Jang Geun Seok and Lee Min Jung for the July Edition of W Korea Magazine

Jang Geun Seok has been very busy for the early half of 2011 despite not having a drama project since wrapping Mary Stayed Out Last Night. He’s released a solo album in Japan and is currently filming You’re My Pet with Kim Haneul. He’s featured in July’s edition of W Korea magazine (with Lee Min Jung) doing a very edgy desert shoot that appears to channel a light and darkness dichotemy.

Personally, I don’t much like these pictures. It’s cool and visually arresting, but it’s not something I find myself wanting to look at over and over. Also, I don’t think Seok and Min Jung have much chemistry. Regardless, have a look. The hairstyle on Seok is what he’ll be sporting in YMP. The day Seok cuts his hair I will throw a bloggy party here at the playground.

Jang Geun Seok and Lee Min Jung for the July Edition of W Korea Magazine — 40 Comments

  1. This may make no sense – but he looks like the lovechild of Johnny Depp as Willie Wonka and Dorothy from the Golden Girls….

    • Min Jung is an Angel Bird captured by rocker Seok? Min Jung is a Aviary Princess stranded in the desert? W (in any country) is always WTH for me in terms of concept. Min Jung is always gorgeous regardless. She doesn’t always have chemistry with her co-stars, but she manages never to shrink in any couple shots.

      • Yes, absolutely Ms Koala. LMJ has a beauty that wasn’t even dwarfed by No Min Woo and he is beautiful too.

  2. I can’t decide if he’s singing to a phallus or if the cactus is a music critic and flipping him off. My inner fujoshi says its the first (along with all sorts of comments imma refrain from making here).

  3. i personally want to strangle his stylist!! WTF is up with his hair?? i want the old clean cut version that was manly and sexy! i had only seen him in YB and then i looked him up and i was like 0_O he is HOTTTT!! i want that again!!

    Can i come to the party at the playground when he cuts his hair? i promise ballons with his face on them 😀

  4. also, i think there is zero chemistry with lee min jung…he looked better with han hyo joo in the recent post…

  5. I guess they are trying to make his hair like Matsumoto Jun was in Your my Pet. I don’t know what I think about that.

  6. These pictures are related to Cartier Bague CF , if I don’t get it wrong the theme is “love has no limit”. Love between a rocker and a deaf women…

  7. Dear Ockoala, thtis is not related to your article but just want to let you know as I was leaving Taiwan going to Hong Kong yesterday, I saw tons of girl fans waiting at the entrance of the Taiwan Custom for Jang Geum Seok. I almost want to change my flight just so I can catch a glimps of him. I was secretly hoping that maybe he will go to the VIP lounge so I can ambush him and get a signature for you!…but that was only my wishful thinking. =(

    • YOU DID WHAT?!?! Why didn’t you call me. I disown you. For not changing you flight. OMGOMGOMG.

      You could have seen Jang Geun Seok and you didn’t?!?! Did having too much fun fry your brain. Don’t come home.

      P.S. What did you buy me? XD *grabbity*

  8. Don’t like it even if JGS is in it. 🙁

    Btw, I got the computer and I have to send it back. I’m SO sad, chingu. It’s gonna take a while before we can IM each other again.

    Oh and I’m skipping your spoilery LTM post. I want to be surprised when I watch the ep! I am tempted, though.

  9. Don’t really like the concept… the only reason it’s good to my eyes was because JGS did it. He can get away with anything, that’s why he is who he is 😀

  10. JKS did say that he loves his long hairstyle, and he has to keep this hairstyle for his role in YMP. But I’m sure he will change it if the role in the future requires him to. 🙂

  11. Hmmm…..is it just me….or is he getting more feminine…..I liked him best in “You’re Beautiful”……don’t like him when he is all girly……at times it’
    s like looking at two different people…..and recently…I don’t like what I see 🙁
