The Naked Kitchen press preview

At this point, you have to wonder if Joo Ji-hoon (Antique Bakery, Devil) is purposely messing with us. I mean, sure, fashion models often target that “ugly is fashionable” trend, which I always think is just like their way of flaunting, “Look, I’m dressed like a deranged serial-killer hobo, but I’m still prettier than you!”

On the other hand, sometimes it’s just plain ugly. And for some reason, this is becoming something of a pattern for Joo Ji-hoon.

Here he is at the January 19 press conference for his new project, the film The Naked Kitchen co-starring Shin Mina (Go Go 70) and Kim Tae-woo (Tokyo Showers).

I mean, it isn’t as though Joo doesn’t know how to dress, or can’t wear sharp fashions. On the very same day as his Kitchen press conference, the actor showed up at the showcase for his new musical role in the production of Don Juan looking like this:

Did he figure that he’d fulfilled his dapper quota for the day and couldn’t risk showing off too much of his good looks for fear of overwhelming us with his pretty? (Chris Kattan voice doing Antonio Banderas: “Too sexy, too sexy!” I’m going to be really sad if nobody is old enough to get that reference.)

 

In any case, the plot of Kitchen revolves around a woman who is married but falls in love with another man (Kim Tae-woo is the husband, Joo the Other Man). Shin Mina’s character doesn’t intend to fall in love, but happens upon it naturally.

The film’s title comes from the fact that Joo’s character is a gifted chef, while Kim’s character is a successful fund manager who dreams of being a top chef and gives up his former career to pursue the latter.

Despite the subject of adultery, it seems the film is aiming for a sweet, light feel. Here’s the preview:

Kitchen opens on February 5. Meanwhile, Joo’s musical Don Juan runs from Feburary 6 through March 8.

“Look, I’m dressed like a deranged serial-killer hobo, but I’m still prettier than you!”

ROFL!!! :)

He looks vaguely reminiscent to me of recent Song Seung-hun poses in picture #1, with that wink and that smile.

Maybe they’re endorsing Dr Mart’s or something ^ ^ … notice him and Shin Min-ah wearing similar lace-ups, with Joo Ji-hun's more suitably hoboishly beaten-up looking?

Thanks for the trailer- looks like something I will watch out for!

If i'm not wrong, he's sporting a one-piece formal jumpsuits from the winter line of Le Mechanique: for the mechanic who wants to look good while tooling under the hood.

The worst part is that Jo In Sung wore a similar disaster here: http://img136.imageshack.us/img136/323/f0046111495ce5b66e2b2si5.jpg

Why? Why do they try to hide teh pretty?

(Chris Kattan voice doing Antonio Banderas: “Too sexy, too sexy!” I’m going to be really sad if nobody is old enough to get that reference.)

I'm cracking up at this! I guess I am old too huh?

But it saddens me that he and Jo In Sung for that matter, chose to dress so....oddly.

Maybe they really don't want to kill us with the pretty?

So if I get the reference, does it mean that it's not old or that we're both old together? :/

Why do these celebs try and dress so "out-there" thats its not even appealing to the average person. I mean sometimes I have to really laugh at these "outfits" they put together. Then there are some that are so perfect everytime and know what classy dressing is. Jeans are fine...suits are great, tuxes even better but geeeezzz jumpsuits and leather outfits...for crying out loud. Maybe I'm getting too old! :0(

"Did he figure that he’d fulfilled his dapper quota for the day and couldn’t risk showing off too much of his good looks for fear of overwhelming us with his pretty?" LOTFL!!!!! Javabeans, you're a genius, a genius, I tell you!

And yes, I also join you, Infiniti512 and belleza in getting the Kattan/Bandeiras reference... Oh, well, at least I got to enjoy you post more than a lot of people! XD

As For JJH dress sence (or lack thereof...), I guess this time I would let it pass, since he looks so adorable in the humongous promotional poster at the back that there is an actual possibility of the pretty overwhelming us... :P

Firstly...is that a jumpsuit?? Jeez!

Secondly, maybe he gets tired of looking snappy all the time...you know, like the days we all just wanna wear sweats and a ratty t-shirt! Maybe this is his version of 'Casual Friday' since this is a work related event??? I dunno...

Anyway, film looks good, nice cinematography~ I'll happily watch it when someone so kindly subs and posts it!

Ugh! I think Joo Ji Hoon is such a fine looking man but I can't believe he is actually dressing like that (in the first picture). I can't believe he is wearing a jumpsuit and then tucking it in to his boots. All he needs is a sitck with a bandana tied to the end and he will definitely look like a hobo. Whoever his stylist is needs to be fired for putting him in such a hideous outfit.

I agree. JJH's a fine man, but I don't get how some guys like him seem to downplay their looks with weird outfits.

mechanic's jumpsuit? no way. that's garbage man chic all the way. and is that a tuxedo jacket w/ tails he's sporting on top?! with army boots that look like he just trudged through the sahara? it's like he mugged a garbage man, soldier and conductor for his outfit and slapped it on w/ a hat circa 1950.

but what kills me is that in the first pic, he's standing in front of a picture where he looks so damn adorable. checkered shirt, vest, killer grin and the hair...sigh...

ahh omg i have to disagree here and say i LOVE what he's wearing. (lol and i'm not being facetious)
the jumper looks like its made of black linen (amazing) and i love love the army boots that he's got on. the way he's got his pants tucked into his boots reminds me of mizushima hiro's style... the jacket looks well-made too, but its probably supposed to worn with something more fitted underneath.

he may be veering into maison martin margiela/ commes des garcons territory... which explains the weirdness a bit.

this is may be the first time i've been excited by what a korean celebrity is wearing. lol but then again i'm a little nuts

This poor boy is much too attractive to dress so badly. Then again maybe the point is to get people to talk about him for whatever reason? He has definitely accomplished that. A long time ago Dolly Parton did an interview, one of the questions concerned her clothing choices and she answered that it cost a lot of money to look this way. So maybe a questionable wardrobe is an innocuous way getting attention, better than creating some type of scandalous situation? It's just a thought!
