Lee Jong-seok and Kim Woo-bin strut their stuff
by | July 12, 2013 | 118 Comments

So this is literally just a happy photo post, because I saw pretty pictures of School 2013 costars Lee Jong-seok and Kim Woo-bin together, and it made me do an embarrassing dance. I’d show you the dance but javabeans said she’d stop being my friend if I ever did that again, so… yeah…

The pair of bros teamed up for a Fall/Winter shoot for Trugen, which is either a catwalk-off for Who Wore It Best, or a series of couple looks. I’m gonna go with couple looks. And hey, you figure they spent all of School in the same clothes too, so they were always destined for matchy bromance-wear.

Lee Jong-seok is busy slaying noonas with his current drama I Hear Your Voice, in between shooting sageuk film The Face Reader. He’s got a swimming movie lined up next (called No Breathing), and that’s just for starters. Busy, busy. Kim Woo-bin will return to dramaland in the fall with Heirs, and in the meantime has been shooting gangster sequel film Friend 2, which is where the stills below are from.

I included them because they’re practically a photo shoot anyway — it’s just Kim Woo-bin’s son-of-a-mobster character (spawn of Jang Dong-gun, no less) arriving at a mob funeral where he’ll run into the man responsible for his father’s death (played by Yoo Oh-sung). It’s probably a good thing real gangsters don’t look this good. Trouble with a capital T.

I Hear Your Voice airs Wednesdays/Thursdays on SBS, and Friend 2 is planning for a release later this year.

      • 1.4.1 Rossa E

        Ha ha 😉 I thought I was the only one think so…

  2. redfox

    thank you.
    the hard day – erased. overwritten. I just watched School, for an estonian girl, they cried too much, but otherwise, I was sold.

    • 2.1 redfox

      oh and y´know, can´t help it: Heeere come the men in blaaack!

    • 2.2 JustSomebody

      OMG you are the first estonian (besides me, hehe) who i have heard that watches kdramas ,my friends find that it`s weird that i`m watching them .
      But anyway, just finished School 2013 and currently watching I hear your voice with LJS and love both of the shows.
      Can`t leave out that, god they look good.

      • 2.2.1 redfox

        haha, wow, I thought there was no one. I get “that look” as well, when I mention I watch them. since the new rules say no other languages than english or occasional korean then just: kaunist pühapäevaõhtut.
        when did you discover kdramas and how? and who are your favorite actors?

  3. owl

    Whoo hoo and a happy weekend to you, too (k, checking out pretty pics in close up again and again)

    • 3.1 Shukmeister

      I just want to be that fur collar…. 😎

  4. Aryast

    My thought immediately was… “What in the actual eff?” In a good way.

  5. onewcondition

    You just can’t deny the manly charisma and bromance overflowing from these pics *o*

  6. Mystisith

    *Stares at the pretty in a respectful silence.*

  7. Rashell

    I just….love these two. Having little pangs for the bromance of School.

  8. noernov

    This is double treat…hello weekend 😀

  9. JADE

    Lol I died screaming when I saw the post, and then came back to look at the boys in pretty clothes. Just the thing to cheer me up before my midterm starts! Here’s hoping they’ll do something together again so that I get to see the bromance some more 😀

    P.S. They look so fine in these pictures and Woo Bin looks especially good in that suit he’s strutting in (You go, boy! Strut your stuff!)

    • 10.1 Alinka

      Much looooooveeee for the pretteeeeee. If those ain’t ooze masculinity, I don’t know what would.

  11. 11 Mimi

    These two never disappoint like can we get a sequel for the drama or something they have natural bromance chemistry they don’t even have to try. And then I scroll down and see my woo bin (yes I said my lol) looking good in the fitted suit oh my, looks like I have a movie to look forward to :))

  12. 12 MariD

    Soo… I can’t be the only one that thinks Kim Woo-bin looks like TOP right?? Or am I going though BigBang withdrawal and see him everywhere??

    • 12.1 Shukmeister

      I’d like to see the two of them hug. And yes.

    • 12.2 hpn88

      you are not alone my friend. they both have the same face shape and carry themselves very similarly

    • 12.3 blegh

      he looks more like Hyunbin to me. especially the 3rd picture of him in black suit. I saw secret garden last month. after knowing about woo bin. and first thought that came to me was, omg he looks exactly like woobin except less badass!

    • 12.4 MeeisLee

      Omg!!! I was thinking the exact same thing! I’m waiting for a comeback from both! I’m not sure if I’ve seen Woo Bin look so gooooooooood. Ahhh…

    • 12.5 snow1081

      Yes I see Big Bang TOP in Woobin but taller and younger and more unique looking 🙂 (IN a nice way of course)

      • 12.5.1 MariD

        So I had to go google this because.. What else do you do @ 1am..
        Kim Woo Bin is 23 and 6’2″
        Choi Seung Hyun (TOP) is 25 and 5′ 11″
        Not that big of and age or height difference…

    • 12.6 Minaya

      It’s the eyebrows and the expression, definitely.

      I have a weakness for Kim Woo Bin’s eyebrows and Lee Jong-seok lips.

  13. 13 Ren

    Oh, man. The boys looking dapper as always. And I may be a little in love with Kim Woobin’s brows. Strong brows. Respect.

    • 13.1 blegh

      man brows!

  14. 14 Perrie

    Kim freaking Woo Bin!
    Don’t get me wrong, Jong Seok looks great too but…those stills….UHMMMMMMMMMF
    Bless you for sharing

    • 14.1 paper

      ^ x100

  15. 15 crazedlu

    aw yeah ~

  16. 16 BellaMafia

    No manner legs, Woo Bin? Poor stylist.. lol.

  17. 17 OMG

    UMMMF….. Jong-Seok is hot and all…but all my eyes could focus on was Kim Woo-bin…i mean those stills…had me dying!!! *Must book a flight to korea ASAP!!!*

  18. 18 LoveIt

    I am sorry, as mmuch as I love these boys, nobody wears Trugen like Lee Min Ho. Noone!

    • 18.1 katmoo

      Damn it… now I need to go look. *searches… drops dead*

    • 18.2 the68monkey

      I’ve decided after reading your post that your name suits you well, LoveIt! 😀

    • 18.3 Birdie

      I am with you on this. Trugen is just not the same without Lee Min-Ho.

    • 18.4 maldita


  19. 19 hpn88

    holy hell kim woo bin in those stills is…words fail

  20. 20 kdramapedia


  21. 21 Cass

    Both of them will be like bestie

    Jung Woo-sung & Lee Jung-jae!

  22. 22 katmoo

    umm… my speech reverted to that of an 8 month old for a little bit… all I could say was “Ma ah da” Sorry boys, Noona needs a minute to resolidify from my puddle. Now I must save these pictures for keeping.

    Anyone else have a moment of when did Kim Woo Bin become a “MAN”? Damn!

  23. 23 Mar

    How can he look so good in a funeral, damn he’s hotttttt

  24. 24 Jandoe

    Kim Woo Bin looks SO GOOD in those stills. SO GOOD homg.

  25. 25 aulia

    in first photo, I think Lee Jong suk know truely how we love his lips. Gaah, can’t breath.

  26. 26 canxi

    OMG Kim Woo Bin STAAAHHHHHP! Wait, no…don’t stop. Ugh, I dunno if I was there, it would be two funerals.

  27. 27 Z

    Can I be honest? I couldn’t even tell them apart in the photo shoot pictures. I finally had to decipher one from the other by comparing their eyebrows. Looks like the “Who Wore it Best” contest ends in a tie.

  28. 28 On a QIHM High

    Lee Jong Seok! You should get a gold medal for how fast you’ve destroyed my bias list 😛 SO CUTE in IHYV and SO HOT here 🙂 Though I definitely like your pre time jump Su-ha get-up/hair the best.

    (Also, please don’t kill me, but I don’t find Woo Bin to be good-looking. I don’t know why. *embodies self in bubble wrap and hides in a corner*)

    • 28.1 katmoo

      You better hide!!! Just kidding. Though I may need to come pop some of your bubbles. *pop*

      • 28.1.1 mary

        I second that! 😛

        *pop* *pop* *pop*

        • On a QIHM High


    • 28.2 MariD

      How?? Why??? How?? He is my choice out of the two. Picture him with red hair ( like in White Christmas) do you see the hotness?? No?! Ok girls get her!!

      • 28.2.1 On a QIHM High

        Noooo spare me! At least for three more weeks? I still need to finish IHYV 😛

    • 28.3 Airyn

      Awww. Well, to each her own. They each have a different kind of charm, so… 😉

      (Ooh, I like popping bubble wrap…)

      • 28.3.1 On a QIHM High

        Lol maybe wrong choice of defense 😛 The bubble wrap will be gone before I know it!

  29. 29 KDaddict

    Holy Moly!
    Those lips on one. Those brows on the other. Those cheek bones on both. I think the eyes have it in this shoot.

  30. 30 Babs

    These two boys… WOW, lord save me from the evils of kdrama stars and their photo shoots.

  31. 31 matinsoleil

    T.h.a.n.k Y.o.u !!

    The last pictures of Kim Woo-bin T_T

  32. 32 KDaddict

    KWB is wearing a tie pin in 1st photo! Can’t imagine anyone else looking so un-dorky w a tie pin!

  33. 33 Joy





  34. 34 Laica

    No Breathing, yep. That says it all.

  35. 35 Cynthia

    Thank you, GF!
    Just. Thank. You.

  36. 36 ninji

    I mean I know they are handsome, heck I even think they are most of the time, but sometimes they just look so much like aliens, both of them. They’re like the handsome-hot-cute-model-aliens-bffs!

  37. 37 anais

    hummuna hummuna hummuna

    Kim Woo Bin as the gangster’s son, in a dark suit & shades…

    hummuna hummuna hummuna

  38. 38 Andrea

    I think I just died. Too much pretty, too much fangirling.

  39. 39 jademwong

    Pretty picture posts are always welcomed! And I can not get over how much woo.bin looks like TOP’s younger brother. The resemblance is uncanny.

  40. 40 Sweetyoon

    Am I the only one who doesn’t find Woobin so hot in the photos hoot? >_< Normally he's so hot and playful but his features have been so strong! In the second and third pictures his expressions are just a tad too strong for me. All his boyish playful manner is gone! It just doesn't quite match Lee JongSeok's. In the suit, he looks amazing. 🙂

    • 40.1 Rovi

      Maybe it’s the hair? I don’t much like his hair when it’s styled like that, makes him look like his “Vampire Idol” days.

  41. 41 doomy

    oh good lord, he looks EVEN TALLER in a suit. dayum. also the comments section. what a happy place this post is.

  42. 42 trotwood

    So you know that dance, too, Girlfriday? Yeah, my friends asked me not to do that one anymore as well. I almost did it at customs in South Korea when I saw the public service spot they have on continuous loop starring Hyun Bin. Thought they wouldn’t let me in the country.

    But these, two?!?! I have to keep reminding myself that I am too old to have such thoughts about them. But still, did the dance anyway (alone in room this time).

  43. 43 alert

    Noona slayers. I love that word!

  44. 44 MeeisLee

    I totally didn’t just save these pictures so I can view them when I’m having a bad day… nopes, not at all.

  45. 45 kirana

    this is the best gift for my weekend. big thanks *throws confetti*

  46. 46 LOVE


  47. 47 pogo


    Come here and let noona pet you, please.

  48. 48 Viki

    OMG HOT!


    So…Jong Suk is hot and cute. While Woo Bin is hot…he’s not exactly handsome but you can’t help but find him brooding and sexy. 🙂

  49. 49 QT765

    The bromance >____<
    Kim Woobin was made to wear tux he just look damn fine xD

  50. 50 Jackeline

    Woobin in his stills look so much older/more mature. 😮

    I feel like when Jongsuk dresses in a suit (as on IHYV), he kind of looks like a tall boy in a man’s clothes. But Woobin… woah. Or maybe it’s just the makeup/angle in those stills? Haha. Either way, they’re both hot, and that’s all that matters. 😛
