I think it would be hard to argue that Song Seung Heon is a very good looking man and he takes really good pictures. He’s got an insanely chiseled body but I much prefer him clothed and just striking a pose en vogue. Without a currently airing drama he’s been very quiet in Korea in terms of exposure, which is also a due to him filming a movie that is due out in 2014. The movie is called Human Addiction and has gotten tons of press for being an adult rated movie. Those are actually relatively common in South Korean cinema so I’m still amused it causes tittering whenever a new one is announced. The movie is set in the 1960’s and Song Seung Heon plays a colonel in the Korean war. He’s married to sexpot Jo Yeo Jung, who may or may not be playing a sexy wife in the movie but she surely is sexy in real life, but ends up in a passionate and illicit affair with the wife of his subordinate. Said wife is played by rookie actress Lim Ji Yeon while her husband is played by Oh Joo Won. This movie comes from the directing-writing hands of veteran Kim Dae Woo who did The Servant and The Forbidden Quest. Both movies were also quite risque so clearly this is within his element. I’m actually not interested in the prospect of Song Seung Heon taking off his trousers and getting it on for the sake of cinematic glory. I really really want to see him improve as an actor. Period. He’s been coasting on his looks for nearly two decades and it’s time he stepped up his game. I adore him and yes it’s shallow but I do see something very charismatic about him onscreen. Too bad when he tries to emote everything just falls flat. I’m hoping his first foray into NC-17 territory might be catalyst to allow him to be less self-conscious and more just letting the feelings fly onscreen. As for when he wants just look good, he can always grace any magazine and preen to his heart’s content, like here in the December issue of Men’s Uno Malaysia. He looks mighty fine and I felt my heart flutter just gazing upon his cheekbones and intense gaze.
