More from Yoo Ah-in’s Esquire shoot

If yesterday’s Yoo Ah-in post taught us anything, it’s that we cannot be trusted to formulate coherent thoughts or carry on lucid discussion when in the presence of adorable new Yoo Ah-in photo shoots. Which I suspect bothers nobody, myself included.

On the other hand, can we all handle TWO such instances, back-to-back like this? I dunno, he’s mighty cute…

These newly released images are from Yoo Ah-in’s recent trip to Thailand, and show a more playful side to his personality than we saw in his intense, tough-guy persona in Sungkyunkwan Scandal. THAT guy was the one who made your heart do little flippity-flips in your chest as he gruffly tried to keep his feelings hidden under a stern shell, while THIS guy is the one you’d just squeal to have call you “noona.”

These photos will be published in his December Esquire spread. I never buy fashion mags just because an actor is in it, but for once I’m mighty tempted…

(It just occurred to me that he looks like he’s standing amongst a bunch of green onions — you know, those long green stalks of 파 — which would make him ever so wee, and therefore portable, like you could tuck him in your pocket and carry him around with you…)

Via Joy News, how appropriate

lol, I've been to Korea, and there aren't exactly A LOT of hot guys. It's pretty much the same in every country, there are some hot guys, but not EVERYONE'S super hot. But almost everyone in Seoul is pretty stylish! It's much more laid back in the south like in Busan. :P

that's the power of multimedia for you :-) we are led to believe all hot guys can only come from south korea, hahahahaha! ive been there and sure there were loads of 'em but that's not saying other places don't have their own arsenal of squeal-worthy men. they just dont sell 'em as well and swell as they do in SK. :-)

what i noticed in SK pop culture is that men/boys are packaged as beautifully as the girls, stylish, too...in other cultures men are raw, rough and not as self-conscious. but what sets them apart are the stories in the films, tv series that provide a sure-fire vehicle to launch them to swoon-kingdom. it's all about the stories that grip our imaginations and make us drool for this boy-masquerading-as-a-gruff-hunk of a man.

blame them on the writers/producers/directors/image-makers, i would say...we are taking the bait hook, line and sinker ;-)

I live outside of Korea but there are many Asians around here. If I spot a hot Asian guy, 90% of them were speaking Korean. :/ But for me, it's not entirely about looks, it's about the aura. It might sound weird, but I particularly like the aura of Korean actors and celebrities. And I sometimes laugh at plastic surgery comments, because like I've said, I cannot ever become like Kim tae hee with surgical enhancement even if it sounds a little harsh on myself. Surgery only can make you look like Shin bong seon and Boom most of the time, or I may become like Angela baby with massive surgery, but not Kim tae hee or Song hye gyo. I'm not trying to offend anybody here, but I'm doing a reality check..

My friends & I were luckier...cuz we stayed in a GuestHouse that was like 2 corners from Hongdae...and boy, did we see so many HOT young Korean males!!!!
It's a cool Bohemian place near Hongik University & I'm not bragging when I say there was at least 1 or 2 Hotties in every nook & cranny of that district!!! Of course, there were chic, fashionable girls, as well...almost all wearing 5 inch heels & carrying designer bags!!!
That's why I so love M3...cuz it's mostly shot in Hongdae...reminds me of those beautiful memories of just hanging out there!!!

I know, I've used lemon grass in my own cooking and I've grown up with my mom cooking it and my dad growing it. It seems that it could be a different variety that grows to be very long. Just looking at the bottom portion of those stalks it definitely looks like lemon grass.

So did I, I thought my perception was off, either that or they have huge green onions in thailand. Lol at him trying to blend in, imagine what that sale went like... Uhm gimme that one! This one?

Dear javabeans,

Although you're bringing us utter joy us by presenting these photos of the Moon Man/Boy, I am getting the weird suspicion that you're trying to eliminate competition by disabling everyone with massive and frequent doses of our favorite drug. If it were true, it is highly effective.

If comments to future Yoo Ah In features drastically dwindle, it would be because by that time, the most addicted among us had totally lost faculties to even perform simple psycho-motor coordination and suffer from decline of basic sensory-perceptual competencies.

I'm deciding on self-regulation to Moon exposure by now, lest I join the legion of falling dominoes. At the very least, my rhythm of inhale-and-exhale has been frequently disrupted. And what of my heartbeat? My knees? My eyes! My sanity!!!

It may be that he was sweating underneath that pile of fabric, but me ogling at his photos is making me sweat corn bits! :(

Prolonged exposure to Moonshine can be bad for one's health. More so that the victim, albeit knowing all these, remain smiling. You don't just get physical deterioration, the Moon's effect goes cranial: you see, I'm already developing dread from slicing onions for fear that I might have left my pocket-sized Moony amidst the bundle of greens. I had to check in between the stalks! :(

Look at what you've done to me! Am I glad that you're not a nurse! You don't know "overdose," woman! :P

P.S.

Thanks so much for the photos. LOVED THEM!!! :)

It's really not that. I absolutely realize that aesthetically Yoo Ah In is squee-worthy. but other than as Guhro, images of my teenage students being teenagers just take over. And I find myself thinking, oy, headache, kids. Kids who are so young and blessed/cursed with the blissful ignorance of youth, who make me by turns laugh with them and want to wring their necks.

Total killjoy.

The only one young un who doesn't have that effect is Lee Minho, primarily because he looks older than his age.

Thanks, though, very sweet of you.

0

Oh! Yes, kids can be a delightful nuisance sometimes but adorable nonetheless :-)

Sounds like you really enjoy being a teacher :-) and is responsible enough to rein in your fascination for YAI so as not to cloud your judgement with the kids. That's admirable!

Lee Min Ho sure looks older than his age maybe because of his general demeanor,his height/built and how he carries himself but mentally I'd guess that Yoo Ah In may be the more mature. Just a guess! ;-) I ve not read an interview yet of LMH so I would not know for sure...

0

I'm not sure if there's any conscious, admirable reining in on my part. It just is. Although he's in the process of physically emerging out of teenhood into adulthood, he still looks too much like my kids. Just nothing there.

Lee Minho - you're absolutely right. Totally his height, build, and reserved demeanor. YAI has a bit more youthful exuberance, insouciance, and slightness of build. (I think Song Joongki actually has broader shoulders/frame than YAI does.)

As for maturity, YAI obviously approaches life with a seriousness that I can only describe as a deep commitment to life. But even his wrestling with existential questions, though it shows a particular kind of intellectual maturity, also gives away that he's very young, absolutely imbued with idealistic fervor of youth, which is good and admirable. When my friends and I were in college, we claimed so fervently that we forever wanted to remain idealistic, angry (in a productive way) young women who questioned and challenged life and society. As we ought to have, but one thing I appreciate about having left behind my 20s is the ability to see and live life without zealous urgency, in other words to be able to be idealistic without all that furiousness.

That said, I really am impressed by so many of the 86-87ers, their thoughtfulness, maturity, professionalism, etc. It's inspirational, frankly.

0

Your comment, anais, about YAI's intellectual maturity based on his existential questions indicating a youthful perspective might be spot on. I notice that as someone grows older the fervor dies down. But it might also show a hunger for truth and deeper questions in life that he is dealing with and age may not be the reason. Anyways, it is rare for somebody so young and in the field he is in to espouse such lofty/deep thoughts. You are right, it shows his deeper commitment to life. I hope that he will find the answers to those questions from sources that would truly lead him to the right path.

Im curious...if you dont mind, what age group of kids do you teach? Is it college level? And which country is this? Thank you for yr reply to this...

"we might not be able to meet another YAI in the future with that strange mix of mystery, innocence, passion and what-have-yah!"

Yeah!!! How right you are!!! I believe there is no second YAI...

unless...

we...

CLONE him!!! Yes!!! Yes!!! :)

Wow, anais and samgetang!!! :)

Thank you so much, gals, for your insightful comments on YAI having a keen intellect mixed with youthful exuberance, idealism and commitment to striving to become a better human being...

I have so much fun reading your posts...do continue with such cerebral discussions...2 brilliant minds producing brilliant insights... :)

How blessed I am to know both of you here... :)

...

And I agree that YAI is far more mature than Lee Min Ho especially because I have read interviews conducted with LMH and his answers were no way near as in-depth, intelligent or thought-provoking as YAI's were...

But then LMH is a few years younger than YAI...so maybe in a few years, who knows if LMH will catch up on the intellectual front? :)

Oh, you used to dream of being a teacher? :)
But, I'm sure you are not a bratty pupil - just incredibly bright and curious and so easily bored...
the classroom can be a place where we can go bonkers with boredom...
except....
if we have a cloned MJS.........

Oooohhhhh...a noona can dream... :)

...

As for "my patience" when dealing with kids...

truth be told, its not because I'm patient that I am into my 8th year as a teacher, but simply because I've invested so much time, money and energy in teacher-training that I have to no choice but to struggle through however tough it is...hehe :)

But I am so thankful to God for those pupils who are such a joy to teach, that I feel so heartened to be in a line of work where I am allowed to be in the midst of such wonderful young individuals... :)
such kids are the reason I feel I have done something right... hehe :)

hi mil....welcome to the club! :-)

we are all sort-of virtual stalkers here, living double lives (sometimes, multiple lives hehe) doing our own thing in our real worlds and finding huge fun (guilty pleasure) with like-minded crazy kdramalovers...we hope we are building lives by sharing such joys together in a harmless way. all these crazy talk are just talk and we hope we are better persons for it, enriching our own lives and not diminishing from them. alongside with the fun we also enjoy the intelligent and wise discussions, the meditations and airing our questions in a safe environment. we hope to learn from all the lovely people who adorn this site.

yes, thanks to dramabeans, ive found cool friends to enjoy the kdrama journey together....

so, enjoy yr time here! love to have you with us :-)

im a freelance clothing designer by the way and so most of the time i'm online while i do my design and research work :-) that is also why i stalk kdrama for the fashion as well as for stories ;-)

i love to read books when im not online ;-) and volunteer with the kids on weekends...i enjoy travel as well and amateur photography, having a chat with friends...and i enjoy being samgetang when im here at dramabeans; being friends with koreandramalover, sumee, izzie and a host of others...whom i hope to meet in person someday ;-) and share how much fun we've had here and hope to continue to have in the future. :-)

SKKS is memorable for me because it led me not only to this site and to the amazing javabeans and girlfriday and the rest of their team :-) but also to all the coolest commenters on kdramaland, if not planet earth haha!

What do you think of the look styled for Mary Stayed Out? Curious to hear the take of someone in the industry.

Im not so into MSOAN although Im trying to watch it now. I hope the flow of the story gets better. The style? Fashion-wise I love how they don the bohemian-indie rocker look on JGS. He is too beautiful though for the look to get the edge it needed compared to lets say somebody with a more manly look. All those hair!!!! On JGS and MGY!!! I dont know why MGY had to have all that hair. She looks adorable but I was thinking what if she carried a more tame look... even a pixie hair-do? Would it be a more matching look that will foil the already long hairstyle on JGS? Just a personal experiment. Her clothes though are cute and matches the crazy lifestyle of her Mary role. :-)

Thanks, anais, for asking that question...made me think more about it :-)

0

I absolutely was ready to give up on MSOAN after the episode 1 but stuck with it because I am just so impressed with JGS. The story gets absolutely better, fortunately. Just wait til you get to the end of Ep 3. Squee time.

MSOAN's styling both visually and sound-wise, I just have to let it go. Some commenter elsewhere had observed aptly that s/he'd never heard so many power chords in supposed indie songs. I don't know whether the aesthetic missteps are production's or if they indeed aren't missteps but rather genuinely reflective of the scene in Hongdae. I'm inclined to believe the former, but I'm not in Korea so can only admit to having a skewed understanding.

0

I saw episode 3 of MSOAN already and yes, I would have to agree, the ending part was really hilarious! a classic!

I agree with you on the musical scoring -- a lot to be desired, considering that the backdrop of the drama is the indie rock scene. they could have done a lot better! so much potential, i was thinking...even though i am not musically inclined i would say many of the scenes could use more musical elaboration that could've helped create/increase the tension/drama. hope they will improve on this aspect...they should learn a lesson or two from SKKS with just the right music at the right moment, i felt that they did an amazing job on that one!

"All those hair!!!! On JGS and MGY!!! I dont know why MGY had to have all that hair."

- reminds of Glee's hairography.

I haven't seen an episode of MSOAN, although I read recaps her (seen their photos). I, also, am disturbed by the amount of hair MGY has on for the drama. Any more strands and she will have a stunning resemblance to Cousin Itt.

As for JGS (aka The Actor Whom I Formerly Pine For), I get hair insecurity whenever I see his luscious locks. I can't say any more. Thoughts of long haired guys automatically leads me back to Gur-oh.

Maybe I should start watching MSOAN.

0

hahaha! izzie, yes i loved JGS in YAB...his luscious locks are indeed to die for ;-) and yes, they remind me of Guh-ro no less...all good things just bring us back to YAI no less, hahahahaha! delightful! :-)

Oh, samgetang, so wonderful to know more about you!!! :)

So you are freelance clothing designer? Wow, so much fund to be your own boss, isn't it? How's business? :)

I too LOVE reading and watching Kdramas...we have so much in common!!! :)

And I second all your comments about Dramabeans being the place where I get to know such terrifically wacky folks such as yourself, izzie, sumee, anais and others...

and have a whale of a time feeding our Moony addiction... :)

the best thing about being your own boss and being in the fashion biz is you get to swoon over YAI's photos whenever you feel like it :-) and pass it off as research and development :-)

but who am i kidding? :-)

hahaha!

im sure we have more in common than just reading and kdrama....excited to know more about you and all the other gals here as well...

for instance, sumee is a stylist, my kind of gal :-) , anais is also a teacher just like you (must be a history teacher cos im just so amazed by her overflowing knowledge on the subject...am i right, anais?) and izzie....hey izzie...let me guess, are you a copywriter maybe or somebody in communications or advertising perhaps? just a wild guess! you are so creative with words that it would all be a waste if you've been doing another thing? unless that other thing is also something that you are brilliant in, like maybe photography (cos u seem to be so visually expressive with yr words...)

0

I agree with you samgetang!!!

Soooo much freedom to moon over the Moony to your heart's content as your own boss!!!!! hehe... :)

And I agree with you about izzie being gifted linguistically and visually...and she should be in the creative arts scene cos it would TRAGIC to waste such talents in any other sector.. hehe... :)

About you say you look like Ugly Betty...well...I resemble Miss Piggy...so you are not alone in thinking the mind pictures izzie thought of for us is waaaayyy off...except for the ASS-KICKING part....hehe...THAT I dig...hehe :)

hehe. I have mind pictures of you, since we have no avatars here: samgetang: Ha Ji Won (Full House); koreamdramalover: Nakama Yukie (Gokusen); sumee: Han Chae Young. i'm yet to come up with one for anais... :)

Hehe...izzie, thanks so much for making me laugh... :)

you are so astute...I am of mixed parentage - Chinese mother and Indonesian father...so choosing a Japanese actress is quite interesting... :)

I found Nakama Yukie's photo in Mysoju...
oooohhhh she is so beautiful...
I am definitely not in her league...
even though we are both fair-skinned,
with wide-set eyes...
but Yukie is such a beauty, while I am not...
but thanks for the kind thought, izzie... :)

...

you found mind pictures for 4 of the commentors...but what about one for you?

hmmm....would you mind if I try?

The characters that come to my mind are either :
Sohn Ye Jin (Personal Taste/White Night) or
Eugene (Baker King) or
Lee Chae Young (The Fugitive).

Hehe... :)

Ooopss sorry!!! It is not Lee Chae Young (The Fugitive).

I was thinking of Lee Na Young (The Fugitive). :)

@koreandramalover: forgive for thinking about an ass-kicking teacher when I chat with you. I can't help it. :)

JB,

If another Yoo Ah In photoshoots going to be up, the whole of Dramabeaners will run amok while screaming and pulling their hair off, and chanting Yoo Ah In all the way to the psychiatrist's office. In Thailand.

I would be the first one in queue at the airport.

hahaha! i knew it ;-) i slept last night after having loads of fun reading all yr posts in the other YAI picture post by javabeans and thought these guys have no plans of sleeping at all ;-) hahaha!

i woke up only to almost have a heart attack when i checked in here and saw all the other posts there which i havent read yet when i signed off. you three guys are just amazing! ;-)

and more heart burn happened when i saw this new picture post by javabeans. can you believe this girl/woman/dramarecap goddess? she's one-of-a-kind for pushing all our buttons to world-destruction! hahaha!

i don't know how am i going to live/survive if she posts more photos later of YAI...or even MY and SJK ;-)

i guess, you should try to get some rest/sleep before you launch again into another comment-blasting with the other two crazies, izzie and koreandramalover...hahaha! or else your boss might smell something fishy when u next get to work...oh it's saturday tomorrow...do u have work then?

seriously samgetang I do not even require a heater ....roar.... ;-)
But how did YAI manage to shoot in Bangkok when all these clothes on ...
when-ever I am in Thailand i am hardly wearing any ..just the minimal bits which are mandatory to say the least ! kudos to him ..such hard Work ..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

0

being in the fashion biz, i know its not all glamour. far from it. modelling especially for a magazine photoshoot like this requires a lot of patience and hardwork from the models. all the hours and being exposed to the elements (sun, cold, etc..) require a lot of discipline and tenacity. that's why some models have the reputation of being not so cooperative and some become bitchy, to say the least. but the true blue professional models are yet another kind altogether -- they know what is required of their job and display grace and maturity despite all the challenges. im sure YAI had his share of such in these shoots...

0

totally agreed samgetang I have faced models being all furious & totally Bitchy ** when they are asked to do something they don't like even though you are getting PAID ! that gets really nasty for people like me who are the stylists ..moreover yoo ah in being a star will surely have had a tantrum or 2 ..but i totally will never mind that in this case ! ;-)

sumee, you are a stylist! that's so cool! :-)

@samgetang: "that’s why some models have the reputation of being not so cooperative and some become bitchy, to say the least."

this is why i resolved not to get into fashion photography! :) I don't have much patience to deal with divas. I only do nature and macro - mother nature rarely throws a fit, and when she does you have reasons to respect her.

@sumee: "moreover yoo ah in being a star will surely have had a tantrum or 2 ..but i totally will never mind that in this case !"

hehe... the one reason I will force myself to do a fashion shoot! if he throws tantrums, I will continue shooting and make it all look artistic like a rage-themed series. :P (is there a cure for this obsession?)

izzie dear...the question is, DO you want to be cured of the obsession with the Moon? :)

Haha! Koreandramalover, ur right! I might get that cure alright, but will never ingest it! :)
