Cha Seung Won radiates confidence. He radiates confidence whether he’s dressed or topless, because he knows he looks good either way. He’s like a potato, delicious baked or fried. For L’Officiel Hommes, the magazine decided to give us Cha Seung Won served both ways. I’ll put the clothed version first and hide the muscly one after the jump, because this here is a family friendly blog. He hasn’t been in a drama since the Hong Sisters romcom Best Love last Summer, a drama that I’m still rather ambivalent about. My live-airing recaps were quite positive and effusive, but I confess that it did get a tad tiring watching it with all the frenetic energy emanating from the screen and an OTP that really wasn’t all that chemistry-laden. But during the watch the experience rather swept me up into it and it was only afterwards that it deflated immediately like a balloon. My favorite Cha Seung Won performance still remains his brilliant Jo Gook in City Hall, all devilish and cunning and vulnerable wrapped up into one, and I’m hoping he picks a drama that allows him to both be comedic and serious without going into the extremes of either. Or he can just continue to grace magazine covers modeling impeccable menswear and/or his abs and I’m cool with that.
