So Ji-sub publishes photoessay collection

It’s well-known that So Ji-sub enjoys photography as a hobby, and now he’s joining the growing ranks of actors with published books. On August 31, his photoessay collection, So Ji-sub’s Road (no relation to his recent drama Road No. 1) will be published.

According to So’s rep at management company 51K, the volume will cover stories and photos over the past 13 years since his debut, using unpretentious language and sensitive photography. After wrapping up the filming on Road No. 1, So spent July taking trips to the DMZ and Gangwon province while preparing the book, which is divided into the following categories: Rest and Travel; Freedom; Injury and Healing; Youth and Passion; Memory, Things to Leave Behind; Ours, Mine; and Reconciliation, Love.

Included in the book are his thoughts on the number 51 (reflected in the name of his company), which represents what happens when you take a 50-50 probability and believe just 1% more. (Does that make him a pessimist? I mean, if we’re creating meaning out of random numbers, there’s always that 100…) The K, meanwhile, stands for Korea.

Other essays describe his thoughts on Romeo & Juliet, why he likes rainy days, and stories about meeting other celebs and artists. The book will be available for online pre-orders starting August 23, prior to its official release on the 31st.

Good pick of categories eh!?! I certainly have many events to divide into such categories.

51K is meant 51% Korea, then other 49% chance non-Korea? Is that suppose to interpret him traveling 49% outside Korea?

He seems to balance his life well then.

I just love So Ji Sub :) I fell in love with him at the young age because of "Glass Slipper", and then rediscovered him in "I'm sorry I love you", since then I just loved him even more! I know some poeple think his comeback in "Cain and Abel" does not reflect him as a good actor, but I think he did great!! I loved that drama, one of those dramas that I don't want to fast forward or miss :) ha, i'm just so proud of him.

I am right there with you. So Ji Sub stands out from the pack for me. I think he's a great actor. It's so fun watching "A thousand years of love" and then watching Cain and Abel. I'd say he's grown a lot as an actor. I like that he steps out of the box in his choices. He seems like an honorable man as well. I will be getting this book.

I like this guy. I haven't seen a single project of his, but he gives me good vibes.

Maybe he's a "silent optimist," if there's such a term. And is just being realistic.

You should watch something he's been in! "Cain & Abel", "I'm Sorry, I Love You" ~ You won't regret it.

The photos look great! ...except, well, he's kinda in most of them, so it feels like someone else is actually taking the photos, rather than himself. Granted, he could be using a tripod for all I know...

...but, oh, really, who cares?! The man is gorgeous in here, and the photos have great balance (as far as I can tell)!

he has this sadness about him ever since PYHs passing...like he's aged because of it.

always thought he was an interesting character because he's a shy person but yet a very good actor...of course, goodlooking as well.

Ive been aware of So ji sub since Glass Slippers day and thought that he might be a decent actor bec. he has quite many dramas until I saw Cain and Abel and started to adore him. He is really a good actor and I just came to know that Park yong ha was his best friend, I can imagine how hurt he was when he died. I want him to be happy in life, to always be hopeful, to smile even if he seldom smile (as far as i can see). God bless to you so ji sub, even if I can't meet you someday and even if you can't see me (coz ur so tall hehe) I wish you the best in life.
