It took me a few seconds to place where K-actor Gong Yoo was at in his latest Bazaar Korea pictorial shot in the US. I thought Queens, NY and then switched correctly to San Francisco once I saw the famed row houses. It’s an interesting shoot with the stylistic choice of dressing Gong Yoo like an overgrown school boy or preppy college student with a penchant for oversized clothing. He still looks great and his beaming smile in one of the shots warms my cockles.
This year may see a drama comeback but will for sure have a movie return as he’s sign on for the movie adaptation of best selling Korean novel 1982 Kim Ji Young (Born in 1982, Kim Ji Young) reuniting him for the third time with Jung Yumi after Silenced (The Crucible) and Train to Busan. Those two times they worked together to battle evil but this time he plays her husband and also takes a comparative backseat as the story is about the female lead’s sudden transformation in personality after dealing with years of social patriarchy and gender bias.
