Some of these High Cut shoots are hit or miss, but you can never go wrong with So Ji-sub doing what he does best: smolder. He’s really someone who’s turned it into an art form, to the point that he’s kind of turned acting into modeling with movement (which I find awesome and unintentionally Zoolanderesque). Try it — pick up an old episode of something and test it out. It’ll be a fun way to spend the afternoon. *sits back with popcorn*
He certainly makes a suit — and subsequent lack thereof — look good, that’s for sure. I can’t say the concept is that inspired though, because the cover picture sets up all sorts of expectations, and then doesn’t deliver on the saucy setup. Boo. Was the model with half a dress only available for half a day?
So Ji-sub has kept rather busy this year, with the 20-episode drama Ghost and his current action thriller movie Company Man, where he plays a salaryman… at a company that contracts out killers. He decides he wants out of the biz, which upsets his boss. Methinks you don’t want to piss off higher-ups if they’re professional hitmen. Just my unsolicited advice for the day.
He also made an appearance on variety show Infinity Challenge and was surprisingly a good sport about it, since they made him look absolutely ridiculous. The magazine asked him if he’d consider another appearance, and he laughed it off, saying that his variety stint was only looked upon favorably because it was a one-time thing. Aw, too bad, because the guy who was willing to wear the funny costumes for a laugh was my favorite, even over Smolder Guy.
Company Man is in theaters now.
