Song Seung Heon Posts Picture of Him with Taiwanese Supermodel Lin Chi Ling

It’s not every day that two generally acknowledged terrible actors meet and post a cute picture together and lead me to think they might actually work well onscreen in some frothy rom-com capacity. Song Seung Heon, who has been fanservicing the heck out of his social media networks all during the filming of When a Man Loves (which is how I’m actually aware of what is happening in that drama despite not continuing to watch it) recently posted a picture of him with Taiwanese supermodel and aspiring actress Lin Chi Ling. I still can’t believe she’s 37 and still on top of her game. As a woman I am proud of her accomplishments in an industry that is all about youth and looks. She might be aging but she’s still rocking the “it” factor. Lin Chi Ling was in Korea last week and was at MBC studios where she snapped that picture with Song Seung Heon. It led to rumors she might be making a cameo appearance (not true), and further led to calls for these two to work together. That might happen, Song Seung Heon has been itching to expand his fanbase outside of Korea beyond his loyal Japanese obasan fans and China is a prime target for his brand of chiseled woodenness. Lin Chi Ling also has a track record of working with non-Chinese actors, most infamously starring in the J-dorama Tsuki no Koibito (Moon Lovers) with Japan’s top idol actor Kimura Takuya. Age-wise and looks-wise she and Song Seung Heon look fantastic together. And truth be told, Shin Se Kyung is proving herself to be such a bad actress that I might even give Lin Chi Ling the edge against her. At least Lin Chi Ling tries and looks alive, though she doesn’t have a clue which emotion to pull up when nuance is called for and her baby-voice is like nails-on-chalkboard for me. It’s always cool when famous people meet each other and I’m sure there is always some degree of awe involved much like when we peons meet stars in person. Lin Chi Ling has really earned her A-list model status by a quick run-down of all the super stars she’s worked with around Asia.

I can’t say that Lin Chi Ling and KimuTaku didn’t have chemistry. They did and looked great together. She just couldn’t act her way out of a paper bag AND her character was genuinely dreadful.

I had major major issues with John Woo‘s Red Cliff (I and II) acting, directing, and script. So Lin Chi Ling didn’t singlehandedly ruin the movie for me, but she was definitely a sore thumb in that enterprise, especially acting opposite Tony Leung. I mean, c’mon!

      • Oh. my. god.

        I need bleach to scrub that image out of my head. And I think his fangirls would need to be intubated.

      • She is actually a smart funny lady. I only mildly loathe her bc she keeps getting prime parts in what could be epic projects and then royally ruining it. As a model she’s stunning and Da Bomb.

  1. Oooh! I like them together.
    I am watching WAML and THT is actually doing well…mostly…

    I watched that show with KT. EVERYONE should watch it, too.
    The begining was bad, and then it got good, and then
    she was bah-yad and then she went
    ✻POOF✻ and disappeared back to her land of buggy puddles.
    Even though they were in love.

    • It would have made more sense if she got ran over by a car and thus written out of the show compared to how they did write her off the show. That dorama is so weird it still baffles me. o__O

  2. I love SSH. That man knows his limits, never stretches himself (other than on the pull up bar to show off his ample assets), respects his viewers, knows what we love to see and delivers on cue all the time. Occasionally, there’s even chemistry with his female leads (but that’s a bonus not to be expected all the time). Not in WAML though. Chinless is an absolute killjoy.

  3. Pretty people with very questionable acting skills. 🙂

    I’m really surprise with Shin Se Kyung’s acting, she’s gone downhill. I guess I just have this notion that since she was a child actress, somehow she’d be at the least decent and really outstanding at most, but she’s not.

  4. She’s dreadful and with the latest turn of events in WAML, even SSH’s awesome abs can’t make me suffer another episode! Urggh! I think I’ll marathon on Gaksital this weekend instead.

  5. Lin Chi Ling was bad in the acting department, especially in Tsuki no Koibito but she was so damn sexy when she model with the furniture in that drama! That explains why KimuTaku character is nuts.. it’s not love, it’s lust!

    • They really did a good job showing him in lust, and I bought it, then, they tried to go all “true love” and stuff.
      It just didn’t work.

  6. Haha. Her picture with Tony Leung is so funny. He looks all awkward & uncomfortable. It’s like how do get the least amount of skin contact with this lady.

  7. I saw a photo shoot with SSH and Ha Ji Won and that famous model Jang Joon. Surprisingly, SSH and Ha Ji Won seem to have so much chemistry. I would like to see them in a rom-com.

  8. Seung Heon has a lot of Haters..which to me makes him a great actor. Loved the drama when a man loves. I prefer to see a tough guy image or maybe a villain (bad guy). Hope to see upcoming films or drama with Seung Heon.

    • wow! SSH’s does have a lot of haters. thank you haters. you make him more tough and i am a huge fan of him. you can hate all you want. ungrateful bitches..
