Cha Seung-won shaves his cow mustache

HA! Cha Seung-won has finally shaved off his facial hair, showing off his new clean-cut image in a photo he uploaded to his me2day account on the 15th. Cha wrote the accompanying comment: “I’ve cut off the facial hair at last. You’ll be able to find out the reason by watching Episode 5. I’m Dokko Jin!”

The “cow” descriptor comes from the fact that the shape his hair made was the Korean word 소, meaning cow, as pointed out to Dokko Jin in Best Love’s Episode 3 by Ae-jung’s nephew. Ever since, Jin has been self-conscious about it, going so far as to cover up his face when talking to Ae-jung — it’s one of those things you may have never thought of, but once you see it, you just can’t un-see it.

I just love that the proud movie star is motivated to fuss with his appearance because of a crush on a girl. It’s exactly the thing Hwang Tae-kyung (Jang Geun-seok) did in an early episode of You’re Beautiful, when Mi-nyeo expressed a preference for his older hairstyle, only to have him immediately go to the salon to bring it back. And then go through verbal backflips to explain that he changed it because HE liked it, not because she had anything to do with it AT ALL. Can’t wait to see how Jin explains the change.

Granted, the 소 was much more pronounced in Athena (below, left), when it had practically had a life of its own. It actually doesn’t look so bad in Best Love, but I’ve been wanting to see him clean-shaven for so long that I’m doing a little happy dance now. Thank you, Hong sisters!

Episode 5 airs on Wednesday, May 18.

Wow, he does look really young!

I personally loved the facial hair, even in Athena, but I'm sure I'll grow to like the clean-shaven look, too. Still, the hair was pretty smokin' hot.

yea..i personnally am NOT a fan of facial hair on men..but cha champion managed to look good w. it in athena...more masculine???

Required fields are marked *

yeah, he looks so young. maybe it;s the reason why he had it grown in the first place, because he has baby face =). Anyway, i think another reason he shaved it in episode 5 is because his rival is so clean and neat =). Maybe Ae-jung will voice it out, so I think he also wants to compete on that factor. =)

Gosh, it's only monday... we, who thrives on JB & GF's blogs, needs to wait till thursday =(. waaaah, that's 3 long days away

I had to do a double take, I saw the picture and then read the title, back to the picture. He looks so different, it will take some getting use to since he's had that facial hair for some time now.

don't you just hate it when people point things out you never noticed and then when they do you can't help but see it every time. Haha. Poor Jin- we call know how Tae Kyung (YAB) went and tried over and over to explain that his change was his decision so i can't wait wait to see with Jin does. Since Jin is older he should be more mature then Tae Kyung. But hey they're guy.... and infront of a crush everything goes out the window.

You already have facial hair. In fact, your whole body is covered in hair.

However, if you wish to shave shapes into your face to attract Miss Lee Da Hae, I am sure she will like you, because you are adorable just as you are!!!

I think it makes him more in character. Pantyman looks good whether he is wearing weird shorts, brocolli hairdo to cow facial hair...he still oozes hotness!!! To be honest I was hoping for a change, I wanted to see him cleanly shaven like he was in his much earlier movies! Hong sisters I thank you! I cant wait for episode 5!

Actually, I always thought he kinda looks like me....you know - big hands, big feet, big ears? He's much taller than me though, in case you haven't noticed. Now that he's shaved off his moustache, I reckon we really look like twins now. Except for the voice. In case you haven't noticed, my voice's a bit on the high side.
