Jang Geun Seok Goes All Outdoorsy in Ferrino Spring 2014 Ad Campaign

This isn’t a particularly arresting or interesting clothing endorsement ad campaign, whether standalone or as one of Jang Geun Seok‘s many endorsement deals over the years. What makes this Spring 2014 ad campaign for clothing brand Ferrino worth posting about is the double whammy combo of the clothes are pretty hideous but Jang Geun Seoks look great with his new short do and a very different visual aura than the last few years of androgynous rocker boho hot mess. Even in a series of outfits that are totally meh, he manages to make me sit up and take notice. I like it, and am really happy with Jang Geun Seok keeping his hair short for the time being after cutting it for his last drama Pretty Boy (Bel Ami) to change up his overall image. I honestly did like his long hair rocker style especially during the Mary Stays Out All Night period, but the problem that crept up was the feeling that he was in an acting career rut because he was relishing his real life punk rocker side job. I also like this short hair change because it finally shows Jang Geun Seok’s fine handsome features to his best advantage even if this particular ad campaign seems to have made him overly glossy and photoshopped. I wonder if he’ll do a drama or movie this year and continue sharpening his acting skills. I personally think he’s due to do a sageuk and he’s always been great in the period drama roles such as in Hwang Jin Yi and Hong Gil Dong. We will get to see him act, and opposite Park Shin Hye no less, later this month with Lotte Duty Free releases it’s mini-movie featuring the two of them as lovers exploring Jeju together. Can’t wait!

Jang Geun Seok Goes All Outdoorsy in Ferrino Spring 2014 Ad Campaign — 25 Comments

  1. Uhm……..pretty? Still pretty is all i can say. Verily handsome, but the rock climbing pics seem abysmal. I mean the photoshopping.
    Can’t put a price on that pretty face, yo.
    No no, nuh uh, nada, never.:)

    • i think they used up all their advertisement money for his fee alone…so everything else is green screen and grade school photoshop computer class

  2. He kinda blends into the background because his clothes are not only the same colour as the surroundings but also of the same shade lol. For an outdoorsy photo shoot, Ferrino can look at bean pole for inspiration. Pretty (:

  3. kk the photoshop is so bad, it looks like they literally cut-pasted a silhouette of him (+female model) into the rock and tree pics! But he does look cute, and thank goodness for the new hair. I hope he chooses a different kind of project next time – for all the rut he’s in, he isn’t a bad actor.

    • the photoshop is soooooo bad! lol ๐Ÿ™‚ But at least JGS is looking good (though not as good as in his Beethoven Virus haircut)

  4. Handsome prince of eels. Love him! Ms koala have you seen his graduation photos? Yes very handsome in his classic gray suit. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. When he wants to look good, he looks really good. It’s great to see him keeping that hairstyle. I actually loved most of his gel-hair looks in Bel Ami and think it’s more suitable than the one he’s sporting here. But I’ll take anything short, thankyouverymuch.

    I am So! Damn! Excited! For PSH and JGS’s short movie.

    • Don’t worry, he’s equally handsome without make up on. You can check his graduation pics & you’ll know what I mean. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • No grace are you kidding? Jang Geun Suk has been posing in front of camera since he was 5 years old. Do you know how many magazines he has grazed as its covers for his entire life – hundreds. The advertising executives/companies that pay him millions to be in their ads do not think so.

      • We r all entittle to our opinion getting millions does not mean you are amazing. We see that often with actresses and models. Dont mean to upset anyone. If i did sorry. Just an opinion. I am not talking about his work i talked about those pictures in the post.

      • Your comment does not make any sense to me. Anyway Jang Geun Suk is definitely an amazing person to me & not for the reason that he earns millions. I am his fan way back even before he became super rich. As for actors & models there are various reasons why some actors may get a higher fee than others – star quality (star power), popularity, seniority, ability.

    • you are xpresn your views and we would leave you alone but when jks expresses his u guys call him arrogant and selfish.now evrybody you see the world we live in is decieful?

  6. the background is so photoshopped it makes me cringe… Wish they took oppa out on an actual nature photoshoot…Do LOVE his short hair look, he had his mane of glory for a little too long

  7. Ms Koala, everytime you write abt Jang Geun Suk, I am worried. There were times you seemed hate him so much, but many other times you praised him much, just like this post alone. Deep down in my heart, I do wish you would keep supporting him no matter what, I know you will. Thank you

  8. do you remember the pain and hurt you bore when someone mistreated you.stop the faults finding and mistreatment coz the judgement u give is 5 tyms what you recieve

  9. Agree with most as much as I like JGS , these pictures are just bad. On the side note His other CF photoshoots are all good especially LDF and Caffe beane.
    Like someone mentioned his graduation pics are Good. No make up , no Photoshop , he is natural and very handsome.
