next month (still not holding out hope) then I will be delighted to see how he interprets the character of stalwart 14th Prince in his modern incarnation. It probably will be like his character in DGGG, yes?
