Lee Dong Gun Epitomizes the Sharply Dressed Man for Brooks Brothers

Holy mother of something or another. *speechless* This degree of male gorgeousness should come with a warning sign, or probably is just plain illegal. After five long years away from the entertainment world, a combination of his time off due to the loss of his younger brother followed by two years of military service and then another year or just laying low, Lee Dong Gun is slowly making his way back to my our arms and I have to say that the wait is well worth it. The man has always been the sensitive introspective type and I always got the sense that he loved acting and singing but didn’t necessary crave the fame or find any satisfaction in it. He’s chosen as his comeback the high profile KBS time-travel romance drama Marry Him If You Dare (Mirae’s Choice), with his character being the titular “Him” while Yoon Eun Hye is the “You” who may be fated to marry him even if her future self tries to muss it up. While the drama has released stills of leading lady Yoon Eun Hye and second male lead Jung Yong Hwa, I’m still twiddling my thumbs waiting for the hotness that is Lee Dong Gun as broadcast announcer Kim Shin to drop. When it does, expect lots of screaming. And flailing. The above still is the just released endorsement pictorial of Lee Dong Gun as the latest face for Brooks Brothers in South Korea. The brand was racking their brains for someone to embody their classic refined style of dressing, which happened to coincidence with the news that Lee Dong Gun was making his comeback. So the brand approached him to model their latest Fall collection and he agreed, which is the perfect fit since his character in MHIYD will be wearing a lot of suits. Clearly he’ll be wearing Brooks Brothers in the drama, and if he looks anything close to as good as he looks in the picture above, I suggest we all watch the drama with a bucket handy to catch the drool. He’s been sorely missed in the years away and seeing any tidbit of news about him is a sight for sore eyes. He hasn’t aged a wink when I flashback to some of his classic dramas like Ruler of Your Own World, Sang Doo, Let’s Go to School, Stained Glass, etc. Except hotter, he’s only gotten hotter with age, experience, and lots of life lessons. I’m dying to see his first stills with Yoon Eun Hye.

Lee Dong Gun will also be featured in the October issue of Geek Magazine. Above is a sneak peek at his cover.

  1. waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah hotness it is!!! im with you Captain!!!! πŸ™‚

    i cannot wait for his comeback drama with eun hye! i hope the chemistry will be mind blowing!!!!

    • Oh yes I don’t watch many older dramas.But his acting stood out. I never thought he was hot so only remembered him for his screen presence.

    • Hello galore! Why you haven’t seen Lover’s in Paris??? His last drama before he exited on hiatus the kdrama land was ‘When It’s at Night’ w/ Kim Sun Ah. He’s really one hot actor in there.

  2. Miss Koala, you forgot to add Sweet 18 among the list of his dramas where his hotness was magnified!

    He can be adorably sweet in one minute and extremely sexy in another second.

    Phew. I’m so glad he is back!

  3. OMG HIS BACK! I thought he would disappear from the entertainment world completely!
    I’ve watched so much good rom-com with him in it, love his acting and I jus love him. He looks so gorgeous in these photos *.*
    Koala Unni I’m sorry but his mine! You got way too much men in your life!!

  4. Hotness hotness, I remember watching the atrocious Day and Night (w/ Kim Sun Ah) for him and HIM only. He was )U$_)@*#)@*(#+_#*@+)#(@ amazingly HOT in that drama.

  5. seeing him back is bringing me back to my early years of kdrama fangirling ^^ those LQ videos and pics we’d pass around i think through (yousendit) – this was before the days of mediafire, etc.

    so glad to see him back and i’m really rooting for this drama.

  6. Really excited for his comeback for those that are new to k-ent and have not seen any of his works yet.
    I had no clue his younger brother passed.
    Add on top of that the military service, i feel like his acting will have a have a completely new level of gravitas.

    • Just did a bit of research and read that his younger brother was murdered? That is absolutely horrible. Even if it’s been 5 years, im sure that will always be a sore subject.
      My condolences goes to his family; i hope he comes back stronger than ever.

  7. I’d never heard of him before since I only started watching k-dramas last year but DAMN! He’s hot. Whoooo! *fans self* Move over flower boys, it seems I prefer men after all. After getting all swoony over SJS, I now have another man to flair about over. Yes! Thanks Ms. Koala! πŸ™‚

    Also started watching Sweet 18 for him lol.

  9. There is a trace of sadness in his eyes – probably from all the tragedy and pain that has happened in his life so far. I am sure that angst in any drama can be portrayed by LDG just by standing still. He is that intense.

    I just wanna hug him and make him laugh ….

  10. to WITS I wanted to write a” dirty”post for MR.Hoooooootnesss LDG ,but your post make me think how shallow I would look.I wish for him and his family a good life with out sad surprises.

  11. Started watching Sweet 18 today to figure out what the hullabaloo in regards to LDG was. I GET IT aaaandd am smitten!! *__* Super excited for his show!!

  12. He is so fine. His face looks so angular now. In the photos, his face lost that plumpness. I wouldn’t have recognized him in the second shot. Just glad he’s back.

    • Yeah agree with you. He lost weight maybe πŸ™ I loved his plumpy cheeks when he smiles :(( Hope he gains some weight again πŸ™‚

  13. Sweet 18 & the infamous carefree brother in Lover in Paris….ah I luuuuvvv him.
    I used to board the ship of sweet 18…when they break up…#sigh

  14. OMG LDG in brooks brother! I am really glad that they chose him! wth another man it would not be the same!! He has an exceptional charm i dont know how he manages to that! Maybe his eyes? Or his lips? well whatever it is i am glad to know him in this world!!! LOL

  15. Sharp dressed men seem to be my kryptonite lately.
    Throw in reluctantly falling in love and I’m a goner.
    (I’m talking to you, Terry!!)

    How come all the “businessmen” in my Forture 80 company don’t look like that? Of course, none of the women dress to the nines, either. It has been a looooooong time since I wore hose and heels to work.

    Doesn’t he look like he would smell really nice?
