Kim Bum, you’ve got some work(ing out) to do


Julien Kang

…and that’s because here we have a couple of new photos showing off the hard bod of Julien Kang, an actor who plays a fellow mixed martial arts fighter character in the upcoming SBS drama Dream.

Not only does Julien have the muscular physique to play such an athlete, he’s the real-life younger brother to fighter Dennis Kang — not that this makes him an automatically better fighter, but it does suggest he’s got a certain familiarity with the sport.

Meanwhile, Dream headliner Kim Bum is certainly looking adorable these days, but he’s got a ways to catch up if he wants to bulk up to hold his own as a juvenile delinquent-turned-fighter. (As we can see from his latest appearances and recent movie stills, despite the fact that Kim Bum is purportedly working out for his drama role, he still looks as much a skinny pretty boy as ever.)

Dream premieres in August.

 

Here’s another one of Julien Kang:

 

While here we have another co-star, Marco:

 

Meanwhile, here’s Kim Bum just a few days ago on June 11:

(Poor kid. Please don’t eat him alive!)

Those guys may have hard bods (which I will admire) but they still got NOTHING on my Kim Bum! He will still be the hottest guy on the show (IMHO).

I am VERY excited about this show, and I'm REALLY hoping Dramafever gets it. Not only does it star MY Kim Bum, but it's a show about martial arts (for quite a while in high school & college I was obsessed with the Kickboxer movies) so I am SO there!

I have no doubt my boy can hold his own among the other actors. I highly look forward to HIS shirtless shots!

Why do these poses make me think 'Calvin Klein ad's circa 'Marky Mark?' (and if you know who/what I mean - good to see I ain't the only person of that vintage that adores this blog!)

OK - as much as I love Kim Bum - he looks like extremely boyish when compared to these pics of Julien Kang (I no clue to who he was but now definitely on my radar :) and Marco. But then again he is clothed LOL! II know Kim Bum is a upcoming talented actor to watch, whereas the others are not known as actors (..well to me).

Marco and Juilen look more like (fine looking) models-giving acting a shot. Only know Marco was a bit of a goof ball (who liked to show off his bod hehehe) in 'We got Married'. Good for them - but I know I'll be watching 'Dream' for Kim Bum, at first. Then we'll see.

maybe he's really fit UNDERNEATH the clothes? sort of like Neil Patrick Harris. I watch NPH on how i met your mother and he looks really skinny in the suits his characters wear. But maybe like 3 times per season, we get to see him topless or with his shirt open and he's pretty muscular.

Hehe, I hope he continues working out and getting buff.
I totally agree asianromance, sometimes someone you don't expect to have a fit body may have the fittest body of all :D

I don't care what the other guys look like, Kim Bum is still my favorite - remember he is only 20 or something.

Dayum.
Poor Kim Bum...will he be relegated to the shirt-wearing fighters' group?
Will fighting topless be akin to being the red-uniformed U.S.S. Enterprise crew member,
and only the clothed fighters can win?

Alright, I'm trying this again. I thought I would be the first poster, but my comment never showed up, and I am one of Kim Bum's biggest fans. In fact, I tend to claim him as my own! :) I'm not sure why my first comment didn't post, but I'm going to copy it here and try to post again. Here goes!

Ok, that being said, while these other actors have very nice bods which I will enjoy looking at, I have no doubt Kim Bum will hold his own. I can't wait to see what he's hiding under that suit of his!

But..but..if Kim Bum is getting muscular he won't be as cute as now! Enough muscular actors, we still need some cute ones! :p

I definitely will watch Dream, for the sake of Joo Jin Moo. I don't care with those two actors above but additional eye candies won't hurt, right?
( Still don't like Son Dam Bi as lead actress )

maybe Kim Bum hiding some serious washboard abs under those clothes? (maybe....).... oh well.....the movie needs the pretty!

I have to agree with @13 djes though...... i'd watch for Joo Jin Moo (Hot!)

Poor Kim Bum. I have a feeling he'll just wing this (and suck in it) just like he did his 'sax' scenes in BOF. Although, I wouldn't say Julien has an awesome bod. He's got no abs (to me). It's like he's simply sucking it in.

However, Marco sure is looking hot! Wait, I think it's just the pics that did the trick for me. LOL!

Marco of "We got Married fame"...?? I'm not sure how great an actor he'd be. He was so-so in his pairing with Som-Dam-Bi (female Rain) but not sure how he'll hold up here.

Lol…Kim Bun is out of their league and the two is out of his league too. KM is more of a stuff toy you want to coddle and protect but we can’t deny his oozing charisma.

I hope he grows some chest muscles ..no point in having a six-packs if your chest is flat as a board. It looks really weird.

Oh yay for Marco starting in a drama.

..I completely forget that Son Dambi is in this! WGM's Killer Couple reunited.. except they're probably not being paired up in this drama. :(

Clever headline...

Kim Bum > everyone. I've said it before and I will not stop saying it again.

JB, you are so clever. hehe.

Still, they are probably in different weight classes, right? JK looks to be about 72 kg, and Marco looks like about 66 kg. Kim Bum is probably closer to 61 kg if he were to get cut.

Anyhoo, in MMA though it isn't so much about muscularity as it is about speed and technique. If this were straight up boxing or TKD, then strength and power are probably determinative factors. But in MMA, grappling and submission technique are probably more important, especially for less skilled fighters.

So, if they teach Kim Bum how to protect himself and how to ground fight, that should be enough to keep it realistic. It won't look pretty, but maybe he won't look out of place.

Oh well, am all for Kim Bum.... Knock 'em down with your killer smile!!!

and that "frozen flower" guy, JJM, is way hotter than DK!!!!

@4 bspanda - i thought exactly the same thing about the marky mark ads.... totally has the same feel.

@28 mishane - i think he's too adorable to be 'hot', but maybe if i were younger than him i'd find him hot? he is super cute tho... really liked him in bbf. and c'mon, how can you resist his smile and dimples?? :)

LOL @ JB's last comment~!!

i'll definately be watching this for kim bum tho... interested in seein him play a different character than yi jung.

@28, mishane

I know exactly what you mean! It's hard to find Kim Bum "hot" when he's young enough to be my child; beautiful, yes, hot...not so much. He's just ridiculously adorable.

I don't seem to have that problem with Rain, however...not in the slightest. Anytime he wants to visit Cougarville USA, he'll be welcomed most enthusiastically. ;-)

But I digress...

Yeah, he looks so delicate. I can't imagine him going from a shih tzu to a pit bull.

He should train in Muay Thai, Jiu Jitsu, or Krav Maga. It will also come in handy against those pesky AnyCall thugs.

Kim Bum should pack some meat for preparation for his character. No matter how good of an actor he is, if he's looking all slender and cute, it'll be hard for him to convince viewers that he's really into martial arts.

But I guess buffing up will come along since he'll study martial arts through out the series. He's still cute and adorable though =) But a little tired looking too.

Well i'm not that into man's six pack body..Sometimes, i hate it when some actors often show their six pack body although it doesn't necessary in their drama or movie..Anyway, i still like Kim Bum and his acting..

Six pack body is so out of my league..
BUMAA~~NO NEED TO WORKING OUT (YOUR BODY), YOU ARE STILL ADORABLE..PROOF THAT SIX PACK BODY IS NOT THE KEY TO BE A GREAT ACTOR..

That Kang guy has nothing on Kim Bum.
His body may be hard, but it doesn't look that good. It seems sorta unchiseled. Not that it's bad, but Kim Bum is a lot cuter.

Oh! come on guys, let's not compare our Kim Bum to those fully grown men. He's only 20 while Marco & Julien are on their 30's. Were they as cute as Kim Bum 10 yrs. ago?. That's why Kim Bum was picked for the lead role of a juvenile because he can give justice to the character. And, btw, Mr. Webster defines juvenile as "physically immature or undeveloped". And that's where JJM comes in. See, Kim Bum is the perfect choice!. Way to go, Kim Bum!

-whistle- nice V line (and six-pack too maybe but I don't see it in the pic) on Julien & the four-pack for Marco ;D I'd tap that jk.

Hey, but did Kim Bum looked so different in EOE and he did fight too? He was great in that so I believe he's fine with some make up and more work out.

I'm starting to have a crush on Kim Bum; but yes Marco's body is banging. I've only seen Marco on "We Got Married," during this time, and continually, I was cyber stalking anything on Kim Hyun Joong. Ahhhh, these Korean men need to stop...I'm going into a frenzy!!!
