With all the rave reviews coming out of South Korea for director Bong Joon Ho’s just-premiered first Hollywood movie Snowpiercer, I’m even more disappointed that Song Joong Ki had to pass up the chance to headline Director Bong’s next movie Sea Fog. With only three weeks (*sobs*) left before Song Joong Ki enlists at the end of August, I promised to post about him every chance I get so here’s the latest news about him. On August 8th he attended a promotional event for Samsonite luggage, being a spokesperson and all for the Red line of products. He attended alone without his other spokesperson co-star Ha Yeon Soo, who was probably busy starting filming for her upcoming Potato Star sitcom with Yeo Jin Goo. The media was gushing over how fresh-faced and dewy-eyed he looked, which is an understatement if you ask me. I know eight year olds with complexions not nearly as perfect as his. I hope attending promotional activities isn’t all he has planned for the next three weeks. In my ideal world, I hope he guest stars in a music video, films tons of CFs to be released in a steady trickle, and throw in a few glorious photo shoots for stylish magazines like GQ or Singles and then shave off that pretty mane of head and get ready to yell “sir, yes sir!” for the next few months. Word on the street is that he’s headed to the same army base where Yoo Seung Ho enlisted earlier this year. Just the thought that two of my beloved guys are going to serve in the army together and probably trade acting stories brings a big grin to my face. On a really depressing note, Kim Bum revealed in a recent interview on the set of Goddess of Fire that he’s already planning to enlist in the military in the near future. With how young Bummie is, he’s clearly taking a page from the Yoo Seung Ho playbook and getting it out of the way earlier rather than later. I love how savvy and practical my darling cutie pies all are with managing their acting careers.
You didn’t think I would let this post pass without sneaking in a picture of Yoo Seung Ho, now did you? Song Joong Ki so deserves his baby-faced reputation, he doesn’t look any older than his much younger hoobae Yoo Seung Ho. Speaking of hotties all in one place, turns out Ji Hyun Woo is also stationed at that army base. But he’ll be done early next year and out to reunite with his honey Yoo In Ah.
