Namgoong Min is Bulked Up and Pissed Off in First Stills from MBC Revenge Action Thriller The Veil

I still get annoyed when drama productions pick a Korean title and then choose an English one that isn’t either a direct translation or at least an approximation in meaning. Upcoming MBC action thriller Black Sun is now called The Veil which could point to whatever shadowy organization that male lead Namgoong Min is trying to topple. He’s been bulking up like a madman since finishing filming for sci-fi drama Awaken (Night and Day) and the first official stills show how much muscle he’s packing on even underneath his white dress shirt and black jacket. I think Namgoong Min takes his craft very seriously and I applaud it but I could buy him as a special ops agent even without The Rock level muscles, but then again totally not complaining here.

  3. I watched Awaken because it has NGM. So I will watch Black Sun/ The Veil no matter what.
    The bulked up physique is just a wonderful bonus.

  4. NGM is seriously hot, sexy & manly on another level. That’s why I like k-actors above 35. He’s looking a bit tanned here which will propel his character to iconic status. A middle finger to those pale, pasty white, foundation laden ML characters. I have been loving him since 12 Years Promise. I’m currently re-watching Beautiful Gong Shim. Adore his mesmerising eyes when he goes soft and tender. He can do comedy, drama, slice of life, thriller and now action. Not surprised if he gets nominated again in Baeksang next year.

  5. I like Nam better than many A-list Hallyu actors. I looked up his age, damn he’s 43! He ages like fine wine. Jin Ah Reum is sure one lucky lady. This is a rare instance of a great K-actor who is not afraid to hide his GF. Doesn’t even care that it will affect his IG followers or popularity. Still getting awesome roles. Even publicly thanked her and said he loves her in his KBS acceptance speech. Total respect for this guy.

  6. Oppa fighting. I prefer his boyish avatar compared to manly avatar, still he looks magnificent here.

    It’s okay if he didn’t win awards since looking at the past winners the awards don’t deserve oppa as receipt. Scratch it, even this planet doesn’t deserve oppa as a inhabitant.

    • I don’t understand why celerity with old age decides to do botox. It is dangerous and does not look good either.

    • Irony is he said he does inject botox on his forehead. But the trick is that he doesn’t overdo it imo. For someone whose 43 yrs old, he looks fit and still luminous! Not that 43 is old lol. Also bonus points for his natural skin tone shining through, no more pasty white skin on those who aren’t that skin tone!!

      • Yess he admit inject botox in 2014 but he still can full of emotions and doing multi dimensional character.Not like someone in 33-34 year old that can’t move face because his cheek full of botox and he was hallyu actor btw.

  7. He already was super hot in Awaken. I’m not of fan of too muscular men but he still looks good. I like the haircut.

  8. I like Namgoong Min because he isn’t stuck in a typecast acting role in every drama. He seems to enjoy finding different characters to portray and he does it very well.
