So Ji Sub is one of those slow burn type actors, and for that he continues to carve his own niche in an industry where overacting is more prevalent thanks to the propensity for makjang plot lines. He recently wrapped up K-drama Oh My Venus, a ratings disappointment despite the combined big names in him with Shin Mina, but overall got a decent buzz with the viewing audience who did watch it. I liked it better than She Was Pretty, but the two was hilariously opposite in tone, with SWP spastic and shrill while OMV was somnambulant and low-energy. The shining win in OMV was the pairing of So Ji Sub with Shin Mina, their chemistry was fantastic and the love story consistent in their affection for each other. So Ji Sub’s latest Star1 pictorial is a nice way to send him off back to pseudo hiberation before he’ll emerge once again when he picks his next acting or singing project.
