I wonder if anytime I mention a favorite actor or actress of mine that has been on the down low for a bit of time then he or she would suddenly reappear like magic. I was chatting with drama dongsaengs last week when talk turned to Moon Geun Young and how she’s been completely and totally MIA since she got back on her high profile month long European vacation with her smexy new boyfriend Kim Bum. A quick refresher on the couple – Moon Geun Young got cast as the lead in the sageuk Goddess of Fire and had zero chemistry with male lead Lee Sang Yoon and bucketfuls of chemistry with second male lead Kim Bum. The drama stunk to high Heaven and the best thing to come out of it was the confirmation that Moon Geun Young and Kim Bum didn’t just spark onscreen in their characters, they did in fact spark offscreen as well and became one of the hottest new K-ent couples after the drama wrapped. They jetted off to Europe and was snapped by other tourists who recognized them before returning to Korean hand-in-hand walking the media gauntlet at the arrivals terminal of the airport.
I still remember Bummie smiling like a cat got cream while poor Geun Young looked alternatively dazed and confused crossed with petrified to have so many reporters swarming their arrival. She then went underground for the last five months with nary a peep out of her, and Bummie also laid low after he did the That Winter, The Wind Blows Japan fanmeeting with Jo In Sung. I cracked a joke that they were clearly still in the honeymoon phase because they recently were spotted at the movie theater holding hands while watching a movie. Moon Geun Young finally surfaced last week at the movie premiere for the movie Han Gong Ju looking fantastic, chic and easygoing with her usual sweet confidence. I’m thinking she’ll be announcing a project soon since she’s taken the first steps back to the limelight. Anything will be a step up from GoF and I’ll be waiting anxiously to find out what movie or drama she picks next.
