Since news broke of recent drama co-stars Kim Bum and Moon Geun Young diving into a real life relationship and off on an European vacation, there seems to be an APB (or AKB All Koala Bulletin) put out on them. Dispatch delivered the first very grainy pictures of two people that purported to be GeunBum, but one was of their backside and the other from very far away. Despite their agencies confirming the relationship, a picture is worth 1000 words and today comes the first front and center picture of the fresh in love young couple in Vienna, Austria. I love this picture for everything it says. Both Moon Geun Young and Kim Bum look pretty awful vis-a-vis their usual styled for media event appearances, but it screams how normal they are in real life. They are wearing matching camo-colored coats with similar comfy sneakers, and the picture shows them checking something on a tablet like tourists looking for their next destination. If it wasn’t famous Korean actors Moon Geun Young and Kim Bum, they would be any other tourist couple spending time together. Some folks have mentioned an interest in checking out Goddess of Fire for their chemistry, but trust me when I say its 32-episodes of the worst drama ever. But I found an awesome MV of all the Tae Do-Jung Yi scenes, complete with shippy dialogue galore. When watching it, it took me awhile to place the song used to score the MV, but I kept getting images of PIE who co-starred with Geun Young in Cinderella Unni. It wasn’t until the MV was over that I remembered why the song is so familiar, it’s Hyorin‘s “What You Mean to Me” from another craptastic drama with great chemistry, namely Chun Jung Myung and Park Min Young‘s Man of Honor (Glory Jane). I love that OST song and it works perfectly here to showcase the falling in love onscreen of GeumBum. Enjoy!
Could they be any dorkier? I lub them so much in all their nerdy touristy glory. Bummie looks like a backpacker who hasn’t showered in three days, and the wearing his backpack in front is icing on the cake for how he’s not into being cool for the sake of being cool. I know the news reports keep saying they are traveling with friends, but I See No Friends! LOL, friends or no friends around, these two are keeping the burning young love fire alive just fine.
