Oh Snap! Yeo Jin-gu, still jailbait
by | February 6, 2014 | 128 Comments

I was writing this other post about Yeo Jin-gu looking at a new movie project, and got distracted by this new photo shoot that cropped up online. I promise to get right back to that news story… as soon as I stop staring at these snapshots… but figured that something this good merited an entry in the Oh Snap! files.

Enjoy, folks.

    Jailbait means you shouldn’t DO anything. Looking however…I will indulge in lots of that.

  3. JoAnne

    So unfair. I’ll be a senior citizen before he’s legal.

    • 3.1 Serena B

      I hear ya. *sigh*

  4. grace

    eh aint he too young to pose like that??
    still he has grown into a handsome boy…

  5. Kristine

    Gorgeous and such a talented actor too!

  6. ilikemangos

    ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

    Why is he still 16 and why is time being so unfair to us?

  7. javabeans

    Just for funsies… remember what he looked like in 2008?

    • 7.1 Cindy

      Wow……….now he makes me sound like a perv lol ><

      • 7.1.1 YaniahSahm

        I think some of us, looking at his photos, must feel a little guilty … Should I look to Song Seung-Heon or Jo In-Sung’s photos to feel at ease…??? Uhmmm…

        • 7.1.1.1 Bandi

          What a coincidence~ he played the younger version of Jo in sung before xD

    • 7.2 mary

      LOL I suddenly lost interest in the photoshoot. Thank you.

      Is this what kdrama people mean when they say “causing the disease and giving the cure”?

    • 7.3 okdubu

      i am dying

    • 7.4 pogo

      I remember him as Little Iljimae from that year, lol.

      Is there any actor whose younger self he HASN’T played?

      • 7.4.1 Rose

        Well, Yeo Jin Goo has played the younger selves of Lee Jun Ki, Jang Hyuk (twice), Jung Kyung Ho, Ji Sung, Cha In Pyo, Lee Bum Soo, Ji Chang Wook, Kim Soo Hyun and Yoochun. Quite impressive, isn’t it?

        • 7.4.1.1 pogo

          also young Ji Sung and Joo Ji-hoon. That’s some long list!

          • 7.4.1.1.1 Bandi

            He also played the younger version of Jo in sung in frozen flower

    • 7.5 dmohican14

      Ok, now I feel bad. Can we just fastforward two years so I can look at this boy without feeling guilty?

      • 7.5.1 deestar

        i dont have to feel guilty coz im younger than him
        ;)

        • 7.5.1.1 Mrs.Jang Guem Suk

          Lol agree he is 3 months younger than me so no I do not feel any type of guilt lol

    • 7.6 Sako

      And now I feel like the biggest creep ever. God save my soul

    • 7.7 Lalita

      I’m pretty sure you’re trying to reach the teenage beanies, unnie. I understand. And us older ladies have but a laugh. Right? Right?

    • 7.8 hanie

      NO!!!! JB, don’t remind me~
      *dead*
      bb really need to grow up, go to army & come back as a legal man tbh.

      *walk away dripping with guilt*

    • 7.9 Burned Once

      Yikes! I am having a flashback of Michael Jackson persona.

    • 7.10 Giselle

      And please, don’t forget the sound of his gorgeous voice!!! C’mon, his voice doesn’t sound like a teenager anymore!!!
      I know, I’am a Noona and I don’t care!!!! Lol!

      Guys, did you see the ep of Running Man with him? I barely contain myself!!! :D

    • 7.11 neener

      Is he really 16?!?! How can this be legal?

      and damn what a cute little YJG!

      • 7.11.1 Raine

        I have students his age….*shakes head*

    • 7.12 jambee

      love that nothin’ change about his face ^^
      #pervnoona :D

    • 7.13 anais

      I loved him as the weetle Iljimae.

    • 7.14 Kokare

      I had a brain fart and had to think how old was I in 2008??? Not that old right??? Then I remembered. I was prego with my first son. Yikes…

  8. Kimara

    H. O. T, little Oppa. You’re like so goodlooking its terrible. Thanks JB, am walking home right now and i can barely contain my squeal. So awesome!! Squeeeeee!!!

  9. Cindy

    Isn’t he the same guy from “The Moon That Embraces The Sun” ?

    • 9.1 Raine

      Yes, yes he is.

  10. 10 pbjtimeee

    Went by the Korean age and thought we were dong-gap… except he’s actually 16. WHYYYYYYY.

  11. 11 Melmel

    This post just made my day tbh.

  12. 12 Kimara

    H. O. T little Oppa. You’re like so goodlooking its terrible. Thanks JB, am walking home right now and i can barely contain my squee. Squeeeeeee!!

  13. 13 Kimara

    Double comment, whoa didn’t know. Yeah JB, he was so tiny in 2008, can’t belive he’s grown so much in just 6 years, its appalling yet wonderful. We’ll soon see our young Yeo Ji Gu do some good leading man acting work. Just a couple more years and we’ll have that.
    Also if he grew so much from 2008 till now, who can guess what he’ll look like in say maybe 6 more years?

  14. 14 Kelinci Biru

    Yeah. Not fair that he’s 16. On the bright side, since he didn’t look the part, I’m happy he starts getting lead role.

    I hope he will be wise in choosing dramas and movies.

  15. 15 JD

    Anyone else think this kid is on his way to becoming the Lee Beom Soo of his generation? Between the acting talent and the looks, I hope they would get to play brothers or father/son in a really challenging project.

    • 15.1 Chocobana

      Huh? I’m curious…why Lee Bum-Soo?

      • 15.1.1 k lava

        Hmm yeah …. im thinking he’ll be bigger than Lee min ho, Song joong ki and probably ,PROBABLY reach Hyun bin status this kid is already an A list in my books.

        • 15.1.1.1 vereelimee

          Agreed. Especially with his voice so deep, it makes him extra watchable.

    • 15.2 Kiara

      Yeo Jin-gu is his own man and have his own reputation as an actor. He doesn’t need to become someone else. He is the best of his generation, I cant say the same for Lee Beom Soo although I love him to pieces.

    • 15.3 anon

      More like Lee Byung-hun, I would say.

  16. 16 grace

    suddenly i feel like a grandma…

    • 16.1 YaniahSahm

      Noona…you don’t sell yourself out saying that…hehehehe
      You feel guilty, but always call yourself a Noona.
      Hehehehe

      • 16.1.1 Midnightwatcher

        Hahha! So true so true *clap hands*
        Young man, you should study hard, graduate and come back to me 4 years later, mkay?

  17. 17 kopytko

    He will be hot in a few years. Like REALLY hot.
    Thank goodness I am immune to minors’ charms. I would feel very inadequate otherwise.

    But the kid got to wear some nice watches :)

  18. 18 okdubu

    NO.

    NO NO.

    keeps scrolling.

    OMG SO MANY PICTURES?

    drools.

  19. 19 Emma

    THIS IS CRUEL POST, JB.

    What 16 y/o looks like this though? I was so uncool and awkward at 16 and he looks at least 5 years older and so handsome to boot (and talented obviously, he outacts dudes twice his age all the time).

    When he’s 25 people are literally going to start drooling in his presence. Totally ridiculous.

    • 19.1 Chocobana

      And it would feel so good to have discovered him from his earlier years when he becomes a leading man :D

  20. 20 Kimara

    Soon we’ll see our young Yeo Jin Gu do some leading man work as he’s already got the mark for it. Yeah JB, he grew so much in just 6 yrs, its appalling yet amazing.
    Wonder what he’ll look like in say 6 more years. Anyone got an idea?

  21. 21 Steph

    It’s weird to look at these pictures and then remember he was the same little boy in A Frozen Flower and Ja Myung Go which was just a few years ago.

  22. 22 pogo

    WHOA. That’s a lot of pictures!

    He’s totally the next Yoo Seung-ho, I think. He looks great in here, but looking at him in motion just kills any jailbaiting urges – he looks so young, and more than that he moves like an extremely young boy too (I noticed this in Potato Star, when he was supposed to be 24).

    I’m totally waiting for him to grow up and then pair up with Kim Yoo-jung or Kim So-hyun as bona fide leads in their own right.

  23. 23 tura

    He’s cute and actually younger than me, two years isn’t that much right? Do I get to drool and squeal without being jail, I suddenly want to k!*s him. I won’t be jailed if I do right?

  24. 24 Ndhochoco

    Scrolling..

    Scrolling..

    Scrolling..

    So this is what people mean with guilty pleasure..

    *while still staring at the picts*

  25. 25 Julia the Berkshire Beanie

    Wow. Some child actors get awkward looking as they grow up, but this one … Wow just Wow. What’s his next drama project? I want to see this more grown up version playing lead.

  26. 26 Yoori

    How is that he [looks] manlier than some of the current [older] male actors right now?!

    Oh how I wish I was 16 again …

    • 26.1 anon

      That’s why I couldn’t get into Moon that embraces the Sun after Kim Su Hyun came in.. YJK looked older and bigger than KSH.

  27. 27 Shadow-chan

    Goddammit, usually I’m not really interested in younger guys, but how can someone so young look so… Well, not young?

    Did I already mention that 16 would be totally legal in my country? Mwahaha.

    • 27.1 k lava

      BWAHAHAHAAAAAAAA hilarious.

  28. 28 jandoe

    boy will definitely break hearts once he’s legal!

  29. 29 Aliiice

    That is a loooooooooot of makeup (brow powder, eyeliner, eyeshadow, caked on foundation and powder) for such a naturally wholesome looking guy.

    …which makes him an awesome contender for the next generation of vampiric prosecutors.

    Le siiiigh. Why were the boys not this pretty when I was in high school???

  30. 30 skelly

    I can only be glad that my teenage daughters do not frequent dramabeans, and so are thus protected from any distracting influences such as these photos (the ones with the chess set would thrill their geeky hearts, I think).

  31. 31 samja

    wow. he really grew up. damn.

  32. 32 eli_n

    Suddenly remembered what Kwang-soo said in a recent rm episode, when the cast were all marvelling at the contrast between his super low manly man voice and his actual age:

    “Tbh, he doesn’t even LOOK 18 (korean age) either!”

    Oh indeed he does not.

  33. 33 Jillia

    Stop it, Yeo Jin Gu! Just stop looking so… DAMN good… Damn I can’t even…

    Just choose your next drama already, so we can drool over you for a couple more hours each week. PLEASE… pretty please! I mean and Kim Yoo Jung as your leading lady.

    Well NOW I want to travel into the future watching those dramas. :D

  34. 34 Pearl

    Obviously I’m a minority here but those faces kind of scared me… Like something out of horror movies. Too much make up maybe.

    • 34.1 Nonsense

      Me to. Weird, huh… For me he looks kind of scary in this photoshoot… *runs to hide from the fangirls”.

  35. 35 Laica

    He’s the only reason I would ever want to be sixteen again.

  36. 36 Yue-lie

    Ok! Please Mister Cops, arrest me!
    Put handcuffs on me!

    Oh god, these images…my mind…

    The handcuffs are not helping!

    I need some Cha Seung Won’s pics to re adjust my judgements!

    • 36.1 Grandma

      Cha Seung Won are you nuts! I would need life flight. I’m having trouble breathing now.
      Maybe tomorrow I’ll be ready (snicker).

    • 36.2 pogo

      I was fortified with a good dose of So Ji-sub earlier, but I’m pretty immune to this kid, for the most part. I can see the appeal, and he’s going to be phenomenally attractive in five years’ time, but to me he’s still a teenage boy.

  37. 37 ...

    wooooow… i got Chuck Bass vibes from some of the pics! can’t believe he’s so young!!!

  38. 38 LangitBiru

    brb, put myself into jail. when i was his age, all the boys around me are not looking HOT like that. is he attend regular school or home school?

  39. 39 matinsoleil

    Be sure that I enjoyed the pictures DB!!! Thanks :)

  40. 40 Fab

    Those photos go on forever! I had to look away at some point…It’s OK that he is a minor right, right… It’s complicated.

    Anywho, ouri YJG is growing up nicely!

  41. 41 Grandma

    (sound of lighting match…inhale…sigh) We will forgive you for not paying strict attention to your work.
    lol

  42. 42 CrazyGalMo

    Oh Yeo Jin-gu. Thanks to him, I’m a noona-fan at the age of 18.

  43. 43 TS

    He’s cute, but I’m far from 12.

    • 43.1 pogo

      That’s how I feel too – if I was close to his age, I would be all over this but I’ve got old enough that I kind of like the people I lust after to be in their twenties and beyond.

  44. 44 lenrasoon

    I can’t even look at these pictures without feeling that Chris Hansen will pop out any minute telling me “why don’t you take a seat right over there?” >_<

    I'm 12 years older than him, so he's just like a cute little brother lol.

    /i'm out

    • 44.1 Cynthia

      Lol! Good one!
      :)

  45. 45 ziggystardust

    I’m suddenly reminded of when I see something upsetting and have to share it with my best friend so she’s upset with me. Now eeeeeveryone feels vaguely guilty. :p

  46. 46 Nokcha

    Duaam! Kid’s got lots of …..charisma!

  47. 47 red

    I remember first noticing him in Giant and wishing we could fast forward to when he was old enough to be the lead of his own drama. Pleasantly surprised it happened sooner. And absolutely love potato star which I started and continued because of Yeo Jin GU. I can’t believe he’s playing 24 in that drama

  48. 48 kDkiddo

    He looks so sexy I can eat him up ! Too bad im 3 years older ! Omgaaaaad

  49. 49 VanillaSalt

    ugghhh why must he be 16 (although it wouldnt be considered jailbait for me bc im 19 lol)

  50. 50 Mandy

    I honestly don’t find him attractive in an appealing kinda way. He’s cute but still a teenage boy trying to be too old for his age. Obviously in the minority.

    I do hope he plays more younger teen/high school roles until he gets to the age when he can be a leading man. It’s funny many older actors keep playing high school students and then somehow they shove the kids to do adult roles. It just looks unconvincing. I do find him awesome as an actor though, so whenever his time comes, I’ll be super excited to see how he follows through with his career.
