Looks like a jam packed schedule isn’t going to stop Kim Soo Hyun and Suzy from sneaking time out to do some glamping. Oh wait, whaddya mean this was a promotional event for some strangely named sportswear company? Sigh, here I thought my Dream High perfect OTP found an urban retreat for a date. Suzy and Kim Soo Hyun have been the spokes couple for outdoor sporting goods brand Bean Pole for the last year and they must be doing something right because the company continues to use them to market the concept of “glamorous camping” or “glamping” to a generation of young adults with disposable income in Seoul. Camping already costs a pretty penny to buy all the gear, but if one wants to glam it up, my guess is expect to shell out for style over substance even if all one really needs is a tent and a sleeping bag to really capture the bare essence of camping. Because otherwise my bedroom and bed works just fine, thank you. Suzy has been beyond busy filming Gu Family Book with Lee Seung Gi, but she not only manages to attend this event, she manages to attend looking refreshed and gorgeous as always. Ah, the perks of youth. Kim Soo Hyun is starting to ramp up promotions for his upcoming movie Covertly, Grandly where he plays the leader of a trio of North Korean crack spies going undercover in South Korea in the guise of bumbling fools or harmless idols. At this Bean Pole Urban Glamping Event, it was part fan meeting part mini-concert and looks like everyone had a lot of fun. I love how the news reports on this event always start with Suzy and Soo Hyun being the super popular Dream High couple, because frankly speaking neither have evidenced anything close to the acting or romantic chemistry with another co-star since then. What’s always so disconcerting is seeing Suzy animated and relaxed at such events but she totally turns into an expressionless totem when the cameras roll as she’s in character. Perhaps she needs pointers from her Soo Hyun oppa on how to over-act, because if she tries that, maybe she’ll reach that happy medium.
